Based on the email, rebates on these two devices will be available to the customers. Instead of the original price of $399 (Le Pro 3) and $249 (Le S3), customers will be able to get either of the two devices at $100 off. In addition to these two smartphones, LeEco also offered their 85-inch 4K smart TV at a discounted price of $3999. On its press conference, LeEco said that these prices would be available through the end of November as they were part of its UP2U and LeRewards programs. Instant rebates with no strings attached.
But as pointed out by AndroidPolice, it looks like there really is a catch to this promotion. After reading the brief more intently, a red flag was immediately raised upon this line:
These limited-time rebates expire as models sell out.The writer was quick to point out that LeEco never mentioned that there was a limited amount of devices eligible for the rebate. There was no mention of the issue in any of the product sessions attended by the writer after their press conference. And until now, there's still no word on how many units LeEco will be offering under the discounted prices.
Despite this, it seems like the rebate would be a great way to save $100 from purchasing either the Le S3, Le Pro 3, or even the 85-inch 4K smart TV. If you're interested in getting either of these devices, remember to pre-register on their LeMall.com website to be part of the LeRewards program before the devices go on sale at 10AM on Nov. 2nd. Although LeEco doesn't require its potential customers to register for the rewards program, it's highly encouraged since these devices may sell out quickly. After all, there's no clear information on how many units will be available.
