    I was in my local Verizon store over the weekend picking up a new phone for my wife. I asked the sales person if I could use my corporate discount to buy a Xoom.

    She told that the corporate discount did not apply, but on the weekends the store manager would offer discounts if you purchased a Xoom.The Manager wasn't there at the time, so I didn't get a chance to ask how the discount worked.

    Has anyone heard about these in-store discounts and if so, just how much of a discount is being offered/negotiated?

    Thanks

    Great question.. wish I could tell you more..
    but from what little I've seen, it depends on the specific manager/store..
    Are you getting a plan with it or going WiFi only?
    You know they cut the price to $499 for the 32g wifi only, I expect :)
    Hope it all works out well 4 u :)

    I'd wait on the Xoom if I were you... Verizon has at least a half dozen tablets coming out over the next couple of months, including two which are directly replacing the Xoom.

    It's not a bad tablet, but chances are that all the options might net you something better or a cheaper price if you just wait a bit.

    We have a similar corporate / discount structure with Verizon; however we only get discounts on service and not on hardware (on Apple we get $10 off the iPad) ;)
