    I am eligible for an upgrade. If I buy at Costco, do I still get the $100 off the price for signing a new contract? I want my Verizon rebate card

    I believe those are only honored by Verizon stores.

    I'm wondering the same thing, where should I purchase it? I, for whatever reason, never got one of those $100 of cards... I'd love to buy it on Amazon to save the money on tax (I'm in CA) but I also don't really want to wait any more for this phone! Plus who knows if/when Amazon will even have it. I'm on the OG and want to upgrade as soon as possible. So where do people recommend buying it?

    I'm in Cali too. Here's my situation (maybe some of you are similar):

    1. I have a $50 upgrade credit from VZW.
    2. I got the Living Social VZW deal, so that's another $50 that I have to use in store.
    3. BUT.... buying in store means the stupid full tax situation, which would come out to $57.
    4. Costco is selling for $289.99 which comes out to about $315, including tax and the bundle that'll come with it.

    So, I guess my options are:

    1. Buy at Verizon and pay $199.99 (using all my discounts) + $57 tax = $257.
    2. Buy at Costco and pay $315, lose my $50 credit at VZW, then use my Living Social coupon to buy $50 in accessories.
    3. Buy at another retailer that doesn't charge full tax on the phone AND honors my $50 NE2 discount. That way, I pay $249 + $22 (taxes) = $272, and I can still use my Living Social coupon for accessories at corporate store.

    Question is, which retail stores will honor my $50 upgrade AND only charge tax on the paid price? Best Buy, Radio Shack???
