Amazon Offering $100 Gift Card with Purchase of Hotspot-Enabled Smartphone

By  |  9 Comments

Amazon is currently offering a limited time promotion on smartphones that have mobile hotspot support for both new customers and those that wish to upgrade. If you buy one of Amazon’s mobile hotspot ready smartphones, a list that includes the Motorola Droid RAZR which just came out today and the Motorola Droid Bionic, the retailer will give you a $100 gift card.

The only draw back is that the hotspot feature must be activated at the time of the purchase in order to take advantage of the deal. Luckily, mobile hotspot support is worth getting, especially if you have a 4G LTE device and you often find yourself trying to do work on-the-go.

Those that don’t need a smartphone and wish to buy a mobile hotspot device can also take advantage of the deal only Amazon will only dish out a $50 gift card instead of a $100 one.

Amazon Deal

The offer lasts through December 31st and is definitely something to look at if you’re in need of a new phone and are thinking about getting a Kindle Fire.

You can find out all of the rest of the details if you head here.

      I spoke to a rep yesterday at amazon wireless and she told me that I should keep it activated until I receive my gift card.  I think they are advertising that as up to 60 days.  Someone else might want to make a call 1-877-429-8502 (amazon wireless) and see if they get the same reply.

        I called tonight – twice.  During both calls I was told I had to add the hotspot feature during my initial purchase. The first rep said that I had to have the hotspot feature on my account during the initial phone activation but that I could cancel it at anytime after that.  The second rep said that I could cancel it at any time but *suggested* that I keep it on my account until I receive the gift card just to make sure I would qualify for it.

    If you sign up for a family plan with more than 1 phone, can you get the $100 gift card for each line that you activate mobile hotspot??

      I was hoping the same thing.  I called tonight and found out that you can’t.  They are limiting it to 1 per customer/account.
