Verizon Launching New Deals This Friday: Double Data is Back, Buy-One-Get-One Free for DROID RAZRs

Starting Friday (yes, the same day that the DROID 4 goes on sale), Verizon will re-launch their “Double Data” promo for 4G LTE devices. As long as you purchase a new LTE device and add on at minimum a $30 data package, Big Red will double your data amount for the same price. Their 2GB, 5GB, and 10GB plans will turn into 4GB, 10GB, and 20GB plans without a jump in price. No time frame details were given to us, but this promo won’t last forever. The last time VZW introduced “Double Data,” customers were able to double up from early November to mid-January.

In related news, a buy-one-get-one free (BOGO) deal will go live that same day for the DROID RAZR and the RAZR MAXX. Priced at $199 and $299 respectively, this will be one of the better deals we have seen from Verizon in a long time. The RAZR MAXX is all of 3 weeks old and at least in our minds, is one of the top Android smartphones ever (our full review). Whether you are a new or existing customer, you may want to consider jumping into action on Friday.

    my friend has verizon and he already has 2 lines, however its time for an upgrade, so he is about to get the buy get 1 free deal. do he have to activate the other phone? because im givin him half of the money so i can get one of the phones. 

  • steph234

    when does the bogo deal expire?

  • Corinne_1286

    how long is the bogo going on for?

  • IndyGuy

    So, once again who knows what the heck is true….
     
    Amber H.: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
    Steve: I am trying to upgrade two lines, so as to get the BuyOneGetOneFree on two razrs (both lines are eligible for upgrade). If I hit checkout, after the 1st line, will that place the order, or allow me upgrade the second line?
    Steve: excuse me, Razr Maxx
    Amber H.: I’d be happy to assist you.
    Amber H.: Let me take a look at your account. The RAZR 16GB is apart of the promotion, not the MAXX.
    Steve: I have been told repeated that it was and have seen other people who say they have gotten the maxx.
    Amber H.: I understand. However, the MAXX is not apart of that promotion at this time.
    Steve: Ok, thanks. Good night.
    Amber H.: Again, I do apologize for the confusion. Are you not wanting to get the RAZRs? They are the same device.
    Steve: I realize they are the same, but I’m not willing to buy a phone that won’t make it through the day batter-wise. Not your fault, but Verizon’s lack of continuity on what stores tell customers versus what you guys have is terrible. Good day.
    Amber H.: I understand. The stores tend to give false and misleading information when it comes to promotions. The RAZR does have a good battery, the MAXX just has a better battery. With every smartphone, battery life is not all that long, because the phones have so many things that you can do with them.
    Steve: Thanks, good night.
    Amber H.: Do you have any further questions for me today?
    Steve: No, thank you.

    Is the BOGO Promo an online only deal or is it also being offered in the store?

    • IndyGuy

      Both.

  • Phaeton2010

    Tried to order a BOGO for Maxx online, upgrade 1 line, add 1 line, and it wouldn’t take. Vz rep said it has to be 2 new lines or 2 upgrades, can’t mix and match. Going to local store and see if they can overide it.

    Kristen: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service.  May I help you with your order today?
    John: Hi Kristen, I had read that Verizon was going to offer both the Droid RAZR and the RAZR MAXX on a buy 1 get 1 free basis starting today. Can you confirm this?
    Kristen: I’d be happy to assist you.
    Kristen: Let me check on that for you. One moment please.
    Kristen: Both the Droid Razr and the Droid Razr Maxx are buy one get one free at this time.
    Kristen: Are you looking to upgrade or set up a new account?
    John: Thank you. I am going to upgrade 2 lines on my account.
    John: The BOGO is not showing up online yet.
    Kristen: One moment please.
    John: I would like to go to purchase these at a Verizon outlet.
    Kristen: You can purchase in stores as long as they have the devices in stock. Which one of the devices are you looking to upgrade to?
    John: RAZR MAXX
    John: Is the BOGO free deal available in the stores or just online?
    Kristen: The discount should show  on the Shopping Cart page of checkout. You will not make the purchase until you submit the order on the final review page.
    John: Online only?
    Kristen: Let me check for you.
    Kristen: The offer is available in stores also as long as the devices are in stock.
    John: Also, can you send me a link to your website that shows the buy one get one free for both RAZR MAXX?
    Kristen: It is not listed on a specific page on the website. If you go through the process it takes the discount before checkout.

    • IndyGuy

      LOL, I’ll give it a try (and will stop by my VZW store this afternoon).  Gotta love a company whose chat rep has to wait for their website to load to get information.

  • Anonymous

    I just chatted with a Verizon rep.  She said Both the Droid Razr and the Droid Razr Maxx are buy one get one free at this time.

    • IndyGuy

      LOL, I just chatted with Joshua, and he said it isn’t.  If you’re still on, can you get some sort of reference?

