Bell chops $10 off plans for Palm Pre

Belll Canadian brothers and sisters, now is your chance for real savings. As reported by MobileSyrup, if you’re willing to sign on the dotted line for three years, not only will Bell give you a Palm Pre for free, they’ll also chop $10 off per month for the entire term of your contract. Total savings: $360. It’s not uncommon to see a carrier cut the initial purchase price for a phone (they make the majority of their money off the service plan), but seeing any carrier cut the monthly service charge for just one phone’s promotion is a surprising maneuver. Our guess: Bell is (still) having trouble selling the Pre, or is clearing inventory for something new. Or both.

The $10 off every month promotion is good until the end of March (discounts continue for the life of the contract, you just have to sign up by the end of the month) and on any of Bell’s Smartphone Combo plans, ranging from $50 a month to $100 a month. All Smartphone Combo plans come with 3 GB of data service and free tethering.
