    Well... it's $49.99 through Verizon. 3rd parties usually undercut carriers by $50 or more.

    I think this is a bullsh!t website. When I try to go through with purchase I get a certificate error and "mobile.cellstores.com" shows in the address bar. I was not aware Newegg even had a "wireless" subdomain site.

    It looks like it really is a Newegg deal. You can double check by going to Newegg itself, then clicking on Cell Phones then look for the 928 on Verizon. You'll end up on that wireless subdomain site....

    Weird, can't seem to access from phone. I'll try on my desktop then. I was just about to take advantage of $49.99 deal with Verizon for my girlfriend, so this would be even better!

    I changed the option to upgrade my device, added to cart and it's still showing 9.99.

    Don't you still get the $25 credit to the WP store through next week too? So aren't you technically making $ from this deal?

    Not really. 3rd party cell stores (newegg, amazon) always cut the carrier by a few dollars, sometimes more than a few.

    Yep. I think that offer still runs through the 23rd.

    Huh, of course. I just got mine on Monday for the $29.99 from Newegg. Still a good deal.

    Nice!

    I have a question, if I get one of these and it has some of the known issues with the 928, would I still be able to take it into the Verizon store for exchange? Or would I have to work with Newegg?

    Newegg has always sold phones... It's definitely legit.

    It's been reported that it was the third best selling phone at Verizon for May (I think??) behind iPhone 5 and GS4, so I think it is probably selling pretty well. Also I think the sale is to give it an extra push to hopefully overtake the GS4 for the number two spot.

    that could be true and good news, but It could also be bad news, both the gs4 and iPhone 5 are high end phones the only real other competitors are the 928 and the Droid razr, but most people who buy high end are usually gonna go for the most popular which is the gs4 and iPhone 5 so it could be like gs4 and iPhone 5 selling each 10 million while 928 selling 2 million and all others selling less...if that makes sense lol

    That's a good point, and unfortunately, likely the case :(. If it were selling really well they would not have set up a promotion like this. Although that doesn't mean that it's selling poorly...

    Makes total sense. I guess we'll just have to wait and see when more numbers come out after more time has passed! For what it's worth, the Z10 was never in the top 3.

    Also, HTC One coming to Verizon could be a road block....

    That's pretty awesome. If I hadn't just gotten an 822 less than half a year ago, or if the off-contract phone had a sale, I would love to get this phone! (and I somehow doubt that I'm the only one in this situation... haha)

    yup but hopefully the lumia 521 is selling well on HSN and tmobile because it only really seems to be going out of stock at walmart and amazon and not so much HSN and on HSN its listed as a hot device so maybe thats a good sign

    Most website sales outside of the carriers are via third party vendors with whom the website has a relationship. There is nothing questionable about it at all. It is quite legitimate even if you are not really buying directly from the company itself.
