    Previously, we reported that RadioShack would be coming out with an aggressive marketing offer for their new partnership with Verizon that would amount to $100 dollars off Android smartphones. Today, our sources within the industry have confirmed this for us, and have even provided a picture of a RadioShack document to support it. Here's what our tipster had to say,
    You can see the important details in the first two pages of the doc shown above. Page three is included below. From what we can tell, most of the best Android smartphones will be available in this offer at RadioShack. It makes sense that they are only offering a limited amount of smartphones at first to help control this amazing offer. Still, it's important to note that the list includes the Droid Bionic! You can see it on page two.

    NE2 and Loyalty Discounts apply?

    I wonder if you can stack this heavy discount with your New Every Two credit (I have $50 NE2) as well as a VZW customer Loyalty credit ($50 as well). I know that in VZW stores I can stack the two together.

    If so, I might be able to snag my Bionic for $99!

    Spoke with a rep today after I left work (asst mgr). He said it'll run $199 (Bionic) as stated in the thread.

    No rebates.

    Also he said that he wouldn't process any Verizon promotional credits.

    Awesome game show! I do have to give my local Best Buy guy some props. He knew rooting and also knew the names of the rumored upcoming phones. I was pretty impressed!

    Clearly, Verizon is the winner or loser as the case may be. They only have to know 1 line of products. At least Best Buy and The Shack have to know about multiple carriers.

    I've always bought our phones from Verizon Corporate stores. I feel as though we've received good service when ever there's been an issue. But, this deal could persuade me to stray, unless Verizon is willing to match it.

    $799 full retail? OUCH!

    Does anyone know where the best place to buy at retail pricing? I'm considering canceling the third line I opened for the Bionic and just paying outright for it. But not for $799. Or even $699.

    AHHHHH so glad a good friend of mine works for Radio Shack!! He knew about this promotion before it even got posted up on here.

    Here's another tip for you people trying to get a cheaper Bionic. Apparently Radio Shack buys back your old phones too and gives you store credit, even more if you still have the box to the phone. OG Droids get you something like $30 back and it'll knock the Bionic to $150-170 range which is awesome for this phone having come out last week!!!

    The full retail price of the phone through Verizon is cheaper. According to the Verizon website, it is only $590 there.

    I'm not yet eligible for an upgrade. What's the full retail price for the Bionic? $100 off of a say, $550 full retail price would make a heck of a difference for me.

    The $100 off is for Radio Shack. Where full retail is $799.
    Verizon retail - $590.

    I haven't found it any cheaper yet.

    IMO, for $30 it's better to hold on to the OG Droid as a back up. Also, they go for around $80-$100 on ebay. Trade-in is a bad deal unless you can't be bothered.
