Wallmart local store had Sprint iphone SE
or Samsung Galaxy A71 for $100.
employee was specific on activation inside the store.
should work on Tmobile too, as activation is done using Tmobile sim.

For activation on existing line, $20 fee
or new plan needed (which he said cancel after a month)

pictures are of the phones on display for reference.

Without a SKU it is impossible to tell which phones we are looking for

Store was too busy.
waited for an hour and half, then left. that's why took photos of the ones on display they showed.

The A71 doesn't show $100. Its shows retail price of $261

iPhone is $150 after 24 months. Which isn't a deal at all.

that picture was for phone reference only, not for price as I mentioned in OP. but mostly ppl look at pictures only.

to avoid confusion I have removed those pictures of old labels.
The employee did have a separate sheet with latest price.


The Galaxy A71 and iphone SE are $100 out the door price, as the store employee put it.
not monthly contract.

also needed to pay activation fee of $20 on existing line instore,
I have a free activation online on existing line.

he was telling other customers to cancel after a month and keep the phones.

I was looking for Galaxy A51 for $75 from another slickdeal which was not in stock.
so was offered these two.

in place of $75 Samsung Galaxy A51 not in stock (from previous slickdeal) in my store.

Can I buy these outright? I'd take the Stylo 6 at $45

At this point it's either $120 or $100+cost of the new line then since it's required to get the phone.

you could but the sales person said it has to be activated in store.
their commission depends on it looks like.

so if you are upgrading, then add upgrade fee of $20
as this one was on Tmobile/sprint network.

Read your installment agreement again, all of the prices you listed here are wrong.

I just got the iPhone SE is $150 over 2 years ($6.21/mo) on installment. This is for AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint eligible upgrades as part of a long running Walmart/carrier promotion that started out at $200 over 2 years.

The Galaxy A71 5G is not worth $100, even if you are right. As the non UW version, the value is lower than usual, and plastic pieces of junk are worth nothing at trade in. Many of us already have experience with this phone from the T-Mobile/Verizon clearouts at the Samsung website.

Finally, the Sprint activation fee was $30 pre-merger, it went down to $20 post-merger, and went back up to $30 last month. If you paid $100 "out the door", you're clearly doing something wrong. The only charges due at sale are taxes on the sale price of phone and any additional downpayment you want to make. If you do not finance/installment agreement you don't get the price reduction upon upgrade.
