Verizon Offering Up to 50% Off the HTC Rhyme Through Facebook, More “Likes” the Bigger the Discount

Verizon kicked off one of the more interesting promos we have seen in a while today through their Facebook page. They are offering up to a 50% off discount of the HTC Rhyme depending on the number of “Likes” they receive. The deal will run for 6 days and if they land 2000+ “Likes” by then, anyone interested in the device will be able to grab it for half the normal price. They are calling it the “Group Buy.” Pretty cool idea, right?

Cheers Jon!

    I dont want the HTC rhyme and probably never will. But if liking that page means the greedy Verizon will lose money then I’ll do it. Maybe someone else will make use of the discount.

      I have zero likes and intend to keep it that way.  I’m not a cheap advertising whore and I refuse to buy into this practice of getting something for telling my friends and family that I “like” something through Facebook.

      • Billy Jenkins

        I was waiting for some idiot like you to reply not actually knowing what I meant. lol. I think you missed the point. And I already liked that page before this was even posted. but you still missed the point of my comment

        • WAldenIV

          I didn’t miss your point at all.  In a way, I actually agree with your sentiment.  I simply hate the thought process of companies these days, with the opportunity for free “social advertising” if you will.  The masses are sheep that will do anything for something perceived as free.  It’s another side of the same coin.

          I also didn’t intend to imply that “liking” anything on FB meant the user was a a cheap whore.  It’s the ignorant masses who “like” things because they are told to that I was referencing.

          We’re cool even though you called me an idiot.

    Cost them some money…. are you kidding me? Even if they dropped the price of EVERY device to $0, they’d still be making money hand over fist because the devices cost them nothing. It’s a scam to get people to renew their contracts. Enjoy your $100 discount as you spend $2000+ over the next 2 years.

      I agree, but if you don’t mind keeping your phone for 2 years, getting that small discount isn’t that terrible.  Even if you are month to month, you’ll still pay 2000+ over the next 2 years assuming you stay on the same carrier.  Being off-contract has it’s advantages though.

    • Bretrobi

      Are you insane. Of course the phones cost them money. Do you really think phone manufacturers give their phones away to carriers for free??

    I hate all these new line discounts.  I’m hoping Verizon starts the customer loyalty program that was rumored before.

  • Braston Bland

    Just bought this for a penny from Amazon a few days ago for the fiancee. She absolutely LOVES it (purple is her color) and not ever having messed with an HTC phone, the build quality is excellent. Still glad I got it for one cent though. Have a hard time giving Verizon MORE of my money, especially when the Nexus is a day one buy for me! :D

  • BRO

    Data pak, huh?  Is that what all the kids are calling it these days?

    • Anonymous

      Yup.  You take a knapsack, put not one… but two geebees in, then throw it off a bridge.

  • Craig

    I would like to see 50% off on the Razr with no contract. That might be enough to convince me to create a fake FB.

    Getting tired of seeing decent discounts for new lines only.

    • Anonymous

      you can get it as an upgrade for $79.99 right now at letstalk.com. Thats $20 cheaper than this promo will ever be.

    My sister has this phone, great phone for her. With the dock its not too bad.

    For her though. 
    NEXUS HERE I COME!

  • Genius

    50% off is still 50% too much. 

    • Anonymous

      LOL.. you don’t like the charm?!

    • Bullet Tooth Tony

      That would mean you’d want it 75% off?  Since 50% of 1/2 is 1/4……… ;-)

  • Tesseract 3

    Come on everyone, go like the facebook page and cost them some $$$

    • Tesseract 3

      I’d take part but I deleted my facebook a few days ago. Done with that shiet. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/inmdesign inm

        You’ll be back.
        They allllways come back.

        • Tesseract 3

          I’d have to make a new one. In a couple days they permanently delete it. You request activation and wait two weeks and it’s totally done.

            if thats remotely true all they do is block your access to your own information. your account is never actually deleted. 

          • http://www.facebook.com/bigmack0507 Michael McCormack

            ^^ so true. they never delete your facebook. My ex made me delete a facebook because i was talking to an ex and i accidentally logged into the wrong email and it was still there 3 years later. your facebook is never gone.

          • Granted

            Yeah, if someone has links saved from your account, they can access them forever.

          • Random Android Fan

            You can ACTUALLY delete your Facebook but it was a pain to find the option to do so I had to google it.

          • Duck Dodgers

            Your profile might be gone, but they still have your info.

  • Kierra

    Please do this for the Razr .

      Exactly… not so big a deal for the Rhyme. Especially considering you can get it from the authorized retailers (Amazon, Wirefly etc) for $99 on a 2ndary line upgrade any day of the week.
