    is every existing VZ customer seeing it at this price?

    I ask because I'm up for my new-every-two on the 28th and wonder if there will be an additional $50 off at that time.

    Are you receiving a discount through your employer or anything?

    I get an automatic discount on all purchases (service or hardware/accessories) through my work email, so the phone shows up discounted when I look at it.

    I am currently "eligible for an upgrade" and it shows for me at $250. When I talked to a CSR earlier in the week, he said when my NE2 thing hits (April, for me) there would be an additional $50 off.

    I also have a work discount.. but I think that's only on my monthly bill.

    Yup, I bet that's it. I get a university discount so on the 28th I'll get another $50 off, anything around $200 will be cool with me.

    yea mine came up as 250$ online as well; didn't exactly know why either so i ended up ordering online instead of at the store.

    asked for rushed shipping so hopefully i have it tomorrow night after work!

    If you have an employer discount this should apply. When I bought my Thunderbolt I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was $50 off as well. The sales woman told me this was because of some changes to things that could no longer be discounted, and Verizon had decided to apply employer discounts to new phone purchases.

    I paid 230$ for a thunderbolt on a 1 year contract due to a corporate discount. A VZW CSR is saying that corporate discounts don't apply to the Nexus?

    I just called and the corporate discount and the new-every-two discounts do apply, but after 2011 the new-every-two discount will be no more, so this is my last $50 discount. I also tried to see if they would give me the new-every-two discount today, and she tried, but she said I'd have to wait until the 28th. :( She did offer to give me a $30 credit if I did it today but I'm cheap and didn't want to lose the additional $20.

    I received $50 off because of an employer discount today. Pretty nice to get that since I was planning on paying the full $300. I left the store in a very good mood since I got my Nexus for less than I had planned paying.
