HTC's 8X could be $79 through Best Buy

We like a nice bargain, especially if it means we can get some brand new technology for an agreeable price. If you're considering Windows Phone and you're living in the United States, now might be the time to perk up your ears. At present, eBay is running a deal where you can get a phone with a 20% discount.

The HTC 8X is a bargain if you don't mind signing on for a contract with voice and data; the phone itself should work out at $79.20 through the discount. Make absolutely sure you keep an eye on this because, at present, certain carriers are sold out. Presumably people got wise or there weren't many handsets going around.

If you can handle being on T-Mobile then you're still in luck. They still have some 8X devices, if you're not too fussy about the color and can take a contract for their pricing. T-Mobile's contract cancellation seems pretty reasonable, too, at $200 compared to the $350 on the Verizon Wireless model.

We've seen worse offers than a brand new handset like the 8X for that kind of money. "A good phone for bad money", if there ever was one.

What a ridiculous headline. Stating that it's $79 without mentioning the price or length of the contract is incredibly misleading, even for Neowin.

A more appropriate headline would have been "20% handset discount on HTC 8X with contract".

In today's age, it doesn't take more than a little common sense and knowing, to know that is exactly what they mean... To think otherwise would be a fault on your part.

And I suppose finding a razorblade in your Big Mac is also your fault for not checking what you're eating? Good grief, people do post a lot of nonsense around here.

I attempted to buy the t mobile 8x but it was still $99 in my cart. Is there a promo code to enter?

ok I eventually found the ebay ad. promo code is EB20PCT. I added an AT&T phone to my cart and the promo code worked, but with the T-Mobile 8X I got a message saying the phone did not qualify for the discount.
