HTC Droid Incredible goes BOGO on Verizon, Amazon still has it for less

HTC Droid Incredible goes BOGO on Verizon, Amazon still has it for less
Verizon got our attention today with a buy-one-get-one-free offer for the HTC Droid Incredible. The phone still sells for $199.99, but you get another one for that price, after shelling out $299.99 first, and getting a $100 mail-in rebate afterwards. Both phones have to be on a two-year contract, with at least $29.99 data plan.

It's a decent offer for an Android handset, running 1GHz Snapdragon and boasting an 8MP camera with dual-LED flash, but a peak at its Amazon page brought down the price to $39.99 on a two-year contract. Now, that's more like it, but considering that for the same money you can now get the Samsung Fascinate on Amazon, we doubt the BOGO campaign will lure anybody who has done their homework before buying.

When really good phones get priced like this it makes me wonder how much these phones actually cost to produce.

I am sure they are taking a loss when it comes to bogo cause they will make it back on the $350 Term fee. But isn't this news a little late? Hasn't it been this price for almost two weeks now and it's just being reported? I thought the price changed to bogo on October 4th.

Yes, such a great deal. By doing your homework you will see that the phone "usually" ships between 1-2 months. Not to mention the $39.99 price is only for NEW Verizon wireless customers. So in the end Amazons deal looks better from the outside, but once you dig in it's not that great.

Amazon has much lower overhead, and can reach a broader worldwide group of people, than an actual retail outlet or store. less overhead+more customers = less money they can charge and pull a profit. if you are already know phones, awesome place to shop. if your like 99% of the people out there...not so smart. Example: "daddy i want a kin phone!" "sure son, now get out of the room and remember daddy was not hurting mommy"
