Just before you go and jump into a HTC Thunderbolt contract with Verizon for $249.99, you need to hold it right there. Amazon has stepped up and stole Verizon and Best Buy’s thunder by severely undercutting both retailers with an unbeatable contract price for the handset.
Instead of $249.99 for the device, you can pick one up from Amazon online for just $179.99, the same 2-year contract deal that both Verizon and Best Buy are offering. If you’re interested you better order straight away, as we doubt the ‘in stock’ status message on Amazon’s product listing will stay that way in the next 24 hours.
Amazon are no strangers to undercutting other retailers in the past, but even we didn’t expect them to pull a move like this for the HTC Thunderbolt. Obviously, we’re not complaining but we doubt Best Buy will be too happy about this. They may even drop their prices too now or introduce an extra incentive like in-store credit to try and tempt customers back into their Thunderbolt deal.
If you do manage to buy one online from Amazon, let us know how the process went for you, and how happy you are saving all of those extra dollars. Way to go Amazon.
