    Thumbs up Just got the best deal ever!!!!

    Just got the best deal ever!
    Alright, Monday of this week I went to Best Buy and pre-ordered two Droids, one for me and one for the wife. Did this for $50 prepay on each. Well, I went to Best Buy on Friday at 10a.m. and picked up my Droids. I am switching over from AT&T to Verizon, so two new 2 year contracts for me, yeay! LOL. Anyway, I walked out of the store paying $431 and some change (2 droids, 1400 select family talk plan) $199 for each phone.

    Well me and the wife played with them all night it seems. Then I noticed that her phone, the back light would not stay off, after checking all the appropriate settings decided that this thing was faulty. This thing would just stay on even when I pushed the power button momentarily to put it in sleep mode this thing would just come back on after a few minutes, that is no good. Also, on mine when you opened the camera app it would just constantly click...

    So I decided to take these back today and exchange them for new ones. I also printed out the sears ad for $149 to get price match. The chick behind the counter said "no problem" to the exchange. Then I presented my Sears ad, and to my surprise she said that she could beat the $149 price tag. She told me that Verizon stores where offering the Droids for $49 dollars!!!!!!!!!!! And that she would give me that price!!!! So I walked out of there smiling with my 2 $49 dollar Droids. Me and the wife were talking in the truck afterwards, and I told her that I did not believe Verizon was offering these for 49 bucks. So we went to a Verizon store acting like we did not even know what a Droid was, to gather intel.... The best they could do was $249 with new contract and offer a $100 mail in rebate for a total of $149 (six months down the road when rebate check comes in).

    So I just wanted to share, this awesome experience with you guys and ask:

    Have any of you had anything like this happen?

    Should I feel guilty, knowing that this chick messed UP???

    Please respond!!

    Run....run very very fast. That is an amazing oopsie.....I know you probably feel guilty, but I doubt she will lose her job over it.

    Hope these other two Droids have no defects.

    Yeah I hope they work out. I would hate to have to take them back and then they try to fix there mistake... I don't think they can do anything though. When the palm pre came out there was some best buys making the mistake for selling them for $99 instead of $199. I remember reading something about Best Buy chairman commenting on the mistake saying that there was nothing that could be done. But, still don's want to risk it.

    Wait..WTF? I bought mine at Verizon store.. for $299.. with 100 rebate. I got 25% off on all extras (dock, charger and car cradle), but how did you get the extra $50 less? I came over from iPhone too! I want that $50 extra back!! What did you say to get that? That sux that they give different prices to people.

    Don't know man. I walked into the store and the $249 w/mail in rebate is what was printed on the paper in front of the display.

    But, I got mine for $49....Still in shock, and I love it even more....

    Thanks. And the first joke ought to do something with Arkansas spelling education.
    Hmm... I wonder if you posted a copy of your receipt whether my Alabama-educated Best Buy clerks would pricematch it.
