I went to target today asking about the iPhone SE 64GB Rose Gold. Here is what I got and did. Also here is the break down. This is addition to the GUARANTEED $200 any smartphone trade in, however i like to call it "select smartphone" trade in.
Trip 1:
iPhone SE 64GB $499.99
CA Installment fee $0.02
Lullaby Rewards 15% -$74.96
Red Card -$11.24 (it was suppose to take off 5%, it should be $21.24, but i only got $11.24. I do not know why)
Tax CA 8.75% 36.19
Total 449.76

-$200 GC from "Select Smartphone Trade in"
$249.76 total due on target red card.
$200.00 GC still in hand from adding a new line.
Net if you treat $200.00 as cash = $49.76 for iphone

Trip 2
iPhone 6s 128GB $849.75
CA Installment fee $0.02
Lullaby Rewards 15% -$127.46
Red Card -$16.12
Tax CA 8.75% 61.79
Total 767.98
-$200 GC from "Select Smartphone Trade in"
-$200 GC from iPhone SE from Trip 1
$367.98 total due on target red card.
$200.00 GC still in hand from adding a new line.
Net if you treat $200.00 as cash = $367.98 for iphone

GRAND TOTAL for 1 6s 128GB and 1 SE 64GB = $617.74 - $200 GC = $417.74

The process:
1)Target Mobile Associate brings out the phone
2)Scans the IMEI
3)Verify all information
4)There are multiple screens make sure he clicks on "Custom Down Payment" if you are buying the phone like i am on my red card.
5) Target Mobile Associate prints barcodes to scan at register
6) Ask the Target Mobile Associate to do the trade so you can use the $200 GC to pay off the device.
7) Get ringed up for the device and pay with GC and red card, you can use the registry coupons if you have them. That is what I did. If they say they dont work just ask them to try anyways.
8)Target Mobile Associate will now continue to activate the device.
9) They will print out a coupon/barcode so you can get the $200 for the new line of service. (hence the second receipt)

I have uploaded the receipts so you guys can try to replicate it. I know there will be TD on this but hey i thought i share it with you guys.

REMEMBER IF YOU DO NOT DO A CUSTOM AMOUNT TO PAY OFF SOME OF THE DPP OR THE FULL AMOUNT OF THE DEVICE OR ELSE YOU WILL BE PAYING THE FULL AMOUNT DIVIDED INTO 24 MONTHS!!!

HOW TO PAY FOR YOUR DEVICE ON MY VERIZON:
1) Register or Sign up for My Verizon if you haven't already.
2) After you logged in to your My Verizon Account
3) Click on your Phone/Phone Number
4) Click on View Device Payment Agreement (This link is on top of the red box where it says "upgrade options" or "upgrade device")
5) Go through the steps on paying off the device. Note: ONLY 1 device can be paid per 24 hour period. If you want to pay for more devices walk into a Verizon Corp store and they can help you there.
6) PORT OUT TO T-Mobile or H20 Wireless
7) Come back and rep me (I'm kidding)
8) Wait for the final bill. If you do not want any red flags from Verizon then just simply pay the darn bill. If you dont care by all means go ahead and try to get your activation fees back.


HOW TO PORT OUT TO T-MOBILE
1) Purchase a sim card from best buy $4.99
2) Go to t-mobile/activation
3) Follow the instructions there and choose $3 per day plan
4) When you get to the screen that tells you your phone number YOU ARE DONE!
5) You dont need to top up in order for the phone number to transfer


HOW TO PORT OUT TO H20 WIRELESS
1) Purchase a SIM card from best buy ($10) target ($10) walmart ($10) or amazon (.01)
2) Go to H2owirelessnow.com
3) Under Services Tab
4) Under Activation
5) Select Transfer My Number
6) Fill out all the information on that page
7) You will receive an email that you have successfully ported out to H2o.
8) If you fail at this try again.

