Verizon: Add a New Smartphone Line, We’ll Credit You the $9.99 Each Month

Verizon has announced a new smartphone deal as we head into the holidays that looks like a big time winner.  They are offering to credit $9.99 per month to Family Plan customers for each new smartphone line they add to their contract, meaning you can save up to $240 throughout the life of a contract and possibly more depending on how many lines you add.  You have to make sure you are at least on their Family $69.99 plan and then you can start adding lines that will all be credited back to you.  The one catch?  You HAVE to sign up for the unlimited $29.99 data package, so for those of you thinking you’d just sneak on with the $15 150MB plan, may want to reconsider.

Not bad though right?  Anyone out to pick up a new Droid for their kiddies?  

Add A Smartphone On The Nation’s Largest And Most Reliable 3G Network And Save Big

BASKING RIDGE, NJ — Black Friday and the holiday shopping rush are right around the corner, and Verizon Wireless is giving customers an early incentive to share the nation’s largest and most reliable wireless voice and 3G data network. Beginning Nov. 19, customers can add a new 3G Smartphone on a secondary line and receive a credit equal to the cost of adding a line to a Nationwide Family SharePlan. The $9.99 monthly credit for the new line can save customers nearly $240 per line over the life of the two-year contract.

“This is an ideal option for customers with a spouse or child wanting to move to a smartphone,” said Marni Walden, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. “The Verizon Wireless portfolio has a host of options from which to choose, including the recently announced Samsung Continuum™, the DROID PRO by Motorola or the BlackBerry Bold – all perfectly suited for work or play.”

To take advantage of the Smartphones Talk Free promotion, customers will need a Nationwide Family SharePlan starting at $69.99 monthly access for 700 Anytime Minutes and add a $29.99 data plan for each additional smartphone. Customers currently on a Nationwide Family SharePlan may have a total of up to five lines, and receive the promotional credit on each new line that uses a new smartphone. The $9.99 credit expires after 24 months. The offer ends Jan. 7, 2011.

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    the other artists.

    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    “The offer ends Jan. 7, 2011”

    Maybe iPhone announcement on the 8th? 😛

  • Sweet! I've been thinking about adding a 5th line just to get a smartphone upgrade early, and this would be awesome! Does this deal stack on the Family Share Plan Promotion that was out a week or so ago?

  • ndcart

    Wow, I just had to scroll all the way to the bottom to find posts relevant to this story. Please give us a report or rank button.

  • Pissedatverizon

    On a side note: Did anyone hear verizon is toying with the idea of charging more for 4G than 3G. I heard it on the radio news AM640 last night. The news said just like internet companies charge more for faster download speeds, Verizonwireless will do the same. Booooooooooooooooooooooo on Verizon. I can already see a minimum of $9.99(Guess) more just to use 4G.

  • Bryanday24

    Can you early upgrade?

  • Bret Tragni

    I wonder how this is going to compete with the Family Shareplan leaked a couple weeks ago where the extra phones are only $20 instead of $10 but include the unlimited dataplan. I was able to get my plan switched to that and it is saving me a bundle. Essentially, only $20 for each line instead of $40 (if they have a smartphone).

    • CIFchamp24

      Do you have a link to this info?

  • Thenew3

    I wonder if they will continue to apply corporate employee discounts to the data portion. For example I get 20% off my monthly data rates (i.e. I pay $23.99 for the $29.99 unlimited plan).

    With this promotion, will I still end up paying $23.99 for the data plan, and still get $9.99 off the additional lines on my account? If so, that would make it worth while to upgrade all my lines. 🙂

    Will they give early upgrades? 🙂

  • Seanoharra

    Aww kellex is gay he removes any comment that don't have ppl sucking droid in it…homo

    • CIFchamp24

      Yet he stills gets to laugh at the morons who have no time on their hands….

  • Mustagme

    You are correct. Once the iPhone hits VZW, it's game over for Android. No one will want this laggy, bug ridden system with inferior hardware. I can't wait!

  • John

    what about existing customers

    • Kelly

      I agree, I have my mom (non-smartphone), me with my droid 1 (primary line, unlimited data), and my sister with the eris (unlimited data)

      • DroidSeller

        If it's a secondary line and going from a non-smartphone to smartphone with it's upgrade you'll get the 9.99 credit.

        • Kelly

          It was but did it earlier this year, so can existing customers who already made that move receive the credit?

  • GoNoles

    Please do a google search for:

    – iphone jailbreak

    – iphone overclock

    Then tell me exactly why iphone users are doing the same things Android users are, if their phones are so perfect.

