BOGO over, Verizon prices HTC One (M8) and Samsung Galaxy S5 at $99.99 on contract
Verizon tried to grab sales of the two hottest Android models this year, when both the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5 launched. Big Red offered BOGO deals on both phones. But BOGO deals don't last forever and Verizon has pulled the plug on both. The nation's largest carrier is now offering both flagship models for $99.99 with a signed two-year contract.

If you are a Verizon Edge member, both phones are now $24.99 monthly for 24 months. After 30 days, if you've paid down your balance by 50% or more, you can swap your handset for a new phone. And if you plan on paying for either model sans contract, it will cost you $599.99 each.

With the LG G3 expected to be unveiled as soon as next month, it might not be too long before we see whether Verizon continues the BOGO offers on new top-shelf models.

This also applies to the iPhone 5S too. It's $99 with a 2 year agreement.

No surprise for the iPhone because most people are going to wait for iPhone 6. But the price for the other 2 are surprisingly good so early after release. Those phones could be free on contract come fall and would especially look good if Apple increases the iPhone to $300.

The BOGO offer may be technically over, but it's basically the same deal now. BOGO for $199 or get two for $99 each. Wow, what a story!

The real story is the iPhone 5s is the same price, which we know from the Samsung haters means it isn't selling well, right?

I would not buy a 5s even if it was free on contract. To me it's worth paying the initial price for a iPhone within 4 weeks of being released. I don't want to have 18 months left on a contract when a new model is released but that's me. I have 2 upgrades available come September because I bought 2 iPhone 5's on release day.

Technically this is better because you only have to sign one contract to get the $100 price. Before it was $200 for one phone and one contract.

It's a good deal on all the phones wish I had waited to get mine now.

Ugh, same here. Then again I dunno seeing as how I was eyeing the Nokia Lumia Icon, HTC One M8 and Galaxy S5. It would've made decision making much more difficult.

The iPhone would've been part of the choices if the display was at least 4.7" and that price was for the 32GB model.
