Trade in an old phone, get $500 off the Google Pixel 4, and get a $200 prepaid Mastercard

They say the brightest flames burn for half as long. The Google Pixel 4 was Google's bright flame in the fall of 2019. The smartphone has its issues and maybe that has dimmed the burn a little, but it's still a very powerful device. If you'd like to try it out for yourself, you can get one at Verizon and save as much as $700 total through the deal. The steps for this deal include include buying a new Google Pixel 4 using a new line of service and Verizon's Unlimited plan, trading in an old phone that's eligible for up to $500 off your new phone, and switching to Verizon from another carrier, which will make you eligible for a prepaid Mastercard worth up to $200. Hitting all those marks will save you so much money, you won't worry about the bad stuff when you've got all that good stuff for such a small price.

Sign up at Verizon with a new line of service on a Verizon Unlimited plan and get $500 off applied over 24 months when you trade-in your old phone. If you're switching from another carrier, get $200 in a prepaid Mastercard sent to you within 8 weeks.

All of the Pixel 4 and 4 XL colors are available in this. You'll need to use the code NEWYEAR200 to redeem the Mastercard, and visit Verizon's rebate center for processing. To get the full value without a new line you'll need to trade in an iPhone 8 or newer, Samasung Galaxy S9 or newer, or even a Pixel 3. If you're adding a line, you can go as old as the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6. A full list of devices can be found on Verizon's site.
