    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.

    That would be cool if Best Buy did price match.

    I went into my local Costco store and bought a membership this evening. I used the promotion that they have here:
    Costco Printable Coupon: $10 Costco Cash Card with New Gold Star Costco... - dealspl.us

    I ended up getting the Executive Membership for $100 with the $20 Cash Card. The woman explained to me that you will get $50 back on the membership guaranteed at the end of the membership. Or, if you want to downgrade, you can get the $50 back then.

    The way I looked at it, it was another $20 off the Bionic with the bundle. I did confirm that they would have it tomorrow. The guy said that about 20 people have called about it. He told me that there is no way they would have that many actually in stock.

    I plan to get there early.

    No, but they only accept cash, check, AMEX or Discover(I think). You CAN get an AMEX/COSTCO card from them but it's not required. Now, having said that, the Verizon Kiosks at COSTCO are a separate company and may have a different policy.
