    Anybody else know about this??? It's the first i have heard of it.
    I have run across some customers accounts who are eligible for a so called "Private Sale", and that's what she is offering you.

    That must have been what I got, except my rep was able to go through the whole process and place the order, even stating that it would arrive by Thurs. Now its possible it may not really ship until Thurs, but then again perhaps it was not locked down early yesterday when I called.

    I've been off contract since January.
    I went through the online ordering process just to make sure everything was ready. My line says it is available for upgrade "with discount". When I got to the phone selection, several models were $50 cheaper. None of the iPhones, but the Samsung Charge went from $299 to $249, and the experia went from $199 to $149. Some blackberries, too.

    Anyway, I'm hoping to get the Trophy for $100. This gives me more hope that I will. Sweet!

    you still get your last new every two credits, which is probably what is showing up as a $50 discount.

    after this one though, you get no more since the program was ended. (thanks verizon! all these discounts and contract options were too complicated for my feeble consumer brain!)

    @adiliyo I was gonna say thanks for taking a whiz in my cereal regarding the Trophy, but after the last couple posts concerning additional discounts when renewing prompted me to check my account as well. Tomorrow morning can't get here soon enough!

    Yea i just looked at this as well... Must be related. Sounds good to me to get an additional $50 off the phone.... I just want the trophy to hold me over untill Verizon, ( very hopefully ) gets a Nokia phone in 2012. I think the Nokia phones are what everyone is going to want.

    I got the text yesterday. A Thunderbolt with a $50 private sale discount and a $50 customer loyalty discount.

    Which is all kind of "meh." I have a NE2 coming to me anyway, so $50 of that is them offering me something I'm already entitled to. And Amazon will sell me a Thunderbold for $130, which is $20 cheaper than Verizon is offering me after these discounts.


    Hard to get excited when something you already have is being presented as new and a fantastic deal is actually worse than you can find from a 3rd party.

    I'm actually surprised the phone doesn't cost lower with all the upgrade/NE2 discounts plus the rebate. I went online into my already upgrade-eligible account, and clicked on 'Upgrade' to buy a new phone. I looked at all the Crapdroids, especially the so-called "Incredible", which has the same price as the Trophy before rebate. The upgrade price for that phone is $100 where it is normally $200 for new customers. So wouldn't the Trophy also be $100 for an upgrade price, PLUS the $50 mail-in rebate, for a final price of FIFTY DOLLARS???

    Smartphones use to get a $100 upgrade discount and feature phones got a $50 so that's the difference

    yea, my last NE2 was a $100 credit i used on a Droid X, got it for $100

    so if you have a smartphone right now, your NE2 credit should get you a trophy for $50 after MIR and plus tax.

    I just called Verizon and they were able to order me the phone Today, but it would be 2 day air. I decined because I am going out of town for the summer starting Friday morning, so I am going to have to wait until I get to my destination before I order it.

    She confirmed it was 199.99 plus the mail in rebate, but she said she didn't know anything or see anything about the xbox game offer.

    Call now and order yours and you'll get it by Friday.

    She said no, but then again, she didn't even know about the Trophy at all or any offer that went with it.

    Thanks, Coolduderedux.

    I'm tempted to call them, but I read somewhere here that you'll get the instant rebate if you order online. What are the chances of that happening?

    A Verizon employee on their forums listed the price as $429.99.

    Chances of that are fairly good actually..."Usually" thats how VZW operates, instant rebate on line, MIR in store.

    I called the (800)256-4646 and asked about the trophy she said it comes out tomorrow and then she said she might be able to order today. I used another line's update with a ne2 50 and so after the mail in rebate it'll be 99 bucks
