Nokia Monster Purity Headset Promotion

Nokia giving away free Purity Headset to new Lumia owners (Updated)

If you've purchased a new Nokia Windows Phone over the past few days, you can cash in on a free set of Nokia Monster Purity headsets (the in-ear models). Just head over to NokiaHolidayHeadset.com and fill in the blanks, print off the completed form, include a copy of the original sales receipt and UPC/barcode from your box and send it all into Nokia.

Now for the fine print.

Qualifying Windows Phones include the Lumia 920 and 820 from AT&T, the Lumia 810 from T-Mobile and the Lumia 822 from Verizon. Purchases must have been made between November 20, 2012 and December 31, 2012 and at a participating retail store in the U.S. and District of Columbia. Your redemption form and proof of purchase postmarked by January 16, 2012 and received by Nokia's Promotional Center by January 31, 2012. The $90 headset offer is limited to one per device/person/household. Headset should be shipped out within 4-6 weeks after the redemption material is received and approved.

Update - We have a statement from Nokia on the confusion over the promotion, which should explain the limitations:

"We are very pleased by the positive response to our Lumia range in the US. And I agree, there are some great holiday deals to be had. However, this particular promotion is an exclusive offer available only through our 8 pop-up stores in the US. We apologize for the confusion."

Doug Dawson
VP, Media Relations, Nokia

Thanks, Jeff, for the tip!

What about if I ordered my Lumia 920 from at&t online?

larspassic says:

It says you can use a copy of your receipt. You should be able to print off an email receipt.

baileystein says:

According to the official rules, online orders do not qualify.

Kormiko says:

So... I bought mine online yesterday (Nov 23rd) because I wanted the Cyan color and now I can't receive these?
 
Sounds fair.  :(

dtiapril says:

Don't understand the problem? It says orders between 20 Nov and 31 Dec...

Well damn! No love for the launch day buyers?? Smfh!

cdbstl76 says:

Yeah, we paid more AND get less... That doesn't seem right ...

Reflexx says:

You didn't get a wireless charger?

Still waiting for it att had reorder it for some reason.

Dusteater says:

I bought it lauch day for full retail. Don't get wireless charger or headphones. Super lame.

mmali386 says:

I bought one on launch for full retail and got a free charger and barely got the cyan one on the 20th from the Microsoft Store so I'm eligible. Surprisingly I'm actually thankful now for att cancelling my order five times for the cyan.

Kormiko says:

I thought Cyan was only available online...  uf...  now, I'm just sitting here waiting for a shipping date.

Well, I'm getting a $100 gift card and apparently no sales tax, so I won't complain too much about not getting headphones.  I probably won't get the charger though either since that's apparently AT&T stores only.  I thought the 920 was originally gonna cost $150-$200... so I'm fine.

mmali386 says:

The Microsoft store has all the colors available just call ahead to make sure they have some in stock. The black one I got on launch day was for my dad so I don't think the no headphones worries him too much. Only buying from att are eligible from the free charger. I'm not sure why people are pissed off at Nokia this offer was specifically targeted as a holiday promotion for any US Lumia. Imagine the people getting a 920 for 49 bucks plus a free charger and also a pair of these. Nokia's going for the jugular here. I wish the cyan headphones were available instead of the pink though.

Dramer77 says:

i posted on nokia's FB wall about buying for full price and not getting the chargin pad,,, they are sending me one directly for free
 

hopmedic says:

I posted on Nokia's wall about no free charger when everyone else is getting one, and they told me they have no control over Verizon promotions. How's that for playing it even?

hopmedic says:

No. Verizon isn't giving those away..

pookiewood says:

I bought mine from the MS store because i wanted Cyan on Nov 13th.  They didn't offer the Wireless charger.

Yup! Someone who buys now will get a free charging plate and headphones!

oniororo says:

I'm going to apply the for the damn thing! Will see what they do.

erasure25 says:

Same here. I'm just going to apply...

