DROID3 and DROIDX2 Hit Verizon’s New “Back to School” Buy One Get One Free Promo

If you have grown sick of waiting for the DROID Bionic and aren’t interested in the single-core 4G LTE offerings that Verizon has made available all year, then we thought we should point you in the direction of their 3G dual-core options that just joined a pretty hot promo.  Big Red started their “Back to School” sale this morning which is highlighted by BOGO (buy one get one free) offers for both the DROID3 and the DROIDX2.  That’s right, the phone (D3) that is technically just 4 days old, can be purchased in pairs for just $199.  You can see our first look and impressions of the device here.


Cheers QPHALO!

    is it proable to bogo if u aready bought one at a different time

  • Topsitee

    Can you do BOGO across two different accounts?

  • jcorf

    Is it possible to get Bogo on 2 Droid3 for separate accounts?

  • I got a Droid X2 on Saturday and I got my girlfriend a Droid 3 last week, and I talked to Verizon today and thanks to their price protection guarantee, I ended up getting a $169 credit on my bill for the Droid 3. So you can buy a Droid X2 and get a Droid 3 free if you want. I still have another line with an upgrade, just in case the Bionic comes out this year. 😉

    too bad the pentile screen on the d3 is noticeable definitely, i wanted to grab it but the screen made me holdout

  • Eyeymnepo

    well the wife and i went for the upgrade to d3 from og. i just couldn’t pass up moving onto what should be a better phone for so little money. my wife doesn’t know what 4g, unlocked bootloaders or roms are so she if fine. plus she likes an actual keyboard. for me my cheapness is really why i got this phone. i wanted to wait to see what the bionic offered, but in due time i will have a 4g monster. also my wife and i always get the same phone. it wasn’t intentional at first, but it is nice. usually we get the BOGO offer, but you also can share cords, covers, docks etc. she also told me know way was i getting her the d3 now, and then get something better then her in a month or two.

    i am just really hoping i like and can live with it, because i love coming to this site everyday. the last thing i need is DL showing me how much i missed out on. hell though this site shows us so many great phones i would always be jealous of something.

    c’mon D3!

      also i was thinking with the HDMI mirror, could I buy several micro sd cards and carry tons of movies, music and photos around like that? I almost found space under the battery cover for the OG for an extra sd card storage, but it didn’t quite work. I was just thinking I could label them a, b, c, d and have general idea what is on each one. Then I would always have a lot of great media wherever i was. with all this cloud stuff, and data usage (yes i have “unlimited”) it might just be simpler.

    Does anyone have any idea how long this deal will be around for? Hopefully atleast a week so I can wait till payday. DROID3 son!

    I paid $32.67 for a XBOX 360 and my mom got a 17 inch Toshiba laptop for $94.83 being delivered to our house tomorrow by FedEX. I will never again pay expensive retail prices at stores. I even sold a 46 inch HDTV to my boss for $650 and it only cost me $52.78 to get. Here is the website we using to get all this stuff, GrabPenny.com

  • So my sister has an upgrade available. She wants the iPhone, I want the Droid 3. Can she get the Droid 3, give it to me, and send the DX2 back through VZW’s trade-in?

    I am on day 11 on my Droid 3. I am going to switch back to my DX and wait for something more refined. Initially I was excited to get it, loved it at first. I think I was overlooking the issues and glitches that after over a week of use have finally got to me.
    First: this camera is bad. Outdoor pictures are blue tinted, and I mean very noticeable. Also the time lag from icon tap to deploy seems longer than my DX. Capture lag is longer. Front facing camera is just too bad to be used for anything. The new gallery has few sorting options leaving you to scroll through all your photos.
    Second: This new blur is not anything better than the DX blur, just different, and I do not dare say better. If it were better I could go a day without starting ADW back up, but I cannot.
    Third: DUAL CORE? This device is laggy, buggy and not what I would call a state of the art device. It seems like more of the same to me.
    And I finally see the pentile screen difference that I was apparently in denial about at first.
    Bottom line, the keyboard is SUPERB! The rest of the phone is not for me. I think I need to accept the fact that virtual keyboard is the future and I needed to stick to it. I am switching my ESN back to my Liberty GB DX, which runs faster and smoother IN SPITE of the Dual-Core (IMO) which impresses me not!

