I figured I'd go to our local store at 11AM and try my luck (I refuse to wait in line for "stuff". If i get it I get it, if not oh well). I get there at 10:59 and there were 3 people in line. From what I can tell only 1 of them wanted a Tour so I was the 2nd person.
Now I got a Storm a few months ago and used up my ne2 so I was fully prepared to pay full retail for it. When the guy pulled up my account he said "Yeah there is a slight problem. You are not eligible for the discount price" and I told him that's fine I'll pay full retail. He said "I'll be right back" and disappeared in the back. He comes out, goes to the manager and askes something, and came back and told me he'll give me the 2 yr contract price ($199). I was like "Come again?" and he said he can cut me a deal. I asked him about it later and basically he said each store as the discretion to give people breaks like that. 20 minutes later I walked out the store with my new Tour.
I don't know if this matters. I've been on VZW since 2001 and I've got a 17% corp discount.
So basically I got a Storm in Feb/March at their special sales price, and I got my Tour at the 2yr contract price too. My contract date resets again starting today but I'm not complaining
This is at a NorCal store not too far south of San Francisco. The CSR said they have abotu 40 in stock
