    Just curious, did you have to push them to give you the credit? Maybe walking in there in a civilized manner wasn't the right approach. :)

    Yes, the first sales associate I talked to had no idea that there was a price reduction of the Bionic. He asked another sales person and he said yes it went into effect today, but they couldn't give me any credit. I asked to talk to a Manager and told him I just bought the phone two days ago and was upset about not being told to wait until today to buy the phone, and then he gave me a $30 credit towards next months bill.

    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.
