We mentioned in our review of the Motorola Droid Bionic that one of our main concerns was its cost. At $299.99 with a two-year contract, the Droid Bionic is quite the pricey product, even if it is an excellent handset. If you decide to get the optional accessories, the cost can quickly add up.

But if you're Costco member, you might be in luck. According to PhoneArena, the large retailer is offering the phone for $279.99 along with a free accessory bundle. The bundle includes a standard dock, a vehicle navigation dock, and a battery charger that comes with an extra battery. These accessories alone ring up at around $158, so you're getting quite a deal.

We should note, however, that none of the included accessories let you access Webtop, the application that changes the phone into a portable PC with a full version of Firefox. For that, you need to get pricier options like the $300 laptop dock, the $100 HD station, or the $30 Webtop adapter.

The Droid Bionic recently won our Editor's Choice award for its sleek design, generous feature set, and zippy performance. It has a dual-core processor, an 8-megapixel rear camera with 1080p video recording, a front-facing VGA camera, 4G LTE support, and more.
