1. Get up to $700 off the OnePlus 8
If you let savings play a role in deciding your next phone, how can you pass up $700 off? That’s how much Verizon is offering if you switch to an unlimited plan and trade your current device in for the OnePlus 8. Switching to an unlimited plan with a new line of service nets you a $150 Verizon gift card, and your trade-in takes care of the other $550.

Unlike some trade-in deals, there is no lower tier of values for this one. You can trade most devices as old as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Pixel, and even the Droid Turbo 2 and get the full $550 value. Instead of the trade-in determining value, you just have to make sure that you’re on the Above, Beyond, Do, Play, or Get Unlimited plans.
2. Pick up select iPhones for free or BOGO
May is the month of Mother’s Day, and it’s alright if you still haven’t found the perfect gift. Verizon is offering the chance to make it a great holiday for both you and your mom.
When you pick up a new iPhone for your mom Verizon will give you a 64GB iPhone 11 for free when you add a new line of service. You’ll pretty much have no excuse not to stay in contact and you can even match your phone and your mom’s.
If you prefer the iPhone XS, it’s free at Verizon right now and you don’t have to buy one in order to get another one. All you have to do is switch to a Verizon unlimited plan and trade your phone in. As long as 64GB is enough storage, there’s no better price for an upgrade.
3. Buy one, get one of the same brand and a free Echo Dot
Free is still the best price, and Verizon has you covered if you want to upgrade multiple devices at a time. Right now, Verizon is offering buy one, get one deals on some of the latest devices with an unlimited plan. As long as you’re on the Above, Beyond, Do, Play, or Get Unlimited plans you can add a new line and save big.
The Google Pixel 4 and LG V60 ThinQ are two options for completely free second phones, or you can save $750 off a second Samsung Galaxy device. It’s a great way to save big and upgrade to your favorite brand.
To make the deal even sweeter, Verizon will also throw in an Amazon Echo Dot and a Smart Plug when you switch to Unlimited. As long as you port a phone in on a new line, Verizon will send you an email to redeem your free gift.

4. Grab a great phone at an amazing price, some as little as $15
Even if you don’t want to trade your phone in, you can still save a nice chunk of change on many new Verizon phones. For example, the Samsung Galaxy S10e is just $15 per month right now. On the Apple side, the brand-new iPhone SE is just $16.66 per month all day, every day.

You can also pick up some older devices like the iPhone 7 for free and the 7 Plus for just $5 per month. The Motorola Moto G7 and Samsung Galaxy A20 are also just $5 per month. They may not be the newest devices on the market anymore but they still make solid options as first phones or short-term replacements.
5. Save 30% when you buy three or more accessories
Your phone might be your favorite gadget, but the accessories you add on are what complete the experience. Whether you’re in the market for a case, a speaker, or even an Amazon Fire TV Stick, Verizon will give you 30% off when you pick up three or more full-price accessories.
Pretty much everything on the site is eligible except for AirPods, gift cards, and cellular-enabled smartwatches. Only you can decide what accessories you want, but we have plenty of Best Of lists to give you a few ideas. Here are a few that might help:
6. Skip the activation fees when you shop online
With much of the world quarantining to protect against the Coronavirus, many carriers have decided to encourage customers to shop from home. Verizon is offering to waive your activation fees across the board as long as you stick to shopping online. There’s no special link to follow in this case, everything on the site is eligible and you can just get down to shopping.
As always, do your part to stay safe in these uncertain times, and grabbing a new piece of technology will help the days pass just a little bit faster.
7. Get 50% off an Unlimited plan for your tablet
This one is for those of you who still love your tablets. You can either pick up a new tablet with options from both Apple and Samsung, or add an unlimited plan to the tablet you already have. All you have to do is switch your plan to the Do More or the Get More unlimited plans and save 50% on the price of your tablet plan. This can be up to $15 per month savings on the Get More plan.
8. Switch your phone and number and get a $250 prepaid Mastercard
This one is a deal for those of you who are looking to switch to Verizon but keep your device. You can bring the phone you already know and love with you and get a $250 prepaid Mastercard for your trouble. You can also get rewarded for switching your tablet over with a $100 prepaid Mastercard.
It’s as simple as using the promo codes BYOPHONE250 or BYOTABLET100 at the checkout, and you’ll even get to skip the activation fees.
9. Save on Apple Watch and iPad when you buy an iPhone
Our final Verizon deal allows you to go all-in on the Apple ecosystem. Once you pick up a new iPhone, you can get $300 off of any iPad and up to $150 off of any Apple Watch. While we may be Android Authority, it’s tough to pass up savings like this. The offer should be easy to combine with the above savings on a new iPhone, so you could potentially save over $1,000 total and pick up three brand-new devices.
However, the savings aren’t as easy as trade in an iPhone and save. If you want the full discount on the Apple Watch, you’ll have to trade in another one from Series 3, 4, or 5. Likewise, the iPad offer includes $200 for a trade-in and an additional $100 with your iPhone purchase.
