This just popped up when I logged into my account, really good deal if you're in the market and have an upgrade (previous deal was the same for adding a line). Says it works for edge and 2yr subsidized pricing.

Code - DADNGRAD

If you are adding a new line or upgrading, you can call the number in the comcast link directly to add a new line or upgrade and give them the DADNGRAD code - they can apply the code over the phone but you cannot do it online yourself. That should qualify you for both the $200 off and the $200 comcast gift card for adding a new line or $50 comcast gift card for upgrading. 1-888-966-7789.

Check status of your Comcast gift card

http://www.card-status.com/vzw-xfinity/status


You do not have to be a comcast customer to take advantage of this deal but you do need to activate the phone when it arrives according to the instructions it comes with and you cannot return the phone or terminate the line before you receive the gift card. It can take 10-12 weeks to get the gift card and it may require several phone calls. It is 1 gift card per account so you can't do this on multiple lines. This is not a good option if you are planning on terminating the line.

This is the link to check the status of your comcast gift card:

Code:
http://card-status.com/vzw-xfinity/status
status won't show up right away - likely will take a week after activation for the status to show up online.



There may be better deals in-store such as a $200 mail-in-rebate as well as port-in credits and trade-in credits if you add a new line in-store. Those vary by location so check with your Verizon store.



New Verizon Customers

If you don't have a Verizon account already, you apparently cannot use the DADNGRAD code. But you can generate a coupon here:

Code:
http://devices.verizonwireless.com/content/ecrm/vzw-acq/cc.html?
Just copy and paste that URL into a browser. Even if the code that is emailed to you is expired, Comcast is able to use it as of today 6/22/15. Idk how much longer the coupons will work.

Arbitration Verizon

There's only one sure way to hit Verizon where it hurts them the most.

Submit your dispute to: NoticeofDispute@Verizonwireless.com on this form or even without the form.
https://www.verizonwireless.com/d...ispute.pdf

Select Arbitration. Wait 30 days. If you don't get a response, file arbitration at www.adr.org and ask for in-person arbitration.
Verizon is required to pay the cost of arbitration including the filing fee, if you ask for it in writing. Their cost is $3700 per case.
Be sure to ask for some type of "equitable relief" such as you want them to perform the remainder of the contract,
otherwise they'll transfer the case to small claims to avoid paying the arbitration fees.

They'll try to offer you $500 to go away - if that's close to the amount of lost gift cards, accept it; if not, reject and proceed to a hearing. -my2

Verizon Order via Xfinity to apply multiple GCs


Here is my write up on paying off your DPP through Xfinity.... Please feel free to point out if I missed something Big Grin

Go to xfinity.com/verizonwireless
Select 'Buy Now' and ignore the promo listed as it has expired (but don't worry, more to come about this).
From this point on, make sure every time you make a selection and a new page loads that you see the 'Xfinity/Verizon Wireless' logo is at the top of the page (more on this later). Clicking that 'Buy Now' button should bring you to a log-in page. Enter your Verizon account info and sign in.
Now, select 'Device with Service'. This should bring you to a page showing all of your lines, devices attached and upgrade eligibility.
This is where it might get a little tricky depending on number of DPP's you have and if you have been moving SIM cards around between devices but in any case choose the line you believe the DPP you want to pay off by checking the Upgrade/Upgrade available box below the device and then select the red 'Continue' button.
You should now be on the page offering you the opportunity to 'Own your device and upgrade'. It will show the remaining amount owed for the DPP on that line. If the amount matches what you were expecting to pay then check off the box to select the payoff option and then select the red ' Continue' button.
You will now be sent to a page to select your new device. We have been selecting the 'Droid Mini' as it is the cheapest smartphone available this way ($108 or $4.50/mo for 24 months. You should do the same and then once again 'Continue'
Unless you want a different color than white (red and black are available) simply 'Add to Cart'
Now, just keep 'Continuing' through the various options presented to you such as protection plans. accessories, etc. you will eventually get to the 'Review you Order page' which will show lots of things but the important part is showing 'Device Buyout Pmt' which should be the amount of the DPP you are getting rid of and then the 'Total Due Today' which should be the DPP payout plus the tax due on the new Droid Mini. *** You can attempt to add the 'UPGRADE' promo code on this page. It will accept it but for many it does not reduce the amount for the phone*** If that is correct select the red 'Continue' button.
You now will be agreeing to your new DPP contract, it will show the terms for the mini at $108 spread over 24 months which works out to $4.50/mo. unless the UPGRADE code worked for you then terms will be $8 spread over 24 months which equals $0.33/mo. Check off the ' I have read and agree' box accepting their terms and then the red 'Continue' button.
You are finally at the payment page, look for 'Select payment type' and change to 'Gift Card'. If the amount you are paying off is more than $300 you have to change the payment amount field to $300 (amount available on your gift card) then add the card number and PIN info, check the box agreeing to their terms and then click the red 'Submit' button. You should get a popup saying 'partial payment accepted'.
Now, you should be seeing the same payment page again but with a $300 lesser amount due. Follow the same steps as above, if the amount due is less than $300 then simply enter your second gift cards info. Before you select 'Submit' ***Important*** please make sure you still have the same Xfinity/Verizon Wireless' logo at top of screen. Once you select 'Submit' you are finalizing your order. Reason for watching the logo is that if present you have done the transaction thru Xfinity and qualify for their rebate program. Current terms say you will receive a $50 visa card for an upgrade (which you are doing) though some have received more, even up to $200 back which more than covers the price of the droid mini. You can check status of the rebate process via this link http://www.card-status.com/vzw-xfinity/status. Be patient with checking this as it is not even close to being updated regularly, it is showing 'no order found' for me on orders placed 4 days ago and on another they have shipped the card even though I haven't had the phone long enough for it to get to that stage (they wait 14 days before progressing as that is the window for returning the device).
Check your order conformation email, if it lists the 'Location Code' as E184001 then you went through the proper procedure to qualify for the Xfinity gift card. Anything else means the proper referral code was not sent when you placed your order, Xfinity gets nothing and you get nothing Frown
Once you get new phone you need to activate it to complete the rebate process. Seems like a lot of work but now you can pay off the new DPP directly thru the Verizon website without buying a new phone though you will be probably be limited to paying them off one per day per gift card (just got to this point so not positive).

Hope this helps and good luck! -MachVii

No, that would be killer, but still this one is open to everyone at least. The last $200 sale had to many restrictions to it.

Trade in value of the iPhone 4s is around $40. Should cover your upgrade or activation fees.

I don't know if Best Buy is matching the offer, some retailers will be offering it too but it will be in the form of a mail in rebate

It might, I would call customer service to see if they can adjust it.

I can't get the code to apply when ordering online? Do you need to be an existing customer or not?

IME, if you are even 1 day out of the return period, they will NOT do a price adjustment.
