Did not see any post about this deal.
Looks like a deal through Comcast

I do not believe you have to be a Comcast member to get this deal.

Free Activation Fee promotion I believe only runs until today (12/01/13)
$200 Prepaid Card offer is only available 11/27 – 12/6

Requires new tablet activation or new 2-yr activation of a new smartphone.

Sales may be limited. Here are couple phones that caught my attention.

Iphone 5S 16GB (Gray, Silver & Gold) $200 - $200 Prepaid Card = Free!
Ipad Air 16GB $529 - $200 Prepaid Card = $329

Droid RAZR HD Black $50 - $200 Prepaid Card = (-$150) MM

Galaxy S4 Mini $100 - $200 Prepaid Card = (-$100) MM
Did not see any Galaxy S4. May not be part of the promotion deal. Worth to ask.

Couple other phones available.

Here is the nk [uot;http]

Or Call 1-888-966-7789

Good luck!

You do not need to be a Comcast subscriber to get the $200 gift card.

Select month-to-month which doesn't have an ETF. You can cancel your plan after you get the $200 gift card. Works best if you're already a Verizon wireless customer, in which case you will only pay $10 per month until you get the $200 gift card.

After signing up you can switch to the Unlimited Talk/Text 2GB plan for a flat $60 per month (plus taxes). Existing or brand new customers, does not matter. Full thread details: http://slickdeals.net/f/6317812-2gb-of-data-unlimited-talk-and-text-for-60-a-month-verizon-1yr-contract-required-for-new-and-current-customers?v=1

There is also a $45 per month plan with unlimited talk/text and 250MB data being offered by Verizon (supposedly for a limited time). This is currently the cheapest existing plan for post-paid customers.

##### On getting the $200 promo:
They have lots of staff to take new sales order, but not enough staff to process the $200 promo, gee you think?!

You guys are wasting time calling Comcast and Verizon, the REPS ARE TRAINED to give you the run-around. They are hoping most of you will give up and go away quietly. Same with rebates, you win some, you lose some.

File a BBB complaint to both Comcast and Verizon and call your credit card to do a $200 chargeback for not honoring purchase agreement. It is now on them to response to that chargeback. DONE $200 back. Big Grin

I'm not sure this would work for a non-Comcast customer...

Also, iPad Air 16GB is $629, not $529.

Can someone check my math?

32GB iPhone 5s = $300

etf fee + 1 month of service = $350 + $80 = $430

Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a Verizon iPhone then cancel the contract ($730) when it arrives and pay the etf than buying one unlocked from apple ($750)?

Is there some fee I am missing somewhere that wouldn't make it worth it?

why go through all the trouble of signing a contract then canceling opposed to spending $20 more?

Cause he would still get a $200 gift card, if I'm not mistaken.

After you get the phone you can switch to the Unlimited Talk/Text 2GB plan for a flat $60 a month. So you get

$200 gift card
$36 activation waived
Unlimited Talk/Text
2GB a month data

for $60/month + device cost.

I wonder who sends out the prepaid gift cards, verizon or comcast? I am currently not a comcast customer but looking to upgrade my verizon lines.

Maybe someone should call the phone number and just ask if you have to be a Comcast customer? It doesn't sound like it and this is just a brand promotion.
