Verizon's national trade-in event starts now; grab a Galaxy S7, LG G5 or iPhone 6s at a great price

If you have an older handset as your daily driver, Verizon is giving you an opportunity starting today, to trade in it with more favorable terms thanks to its national trade-in event. All you need to do is stop by a Verizon store with your current phone, in working condition of course. At the store, you can receive an immediate credit that you can apply as a down payment for a new phone. Or, you can use it as credit to be applied toward your Verizon bill.

The maximum trade-in amount of $312 will be offered to those trading in a Motorola DROID Turbo, Samsung Galaxy Note 5, 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.

If you upgrade on a current line, add a new line, or move to Verizon. you will be able to trade-in your working phone and buy a Samsung Galaxy S7, LG G5, 16GB Apple iPhone 6s or Motorola DROID Turbo 2 for $15 a month or less, over 24 months. In addition, those taking advantage of the deal will receive three free months of HBO Now. With this app you can view every episode of HBO's best shows on demand. You will also be able to watch HBO programming streamed live to your 4G LTE powered phone.

You are better of going to best buy and get the $200 gift card and try to use it towards the device.

They only offered $81 for my 64 GB droid turbo which is only a year and a half old. This deal is a joke

Yep. pretty much a gimmick to walk through the doors. Most peoplw still have those phones financed so they would just dig their hole deeper.

It's Verizon. So, they'll just keep adding fees along the way to make up the difference.

Actually Verizon doesn't have many fees at all. And their plans aren't super expensive, but more pricey that T-Mobile and Sprint. But you sacrifice data throughput/coverage going that route. It's all relative. This isn't that fantastic of a deal anyways, so there is no need for a "catch".

Upgrade fee. Suspend fee. Universal service fee. Verizon has as many little fees as all the others.
