AFAIK, they got rid of them a while ago UNLESS you were grandfathered in. Then more recently they seem to have done away completely with them.  Check your Sprint.com account as a lot of grandfathered in customers are still receiving a monthly discount off installment billing but you will have to order directly from Sprint I believe.
That's bad news for them. Why would someone stay with them on a more expensive plan if they don't offer that.. I can't find any news article about this. Besides from a year ago, when they stopped it, and then a few months later, backtracked.

You still are getting a discount at this point IME and if you're grandfathered into a good plan it may still be worth it. I suppose it depends on your current plan.

Do any stores have display models in stock? I want to see if the plus fits in my hand...

I don't think so but there are sites where you can do a print out. Though it's not the same thing when you factor in weight, and thickness.
Also sites like phonearena will show you phone comparisons if there is a large phone you know works for you.

IME even if you're grandfathered in, you can only order the phones online to get the two year upgrade. If you're eligible for the upgrade you should see it as an option an option when you select the phone you want.

Yes, but not on contract price. Don't will cost me 550, instead of 750. Big deal. I'm talking about $200. Or like it used to be when you had Amazon, best buy etc competing with each other. .01¢
