Verizon’s Galaxy Nexus on Sale for $50 at WireFly

Wirefly’s giving a nice break to new customers seeking Samsung’s Galaxy Nexus on Verizon. They’re offering the device to new customers for $50. Not a bad deal if you’re looking to switch to Verizon and had your eye on this one. As usual, existing customers don’t get nearly the same treatment but $150 is still a pretty nice upgrade price for a phone whose MSRP is $300. Jump to the source link to take advantage. [Wirefly]

    Why is this phone’s price being dropped everywhere except for Verizon? Frustrating.

    • Brian

      Do you feel like there’s a special benefit to buying the phone directly from Verizon?

      • DanWazz

        I’ve heard different accounts of people purchasing phones on 3rd party sites and it being hell to return it if there is an issue.I had to switch out my Incredible 4 times before I got one that worked for more than 2 months. I like to be able to walk into a store and do the return with no hassle.

        • Brian

          Fair enough, but Brick&Mortar stores require a lot more overheard costs than an online only store (obviously), hence the price & service difference.

          note: I’ve purchased my past 5 from a Verizon store :)

    Cheaper than Amazon Wireless. New Line/Account is $79.99 and existing upgrade is $229.99

    I don’t understand why they don’t give existing customers the same deal they give new customers.  Are investors and executives so myopic they don’t see the value in KEEPING customers once they’ve made the switch?

      Because, unlike us common folk, they can see that retaining customers at existing prices works. But to lure in the fresh meat, super discounting a phone one time probably hooks them for multiple contracts at the “normal” verizon price?

      Just a guess.

    • Brian

      They get a referral commission for getting new customers.

      It’s the same in any industry.

    $149 for existing customers is pretty good too.   But what’s the catch with Wirefly?  Will I be able to root and install AOKP on this?

    • Chris Jeffries

       I just got a Droid Bionic from them.  This is my 4th wirefly phone.  The only catch is if you try to cancel sooner than 6 months, you’ll owe Wirefly an etf also.  Can you root the phone?  Well, I have a Cliq XT running CM7, that I got from Wirefly.

    The price is good for upgrades as well according to their Facebook… And mobile site also is showing 49.99 for upgrades..

    • Steve Pylypchuk

      Where do you see it for $50 for upgrades?  Mobile site only shows new customers.

      Facebook says 35% price drop, not that it’s $50 for existing customers.

    Amazon has matched this price http://wireless.amazon.com/Samsung-Galaxy-Nexus-Android-Wireless/dp/B0061R2A1S/ref=sh_br_ph_1?ie=UTF8&transaction=INDIVIDUAL_NEW&sr=1-1-entd&qid=1334691876436
