iPhone deals

(opens in new tab)

Apple iPhone 13: BOGO, or save up to $800 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
This week's Verizon deals on the iPhone 13 offer not one but two excellent promotions to choose from. First is a buy-one get-one free promo that will get you an additional device on the house when you pick up both with a new unlimited data line. If that doesn't float your boat, then there's also the option to trade-in for a discount of up to $800 on a single device (eligible with a new unlimited line). New customers can also get an additional $200 gift card if they switch over from another carrier.

Apple iPhone 12: free with a new unlimited data line at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Perhaps the best Verizon deal on the entire site is available on the humble iPhone 12. Right now, you don't even need a trade-in to get this device for free, just a new line on an unlimited data plan. While there are more recent devices available for free under the same terms (see below), we think this is a stellar option. Not only is this device still worth $699 new, but its modern design, powerful chip, and full 5G capability still make it a top choice as of 2022.

Apple iPhone 13 mini: free with a new unlimited data plan at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Alternatively, you could trade a bigger screen for a more powerful chipset and go for the iPhone 13 mini, which is also free with a new unlimited data line with this week's Verizon deals. In the past, we've seen this device go for as little as $5 per month without the need for a trade. If you're seeking a small-yet-powerful iPhone, this is a great option all around.

Apple iPhone SE 2022: free with a new unlimited data line at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Another amazing Verizon deal this week, you can get the brand new Apple iPhone SE 2022 on the house right now with a new line on an unlimited data plan. A close second to the iPhone 12 deal above, some may prefer to opt for this new budget device instead due to its speedier chip. At $499 new, it's slightly less valuable than the iPhone 12, however.

(opens in new tab)

Apple iPhone 13 Pro: BOGO, or save up to $800 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Verizon's deals on the iPhone 13 Pro offer the same promotions as on the standard 13 this week, with either the choice between a 'buy-one get-one' promo or a trade-in rebate of up to $800 on a single device. Both promotions are eligible with new lines on an unlimited data plan only and you'll also get up to $800 off a second device in this case, not a complete freebie. Note, the $200 bonus gift for new customers is also valid on this device.

(opens in new tab)

Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max: BOGO, or save up to $800 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
And you guessed it - those same excellent Verizon deals are also available on the most premium Apple device in the lineup right now, the iPhone 13 Pro Max. Either trade in for a rebate of up to $800 on a single device or pick up two devices on an unlimited plan to get $800 off one. Both are fine choices and new customers will also get an additional $200 gift card if they make the switch.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4: BOGO, or save up to $800 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
You can pre-order Samsung's latest high-end foldable with this week's Verizon deals - the stunning Galaxy Z Fold 4. Your options are essentially the same as on the other flagships at the carrier, with either a trade-in rebate of up to $800 on a single device or the option to get $800 off a second device when you pick them both up on an unlimited data plan. New customers can also get an additional $200 gift card if they switch over from another carrier.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4: BOGO, or save up to $800 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
And, if you prefer a clamshell design or a slightly cheaper option, consider this week's Verizon deals on the new Galaxy Z Flip 4 - also available for pre-order at the carrier this week. The promotions on this device are exactly the same as on the Fold 4, with the choice between a trade-in rebate of up to $800 on a single device or a buy-one-get-one saving of $800 if you get two devices on an unlimited data plan. New customers can also get an additional $200 gift card if they switch over from another carrier.

Google Pixel 6: save up to $800 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
There are no 'BOGO' options on the excellent Google Pixel 6 with this week's Verizon deals, although you can technically get this device for free with a trade-in and unlimited plan. Verizon are also throwing in a free 256GB memory upgrade to sweeten the deal this week, although it's worth noting we have seen the carrier give this device away for free before without the need for a trade-in. If you're cool with waiting, it's likely we'll see a return to this promotion at some point.

Google Pixel 6a: free with an unlimited data line at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Verizon may have discontinued its 'free without a trade-in' promo on the standard Google Pixel 6 but you can actually still find the exact same deal on the newer Google Pixel 6a. While slightly more budget-orientated than the standard Pixel 6, the 6A still features that powerful Tensor chip under the hood. Considering you don't have to trade in here this is a very decent option indeed for Android users.

(opens in new tab)

Google Pixel 6 Pro: save up to $800 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Prefer to opt for the more premium Google Pixel 6 Pro? You're looking at a maximum saving of up to $800 with an eligible trade-in and unlimited data plan, which is the usual deal for the big flagship devices. Note that new customers can also get an additional $200 gift card if they switch over from another carrier this week.

