1. Buy one Samsung Galaxy Note 20, get one free
One of Verizon’s signature promotions is the classic buy one, get one free, which is often applied to some of the hottest new smartphones on the market. The Samsung Galaxy Note 20 is the latest device to become available on this scheme, saving you a total of around $1,000.
On this and any of the BOGOF promotions, there’s always the caveat that you need to buy both phones and add a new unlimited line of service, That means this deal is best utilized with a friend or family member who also has their eyes on the latest and greatest from Samsung. You’ll then receive the value of the second Note 20, or another eligible phone, back in bill credits across the length of the new contract.

2. Save up to $850 on the iPhone 11 Pro family
If you’ve been itching to grab the iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max, Verizon is making the deal even sweeter right now. Big Red is offering either device for $850 off with a new line on the Above, Beyond, Do, Play, or Get Unlimited plans. The only catch is that you’ll have to trade in your current device if you want the full value.

If you don’t want to trade your current phone, you can still get $350 off the iPhone 11 Pro or Pro Max with a new line. You can also trade in your phone on an unlimited plan not listed above and you’ll get $550 off the cost of your device.
3. Grab an iPhone SE or Samsung Galaxy A51 for free
How does a free Apple iPhone SE sound? There are several great phones that are free right now from Verizon as long as you add a new line of service on a qualifying unlimited plan. You’ll pay for the device upfront, but you’ll receive bill credits for the full value of it over 24 months.
As well as the iPhone SE, you can also get the Samsung Galaxy A51 for free. Those are the two most notable examples, but the deal also applies to a few other devices such as the Moto G Power and the Galaxy A01. Hit the button below to see the full array.
4. Get the Pixel 4a and other phones for $10 per month or less
While not quite free like the phones above, there are Verizon deals on several devices right now which means that they’re either $5 or $10 per month, rather than the higher prices they usually carry. The standout option in this bracket is the Google Pixel 4a. It offers one of the best experiences on Android in a well-designed chassis, for one-third the price of modern flagships. This deal gets you it even cheaper at just $10 per month over the life of your 24-month contract.
5. Get up to $700 off top phones when you switch
On many more flagship smartphones that haven’t already featured in this Verizon deals list, you can trade in your old device and save as much as $700. When you add this to the $300 gift card you can get for switching to Verizon, that’s a total savings of up to $1,000. If you’re already a Verizon subscriber then you can upgrade with a trade-in and get up to $500 back instead.
How much you can save depends on whether you’re switching or upgrading, the device you’re trading in, and the phone that you want, so there’s an array of different iterations. Your best bet is to head to Verizon and select your ideal phone to see what offers are currently available.
6. Military, teachers, nurses, and first responder discounts
In an age where teachers, nurses, and other first responders are asked to work like never before, Verizon is giving back. The carrier offers a variety of perks and discounts for those who serve — from unlimited plans for $30 per month to hiring veterans, it’s an impactful way to say thank you. The plan discounts are valid on four-line plans, so your entire family can save.
It’s easy to sign up — simply verify your eligibility and enroll with your basic information. If you’re a service member looking for employment, you and your spouse can join the Verizon Talent Network and stay informed with the latest job postings.
7. College discounts — save up to $25 on unlimited
The upcoming school year is still a bit of a mystery, to say the least. Some schools plan to conduct in-person classes while others are making the move to online learning. Whatever the situation, Verizon has college students covered. Right now, you can save $10 per month with a single line of unlimited service or $25 on a pair of lines. All you have to do is verify your student status with UNiDAYS and then Verizon will hook you up.
The offer is good for online students as well, and you don’t have to add a new line of service. However, the offer is only good for a maximum of four years so super-seniors be warned.
8. Get up to $450 in Verizon eGift Cards when you switch
Verizon is jam-packed with great deals if you want a new device, but what if you’re happy with the one you’ve got? Well, you can get $450 money back in the form of a gift card just for bringing your current device to the network and activating an unlimited plan.
Unlike most deals, you’ll have to add a promo code at the rebate center to get your eGift Card. Claiming the card requires a promo code, which you’ll be provided with when you sign up. For a limited time, the reward also comes with a Verizon Stream TV for free.
