Default Aria $99 at costco

For those considering an Aria, Costco currently has it at their cell phone kiosk for 99 bucks. They also give a car charger, headset(the phone already has one), and a case.

You also get 90 days to decide if you wanna keep it. After 30 though, you must choose another phone because the contract is only 30 day remorse period.- still better than usual.
price of phone at costco - $ 99
price of costco membership - $ 50
regular price of aria - $129

so you pay 20 bucks extra- actually less depending on sales tax.
but you get a costco member ship and the accessories for 20 bucks
if you already have a costco membership then you get an even better deal.



I also grilled the lady before buying it, there is no seperate contract with costco, they will not tack on their own early term fee.


-no, I dont work for them, just happy I got a decent deal( I already had a membership)

amazon.com has it for .01 with a new 2 year agreement.

or in my case, 49.99 to upgrade an existing line.

Yeah Wirefly and Amazon are great for getting things cheap, I just hate dealing with them(well... I can't say Amazon but I've dealt with Wirefly). It's not that it's really difficult or anything just exceptionally annoying.

Watch it with wirefly, from what I understand, they have a seperate contract with you, something to do with early termination. Not sure about amazon. Point is you have to be careful what your signing. Dont be afraid to ask questions about what your signing.

Also, I dont like waiting for things to come in mail

Amazon has the same 181 day deal that you have to pay them if you make a change in the contract.

The biggest reason to use Costco is if you live in CA. Since for some reason they do not follow the state statue and only charge tax on the discounted amount instead of the full amount. I had a friend check on it today just to make sure since I had heard that is what they do and that is how it rang up.

I just received the Costco coupon book(7/15-8/8) in the mail and it has a coupon for the Aria for up to $100 off. On the back in the fine print it states that "Minimum $30 data plan required with purchase of phone". That must be a misprint since ATT changed their data plans to $15/$25 and there is no $30 plan anymore.

It was probably just a typo then. You should go back and see if they will give you the $50 off. It is still within your return period.

well on the two that I bought.... they could not find the rebate so they are giving me two $50 credits on my first two bills.

This works for me as well as it would take that long to get a check back anyhow.
