Verizon Promotional Mailer: Receive $100 Off Any 4G Smartphone, No Limitations Found

Checked your mail today? You may have received a flyer from Verizon that will get you $100 off of any 4G smartphone from now through X-Mas. Not a bad deal, especially knowing that a certain phone is dropping at some point within the next week and will likely be priced at $299. And this mailer doesn’t appear to limit your choices – RAZR, Rezound or Galaxy Nexus should be fair game. Not sure how far this mailer reaches, but this one appears to be in Illinois. 

  

And the fine print:

Cheers Brian!

    Oh, I hope I get this mailer.  Thank you for the news.  :)

    I called 6 times I finally got it.  And I live in Florida.  You just have to keep trying eventually you may find someone who will give it to you.

    Tried twice but I was told I’m not eligible, that the promotion only applies to certain phone numbers, even though I’m in Chicago.

  • http://twitter.com/ReverendYo Matthew Rose

    After going through, being told I was eligible, then being told I was no longer eligible (In the same phone call) for this deal, I decided to call back and ask what the actual story was.  Unfortunately I was told that I wasn’t eligible for the $100 off credit.  I was pretty disappointed, but still nice to the person working.  I then asked her if there was anything else that I might be eligible for that she could find since I was told different things by others I thought maybe she would find something…low and behold she did!  

    Turns out I can get a “free month” for signing a new contract (I bought my D1 Nov 6 2009 so I am out of contract now), which is a MUCH bigger discount ($230 instead of just $100) all said and done (since I have a family plan with 3 smart phone lines).

    Figured I would post this, just in case it helps anyone else!

    I received a flyer that looks similar to the one pictured except it doesn’t say anything about $100 off. It just says get our lowest promotional price on any phone. Which I am assuming will be $299.99 on the nexus if it is ever released.

  • Smr561

    I only received a $30 Off flyer. So sad.

  • Karl Johnson

    If anyone has one that they are not going to use I would gladly pay for postage to have it sent to me. Let me know.

  • John-Mark Clawson

    Just got mine… but it’s only for $30

  • Sean

    Received one of these in the mail today for a whopping $30 discount!

  • Anonymous

    So I got the flier, noticed it was for $30, which happens to be the same as my last NE2. So I called in… turns out, the flier is just telling you what your last NE2 discount is. 

  • Gasaraki

    I didn’t get one…   =’(

    Following up: I just got mine in the mail and it’s only for $30. I live in Indianapolis.

  • http://www.facebook.com/DarkStar087 Stephen Murphy

    Live in indy as well, Got the mailer, Basicly just a reminder that I am able to upgrade early cause the verizon rep on the phone didn’t even give me 50 bucks off after saying it was…epic fail.

    lucky me, I got a mailer from verizon, get up to 2 free LG Pheonix phones with, yes, free shipping!

    I live in Illinois and got this a few days ago. I’ve been able to upgrade at promo pricing for awhile but my last NE2 isn’t until January.

    never got one

    The only business reason I can see for stores having them in stock and not being able to sell them is that there is a serious flaw that has to be corrected before it can be launched.  What other possible business reason could there be?

      there are several posts about the delay being that verizon is in violation due to them prohibiting Google Wallet, as the Supreme court ruled a few years ago that VZW cannot limit how we use our phones—their answer was not that they were limiting it due to competition to the other NFC payment option ISIS, but rather that Google had to alter the phones to use Wallet…the whole article is on Android Talk if u wanna google the whole thing…

    Got my flyer today and it is only for $50 bucks off any phone, not the $100.  I am located in Nebraska

    With my limited knowledge of Verizon logistics I’m still going to bet the fact the stores didn’t get them yesterday proves the LTE outage wasn’t to blame and the 9th was not a valid date.  If there was a last minute halt due a problem on the 7th/8th wouldn’t the phones already been in transit to the stores on the 7th to arrive on the 8th to be sold on the 9th?  Unless they were doing same day shipping I can’t see how the stores wouldn’t have had them yesterday is the outage was the problem.

    • jerry turner

      from that has been said stores have them just can’t sell them.

        Stores have demo units but no confirmation of stock. I know my local store doesn’t have any.

        I read about the wallet stuff but figured if that was the cause it would have come up much earlier.

  • jerry turner

    I call vzw. No info at all but I did confirm that any credits you have (such as new every 2 or loyalty) will stack with the Living Social voucher.

  • ThBigMan

    I called my local vzw store today and you know what the said?   How can I help you?

    I just called my local VZW store and they said I cant hold one but they let my sister do it in jersey. Thats messed up.

