Any experience buying a new contract from Amazon Wireless?

So I'm currently contemplating switching from my current network over to Verizon Wireless and using the sale on Amazon Wireless where every phone is a penny with a new activation. I was wondering if anyone here has any experience getting a contract through amazon wireless and would give some feedback on their system. Should I go through Amazon to get my contract with Verizon or would I better off paying for the phone and going to a physical store to get up my contract?

If you buy through Amazon, you will sign 2 contracts, one with Verizon to maintain your line of service for 2 years and one with Amazon to keep that particular phone active and not change your plan for 6 months.  If you think you may need to make changes to your plan, or you'll want to activate another phone within that first 6 months, then you'll want to go directly through Verizon, or through another retailer that doesn't ask you to sign that type of contract.
