So after looking around and finding nothing cheaper than $220 for the replacement screen on GoUnlock.com, I registered for an account on Samsung.com, called up Samsung Mobile Support (+1-888-987-4357) and after talking to a decent fellow (who happened to be an HTC EVO 3D owner, which is his first true smartphone ever, but he really does want the Galaxy Nexus when it comes out on Sprint), I was able to set up a repair order, and the repair cost would amount to a total of $163.46.
Since my phone is still under warranty, and due to the fact that the Galaxy Nexus is a priority support phone for Samsung, the turnaround time provided is the fastest they offer; The turnaround time will be 2-days UPS shipping to Plano, TX; 2-days for repair; and 2-days UPS shipping to return to me.
Samsung informed me that during this time, unfortunately they could not provide me with a loaner phone, that I should check with Verizon to see if they could loan me one in the meantime. I contacted Verizon, and since they were not going to be able to repair my phone as it wasn't insured, they would also not be able to provide me with a loaner phone, but otherwise would have if I had gone through their repair process (which I wasn't eligible for).
Guess I'm going to have to dig out my Sprint Nexus S 4G and use it as a WiFi-only phone (using GrooveIP) during this time. Fortunately I won't be without mobile data as I also usually have my Xoom 4G with me. Gads, I'd probably die otherwise.
@s1977 - That guy never responded and I could not find any solid source of information confirming that the I9250 screen is compatible with the I515 Galaxy Nexus. Thanks for looking though!
@cmdub - Admittedly I contacted Samsung as a second-to-last resort, but you were spot on. Thanks!
@frogskins - My thinking was initially with what you posted, I am surprised and pleased that Samsung accepted my repair.
@McDizzle - The guy probably wouldn't have dropped it if I hadn't grabbed at his vest as he was trying to get away from me. Although the screen cracked, it's still a small victory over losing the phone completely.