      You are now chatting with ‘Joshua’
      Joshua: Hello. Thank you for visiting our chat service. May I help you with your order today?
      Steve: Good morning, I’ve seen some ads for BOGO on Razr…. does this include the MAXX? I have two lines eligble for upgrade.
      Joshua: I’d be happy to assist you.
      Joshua: Are you referring to the double the data?
      Steve: No, sorry, buy one get one free.
      Joshua: Yes. Let me verify that for you.
      Joshua: One moment we are experiencing website issues.
      Steve: okay, thanks.
      Joshua: Your welcome!
      Joshua: Great! the web page has finally loaded! Is your website running slow?
      Steve: Not really.
      Joshua: Good!
      Joshua: I think it is because we have the new droid 4 out today so people are on the website.
      Joshua: I do not see that special anywhere.
      Joshua: I checked our promotions list too and nothing.
      Steve: Okay, thank you. Have a good day.
      Joshua: You are welcome!

    I don’t see the BOGO deals for today.  There is a banner for BOGO for RAZR on Valentine’s day but not the MAXX as far as I can tell.

    • Phaeton2010

       Click on Valentines day specials, click learn more, when screen comes up click on 4G LTE on top of screen. Maxx shows up at the bottom of the list… BOGO

  • IndyGuy

    FAIL!!!! No BOGO on Maxx. 

    • Highnotefan

      WRONG!!  Not on website, but chat confirms BOGO **IS** available on MAXX.

      • IndyGuy

        Well, you type in CAPS all you want….  I did CHAT this morning and was told it is NOT on MAXX, only 16gb Razr.  I want it to be available, so if you can point me to someone specific to chat with, I’d be happy to do so.  But ‘Kathy’, via chat, said it was not.  Sorry.

        • Anonymous

          Yes, I’m with you, I want the MAXX too.  OK, to be fair, I want a MAXX and the wife wants a Purple RAZR.  This could involve a lot of finagling….

          • Keith

            Looks like the MAXX is BOGO if you start up a new account, but not if you try to add two to an existing account.

            I ordered two MAXXs for 199.99 plus tax with my New Every Two bonus.  Good luck on finding them in stock.

          It’s been done.  Go to a Verizon store and ask for it.

        It will not be on the website, but will show up as a free phone once you checkout.

  • IndyGuy

    Anybody know if this will be offered at BestBuy, or just VZW store/online?  Signed up for BestBuy $50 back cards earlier this week.

  • Anonymous

    Does anybody know if the double data applies to tether plan? My Mi-Fi broke and am considering just using the hotspot feature on my phone. Sucks to give up unlimited on my hotspot, but they don’t offer it for 4G ones.

  • http://www.linkedin.com/in/PhilHamlin Phil Hamlin

    I have 2 lines on a family plan. Only 1 is available for upgrade.  I don’t want to add a 3rd line.  Does this mean I can’t do the BOGO deal?  

    I am still excited about the double data because my wife is still rocking an LG ENV2 (“rocking” is probably not the right word to use in reference to the ENV2, but I digress).

  • Anonymous

    This is so AWESOME! My wife and I are still sporting the OG Droids, and are due for upgrades.. Been wanting the Maxx (battery life on OG is horrible..) and just couldn’t justify spending 300 each.. So, looks like we will be upgrading!

  • Anonymous

    So a GNex for me or two RAZR MAXXs for me and my son?  We both have OG Droids and can both upgrade.

    • Anonymous

      I’m serious.  I would realy like some feedback on this.

      • http://www.linkedin.com/in/PhilHamlin Phil Hamlin

        Gnex is sweet, but hardware wise, Maxx will rock the gnex once ICS comes to the Maxx.  So I’d go with 2 Maxx’s.

      • RINZLER

        I don’t root so I don’t need the Gnex (I used to with the OG but don’t have the time anymore). My top 2 criteria strong signal strength & bat life for work… Maxx is looking good to me.

    • Rp780

      I also have two OG Droids and folks on here told me “You get the Nexus if you want to root & ROM your phone & the MAXX if you want battery life.” And, since I don’t have as much time as I use to this made the choice a lot easier.  

    • Anonymous

      Two RAZR MAXXs, if you decide you don’t like it, sell or trade it for a used g-ex.

  • Jose Duran

    What if i upgraded on yesterday but my phone arrives on thursday could i wait and activate it on firday to receive the double data due to the promotion because i upgraded to a 4G LTE phone?

    • Verizon Dude named Jimmy

      You will be able to upgrade your pre-existing data plan to the double data promotion through your myverizon account.  You are allowed to do this as long as the plan is being offered!

  • http://twitter.com/djwoozie DJ Woozie

    Maaannn. I just bought my phone last week. I wonder if I can jump on this.

  • Nits

    I got my RAZR for a cent through amazon… and I love the phone…..

  • eric

    I’ve been told that these offers are for new customers only; is that the case with these as well?

    • Anonymous

      The double data deal or the buy 1 get 1 free deal?

  • Usmc1488

    Do you need to activate the second phone on a new line to get the BOGO?