BK-one says:

I applied anyways even though I got my 920 on release day. Worst case is I wasted papers,envelope and a stamp. Best case, I get headphones in the mail around mid January..

VagrantWade says:

This your first holiday sale?

aubreyq says:

Buying on launch day ain't worth it for pretty much everything.

Bacchus1976 says:

This is pissing me off. I bought my 920 off contract, full price through a MS store on the first day. I'm not eligible for any of these discounts, free charger or free headphones. Why in the hell are the early adopters being excluded from these things? Especially the ones buying stright from Microsoft!

Residing says:

Are you serious? You paid for the phone and you got exactly what you paid for, and the glee of being able to use it and show it off before many people had the opportunity to obtain one.

A very generous gift from Nokia, certainly not owed to anyone.

dainla says:

He didn't say anything about being "owed." 
He was abitrarily excuded from a free offer.
It's bad business.

Residing says:

My point- Nokia doesn't to offer this to anyone, at any point in time. A phone was purchased, and that's what people paid for.

Anyone who purchases this device after the offer period should'nt complain either.

eshy says:

That's the choice you made, to buy a device off contract. The wireless charger deal was only for those getting the phone on contract so it doesn't matter where you bought it.

Reflexx says:

I wonder if a "purchase" qualifies as after November 20th if the phone was ordered before that, but not received and charged until after that date.

baileystein says:

I called and left a message. Will let you know what I hear.

Z10YkakPES says:

It is bs I had mine on Nov 9 and I can't get it? So much for early adoption

Kormiko says:

Yeah... and there are now Xbox 360s with bigger hard drives and free games too, but not when I first bought it. They should give me those things for free.  ;) Bah!

Don't be daft. There's a difference between getting an xbox  and a new offer coming out 5 years later and getting a lumia and 10 days later they're offering $90 earbuds for free. This man/woman, like me, has his reasons to be mad. I am not going to act like I am owed this thing, though.

dainla says:

I'm going to put that in my terrible analogy pile.

man1up says:

Jeez, just ordered Monster isport couple days ago... Sigh.

equilias says:

Hopefully my Lumia 920 will arrive by that time....

Reflexx says:

Does this REPLACE the free charger offer"

5tephen says:

And early adopters get nothing again. Yay.

chrgeorgeson says:

Yup you got nothing... but a phone and a free wireless charger......nothing else though.... oh and the lates WP OS.... but nothing else besides a phone a free charger and the latest OS.... NADDA!

5tephen says:

Ah but I bought my phone off contract and ATT refused to give me the wireless charger claiming that it is for upgrades and activations only. So I got a phone, nothing else.

Sinabu says:

I upgraded and I didn't get the wireless charger either. AT&T's website sucks for upgrading and I had to do it with a supervisor over the phone and they said they couldn't do it. It was online only.

5tephen says:

It's funny cause when I called in trying to get the charger, I was told that the charger was an in store only deal and that was the only way I could get it. And of course in store they said it was upgrade or activation only.

The complaint is clearly that people are getting the phone for $50 with the free $50 charger and free $90 earphones, while those who got it early paid $100 and are getting a free $50 charger. Granted, many of us here used the Black Friday sale to get refunded the $50 difference on the phone, but it is still an annoyance to willingly be an early adopter (not that I'm complaining about that; love my phone), and we sort of get punished for it.
 
No, I'm not saying I DESERVE more free stuff, just that it's kind of a bad PR move to say that the most loyal of your customers get left out of the offer..

Lnin0 says:

Try buying it from Verizon where you pay $100 for a lower end model (822) and get no head phones and no wireless charging. In fact, Verizon sells the charging back for the 822 separately so the cost to go cordless is $90. So please...if I have to hear how 'bad' you have it from another AT&T owner :(

wpguy says:

+1 Tmo here. But at least I can get an 810. Poor Sprint customers get absolutely no love at all.

