Verizon Pre-BF Deal - Pixel 2 $324.98 or Pixel 2 XL $424.98 w/trade in and 24 month contract

-7 Deal Score

Long time lurker and I got a ton of SD help 2 years ago BF when I got a Droid Turbo 2 and statement credit after statement credit after statement credit (some of you definitely remember what I'm talking about). Anyway, was hoping to get a new phone and saw this and it seemed decent to me but if I'm missing something please let me know.

My situation is a little unusual in that I already have Verizon, plan on staying with Verizon so don't mind 2 year contract, and just want a significant upgrade of my phone. So this deal seems to be 50% off for (quoting language here) "Eligible trade-in must be in good working & cosmetic condition." Seems to me that's pretty broad and would include some of the types of phones I used 2 years back.

My thought was to buy a cheap phone, use that as a trade-in, get the Pixel 2, sell my Droid Turbo 2 separately and end up with a pretty solid price on the Pixel 2. But I know enough to know I don't know a lot so please educate me if I'm missing something obvious. Thanks!

Good plan but my guess is that the"eligible trade in" is gonna be limited to previous flagship phones of the last 12-18 months unlike your Droid turbo 2 deal you were speaking of (i cashed in on the same deal) all of Verizons later trade in offers have involved some trade in requirements to stop folks from doing what we did 2 years ago and trading in zone 2 prepaid phone's in exchange for a 70$ s6 or 100$ Droid

OP, this promo has been live since the pixels 2 were releases, and i dont think your turbo 2 gets any of the higher values...something better may come for BF, specially from BBY

You're right, I missed that as it didn't show up until further in the process but I see it now. I hereby self-demote myself to lurker and will self-flaggelate thought Thanksgiving. Frown Hopefully Verizon comes up with SOMETHING better than what I've seen so far for BF or CM...