  • Beka27

    Dumb question… is it BOGO free if you buy both of them full retail?  I could use two D3s outright for under $500…

    • Average Joe

      Just called my local store with the same question, looks like it’s on new activations/upgrades only.  I asked if I could get the offer on 2 full retail units and they sadly shot me down.

  • Guest

    not even two 3g phones will give you the speed of a 4g phone..  you actually need like 10 3g phones for that.

    • Mario Lo

      With logic like that, I would post as a “Guest” too.

      • D-roid

        he’s making a joke dumbass

  • Cdguylhs

    To do this you have to be adding a line or have two lines available for upgrade.

  • Max

    this is why i always buy droids but now im smart and not going to buy a motorola phone again

    • I paid $32.67 for your mom and I feel I got ripped off.

      • Beka27


        Well-played Sir.

  • cAm

    It appears its only on new activations not upgrades

    • PyroHoltz

      Not true for me, both my lines have upgrades and it’s letting me rock this BOGO.

      • Eyeymnepo

        yes same for me. two upgrades available and BOGO is working. now just to decide whether to make this purchase. two phones that are a step of from our OG’s for 150.00, or wait a little bit longer for a 4g phone that won’t work in our rural area anytime soon and cost probably 500 to 600 with 2 yr upgrade and no BOGO.

  • This is it for Monday morning updates? Come on!

    Compensation for slim pickings?

    Do this deal. Sell both on internet. Profit. Buy Bionic. Win.

      You will need two contracts plus etf= lose money.

      • SkateNaked911

        just because you get rid of a phone doesnt mean ETF. ETF means you are canceling your contract (you promised you would pay them for 2 years)

        • Anonymous

          So you will get the discount and then have to pay more in the long run. Doesn’t seem worth it to me.

          • SkateNaked911

            maybe not to you. i dont plan to do it either. but if you already have 2 phone lines with smart phones, both ready for an upgrade, upgrade both then sell the phones. maybe the person is happy with the phone they already have? remember, you can still have the 1 year upgrades 1 more time. so if someone got a DX on a 1 year upgrade, right now is that time. but ill probably wait for the boinic then get the d3, im assuming some kind of price cut due to that

    Seems a little soon for back to school. Also since when do they do bogo with a high end phone not even a week old? Maybe this is a sign of new phones coming soon? I’m probably just wishing lol.

  • Bewara2009

    Just 2 more weeks for the Droid Bionic to be release….

      Sure hope so……og screen acting up. Have to us keyboard and d-pad to do everything!

  • OG Droid

    Please for the love of God; tell me some info on the Bionic!!! I’m tired of hearing later and later dates. I need a 4g phone and dual core. Is that so much to ask?

    • EC8CH

      if you ask Verizon… yes

      • Anonymous

        Verizon isn’t the ones making the phones if manufacturers can’t get their tech to work then won’t be any pjones on that network.

        • Doesn’t explain why they’re draggin their feet with the Samsung GSII though.

    • It’s not that complicated…. Verizon just doesn’t give a shit…

  • hey lookie there Verizon is no longer selling the DX new and they’re out the pre-owned as well, maybe….

  • So if I buy one today, what is required for the second phone?  Do I need another contract or something?  Or can I give one to my brother who already has a contract?  Or what?

    • J Dub

      Must be on the same account e.g. a family plan with 2 lines.

      • Anonymous

        Do they both need to be eligible for an upgrade?

        • GotSka81

          It looks that way…when you put the phone in your cart it notifies you that you get one free, and you have to select a line to put the free phone on.  It only allows you to select lines with an upgrade available.

  • lookie there version is no longer selling the DROIDX new

  • tbaybe

    hmm good deal for back up phones! 

    • Anonymous

      with the way you mess them up yeah….. and also….


    • Common sense

      It requires another contract

  • Anonymous

    Maybe this is a good sign the Bionic isn’t that far off…

    • EC8CH

      … followed up shortly by the GSII 😛

        I think that would be smart if they did it that way but doubt they will.

    • Anonymous

      That’s what I thought too, also they finally dropped the price of the LG Revolution and some others.

  • I and my friends were found to be going through the good ideas found on your web site then then I got an awful feeling I never expressed respect to the web site owner for those strategies. All of the young men became consequently stimulated to study them and have in effect very much been using those things. Appreciation for simply being very considerate and also for picking out such high-quality subjects millions of individuals are really desperate to be informed on. My very own honest apologies for not expressing gratitude to you sooner.
