Verizon Wireless is kicking off the holiday season, but only in the southern region of the U. S. The new in-store trade-in program lets prospective customers bring a used phone into any Verizon store or kiosk and get instant credit for a new phone with service.

The program in in effect in NC, SC, TN, GA, AL, FL, MS, AR, OK, TX, and LA, and works as follows:

  • Customer brings used phone on any carrier into Verizon store
  • Evaluation of the phone is conducted by Verizon rep
  • Up to $300 (gift card) is offered for trading in the used phone for any purchase or upgrade

“The new In Store Trade-In Program values your existing device for use toward the purchase of a new device,” said Keith Gladhill, director - retail sales Houston, Verizon Wireless. “With this program, customers can trade in their used device and receive a trade-in gift card instantly, to purchase a new smartphone, tablet or accessories. There is no waiting or sending in your old device. It is simple, secure and instant.”

Those trading in their old phone can donate their no-longer-used cell phones to the long-running HopeLine® program, which collects devices and accessories to benefit victims of domestic violence.

    You're more likely to get $300 if you bring in a Possum!

      I wonder if I would get even 300 cents for my old RAZR (still works). :)

    Yea right if you think verizon is offering this great deal. It was announced this morning on amazon facebook page that you could get any new phone for a penny with any carrier, yes that includes verizon. Well the new razor would be a penny for new customers only. And what do you think the cost for existing customers is: yes you got it $299. and you think this is a deal. verizon probably offers you a whoppong one cent for your phone. give me a break. i plan to shop around for a new carrier their cell service is terrible and customer service is even worse. find something better and real to blog about.

  • That $300 is something that they're using in promoting other services,

    like Verizon FIOS tv/internet/phone, where they're offering that service for $89/month and also throwing in the $300 ( on a credit card).

    So, it looks like the $300 is a throwaway incentive, which doesn't really cost them anything, and makes them look good while gaining new customers.
