——————————————————————————
If you have any AMEX business cards be sure to check this out. I’m sitting on 5 offers of $150 off each, maybe it’s time to switch from Verizon to AT&T :D

It seems like you can use this for AT&T wireless bills for monthly service or for new phones that are billed to your account.

Deals like this (and the others seen in the related posts above) are what make my AMEX card’s annual fee turn into annual refunds!

Step 1: Login to your AMEX account on your computer or via the iPhone app.

Step 2: Click on any of your cards to go to the activity page

Step 3: Scroll down and click on the “AMEX Offers For You” tab.

Step 4: Check to see if you have an offer for $150 off $150 at AT&T Wireless.  You will have to click on “See more offers” to view all of your offers.

If you also have multiple cards with the offer don’t rush to save the offer to your account!  Open up the Offers page for each card in a separate tab in the same browser.  Then go quickly between the tabs to save the offer to each of your targeted cards.  Otherwise once you save the offer to one card it disappears from your other cards.

You can also register your secondary cards for their own AMEX login and register each of those cards as well.  Sometimes secondary cards registered on their own account will have different offers than the primary card, so it’s worth creating accounts for them to check for offers that don’t appear on the primary account.

Unfortunately my secondary cards did not have this offer.

Terms:
-Offer valid for wireless bill pay for AT&T AutoPay or one-time payment only.
-Statement credit will appear on your American Express billing statement within 90 days after April 15, 2015.
-Enrollment limited.
-In order to be eligible for the offer, you must enroll your Card and use that Card to pay your wireless bill or other service charges online directly with AT&T at att.com/smallbusiness or by phone at 800-331-0500.
-Purchases for equipment or prepaid, U-verse, web hosting, or wireline services that do not appear on your AT&T wireless bill are excluded from this offer.
-Your payment must be in the amount of $150 or more in a single transaction and completed by April 15, 2015.
-Payments at retail locations or via third party resellers do not qualify.
=Statement credit may be reversed if qualifying transaction is returned/cancelled.
-POID: BKMX:0001

Don’t have an offer in your account? You can chat with AMEX and ask them to honor the deal for you as well, YMMV!  The promotion code is the POID listed above.

VERIZON WILL HONOR UPGRADE GLITCH!

Monday, October 21st, 2013

Update, 10/12: 6 iPhones showed up on my doorstep and now they’re on their way to eBay buyers nationwide.  Thanks for the gift VZW!
Were you able to take advantage of this offer? Hit the comments!

—————————————————–

Originally posted on 09/30:

I posted over the weekend that I was able to upgrade the phones on my Verizon grandfathered plan with unlimited data and advised people to do the same as long as their website was allowing it.

While there were many naysayers in the comments saying that it would cause people to lose their unlimited data or that people would be charged full price if they tried to activate their phones I maintained that that was all false and would be illegal.

Some people even got tweets, emails, and calls from Verizon asking them if they wanted to lose their unlimited data to get a phone upgrade but Verizon has thought better of that and will be honoring the phone upgrades from this past weekend! Here is the statement from Verizon:

Over the past weekend, there was a software issue involving some orders for customers seeking to upgrade their devices. A number of customers who were upgrading devices were able to maintain an unlimited monthly data feature while paying a subsidized price.

Verizon Wireless will honor those orders that were approved this past weekend, allowing those customers to retain their unlimited plans for the duration of their contract and receive their new device.

Verizon Wireless corrected this software issue today (9/30). The company no longer offers unlimited data plans and customers who want to retain existing unlimited data plans, must pay full retail price for a replacement phone.

Kudos to Big Red for honoring their website’s promise and congrats to all those who got an upgrade without losing their unlimited data plans!

Hurry! Verizon Website Allowing Device Upgrades On Unlimited Data Plans!

Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Update: My email confirmations are coming through confirming that unlimited data is still on each line!

vzw4
——————————————————————————————–

I had Sprint from 2001 until 2011 when they decided that my plan was too good and they told me to switch to a current plan or another carrier.

