Best Buy offering black Lumia 822 in-store for $50

Best Buy is offering the Verizon Lumia 822 (a version of the Lumia 820) to new customers at just $49.99 when taken out with a 2 year plan. The price undercuts Verizon's own pricing at $150 with a $50 MIR (mail-in rebate). The retailer currently has the same handset priced at $99 online, but in-store (as can be seen above) the Windows Phone can be picked up for $50 off.

Should you visit the Best Buy website, both Lumia 822 Windows Phones (in black and white) are listed with the former variant only available in-store and the latter 'coming soon'. While everyone is attempting to fight over what stock is left at retailers, our reader informed us that this particular Best Buy store was also running low on available units.

Thanks, Eric, for the tip and photo!
