I searched around slickdeals and did not find anything about this.
So here goes......

I went to Best Buy to purchase an iPhone 5 16GB with the 10% coupon on Open Box items since they had it listed online at $594.99.
I was looking at the options because they had both the colors and had different carriers as well, ATT/Verizon/Sprint!
Then the Mobile department manager said that the phone was $494.99, and I asked if I could use the 10% coupon.
He said this was already a discount and cannot be combined with the 10%.

I have attached the receipt for reference/price-match purposes!

I know ATT had these for $399, but this is the best price at the current moment for me! The phones ranged from being 1 week old to 1 month old!
These come with the original box, brand new charger, ear pods, and cable unlike the ATT deal!

Hope somebody is able to score it at the same price!

I don't think you followed what I said....open box price is $594.99.
They had a special promotion for another $100 off! With 10% coupon, the price becomes $534+tax!

Unlock is less than $2 on ebay, I have bought many so far and it has worked everytime!
I bought it from a seller named nyf14, and no I'm not trying to promote anybody here...just a suggestion!

I guess it's just $2, but I would think that a phone bought off contract should be officially unlocked on principle.
