    The title says it all, I am going tomorrow to get a bionic for me and my wife, and I want to know if anyone has had luck with this, I would just get it outright from costco but half is going on my bb credit card.

    So if no one responds by then I will let you know if I was able to get it or not. I remember people saying you could

    It may depend upon the manager's discretion for your local store. Generally my store won't price match Costco since it's considered a wholesale store and has membership fees.

    Someone on here told me they would.

    I'd be interested to see if they did.

    Uh it would actually be worth paying $50 to sign up for a membership cuz you would save $20 each on the phones & get the very nice accessories that are def worth it (lol & you still get to shop there for a yr). Plus 90 day return policy. Also keep in mind Costco only takes AMEX for credit, dbt or check...

    P.s. My Costco AMEX card nets me at least $200 a yr on the rebate check...

    & the only reason I've ever gone do best buy is to fondle gadgets... & then promptly buy them online for cheaper & no tax. ;-)

    I have a membership the executive level actually. And there is no way I can get an amex now. Hence the reason I am trying to get bbym to match the Costco bundle.

    Well I guess if I can at least get them to match the price of the phone and throw in maybe a zagg shield or something, the costcos near me don't evej have the bionic right now. :shrug: and aren't sure when they will get more.

    Guess I will find out later after work.

    I'd say just keep working them, play hardball & try not to settle. That is if the mobile area functions like the
    TVs - my brother chiseled them into honoring an online price for a TV on some site & for them to match the PS3 accessory bundle offered by Costco, so it's possible... Good luck

    Local BB's in my area won't price match at all. COSTCO is absolutely worth the membership fees. They have great sales on all kinds of stuff and have really good food stuffs as well.

    Anyway, good luck.

    It may be worth a shot but BBY's price-match policy generally requires that the store they're matching have the items in stock. Also, I don't believe bundles are covered under price-match either. Unless BBYM's policies differ from the rest of the store. Not trying to be a downer, just letting you know why they might decline the match.

    They also want the store to be within a certain distance from them.

    I have tried to get my BBY to match a Sam's price on a camera. My BBY told me they do not match warehouse clubs because the cost to join makes BBY price cheaper. When I told them Sam's was $75 cheaper on the same camera and my membership was $35 a year, I would take the $40 mark down to get my BBY reward points. NO DICE!

    It is up to the manager in the bbym section as they are technically a different entity from the rest of the store, at least that's what I am understanding.

    Now here's the kicker, NONE of the bbym I have called near me have ANY single accessory. So... getting the bundle is no dice. So they have no way to honor the bundle... but one of the guys is going to another bb to pick up a bionic. And I'm on costco's list when they get more in and I will get a second one from them with the bundle... my wife can live without all the extras she just wants a case.

    Edit: Having just checked the news I am going to try and get them to pricematch the radioshack deal and get the 100 off.... this just keeps getting better... but those new snapdragons that are supposed to be out next year.... man its a wonderful time for technology
