Verizon Wants To Give You $100 To Upgrade To A Smartphone
Still don’t have an iPhone, BlackBerry, Droid or Windows Phone and are on Verizon? Well Verizon really wants you to get one– so much so that they’re willing to give you $100 to upgrade from your current non-smartphone to one of those above smartphones. Yes, they’re going to pay YOU $100.
To get the deal all you have to do is upgrade from your current feature phone (basically any phone that’s not any of the ones listed above) and within 5 days you’ll get a code through email or text for a website to enter in the code and get the instructions to mail-in your old phone (so it’s recycled instead of just sitting and collecting dust). Three weeks after that you’ll get your $100 Verizon Wireless gift card in the mail which you can then use to buy accessories or even pay down your bill (which is nice now that you’re paying an extra $30 a month for data).
The deal ends September 30th (or right before some big new phone is rumored to be coming out) and you’re still gonna need to get that data plan (which is why Verizon’s doing this). But if you’re looking for an excuse to convince your parents to let you upgrade to a smartphone, this is as good as any (and you could always use apps like BBM, iMessage or WhatsApp for texting and save even more money by dropping your texting plan altogether).
For all the info, see Verizon’s site here.
