Verizon $699 trade in value iPhone 4 or newer *new line not required*

For EXISTING CUSTOMERS Verizon has a "loyalty trade-in promotion" where with any iPhone 4 or newer they'll give you $699. I just completed this with replacing an iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 with 12 pro's. The deal comes in as a credit spread out over whatever term you choose for the new phone, $29cr for 24mo in my case.

I have been hunting for a deal on the new iPhones for a couple months. Was going to do the Walmart $200 off promo, and then found myself calling Verizon Sales for help on the Disney bundle. I politely questioned how this is possible and verified 10 times that I'm keeping my number, and no "new line" funny business. He advised that Verizon Telesales (not customer service) have different/more authority and promotions than available online or in store.


I was still skeptical but searching the internet I found Reddit posts with users having the same experience. And sure enough now I have my $45 charge (12 pro 256gb) and $29 trade in credit on my bill.

I got this same answer result too -
The way i was able to get the $700 was by going to My Devices > Upgrade Now on the device you want to upgrade and use that path.
The trade-in value will initially say $440, then it will ask you to upgrade your plan as well to premium in order to unlock the full $700 promo.

My phone is an iphone X.

In order to upgrade your line -
be sure NOT to be in the ExpressCheckout Cart:
https://www.verizon.com/sales/digital/expressCheckout.html?pageName=cart

But be inside the regular cart:
https://www.verizon.com/sales/digital/cart.html

Once inside the regular cart - you should see an orange banner:
"To access 5G on this device in 5G zones, you will need to select a 5G plan. Change plan"

Also, it's $699 for their "premium" plans, $549 otherwise. Still great. I think most their unlimited plans are considered "premium"

Did you see this online on your account? Also, is it only for trading in iPhone? Can I trade in something else?

It looks like it does require an existing Unlimited plan though, right?

Depends on your plan, only the current active plans get this deal, old plans get 580 I think

Sorry for my questions but I am interested in this for my uncle. He currently has an iPhone XS on payment plan which ends around November. So he would have to pay that xs off fully, and then he can do this deal? Give in an iPhone 4 and get $549 since I don't think he's on a premium plan.

Will I still get the bill credits, if I pay the phone off after 1 month?

My friend got this deal a couple weeks ago....she got $549 credit towards each new phone. We have been with Verizon for 20 years and I tried and got nothing, so definitely YMMV (we had 7+ to trade in and they would only give us like $100 for them at the same time she traded in hers for $549). We ended up leaving and have AT&T now. If you can get this deal, it's great.

So this deal only applies if we take 24months of bill credits of the remaining balance? I took verizon gc promo last year ($250 per line x 5) and I will probably switch over to another carrier in a month or two.... If I'm looking to upgrade my phone or three.. this deal beats any deal i would get while switching over, right?

Nope. You can't pay the phone off early if you want to keep receiving bill credits. Bill credits basically function as the new 2-year contract equivalent for the carriers.

Do I need to call and speak with someone about this promotion? How come I don't see it advertised anywhere?

i wish tmobile would do this. i mean $580 for an iphone 4. that's ridiculous. you may have a hard time finding an iphone 4 out there but man you can't even sell an iphone 4 on CL for a 100 these days.

I'm wondering the same. I'm pretty interested as I currently have an iPhone XS and had been considering upgrading to an iPhone 12 Pro if the right deal came along.