I am updating this with totals for people who are interested in purchasing on DPP with adding a new line or start of new service.

iPhone SE 16GB = $399.75 + .24 on DPP
Gift Card Trade in = -$200.00
Total = $199.99 + $200 GC for adding a new line

iPhone SE 64GB = $499.75 + .24 on DPP
Gift Card Trade in = -$200.00
Total = $299.99 + $200 GC for adding a new line

iPhone 6s 16GB = $649.75 + .24 on DPP
Gift Card Trade in = -$200.00
Total = $449.99 + $200 GC for adding a new line

iPhone 6s 64GB = $749.75 + .24 on DPP
Gift Card Trade in = -$200.00
Total = $549.99 + $200 GC for adding a new line

iPhone 6s 128GB = $849.75 + .24 on DPP
Gift Card Trade in = -$200.00
Total = $649.99 + $200 GC for adding a new line

iPhone 6s Plus 16GB = $749.75 + .24 on DPP
Gift Card Trade in = -$200.00
Total = $5499.99 + $200 GC for adding a new line

iPhone 6s Plus 64GB = $849.75 + .24 on DPP
Gift Card Trade in = -$200.00
Total = $6499.99 + $200 GC for adding a new line

iPhone 6s Plus 128GB = $949.75 + .24 on DPP
Gift Card Trade in = -$200.00
Total = $7499.99 + $200 GC for adding a new line

The reason why you want to leave 24 cents on DPP is that it is divisible by 24 months then Verizon's System won't cry and bicker at your down payment amount.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

DEAL IS EXTENDED UNTIL 8/27/2016




IF THE REP SAYS THAT THE PHONE ISNT IN THE CATALOG >> TELL THE REP TO CLICK THE BUTTON " SHOW ALL TRADE-IN DEVICES "


------

For New OR Existing Verizon accounts.
  1. You will need Drivers ID card and give SSN to run your credit. (Hard credit pull)
  2. Trade in old phone first. Get first $200 Target GC (for Trade-in).
  3. Start a new line.
  4. Must choose Device Payment Plan (DPP) for the new phone (Do not select 2yr contract).
  5. Select Custom Down Payment. Leave at least ~$25 DPP balance. (E.g. For $399 phone, pay $374 to $200)
  6. Use the first $200 Target GC to pay Custom Down Payment.
  7. After you are done paying, at the very very end, the computer will generate second $200 Target GC (for new Verizon line).
  8. If you plan to keep the line, you are done.

You can do this multiple times on same visit. Make sure to do this one at a time, so you can use the previous Target $200 GC to pay the next custom down payment.
Keep going as long as you have eligible phones for $200 trade-in. Most Verizon accounts will allow max of 10 or 20 lines depending on your credit scores.

If you want to cancel the line:
  1. You can port out the new Verizon number to T-Mobile. See first post for details.
  2. This will automatically cancel the line. There is no termination fee (DPP is not a contract). Verizon will bill you for any remaining DPP amount.
  3. Bonus: If you cancel the new Verizon line within 3 days, you should avoid the Verizon $20 activation fee. YMMV (If you are charged, you can contact CS to refund after you get the bill.)
  4. Afterwards, you have a shiny new phone you can use on your other lines, sell, gift, etc.

During this week's promo, EVERY phone on this Target website will get Trade-in $200 GC.

If porting out to Tmobile prepaid, be very careful with the Verizon account number.
  • The Verizon account number must be 10 digits only.
  • Ignore the trailing '-00001'.
  • If the number you see when logging in to MyVerizon is only 9 digits, you must put a 0 in front to make it 10 digits long.

The above has NOT been my experience. Here is the correct information re: VZ account #:
  • Verizon Postpaid- Account # (on bill) ends in -00001, so you must include the 00001. Just remember to remove the dash! Passcode is the "call-in" passcode you entered if the first time you call customer service. If you never called customer service, It is usually the last 4 digits of your social security number. Better to call customer service to be sure.
  • Verizon Prepaid - Account Number is 10 digits, a dash ( - ) and 00001 (0123456789-00001). and the password is your 4 digit security PIN.

Always port out. Also, go online and suspend without billing before you port out so it disappears from your account immediately and you get prorated.
Also, target makes comission, but i believe you hAve to keep it at least for 14 days for them to get thr comission , so to be nice to target and avoid having them hate you in the future, it's recommended to keep it for a couple of weeks.
Also, if you do many additions/removal of lines, target system may get confused and think you have more lines than you really have Smilie

Can you use target GC to pay off the phone? So you got $200 for adding new lune and another $200 for trade in.
For custom down payment option, do I still get bonus 2 gb data? Thanks

I think he understands that. Do you have the list or a link to the list of eligible trade-in phones?