Huh, a Verizon rep told me I don't need a special back for wireless charging, even when I asked directly. I didn't see the back on their website. This would be about par for the course at Verizon. Of course I didn't order the charger anyway, as I want to buy as little stuff from them as possible. But otherwise, service-wise, I am stuck with them. The 822 has much better reception than the Trophy though.

tissotti says:

That's pathetic. Most of us are paying 699 euros for the phone, just that, the phone.
 
While you guys are getting wireless charger and some even free 100 euros headphones on top of that.... and STILL complain. C'mon. 

Reflexx says:

Sadly, that's what our culture is like now.

5tephen says:

Well I can complain when guess what? I got just the phone.

Don't Complain. Take your business elsewhere. You know. One of those plethora of other handsets. Yeah, the ones that don't give you jack else other than the handset itself? Stick it to the man!

dalydose says:

I've always found at least a low end headset with every phone until I went Lumia.

So you would feel better if you got a cheapie pair of earbuds? They already dropped the price of the phone to record lows. ANy other WP8 device is going to cost you $150+ in the states right now. Not sure if they come bundled with a cheap pair of buds, but as I said, take your business to them. Seriously. If they sell better, at higher prices, because they package in crappy earbuds, Nokia will learn not to drop their prices and just do what all the other companies do.
 
At the end of the day, people always want more...

dalydose says:

Yes I would. I would LOVE to even have a pair of cheapies.  I used the heck out of my Samsung cheapies.

tissotti says:

I got the phone. Exactly what was prmised to me when i paid 699 euros for it.
You don't see me complaining as i got what was promised. 

5tephen says:

Well I was told I was getting a wireless charger. Do I have one? No. Is there one ordered for me? No, because ATT says you only get one if you buy on contract.

Residing says:

Yet you still purchased the phone! And you're complaining? If getting the charger was that important, then you shouldn't have purchased the device.

Nobody, as far as I am aware, said the off contract Lumia's on AT&T were receiving wireless chargers. Where did you read that?

5tephen says:

Nobody said they weren't until after I purchased the phone. In the press release regarding the 920 it states that the free wireless charger offer is available upon purchase. Not a single att rep could find anything stating that it was with upgrade or new activation only, but still refused to provide me with the free charger I feel I rightly am owed because of the promotion.

Rishicash says:

That's because you're not American :)

jtes8 says:

I'm sending one in anyway even though i got mine the second day. Hopefully they send me a pair. ::fingers crossed::

theBrknSystm says:

I still haven't received my charge plate from att. Grrr.

slimz0r says:

Still waiting on mine also.. Its been weeks..

I haven't gotten mine either. I got my 920 a week ago

zishbu says:

Same here, no ship date yet, had my phone almost a week

Etyrnus says:

I'm ok with getting the wireless charger. Those style headphones don't always stay in my ears. And I have a set of beats solo HD anyway.

jtes8 says:

The purchase dates for the submission form actually says between November 16 and December 30

riffraffy says:

This is what I read:
"THE OFFER PERIOD: The Offer is available for devices purchased between November 20, 2012, and December 31, 2012 (the “Offer Period”)."
http://www.nokiaholidayheadset.com/static//Nokia_Holiday_Headset_Rules.pdf

dalydose says:

That's true @Riffany, but the form says November 16, not November 20. I'm sure it's a typo and I expect that it will be updated before long.

mud314 says:

Cannnot submit anything. I keep trying and nothing happens. It just refreshes to the same page, no errors provided or anything. 
 
I do think it is lame that the early adopters are not getting anything. I purchased mine on 11/19 and to think I cannot get it for a day, it's also absurd. 

5tephen says:

The web site actually says if purchased on 16 November, not 20 November.

Got my 920 on Day 1 off contract. No love for me. Maybe I should send an email to Stephen Elop...

jtes8 says:

All of the early adopters should do the same!

spampy2 says:

Return and repurchase so your date is in the window to get the headset, Att has done this for me in the past but you have to go to the store

Residing says:

It would be better id Nokia hadn't offered the headsets at all. So many whiners! Maybe Nokia will learn not to give away free items since they aren't obligated to do so...just make everyone pay for accessories like other companies.

