Like you "dcpuser" I also lucked out pretty good!
Well, at first I waited in line at a store and that just took too long and I had to get to work so I had to bail. I was pretty pissed. I contacted a guy here on the forums (was very helpful) that works at a VZW store and he ordered mine along with my "New Every 2" plan along with the INSTANT rebate of $50 (normally mail-in-rebate in a form of a debit card). In total I paid $99 plus tax. Not too shaby.
