Verizon launching a BOGO deal on iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8

Starting tomorrow, December 15th, Verizon has apparently decided to launch a BOGO offer for none other than the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, the Galaxy S8, and Galaxy S8+. This will certainly inject some mobile industry excitement in the run up to the holidays. Twofers are where it's at for customers, and Verizon knows that very well, so it has attached some strings to the deal, like the requirement for the phones to be purchased on installments, and a new line of Verizon Unlimited to go with them, too. Still, you can upgrade to this deal, or come from another carrier, so Big Red gives you options. 

Furthermore, you can't buy an iPhone and a Galaxy, but have to mix and match from the same manufacturer. Still, with no trade-in requirements, Verizon will subsidize some of the hottest current phones at what is essentially half price, so we can't wait the deal to go active tomorrow, and learn about all the juicy details. Analysts used to be happy that carriers were shy to offer BOGOs this season, as that reflected well on the bottom line, but they threw a monkey wrench into the subsidy-free system fairly quickly.

T-Mobile has had bogo deals for almost half a year now. Their iPhone bogo deal just ended but the Samsung and LG bogo deal are still going and I believe att is offering a bogo deal on the iPhone 8 as well...

Where is Samsung offering a BOGO deal? Please give me a link. Because I just visited and and they are not offering any deal. You seem to not understand a carrier/retailer deal vs an OEM deal. Please understand, a carrier and a retailer are also customers. They have to buy their phones from the OEM, which means when pre-orders happen, it includes them too. Not just end users. Once the carrier/retailer gets them, they can pretty much sell them however they want offering whatever deals they can to get stock out the door. OEM's rarely directly offer BOGO deals vs carriers/retailers.

You seem to not understand anything that anyone is saying. I said TMOBILE is offering a bogo deal not OEM. I said nothing about OEM's. I have worked for the carriers before so I already know how the whole selling of phones go with carrier's but thanks for the refresher course lol.

Id stay away from verizons, because it ain't really a deal. The last time I took this deal I got stuck with paying for the phones at regular price for the first 6 months before I finally received my rebate card. A rebate card/credit card. You can choose to pay your second phone off or buy bitcoin or what ever you like and they will tell you this hoping that you'll choose not to pay your bill and then youre stuck with paying for two phones at regular price instead. Verizon is all about hidden agendas and Id stay away from them completely if I could get out of my contracts.

For the Verizon BOGO, one of the lines must be a new line. So existing Verizon customers cannot take advantage of the BOGO unless they want to add a new line. What a crock of crap!