My family settled on an 8 line Verizon plan with 5 of those lines having unlimited data. Sure the price was higher, but the customer service and cellular service was light-years better than Sprint.  A few weeks later they stopped offering unlimited data.  They grandfathered in those who already had unlimited data with the caveat that they would have to pay full price for a new phone.

And indeed when I tried upgrading my line on the Verizon site it said I would have to switch to a 2GB data plan for the same price as the unlimited plan or switch to the alternative data share plans if I wanted subsidized upgrade pricing.

Rather that paying $700 for a phone I upgraded my Galaxy Nexus to a Galaxy S4 (which is just an awesome phone) last month via a cute workaround. I did that by using the upgrade on one of the 3 lines on our plan that didn’t have unlimited data.  That line was eligible for upgrade pricing and then I simply activated the phone on my line with unlimited data.

Right now however Verizon’s website is allowing anyone on a grandfathered unlimited plan to upgrade their device without losing their unlimited data plan.  I just upgraded all of the remaining lines on our plan to iPhones.  Sure I spelled out dozens of reasons why my S4 kicks the iPhone on the DD Facebook group, but there’s no denying that I can make a quick few grand thanks to the sheeple overpaying for iPhones on ebay right now.  I’m not going to open ‘em-they’re going straight to market.

Be sure to take lots of screenshots showing that the website is allowing to keep your unlimited data plan and hope that they will honor these purchases. Don’t dawdle, this isn’t likely to last too long…

Samsung Galaxy Phones On Sale At Amazon Wireless

Thursday, February 21st, 2013

The Galaxy line of phones are awesome.  A removable battery plays no small part of that as you can always have a charged battery with an inexpensive separate battery charger and never again have to plug your phone into the wall.  With the huge screens on Galaxy phones along with Google Maps you’ll also never need to buy another GPS.  And Android Jelly Bean’s incredible predictive Google Now service kicks Siri to the curb.

The Galaxy S4 will likely come out soon, so if you want the latest and greatest you may want to wait for it.  Though it will start off with a much heftier price tag than the prices below.

Sprint:
Samsung Galaxy Nexus: New customer: $0.01, Add-a-line: $39.99, Upgrade: $39.99
Samsung Galaxy S III: New customer: $0.01, Add-a-line: $99.99, Upgrade: $99.99
Samsung Galaxy Note II: New customer: $69.99, Add-a-line: $169.99, Upgrade: $199.99

Verizon:
Samsung Galaxy S III: New customer: $49.99, Add-a-line: $49.99, Upgrade: $99.99
Samsung Galaxy Note II: New customer: $149.99, Add-a-line: $149.99, Upgrade: $189.99

AT&T:

Ending Today: Verizon Double The Data.

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

If you have Verizon and are thinking of getting a smartphone or are thinking of switching to Verizon, today is the last day to signup for the double the data promotion.

Currently Amazon has the Galaxy Nexus for just $0.01 for new customers or new family lines! It runs the latest and greatest 4.04 Ice Cream Sandwich stock Android software.  It will unlock at the sight of your face and can instantly sync the open tabs, bookmarks, and settings from Chrome on your computer to Chrome on your phone, among many other features.

Verizon sells the Galaxy Nexus for $199.99 to new customers, so this is a discount of $200 off of their pricing!

The Galaxy S3 is coming out later this month, but by then it will be too late to signup for double the data.  If you order today though you should still be able to exchange phones for the next 14, or possibly 30 days via Amazon.  Note that the Galaxy S3 runs TouchWiz and isn’t a pure Google Android phone like the Galaxy Nexus is.

Normally Verizon charges $30 for 2 GB of data, but until today they will give 4GB of data for the same $30. The promotion is only on 4G LTE smartphones, not phones running on the older 3G data network (sorry Apple fanbois!)

During the Amazon checkout process you will be able to select 4GB of data for the price of 2GB, $30/month.

A data plan is required to activate any smartphone on Verizon.

Since I got my awesome Galaxy Nexus in December (a big upgrade from my Palm Centro :D) I’ve averaged about 3GB of data per month, so although I’m on an old grandfathered unlimited plan, if you are thinking of getting a smartphone with 4G LTE you definitely will want those extra 2 GB.

