    Well, im glad that you were able to get the discount. The folks at the VZW I went to didn't know of the price drop either and it looked like there Was no manager available since the sales assosicate walked to the back room to talking on the phone.

    I suspect they'll try to push the old price to uninformed customers...at least for the rest of today.

    So I purchased online through VZ the Bionic and HD Dock. I had to pay $12.00 and applied the rest to my account to bill me later. Well imagine my surprise when my auto-payment took out the normal amount. I went to VZ online and account is paid-in-full and no charges phone/dock showing on the account which should be $300.

    Anyone else order online, did it show up later, or did they screw up in my favor for once?

    If you bought your phone from verizon in the last 30 days they have a policy that they will take the 50 dollars off for the bionic

    I bought mine 6 days ago. I called *611 and asked to speak to a representative. I nicely explained that I had just purchased my Bionic over this past weekend and noticed the price had dropped today. She put me on hold for a couple of minutes then returned telling me that a $50 credit was added to my account! [​IMG]

    Droid Bionic at 149.99

    Walmart had the Bionic on their website at 149.99 and Best Buy matched the price in the Best Buy Mobile store at our Mall. You might want to check to see if Walmart still has that price before you buy.

    VZW Drops Bionic Price to $249.00

    Hi DroidAxiom,We do have a price protection program that allows you to be credited if the price of your device goes down within 14 days of purchase. You must have the original receipt or order confirmation showing the price charged and the payment method used. If the device was billed to your account, this information can be seen on your bill. I hope this helps out. Thanks!^CBVZW SupportFollow us on Twitter @VZWSupport

    May I ask if your purchased the Droid Bionic in a Verizon Wireless corporate store? If so, we can issue a price adjustment within 14 days of purchase. If it was done in store, go in there with the receipt. If you had the order shipped to you, give us a call at 800.922.0204 in order to request the price adjustment.Tamara H.VZW SupportFollow us on Twitter @VZWSupport

    I purchased my bionic from a place called

    A Wireless Verizon Wireless Premium Retailer

    I tried calling 611 and discovered that they could not even access the purchase on my records.

    Apparently, they are just an authorized seller of Verizon products and so the person on the phone could not help. Something about them following their own business practices and they may or may not choose to follow verizons 14 day price policy.

    Now, im usually wary of places like these but this was a brick and mortar store where everything Verizon Was plastered on the walls along with all the sales people wearing Verizon logo shirts.

    I suppose it was naive of me to assume this was the official store, but im surprised that Verizon would allow something like this to exist. Until now, I've been happy with verizons service, but leave it to one of your authorized sellers to leave a sour taste in my mouth.
