Palm fans, if you're looking to buy a Pre come June 6, you should probably pick it up from Best Buy. When the Pre goes on sale across the nation next month, it will retail for $299.99 in virtually every store. Sure, they'll all come with $100 dollar mail in rebates, but who wants to deal with those? They're a hassle to send out, and it takes weeks (if not months) for your money to even show up.

Don't worry, though. In what might be the only genuine gesture of customer appreciation I've ever seen from a big box store, Best Buy has announced that they will be selling the Palm Pre for $199.99, straight up, with no rebates to worry about whatsoever.

That makes it a lot easier to plan out where to buy your Pre, which is honestly probably why Best Buy decided to do it in the first place. They'll gain a huge edge over every competing store selling the Pre, and all they have to do to make it profitable is fill out a few thousand mail in rebates per store. Sure, it'll be a pain in the butt for some unlucky Best Buy employees, but it works out great for the corporation. And for anyone buying a Pre.
