Verizon Black Friday Ad Posted, Phone Deals Require Two Year Commitment

verizon logo1

Verizon’s Black Friday ad has been posted online, giving potential device buyers the inside scoop as to which phones they may want to pick up in time for the holidays. Interestingly enough, the deals don’t seem to be all that great, but they are definitely better than your everyday prices, so let’s check them out and see what might be the best bang for your hard-earned buck. 

These following devices will be on sale during Black Friday, all needing a two year contract to score the deals. The DROID MAXX is listed for $199, Motorola’s DROID ULTRA for $99, the Galaxy S4 for $99, HTC’s One for $99, Verizon’s own Ellipsis 7″ tablet for free, plus you can get $150 off of any 10″ Samsung tablet.

So basically, you can score one of the top OEM’s 2013 flagship devices for just $99 on contract. It seems decent, but when there are e-retailers such as Amazon that host countless deals that are even better than these, we think you might be able to do better somewhere else.

Verizon Black Friday

Verizon is also hosting a Black Friday deal on accessories, and these seem to be priced much more competitively than its smartphones. The MOGA gaming controller can be picked for $15, a Jawbone Jambox is listed at just $99 ($50 savings), as well as Skullcandy Navigator headphones for $50.

Is signing a two year deal worth saving upfront money on a device? We have previously gone over which prepaid options are best if you decide to buy an unlocked device (like the Nexus 5), but there are a few people we know that are stuck in Verizon’s cycle. Either way, when Black Friday comes, be safe out there.

    why are you guys leaving Verizon? I currently have sprint and was thinking of switching to verizon.

  • Bryan

    These don’t really seems like “deals” …my contract is up the Dec 29th if it wasn’t for the ETF I’d be out too.

  • umbrellacorp

    Worst. Christmas. Evaaar.

    Well I’m glad I picked up my LG G2 at $449 full retail. Was considering waiting to see if they double or tripled data for the holidays. I really wanted to jump ship for the Nexus 5 but I’m really happy with the G2. Battery life rocks! They need to unlick this bootloader though. The LG skinned version of android takes up a huge amount of space and is eating up a ton of memory. Just give me some completely stock kit kat and I’ll have zero envy!

    These are deals?

  • overclock

    I got in on the G2 freebie deal last week and love it. I was holding out for Black Friday to upgrade. Now I’m glad I didn’t. Last year’s deals are better than this year’s.

  • http://twitter.com/RuSsYjO RussyJo

    wait. the MAXX is $199.99 on black friday? isnt that how much it is anyways?

  • jer85008

    Not impressed with the deals. I just got my Verizon LG G2 free during the last sale a few weeks ago (with a coupon code as well). My Lumia 928 was also free a few months ago – Verizon always has sales if you keep looking for them and use online coupons.

    • Michael Pahl

      wait… you JUST signed a two year agreement!? OUCH!

      • jer85008

        Yes, I have a family plan with three lines. Got in on the double data promotion a while back (which you can keep and get contract phone upgrades), and also get an additional 20% corporate discount. I end up paying about $55 per line – when you add up the free phones (I only buy phones when they are free), it just doesn’t make sense for me to switch, even a budget $40-50 per month prepaid service wouldn’t save me anything. I rotate upgrades and get a new phone every year, and pass on my old one to one of the other lines. That’s my system – works for me. However, this will probably be the end of my contract cycle, I think in two years the standard plans will be non-contract and most retail phone prices will be in the $200-400 range.

    • joejoe5709

      Ditto. Hoping for another free G2. Heck at this point I think I’d take it at $49.99.

      • jer85008

        Keep an eye out for coupons from Verizon, tech bargains, etc. Guarantee you will get a free one before christmas. Also Wirefly (good prices, no tax or shipping, can transfer upgrades within a family plan).

  • Mark Schleupner

    Best Buy Black Friday has the Galaxy S4 for free and the Blue HTC One for $29

  • Michael Coneby

    Nothing to see here..

  • Derek Jones

    Me and two year deals with verizon…never again

  • Jaime Kerr

    Wait; where’s the deal?