You paid for one of the most innovative phones on the market and that's what you got. Not sure why that is no longer enough anymore.

hd7b4radar says:

I agree. I got my 8x on mobile for 240 on contract and I didn't get anything for free. Att is selling the Lumia for 100 and people still complain. I don't get why people feel so entitled. Even if u didn't get a wirless charger or headphones u got an awesome phone for a great price. And to the people who bought the phone cash why would u expect anything. The whole reason for the free extras is cuz they would have locked u in for 2 years if u signed a contract.

I did bought my phone on the 10th almost $150 with the charger included, I will write Nokia and make sure that I receive the damn headset especially when I had to pay a Sprint ETF...

Cellus13 says:

Wow... Between Nov 20? Whatever.

larspassic says:

The site says November 16 and the terms say November 20. I am tweeting @NokiaCareUS on twitter to see what they say. Also asking about early adopters :(

dalydose says:

I'm printing the form NOW.  Once they get wind of the error, they'll probably fix the form to say the 20th, but hopefully honor the forms printed with the 16th (my purchase date).  This is almost worth returning and rebuying, even with the restocking fee.  Hmmm....

Reflexx says:

How long must any offer include early adopters? What is a fair expectation? Early adopters do so knowing what the terms were at the time of purchase.

With that said, many "early adopters" didn't actually get a phone in hand until much later. Some still don't have their phones.

Long Syntax says:

I understand your point, but it puts a barrier up for buyers who consider purchasing early. If potential early buyers think there's a better deal on the short term horizon, it may make them wait.

But I agree, there is a reasonable cut off date. I'm just not sure that 2 weeks meets such a reasonable cut off date.

You are right. Bust early adopters are the ones that are going to hype the phone. They are doing a lot of the marketing for you. Do I feel like early adopters (on this forum) are being babies right now? You bet! But that doesn't matter. Marketing is marketing, and if people start telling others to wait a few weeks because Nokia will start throwing in freebies, that's bad business.

Reflexx says:

Offer is not combinable with other promotions. So if you got a free charge plate, you already got your freebie.

dalydose says:

Interesting on a couple of accounts:
1. Most people still don't have their charge plates, so I wonder what cancelling that order would do.  A $49 plate vs. a $99 set of headphones isn't a tough decision for me.
2. The way that AT&T rings their purchases is that on ONE receipt, they sold me the phone and gave a generic $50 credit.  In a separate transaction, they "sold" and charged me $50 for the plate.  The receipt that Nokia is asking for shows only the purchase of a phone. 
Regardless, I'll roll the dice and bet an envelope and stamp and see what the outcome is.  I'll expect nothing and will be ecstatic if I get a surprise around Christmas/New Years.
 

Al Le says:

These earbuds are $99?!?!

Kormiko says:

Monster is like Apple... they like to overcharge for things.

zishbu says:

I just wish they included a headset with the phone, every BB and iPhone I purchased in the past for myself and a business account had them in box. I'm using old BB headphones from a BB curve from 09'. Used them with my l900 and now with my l920

dalydose says:

I was shocked that not even a cheapie headset wasn't in the box.  My old Samsung ones have finally petered out.  I use my headset a lot.  I use them in the car for handsfree chatting and I do a lot of my errands on foot in my neighborhood.  I still need to buy some cheapies in the short term, but I'll keep my fingers crossed for an upgrade. :)

Tomasz S. says:

What? AT&T doesn't include headphoes in their uglyass Lumia packaging? Lulz.
Thank the gods in Europe we can buy original Nokia phones, which all come with headphones. And amazingly, the 820 comes with a pair of nice WH-208 in color matching the phone instead of the cheapest ones.

 

zishbu says:

Agree the ATT packaging was lame, yet its ok BC the phone is amazing, seriously. v3 of Lumia 9 series should include a headset, even if its cheap. I use them all the time.

Higgs Boson says:

How do you believe the universe owes you something that 5 minutes ago you didn't even know existed?! - Louie C.K. Lol...

tissotti says:

Lol, spot on.

