The price from Verizon Wireless for the Droid Bionic is $299. however new customers who trade in any kind of phone can get at least a $100 gift(more if the trade-in value is higher) with the online exclusive trade-in deal while current Verizon customers can only trade-in a basic phone for the $100 gift card.
Meanwhile,online retailer Amazon is selling the Droid Bionic for $179.99 for new customers with a contract or $249.99 for renewing customers. The Droid Bionic is backordered until tomorrow September 9.
The best deal for renewing customers as of this writing is if you have any kind of basic phone to trade-in to Verizon Wireless which will bring down the price to $199, you can not trade-in a smartphone if you are currently a Verizon Wireless customer.Wirefly claims their Droid Bionic price is "special" right now with a new Verizon account but it is not as good as either the online-only trade-in deal from Verizon Wireless or Amazon for new customers. If you don't have a trade-in you're best bet is Amazon Wireless. Wirefly notes that the Droid Bionic is Verizon's first 4G LTE smartphone with a dual-core 1GHz processor and 1GB of RAM.
