Corporate stores do not have the flexibility on pricing as authorized resellers do. If a retail/corporate store sales rep discounts a phone they can be disciplined severely. Retail stores are NEVER supposed to discount phone prices without manager approval, which is rarely done. Authorized resellers give up part of their commission to be able to discount phones.
Buying from a corporate store will avoid these additional contracts that do not allow changes in the plan/features. Some resellers can penalize you if you change your device within 6 months.
If I'm annoyed and you're annoyed, does that make us a paranoid ??

It's not a matter of if you win or lose, it's how you assign the blame
