$290 Galaxy Nexus Deal at Costco to Include Extra Acessories
The Galaxy Nexus release date may be pushed back to December 13th, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get something for your wait.
Costco is doing all it can to offer members a great deal on the Galaxy Nexus for Verizon. The wholesale retailer has reportedly shaved the price of the Galaxy Nexus down to $290 — $10 less than Verizon will reportedly sell the Galaxy Nexus for, with a two-year contract.

The big news here is that the Costco is also adding a Member Bonus Accessory pack to the deal, much like they did with the Droid Bionic.
It’s not clear if the Galaxy Nexus Accessory Bundle will be as good as the one that was bundled with the Bionic. Rumor has it that the bundle includes the following accessories.
- Home charger
- Car charger
- Screen protectors
- Galaxy Nexus Case
We would have hoped that it included some type of car dock, office dock and an extra battery. There’s still a possibility that it will include something special, but if that’s all Costco has in store, there’s no reason to join just to get this deal.
The Galaxy Nexus release date on Verizon was rumored for this Friday December 9th, but the 4G LTE outage appears to put the brakes on this plan. The new date we have pegged for a Galaxy Nexus launch is December 13th.
Are you getting the Galaxy Nexus on Verizon? Or are you giving up and waiting to see what new Android phones are announced at CES 2012 in 30 days?

I’m getting the Nexus from Verizon. I can’t get to a store until the afternoon of the 13th so I’m sure Costco will be sold out of that bundle quickly like they were for the Bionic bundle.
I saw the Bionic last year at CES and waited for it come out until I got to August and heard about the Nexus and have waited for it so I’m not waiting anymore. I’m sure there will be a whole new breed of awesome phones at CES this year but I’m not going through that again. If I don’t like the Nexus, I will probably get an iPhone 5 when it comes out next year as long as it has a 4″ screen and is 4g LTE.

Very much agreed on all your points. Getting a Nexus now but I might be in for a fully redesigned iPhone 5 with better software + bigger screen + LTE.

Only bad thing is that Costco has switched to a mail-order-rebate type deal for the accessories, you no longer get them when you buy the phone. My friend bought the Razr on day one 11/11/1, they did this to him, he had to mail in the rebate form and is still waiting to get his accessories. Bummer!

The Costco bundle is not good enough for me. I’d rather get the phone from Amazon Wireless without these accessories for $250 (for existing Verizon customers). But I’m going to wait for a better deal.
