    Buy 1 phone get 1 free

    Alaynea35

      My phone and my husband's phone are both up for upgrades. My question is...

       Can we both get different phones that come with buy 1 get 1 free?

        We do not want the same phone but our children (grown)

       and on their own could use the other phones we get.  Also Verizon customers.

            All of the buy one get one deals I've seen from Verizon are for the same phone. And you do not need to be a new customer, just both eligible for upgrade. Only my experience.

              the best way to attempt this is via phone with cs

              i have done it in the past

              you pay for the higher priced of the 2 phones

              it depends on your history with vzw

              you can only get phone for eligable lines on your account

               

              ex: you have 2 lines the phone a and phone b are b1g1

              they may give you 1 phone a and 1 phone b

               

              what you cannot do is get 2 phone a and 2 phone b and give 1 of each to someone on another account

                Are your children on your account, or do they have their own accounts?

                 

                If they are on your account, are they eligible for an upgrade?

                 

                The way Verizon's Buy One Get One Free promotion works, is that both of the phones you get have to be activated on a new 2yr contract on your account. If you do not have 2 lines eligible for upgrade at the time of purchase, you MAY add a new line of service to your Family Plan with a new 2yr contract to qualify.

                  when was the last time you did it?

                   

                  both being eligible isnt free...

                   

                  If only one line is eligible you will NOT get 2 phones.

                   

                  buy on get one free is only for NEW customers... it encourages a person wanting a phone to get 2 lines by giving them a FREE phone.

                    Feb. 2011 bought intensity II for $29.99, got one free. I had 2 lines that were eligible for upgrade, not new lines.

                      based on that you are not eligable now

                        Correct, but I'm not looking for the deal just sharing my experience.

                          ? both being eligible means I bought one and got one free.
