HP Offers $50 Gift Cards with Palm Purchases

hp gift card for palm webos Earlier this month we discussed the addition of the full line of Palm's WebOS-based smartphones to HP's Wireless Central online phone store. Now HP has sweetened the offer even further by adding a free $50 gift card to the HP Home & Home Office Store with any of the "free" AT&T webOS smartphones with a 2-year contract.

No official date is set for the end of the promotion but as always, it's a limited "while supplies last " offer. The blue AT&T Pixi Plus and Verizon and Sprint phones are not part of this promotion. AT&T's Pre Plus and Pixi Plus are the newest webOS handsets, officially hitting the market in May of this year.

See how much FREE will cost you

I looked into this and its a great deal for a new customer but for an upgrading ATT customer not so so much. After being told that I would have to change my package and that I could not keep my grandfathered data plan I checked Amazon Wireless and for $49.99 and free shipping I could keep everything. Bottom Line:

$49.99-$9.99 S&H Amazon cost $40.00 plus savings of @$30.00 on plan each month.

HP (But really a 3rd party company) Free phone (value it $49.99) and $50.00=$99.99 HP gift card and plan that cost @ $30 more a month. In three months time I break even and save over $600 during the next 2 years. YMMV

I'm jumping ship. I've just ordered my iPhone 4, the first mobile phone I've bought in years. A fond farewell to everything Palm!

Phenominal device no doubt. Just checked one out that my friend got the other day. That is a beautiful piece of hardware. Not a friend of the walled garden philosophy, but that things pretty hot right outta the box.

Hate to see you go, but it's like reading the Declaration of Independence ... after repeated abuses with no end in sight, regardless of how many concessions and attempts ... they had to make the decision to change things.

HP has to get as many people to WEB OS as possible by offering these gimmicks until web os 2 is released and they give people real reasons to jump ship.

It is going to be so interesting to see this Mobile OS race play out. I don't think it is going to be like the desktop OS where we had a clear winner with Windows. Since people change phones every 2 years or even sooner it is going to be a lot harder to keep people from jumping ship. Of course if people have a large inventory of paid apps that is going to be a holding point but with so many good free add-supported apps,.... that also plays into things.

I do think that we are just at the very beginnings and all players still have a shot. Apple, HP, Microsoft, RIM, Nokia, and Google all duking it out, what a joyous day and age to live in.
