Verizon extends holiday return period, test drive a smartphone today
Last January Verizon made waves when they shortened their return policy from 30 days down to 14 ahead of the iPhone 4 launch. There was some speculation that they wanted to limit customer returns of holiday purchases once the Verizon version of the iPhone was announced. In a move that will be more popular with consumers, Verizon has quietly extended their holiday return policy, providing purchasers up until January 16th, 2012 to return a phone.

The extended policy applies to anyone purchasing a phone or accessories between November 15th and December 28th. That makes the holidays a perfect time for Verizon customers to take one of those smartphones you’ve been drooling over for a spin. Returns must be in like-new condition and come with a receipt and the original packaging.

Does this make anyone else more likely to get a phone sooner rather than later, or have you already made up your mind about holiday handset purchases?

Is this valid for phones bought for 1 cent via the Amazon deal?

As far as I know:

Verizon return/exchange policies don't apply to phones bought from other sources like Amazon/Best Buy/Costco

Feel free to confirm for yourself

Order it online then. Don't go to a store and buy a phone you know your going to return.

Confirmed by a Verizon in-store employee that it is only major Verizon stores, nothing else, not even authorized resellers or whatever those stores are called.

I'm currently test driving an iPhone to tide me over to the GNexus. If I like it, I'll keep it, if I like the GNex better then I'll get that.

Verizon does this every year, not shocking, before the 30 day WFG they extended it til like the 6th or something like that. Still better to make sure you get the phone you want, not worth paying the 35 dollar fee.

Keep in mind that you only get one exchange.
