I think this is a testing promotion for TX and one other state (sorry forgot the name)
madrascaldavid confirmed its good for south CA as well until Oct 15th
Possibly will come to more states soon.

Trade in any working smart phone and get $200 verizon gift card towards a new smart phone with new line or 2yr
I traded in the black berry that I had in my drawer for many years (normally worth $1) and got the iPhone5S ($99) + $30 activation fee + case and screen protector with little over $10 left~
I don't know how long this last the sales person wasn't too sure when I asked.
It's a great deal if you have an old working smart phone with upgrade available~

I heard it on the radio and called in to confirm before I went over.

I work at a corporate Verizon store in Southern California and can confirm we have this promotion for SoCal also. Trade in any working smartphone (no cracked screen, no water damage, turns on) towards any 4G smartphone, either on EDGE or with 2-year contract. Promotion tentatively ends October 15 (might get extended).

Does that mean we can double dip with samsung $200 trade-in promo if we were to order note 4?

Wait...are you saying this could be used to pay your bill instead of buying a phone?

Also, what if are not eligible for upgrade yet, can you hold on to this credit until you are?
Or will they not even process this promo is you are not new or eligible for upgrade?

The Note 4 deal looks like the phone has to be purchased at Best Buy, and this deal you have to purchase the phone from Verizon, so nope.

you can use it to pay the bill, but no promo if you are not eligible for upgrade or new

This has to be done in conjunction with an upgrade/buying a phone. You can pay your bill with it if you'd prefer to use it towards that (you still have to pay for the phone on your own in that case)

So what is the timeframe on getting the redemption code? It says trade in any working smart phone (usually done at the time you get a new phone) and get a $200 gift card towards a new smart phone. But you are emailed the code? It would make sense to get to use the credit on the "new smart phone" you are trading in on, and not a future phone.

Are you allowed to drop off the trade in phone, and wait for the discount before buying? It is different than an Ipad/tablet trade in deal as there is cell service involved. It just doesn't make sense otherwise. . .unless their intention was to get you bring in the Blackberry Storm in your drawer (for the environment I guess) rather than getting you to defect from Sprint/ATT and trade in your SIII???
