    A friendly tipster sent in some good info regarding Costco and the Droid RAZR to Android Central. From the image above, it shows that Costco will be offering the Droid RAZR bundled with a free bonus pack worth $119.97 including an HD dock, HDMI cable, portable charger, and a second wall charger.

    Don't you just love Costco? ;)

    I think the only phone I ever chose not to buy directly from the carrier was when I bought the original RAZR, but even then, a year or two later when the updated model came out, I bought it from an AT&T store. Seems strange getting a Verizon phone from some other store, but maybe that's just me...

    The deals are always better than the corporate stores. I bought my Dinc2 from wirefly for $130 less than what Verizon was selling it for.

    This post is Incredible 2!

    Costco has had good deals on all the last major Verizon android phones at launch. I hope they are able to do something with the Galaxy Nexus as well.

    One of these days, Costco is going to finally get sick of people abusing their liberal return policy and things will change. It will be thanks to people like you who have this attitude.

    Is there a reason why people can no longer simply WAIT until the device they desire is out?

    Correct. This is likely why Verizon changed the return time from 30 days to 14 days. People who use a return policy to just "borrow" a phone because they are so impatient that they can't wait a week or 2 are what causes a business to react and ruin it for those who have a legitimate reason to return a product.

    Considering i own a business with 3 offices in CA and spend over $50k per year in Costco (and i'm just one of many) they would accept this phone from me just to keep me coming back. Their return policy is what people are paying membership for! my membership is a $100 per year to be able to shop there.

    I disagree, if a business's return policy allows to borrow a phone for testing and usage and return it within the allowed time based on that business return policy there is no wrong to that. If that business finds that their own policy doe's not make sense anymore and decide to change it, the consumer can make a choice if to keep working with that business. Right now what attract consumers and business owners to shop at Costco is the fact that they can buy with no risk and Costco will take a product back if the its not right. Costco make $150mm per year just from memberships, if they change their return policy they will directly effect that source of income.

    Whether you return a phone or not does not concern Costco. The return policy is negotiated with their contract with vendors.

    God damn, with this bundle the phones will sell out by noon. I'll show up at 12:01 PM and have to leave empty handed.

    I hate my boss today for scheduling a meeting at 11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11.

    I'd rather get a sweet deal on my BILL lol - it far outweighs the up front cost of these devices.

    Yes, you need to be a member, but you can become a member, then cancel it soon after for a full refund.

    Edit: Have a friend or family member buy a Costco Cash card for you, then you can use that to buy your phone without being a member.

    I will most likely try to return my Bionic for this phone. I am tired of my Bionic losing 3G and having to go into airplane mode constantly ampngst other things. Thankfully I have all of my accessories and from what I have seen this deal will be cheaper then the 279 Bionic so I might save some money to buy the car dock and such anyway...
