The Source must be confused with their Bell Palm Pre deals

Bell is selling the Palm Pre for a low no-contract price of $149.95. A good deal for a decent CDMA smartphone. However, over at their retail outlet The Source they are having some whacked out “specials”. Not to be a downer or the Grinch this holiday season but don’t fall for them.

They are selling a “refurbished” Palm Pre for $149.00 and it only gives you a warranty of 30 days. You’re better off getting it brand new. Then there is their Boxing Day sale that offers a brand new Pre for $0.00 on a 3-year or $299.95 no-contract… as a bonus The Source will throw in a $75 gift card. All this just doesn’t make sense. There are better deals out there to be had…

Update: it seems that The Source is having a better Boxing Day sale that’s in their flyer – which the pricing is incorrect – the real price is the same at $149.00 no-contract. In addition, according to the internal doc we received it shows The Source boxing day promo is a $50 accessory credit on a 2 year contract, and a $100 accessory credit on a 3 year.
