    While searching around online for discounts on the Thunderbolt, I came across this website studentrate that is giving $20 cash back when you buy the Verizon HTC Thunderbolt through Wirefly. Here's a link to the discount if you're interested $20 Cash Back on HTC Thunderbolt .

    If anyone knows of any other discounts/deals, post 'em!

    I went to the Verizon site and bought it for $150. Ended up going to the store and they honored the price. Just go in and say you saw it for $150 online at their website. They also pulled forward my contract 4 months.

    Primary lines can upgrade early one last time as of January 16 of this year. It's called a early upgrade and can be used after 12 months or a 24 month contract. But once you use that after January 16 2001, you can't take advantage of that anymore.

    People with corporate discounts can get the phone for less than the online advertised price. I could have got the phone for $150 but I didn't want to wait until April 3, so I got it on March 17. If I wanted a two year on March 17 I could have paid $199 or waited till April 3 to take advantage of my new every two also for a cost of $150.

    So it's not the reps, when they ring you up on their machine, it automatically discounts the phone at the final checkout screen.

    My contract went to Aug. of this year. As I said I looked at my Verizon page online and it said,' upgrade your phone'. I clicked on it (last Friday) and thought I would keep going forward on the page till it told me I couldn't upgrade till Aug.. Well it just kept going till the price page which said $100 off promotion. Still not believing I continued till I got to pushing the button to buy. I stopped and called my local Verizon store and asked them if they would match the website price of $149.99. She said it was an unadvertized promotion and she would match it at the store. I got her name and immediately went in and bought the phone. She said Verizon wants to get 4G phones out on the street. It was an incredible deal. Do what I did and see if it still works.

    What I do not like about Wirefly is the need for them to revamp your current plan when upgrading a device. They charge a bit more on a monthly basis, which end up costing you more in the long run. They $20 cash back, will cost you hundreds more over a period of 2 years. How do you think they give such good deals on these phones?

    If you bought thru Wirefly, you pay more for your plan monthly.

    Add the additional 20 bucks you pay monthly for the next 2 years and you can add $480 to that $275. Now after 2 years, you paid $755 for the Thunderbolt.

    who the fudge said i bout from wirefly?
    i got it from best buy... $250 was the price of the phone.. some 20 odd dollars in tax.

    but if people bought through wirefly they also got a discount on the price? but still, i guess theyre paying more in the long run.

    and well i got mine on 3/17, so i didnt have to wait even longer LOL

    The prices we have online for the carrier rate plans are no different than what the carriers themselves offer. We do not have authority to change the cost of a rate plan because the payments for your plan do not come to us, they are paid directly to your carrier. The reason why we are able to offer our phones at such low costs are because of our Price Advantage which you can read all about here Wirefly - Free and low prices on new cell phones for every major carrier.
