In the announcement Verizon mentions that this works for a family of four, with up to $2,600 in pre-paid cards that you can use like cash. For this deal to work you need to port your number to Verizon, buy a 4G LTE smartphone on a Device Payment Plan and trade in your old smartphone. The trade in needs to be in working order and it must be worth more than $0. Shoppers must keep the new line or lines active for six months.

The value of the card can be up to $650 depending how much you still owe on your current smartphone or up to $350 depending what your ETF is to leave your current carrier.

Shoppers must provide the last bill from the old carrier to get a Verizon Wireless Pre-paid Visa. This can be used anywhere Visa is accepted. It can take 14 days to get the Verizon Pre-paid Visa after processing, so there is a chance you will need to pay off your old device at the carrier with another means and use this Visa elsewhere.

It is possible to use the Visa to pay your online bill and you can use it at many stores that accept Visa cards.

Shoppers can use this Verizon deal online, in store or over the phone with a Verizon agent. If you go in store the trade in portion can be completed immediately instead of online after you buy your new phone.

Shoppers can buy any 4G LTE smartphone on a Device Payment Plan to be eligible. This includes the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus as well as the best Android phones of 2015.