  • Filip

    As of today (The 2 year anniversary of the Galaxy Nexus launch on Verizon) I am switching over to T-Mobile. Been giving T-Mobile a trial run with a temporary number for the last couple of weeks here in NYC (as well as San Fran and Seattle) and service seems the same. LTE is actually faster in some cases when doing speed tests.

    Later Verizon!

  • yummy

    Furizon so sad
    People have better options
    Ba bye Furizon!

    I said Ba Bye!

  • joejoe5709

    Dang. The Mrs. is hoping for a G2 deal. I got mine for free and she’s jealous.

  • nina

    i’m curious to know how many people have left verizon for tmo. there should be a poll of somesort-

    • Denvertoad

      We just paid the ETF on a dummy line created for a busted TBolt. Both contracts up in December, Santa’s leaving two N5 under the tree and for the new year we’starting fresh w/ TMob. 2014 is going to be the year of savings. Over the year our cost savings more than pay for our Nexi.

    • j

      like 10.. maybe 11. random android blogs readers do not represent the consumer base as a whole whatsoever.

    • cmbeid

      I left Verizon (Gnex with unlimited data) for T-Mobile (Nexus 5). I still have another month on my contract, so I am currently paying for two lines. But the instant December 15th hits, I am cancelling Verizon and porting my number.

      • laheelahee

        why not sell your unlimited data plan?

  • b00sted

    FFS I need a Note 3 deal -_-

  • DC_Guy

    Renew your contract on Black Friday and lock in unlimited data for life!

  • ToddAwesome

    I need another “glitch” and I need it yesterday.

    • Scott

      Upvoted just for your avatar.

      • schlanz

        Well then…

  • Bionicman

    places like Bestbuy and Sams Club are going to sell the S4 for 99cents on or around Black Friday (w/2 year contract). This is not that good of a deal unfortunately.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Amazon can give you a better “Deal” than these any day of the week.

  • chris kilps

    How is this a deal on the droids, if they are are already this price?

    • tomn1ce

      I was thinking the same thing….but then again you can pick them up from other retailers for less then what vzw is offering them for….

  • ToddAwesome

    The term “deal” would imply that there are actually DEALS to be had. There are not.

  • Guy Pierce

    (Fart Noise)!!!

  • Francisco Rodriguez

    evleaks mentioned on twitter that the SGSIII was gonna be a dollar and the Note II was gonna be 50 on Cyber Monday @ Verizon. Between that, and this I’m glad I jumped on the free Moto X.

  • red014

    Where are the double data promotions?

    • Chris Schmucker

      I thought i heard something about 6gb for $30 if you trade in your unlimited plan…guess not.

      • http://meatcastle.com/ Youre My Boy Bloo

        6gb is more than unlimited right???

        • PhilD41

          nope!

        • Chris Schmucker

          Nope. I dont wanna give up my unlimited but 6gb should be enough for me between that and using WiFi. I’m in college and can’t afford to buy off contract plus Verizon is the only carrier with coverage where I’m at.

          • walker

            You must be in SD?

          • Chris Schmucker

            Woo!

          • LionStone

            Plus you can sell your Unlimited line for a few hundred $! ;-)

          • mikesuds

            I’ve seen this claim all over the place, but never seen someone provide any type of proof that it works… so does it work? How?

          • LionStone

            Put out an ad or someone you may know, meet at VZ, person takes assumption of liability of Unlimited line, bam! VZ does it all the time and even suggest it also.

          • Eureka

            I work for Verizon! Don’t hate me!! Its called the Verizon Max program, you have to ask specifically for it

          • http://www.mecha-digital.com/ Jason@MechaDigital

            Boo this man!

            j/k kidding, thanks

          • gpzbc

            Thanks! 6BG is enough for me. And T-Mobile coverage sucks for me.

          • Chris Schmucker

            I know its ben talked about before but do you have a link explaining how to do it?

        • http://twitter.com/RuSsYjO RussyJo

          gotta splurge on 8 gigs to get unlimited gigs unfortunately. :/

      • sammie_jones

        you can get that now, just ask. its for those who currently have unlimited.

