Verizon Now Selling Chromecast, Corporate 25% Discounts Work Too

chromecast verizon

If you didn’t have your long-standing corporate discount axed by Verizon’s re-validation process over the last few months and a Chromecast has been on your list of must-haves, purchasing one through Big Red is probably a pretty smart idea at this point. Within the last day, Verizon began selling Google’s HDMI dongle to the tune of $34.99, the same price you’ll find it on Google Play, in Best Buy stores, or on Motorola’s site. That’s the standard price. 

However, if you do enjoy a corporate discount through Verizon, one that also includes a deal on accessories (most are 25% discounts), then feel free to buy through Verizon. As can be seen in the screenshot below, corporate discounts are being applied to the Chromecast as if it were an accessory, which drops the price to $26.24. That’s close to a $10 discount on a $35 product.

Not bad, right?

  • alex

    Chromecast is no longer eligible for the employee discount =(

    • ddh819

      shoot, should have pulled the trigger yesterday

  • NexusMan

    Does anyone have any recommendations for HDMI Switchers that work well with the Chromecast?

  • NexusMan

    I’m about to order another one. This time from Verizon, since I get that 25% discount!

  • Tom Z

    If only it would work with tethering, I would be all over this. My home internet is painfully slow compared to the LTE on my phone.

    • KanishkSingh

      It can work, make your LTE phone a wifi hotspot if you have unlimited data plus hotspot capabilities. Use chrome extension to configure Chromecast to connect to phone hotspot.

      Tethering to phone if that’s what your asking?

  • sski66

    This is awesome, I have 2 already but I know my friend was looking for one & her birthday is right around the corner, sweet!

  • yellowdgg

    it will not apply the discount :( any suggestions ?

    • Tim242

      It applies the discount at checkout, if you are signed in.

      • yellowdgg

        i just found out they took my discount off i will have to add it again

      • NexusMan

        It applies my discount even before checkout..right on the product page.

        • Tim242

          Yeah, it does on the main site. I was on the mobile site.

  • Cathy Fleming

    Will Chromecast work with my Samsung Chromebook? It’d be hella nice to not have an HDMI cable running across the livingroom floor.

  • VZ employee

    Bought one for the parents for $22 with my 35% accessory discount for being a VZW employee :D

  • JoeTi

    This is Chromecast #2 for me. Thanks VZW and Droid-Life!

  • aQuickBit

    Verizon updating Moto X to Kit Kat…allowing Google Wallet…now selling a “pure” Google device in their store without branding it?

  • huskerhog

    I had ordered one from Amazon and just saw this. I was able to cancel and order through Verizon. I saved $12.00 and will probably get it sooner. Sweet!

  • Disqus_n00b

    Remember when VZW used to apply your discount to the entire bill and not just data?

    • Tim242

      They don’t apply it to just data, and they never applied it to the whole bill. It applies to the monthly service charge, and also the data plan of the primary line.

      • Disqus_n00b

        Under the nationwide share plans they would apply the discount to the main $80 bill, plus the data on the primary line. For share everything, they only discount the data.

  • JMonkeYJ

    Can you get a corporate discount if you don’t have a current contract with VZW?

    • ddh819

      give it a shot

  • Dave Hernandez

    Got my discount, It’s gonna be a chromecast Christmas!

  • http://about.me/pinter mpinter

    Got mine for $28.61 with tax & free shipping . I’m considering it a parting gift, as I’m leaving VZW in Jan when my contract expires so that I can get a Nexus 5. :)

    • Rich Nahra

      +1. I’m doing the exact same thing in Jan!. I have two N5′s on order.

  • Dan

    That is one good thing about Verizon, that accessories discount, got a great deal on my Fitbit through them too. I want to buy, but have no need for more than the one I have, yes only 1 TV.

    • ddh819

      Hanukkah is next week…

  • Jason M.

    $26.24 up in this be-atch!! Thanks droid-life for the heads up.

  • Fiorta

    Charged to account, arrives in 3-5 days. My son will be happy to have Netflix on his TV.

  • http://petervideos.com/ Peter Mansour

    Id rather buy it from Google play than click on Verizon’s website link..

    • Tim242

      So do it. Pay the extra $10 for nothing more than stomping your foot.

  • RW-1

    Well, I told all that I was losing my wife’s 22% discount .. luckily her new company had one and it transferred, though 15%. Thanks for the tip! I nabbed one and it was 25% off, let me bill it on the account as well, thanks!

  • Michael Lozano

    • marko358

      Why would you expect that on motoxlife.com?