    • Anonymous

      hey told me I could hold one too.. then texted me back that it was a mistake.  She’s probably getting the same run-a-round.

  • Nex-Life

    I sure hope they don’t Drop the Ball after the deals…that would just be wrong…My OG is starting to act up with all this stuff on it…time to upgrade for sure!

    Did you guys call your local store or the master corporate headquarters

    • Anonymous

      Local store.

  • Anonymous

    Umm I am just going out on a limb here but just bc a store has them doesn’t mean they can sell them to you. So maybe Costco did get 500 in stock but they can’t sell even one of those until Verizon gives the ok. I don’t want to be mean but I think the release of the phone has made some people lose what common sense they have. 

    • Nex-Guest

      True but if they sold it wouldn’t that be hillarious?!?!?

    Called Verizon they told me it’s a midwest only deal, I’m in Arizona so I don’t qualify. Also if you have a business account they will take $100 off.

      i am paying full up front cash i wonder if i get a discount for paying cash and i have a verizon business acct. too

    • Anonymous

      Interesting. I’ll have to call them tomorrow. I live in Wisconsin. Did you call the main Verizon number (I think it’s *611 from our phones) or did you call a local store?

  • Dominick DeVito

    Best Buy was just told 12/31.

    • Anonymous

      Source? Are you talking about the availability of the Nexus?

      • Dominick DeVito

        prob when the next shipments are coming in. Prob doesn’t reflect the release date, per say, but still not a good sign.

      • Dominick DeVito

        the 12/31 rumors are starting to hit Twitter now – sounds like another update is coming to the phone first. I would think it will hit the phones currently on the shelves as an OTA when you activate them.

        EDIT: since twitter moves faster than light, now a URL redirect on VZW’s web site apparently points to a shopping site with the gnex name in it – I tried it but doesn’t work. But I like this rumor WAY more. :)

        • Nex-Life

          Do you have a linky??

          • Dominick DeVito

            EDIT: just saw the pics of the 12-31 date on the boxes, not proven to be the GNex boxes. I’m debunking it until I see more.

          Response from Verizon just now to my question when:  “Not sure, I’ll keep your number and let you know when it launches.”

  • Anonymous

    Not sure what the deal is – I just called my Verizon store.  They have the G-Nex in stock for sale, and I put one on hold to go by at lunch and pick it up.  I didn’t get a mailer AFAIK.  At least I’ll get the upgrade discount.

    WELL! The Verizon store right up the road from me has the G-Nex in stock. My favorite salesman allowed me to see a box and gander at the phone. He said they can’t sell any until they get the word from corporate. But my box is on reserve! If its the 9th, 12th, 26th, I don’t care. When the word is given, I’ll get the call and will hustle up to the store to get my G-Nex!!!

  • http://twitter.com/OptimusIM Olatunji

    Someone let me get this.

  • http://twitter.com/strifejester Justin Ellenbecker

    I have 5 lines and they sent this to me but the number ending part was for a phone I upgraded the day the RAZR came out.  I have not upgraded my line and my online account does not show an extra upgrade on that line.  I wonder if I can use this on my line that will be getting a nexus if the frickin thing ever comes out.

  • http://profiles.google.com/srspirofl Steve Spiro

    Hey VZW.. How about lowering the price on the rezound and/or RAZR? Having them at the same price as the gnex is a little ridiculous.  Give us a bogo or something.

    • Dominick DeVito

      why is that ridiculous? All three phones are equal.

  • Lyhahred

    Does anyone else think the holdup on the Nexus is so that Verizon can remake the boot loader lock?  We already have a method of attacking it before the phone is realeased…..

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=25001493 Hank Godwin

      No, Google wouldn’t agree to that with their Nexus phone.  Verizon released the Xoom with an unlockable bootloader, so it’s not like this is a first or something.

    • http://twitter.com/Justinwrites Justin True Anderson

      Uhm, we (not me) didn’t find a way of attacking the bootloader anymore than I found a way of attacking an all you can eat buffet.  It was laid open and designed to be unlocked.  In other words, no hack necessary.

  • Craig

    On phone with Verizon now.  They seem to be totally perplexed, but are not disputing that this is real.  I have repeatedly pointed out the “available only to customers who have not upgraded during the past 180 days” which means an early upgrade available otherwise.

    • Craig

      Got absolutely nowhere with this.  They had no clue and consistently tried to make the point that this was for non-smartphone customers only.  Ugh.. why did I bother?

  • einstein2001

    No promotion for upstate NY. The rep was able to knock $10 off my monthly bill though. Found out my unlimited data is grandfathered in too. G-Nex please!
