    Let me know if it works.. I'll let you know too.

    I may not have the patience too but I can be stubborn!

    Anyways the shipping and online activation discount is already gone so I would probably just be hurting myself.

    I figured this would be the case ... will the code work on anything on the site such as accessories or is it just for pre-ordering the Incredible so those of us whose orders are already processed and/or delivered are SOL?

    Thank you so much for posting that promo code...it worked for me and I paid a total of 129.00 (including tax). They took it and it was applied in addition to my NE2. Good work!

    Yeah, it took 2 calls. 1st CSR said they wanted me to fax over the "email" that I said I got the code from. After hanging up, the 2nd CSR had no problems crediting me $30 to my next bill.

    Basically I said "I saw this code show up online on a forum. I can pre-order again today and still get it by the 29th with $30 off and then return ship the first pre-order from the 19th (on their dime), OR I was hoping someone could save me the trouble and just take it off my bill using a different code."

    Awesome, thanks for the code! I'll cancel my BestBuy order tonight and will save $60 on the two Incredibles I ordered.

    Is the tax on the $529, if your state has tax?

    In California, sales tax is calculated on the full retail price of the device, not the discounted price you pay. In Nevada, sales tax is calculated on the inventory cost of the device.

    Outside of those two states, sales tax should be calculated off of the discounted price of the device.

    Do you have your phone yet? I'm wondering if I have to wait for it to arrive or if I can call now to get the credit?

    I'm going to use that $$ to buy the red/black fade case.

    It took me 2 calls to CS but they applied a $30 credit to my billing account since I paid for the Inc with my credit card. Beautiful tip, OP. Bravo.

    Anyone know if there's a certain link that shows that there is a coupon code for $30 off? I talked with a person at Best Buy and they said that if you bring in proof that there is one on paper, then they could see what they could do to use that coupon.

    I just got off the phone with Verizon. I explained that after preordering my phone, I now have a code that would apply a $30.00 discount. I didn't have any problems getting what I wanted .. I didn't even have to say what the code word was. Once I receive my phone tomorrow I have to activate it and agree to the terms before I can have the credit applied. The CSR that I spoke with will check my account tomorrow and send me a text message that the credit is applied. Pretty sweet deal, thanks for posting this OP!

    The code doesn't want to work for me on a 2 year upgrade. Do you have to be the primary line for the discount?

    It says "Criteria for ***** promotion were not met; no discount was applied." when I try to add it.

    Pre-ordered the phone with 2 year contract, but a week before NE2. Called today, asked about NE2 discount which was not applied, and was told will get $50 credit in next billing cycle. Couldn't swing the SMART30 on top of that but I don't care - I get the NE2 discount and the phone a week early.

    I'm the primary line on a 2-line family plan account and the $30 promo worked on both lines, for a total savings of $60.

    I am on the phone with them now. I also have FIOS at home, so when I call I get routed to One-Bill customer service. After speaking with her, I'd recommend if you also have FIOS at home to call regular customer service instead. She didn't seem to know what I was talking about (semi-understandable, since she works in a kind of limbo between wireless and FIOS) and I had to ask to be transferred.

    Edit: After speaking with a regular CSR, she can't change my pending order (as everyone's saying) but she said she'd put a note on my account to credit me the $30 and if I call back once I've activated my Inc., the next rep can go ahead and apply a $30 credit to my acct.

    I have to call back after activation anyway to get them to tweak my plan, so I don't mind the extra phone call.

    Hello everyone! First time poster....

    I also got the criteria not met message at checkout.

    I'm wondering if this promo code is only valid for first time smart phone subscribers.....