    • Chrisriner84

      Probably not. Back in the blackberry storm bogo days, as long as you had an upgrade then you could do it

  • Anonymous

    hmmm when they had this double data deal before. i traded my iphone for nexus and got 2gb to 4gb automatically. wonder if this will do the same. looking to upgrade family members phones. non contract.

  • Wbp1981

    Do you need to have two lines with an upgrade or just one?

    • Chrisriner84

      I’m pretty sure you only need one line. The idea is that you will want to open a line for your new phone. Or that many people will open a line, just so they can get a nice phone and have one to sell.

      • MDW

        Just like previous BOGOs, two lines need to be eligible for this offer.

      • Verizon Dude named Jimmy

        In order to take advantage of the BOGO deal you must have one of the following: 2 Eligible upgrades, 1 eligible upgrade and add a new line of service (2yrs) to your account, or add 2 new lines of service (2 yrs).  If you upgrade one phone and add a line to get the “free” one, it is up to you to activate the second one, but regardless there must be a phone on that account and it is a 2 year agreement.  Assuming you get two phones for $300, you pay $150 for the phone, plus $10 a month for two years(assuming you keep the line active without a data plan thats $240 + applicable taxes)  Cancel that line and its a max $350 etf, plus your activation fee/proration first months bill.  It would be a very poor financial decision to add a line just to sell it, you will pay full cost for it one way or another :)

        • Verizon Dude named Jimmy

          in order to take advantage of the double data promo, all you need is a 4g phone.  If you have a 4g phone, and have a 2gb data plan.  Sign onto your myverizon account and it will allow you to change to the promotional plan as long as it is still being offered; regardless of when you purchased your phone

        • Pamsid68

          My friend and I both have an upgrade can we share the buy one get one?

  • Anonymous

    FYI the RAZR is $99 right now at Amazonm the Maxx is $199, the GNex is $99, and the Rezound is $79. These are all new line pricing, but some of them apply to upgrades, too.

  • ScottyfromGA

    just called Big Red, they are oblivious to it but the very cute sounding girl on the phone told me that they wouldn’t know until the actual day, which would be Friday.  I’m hoping this is true….want this deal very much.

    See this is one of the reason i Bought the Gnex, It holds its value does not get a drop in price the next week!

      That’s sarcasm right?

    Wonder if it is worth upgrading or waiting for ICS Quads to come out?  I’m on a Droid X currently. hmmm.

    • Anonymous

      Just saying that I haven’t heard a peep from the rumor machine lately. The closest thing is the GSIII and there really isn’t that much info, and even with that the Quad core is still a rumor as far as I know.

      For me I said I was waiting until Christmas to decide. The G-Nex was out and the best in my opinion so I upgraded. Its really about if you can live with it.

  • ScottyfromGA

    makes me wonder as well, my wife wants a Purple Razr cause of the girly color…wonder if you can get a MAXX and a reg. Razr bogo?

    • Pfigurella

      Exactly what my wife wants.

    • Anonymous

      I’m sure you could convince your store to do so. If not, get two Razr Maxxs and then trade in the Maxx for the purple Razr?

      • Chrisriner84

        This might work. I doubt they would let you switch for something like a gnex tho

    MAN, I almost bought a Maxx YESTERDAY but walked out cause I changed my mind.  My wife is wanting a Razr but this BOGO just may make me get a phone…..wow, what luck I have!

    So glad I’m grandfathered into unlimited data.  I have 10 days left on this month and I’ve already use 6.5GBs.

    • http://twitter.com/Pilotsleep George Contreras

      It is a curse to have Unlimited. My friends have tiered plans and they usually reach the limit and they ask me to use my phone when it comes to looking things up or GPS.

      Wow! You are so cool!

  • IndyGuy

    Dang, was waiting on iPhone5 before I took the MAXX plunge, but the BOGO may push me over.

    • IndyGuy

      Just an FYI – just online chatted with a Verizon rep and she ‘couldn’t find’ the BOGO promotion… not saying it won’t happen, but she either didn’t know where to look, or whatever.  Dang, lots to think about before Friday.

    • Edwin M

      Well you would be waiting for an iPhone 5 until about September which is what rumors say its going to get released. So you’re going to wait around until then for what will be outdated hardware?

      • Anonymous

         Just like how the 4S has an outdated GPU that gets crushed by the Galaxy Nexus’ in the benchmarks.

        • Edwin M

          Exactly, my Rezound will at least be relevant for the next year. The 4S was outdated when it came out, no 4g, locked down hardware.

          • Anonymous

            I was being sarcastic. The 4S has one of the best if not the best GPU in a smartphone on the market. The GPU in the Galaxy Nexus is underwhelming at best

            The 4S was not and is not outdated and will last longer than the Rezound, at least in being supported for updates, etc.

          • Anonymous

            What is the ppi on your 4S?  I know what it is on my Rezound. Oh, is the 4S a world phone?  4G? Does it look like the 4?  Also what size is the screen, 3.5″ or like the 4, 3, 3GS @ 3.5″?  Or is it 3.5″? Just curious because being outdated sucks.
