You: and do I have add 2 lines or 1 can existing line upgrade and other one can be new?
Buffy: One moment please while I look up this information.
Buffy: It will take 4-8 weeks, you can be upgrading a line but the other one has to be a new line addes.
You: what is the process for applying the rebate? online or have to mail in?
Buffy: It will be mailed in.
You: Also can I still get samsung promotion offer "Get a free Samsung Gear S2 or VR with purchase" along with buy one get one free offer?
Buffy: No that promo has already ended.
You: I thought it is available until 3/18?
Buffy: Well it depends on your location, on my end it's 3/18
You: it is valid on 3/18 right?
Buffy: That is correct.
You: so if I buy 2 phones on 3/18 then I am eligible for both offers
You: one offered by VZ and other one from Samsung so I can apply for both right?
Buffy: That sounds about right?
You: are you in doubt or confirming that both can be redeemed?
Buffy: It's one or the other.
You: ok thanks

You: things like I need to maintain the account/line in good condition until I receive the rebate?
You: or more days?
Buffy: It has to be on monthly device payments, both of them
You: but how many days I have to maintain the service in order to take advantage of offer?
You: until I get the rebate or more days than that like 3 billing cycles or 90 days etc?
Buffy: 6 months.
You: are you sure its really 6months?
Buffy: Yes, both lines has to remain active for 6 months.
You: but just curious how do you enforce if somebody cancel the line once rebate received?
Buffy: That I do not know, what they may do is cut your service or add it to your bill.
You: thank you
