12 Cities Added to Verizon’s Same-day Delivery Program for New Phone Buyers

Last year, Verizon introduced a same-day delivery service for customers who ordered a new phone on contract in certain markets. The service will cost customers an extra $20, but if waiting for UPS or FedEx to swing by your house later in the week doesn’t interest you, it was a sweet way to get your new phone the day you ordered it. 

Verizon has now launched the service in twelve new markets, all of which are major metropolitan areas. The full list of new cities is listed below, which includes Atlanta, GA, Denver, CO, Los Angeles, CA, and Seattle, WA.

Has anyone used the same-day service from Verizon? Worth the extra $20?

    What happens if it doesn’t come the same day? $20 back in my pocket? This won’t do well for Atlanta, whole city shuts down over a couple inches of snow.

    • but thanks though

      Have you actually been outside? Also check the news, DC is shutting down due to this storm (which is also on the list).

  • Jeremy Martin

    The ones posting the store argument negating the value in this need to also take into account the price difference you find online verses in the store. Example the Moto X was $99 in the store in November. However online deal was $49 and with the code VZWDEAL it made the phone free. The brick and mortar store would not honor that deal since the online sales is different than the in store sales. Verizon is too compartmentalized.

    • Blue Sun

      I was thinking the same thing too. It never hurts to do some online research before making on-contract purchases.

  • Chris

    This may do well for Portland. hipster city….. After the storm we had….. many still scared to leave their homes…

  • Michael

    for the lazy who dont want to leave their homes.

  • Chris

    america is full of lazy people….. Chances are theres a store next to mcdonalds where you can eat those 10 big macs, large fry and that large diet coke.

    • If I’m not mistaking, it’s the UK where you order your groceries online and someone delivers them to your house.

      • Chris

        We have that too. Safeway and I think Albertsons still does that.

      • The Narrator

        Good thing Mexico took over for fattest country, and not the US anymore.

  • Philip J. Fry

    If you’re in a city that big, there’s a Verizon store you can go to and save yourself that $20.

    • The Narrator

      Unless they teamed up with Amazon, drones would be awesome.

      • Philip J. Fry

        Now that would be worth $20

      • Kevin

        Or better yet, the Obama drones. I heard those were the bomb!

    • Dlongb13

      The worst part about VZW is the store though. I would pay $20 to avoid the garbage employees that work in my local stores any day of the week.

      • Philip J. Fry

        That’s one thing I can say about the employees that work at my Verizon, they’re android literate and actually know something about android, hell 2 of the guys have rooted/rommed phones.

        • Dlongb13

          My stores are awful, I have been to all of them in the Cincinnati Area and dread it every time. Especially if you are paying full retail, they all gang up on you telling you how stupid it is to spend that kind of money up front. Very lousy group we have around here.

          • Philip J. Fry

            Yea, them 2 guys buy their phones full retail to keep unlimited data. lol
            Now the store over in the next city from me is full of idiots.

          • Kevin

            The reason they get mad when you buy it full price is because they didn’t make a sale. If you bought it at the discount price with the two year contract then that means they really made a sale.

          • Dlongb13

            There is no scenario where an adult employee should treat a customer poorly simply because they aren’t making a commission.

          • Kevin

            Absolutely, I was just explaining the reason they get mad. At no point should an employee get mad and have a nasty attitude towards a customer for not buying into their contracts.

          • SoreTummy

            They get mad because it hurts their quota numbers. A lot of people who pay full retail for their phones usually don’t buy accessories and get it from Amazon. They can literally get written up for selling too much retail if they suck in selling accessories or even their products like vz nav.

          • pbolton70

            I live in the Cincinnati area as well and would totally backup your statement. They are bad in our city

  • Disqus_n00b

    If you’re in one of those cities you have a store within a 5 min walk. No one will buy this.

    • flosserelli

      This is for people that need instant gratification, and Verizon is exploiting that trait. This just proves the old saying “there is a sucker born every minute”.

      • michael arazan

        Instant gratification, like the size of our Verizon Bills every month. I bet Fran Shammo spanks it to people’s bills summaries, especially those who buy their hype of VZ navigator and other VZ apps and those who left Unlimited to Tiers

    • Atlantian

      Not true in Atlanta. Plus you don’t want to walk the streets of Atlanta…
