If this is like most BB deals for Verizon, here is an overview.

BB gives a discounted monthly price if you buy a phone through Verizon's Device Payment Plan (DPP). The deal is not available if you pay full retail; a DPP is required. What happens is BB, in effect, pays a "down payment" for you. Assume, for a moment, the phone is normally $30 a month ($30/month for 24 months = $720). If BB is offering that phone for $20/month with a DPP, it means they are applying a $240 "down payment" for you up front (at their expensive), thus lowering your monthly payment to $20, or $480 over a 24 month period. This $480 is your maximum obligation. It is the amount "financed" under the DPP. Your DPP agreement is with Verizon and your monthly payments for the DPP (plus your plan cost) go to Verizon; BB is no longer involved. Some of these deals require you to wait 15 days before you can "pay off" the DPP balance. You don't have to spread out the payments over 24 months; you can make a one time payment. If you do this, your obligation in terms of payments for the phone end. "Pre-payment" before the end of 24 months does not trigger a requirement to pay the original full retail price (e.g., $720).

Where do bill credits come in? In some deals, the discount does not take the form of a down payment from BB. Rather, Verizon gives you a bill credit each month for 24 months. Using the example above, your DPP would be for $30 a month, with a total obligation (amount financed) of $720 but each month a $10 credit would appear on your bill from Verizon, effectively bringing the monthly cost down to $20. But here's a big caveat: the monthly credit continues only as long as the DPP is effective. If you pay off the DPP (remaining balance) early, the $10 monthly credits from Verizon stop. This is why people prefer a deal without bill credits.

Note: I do not know how a new DPP affects you if you're on an older unlimited plan (UDP), as I gave mine up a few years ago.

Note #2: I've done discount DPP deals with BB and no bill credit on at least 5 occasions over the past 18 months. In every single case, I was able to pay off the DPP a few weeks later and not pay full retail. Look closely at your DPP contract. Make sure the deal is not for bill credits. The amount listed under "amount "financed" reflects your actual obligation. Of course, when you first buy the phone, BB charges tax on the full retail price and Verizon may add a $35 activation fee . This is above and beyond the DPP and is not included in the DPP agreement.

Note #3: I've been able to successfully apply existing BB gift cards as a down payment at the time of purchase. Recently I bought an S7 Edge, for instance, and had $150 in BB gift cards. The BB (rep in store) added the value of the cards to the DPP, lowering my "amount financed" to around $7 a month.

Note #4: If you're not already a member of the BB Mobile program, sign up at the point of sale for the phone. After your phone is active for 15 days or so, you will received $25 in BB rewards.

EDIT/UPDATE: I looked closer at the deal for the S8+. According to the DPP agreement (made available right before hitting the pay button online), the amount financed is $516, with 24 payments of $21.50. So it appears this deal does not involve bill credits. There is a "prepayment" clause and it states clearly there is no prepayment penalty (although you might have to wait 15 days).

Also, I wanted to point out that sometimes these deals involve a monthly discount based on a "down payment" from BB plus bill credits from Verizon. In the spring, I bought a Moto Z for $10 a month on a DPP. I also get $10 monthly credits from Verizon. My net for the phone is $0. As mentioned above, these credits will stop if I pay off the DPP (which I don't plan on doing).

True. So feel free to pay $750 cash for the phone and others can pay $420 over time. You're a financial genius!

Need help making decision. I just made an order through Samsung for trade in bogo deal and I applied unidays discount. For 2 galaxy s8+ unlocked version I paid $593.60 and I need to trade in a phone which I will buy galaxy s6 from ebay for around $150. Which makes the total of $743.60 but i know samsung scams and many of trade in phones get denied and has to pay for the full price. Should i just cancel the order and get this deal instead? Obviously i wanna save money and i need a new phone for me and my brother. Any suggestion as to what should i do? Also is there anyone already gotten the bogo deal with trade in either got approved or denied? Thanks
I don't know but if Samsung denies your trade in can you cancel the order at that point? If not I wouldn't bother with that deal. If you file a chargeback or BBB report do they blacklist your phones? Also consider factory unlocked vs. Verizon version.

I dont think I can return the phone at the time samsung denies my trade and also if they do I cannot get my trade in phone back. I only use verizon for past 10 years and planning on staying on it due to my location so Verizon or unlock doesn't matter to me

Samsung deal sounds risky. They should at least ship or allow cancellation after receiving trade in and return denied trade ins if you pay return shipping.

So you aren't locked in for 2 years like a contract so this is a much better deal than the bill credit deals Verizon has been pushing lately.

True but if you want to pay the phone off early you have to pay the full price not the $420, right?

Maybe with bill credit deals but with DPP only deals like this you just pay the $420. At least that's how these deals worked in the past and I haven't read the terms of this agreement so can't say for certain. OP says Total Financed Amount: $420 though.

I'm assuming this won't work if you're already on a Verizon plan? I wish I could buy this phone for $420 at once and stay on my current plan and sell the old phone I already paid in full.
