    Default Oh man! I'm kicking myself.

    My dad has to use a BlackBerry for his govt job. I always catch him making little comments about wanting a "real" smart phone. He says he's jealous cuz he wants to swipe his fingers like my mom and I, LOL.

    So my Xmas plan was to get him a "prepaid" Android, and buy a couple months worth of service. Now given the fact that I don't have a lot of money to spend this Xmas, after researching phones, prices, plans, etc. It seemed my best bet was the Virgin Mobile Optimus V. The $35/month plan is very do-able!

    However, the Optimus V is about $130. But THEN, I found out Target has it onsale for $50 right now!! Only problem is, every Target around here out-of-stock.

    This such a bummer. I was so excited about giving him this! Anyone know where I can get a new Optimus V for $50?

    I don't know about $50 but I know you can beat $130 for a new one on ebay

    I bought a replacement OV at Target and returned my full price one I also saw that Amazon had it as a Lightning Deal on Saturday for $50, but that's over now, too.

    I don't think a raincheck will work on Black Friday items, and I can't find it in the current weekly ad. It's also odd that the Target webpage doesn't display a price; but this page will let you search for the phone at any store so if it is in stock anywhere - even 60 miles away, it's well worth the drive if it is still $50. (You can also search for any other item by changing the dpci at the end of the URL.)

    Virgin Mobile's own website has them for $65 at the moment. Also the Triumph for $150.

    Add coupon code SAVE20 and the OV is $52 (plus tax and shipping). If the coupon isn't working, use a different browser or clear cookies and don't log in.
