    I was lucky to get my Droid Bionic from Costco on the 8th because all US stores sold out that day. They didn't have any fancy displays on the 8th when they sold out. I went back in a couple days later and saw this. Looks like Costco really means business now! I've never seen one of these displays done for a phone. Wow!

    They didn't have that when I got my Bionic...they only had 4 total in the store and they sold out within 30 minutes. Looks like they have a nice stock of them.

    I also got my Bionic from Costco on the 8th, from what they told me, each store got in only 6 units for the first day.
    The store that I got it from had that display up in the morning when I first went in to check on it (there shipment had not arrived yet and I was able to get put on the waiting list, I was the fourth to request it and the first back in the store to buy it and get it activated). When I went back into the store to get the phone, they had moved the display out and were shrinkwrapping it to take it to the back.
    I thought it was kinda funny at the time becuase it was such a big display with hundreds of cards in it and they only got 6 units, I even made a comment to my wife about it. :D

    They have a large stock. I've not gone to Costco in almost 2 weeks, but the only display like that they've ever had in ours was for the Xoom, as of my last trip.

    I'd like to know what store that is! I called my local Costco yesterday and they told me they have sold out twice and don't know when they will be getting more back in stock.

    Then again, there are two other Costco's in my area that I haven't checked with yet.

    I ordered my costco deal online on 9/8. The package arrived this morning, but I'm stuck in my office and will have to wait until I get home to play with it. I just dawned on me that when I placed the online order, I didn't have to prove that I am a Costco member. So, I guess the deal is for everyone, at least online. You will need your costco membership card to buy it in the store.

    The pics don't look like stock they look like cards you take to get one - they may have 3 for real.

    You got me excited for getting Costco's deal online. No Costco within 500 miles of me. I looked on the site and the Bionic is not even there now. D3s and X2s are the only VZW Motorolas.

    It's out of stock. Go to the home screen then click on the Bionic deal.

    I would check back periodically. It comes and goes with their supply at the time.

    That's the first place I looked today. Not there when I pull up costco.com. Clicked on electronics and cell phones, not there. Searched on costco.com, no results. Post a link for me. (they may have location filtering?)

    Ha! Yes! Yes I did take those with my Bionic. Those were actually my first pics with the new phone. Had to shrink them down before uploading here. :)

    Do you know if they actually had a unit in stock for each of those?

    I have called 3 costcos in Orange County and they all tell me they are out of stock. I'm looking to nab one of these before the deal ends. Need to contemplate if driving through traffic to Van Nuys is worth it :p


    FYI, direct link to the Bionic on Costco is here: http://membershipwireless.com/index.cfm/go/shop/do/PhoneDetails/productId/4751

    C
    ouldn't find any way to get there on their site.........I'm hoping that is not a sign the deal is dead.

    Oh I forgot to mention, I also shot some video in Costco of everything using my Droid Bionic. Should I post it?

    That's exactly what it is, but for every card there will be a bionic. They don't leave the cards out with no inventory

    Sent from someplace, and with something that you need not worry about.
