Sprint launches BOGO offer on LG Optimus G, Amazon selling it for $50

LG Optimus G Topples Apple's IPhone 5

Everybody would like own a high end smartphone, but the issue with these phones is that they don’t come cheap, but then if you wait until the product isn’t as hot as it was days after the launch, you will most probably find some offers running on them. LG Optimus G is a pretty good phone and yes, we do have offers on it. Since the Valentine’s day is nearing, almost all the carriers are running the buy one get one offer, and Sprint is in the game too. Sprint has been running the buy one get one free offer on LG’s Optimus G smartphone. The price is $200 for two devices, and you will have to sign two year contracts for each device. If you don’t mind signing a new long term agreement for each line of service and can get a friend who happens to want to buy the same phone, then this is a very good deal.

The buy one get one free offer is attractive and basically you’re paying $100 per device, but there are times when you won’t be able to find a friend who happens to want to buy the exact same phone, and in that case you can always find alternative deals online. It turns out that you can get yourself a Sprint LG Optimus G for just $50 along with a 2 year contract, and the best part is that you don’t have to find a friend in order to avail this price either. The deal is coming from Amazon Wireless and contract extensions through the online retailer are priced slightly higher at $100.

If Sprint provides great service in your area and you are willing to switch, then this deal is the best you can get online at this point in time on this particular device. Below is the spec comparison of Samsung Galaxy S3 and LG Optimus G:
