Verizon said to also launch a BOGO deal on the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge
Earlier this month, both AT&T and T-Mobile announced BOGO deals for Samsung's new flagships – the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge. In both cases, users who wished to take advantage of the deal would have to purchase a Galaxy S7 / S7 edge on a new line or upon contract renewal. This would give them the opportunity to get another phone of the same model they bought for free, provided the user purchases a second line on contract for the second phone.

Quite a generous offer from the two carriers, which probably has got many users thinking about switching to them. Well, reports say Verizon is also ready to join the fray. Starting this Friday, any user that buys a new Galaxy S7 or S7 edge from the Big Red will get a pre-paid card for a second such device. Users that have already purchased one of Samsung's new flagships needn't worry, as they will also be eligible for the gift, Corporate Communications Manager Trevor Thomas reportedly confirmed. Of course, the second handset will also need to be tied to a new line.

If you recall, the Galaxy S7 pre-order units were offered with a gift of their own – early adopters were given a free set of Gear VR goggles ($99 value) to go with their brand-new smartphone. The aggressive way that Samsung's new flagships are being marketed only goes to show how oversaturated the premium smartphone landscape is in the US. “Double digit market growth is over” and if manufacturers wish to grow, they need to convince users that they need the latest and greatest tech in smartphones, analysts say. Well, that, and some lucrative deals to attract users to your side also help.

I wonder if they will let you pay cash for one and still get the other one free. I still have an unlimited plan and were so limited on what they offer us.

Both of my lines are eligible for an upgrade. We are currently using Moto X Pure Editions. I would sign up for a device payment plan to get a free S7 Edge. Or is this for new lines only?

My UDP is available for an upgrade. Of course I'd lose UD, but I've been considering it lately anyway since they upped it $20/month. I can get a tiered data plan, be fine, save money and get a device for subsidized pricing. I wonder if I can get bogo on a subsidized device? I use 4-8gb/month.

Why not take at&t for a spin? I had a line with them, way better than t mobile, and now they have unlimited data.

Just spoke with Verizon. This doesn't apply for subsidized pricing. You have to pay full price for the device. I figured it was too good to be true to apply to me. My wife and I both are eligible for a subsidized device. They will both be bought and sold for profit. I'm waiting on the Note 6 and she doesn't care.

I get my devices through work at subsidized pricing and I'm waiting on the Note 6. I do not, however, buy devices through work to sell. I would buy one through Verizon to sell though.

more overstock deals still to come. Carriers have way too many on hand due to lack luster sales of S7 line

That explains the iPhone 6s BOGO at AT&T, and the half price at Sprint. Thanks for explaining.
