If you want a Windows Phone handset, now is the perfect time to buy. The holiday shopping season is about to start and there will be plenty of discounts on handsets. To sweeten the deal, Microsoft is also offering a $25 prepaid App card for every person who buys a new Windows Phone handset. The $25 card can be used to beef up your App library or grab that expensive navigation app you always wanted to buy.
To claim your App card, you have to purchase a Windows Phone handset between November 2, 2011 and December 31, 2011. Once you buy your phone, you have until February 14, 2012 to apply for your App card. All you need to do is visit the redemption page and enter in your cell phone number and IMEI/MEID number. Microsoft will get your information and mail you off a prepaid debit card worth $25. Presumably this card can be used to buy your groceries or put gas in your car, but Microsoft recommends you put it back into the platform and use it to buy some apps or Xbox Live games.
