Microsoft is offering lucrative discounts on the Lumia 640 in the US. The phone is sold at $29.99 at Walmart and Best Buy and is available on AT&T’s GoPhone pre-paid offering.
The Redmond-based company recently launched the metal-clad Lumia 650 and in an attempt to push sales of its Lumia versions, the Lumia 640 is now offered at a discounted price. The original price of the device is $59.99, but consumers can now save $30 after the discount. Phone Arena states that the price cut is almost 50% offered by the retailers. It should be noted that the Lumia 640 will soon be updated to the Windows 10 Mobile OS.