Fair warning though, once you have a phone like this you will never be able to go back.  The integration with Google is fantastic, internet browsing on the massive screen is perfect, and just the GPS app alone, which is awesome for driving and for walking directions when in unfamiliar places, is worth the price of admission.  Seriously Garmin, you guys need to learn how to do POIs from Google!

While tethering on my laptop via the Galaxy Nexus (free with a free app!) I typically get speeds of about 15 Mbps down and 8 Mbps up which is awesome and is another reason to lock in those 2 extra GB of data!

Verizon Double The Data Promotion.

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

Update 2, 02/12: For a limited time the 4GB of data for the price of 2GB promotion is back!
Plus Amazon has the Galaxy Nexus for just $99.99 for new customers or new family lines!

>Update: 01/15: This promotion will end tonight.

If you have Verizon and are thinking of getting a smartphone or are thinking of switching to Verizon, today is the last day to signup for the double the data promotion.

Normally Verizon charges $30 for 2 GB of data, but until today they will give 4GB of data for the same $30.  The promotion is only on 4G LTE smartphones, not phones running on the older 3G data network (sorry Apple fanbois!)

A data plan is required to activate any smartphone on Verizon.

Since I got my awesome new Galaxy Nexus phone a month ago I’ve used about 3GB of data, so although I’m on an old grandfathered unlimited plan, if you are thinking of getting a smartphone with 4G LTE you definitely will want those extra 2 GB.

While tethering on my laptop via the Galaxy Nexus I typically get speeds of about 15 Mbps down (but have hit speeds as high as 90 Mbps down) and 8 Mbps up, significantly higher than my home internet connection, another reason those extra GBs will come in handy.

Amazon Wireless sells the Galaxy Nexus (running Google’s polished new Ice Cream Sandwich Android 4.0 OS that will unlock at the sight of your face and will instantly sync the tabs, bookmarks, and settings from Chrome on your computer to Chrome on your phone) for just $229.99 for new or upgrading customers, $70 less than directly from Verizon, and Amazon also has even heavier discounts on other VZW 4G LTE smartphones like the Droid Razr and HTC Rezound.

Verizon Galaxy Nexus For Just $199.99 From Wirefly With Upgrade Or New Line!

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Update: Now $229.99

Verizon Wirefly Linky

Sells for $299.99 with upgrade/new line directly from Verizon.

The Galaxy Nexus finally drew me away from my trusty old Palm Centro. I’ve been a Palm OS guy since I was 16, so Android is a pretty big switch for me. The “GNex” is the only device that can currently run Android’s sweet new Ice Cream Sandwich operating system.  So far so good, it’s not perfect, but it sure is light-years ahead of the Centro I’ve been carrying around since 2007.  And it’s better than any other phone on the market that I’ve compared it to.

Through 01/15/12 only, Verizon is offering 4GB for the price of 2GB of data, so if you are considering switching to Verizon or getting a data phone, you should do that as soon as possible as you’ll want those extra GBs of data when flying on VZW’s incredible 4G LTE network!

Today Only! Verizon Motorola Droid RAZR 4G LTE Android Phone For Just $111.11 With A New Plan From Verizon!

Friday, November 11th, 2011

Verizon Motorola Droid RAZR 4G Android Phone

Verizon just released the Droid RAZR today. They are selling it for $299.99 with a new contract, but for today only (11/11/11) Amazon is selling it to new customers for just $111.11.

Plus for a limited time only Verizon is doubling the data allowance.  For $30 a month you now get 4GB of data usage per month instead of 2GB, and as long as you enroll during this promo period you will keep the 4GB plan for life!

The Droid RAZR is an ultra-thin Android smartphone.  For comparison the iPhone 4S is .37 inches thick and the Droid RAZR is a diminutive .27 inches thick.

“Slice through multiple tasks simultaneously with a dual–core 1.2 GHz processor and 1 GB of LP DDR2 RAM, and enjoy brilliant optics with the 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Advanced display. A rear-facing 8-megapixel camera also allows you to capture stunning still photos and Full HD 1080p videos while on the go. It’s also outfitted with a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera with HD 720p video recording for on-the-go chats.
With 16 GB of onboard storage and an included 16 GB microSD card, you’ll be able to keep loads of photos and videos directly on the device–and you can use optional microSD memory cards up to 32 GB for even more storage potential.”

