But I still held off, didn't buy the Bionic and now waiting on the GN and my upgrade was just elgible as of (10-23) for my $50 discount. On my verizon app it says I'm elgible now but a few months ago it didn't, that's when VZW told me I could upgrade for a $20 fee. Hope this makes sense.

Ok, I saw someone mention their $50 discount from VZW. I'm pretty sure, but could be off a few days, but when I went into VZW last night the kid there looked up my acct and says yes sir, you are due an upgrade and a discount. After a minute he says, it will cost $269.00 that's with my $30 discount.
Now I haven't kept up with pricing much but after 2yrs and having been a VZW customer for as long as I can remember (oh ya, Star-Tacs) lol Any who, I was sure I had read some place that we got $50 off the $299 but he said no. So I said bye. I'm still looking for my original receipt from my Droid but seems he would have mentioned I was a few days early if that was the case.
As stated in other discussions, I would prefer not to deal with VZW locally so I was checking on Costco. So this thread has been very helpful in that regard. I have always wanted to check it out anyway because of good deals I hear about online so I wouldn't mind at all paying a membership fee. I think it would be more than worth it for their return policy especially on a $300 cell phone, not to mention the bonus accessories that most will want also.
So I think I'll make a run to Costco around noon and see if all goes ok.
If there are any other tidbits of info I should know, I would greatly appreciate knowing.
When you are first eligible for the upgrade, you get a $30 credit. As you get closer to your contract expiration date, they give you a $50 credit instead.
Wish Costco had one day passes so I could check out the store. I want to see if they have anything I want that BJs doesn't give me as they are both locally to me. Not about to pay for a membership to find out.
