    So I pre ordered the Incredible through Best Buy the other day. I asked them about Verizon's online discount of $100 and another $100 off with new every two discount. The sales rep did not know about the deal but said they would price match whatever Verizon had on their site. I'm hoping they will match it, the guy seemed really nice. Anyone else run into this?

    Haha, the thing is that the NE2 isn't going to be on their site--public page; it's going to be under your account--which is on their site.

    You can try printing out your page that shows your NE2 discount though.

    They will. You get the phone for $100.00 because of the $100 instant rebate for ordering online (best buy no longer does mail in rebates so it is an instant) you save the other $100.00 because of your ne2(best buy should be able to pull that up and see you are due for that) i used to work at best buy for 5 years.

    Best Buy wont have there display up until the 28th of april and is also the date they will be getting the phones(but cant sell them till the 29th street date)

    I was told by a VZW rep the $100 NE2 was last years promotion. Lucky me I got this years $50.

    It's $100 only if your monthly bill is over $59.99 (or something like that) and your two year contract started before February 2008.

    has to do with plan you are currently on...mine was only 50 as well with the 700 minute family plan.

    Also, my best buy said only the manager could give the ne2 price match and he wasn't there when I walked in so decided to order online from Verizon instead.

    There is no longer a NE2 $100 credit regardless of your plan. There use to be mutiple $100 on the same account for different lines. Now it is only a $50 NE2 credit for the primary. I've also seen some $30 ones as well.

    I preordered my phone at BB and they said it was going to be $199. I knew about the Verizon $99 NE2 thing. I called BB and told them about it and they are going to match it. So I will get it from BB for $99.

    Yes, Best buy will match whatever price you can get it for on the website INCLUDING the NE2 discount. If they pull up your account in eroes they can see what NE2 you are eligible for.

    If your 2-year contracted started before Feb 2008, then you still have it at $100. Unfortunately my contracted started 1-2 months after that... *sigh* My NE2 was only enough to offset tax.

    I went to 2 different Best Buys and neither would honor my new every 2 upgrade of $100, and this was after one of there sales people told me last week that they would.
    I ended up ordering it with Verizon on-line.

    I wasn't aware of the Feb. 2008 date for a $100 ne2 credit. But I started my contract in June of 08 and online it says a $100 credit to be taken off if I order the Inc through verizon online. I'm wondering if I should order online, and just use the gift card for a case and screen protector. :thinking:

    I also have a $100 NE2. The guy at BB told me the same thing about price matching, but we'll see what happens when I actually get there.