Higgs Boson says:

I'm an early adopter. Windows CE on my HP pocket PC FTW!

bono5112 says:

Soooo F the people who went and bought one the first day. That's loyalty

Etyrnus says:

Or more like trying to entice more holiday purchases. Didn't really matter to me, I have to phone I want, plus the only times I use headphones are at work (I can use my beats) or on my motorcycle, which it doesn't look like those would fit under my helmet.

SmoothDog says:

You've gotten the pleasure of having a sweet phone. Is Nokia suppose to not try any marketing strategies? B happy with what you got and quit whining.

Kormiko says:

At least you got your phone... I'm out of my contract and waiting for a ship date for the phone I ordered... which may or may not be emailed to me next week.

I got my phone on the 19th, but figured I would fill out the form anyway. I figured, worst case, it will use up a bit of my time and that's it. The form actually prints out as receipts dated November 16 through December 30, so something to keep in mind. I won't feel too let down if I don't get it though. I already got the phone deeply discounted (free + $25 credit) at the MS store plus a wireless charger and wireless dock stand. Needless to say I don't "deserve" more free stuff, but I will still take what I can get. ;)

Rhoyz says:

T-mobile doesn't even offer free wireless charger.

kebnt says:

The MS store gave you a wireless charger and a wireless dock stand?  How'd you swing that?  The one near me wouldn't give me squat and I bought it off contract.

Rhoyz says:

I bought it directly from T-mobile. No freebies.

kebnt says:

Hm sorry, I hit the reply to lordofthereef's post but it ended up replying to yours, sorry for the confusion

MoogDiesel says:

Definitely bummed out on this one. Bought a 822 on the 16th!! :( 

LaNiQuE says:

Wow they finally give us free earphones and I can't even get any happy they doing things like this for us so hopefully when I get my upgrade I will get some earphones

tyrok says:

So I buy the online exclusive Grey 822 on day one and not only do they not make the wireless charging back plate in grey but I can't get the free headphones because I bought it online and too early?

DaSchnee says:

Paid 599€ for the 920 -> phone only
americans pay 50$ -> get free wireless charger and Monster headphones as an extra (Ok, your contracts are really expensive but that has nothing to do with Nokia)
I guess they really want to piss off us europeans
 
Everybody or nobody thats how it should be

z33dev33l says:

You also don't get a carrier locked device most of the time...

pulkit10 says:

While I don't exactly know the situation in Europe, I think it is fair to say that Americans and up paying more for the device over a period of two years so it is fair that they pay only $50.
Also, I'm in Canada and we didn't get any of these free goodies either so screw the complainers. Also, the U.K. got their free wireless chargers too.

S_C_B says:

I bought my 920 on the 17th. Gimme my free stuff.

simpkijd says:

Once agian, I feel slighted.  Paid full price for the phone at the MS store on Launch day....  No free charger for me...  No freeearbuds for me...

schlubadub says:

I'm confused... Don't all phones come bundled with headphones by default? I've never had one that didn't have headphones, usb & wall-plug included

Mike Hollis says:

My Lumia 810 and my wife's HTC 8X didn't come with headphones, just the wall charger.

schlubadub says:

I take it you're in the US?

dalsmavsfan says:

Why November 20th when the phone was release earlier. That doesn't make sense.

S_C_B says:

From the website.

1.This completed submission form
2. Original or copy of sales receipt showing purchase price and store, dated between November 16, 2012, and December 30, 2012
3. Original or copy of UPC and barcode panel from the eligible Nokia Lumia device package

It's been changed to the 20th.

S_C_B says:

AH!  The T&C says 11/20, but the entry form says 11/16.  Get it together Nokia.

inteller says:

wow what an effin cluster.  I filled this out today when it said 16th...(got it on the 19th)  Now they say the 20th.....would someone with some EFFIN brains figure out how to do a promotion?

ScytheNoire says:

Nothing for Canadians. Nothing for early adopters. Thanks for nothing Nokia.

VagrantWade says:

You mean other than your freaking phone?

