You have probably heard that before from us but we will say it again — if you shop for phones with third party retailers you are going to get a much better deal than directly from your carrier. Well, in most cases anyway. And on that note, it looks like Amazon Wireless has a pretty sweet deal on AT&T Windows 8 smartphones: the HTC 8X and Nokia Lumia 820. In short, they have the handsets available for just one penny, which is almost free.

This is a very appealing deal considering the fact that the HTC 8X at AT&T‘s store is currently offered for $99.99 and Nokia Lumia 820 for $49.99. So, the question is why buying phones from the carrier if you can get them cheaper from third party retailers?
Of course, that is one cent for phones on a two-year agreement, but those should be expected by most. The deals are eligible for new customers and existing AT&T subscribers, which comes as a nice surprise since in most cases only new customers getting the best deals.
