Best Buy $50 GC on phone purchases till Dec 2014 - for people who registered in February this year ( https://slickdeals.net/f/6665610-best-buy-50-best-buy-gift-card-with-new-phone-purchase-in-2014-when-registered-between-feb-2-15-2014). Then take your old iphone to the Verizon store/online for the trade in to get the $200 gift card.
has it been verified that purchases through other retailers will qualify?
I chatted with them yesterday and just got off the phone with the CSR and she confirmed it. You can buy a Verizon iPhone 6 anywhere and still get the $200 gift card by trading in your old iPhone.
Edit: 9/15; went to a Verizon Store and checked about trading in an iPhone 4 when purchasing from another retailer other than Verizon and was told I would not qualify as this is a Verizon Promo. I asked to see something that states this in writing and they were unable to present me with anything. I then called 611 and asked a Verizon CSR the same question and was told that I would not qualify if I bought elsewhere.
Not sure which answer is correct.
Edit: 9/20: Confirmed and saved the chat transcript with online rep from verizon who confirmed purchasing iphone 6 from apple store would still qualify for $200 iphone 4 trade in promo
If anyone here still has an unlimited/grandfathered plan, does anyone know if you can still do the trick where you transfer the upgrade from a "grandfathered/unlimited" phone (PHONE A) to another phone (PHONE B) that doesn't have unlimited data, and then activate it on Phone B, then put it back on Phone A? Or did they close that "loophole"?
If phone A has unlimited, and phone B has data plan (2GB or more), then you can transfer upgrade from phone A to phone B, upgrade the hardware on phone B's line, then switch devices back to phone A while phone A keeps unlimited plan.
Verizon representative on chat confirmed that doing so you will lose the unlimited data plan from phone A as technically it is still considered as phone A being upgraded
If that trick doesn't work what other ways are there to keep your unlimited data?
current thread here: https://slickdeals.net/f/6964624-upgrade-and-keep-your-unlimited-data-with-verizon?v=1
I don't know about doing it in Verizon, but I do it all the time at Best Buy. I get 3 upgrades every 2 years because my parents are on my plan, and they have dumb phones. I just transfer all my upgrades from unlimited phones (3 of them) to the dumb phones, then re-activate the phones back on their unlimited lines. Best Buy might match the Verizon offer. Can't hurt to ask.
don't do the above as of 8/24/14 verizon has required data plans meaning you cannot purchase a smartphone on a dumbphone contract/line and then drop back to the dumb phone removing the 2gb data plan and then moving your line to the other unlimited plan
T-Mobile might match the trade-in offer:
AT&T is also running the same offer:
