Is it the same in-store?

EDIT: Based on the "sticker" on the image in the monthly customers section which is not on the pre-paid image I'd say it's a sale to draw people into monthly plans.

Could it be that because postpaid turnover is lower than prepaid, postpaid clients are provided a better incentive on pricing?

Chad... The prepaid Lumia 520 is $118 at WalMart, while it's $150 on postpaid.... :P

I'd say it's an incentive to get people to sign up for postpaid, since the average return per customer is higher.

Lol I don't understand it either... it's the same at the Koodo shops but at Futureshop they have it for $150 'no-term', weird!
