    Thanks for posting the coupon. Has anyone heard if the Charge has any ActiveSync issues?

    4th page bottome right, says something about $320 off, you don't realize it is a phone add becsaue it is for 3 phones and the pic is so small you glance right over it.

    I'm going to break away from the Bionic and make the jump for the Charge, especially now that there is a big discount. I just can't imagine using a 4.5" screen. I'd be like the BK little hands guy. Thank you all for the info on the coupon!!!!

    I was at best buy yesterday and asked the asociate if they have a price match with amazon. And supprisingly they said they didn't. Does that make any sense to you? The "leader" in mobile devices doesn't even price match all competators.

    ^Not surprising. They'll tell you that they can't bring prices that low because they have overhead and commission to make on every one of those phones that they sell. Same with most brick and mortar Verizon 'affiliates', they just can't compete with the super low online prices. Costco on the other hand... I really have no idea how they do it.

    Hopefully Costco will let you use online pricing. But I'm still can't belive that best buy is doing that. Does the Verizon Store allow price match from online?

    It looks like it should be off there $249 - $120 = $129 I think I know what I will do.
    I called and talked to the guy at my local costo and he said that it will be off the $299 price. So it will actually be $179. But still a great deal I think! I plan on going in on Friday and upgrading!

    I agree. I called COSTCO yesterday as well and got the same 411...BUT, I went to my local Verizon Premium reseller (have two different within three miles...10 mi north of Philly, PA) and was able to negotiate two DCs at $129.99 and two Convoys (free after rebate) all with free car chargers and waived activations!!! I converted from an AT&T to a VZW family plan.

    I know that a local VZW premium reseller store in Laguna Hills, CA is also willing to make great deals (I'm in the area once a month) so I'd suggest stopping into one or two of these Premium resellers if you are in the market for a 4G phone.

    Downside is I don't have the COSTCO 90-day exchange or the bundled wired headsets and generic cases, but the prices were well worth the "sacrifice" IMO.

    Only bummer so far is I'm in a little VZ 4G hole when I'm at my home (no too suprising since same for AT&T and somewhat with Clear...only get two bars of signal (~-100dBm) and I drop to 3G ...go a block in any direction and I'm in super-fast 4G!

    Anyway, I'm in the game!!!

    That's what I like to hear! I was hoping this coupon would be useful for non-costco members trying a pricematch as well! I didn't make it to Costco last night... having a new baby can force some changes in plan!

    Went down to Costcos at 10 am. The Droid Charge was retailing at $179 dollars. You did not need the coupon. Unfortunately for me, I wanted to upgrade to the Droid Charge since I was now eligible for a discount on a phone, but the current plan I have will not allow me to upgrade to that price without changing my current plan. I have had this plan for almost 16 years and it is a very cheap plan. The lady at the Kiosk told me that I had to change my plan to the current plans in order to get that price. I asked to speak to her supervisor and she told me the same thing. Went to about 6 different cell phone dealers to see if I could get a better price. No luck, I had to change my plan. Went to Amazon wireless and Wirefly same thing. Finally gave in and went to an Authorized Verizon Wireless center and got the Droid Charge for $299. And yes, I tried to get a discount on the price but no luck.

    Despite all the trouble, I really like this phone.

    So VZW would not price match costco? Or you would not change your plan?

    This is good news to hear that you don't need the coupon to get the price.

    Just picked up a Charge at Costco. As previously said, coupon is not needed. The standard 14 days to try the phone and not be locked into a new/renewed 2-year contract. You have 90 days to return/exchange the phone at Costco. Phone comes with a "bonus pack". You can choose from one of two bonus packs, one with a car charger, carrying case and wired headset and one with a car charger, carrying case and screen protector. They ran out of the ones with the screen protector so I took the one with the headset.

    My wife got her Charge on May 16th for $299 - $50 off = $249 total.

    Went in to Costco today and the Charge is selling for $179 so I asked about the price being reduced from when we bought it. The clerk said we could get $70 back, no coupon required. So we ended up paying $179.

    Costco is the place to go for a phone.
