Verizon Wireless set to offer 50% off iPhone X/8/Plus with trade

LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 21: A Verizon store is seen April 21, 2011 in the Westwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. Verizon announced today that it activated 2.2 million iPhones during the first quarter, helping the company more than triple its profit from a year ago. The company reported earnings of $1.4 billion on revenue of $27 billion for the quarter. Profit grew more than three-fold from the $443 million the telecom company earned during the same period last year. (Photo by Eric Thayer/Getty Images)

Verizon is taking up to 50% off iPhone X, Pixel 2 and other popular smartphone devices with eligible trade-in starting this week. Those that opt for Google’s flagship device will enjoy a nice bundle that includes two months of YouTube TV, a Google Home mini, and Chromecast. Additional discounts are also available on iPhone 8/Plus, Galaxy S9, and more.

Let’s start with the Android offers. Google’s Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are both eligible for up to 50% off discounts when select devices are traded-in (more details in a moment). That brings the price down to as low as $325. Add in the YouTube above, Chromecast and Google Home Mini offer, and you’re getting quite the value. That’s over $160 worth of freebies.

The partnership between Verizon and Google is unique in a few different ways. While we regularly see trade-in offers from various service providers, what we’re getting today brings the value aspect to a whole different level.

While the Google Pixel 2 offer is available today, Verizon won’t be kicking off its iPhone discounts until tomorrow, April 5th. Much like the Android deals above, you’ll need to trade-in an eligible device to knock the starting price down to around $500 on Apple’s flagship device. That list of smartphones that can be traded in includes iPhone 8/Plus, 7/Plus, 6S Plus, GS8/Plus, Google Pixel/XL, Pixel 2/XL, Note 8, LG G6, LG V30, Moto Z2 Force, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Moto Z Force.
