Get a free Lumia 520 when you buy an AT&T Windows Phone from Microsoft today

Do you want to get one of the cool new Nokia Lumia smartphones, such as the 6-inch 1520 or the 1020 with the 41 megapixel camera. Would you also like to get a free Nokia Lumia 520 to give to a family or friend? As part of Cyber Monday, Microsoft has a deal that will help you do both for today only.

Basically, if you order the $199 Nokia Lumia 1520 or 1020 from the Microsoft Store site, with AT&T service, or if you buy the Lumia 925 or Samsung ATIV S Neo from the same site, you will get a Lumia 520 for free.

While the phones that you have to buy are under a two year contract with AT&T, the free Lumia 520 that you will get with this offer is a no-contract device. Thus, this offer is perfect for people who really want to get a high end Lumia smartphone like the 1520 or 1020 but who might want to give the lower end 520 to a friend or family member as a gift.

Remember, this deal is just for today only on the Microsoft Store site, so you had better hustle. If you buy the Lumia 1520, you also get a free full version of "Halo Spartan Assault" to download as well as a $50 voucher code to download apps from the Windows Phone Store.

These are the sort of promotions that get marketshare numbers up. Seriously, you buy a phone you want and you get a spare to share with someone. They give it a try and they will love windows phone.

I'm not sure what MS think as deals, except the $199 Surface RT deal. Already ATT is giving 50% off for both 1020 and 1520 in their site and in other places as well. So, the price for these two devices are just $99, and ATT sells Lumia 520 for $99, Amazon for just $69. So, ideally by going for this deal with MS store, you'll loose $20.

It's a ridiculous deal to start with.

This is like those stupid infomercials that give you 45 Shamwows for the price one 1.
If I'm buying a phone for myself, I want one and one only.

Screw bonuses, right? I mean, it's not like you're going to give it away as a gift or sell it. Offering me a buy one get one free deal for the smartphone I've been saving up for? Screw it. I want one and only one. /s

I don't see the issue if the free Lumia 520 didn't raise the price of whatever phone you're buying.

Umm... you really missed the point. If I'm buying a phone for myself, I don't want 2. I'd rather have a cut in the price, which is something that Microsoft certainly could do instead of give away freebies that people don't want. And it does raise the price because the phone can be bought cheaper through a carrier.

A lower price is more attractive to the masses than useless freebies. That's a pretty simple marketing concept. All Microsoft is doing here is shoveling their excess stock at people. Might as well add a Surface RT to the bundle.

I didn't miss your point. You failed to mention your preference for a discount rather than a bonus. That would make everyone happy but Microsoft and Nokia. They'd benefit from giving you a cheap Lumia 520 because that would mean at least one more person is using a WP8 device.

Of course it benefits them, but a sale is supposed to benefit the customer. Like I said, this "free" 520 is basically an added cost since you can get the 1020 or 1520 cheaper through a carrier.

i agree. bad bad deal. the contract price was $99.
i ended up getting a blackberry. unlocked, on sale, no contracts. dead OS? yes, but better than bad marketing strategy from Nokia that forces people to seek other options.

What if I don't want the 'free' 520. How much do they go for these days? They can sell it on ebay and knock that off the $199 asking price for the Lumia 1520. Also, I don't want the $50 voucher either, they can sell that on ebay too and knock that off the price tag. I hate free stuff when it's not really free.
