Leaked internal pricing guides for Costco indicates December 15th release for Verizon's Galaxy Nexus
Yet again, the plot continues to thicken for the Verizon branded Samsung Galaxy Nexus, as we’ve all been waiting dearly to hear some sort of official confirmation regarding the smartphone’s inevitable release. However, the latest leak seemingly confirms one particular date that we’re all very familiar with by now.

This time, the leak comes from Costco, as its internal pricing guides indicate that December 15th is in fact, the long awaited release date for Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus. Additionally, the pricing shown in this round of leaks is none other than $289.99 with a signed 2-year agreement, which actually provides credibility to the previous rumors we’ve heard.

Knees are shaking no doubt, especially with all of this anticipation surrounding it, but it’s still worth noting that Costco is an authorized retailer for Verizon – meaning, that date of December 15th might vary from what Verizon’s corporate stores will go with.

Only a mere two days away, we’ll surely know for sure if all of this will actually come to fruition. Long time coming, right?

I got the Bionic from Costco and I know they have some 90 day thing, can I return it for this?

It doesn't hurt to try...if the 90 return policy includes cell phones, u should be okay...or if u find a sales rep willing to "hook u up"...

yes it does work i did it with my charge. the thing is.... the rep at the cellphone counter will tell u different but all u have to do is complain to customer service ( where u get your membership) and they will force them at the cellphone counter to return it because everything in Costco is covered under the 90 day return. except food of course lol.. but it works

I still cant see paying $300 for a phone. I only paid $100 each for my Bionics. I had to fight with Verizon and threaten them that I was going to cancel my account but they finally gave in. :)

I would never sell a phone that far discounted to someone like you, or anyone for that matter. I'll even give you every manager's number if I had to and you can take it up with them. You're no more deserving than anyone else interested in the device...
