This is the time of year when lots of folks are picking up new devices for loved ones who are still using their busted old handset from two years ago. Of course, it's not just about loved ones – contract upgrades and new phones in general apply to everyone, regardless of the time of year. If the DROID MAXX is on your (or a loved one's) wishlist this year, Amazon has a good deal going for anyone looking to jump over to Verizon from another carrier: the longest-lasting Droid to date is $12.50. Seriously. At that price, it might as well be a stocking stuffer.


Unfortunately the price jumps for those who may already be on Verizon and are due for an upgrade, or those who simply want to add another line – that'll cost $100 and $70 respectively. Not bad-awful-bad pricing, but not nearly as good as $12.50, either.

Anyway, time's-a-waistin', so if you plan on buying, better do it now. Christmas is just around the corner, after all.

    This is a steal. Love mine.

    It's still a hell of a lot cheaper just buying it off contract from Verizon @ $499.99 + tax compared to buying it off contract from Amazon.

    Looking for the drop from 99 to 49 to keep total purchase under $100, after all the "Oh yeah" and "by the way" fees.