  • Batman

    Are there 17 Verizon logos on it?

    • thizben

      Yes. It also sends NSA information on what you watch automatically.

  • EdCenter

    OMG, thanks! I was having a hard time deciding between the Roku 3 (with ethernet) or the Chromecast (with only 2.4ghz wifi). I applied my company’s 25% discount and got this for less than the cost of a sushi dinner!

  • IgotGAME

    Discount not showing for me and I have 25% off :(

  • srikanth003

    Knowing Verizon, how exactly do they benefit from this? something is not right!

  • BeerguyOE

    wow the site has slowed down

  • KB Smoka

    I don’t know why but my discount wont show up…..Sucks.

  • crazed_z06

    Already have one, but ordered another just because

    • zmancbr

      Yup ditto here. For under $30 it would be nice to have one for the TV upstairs.

  • Kyle

    Anybody have a discount code as well?

  • Colton

    still a little expensive

    • Adrynalyne

      LOL

  • Shagnscooby

    For some reason I had a 35% discount, I grabbed 3 of those jawns!

    • Stache24

      That means your company offers a 35% discount on all accessories (cha-ching!)

  • mondeca

    Sure, the hardware price is good, but the 2-year contract is how they get you… ;-)

    • michael arazan

      Not to mention they charge you for using your home wifi with this device

    • thizben

      I’m pretty sure they renew a 2-year contract when you buy accessories like this on there.

    • ddh819

      plus the 5gb data cap

  • Mark2134

    Ordered. :)

    • John

      Who are you?

      • Silver Veloz

        Maybe it’s Kellen’s new baby’s DL Staff name????

      • tomn1ce

        May be they’ll introduce this person in the DL show…

      • MikeCiggy

        mkbhd?

  • NeilOMalley

    Just picked one up. I only have a 15% discount through my work but it applied the 25% for me. $28.40 Shipped including tax.

    • Tim242

      The accessory discount is a flat 25%, and is separate from your bill discount.

      • NeilOMalley

        Good to know!

    • pookietookie

      Same here! Sweet deal on an already cheap device…

    • RW-1

      My tax must be different, mine was $27.81 total, but awesome nevertheless!

  • thizben

    Sweet, thanks! I just ordered mine :)

  • Dan Lopez

    How does the code apply? I have a 13% discount trough work.

    • Silver Veloz

      If you login to your Verizon account that has the discount, it automatically adjusts. And you can add it to your Verizon bill or pay with credit card at time of purchase.

      • Dan Lopez

        Hmm would this not include me then? This is what I have:

        13.00% Access Discount for ### #####HOLDINGS CORPORATION
        employees on eligible lines.

        • KB Smoka

          Mine isn’t showing up either and I definitely have it on accessories.

  • Chippah

    Sweet Deal, but if you already have a new LG Google TV, then the only advantage of buying this dongle is to overcome Google’s crappy slowness in adding true chromecast to GTV. Oh, And Easy Peezy PORN from Chrome windows to the 47″ !

    • James Friedman

      What so you can look at peckas or something? That don’t make no sense!

  • Ivan92116

    are they available at VZW stores…if so, pay with the ISIS Wallet to get cashback :-)

    • Chippah

      $26 bucks, PLUS -20% Cash back with Isis at a Verizon Store DOES = WIN.

      • Ron

        Don’t forgot to use the free $10 for using ISIS at Verizon on your first purchase!

  • Silver Veloz

    Cool! I qualify. I wonder if they have them stocked in the Verizon stores? But online says no shipping on all orders, so I guess that doesn’t really matter. And you can add it to your Verizon bill or pay with a credit card at checkout. I’m purchasing now.

  • MichaelFranz

    $26 bucks almost makes it worth a second Chromecast. I must say i havent used mine as much as i thought i would. ever since Koush’s app stopped working for it I lost interest.

    • Adrynalyne

      I use them for Netflix throughout the house.

      Removes the need to access through slow Blu-Ray player software.

      • MichaelFranz

        if i had netflix i probably would.

      • EdubE24

        HBO Go app makes the price worth it. No need to pay for all the HD cable boxes in bedrooms anymore. Netflix, HBO Go and basic cable in the rooms is more then enough.

        • Adrynalyne

          We have some sort of deal where all HD boxes are a single flat fee, whether 1 or 3. Still, HBO Go is great because you can decide when you want to watch it.

          • EdubE24

            Dang that’s a hell of a deal. I think mine are 10 a month!!

  • BeLogical

    WOW, sweet deal!
