    How did you do this? I tried and can't get beyond step 1 because the charger is now "out of stock".

    People must have wiped out the inventory! Did you try it with just the batteries only?

    I am at checkout with 1 charger and 3 batteries. My total... $9.98

    How come I feel guilty?

    I literally just bought one for $29.99 2 hours ago too. Damn it

    Just ordered the charger and 3 extended battery kits for $10, let's see if they catch on to this before they actually ship them. I just paid $31 with tax last night at the VZW store for one of these, so 3 of them plus a charger for $10 is a hell of a deal. I will keep the charger, give one to my girlfriend for her new Rezound and then probably sell the others.

    That probably won't work, because if you have the receipt they will see what you paid. If you don't, they will have to look them up on your account and again, they will see what you paid. Nice try though! haha

    Haha seriously! I wouldn't hold your breath though. Odds are Verizon will send out cancellation emails due to a 'glitch' on their website.

    Yeah, that happens a lot with SlickDeals. The find these glitches and some people get them in time to take advantage, but at some point when VZW sees 1,000 orders in an hour for the same item, they know something is up and they see the prices and they put the smack-down on all the orders. Used to be with retail stores that if they mis-marked it they had to honor the price, but with websites they can always claim a "technical error" and get out of it.

    That would be over the top. I'd sell em on CL. We have 5 accounts with VZW and while I can live with saving $80 for the batteries, no way would I go that low.

    So selling them on craigslist isn't low? Come on, first I was kidding and second it's not like we all have a snowballs chance in hell VZW is going to honor these orders. But hey...we can dream can't we.

    So to those that think this is shady.... If you were reading the paper's realty section and saw a home that you were sure was vastly under-priced, would you think it was wrong to pay the asking price and then flip it for a profit? Or would you call the person and inform them that they are not asking enough for their home and that they should raise the price? ;-)
