HTC is sweetening a variety of HTC One deals by including a $25 credit for the HTC One with any new device purchased in the U.S. between now and July 15th.
This HTC One bonus is applicable to any carrier offering the HTC One and from any retailer that sells it, including Amazon, Walmart, Radio Shack, Target and others.

This means it’s easy to combine deals to get the HTC One for less than $50 after factoring in the Google Play credit.
The HTC One Google Play credit bonus offer runs from June 14th to July 15th and must be redeemed by 11/30/2013, but no expiration date is given. Users can use the Google Play credit on music, movies and apps, which will help jump-start the switch to the HTC One.
The HTC One is $199 on contract at Sprint and AT&T, but is available for as little as $80 from Amazon on both carriers. Amazon offers the AT&T HTC One in silver and black and the Sprint HTC One in silver. T-Mobile sells the HTC One as part of the new un-carrier plans which offers the phone for $99 down and $20 monthly payments.
Radio Shack sells the HTC One for $150 on a two-year AT&T contract and includes a $50 Google Play Credit and a $10 off coupon for future purchases. This totals $85 in extras, but is only available in select stores.
In order to take advantage of this deal, users must register their phone’s serial number with HTC, confirm the email address and then claim the $25 credit offer at Google Play.
The HTC One features a 4.7-inch 1080P HD display, 4G LTE and an all metal body that offers a premium look and feel not found on every Android phone. The HTC BoomSound front facing speakers deliver better sounding audio than many smartphones. HTC includes an Ultrapixel camera and HTC Zoe, which takes 20 photos and a 3 second video with one push of the shutter, which allows users to capture and create sharable photos easily.
The Verizon HTC One is in the works, but there is no release date yet.
