Verizon's latest set of cell phone deals include newly increased trade-in rebates for those looking to upgrade - up to $800 off on the latest flagship devices (opens in new tab), in fact.

The iPhone 13 (opens in new tab), 13 Pro (opens in new tab), Galaxy S21 Ultra (opens in new tab), and Google Pixel 6 (opens in new tab) devices are just a few of the top-end phones available via the carrier right now, with these increased maximum rebates for those already on the network.

While big trade-in rebates of up to $1,000 aren't an uncommon sighting at Verizon, these kinds are savings are typically reserved for new customers who jump ship from one of the other big carriers. In short, existing customers are usually left with the short end of the stick - with average trade-in rebates ranging anywhere from $400 to $500. 

While those sorts of savings aren't usually anywhere near the amount needed to cover the cost of a device, today's upgrading savings are, in the case of cheaper devices like the iPhone 13 mini or Galaxy S21. Even if you go with a more expensive flagship like the 13 Pro or Galaxy S21 Ultra, a discount of $700 will drastically reduce the normally eye-watering cost of these devices.

As always, with the best Verizon deals (opens in new tab), to be eligible for these discounts, you'll need to be on one of the carrier's more pricey post-paid plans. You'll also need to be trading in a fairly recent device to get the full discount too, so bear that in mind. On the plus side, you don't technically need a new line here, which makes this an excellent option if you're already an unlimited user and want to upgrade to the latest generation of 5G smartphones.
