You may or may not know that if you buy a Nokia Lumia 928 from Verizon, you qualify for a $25 Windows Phone Store credit. That’s a big chunk of money actually for picking up some $0.99 apps and even a few EA games.

The question you may have is how do you get it?

As it turns out, Verizon, who is not shy about emailing or calling you, will pass along an email with the voucher link.

This morning we announced AT&T’s Black Friday deal for the Lumia 920--$50 on contract plus a free wireless charging plate (while supplies last). That’s a great deal for those looking to pick up a new phone this week but may rub some people the wrong who purchased the 920 early for $99.

Word in our forums is that if you call or chat with AT&T, they will credit your account $50—the exact difference between Friday’s price and what was initially offered a few weeks ago. In fact, reading through the forum comments it looks to be a high success rate, meaning this won’t be a “if you’re lucky” situation but should be rather painless.

Do you have Windows Phone 8 (see review)? Okay, well probably not quite yet but if you are about to get one and you have some Bing points sitting by (you know, those things you get for every time you do a search using Bing on your computer), you can use 'em for the Windows Phone Store.

Yup, Bing Rewards has two special Windows Phone 8 offers on hand--one for 170 credits ($1.25) and one for 525 credits ($5). Redeeming them will turn into credits/voucher for the Store, which you can then use to buy Windows Phone apps...

Although it’s been a slow news weekend there have been a few bits worth mentioning but not necessarily getting a full on post—mostly because they’re somewhat interesting but not necessarily important. This weekend's stories are:

  • Does Nokia have an exclusive early release for Windows Phone 8? We call shenanigans.
  • Nokia's stock - now with even more junk!
  • Nokia Music gets amped to version 3.1

Head past the break for the weekend’s collection of too small to pass but too big to print...

We've heard from a few folks that their $100 credit for their Lumia 900 has not been applied to their AT&T account and now we may have an answer. While rare, there seems to be a reason that WinSource has stumbled upon.

In essence, if you bought the phone at full price and didn't use an upgrade (or new activation) then the credit won't be applied to your account. The reason being Nokia doesn't "know" that you bought and activated the phone on your account. While odd it sort of makes sense because for all they know, you bought the phone and sold it on eBay or sent it overseas.

The problem seems to be easily resolved by simply calling AT&T and double checking. In this instance AT&T verified the phone was on the account and applied the $100 credit which was a nice gesture.

The $100 credit was offered by Nokia (via AT&T) to those who purchased their Lumia 900s before April 21st due to a connectivity issues with a small number of devices.

Anyone else having problems getting the credit applied to their account?
