I've been searching around and comparing sales prices for the 8X, and finally took the opportunity to buy one yesterday. Let's Talk (Cell Phones for free with Cell Phone Plans from Verizon Wireless, T-Mobile, Sprint, and more) is currently selling them to new customers and upgrades for just $39.99. Combined with a 10% coupon for the site that is searchable online, it becomes a really great deal.

Wow, what a fricken load of crap. I pre-order, pay double, and have it delivered 2 weeks after I could have bought it in the store. I will wait the obligatory month next time. Guess it took me 15 years to finally learn Vzw tactics, shame on me!

Don't worry, take your recites to a Verizon store and you will be reimbursed the difference. I payed 199 in November and went today and got a instant credit to my card of 50 and a rebate slip for 50 more.

I work at one of their corporate stores. Corporate stores do not price match, maybe indirect agents do.
There is a price protection policy that we honor but only for a month after purchase I belive.
The 8x is currently reduced to $99 after a $50 mail in rebate. The nokia lumia 822 is currently free at vzw stores as well.

My pre-order shipped on 11/23 and I received it on 11/27. EXACTLY one month from today. What are the odds of getting any amount of reimbursement on this $100 difference??
Correction - I received it on the 21st, it was the wireless charger that I received on the 27th...

Well, Verizon has no love for me. I was told the policy is 7 days, my phone was activated on Nov 21st, I'm SOL. I sure love Verizon's product, but every time I need to deal with them from a customer service perspective it is so frustrating that I almost get depressed. I wasn't happy to see $40 worth of taxes on a $350 early termination fee on this months bill either. The early termination fee being the result of parents not wanting to pay an extra $30/mo for a phone they never use and only have for safety when traveling. Price increase due to being forced to a shared plan. Talk about insult to injury. Verizon is just so inflexible, I guess because they don't give their customer service reps any autonomy to make decisions. Live an learn, I won't be so anxious to jump on a new phone next time...
Not to take away from this thread, because in my opinion $99 for an HTC 8x from Verizon direct is a great deal! Just wished I'd have gotten it!!

I would also haggle with the early termination fee if you stayed in verizon
