    We don't have any official confirmation of this, but there is a rumor floating around that on December 16th, Best Buy will drop the on-contract price of the Samsung Galaxy S III to just $49.99 for all major carriers. This is basically $150 bucks off the original subsidized price of the phone when it was released. The source of this rumor did not indicate whether it was a sale that would go beyond December 16th, so it could be a one-day only deal.

    We will keep an eye out for you guys, but if you see or hear anything post it in this thread.

    It's official news at my BBYM store, so I would say its not a rumor. Also, S3's, S3's everywhere!

    Edit: It is also a one day sale for Sunday only

    If it wasn't for the unlimited data I'd jump on it.

    Yeah, it's a shame they won't take the $150 off the retail price. I'd pick it up for $450 and keep the unlimited.

    I would love it if they would have sales on off contract phones.
