Amazon cuts Verizon's Samsung Galaxy S III to $139.99 for new customers or $149.99 for upgrades
The Samsung Galaxy S III has sold more than 20 million units in only 100 days. That's good news, and it's also bad news. The bad news is that just about anyone who wants the device has already bought it. Those left are probably waiting for the Apple iPhone 5. Perhaps sensing that, Amazon has realized that there might be a way to squeeze some more sales out of the phone yet. So the online retailer sharpened up its price cutting axe and lowered it upon the price tag of the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy S III.

The new price for Big Red's version of the device at Amazon is $139.99. That's a whopping $60 off the $199.99 price of the phone at Verizon. To get this price, you need to activate a new line and sign a two-year contract. For those who are already Verizon customers and wish to upgrade, the Samsung Galaxy S III will cost $10 more or $149.99 with a new two-year pact. That deal saves existing customers $50 which is still a substantial savings.

Amazon's deal is for a limited time only, so if you've already decided on the Samsung Galaxy S III as your phone and Verizon as your carrier, you might want to take advantage of the deal before it goes away.

That's normal for android devices. They always get a fairly quick price drop.

Well, part of that is because other websites can sell the product. It is no big deal as I purchased my DROID RAZR for a penny last November when it was still 299.99. I am glad the price drops as I would hate to spend 199.99 on something that is outdated when it first hits the shelves (not referring to Samsung or Moto here...lol).

BTW, when I say I would hate to spend 199.99 on something that is outdated when it hits the shelves, I was speaking of the iphone.

Price drops are normal so not sure why this is said to be "BAD NEWS" for those who already bought it.

dont amazon allways do this ie undercut everyone,,,dont think this is news really unless verizon themselves actually drop the price...you writing as if once the iphone 5 comes out no one will want an s3 or any other phone...you do know people who want the iphone 5 will wait however long lol even if there is no iphone 5 next week the people who want an iphone 5 will wait regardless if it comes out next week,next month or next year..whos to say that when the iphone is announced and is not that big of a jump, they dont buy the s3 instead..as always there will be 20+ million apple loyalist who buy ONLY apple will buy the iphone 5 regardless but then there will be the other millions who are not blinded by ''brand loyalty'' that will get an s3 or a one x etc...just hate it when people try to say that once the iphone is out no one would want any other phone

yes, amazon normally does undercut, as does Walmart. The iphone 4GS (which will be the name of the new iphone) should sell for only 99.99, because that is all it is worth.

That's your opinion, ijs! Btw, what the hell does the iPhone have to do with this discussion? Very weird.

I'm slighting android but I'm typing on a one x. I tell ya, android and their loyalists never cease to amaze me. Don't be butt hurt because android devices don't hold retail value because of over saturation. You should be happy because of cheaper flagship devices.
