Hi, new user here. Please don't be hard on me. Smilie

I didn't see this posted here, so I thought I'd share. The catch is.......you have to wait 12-24 hours for an e-mail coupon.

Step 1. Check upgrade eligibility for $5 off anything (Does not have to be from Verizon or Sprint)
http://radioshackwireless.com/tem...ageid=9484

Step 2. Click "Check Eligibility" under Sprint. A new window will pop up. Enter Your Mobile Number, Billing Zip Code, and E-Mail Address. Pin is Optional.

Step 3. The same window will then check your eligibility. It will not matter if you are due or not, or if you have a different phone company.

You will get this message:

The Sprint system cannot verify your data, please re-enter to verify your eligibility, or continue shopping and we will verify eligibility after the order is submitted.

Step 4. Play the waiting game. You will get an e-mail coupon with the subject: Thank you - Redeem your $5 coupon. Click "Redeem Now."

Step 5. A coupon will show up on a new tab and you can now print and use it towards your purchase.

Rules:
*Offer valid with this coupon through 3/2/2013 at participating stores. This coupon has a unique code and is valid for one use only. Limit one coupon per person. Bose®, Apple®, and Beats by Dr. Dre® products, gift cards, airtime, services, special orders, online and phone orders excluded. May not be combined with certain other offers. No cash value. No photocopies. Void where prohibited.

Note:
- You can only order over the phone with customer care (Option 1->Option 9) or In-Store. I have confirmed with both.
- You cannot use online for some reason, despite the coupon saying "Use the code below at online checkout."
- You can order ahead of time online or over the phone, then call customer care to apply the $5 code with the stated reason "The code didn't go through online." You should get a $5 credit back on your card. YMMV.

-Use "Free Ship to Store" to offset any cost for shipping. Some products are available for Shoprunner [shoprunner.com] if you have it.

A friend just pricematched a Toshiba Canvio 1 TB External Portable Hard Drive [staples.com] at Staples to Radioshack's $79.99. He used a 15% coupon that he has with Staples and cashier deducted $5 off thanks to Radioshack's $5 off coupon promotion. About $63 not including tax ~ Not bad at all.

EDIT 1: Sales on RS items like Micro SD Cards are ending today. 2/2/13 only~

Edit 2: You can use the same phone number and different e-mail addresses for more $5 off codes. Just follow the steps as shown above.

Edit 3: been getting messages if this would work with phones despite it excluding phone orders. It worked when I purchased the Kyocera Paylo phone for $5 in-store. I would just give it a shot or call Customer Care if it doesn't work. Might be a YMMV kind of thing.

Glad to hear it's working! You can also put the same number and deliver to different e-mail addresses for more $5 off coupons. I'll update this in the wiki.

2/2/13 - Today is the last day for sale on alot of Radioshack items like the Micro SD cards.

I have 2 extra $5 off coupon codes. If anyone needs one, PM me.

edit: gone

Is this still working? The promotion page is still active, but I didn't receive a code--how long does it typically take?

Still works. It can take anywhere from 12-24 hours to receive. One person reported it took him 2 days. I'm not sure what's with the variation in the time of receiving the coupon, but keep waiting and it should come to your e-mail shortly.

Thanks! Smilie I finally got mine yesterday, so it took some time. Picked up some small gift additions for the missus for V-Day.