Ethan Jensen says:

Don't you mean thanks for an awesome phone? If you want the other things just buy it. You do work right? Do you want your employer to just take your work and not pay you? That's essentially what you're asking Nokia to do. Just be grateful.

haha tell me where I can buy this in canada ???? I think ebay is my only option (and I will have to pay a lot of custom and "our new electronic fees"). I'm really happy with my phone, but I don't understand why we have only black, 3 years, 100$. No chargers (rogers salesman don't know what i'm talking about). no free earbud ... etc. 
the charges is at 69.99 on ebay with 11.99 shipping + custom + taxe electronixc fees. more than 100$ for this thing that you have free. Some place have the big headphone ... other have 50$ gift or etc ... I want to know what rogers deal we have ???? to be the first to have the phone ? emmmmm october 30 I think just 20 we're sold. I got mine november 15 because I know the salesman and they reserved one for me.
So yes I can say thanks to give me a really nice phone to nokia ... but I can ask why they are so strict with us.

pulkit10 says:

@Jessy: this might surprise you but I got mine from Rogers and it came with a pair of Nokia headphones.

I got one too .. but it's the cheap version everyone have with a cellphone ... 

Basically, was on mobile,( suncom plan), wanted to upgrade to the 8x, was told no cause I was still on my suncom plan, and would have had to pay the full price of the 8x. Told my rep, that I was goin across (literally) the street (att) he said ok. Long story short, am now on att with a Strom trooper 920, free chargin plate, which I must say, brought my phone on the 17th, and I will be picking my plate up Monday. They told me 3-5 business days, and the 3rd is when I receive. Att has not made me happy in the 2 weeks I've been with them! Still have my activated Hd7 on T-Mobile. Great phone, underrated, but awesome. I want those ear buds. I will get them! FOR FREE!

tehkei says:

meh not really angry, I got my phone 2nd day of release, my charging pad is being shipped and I got credited 50 dollars for the black friday sale. So I got a 150 dollar value for 50 dollars. I think thats a deal even if I didn't get those headphones.

mase123987 says:

Talking to Nokia on their chat and they are saying it is being ran by the carriers and they can't help with it...

mase123987 says:

Does this sound right Daniel?

VagrantWade says:

Of course the carriers are paying for it. Nokia isn't just going to lose money. Who do you think paid for the chargers.

dalydose says:

Well, sounds like Nokia is paying for it since it only applies to purchases made at their pop up stores.

stevethenerd says:

:( us customers only

ColeHarris says:

Are these any good? I'd assume so for $100 but I've seen worse for more so... 

Kenjoe says:

Ohhh nice nice...I got my Nokia 920 yesterday $49.99 black friday sale, free wireless charger and im about to get free Purity headset hehe....i do love Nokia for this.

Nakazul says:

While to bad i cant get that in my country, om still in love with WPCentral for clearly pointing it out, thqt ITS US only. It's a small detail, but it saves me the trouble to go looking for it. So thnx and keep up the good job.

FunWithDrugs says:

Oh well, I ordered mine online and they don't have yellow, plus these are crappy little in-ear.

A lot of whining here. The comments section on this site is getting more and more like wmpoweruser. Seems like the rest of the world also has the same attitude of entitlement as the U.S. Cry babies.

irvin792 says:

US cry babies? Pretty big blanket statement. Ignorance much?

Reflexx says:

Not all US consumers are crybabies... but there are a TON of them. The entitlement mentality here nowadays is kind of creepy scary.

robstunner says:

Wait, so im a crybaby because I was excieted enough to pre-order the device on the 7th at 5am before heading into work? Meanwhile the dingbats that are just randomly walking in and getting a lumia because its cheap and takes good pics are getting free stuff and a cheap device. I think its ok to complain a little bit in this senario.

