Yea I am not sure what Verizon is doing.... if I try and upgrade any of my other lines now it shows it as just $10 a month instead of free --- I think I got a glitch while things where changing around - I initially thought it was part of a black friday deal but that link is dead like you say... we shall see what happens with my line that has a receipt that says $399 promo credit - lol.

I see it as part of their Holiday Deals listed here:
https://www.verizon.com/shop/

Promotion says:
iPhone SE.
Get it on us.
Small iPhone, huge performance. It's the best 4.7-inch iPhone yet. 64GB only. With Unlimited.

It initially says $10/month when adding to cart but at checkout screen, it shows $16.66/month and there's a deduction of $-16.66 for the monthly credit.

Yep that was it --- they moved the location of the deal - this worked as an upgrade for me it appears - not sure it works for everyone or not -- I cannot get it to work on a 2nd line for me. Oh well hope it works out for the one line I needed it on.

Hmm I don't see that even in my cart. It still shows as $10 a month. It only shows that it's free if you add a new line. Did you upgrade a line or add a new one?

I did an upgrade - but I think it treated it as a new line now that I look at it. It didn't charge me the $20 "upgrade" fee - but shows the current number on the receipt that was upgraded. Another oddity was that I actually had one more payment from a blackfriday deal two years ago and it was supposed to charge me for that final payment during checkout - which it didn't do... also our billing cycle ends on the 28th might be playing into all of this too - like too many things for them to track.... I tried other combo's of iPhone's and memory combos nothing was for as much off as this one for whatever reason.


Attached is the screen shot of what it looked like when I ordered.

I couldn't replicate this deal neither. Verizon Customer Support on chat is useless and incompetent—they would insist that it needs to be a new line, but then when I linked them the promo page, they would "look into it" and after 10m of silence, my chat session would end and I would have to start over.

Tried this 3-4 times spending close to an hour on chat and got nowhere.

The only way I can replicate this deal is when I add a line or sign up as a new customer. Upgrades as of now appears to be $10 per line for the 64 GB, and the discount is surprisingly worst for larger storage variants ($159 off over 2 years for 64 GB, but only $69 off over 2 years for 128 & 256 GB).

It is a bummer that this doesn't work for everyone --- the popup on the info for the "deal" doesn't say new-line required like most of the other "deals" they have.

I do think my account has some glitch on this -- I am curious how it will turn out for me - lol. This action triggered 14 duplicate transaction PDF's in my Verizon documents folder - lol. And on the line I did the upgrade on, it doesn't show the new DPP yet and still shows the upgrade device link however if I try to upgrade it again it does tell me that an outstanding order for this line exists.

May I ask what Verizon plan you're on? Is it one of the newer "premium" unlimited plans (go, play, start, etc)?

I'm on a grandfathered "the new Verizon unlimited" plan which is $110 plus $20 per line for 22GB of unthrottled data each line.

The agents I've been able to get a hold of seem to say my plan doesn't qualify and that I would need to upgrade. But the fine print simply say "unlimited" vs "select unlimited".

I am on the "Starter Unlimited" or whatever they call it - the lowest price unlimited plan they offer now (for me with 5 lines it works out to $30 a line) - my kids were using up all the data we had on a shared data plan we had before and last year we switched to the newest starter unlimited they offered.
