    When I got my X I asked if they could bill to account and they said no.
    I'm going to assume it's still the same.

    I called the Costco near me. She did not know if they would be getting them in tomorrow. She did say the bundle "would come with the car dock and stuff". She didn't know the price. I don't have a Costco membership, so I asked about that. She said the person making the purchase has to have one, not the person who will be using the phone.

    The $279 price is freaking out of this world!! Too bad I don't know anyone with a Costco membership and the nearest one is over an hour away.

    Come on Sam's Club do something similar!!!

    Membership is only $50 and is refundable if you're not happy.
    Dont shy away from going there to sign up and grab the deal on the phone/accessory bundle.

    I called the three costcos in pittsburgh and they did not know anything about this bundle. They each said they will get the phone tomorrow and for 279 you get the phone and their normal bundle which is a case, car CHARGER (not dock) and screen protector. I am thinking people might be calling and just asking about the bundle and this is what they are answering. Be sure to ask if it is the bundle with the docks. They said they might have it tomorrow but they weren't told about it yet. They each told me to call in the morning.

    The dock pack is confirmed. You don't even need to call.

    Costco plans to introduce the Motorola DROID BIONIC with a $280 price and free accessory kit?

    You walk in the front door.
    Go to the membership desk
    Pay $50
    Get a picture taken
    They give you a membership card.

    Takes 10 mins tops.

    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.

    There is not a Cosco within 500 miles of me. I stopped in a Sam's thinking they would be trying to compete. The wireless employee said Sam's was dropping VZW all together and not getting the Bionic at all.

    Which is funny because I called 2 of the Sam's clubs in my area and they both said they would be picking up VZW within the next weeks and to call around the 15th to see what phones they will be offering...

    sounds like Sam's Club uses different Master Agent's depending on the region.

    I went and got the membership. I'll cancel it in a month and get my money back if I don't go there to get anything else.

    i did ask if they can bill the account, and they can't since it's Costco's phone, and they are selling them and they are not on consignment like it would be at the VZW store.
