BBY GIZMOGADGET BLUE SKU: 6222900 Price $149.99 + FREE $25 GIFT CARD
PRICE MATCH W/ VZW SALE Price of $49.99 (subject to availability) SELECT RETAIL PRICE NOT 2 YR CONTRACT (Save $50)
Free Shipping
----------------
Bottom line: $24.99 After Gift Card & Price Match ($49.99+tax shipped + $25 eGift emailed)


Shopping for the Gizmogadget today I scored a Slickdeal:

Verizon is selling the Gizmogadget for $50 off of retail plus $25 additional savings w/ smartphone purchase (not so fast that's not the Slickdeal)

For some reason Verizon was unable sell me the Gizmo Gadget without upgrading or adding a line. After establishing with the chat representative that regardless of what restrictions Verizon tried to impose on me, this device was infact unlocked and could be activated on whatever line I wanted it to be on.

Then I went to BestBuy and saw the ridiculous $149 price which is way more than retail suggests if savings at Verizon is only $50 w/ $49.99 sale price, but I digress. Best Buys offer was 149.99 plus $25 gift card.

I went with the blue one, added it to my cart, located the SKU number and began chatting with an agent. The agent was able to validate and honor the price match with the gift card intact. Shipping was free however it won't be here till the 28th (bummer), the gift card is supposed to be for email delivery. Just over $53 including tax and shipping, $24.99 before tax after you include value of the gift card. Most Price matches are YMMV! I'm going to say the Steelers online only because there were no available stock in my area in store. After confirming the price match the agent sent me a secure link to finish the transaction then tell me check back in when I was finished so that they could go ahead and submit the order with the adjustment intact. NOTE: YOU WILL NOT BE PROMPTED TO ADD A PLAN OR UPGRADE A LINE ON BESTBUY.COM, DEVICE IS UNLOCKED.

That's a pretty good deal on these. I've got three of them for my kids and we're been pretty happy with them.

Do you need to pay an extra $5/month per GizmoGadget ($15) to make it work?

Can you insert a different sim card? (E.g. ATT, T-MOBILE)

1) what's Verizon's line/usage fee for these devices? (Assuming one has a data-bucket v family plan)


2) Can these be used with a different (cheaper, prepay, or pay-as-you-go) service?


*Looks like they can't be added to the old Verizon Nationwide plan.

I understand that you wanted to request for a price match with Verizon Wireless for the
19-Jul 08:40 PM
GizmoGadget and still get the $25 gift card with Best Buy, correct?
19-Jul 08:41 PM
Yes, both sites have a $25 GC w/ purchase.
19-Jul 08:41 PM
I am sorry but we cannot allow that because it is clearly stated in our price match guarantee that does not include free items.
19-Jul 08:42 PM
This includes free gift cards even if the competitor offers the same.
