Verizon offers BOGO for DROID and DROID ERIS
According to the Phandroid web site, one of the guys there got a call from Verizon to tell him about a BOGO deal that the corporate stores are offering on the DROID and DROID ERIS. And the beauty of the deal is, since it runs from Friday through Monday, those who bought on launch date will have until Friday to pick up the free Android device since it will be within 30 days of the original purchase. The catch? You have to open a brand new line for the second device. If you have a line that is out of contract you can cancel it and open a new one. Or, you can just open another line. Either way, you will have to sign for another 2 year contract. Overall, it is a great deal if you needed another line anyway. And for Verizon, it's a great way to jack up sales totals before the end of the quarter. Imagine, two DROIDS for the price of one. That deal isn't even offered on Tattoine.

hmm I hope they find who leaked this because people tend to take these rumors as bible, and make sales rep lives a living hell.

Anyone who runs in these circles should know that sales reps tend to know nothing about phones/promotions/etc even after they've been announced.

Also, the free 5500 or Glance has been an ongoing promotion for several months now. You fail.

Hey VZWMan, this is leaked information. Therefore, it won't be on the vzw website because the promotion is not in affect yet. So before you start accusing people of misleading information, learn to read the article.

I smell a Dragon in the works if they are looking to drain their inventory of android phones that quickly. Maybe Moto had a Part in this because they wanted 1 million units sold before the end of the year. Either way this is a smoking deal.... Tempting, but I would rather have the HD2 or the Dragon/Passion.

I agree. Everyday I hope to hear news about the htc passion release date.

It would surprise me... You would think more info would be out about the Dragon/passion by now if it were to be released this year. Maybe early 2010? The Dragon sounds sweet with the 1gh processor and 4" screen. The only thing I worry about is batt life on it given the processor and large screen.