Thoughts On Old Sprint Plans And Verizon Unlimited Data…

Monday, July 4th, 2011

The last day to get an unlimited data plan on Verizon is this Wednesday, July 6th.  This comes after AT&T got rid of their unlimited plans last year.  The new tiered plans start at $29.99 for 2GB, the same price they charge now for unlimited data usage.

It’s official, unlimited data is going the way of the Dodo.

Smartphones all require a data plan so if you will ever want one you probably want to add the unlimited data plan to your line now.  The highly anticipated Dual-Core 4G LTE Motorola Droid Bionic and Samsung Function/Galaxy S2 Android devices are expected to be released very soon, but by then it will be too late to add the unlimited data plan.  If you have the unlimited data option though you will be grandfathered with it, so you will be able to switch phones and sign new contracts while retaining the unlimited data option…

I remember back in 2002 when Sprint launched their 3G service with tiered data plans.  Previously they just had a 2G unlimited mobile web option.  Not too many people signed up for the 3G “Vision” service because they were apprehensive about a tiered structure for a service that didn’t really exist before.  Sprint quickly brought the price of 3G service down to just $10 for unlimited data and they made unlimited data free for all additional lines.  Included back then (in the pre-SMS days) was also free PCS messaging and picture messaging (I actually had the tiny VGA camera that plugged into the A500, Sprint’s 3G launch phone).  With options like first-incoming minute free, and 6pm nights those were some of the best plans ever released.

Sprint has regretted those generous free and clear plans for many years now.  They treat free and clear customers, by definition their oldest and most loyal customers, as the scum of the earth.  They aren’t allowed to have any smartphones.  Does Sprint not realize just how much money they throw away by not just offering a $20 per line option to allow smartphones on the older plans?  Instead they would rather force everyone onto their much more expensive everything plans.  (They buckled and do allow SERO customers to have a $10 smartphone add-on or $20 4G add-on, but they still don’t let free and clear or fair and flexible customers do the same)  In an ideal world that may work, but looking at their financial numbers you can see those people are just bailing to other phone companies or to more and more competitive prepaid plans.  Sprint boasts about even less profitable prepaid growth as they bleed out more valuable post-paid customers.

I was a Sprint customer since 2001 when I went away to yeshiva in Los Angeles, 10 years with the same company!  I went through the bad times of the worst customer service in the industry and constant billing mistakes.  My reward for all that loyalty?  Last month Sprint decided they had enough of my plan and gave me 30 days notice that my plan (in middle of a contract, don’t you love how they can break the contract when they feel like it without any penalty) would be terminated.  Others on the DansDeals Forums have reported that the same thing is happening to them.  An obnoxious contact in their legal department will call you one day, treat you like garbage, and then unceremoniously throw you off your plan.

Everything is with divine providence though.  Verizon was all too happy to welcome me into their arms with a 22% negotiated discount.  I’ll finally be able to get a new phone as Sprint hasn’t let me get a more advanced phone than the Palm Centro back in 2007.  (They did manage to stave off my new phone addiction while having a Centro from 2007-2011, as from 2001-2007 I went from a Motorola Talkabout>Samsung a500>Samsung i330>Samsung i500>Samsung i550>Treo 700p>Treo 755p>Palm Centro) Verizon had no problems letting me use a cheap Palm Centro for a month or 2 until they release the Droid Bionic or the Samsung Function.  I’m not under any contract now as I brought my own phone to the table and when those phones are released I can sign a 2 year deal and get the new customer pricing.  Plus I can add unlimited data now so that I’ll be grandfathered and have the ability to fully use my next phone without worrying about exceeding the data usage.  At least Sprint decided to cut me off at an opportune time!  And yes, Verizon customer service and coverage really is that much better than Sprint.  As they say, you get what you pay for!

Enough rambling for now…have a happy 4th everyone!