Samsung Galaxy S22: BOGO, or save up to $800 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Big trade-in rebates for the Galaxy S22 are back with this week's Verizon deals, as is an excellent 'buy-one get-one-free' promo. Depending on which you choose, you're either looking at a really decent single-line saving or a saving on a multiple-line setup. As with most big flagships, new customers can also get an additional $200 gift card if they switch over from another carrier. Note, this deal is also available on the Galaxy S22 Plus (opens in new tab).

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra: BOGO, or save up to $800 with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
If you're looking for a premium Android flagship, consider this week's Verizon deals on the stunning Galaxy S22 Ultra. As you'd expect, promotions on this device closely follow those on the other two devices in the series with a focus on trade-in rebates. With a maximum saving of up to $800 off with a new unlimited line, you're looking at cutting the exorbitant price on this device right down to size.

(opens in new tab)

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE: save up to $700 with an eligible trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Also available with this week's Verizon deals is the Galaxy S21 FE  - Samsung's latest mid-range smartphone. It's a little bigger than the standard S21 and a little smaller than the S21 Plus, which makes it a great middle-ground if you think a 6.4-inch size will appeal. Right now, you're looking at a maximum trade-in rebate of up to $700 on this device. Unfortunately, the old 'BOGO' promo isn't up for grabs this week.

Apple iPhone 13 mini: free with a new unlimited data plan at Verizon (opens in new tab)
This free iPhone 13 mini deal is perhaps the best iPhone offer at Verizon right now. The iPhone 13 mini packs Apple's latest tech in a smaller form factor than its larger flagship counterparts. In the past, we've seen this device go for as little as $5 per month without the need for a trade. If you're seeking a small-yet-powerful iPhone, hop on this deal as soon as you can. Oh, and if you're switching from another provider you'll score a $200 gift card, too — big win!

Apple iPhone 12: free with a new unlimited data line at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Hey, the iPhone 12 is still a top-choice handset in 2022. If the newer iPhone 13 mini is too tiny for your tastes, take advantage of this deal instead — you don't even need a trade-in, just a new line on an unlimited data plan. It's otherwise worth $699 new (same as the 13 mini above) and has a modern design, powerful chip, and full 5G capability. And if you're switching from another provider, you can score a $200 gift card in the process.

Apple iPhone SE 2022: free with a new unlimited data line at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Another amazing Verizon deal this week, you can get the brand new Apple iPhone SE 2022 on the house right now with a new line on an unlimited data plan. Some may prefer to opt for this new budget device instead due to its speedier chip. At $499 new, it's slightly less valuable than the iPhone 12, however.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G: free with a new unlimited data line at Verizon (opens in new tab)
Here's an older deal from Verizon but one that's well worth considering. The Samsung Galaxy S20 FE isn't the latest in the range anymore (see the S21 FE above) but it's still a stellar choice - even in 2022. Not only does it have a great camera and speedy processor but it's fully 5G compatible to boot. It's just simply a great Android flagship for those who don't want to fork out the extra for something like a Pixel 6 or Galaxy S22.

Note - to get the full 12 months free you'll need to sign up to the Play More plan and upwards, Start Unlimited customers will only score 6 months for free.

Depending on the device, that's actually enough to score some of the cheaper options for free.

Switch: get $500 when you bring your own device (opens in new tab)
Bring your own phone over to Verizon and they'll give you a redeemable $500 e-gift card to spend pretty much anywhere online.

The 9th generation 10.2 iPad is now on sale at Verizon and available with a nice little trade-in rebate if you pick it up with a plan. While the cheapest device in the range, this one is a great pick if you're looking for a quality do-it-all tablet for streaming, games, and productivity.

Apple iPad mini (2021): save $100, plus up to $180 with trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
And, if you prefer a smaller-sized tablet, that same excellent Verizon trade-in deal is also available on the latest Apple iPad Mini. Even better still, the carrier is offering an additional $100 saving if you pick up an LTE tablet via its online store. At just 8-inches, this tablet is much smaller and more bag-friendly than the other iPads. As you'd expect, however, it's still really powerful and features the same great design as its bigger siblings.

Apple Watch Series 7: up to $180 off with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
If you're looking for a new Apple Watch then you can trade-in for a nice little price cut with this week's Verizon deals. The Apple Watch 7 is the current king of the iOS wearables and a great pairing with any LTE plan if you're going to cut the connection to your phone. Note, we've regularly seen further price cuts for those buying these devices with iPhones recently, so it could be worth waiting for that promotion to return if you're looking for a bundle deal.

(opens in new tab)

Apple Watch SE: up to $180 off with a trade-in at Verizon (opens in new tab)
And that same trade-in rebate is also available on the Apple Watch SE this week - the more 'budget' orientated device of the two new Apple smartwatches. That lower price means a trade-in can potentially score you a watch for just $150 here, which is an absolute bargain when you consider how fully featured this smartwatch is.
