    So, I can get $50 credit for accessories at a Verizon store, OR the special deal via Costco.

    I have been trying to figure out which deal is better. for the $50 I am pretty sure I could get a car dock and the car charger which is all I really need... I also get VIP pricing, 20% off of the accessories.

    So, thoughts? Which is the better deal cost wise?

    Don't forget tax. :D I think that's all I can say about that. I don't think anyone can beat costco's deal, right now...if you're a member.

    I am a member...

    I just don't know how useful the car dock will be without the charger...

    I am trying to figure out the same thing. I have the $50 discount and the 20% discount also. I would use docking station, not the car dock, and maybe the extra battery. Does anyone know if the bionic uses the same car charger as the og droid, if so I think I am heading to Verizon.

    According to Yankee, all phones come with a car charger and a leather case, too. So, I think that pretty much makes up your mind, eh?

    I've got the same corp discount as well, and the $50 discount - and you can bet your _____ I'm going to CostCo instead.

    Oooo, if this is the case then I probably will.

    Granted I imagine the car charger is the same as the OG Droid so I could always use that one.

    The car mount plugs into the bottom, of the phone, so is probably form-fitted for the Bionic.


    Notice the hump at the bottom. I'd get an official one, unless of course the OG Droid one is big enough and doesn't slip. Money is money.

    But I'll be getting it in a pack from Costco! :p

    I'll be getting this one with the Costco deal. But I'm hoping this car dock is better than the one I bought from Verizon for the OG Droid. The quality was lackluster at best.

    Quick note. He said car charger not car mount. :D

    These should be Motorola built. That means good!

    This is correct. All phones you purchase at Costco will come with a leather carrying case and car charger. The third is variable on the particular phone. Lately it's been screen protectors with touchscreen phones. You'll get that in addition to the bundle.

    I know of at least two times Costco has done a similar deal. First with our beloved OG Droids, the second with last year's Samsung Fascinate (Galaxy S). Both times the accessories were OEM.

    What's the $50 credit for accessories or are you just referring to the NE2?