        • Chris Schmucker

          How? Do i need to have an upgrade available?

          • Brandon Ballard

            I was offered 9 gb for 30 a month ago

          • Chris Schmucker

            Do you have an upgrade? or just walk in and say “Hey ill give you my unlimited if….”

          • Brandon Ballard

            I do have an upgrade available, but I just bought a sg4 on ebay for 380 never activated, so they are well aware that I am not planning on upgrading and losing my unlimited…

          • Chris Schmucker

            Crap, i have to wait till March then if i need to have an upgrade.

      • schlanz

        You have to go with the Edge program to get the 6gb plan for the 2gb price. So you’ll be paying 15-30 more per month depending on the phone you get.

        • fenderguy05

          No, you don’t actually. Anyone with an eligible upgrade can get Verizon Max 6gb plan for 30, or an 8gb with hotspot for 50.

          • schlanz

            You’re right actually, they opened it up to non edge customers effective 11/11 as a save tool. Its not proactively offered, but if you ask for it you should be able to get it.

  • Adam Truelove

    I’m giving myself my own Christmas present this year. I’m leaving Verizon.

    • red014

      Whoa, whoa…. Don’t spoil yourself. Think of the others.

      • Adam Truelove

        Ok, I’m canceling everyone else’s contracts too. Merry Xmas.

        • Adrynalyne

          Without ETF, right?

          Wow, Santa DOES exist!

          • michael arazan

            Credomobile will give you up to $350 to leave your carrier behind. Credo is also an organization that funds activism and nonprofits, especially for the environment and trying to keep congress honest and a whole lot more.

          • nevarluce

            I love what the company is doing and would love to switch, but VERY LIMITED 4G coverage!!! And no hotspot capabilities.

          prove it

          • Danielle Etes
          • QballTech

            And pay $50-$60 more a month with this Credo company on the Sprint network. NO THANK YOU! Priced it out and it costs more per month then it does to be on Verizon.

          • SkylaC90

            you win bro, this is the best thing i’ve seen all month.

    • dglelite

      Been contemplating that as well

    • Pdiddy187

      I’m doing the same. Nexus 5 was my birthday gift and leaving Verizon on Dec. 15.

    • Stephen D

      Same, although I gave myself an early present. Went to TMO and got a Note 3. Don’t miss Verizon at all.

    • Snowbo13

      My Verizon contract is up December 7th!!!! its a Christmas miracle! (or I just got my Gnex 2 years ago)

    • Buur

      Just completed the sale of my Verizon unlimited plan last night. I’m free, I’m free!

      • Guest

        Where / How – how much are they going for these days?

        • Buur

          Sold mine on ebay and got $225. People get more but I just wanted it gone.

          • Adam Truelove

            How do you even do this? How do I transfer my unlimited plan to someone else?

          • Buur

            You have to do an assumption of liability which is very easy to do. I used this as my guide http://rootzwiki.com/topic/42073-how-to-sell-verizon-contract-and-keep-your-number/

          • Adam Truelove

            Do you lose your number to the person that takes over your plan? I’d love to be able to transfer my account/plan, but I want to keep my number.

          • Buur

            You can keep it if you follow the guide. I had no problems keeping mine. Just a few hours of downtime during the transfer.

          • Adam Truelove

            Cool. Thanks!! I’m looking to do this for a friend (not selling on Ebay).

            How does this work on a family share plan? My wife and I share a family plan (with the old school separate unlimited data plans).

          • laheelahee

            once you transfer the 1st line, the 2nd line will just be on an individual plan.

            btw, you should sell your wife’s line to me! :)

    • mikewilson1021

      As am I. I am selling my GS4 tomorrow, paying my ETF on VZW, and going Nexus 5 all the way. Goodbye VZW. It’s been a strange ride.

      • DL Stalker

        Do you have a buyer yet?

        • mikewilson1021

          I do, and a local one at that.

      • Eric R.

        With the Moto X updated to Kit Kat on Verizon I’m considering a Moto Device next year when I have an upgrade next year
