This week, Radioshack got Virgin Mobile LG Optimus Elite Smartphone [radioshack.com] on sale for $49 (regular price $99). No contract is required!
Use the $10 off $20 coupon from here or print it straight from Radioshack Facebook [facebook.com] to bring the price down to $39.

This might not be the most powerful Android device out there (duh!), but for only $39, it's still a great entry-level and/or backup smartphone. It runs on Android 2.3.7, has a 3.5-inch HVGA touchscreen, 800MHz processor (actually runs at 1024MHz according to independent CPU tests), Wi-Fi and microSD capability, 5MP autofocus rear-facing camera and camcorder with flash.

Rep / thumb / share!

Yes. No need to activate it.
I just got shot down at the store because they said I needed to activate to get the $50 discount. They said they had to enter a Virgin phone number on the computer for the price to go down.

Anyone knows a way around this?

I did, and the manager said that maybe I could buy it on the website without activating, but at the store without activation the price was $99.

Here is their pricematch policy.

RadioShack Price Match Policy
If you find a lower advertised price on RadioShack.com than the price on the identical product offered for sale in our RadioShack® stores, tell us and our store associates will match the lower price. "Identical" means the same brand, model number, size, quantity, color, applicable air time or service terms, etc.
This Price Match Policy does not apply to pricing errors or to special offers such as:

Offers that are "Web only" or "Online only" or any mail-in offers
Offers that include financing, bundling, or free products
Buy one, get one free with no actual price given
Percentage-off prices (for example: "All batteries, 40% off")
Products that are limited-quantity, out of stock, close outs, open-box, clearance, outlet center, refurbished or used items
This Price Match Policy shall not be in effect beginning Thanksgiving day through the Monday following Thanksgiving.
Our stores reserve the right to verify the price on RadioShack.com prior to matching the price.
RadioShack stores located in Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands and Hawaii are excluded from this policy.

Virgin Mobile does not have 2-year plans. So I don't even no what they mean by activation.

I just had the same interaction at RadioShack, but after talking to the manager she made a call and had someone on the other end of the phone lower the price to $49 remotely. Apparently the discount not showing is something they know about higher up.

Went to Radio Shack to pick this up.. but it rung up at original price of $99.99.. the person talked to the manager and said their computer system is still updating and won't reflect the instant savings. He told me the only thing I can do is to come back tomorrow.. what the heck man....

Thanks chipper7417. I ended up buying it online with free shop runner shipping. But no $10 coupon. I'll call them tomorrow and see if they can credit me the $10.
