    I wanted to wait to see the physical phones, and finally got around to the Verizon store last week. They offer $200 for my old phone (SG4) and would have to order the Note 5 64GB.

    I check out Costco. They offer $150 rebate (no trade in) and can order the N5 64GB.

    I sleep on it, do a little more checking and decide to go back to Costco to order.

    UGH. Low stock warning. Needs manager approval to order the N5 64GB They have the 32GB in stock. Phone call placed, manager can't/won't order. I ask them to check back daily and call me when they can order.

    Yesterday, we visit another Costco, and I ask them. They no longer show the 64GB in stock. Unsure if they are going to get more. 32GB still in stock.

    I haven't found any news online about a shortage. Guess they sold out their allotment and are not going to order again right away.

    I can wait, but hate waiting for something that might not happen.

    If you've bought the Note 5 64GB recently, where did you buy it? Why there? Deals?


    Thanks.

    I would do it at Verizon and trade in. That seems like a pretty good deal.

    Don't do 32GB if you ever wanna sell it.

    Only 32gb note 5 being offered at my Costco. No 64gb in inventory. $150 + $15 cash card offer still going on. Why no 64gb Costco? Geez

    Purchased a 64GB black from Verizon last week. There's no shortage of black 64GB if you order from Verizon online.

    There is no 64gb available at best buy either. Mine is placed on back order.

    I think I can get $100+ selling the phone on eBay. Going V means getting $50+ less overall selling the phone.

    We may decide to keep the phone and 'upgrade' my FIL with it. He has a basic phone, so we can't even sub that out for the V trade in.

    I'm running out of room on the SG4 with 24GB total. I'm sure I'd be unhappy with the 32GB down the road.

    Unsure about Costco and why they aren't available. It's a vendor that has kiosks at Costco and they do have a few Costcos per warehouse. I'd like to find out if there is another Costco vendor in the area that isn't affiliated with them, and therefore has a different supply in stock. I'm in Central Jersey. Checked Marlboro and Brick.


    Verizon in Manalapan was going to have to order as well.


    Stopped in Best Buy, saw one employee helping a customer. Saw a few others talking to each other. I looked things over, spent some time playing with the Note 5, G6E+, and then walked out. Nobody approached, or looked over when looked at them. Also couldn't tell exactly what deal they had going, other than wireless charger. Thought they might be doing $200 back, but if it's in BB credit, then probably not a great deal for me.


    I don't mind "it will ship from our warehouse". I do mind "backorder" and not knowing if/when it will ship.

    I got a 64 GB note 5 at Costco in King of Prussia, PA last week. Had to order it, took about a week to come in. Came with a free car charger and a car mount. Plus there is a coupon for the $150 Costco card and a free wireless charger, I was told that those will take about two weeks. Good deal.

    Ordered for Verizon and paid $12.99 and had the phone the very next morning. If you can't get it anywhere you might have to break down and purchase from Verizon. It's only money...........

    I can walk into an AT&T store and pay full price or next plan for a 64gb. In Stock. And Get a free slow wireless charger. But I am holding off for a deal such as the $150 cash back from Costco.

    Yes they have a great deal for new lines. Wish they extended even half of that to current lines.

    Thank you. I'll give them a call tomorrow, and make the trek down to order in person if necessary.

    Another Costco Verizon Note5 6GB in black here. Ordered via the kiosk and took about a week. Same deal... rebate, free stuff. All good! And, no trade in needed.

    When I ordered mine from Verizon a few weeks ago, I was told that most stores don't stock the 64GB, but they do have them in the warehouse. If I had to guess why, I would say to move the 32GB for those people that must have it now or would "settle" on a purchase rather than wait a day or two and order a 64GB.

    Costco KoP can't order them today. He did say he ordered some last week. They may come back in stock, or not.

    Checked out Best Buy. None in stock (Howell), but can be ordered online. No promotion currently (UGH).


    May end up waiting a couple months and checking out BF deals...

    Funny thing... I feel as if I'll be paying an extra $150 to get it now, instead of waiting...

    The SG4 does still work....

    What area are you in if you don't mind me asking? I've been checking at both my local best buy stores for past week and they've only gotten one Verizon 64 GB in stock and it sold soon as it arrived.

    I got lucky with my 64 gig, I had actually pre-ordered the 32 gig, but when I got to best buy to pick up my pre-order, I realized that I needed a 64 with all the memory I needed. So I told the best buy guy if they have a 64, I want to go with it. They had one without a name on it, so I got so lucky!

    That's weird that some of Verizon's is back ordered when I ordered my phone today as an employee they asked if I wanted the 32gb or the 64gb but the 64gb they only had black.
