We all knew that US Cellular was going to be one of the five major US carriers carrying the Galaxy SIII, and all the other carriers priced them equally. So we were wondering how US Cellular priced theirs. Well now we know. They will be $300 for the 16GB model and $350 for the 32GB model, but both will come with $100 mail in rebates. So as long as you don’t forget to mail it in, it’ll be the same price as all the other carriers. For a carrier with good prices, I say that sounds fair enough.
Full press release:
“To follow up on the exciting announcement of U.S. Cellular’s upcoming launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III, we wanted you to know the newly released pricing. We will be selling the 16 GB version at $199.99 and the 32 GB version at $249.99, both after a $100 mail-in rebate. Customers can preorder the device beginning June 12 at uscellular.com/gs3 and it will be available in stores and online in July. Customers who purchase the Samsung Galaxy S III from U.S. Cellular receive benefits no one else offers, including new devices faster without resigning contracts, free Battery Swap and the only points-based rewards program in the industry.”
