If you have an upgrade available or were thinking about adding a new line to your existing Verizon account, you may be entitled to a solid $40-$50 discount that they haven’t made much of a big deal over. We’re hearing from a number of you who still have 1-year and NE2 upgrades that prices for phones through VZW.com are showing up at least $40 under normal pricing – some of them as much as $50. I was also able to verify that you can get an instant $50 off just by adding a new line, but something tells me (responses from Twitter) that some of these other discounts are regional. If you have an upgrade on the way, it may be worth your time to login to your account.
I would say that this is just another sign of the flexibility Verizon has now that they’ve gotten rid of those pesky mail-in-rebates. Instant discounts are always a good sight to see, especially with 2-year contract prices hovering around $300 for 4G LTE phones.
Cheers Aaron and everyone who helped out on Twitter!
