Warning!!!
Deal is dead. Now trading in crappy android phone will only result in $100 Verizon gift card. It was a fixed $200 amount just a few days back.


Quote from nelsed View Post :
a quick update on this deal (which i have done 7 times in the last two months)...

After my $100 port in credit and $200 trade-in credit were added to two lines... I called verizon, paid off the balance on the phones and closed the accounts -- believing i had fulfilled my non-contract obligations by porting a number in and trading a phone in.

A few days later, i see they pulled $200 credit from my account... When my bill came out, it reflected that the port in credit came in and then a few days after i paid off the lines, the credit was charged back... And they charged me an extra $40 per line (activation fees).

I called today and the guy reversed one of the $40 activation fees (i thought we was reversing both) so i will have to call again about the other one. He told me there was nothing he could do about the $100 charge backs. He acknowledged that he could not find anywhere on the verizon website that states what the requirements were, but did read to me after consulting a product specialist (aka supervisor probably) that the lines must remain active and in good standing for 30-days to receive the port in credit.

He then transferred me to a 2nd level billing rep who kindly listened to me, make me feel like she understood why i felt gyped and after a brief hold told me there is nothing we can do. You didn't meet the requirements... This was a promotional incentive to bring a line into verizon... And you didn't stay... So we aren't going to reward you for leaving!! I told her no where on the website or in any fine print in any of the documents i had could i find any reference to this and this was a very consumer unfriendly way of doing business!! She against listened to me as if she was on my side, blah blah blah, as a consumer i completely understand.... Etc... Then she put on her verizon hat and basically told me i had no recourse. I told her i was going to file a report with the bbb and mention this online so others don't get stung by the same bait-and-switch tactics.

I told her all the best promos go to new subscribers etc... And they don't throw loyal customers any bones regarding upgrades... But that is simply wasn't fair for them to advertise something, not state the terms clearly... And then pull credit back when they didn't get what they wanted... Even if they didn't state it clearly to the customer.

Very poor business practices... I think they train their reps to massage their customers... It's only lip service... Then they turn around and stab them in the back... It's like they are trained to do this every time... The first guy i talked to made me feel he understood... Blah blah blah... But when i finally went to my account... I discovered he only reversed one of the $40 activation fees when he knew very well we were talking about two lines...

Anyone have any other ideas?? Consumer interest groups that would like to hear a story like this?? Tweet to john legere... Or something?!? =)

thanks...

this promo has been going on for a while. still great though.
best use is in a cheap smartphone like lg lancet or lumia 735.
if you do it in store, the trade in is instant and the bill credit might come as soon as a few days later.
for online orders, mail in trade in takes a week or two and bill credit takes 2-3 months, which eats into your credit.
if you have one line, you can do 9 more to have the credits pay your bill Smilie

I just did this a week or so ago. Had an old iPhone 3GS on T-Mobile's $3 a month plan for a kids phone. Got him a iPhone 5s.

We got the $100 credit within a week, which was surprising as they stated 2-3 billing cycles. I still need to mail in the old phone to get the $200 VZW gift card.

indeed. though I've been able to get very cheap iphones using such promotions thus profiting from that

for me it really depends on the area. someplaces att is best, some tmobile is best, some verizon is best. it varies

I applied it during the checkout at verizonwireless.com. However, I had to do it one by one and take screenshots of the order confirmation showing the discount because 3 out of the 4 orders I did would somehow magically make them disappear on the physical receipt (physical receipt showed full price of phone). I have had to call them a couple of times, but they have credited the account 3x50.
