Verizon offers second-iPhone discount promotion

Verizon offers second-iPhone discount promotion

With the trade-in offer, you can get up to $300 with the device you want to give in exchange for the iPhone X, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, which is a great way to start the new year if you want to experience Apple's iOS ecosystem.

There weren't a ton of huge sales on the iPhone 8, 8 Plus or iPhone X over the holidays, but anyone who's been on the fence might consider Verizon's offer. There are a few strings attached - Verizon's rebate comes as bill credits, whereas T-Mobile offers a prepaid MasterCard - but if you're a Verizon customer in need of a new phone, it's hard to complain about this offer. The discount will be provided as a bill credit to cover the cost of the device over 24 months, Verizon said. Keep an eye out on Verizon's website starting Monday for this deal to kick off.

The one kicker is that you also have to trade in an old device to qualify for the deal.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc (WMT) Shares Sold by Catalyst Capital Advisors LLC
It improved, as 52 investors sold AAPL shares while 1034 reduced holdings. 66 funds opened positions while 193 raised stakes. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc is engaged in the operation of retail, wholesale and other units in various formats around the world.

So, to recap, you can take advantage of this offer if you: pay for both phones through device payment, activate one of the phones on a new line of service on a Verizon unlimited plan, and send in your trade-in phone within 30 days of buying your pair of iPhones.

With the exception of the trade-in requirement, Verizon's deal is almost identical to T-Mobile's.

In an nearly identical deal to what T-Mobile announced two weeks ago, Verizon is essentially offering a BOGO for the base model iPhone 8 with $699 worth of credits over 24 months.
