Verizon ending BlackBerry BOGO promotion?

Verizon ending BlackBerry BOGO promotion?
Verizon has ended its BOGO promotion for BlackBerry devices, according to some BGR tipsters. Big Red is replacing the promotion with a $50 price discount on the BlackBerry Storm and the BlackBerry Curve. That would bring the price of the first touchscreen BlackBerry down to $99.99 including a $70 online discount. Can you think of any other touchscreen device that recently was reduced in price to $99?

Because Verizon could not change or cancel all of the ads in place for the old promotion, the nation's largest cellular carrier is expected to honor the old promotion through June 27th.

Um, sir, I have to disagree with you. I thoroughly enjoyed that BOGO, and I am sad. Although I knew this day was coming. (I'm sure as a tech though you must be extremely excited, LOL!)

uh, it would actually be $150 after a $70 MIR for the Storm. Think, edit, possibly read before you post. That'd probably be wise.

Hey slappy, you might want to read and edit information yourself. Prior to this change, the price of the Storm was $199.99 without a rebate. The price is now 219.99 and has a $70 MIR, bringing it to $149.99. Add in the $50 discount and that brings it to $99.99.

They waited till the phone got better to lower the price? Sometimes I don't understand VZDub. :|

That $70.00 is an online discount not a mail in rebate. Big difference. I think you to need to read the entire article yourself.

THe phone was 199.99 after all discounts. The price has been dropped to 149.99 after all discounts/rebates. 199.99(reg 2 year Price) - 50.00( Discount) = 149.99. O r you check verizon website before telling someone they are wrong when really your the one who is wron.

Are you retarded read the freaking article before you post you moron. Go to the website $219.00 before any discount $70.00 instant online discount. Bringing it to 149.00. Then a $50.00 additional discount since they arent doing the bogo anymore. Bringing the total price to $99.99. So why dont you go on the website like I did before I posted and make some actual sense.

technically it is 219.99 before mail in rebate/online discount. The 50.00 dollar discount is off of the regular price which was 199.99. 199.99-50.00= 149.99...They did not drop the phone price 50.00 just to give you an additional 50.00 dollars off.

Did you read the article? 219.00 online for the phone $70.00 instant online discount. Also a $50.00 discount in replacement of the bogo offer. Whats $70.00 + $50.00? That equals $120.00. Now take $219.00 - $120.00. What do you get? $99.99 So I dont know where your getting your facts from but they dont seem to be right.

If customers still have their mailer that states the bogo offer, they can still redeem it until June 27th. not sure about those in other areas, but our district manager said that if a customer comes in asking about the bogo offer, we will still give it to them since there were some adverts that stated it was going on until the 27th.
