MetroPCS begins selling Lumia 640 for $39 after instant and mail-in rebates

Last week, we reported that the no-contract carrier MetroPCS would begin selling the Lumia 640 on June 22. That day has arrived and, as promised, the Windows Phone device from Microsoft is now available from MetroPCS.

Normally, the price of the smartphone would be $129, but Metro PC has knocked down the price to $69 via an instant rebate. Customers can also sign-up to get an additional $30 back in a mail-in rebate, which effectively cuts the cost of the smartphone down to just $39.

Just a reminder: Here are the main hardware specs for the Lumia 640:

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, 1.2 GHz quad-core processor
  • 5-inch HD (1280x720) IPS LCD, 294 PPI, Glance screen, Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Sunlight readability enhancements
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8 GB internal mass memory + up to 128 GB Micro SD & 30GB free OneDrive cloud storage
  • Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2

The Lumia 640 went on sale last week via T-Mobile, but for its full retail price of $129.84 without a contract.
