    We have an exclusive for you today. One of our tipster/sources let us know that CostCo will be offering an amazing exclusive deal on the Droid Bionic. The price is the same as through Verizon, $299.99 on contract, but with that you also get an extra Battery, a charger for that battery, a Docking Station and a Navigation Dock included! Supposedly, they will be receiving their displays on September 8th, and the phone soon thereafter.

    This deal seems to pack in some great value for that $300 bucks. What do you guys think?

    This might be the first time I buy a phone somewhere other than the Verizon store. The standard dock is a must for me after getting one for my droid 1

    I hope someone I know has a Costco membership. I will definitely get it from there if I know someone who does.

    So just so I have this right, since I'm grandfathered in to a unlimited data contract I can go to CostCo, buy this for $299 and keep my umlimited data, yes?

    What I think is, it would be great if you guys would add the full size pictures instead of these ones that when I click on I think they actually get smaller...

    Other than that, this is great news! :p

    Shouldn't mattered where you bought, but we just stopped by Verizon store yesterday & asked about the potential of buying the Bionic & one of the reps there said I get to keep my current unlimited data.

    My question is this: we may be eligible for the discounted price ($300) if we order through Verizon, but will we get it with an early upgrade (<2 years on contract) or even for an upgrade at all? I know when I've tried to take advantage of sale prices in the past, my account didn't show as eligible.

    I'm just going to buy the phone from Verizon online like I did with the OG Droid. Pick your phone/accessories/plan/number - DONE. Get it next day. I don't want to have to deal with people...and driving there. Plus I get the $50 off.

    This is the part that concerns me. "Soon" as in a month after or a day after? If I have to wait too much longer after the 8th, while everyone else is walking around with the Bionic, just to get this deal I may start vomiting blood :mad:

    Yikes - I'm up for the NE2 discount, so I guess I have to weigh whether I want the cash off, or all the goodies that Costco has. As long as VZW says I'm eligible for upgrade, I can get it from Costco, right?

    That is a very good question! My local costco still doesn't have the Droid 3 yet. They have a demo unit, but non for sale. they keep telling me that their first shipment keeps getting delayed for unknown reasons.

    I'm hoping Costco will get bionc on launch day or within a week!
