    I got in today at work at 4am and my boss said we got the bionic in and we have the pallet display. i was like holy crap. We will sell it tomorrow but we only have 6 in stock. The costco deal is navi dock. bedside dock, extra battery, car charger, and 16gb sd card.

    Price: $179.99 w/299.99 tax (meaning it will tax 299.99 but add that tax to 179.99.) thats what i heard but not sure
    DO NOT QUOTE ME ON THIS PRICE!

    I work at the costco in california

    PS. The $299.99 price is verizons in store price BUT i also heard that verizon will NOT have the costco deal.

    Dont know about other costcos tho. A high demand item like this is small. i suggest u be there in front of the doors before 10am. When xbox360 first came out we only had 16 that day out of over 100 ppl lined up. so be on the safe side if you want that phone. But im sure it wont be that hardcore for the phone

    What location in California? Seems like a low number for one in a major city.

    So you're reporting a $179 price at Costco WITH the bundle? That would be fantastic!

    I thought it was the other way around. ie, you buy the phone for $299, and they throw in $179 worth of free accessories and you pay tax on the $179.

    i work at the concord costco.

    yes u can by a phone as long as your with the person who has a costco membership.

    yes this happens to alot of costcos on high demand items. low quanties

    like i said in my earlier post DO NOT QUOTE ME ON PRICE. that was word of mouth from my boss.

    Costco does do better deals on phones than any carrier

    But just to be clear, the "word of mouth" is that the phone will retail for $179 WITH the bundle, correct?

    It will cost $299 with free accessories is likely. If I understand the $179 is just a value somehow used in the calculation of tax paid

    They will tax the $179 price of the accessory bundle.
    Costco dosent do coupons anymore, everything is "Instant Rebate" which means they're selling the bundle but you're not paying the retail price, just the tax.

    So $299+$179+(tax for your state)-$179

    Yes you need a Costco membership unless you have a friend or family member with a membership you can go their with them as a guest and purchase the phone.

    I just went to the Verizon store. I Bought 2 multi media docks (one for home one for work), extra battery with dock, case (yes the phone fits in the dock with the case once you remove the base insert), hdmi cable, and screen protectors. Total price was $150.34. They will give you a bundle discount for buying multiple products. You do not have to buy a bundled package they offer. Also they gave me my corporate discount on top of the bundle package. The media base comes with a remote which looks cool. The only flaw I see so far is the base has a striaght pin for the power plug which comes out of the base way too easy if you move the base. There are 3 USB inputs on the back of the dock. I am going to try to plug power into one to see if that works of course I need the phone to know. You can connect the phone to a TV via hdmi and use wireless keyboard and mouse via the USB ports on the dock instead of paying $299 for the lapdock which to me is cool but way over priced. The extra battery dock has the stadard micro-usb on the back for charger. It also has a plug that extends for the side to plug into the phone so that you can charge the extra battery and the phone battery with the same power cord. All I need now is the phone which I will have at 9 AM tomorrow.

    Just got off the phone with the nearest Costco (about an hour away) and put my name on one for tomorrow :D. They will have 6 and I was the 6th person to call, and they also confirmed that the accessory pack is part of the deal.

    LOL I love these forums.

    When I get home I might give my local Costco a call before I head to class. Hopefully they have more than 6 in :icon_eek:
