Verizon will no longer pay the ETF of new customers switching to Big Red; Galaxy S7 BOGO also ends

Verizon will no longer pay the ETF of new customers switching to Big Red; Galaxy S7 BOGO also ends
Verizon eliminated a couple of promotions yesterday, including one that paid the Early Termination Fee of subscribers breaking a rival's two-year contract to switch to Verizon. Big Red initiated the reimbursement fee on December 28th. AT&T, which started its $650 ETF payments in February of this year, still offers the promotion along with T-Mobile and Sprint. The latter two carriers have offered the $650 ETF reimbursement for some time. T-Mobile was the first to start this practice, beginning its reimbursements in January 2014.

Also ending today is Verizon's BOGO offer on the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. That deal actually lasted longer than originally scheduled. Verizon planned on ending the BOGO at the beginning of this month, but extended the offer until yesterday.

Verizon's national trade-in event started yesterday. Verizon customers can trade in their current handset (in working condition) and receive up to $312 to use toward the purchase of certain models like the Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5, 16GB Apple iPhone 6s or Motorola DROID Turbo 2. The largest trade-in amount will go to those turning in their Motorola DROID Turbo, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, HTC One M9, LG G4, LG V10, Apple iPhone 6 and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus.
