First deal ever posted, if this needs updating just let me know.

Original Pixel, and bill credits (ie 2 year contract). It was the same exact price last year.

Maybe a deal to some, but imo it's not worth getting locked into a year old phone.

Great price if you can reimburse your cell phone bills from work.

Made out like a bandit on this deal last year, so not sure why "bill credits" elicit so many thumbs down... at least not when the deal is through Best Buy. My experience was simple: order phone online for the price of tax, pay $5 extra on your Verizon bill for a month or two (or three), pay off balance. No more bill credits, no locked "contract." I paid mine off at the Verizon store after three months/payments and the associate said, "DAMN, you got a great price on that phone!"

The benefit in this deal is that it's filtered through BB and they "pay" for the bulk of your phone, leaving you only the $120 balance due to Verizon. Step two is to simply pay Verizon. Then walk away!

Seriously!?!?

I don't need to look at another thread; I lived the deal. My confusion may be a matter of TERMINOLOGY, but there's no need to insinuate that I don't understand how billing matters work.

Sheesh.

Uh, clearly you don't understand how bill credits work. Last year - no bill credits, great deal. This year -bill credits, terrible deal. You can't pay the phone off, if you do, you lose any remaining bill credits. Hence, you don't understand bill credits. It's okay, a lot of people don't.

Bill credits suck especially with Verizon. When the iPhone 7s Plus came out they had a $600 trade in and used this Bill credit crap. Turned out the phone has to stay on the account with the same phone number attached to it for the 2 years, If you changed anything the Bill credits would be canceled.........crap!

You could have just pointed out that it was DPP last year. I do understand the difference, I just didn't register such when I was hurriedly scrolling through the post on my lunch break.

You already knew it was dpp last year, why would I point out the obvious? If you immediately paid it off last year then it was dpp. And you "hurriedly" did this on your lunch break? You've written the longest post in this whole thread. Didn't really seem hurried.

you dont understand how bill credits work through verizon.

example:
a phone cost $30 a month (aka $720 in total).

verizon says they will give you $15 a month in bill credits. so if you pay the phone off over 2 years you get it for $360.

problem, you pay off phone for 1 year then decide to upgrade. so you have paid $180. but you still technically owe 12 more months of payments at full price.

12 x 30 = $360

so $180 + $360 = $540 (so you paid 540 instead of the promo $360) (or possibly even worse they make you pay off $720- $180 = $540)

verizon uses bill credits in a way to lock you to your device. its VERY ANNOYING.

before i bought my note 8 direct from samsung. i almost bought from best buy, i asked multiple times, they said if bought through them. yes, you only owe what the sale price is if you decide to pay off early. as in your example. i cant confirm since i bought elsewhere.
