Sears offering $50 discount to buy DROID

Sears offering $50 discount to buy DROID
Just in case you don't feel like shelling out $300 for the Motorola DROID and then waiting a few weeks for your $100 debit card, Sears is giving buyers of the first Android 2.0 phone an instant discount. The retailer is taking $100 off the top, plus an additional $50 off for new Verizon customers signing a 2 year contract. That works out to a price of $149.99, just like it says on the ad. Sears might not come to mind right away as a place to pick up the hottest handset on the planet, but at this price, it might be the place you wallet will take you to buy the device.

1st, It's "since" and not sense. 2nd, Sears has been selling cellphones "since" the late 90's. 3rd, Obviously you care "since" you bothered to post a reply! 4th, I hope that made "sense" to you....

Actually the way he used it in his sentence was as an adverb (Which is rare I know), But he can use it that way. The word: "Sense" as an Adverb means = "In some respects" But we all knew he meant to type: Since. Just throwing that out... "Since/Sense" your both right. (Another use of Sense as an Adverb. lol)

Nothing like checking out phonearena and getting a little english 101 in.

First, Great response to #1. Thank you. Second, Sears actually started selling mobile phones about 1989. I bought my first one from them at a store in Kansas City sometime in late '89. It was a Motorola Bag phone - big sucker with a battery that was bigger than any 3 phones out on the market today.

@ sinfulta, I just wanted to say that you are still wrong. You are right in selective cases, but not here. I also wanted to say @ cj, that was funny. No offense vzwman, but "boom roasted!!!"

What I find humorous is that the Ad mentions a VZ Navigator demo which is not available on the Droid. And then second I find it funny that the Droid currently has a minimum advertised price policy in place limiting it to $199.99.....So i question the validity of this post. DROID FTW

So they are trying to be the price leader in the Droid oligopoly?

Its by Motorola. Wait a week and they'll pay you $50 to take it off their hands.

I bought the droid for 254(taxes included CA) out the door and after seeing this I went back to bestbuy and they did a price adjustment thanks to sears and phonearena. Yo fair&balanced, quit being a fag, the droid is awesome...superior to any phone out there right now.

Such a large degree of hostility. You must realize you wasted a large amount of money and feel everyone is laughing at you. We do sympathize. You are not the first person to be a fool.... just perhaps the most introspective to generate such self deprecating anger...

hahaha...wasted a large amount of money, please!! this great phone was only$ 204 (taxes included) is that expensive? Perhaps for you. It's not anger, it's just that I find extremely stupid that you speak bad about this phone when you don't own it. You know nothing about it. Just because Motorola is the manufacturer does not make it a crummy unit. Motorola has the right to come back from the dead just as any other manufacturer does and they did a great job with this phone. No one is laughing...the phone has great reviews. CNET has it tied with the 3GS at 4 stars, total overall rating of 8.3. Phonearena has it at 8.5 with a user rating of 9.2. You are just a fool spitting nonsense because you find this phone expensive and more than likely cannot afford to join VZW, and if you already are a VZW customer, you will get this phone sooner or later.
