DEAL: Verizon Hosting BOGO 50% on DROID Turbo 2 and Maxx 2

Verizon kicked off a new deal this morning that includes their newest DROID phones. The deal is a buy one, get one (BOGO) 50% mix-and-match sort of thing, where you could buy the DROID Turbo 2 and get half off another Turbo 2 or the DROID Maxx 2. You could also buy a Maxx 2 and get 50% off another Maxx 2. See, mix-and-match.

The deal requires you to sign-up for a payment plan on each device, from what I can tell. For example, you could lock into a DROID Turbo 2 at $26 per month, then add a second Turbo 2 for just $13 per month. The Maxx 2 is $16 per month at full price and just $8 when coupled in the deal.  (more…)
