Default HTC One M8 at Amazon Wireless - $100 w/contract

Hey everyone - not sure if this is well-known or not (or if this type of thread is appropriate in this section), but Amazon wireless is selling the HTC One M8 (both colors) for Verizon for both new lines and eligible upgrades for $100 with a new contract.

This was a surprise to me (it was $200 direct from VZW) - and their customer service was fantastic. I couldn't find a next day shipping option on the page, but I ended up chatting with their customer care, and they connected me (via phone) to their wireless team, and they intercepted my order and upgrade me to one-day shipping at no charge. (I am a prime member so that may have helped).

Just thought I would share...

Once a phone has been out for a month or two, Amazon is almost always a better buy.
A cigar is man's opportunity to reflect on the past, and dream about the future.

Got it...

It was my first experience ordering a phone from Amazon. My last couple of phones have been purchased at the VZW stores on launch day (Galaxy Nexus and then the Note 2). I guess it "pays" to wait a couple months before buying!

Just recently vzw had a deal where you got $100 off any smartphone costing $199 or more, so I got my M8 through Verizon directly for $99. Not sure if that's still going on or not. Either way, Amazon is pretty much a better deal for almost any purchase you make, haha. Phone or not

How are you keeping unlimited data when buying a phone on a 2-year contract?

Transferred my upgrade to another line, activated then deactivated and put the phone on my line

Ah. Got it. The unlimited data ship sailed for me when my wife added her mom to our plan. :-|
