jakenz: 2D Wellington - just bought an S3 there at their unadvertised in-store promo phone-only price (just today they tell me) of $950. White only of course, not my first preference, but what the heck! 5 or so left in stock


Did my brief shop around for the day. Went in to 2degrees to see if they had any in store deals in Dunedin like jakenz mentioned but no luck. Did get to see the phone though, I don't know why so many people are complaining it is ugly, looks pretty sexy to me. Will take a bit of getting used to the size but that would be the same with any phone since my current one is an old cdma flip style.
Will probably end up buying from DSE (they got the grand total of 2 in store today lol so already gone). But the guy I talked to said as far as he knew the $949 was permanent pricing and I could also sign up and get pay monthly bonus. So plan unless something better comes up is to go back when they have more in stock or are taking orders go on the $39 plan for 12 months and hopefully get another $75 off.

Oh just saw the comment above about price matching that might be quicker. Does anyone know if 2D typically do this or will attempting this require some arguing on my part?

The Samsung Galaxy SIII is the newest Snapper Mobile handset:


Samsung Galaxy S III - the latest addition to the Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile family.


Thursday 31st May 2012
Wellington, New Zealand

New Zealand-based contactless payments and ticketing company Snapper announces today that it has extended support for Snapper Mobile to Samsung’s flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S III.
 

Pay for everyday items with your mobile.

“We are very pleased with the response to the launch of Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile in partnership with 2degrees. Customers love the convenience of being able to pay for everyday things with their mobile, and we look forward to seeing even more Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile handsets coming to market this year” says Snapper CEO Miki Szikszai.

The launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III has been eagerly anticipated: customers will get the best possible experience with this phone from 2degrees and Snapper.

Buy a Samsung Galaxy S III Touch2Pay smartphone from a 2degrees store in Wellington, download the free Snapper Mobile app from Google Play and you’ll be able to start paying for everyday items with your mobile.
 

Free weekends.

As an added bonus, customers that purchase a Touch2Pay smartphone from a Wellington 2degrees store before 31st July will also receive free weekend travel on GO Wellington and Valley Flyer bus services and 1GB of free mobile broadband zone data to use every weekend until the end of 2012.

“We are really looking forward to making Touch2Pay with Snapper Mobile available to more NFC-standards compliant smartphones as they become available,” Szikszai said.

motorwayne: Who has the best buy now price at the moment, if O wanted to get another one (not on a plan)


I have just bought mine outright for $944 from JB Hifi New Lynn, they are offering 18mths interest free as an option also

I didn't ask exactly how many they had in stock but there was definitely no shortage 

Have barely spent 5minutes playing with the phone but my S2 just feels old and obsolete by comparison

For those concerned about the white version, in real life its actually quite a classy looking device, I have large hands but i have to say it fits like a glove in one's palm, far more ergonomic design than the S2

I rang my brother to voice my distaste at having to wait until possibily the 7th june for the xt version, I paid $890 outright for it, he said 'gimme a second' and told me that he's doing a credit and only charging me $810... somewhat happier i guess but i want this phone today :(

I would be very surprised if that was actually true. Showing no stock online.

Totally agree with this!  Having them side by side now, the Galaxy S3 feels a lot lighter...yet it's not!  Really looking the white, glad I picked it over the blue now
