I love to see deals before launch and this one might make the decision to get the new Evo, just a little easier. If you are coming from an og Evo on Sprint, you can combine this new deal with their ongoing trade-in program and get an additional $50 gift card until June 2nd. So if you currently have the og Evo, you'll likely want to hop on this deal before June 2nd so you can get up to $100 in Best Buy gift cards.
