Wanted to create a thread to list all of the various prices/deals on the Bionic around launch date (if allowed under forum rules). I'll try to update the lead post regularly to incorporate all announced prices as added to this thread.

1) Verizon telesales/online - $299 (phone order only so far) (as of 9/7)
2) Verizon stores - $299 (9/8)
3) Costco - $279 w/ accessory bundle (9/8) (ymmv)
4) Amazon - $179 (new) or $249 (upgrade) or $199 (new)
5) Walmart/Let's Talk - $199 new, $249 on contract
6) Wirefly - $249
7) Bestbuy - $299
8) Let's Talk special - $159 using coupon for new lines. Code = take20back (makes me wish I could add a line, oh well, unlimited data is a fair tradeoff)

I just talked to Best Buy... NO Package deals. Just the phone @299 w/2yr contract renewal

I'm going to Costco. My local one verified that they have stock and WILL sell it on 9/8 with accessories for $299

disappointing about bestbuy. gonna try BJs soon since i need to make a trip for groceries anyway

I spoke w/ someone from BJs last week. He said they were basically Verizon Wireless stores inside of BJs (as opposed to Costco being a 3rd party reseller) so they will have the Bionic for the same pricing as the stand alone VW corporate stores w/ no deals.

I remember someone saying they had heard that the accessories that are part of the Costco deal will be third party accessories, and therefore may not be of the best quality. Does anyone know if there is any truth to this?

I'm planning on heading out to Sam's club on Thursday as well. Don't have a Costco that's convenient to me so no membership there.

from what I know, there are NO third party standard docks, car docks, batteries or web top adapters yet... I could be wrong. I would assume that these will be official bionic accessories.

Thanks. I was at BJs today and the guy was pretty unhelpful. He basically told me to try tomorrow and didn't give me any info regarding price or bundles. Lucky for me the BJs and VZW store are in the same complex, so I'll try one first and then the other.

"If you plan on switching to the Bionic from a feature phone and your contract is up soon, you can get a $100 gift card to go toward the price of your new Bionic." -- from Hands-On With The Motorola Droid Bionic For Verizon at TechCrunch

Anybody able to confirm that this works when ordering over the phone?

Also, do you know if this will work if you are already eligible for an upgrade?

I currently have an LG Env Touch feature phone and I was eligible for upgrade on Aug 25th.

Just heard almost the same information at the King of Prussia store here in PA. The only difference is that he couldn't guarantee the case and screen protectors. Said that all phones usually have that but he wasn't sure if the rest of the accessories would replace or be in addition to the case/protectors.

i'll be purchasing mine in-store at off-contract pricing ($580 or whatever)..

does anyone know if account discounts apply for those purchases? I have a 25% discount from the postal service on my account, and I know when I bought my tbolt I did have cheaper pricing as a result, but that was the first time that I remember seeing it.