VagrantWade says:

Well the carrier's we are paying for our service are the ones paying for these free earphones. So if anyone should feel entitled, it's Verizon/AT&T customers. They missed the promotion by a couple weeks.

peterfares says:

Oh shut up. Nokia is basically just telling everyone NOT to buy their new phones on the first day because if you wait 2 weeks then you get the phone for cheaper AND get more accessories. I pre-ordered my Lumia 920 but if I am ever going to get another Nokia phone I'm probably just going to wait 2-3 weeks because I'll get a much better deal. 

You mean 2 months. Good luck finding anything but white in stock.

Gken says:

hey now, white is an awesome color!

mmartins18 says:

does anyone have a .pdf copy of this form? I cant get access to this site. 

TonyDedrick says:

Got my 820 on the 12th. I am gonna try it anyways.

VagrantWade says:

Good thing I returned my first one and replaced it on the 21st :)

Of course... I had to go and buy my phone a week before. Looks like I need to exchange my phone.

bilzkh says:

....and absolutely nothing for Canadians.

The site now says postmarked by the 8th and received by the 15th. I just order a 920 via amazon and its not estimated to get in until the 8th! Hope it gets in sooner, or a better deal comes along and I can cancel.

Mike Hollis says:

That's what I get for buying my 810 two days after T-Mobile started selling it. :/

Wow these comments are sad, unbelievable that you guys think you're entitled to a headset that's made by the same company the beats ones are that you guys love to trash to death. Grow up seriously.

Why is it that people think that consumers should accep;t everything? Yes, entitlement is a big problem nowadays, but so is a lack of consumer-brand loyalty, and that goes both ways. It's not something where I think I DESERVE earphones for free, or even that I EXPECT them. What it comes down to is customers who show Nokia and Microsoft some early loyalty with their purchases (and have been occasionally met with underwhelming battery life and software bugs) are getting less than the late-to-the-party sheep who wait to see whatever the flavor-of-the-month device is.
This isn't something where we bought our phones yelling "GIVE US EARPHONES!" This matter is that we paid more for the devices (in some cases; I actually got the Black Friday difference taken off of my phone bill) and are getting less in return. It's not entitlement.
Oh, and the complaint about what Monster makes isnt' that it's useless garbage, it's because the stuff is overpriced. Getting these for free isn't overpriced.

No I've heard that it was useless too. This is entitlement no matter how you slice it.

Paul Acevedo says:

You're a troll. Noone cares what you think.

uopjo6 says:

I can't believe you guys are complaining. Sweet deal for $99 + a free charger. Early adopters get to play with the phone earlier than others. Some get headphones, so what. 

Meanwhile around the world we're paying more than $500USD on a 2 year contract, charger not included, hasn't been stocked yet and only with Yellow White and Black at the moment.

It's racist.

5tephen says:

Everywhere else in the world gets the 920 in gray. Not everyone gets a free charger, either. If I was in the UK I could've gotten a free charger, and its not like the 920 comes with headphones to begin with anyway. So yeah

VagrantWade says:

Verizon and ATT are footing the bill for this. If you have neither carrier tough shit. That's liffe. Blame your carrier not Nokia.

dalydose says:

This is incorrect

Ethan Jensen says:

Boy do people feel entitled. I purchased my 920s early. Just got my yellow yesterday. But I got the phone! Woohoo that's what I was hoping for. The free charging plates the low price is all just incing. No reason for me to cry because I missed the date for this HOLIDAY INCENTIVE... I bought it for right then and there not for Christmas. Now where can I order the Purity Pro with NFC? I would like to get my hands on that for work. Would be awesome.

hd7b4radar says:

+1 You bought it knowing what u were getting. I think it was pretty reasonable to think att was gonna have a holiday promotion. U bought ur phone cuz u wanted it right away and didn't expect anything later.

hd7b4radar says:

My bad it was supposed to say +1 ha

dalydose says:

I bought mine the DAY my store had a red one in stock! :)

karl11 says:

I think it was easier to get the free charge pad by going into the att store. Got mine within a few days. I don't know why people are complaining about the ear buds, because they bought at launch. That's what happens when you buy at launch.

My att store had plenty of white/black 920s. I have to pay $35 restockin fee for cyan. Which I will do Monday, when I finally get my charging plate!

