Best Buy dropping prices for Lumia 435 and Lumia 640 days before Christmas

For the last minute holiday shopper, Best Buy is joining in on the discount party for the Lumia 435 and Lumia 640. Back during Black Friday here in the US the Lumia 640 prices got as low as $40.00 at the Microsoft Store, and it appears that Best Buy is set to meet similar prices as the Christmas shopping window continues to close, thanks to a Neowin siting.
For fans of smaller handsets, Best Buy is offering the Lumia 435 unlocked but T-Mobile compatible for $29.99. The new holiday inspired discount for the Lumia 435 is down from its original selling price of $49.99 at Best Buy or $70 from the Microsoft Store. The listing for the phone includes:


SKU: 7484013

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 1.2GHz processor
  • Windows Phone 8.1 operating system
  • 4G speed
  • Wi-Fi
  • 4″ LCD transmissive touch screen
  • Bluetooth interface

Best Buy is now offering the Lumia 640 at a great deal for $49.99 (US), down from its average selling price of $59.99. The particular offer is for a no-contract device that is compatible with AT&T. The Lumia 640 offers a slightly more robust experience with a beefier processor, more screen real estate and a bump in memory. Best Buy list the 640 on their site as:

Model: NOKIA LUMIA 640 -Black

SKU: 9231014

  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz processor
  • Windows Phone 8.1 operating system
  • 4G LTE speed
  • Wi-Fi
  • 5″ LCD touch screen
  • Bluetooth

At this price, Best Buy is making an excellent case for using the Lumia as a useful stocking stuffer. With the Lumia 640 being upgraded to Windows 10 sometime next year and offering room for expandable storage up to 128GB, the phone becomes the gift that keeps on giving for some.
