Verizon will hook you up with a gift card if you spend at least $100 on select accessories

Verizon will hook you up with a gift card if you spend at least $100 on select accessories
Verizon isn't generally known for its generosity when it comes to either service rates or smartphone prices, but if you're currently in the market for a smartwatch, some decent headphones, a Bluetooth speaker, a smart speaker, Moto Mod, or various other accessories, the nation's largest wireless network might just be the best place to score a solid discount.

Technically, we're not talking about outright savings on any of the items listed above, but for a limited time, spending between $99.99 and $199.99 on accessories at Big Red will make you eligible for a $20 e-gift card, while $200+ expenses (in one go) automatically qualify for a $50 digital coupon. There is one important thing you need to do after ordering the stuff you want to pair with your smartphone, namely submit proof of purchase online within 30 days to actually receive your free e-gift card.

You can shop for accessories both online and offline, with the list of eligible products including everything from a $200 pair of Beats Powerbeats3 wireless earphones to a $180 kid-friendly Verizon GizmoWatch, $150 Ultimate Ears Boom 3 Bluetooth speaker, $130 Google Home Hub, $50 Google Home Mini, and $40 JBL Clip 3 portable Bluetooth waterproof speaker.

You can even get the free $20 or $50 e-gift card after buying a discounted accessory, like the $200 Fitbit Ionic smartwatch (which is normally priced at $250), $180 Fitbit Versa (reduced from $200), $140 Fitbit Charge 3 SE, $120 JBL Charge 4 Bluetooth speaker, or $80 JBL Flip 4. And then you have those items designed specifically for use alongside a certain device or family of devices, like the $200 Insta-Share Projector Moto Mod, $150 Smart Speaker with Alexa Moto Mod, $80 JBL SoundBoost 2 Moto Mod, $50 Logitech Crayon for iPads, $45 LifeProof FRE case for the Galaxy S8, and a number of other protective accessories for the Pixel 2 XL, Moto Z2 Force, Z2 Play, and Galaxy Note 8.

That's quite an... eclectic roster, and this looks like a pretty good deal if you don't mind shopping at Verizon a second time to use your special gift card.
