RadioShack customers can get up to $200 in savings with the purchase of a Verizon smartphone
Effective today and going on until September 30th, eligible customers can participate in RadioShack’s promotion where they can nab a $100 Verizon Only Gift Card and up to another $100 in savings with their trade-in program. Of course, this limited time offer follows in line to what we reported a few days ago, but now it’s official-official.
Essentially, for any upgrade customers who happen to own basic or feature phones from Verizon or Alltel, they can receive a $100 Verizon Wireless Gift Card via mail – albeit, they’re required to upgrade to any of the carrier’s smartphones with a 2-year agreement. And of course, their trade-in offer can potentially get them yet another $100 in instant savings at the time of purchase.
So if you’re eying devices like the HTC ThunderBolt, Motorola DROID BIONIC, or Motorola DROID X2, then you might want to head into your local RadioShack store to get yourself in with a new device – and at the same time, some much needed savings as well.

But the BIONIC is $199 only at Radio Shack!!!!
VZW BIONIC: $299 (2 yr price) - $100 gift card = $199
RS BIONIC: $199 (2 yr price) - $100 gift card = $99
Radio Shack FTW!!!

Yes.. I have the first driod from Verizion.. Radio shack is 100 dollars cheaper.. If you have a smart phone right now you dont get that 100 giftcard remember.. its for upgrades to smartphones from basic one's..
I could go to verizon store but it would still cost me 50 bucks more with my new every 2 discount..

That's kind of misleading...
Verizon Wireless is offering $100 VZW Giftcard for trading in your old basic phone for a new smartphone upgrade. But that's all they are doing, there is no "additional" trade in program that VZW is running. That additional $100 discount is coming from the Shack.
P.S. Talk to your local VZW dealer....They will probably match the offer for you!!( I would)

Customer who currently own a basic phone can upgrade to a smartphone and receive a $100 gift card from Verizon. every retailer is doing the same
Rules , you have to currently have a basic phone, if you own a smartphone, than you don't qualify for the offer.
after renewing for contract, Verizon will email and text you a code, follow the link to the trade in website, after filling out the form, you will receive a prepaid envelop, mail your old phone on the prepaid envelop, 2-3 weeks after sending the phone you'll receive the $100 gift card.
Is not a instance discount, is kind of like a rebate and it might take up to 6 weeks from the moment you upgrade to when you receive the gift card.
