Verizon discontinues 30-day test drives
About a week ago we informed you of Verizon’s plans to discontinue their 30-day test drive promotion. In addition to this, leaked information suggested that the discount for “new every two” customers will be reduced from $100 to $50, in case you’re on a plan greater than $80, and from $50 to $30, in case you’re on a plan that’s below $80. Verizon’s spokesman Tom Pica has confirmed these changes, and he also says: “After two years in the marketplace, Test Drive has run its course”. According to him, the 30-day test drive promotion will be no more, but their 30-day satisfaction guarantee will still continue to exist. The difference here is that you will still be able to return your phone within a 30-day period, but the responsibility for any occurring charges for that period will be yours.
