Besides the fact that you can go pay $299.99 at your local Verizon store to pick up your shiny new Samsung Galaxy Nexus today, there are some pretty amazing deals to be had from the third party online retailers. Here is a breakdown of the good deals on individual contracts.
  • Wirefly has the VZW Galaxy Nexus for $189.99 on a new contract, or $239.99 for a renewal contract
  • Amazon has the VZW Galaxy Nexus for $199.99 on a new contract, or $249.99 for a renewal contract
  • LetsTalk has the VZW Galaxy Nexus for $154.99 on a new contract, or just $174.99 for a renewal contract (requires you to use the coupon code $75VZN at the checkout - otherwise $230 new contract and $250 renewal without code - this one is already back-ordered - also... some folks are having a hard time finding an option to keep their existing contract terms, ala unlimited data, and may end up with a tiered plan if not careful)

As you can see from these deals, the third party retailers are getting pretty aggressive with their pricing to entice customer away from the Verizon store. The LetsTalk deal is the best over-all, although its annoying it is already back-ordered, and that folks are having trouble keeping their existing grandfathered unlimited plans (supposedly, LetsTalk claims there is a way to keep it during the process). If you want to jump on any of these deals, here are some source links below.
