    I'll believe it when I see it (or hear it after I call tomorrow). My past experience leads me to believe that the salespeople mistook the AT&T/T-Mobile Note II with the Verizon version. Those versions are already online and are going to be in stores soon.
    I really hope you're right though. That would be a nice early present.

    I was just on Maui 10/5 and the Verizon rep there said that they were supposed to get it December 10. They said it would be ship to home only from that store. Then today I called the Costco in Salem, Oregon and the rep there said they are supposed to have it available for purchase in store December 10. So I gotta wait four more days.

    I was in a Costco tonight and the rep told me that they have received their dummy phones, but no inventory yet. They expect it any day, but he did not have a specific date.
    Current Devices:
    OnePlus One
    LG G3 - AT&T
    Motorola Moto X - unlocked GSM
    Samsung Galaxy Note 8 - LTE AT&T
    Apple iPad Mini Retina - 32GB LTE

    The Costco rep I spoke to knew nothing and even said the tax savings is not that much ("maybe $30") when referring to the other carrier versions. I was surprised he kinda just blew me off! But it depends on the rep, I've seen other guys there at different hours who are more knowledgeable. But dude really made me think twice...why am I buying it from Costco again? I get points/contract extension gift card at Best Buy...Hmm

    I stopped in yesterday. Our rep said a memo went out saying it will be available at "select locations" on the 10th. She was not sure if that meant the top 50 mobile locations or top 100. At the very least though, we should be able to order online on the 10th. She also said they likely won't be available until around 9 am pacific. So us east coast folks should wait to come into the store until after noon. Take with the usual grain of salt...

    Well, you also get 90 days to decide if you like the phone. Also, Costco partnered with SquareTrade recently to provide insurance for phones. It's 100.00 flat fee with a 25.00 deductible. My last two phones were something like 6.95 a month with a 50.00 deductible. Current phones have huge deductibles. I looked up the insurance for a T-Mobile Note 2 and it is 7.99 for full coverage with a 135.00 deductible. I just found this document that shows that the insurance on a Note 2 from T-Mobile starting March 17, 2013 will be 11.99 a month with a 175.00 deductible. http://www.phoneclaim.com/documents/...na-Devices.pdf

    Good point. There are always benefits/cost savers laid into buying electronics at Costco (either thru bundles or ease of resolving quality issues). My current situation has me looking for more initial cost savers (lower total price), but these are important factors too. (The free accessories are not really on my radar)

    Same here. I couldn't care less about the accessories. I'm personally more concerned about the ease of return and customer care that Costco offers. Although, after looking into the insurance costs, it sounds like Costco is offering a good value with SquareTrade.

    Definitely the best reason to buy from Costco. I'm also secretly hoping that a miracle will occur and a nexus 4 will be released within the 90 days of purchase so I can return the note 2 for the nexus experience... Not counting in it, but just in case...

    So I called my local Costco and they said they are getting the Note II TOMORROW (Monday).

    The price is going to be a WHOPPING $329! But for the average person that price will be about the same as with Verizon because you are paying tax from the $329, not the $699, but plus you're getting that accessory kit and other things like the SquareTrade insurance, but IMO the Best Buy Geeksquad insurance is much better. ($10/mo, no deductible, replace as many times as you want. SquareTrade is $99 for two years, which I most likely won't be with the phone for two years, and plus a $25 deductible, and you can only replace 4 times.)

    I have a $50 upgrade credit (which 3rd party retailers don't take) so I am going to buy from Verizon. Such a shame, I could already have had the Note II for half a month already.

    I called Costco on Monday and they said it didn't come in as expected. I called Tuesday and they said it was delayed and should arrive on the 19th. I went ahead and bought one at a local Verizon store. I love it. I'm going to get my wife's from Costco when they get them in.

    My Costco got in 4 Verizon Galaxy Note 2 devices today. They are 299.99. Salem, OR.
