If you're on the hunt for the best Verizon deals, you've come to the right place. One of the biggest wireless carriers in the world, Verizon offers loads of impressive deals and promotions on a regular basis, many of which could result in you getting a free phone, discounted monthly plan, or some other unexpected prize. Below you'll find the best Verizon offers of the month broken down into simple categories so you know exactly what you're getting and why. 

These offers aren't just for outdated devices either: we're talking about deals on top-of-the-line Android phones like the Samsung Galaxy S22, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Google Pixel 6. Verizon is known for its variety of great plans and massive 5G network, so it shouldn't be too difficult to track down the best Verizon plan for you — which means you can spend more time selecting your dream phone. 

Naturally, you'll need to make some sort of change to your wireless service to take advantage of most of these deals. For example, if you're planning to switch from a competing carrier or add a new line, Verizon is going to treat you like royalty. Either way, let's dive into a few of the best deals that the carrier has on offer right now. 

Free phones

Google Pixel 6a: $499.99 FREE with select Unlimited plans (opens in new tab)

The Google Pixel 6a (opens in new tab) isn't even out yet and Verizon is already giving them away for free. This brand new mid-range smartphone — set to be released on July 28th — comes with many of the features that make the standard Google Pixel 6 great, just with a lower price tag. 

Right now, if you add a new line with an eligible Unlimited plan, Verizon will hook you up with a 6a preorder at no cost to you.

Samsung Galaxy S22: $799.99 FREE with eligible trade-in and any Unlimited plan (opens in new tab)

This deal gives you up to $800 in promo credits over 36 months if you pick up a Samsung Galaxy S22 and send Verizon an eligible old or broken phone. $800 is enough to cover the full cost of an S22, or you can use that money to seriously discount an S22 Plus or S22 Ultra. Just make sure you add a new line with any Unlimited plan when checking out.

Trade in an old or broken device and add a new line, and Verizon will give you up to $699.99 over 36 months, which just so happens to be the exact amount you need to purchase the 128GB version of the smartphone.

Samsung Galaxy S20 FE: $599.99 FREE with new line (opens in new tab)

Firmly planted at the top of our list is this Verizon deal that could get you a free Galaxy S20 FE when you add a new line with any Unlimited plan. Unlike many of the free phone deals from Verizon, this offer requires no trade-in, making it one of the simplest (and most enticing) deals of the bunch. 

The S20 FE impressed us with its all-day battery life, beautiful 120Hz display, and solid 32MP front camera with 3x optical zoom.
