STEP 1: purchase S7 on Device Payment Plan ($28/mo) from Best Buy. You only pay sales tax to Best Buy (approx $40-50, depending on your state). Instantly receive $400 gift card in store (possibly longer for online purchases).
STEP 2: Once your S7 is activated, trade in your phone to Verizon [verizonwireless.com]
. They will ship you a box that you use to send your device in. If you're upgrading from an eligible phone (see below), your trade value should show $672.

The phone is billed at full price less monthly trade-in credits as long as you maintain service for 24 months. Note: this appears to be a better deal than Verizon (Free with trade in) and previous Best Buy deals (full price phone with $450 gift cards).
