    I Just went yesterday and ordered it at my local corp store. They gave me an instant $50 off for being VIP and told me the additional $50 Mail-In-Rebate will be in the box when I receive my phone.(Which will unfortunately be after the 15th, when it ships out.)

    I was first in line at my store on Friday, got a storm and my rep gave me the instant rebate because I'm a school employee. NO idea why, but I was happy.

    Picked mine up in a BestBuy and they gave me the discount instantly. Actually, BestBuy advertised the phone here in the DC area as $199.99, so I didn't have to ask for it.

    I didn't get a instant rebate, even though I know my company receives 18% discount on the plans... I think the sales rep spelled my company email name wrong.

    Got instant rebate because I work for a company that has deals worked out with them. Even though it was personal phone.

    When I was in the store, the girl said she accidentally pressed the wrong button and added the discount to my order, so I didn't have to send it in lol

    I got the instant rebate at the vzw store, but have no idea why. I wasn't about to quiz them on it!!! lol

    I had the pre-holiday early upgrade flyer, so maybe that had something to do with it.

    I was able to get it instantly over the phone on Friday. I'm also vip, but don't think that had anything to do with it. She was telling me they were doing them instantly over the phone.
