Verizon Details New BOGO Deal: Buy One iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or X and Get $699 Off Second

Friday January 26, 2018 9:55 AM PST by Mitchel Broussard

Verizon this morning announced an offer coming for both existing customers and new customers who are switching to a Verizon line, which will go live on Monday, January 29. With the deal, if you trade in an eligible smartphone and then purchase an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X, you'll get $699 off a second iPhone 8, 8 Plus, or X.

The offer is available when purchasing any combination of these iPhones, as long as they are both purchased on device payment plans and a new line is activated on Verizon unlimited. Afterwards, the $699 discount on the second smartphone comes in the form of bill credits spread out over a 24 month period.


The offer allows you to get both trade-in credit and $699 to cover the cost of the second device you purchase, greatly discounting the $999 or $1,149 iPhone X, or even offering the 64GB iPhone 8 base model for free.

The smartphones eligible for trade-in cover the same devices in Verizon's current BOGO sale for Android smartphones, which can be seen on this page by clicking "See offer details."

Verizon outlined the steps you'll need to take to get the offer:

To get this offer, you need to:

- Purchase both phones on device payment
- Activate a new line on Verizon unlimited
- Trade in your phone within 30 days. You will receive the trade-in value in addition to the bill credits.

Verizon's deal is similar to one that T-Mobile began two weeks ago today, where new and existing T-Mobile customers could buy one iPhone and get up to $700 off another iPhone of equal or lesser value. One of the main differences is that T-Mobile offered the $700 discount in the form of a rebate received via prepaid MasterCard card, while Verizon's will be credited to the user's monthly bills over 24 months. T-Mobile's also included the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but Verizon's is only for Apple's 2017 line of iPhones.

I wish there were better deals for those of us who prefer to buy our phones outright so we can jump around to other carriers. I guess that's the point though, lock you in.

Meh. I traded in my 6s for a 7 for $650 credit and my monthly payment has been $4.

The X looks like a great phone, but does it beat my perfectly capable 7 at $4/mo?

Nope.

Nope. They can't overcharge you for service if you aren't locked into a contract, so you are of no value to them.

Verizon Unlimited does not allow for ANY discounts that I am aware of.

I am still receiving a 19% discount from when I was a student, saves us about $17/month.

They have a military and federal worker discount too.

Between my wife and me we have 2 Verizon lines both with their contracts fulfilled. So, I guess it would be possible to take this deal with one of the lines, get the new line and then give up our current 2nd line. The result would be that we’d be able to get the free phone and still end up with only 2 lines.

But doesn't that mean you lose the phone number on the old line? Isn't the phone number what defines the line?

I've had the same phone number since my first cell phone. I can't think of any discount that would make me start over with a new phone number after all those years. :)
