thers a code to bump this down to 75.

That's a savings of about 320 after taxes over a period of two years...

Considering the value plan for a line is 69.99 for two years versus 79.99 with this deal you would actually be saving 80 bucks in a two year period.

If your on a family plan or something I guess you would be right.
The savings difference depends on the plan. A lot of people like to go for the $30 a month TMo plan (100 mins, 5gb data). Buying off-contract plus $30 a month is MUCH cheaper than this deal, although the $30 plan is obviously designed more for people into data than minutes. If you need the minutes, and don't mind a contract, this is not a bad deal.

Here's a curious number...I clicked the option for "Phone only - no contract changes" and the quoted price is $549!!! That's a hefty surcharge for a phone you can buy for $299 from Google or anyone else. It does have free shipping. :-)
