Amazon Wireless Offers Samsung Captivate For A Penny

by On August 24, 2010

About five days ago, Amazon started selling the high-end Samsung Vibrant (on T-Mobile) for only a penny with a new two year contract. Considering T-Mobile sells the Vibrant for $199, I’d consider the deal to buy the Vibrant for only a penny a pretty good one. AT&T has its own flavor of the Galaxy S smartphone in the form of the Captivate, so I’m sure AT&T users would love to see Amazon offer the same deal for the Captivate and today Amazon has answered your wish. Amazon Wireless is offering the Samsung Captivate on AT&T for only a penny ($0.01) with free two day shipping. Keep in mind this deal only applies to customers who are signing up for a new two year contract or renewing a current one. Perhaps Amazon will even offer the Epic 4G for a penny when it launches, but I wouldn’t count on it. Either way, this is just another example of why you should purchase cell phones from third party retailers instead of directly from the carrier.
