    Costco has the Samsung Captivate listed for $50 for new 2 year contract and $30 for upgrade contract on their website. I think they made a mistake and reversed the online discount price with the total price because $149.99 and $169.99 is what is listed at their kiosk in the store. I printed out the web page and they honored the price at the store. Get it while you can.

    ETA: Costco updated their website and removed the web page for the phone. Hope some of you were able to take advantage of it.

    I just called the Customer Service phone # on the Costco Wireless website to double check. That price is correct. She said it would be valid for another week.

    Costco often has online only deals.

    It was available online + warehouse. I got the discount at the warehouse. But it's a moot point now. They took down that web page.

    Yes, you have to be a Costco member. I think it's too late to get it at that price anyway. They completely took the phone off their website.

    Costco website seems to sell this phone with plans only. Do you know they sell without plan in person? Cause their retail price looks a lot better than everywhere else.

    It's a shame these deals go so quickly! Cheapest I can find it now is on Wirefly for 69.99 for a two year upgrade.

    Costco is like that in-general. If you see something there, you really need to buy it right then and there because there's no telling whether it'll be there tomorrow.

    Has happened a lot to me. There are few items that they keep as regular "stock". Most things are rather random.

    It was a misprint. I would be surprised if they honored any bought online. They now have it back, but as a $50 discount to bring the phone to $149.99 for a new customer to ATT, and $30 discount to bring the phone to 169.99 for an upgrade....someone messed up big time entering the info in.

    Like I said, I highly doubt anyone who actually ordered from Costco online will get a $30 Captivate. The OP was lucky enough to be in Costco and on their kiosk to see the deal, and recouped at the store. But anyone else, via online, I would guess are out of luck.

    If anyone tried to get that deal, let me know if it works out. I would be surprised!!!

    That is where I ordered from. It runs thru letstalk.com. I just had the unfortunate timing of ordering when tornadoes decided to derail a train in AZ which is slowing down shipment!! LOL!

    I guess it probably would have happened with 2 day delivery too, so I should be at least happy I did not pay for shipping at all!!!

    So ready to get this phone....