VagrantWade says:

Someone needs to submit these comments to http://first-world-problems.com/

I know right? This is crazy

RawrrSavior says:

Ordered mine on the 16th... :/

If I got it on the 21st, but ordered it on the 9th, do I quality?

WPenvy says:

Are you serious? After calling my ATT store for a week straight EVERY MORNING to see if they had stock, i went online yesterday and just bought one there. I wanted that in-store experience. F U ATT
 
at least i was able to haggle down via chat to get a $50 credit for black friday

VagrantWade says:

You must be confused. You still qualify if you ordered online...

kebnt says:

Where does it say that online purchases are eligible?  The General Rules section says "offer not valid on online purchases" - am I missing something?

WPenvy says:

No my friend, just going by the details in the offer. I will still try nevertheless, as my state wasn't listed in those qualifying for the Black Friday deal on the 920 but i still got it.

GENERAL RULES: Offer not valid on online purchases,

k2604 says:

I m planning to buy lumia 920 today.. but confused b/w red and yellow.... pls suggest me one..

ricardios says:

You'd be lucky to find either one. I'd go with the yellow

ricardios says:

Crap I bought mine last week.

larspassic says:

Here's an update on my conversation with Nokia Cares:
Does not apply for those who pre-ordered the Lumia 920? The dates on the site and terms are conflicting.

 

It doesn't appear preorders are eligible per the rules , we are looking into this & will get back to you.^RS

 

Dang Pham says:

Just return your phone and repurchase. Call AT&T customer service and they will waive the restocking fee for you.

roblo says:

I'm just happy I have my 920 and the charging plate, no complaints here. I'm actually using my iphone 5 headphones :)

WPenvy says:

Do the buttons work ok with WP8? I've always wondered if it would be full compatibility. Eg. double press to skip, and triple press to start over a song.

dogfish54 says:

I don't much like the earpods, I got a set with my iphone 5 too, nice bonus however.
I ordered mine on the 9th online and out of contract for $449+tax ... which is RIDICULOUSLY cheap for this phone. Also getting a free charger, making it more of an amazing deal. I still want the headphones dammit, so I'm sending in the form anyway.

angelsimaren says:

I'm still using my Zune headphones :)

I cried the day my Zune headphones died.  Best packaged headphones I have ever seen.

angelsimaren says:

I know, my first pair died, and I got the 2nd version. I checked on Amazon and they are still selling :)Unfortunately I can't get the Nokia headphones because I pre ordered on the 7th on att's online store. Are you eligible? Hope you get them!

zishbu says:

Link to set Zune headset on Amazon? If they don't up the deal to 920 orders before Nov 16th I'm going to need to sorely update my BB curve headset :)

The ZennyBoy says:

I'm trying so hard not to be selfish, lol. As long as I get my charger, I think I'll be content.

monigal2 says:

The people who don't qualify need to stop all the complaining and be happy for those who do qualify...if u bought a 920, u got a $200 phone for $99, be happy for that. And if paid off contact price that was your choice..

z33dev33l says:

$99 for a $200 phone? You do realize that the Lumia 920 is a $450 dollar phone, right?
 

This thread is the lulz. I got paid 30 dollars for the lumia. So for negative 30 dollars I got a 920, headphones, and a charging pad. Best phone pick up ever.

BasedC says:

Mayne, bought mine last friday, oh well, still happy as shit

Gken says:

wow, I'm gonna say I am pretty lucky had to return my phone and get a new one, got the black friday deal and now even though I bought the phone on the 7th I have a reciept for the new one I got on the 23rd NEW EARPHONES HERE I COME!

danbbrantley says:

I'd like to know if anyone has confirmed that one can get both the wireless charger and headphones with this deal.
I'd be ecstatic with either one (hell, I'd be happy with just the phone at its current price), but I will drive across state lines looking for a phone in-store if it means I can get both deals.

DroBoy says:

Thats pretty shitt, its only through there Pop-up store? WTF.