    Also, I know that you are nothing more than a troll after seeing your other posts around droid-life.

    For anyone looking for them, they are easy to spot due to the unintelligent babble and extensive use of the words lame and iphone.

    Good day sir.

  • droydhead

    If I ever met you in real life I would probably think you're a douche.

    My X runs smooth as silk even with the stock OS. We overclock and run custom roms because its a hobby and are always looking to improve our phones. When the iPhone gets real notifications, real multitasking(not that hackjob multitasking they have now) and full internet with flash then maybe I would consider one. The iPhone fails as a phone and fails as an internet device.

    iPhone 4 is like a hot blonde, looks good on the outside but when you actually get down to business and start using all of the features, it's a lame duck and all it wants is your gold.

    Nikki100982, you're a sad, sad individual.

  • r0landct

    This is why there needs to be a report button on comments. One of the iSheep got loose from their iPrison and can't seem to adjust to the real world. Warden Steve is going to find out sooner or later so you may want to hurry back now.

    • Nikko100982

      Lol see that's why u get called a nerd u lame look at what ur saying grow up n make sure ur mommy pay ur bill ontime

      • droydhead

        You're holding it wrong.. When did they start letting BGR losers on this site?

    • Droid_Dude

      Haha, iSheep getting out of their iPrison. Classic!!

      • The350zWolf

        I have a pair of velcro gloves to use on that ISheep! :^)

        The most frustrating part is stooping to the level of someone so juvenile, but we all get suckered in every once in a while I guess.

    • B1020011

      lol awsome

  • I tried calling in and getting this deal today – but they said this offer wasn't yet available to any of their customers. Has anyone tried this and succeeded yet?

    • Ibowtoandroid

      Well if you actually read the PR, you would see that it doesn't start til tomorrow..

  • r0landct

    Funny you mention “Anyone out to pick up a new Droid for their kiddies?” I've spoken to a few people who want to get their kids or spouses phones but don't want to pay $30/mo. Guess this may wind up being a big deal for a lot of people who are on the fence.

  • The device is only as good as the network it's on, so enjoy all your dropped calls and crappy signal strength

  • EC8CH
  • David

    Did you bother really to waste all of your time coming over here to say this. I have a co-worker who's i*hone has been acting up for months. Randomly shutting off and claiming to need a charge after it reached 100% on a plug in. All phones come with problems so please we've heard worse.

  • Noles419

    Does this discount work if you already meet the qualifications??

  • Lol does trolling a droid forum somehow make you feel less butthurt about wasting all that money on your iphone while youre on your knees in front of Steve Jobs?

    • Nikko100982

      Wasting money lol….that's what u have to say wow thanks for provong every point I made true…LAME

    • Nikko100982

      Fellas I'm a droid x user and I was an iphone user…I'm just stating obvious facts…I've used both but most of u on here just suck one another and follow what the other says and have never used an iphone…the worst thing about a iphone is the network which will all change when vzon launches the iphone…

      • Tabe

        LOL an iPhone fan talking about “following” each other… Classic

      • sdubb

        +1 Nikko

      • CIFchamp24

        You have inside info of when that's gonna happen?! Sweet cause I have stock riding on this

  • Nikko100982

    U droid nerds are so lame…droids are slow laggy phones all mototola is good at is making boost mobile phones…to get your phones to run half as smooth as an iPhone u have to root overclock add launcher pro lol n still they don't run nearly as fast n smooth as an iPhone…step it up lames

  • Edelafuente

    Hey kellex did u see that the apple co-founder says that android will beat ios?

  • Nemesis099

    Well as I'm on a Family plan now with two smartphones I guess I'll be giving Verizon a call to see if I can get this discount.

    • Unicorn56

      It says “NEW” smartphone lines, I guess this means Verizon's longtime loyal customers get the shaft again! I have four smartphone lines already so I guess I don't get that nice discount >:-(

      • Nemesis099

        I typically call Verizon and argue with them and they give in on things like this. Granted I always mention that if I leave I have about 35 family members that will join me as well and they always seem to give in.

  • This pales in comparison to the email promotion that was passed around the other day.

    • Anonymous

      Email promotion? Can you send me a link or tell me more info?

    • Jmed999

      This is too easy….seems like I'm always first

      • Kendal

        Except you weren't…

        • Jmed999

          I had to let someone else win this time to make it fun

  • Tabe

    Not interested… First?
