difference in prices throughout the country


Nov 12, 2003, 3:08 PM
I noticed that the price varies throughout the country. For example, the vx6000 is $150 in florida, plus the $50 rebate. In NJ, where I am at, it is still $199, plus the rebate. Why is that?

Why ask why?? It just is :^D It's Marketing.. Why do some carriers only offer certain servies in certain markets instead of offering them to everyone.. Verizon Wireless is broken up into different regions. each region has its own marketing..

To my knowledge, phone pricing could never be standarized throughout the country. I know Verizon Wireless has worked hard to standardize all the plans across the nation, but phone pricing even varies per city. For example, our store (an indirect location) tries to stay below corporate pricing, but there are occassions that we're above corporate pricing. So, unfortunately, I don't think you'll ever see standardized handset pricing.

I also work at an indirect retailer. We find it hard to stay accurate with VZ's prices.

They seem to fluctuate. If we buy a phone at Price A...thats what we must sell it at. We cannot afford to "take the hit" even if Verizon drops the prices. I guess it works to our advantage though, that there is not a corporate store within 2 hours of our location ;).

Our store is the same way. People get mad because we send them to corporate to honor some pricings, but you're in business to make money, or at least break even, right?

No, I totally understand those arguments but I know that it would be nice for better plans that is all... Smile But I can wait...
