Verizon will give you up to $650 in credit if you switch to the ‘better network’
The numbers two, three and four (especially three) of the US mobile carrier landscape have been ruthlessly hunting for disgruntled competitor subscribers, aiming their switch-incentivizing campaigns in particular at Verizon.
Though well ahead of T-Mobile and Sprint in user counts, and unlikely to see its domination challenged by AT&T very soon either, Big Red might be starting to feel the heat, kicking off a hard to resist network swap offer.
Like a “not-so-cool holiday sweater”, you can now ditch the “wrong network” without worrying too much of the consequences. That’s because, whether or not you’re up for early termination fees and device or lease buyouts, VZW will give you up to $650 per line closed at a rival operator, no questions asked, no strings attached.
Well, a couple of strings are attached in all honesty, including your commitment to Verizon for at least six months, and willingness to trade in an existing phone in decent working condition previously activated on a different carrier.
The up to $650 payoff will be made on a prepaid card and obviously includes your device trade-in value, letting you cover monthly plan settlements once you purchase a 4G LTE-capable Verizon handheld. In addition to this, you can qualify for a complimentary 2GB bonus data a month for life on XL or XXL arrangements setting you back $80 and $100 respectively every 30 days for 12 and 18GB web traffic.
