I don’t think R.W does any sort of price matching or credit…especially after the fact. It may have just been a promotional sale as retailers tend to do.
One always should shop around and do their own research before buying a supported phones.
The advantage of buying a device from R.W is that it comes with the SIM and is guaranteed to work well with the service. Where as, there is a higher risk of buying an incompatible model from 3rd party as some devices requires certain exact model and build numbers to be compatible.
There are already a few threads discussing prices of some phones.
This is a community forum board.
I am a customer just like you.
This post by a R.W Ambassador is a response to another persons comment on the price for this phone.
