Want to know what the best discreet deal on the entire Verizon site is right now? In our humble opinion, it’s not on the newer iPhone 13, but on the slightly older (but still good) iPhone 12.
The carrier is currently donating this device (which is still valued at $699) for free with a new line on an unlimited data plan (opens in new tab) – an absolutely amazing business that benefits from a low barrier to entry.
Why do we say this? Well, most of Verizon’s best deals (opens in new tab) at any point in the year usually revolve around trading an old device. Now, for example, you can save $800 on iPhone 13 (opens in new tab), Galaxy S22 and even the Google Pixel 6 Pro, but only delivering that old device. It’s great to recycle, of course, but some people just don’t have an old device that can fetch that value in a trade.
That’s where this ‘free’ iPhone 12 deal at Verizon comes in – you’ll skip device payments without the need for an annoying switch, as long as you’re choosing one on an eligible unlimited plan. These can be quite pricey in themselves (about $45 to $90 a month over 36 months), but it will save you $699 on device payments.
Note that this Verizon deal on the iPhone 12 is likely to stick through the weekend, but it looks like one of the carrier’s most popular options right now. The device itself is on hold until the end of June at the moment, so we recommend ordering sooner rather than later if you want faster delivery.
