Verizon offers up to $1000 off a new iPhone 13 with a trade-in

It’s iPhone season, so of course, the major carriers are all competing for your wallet. Verizon is coming out swinging with a promotion offering up to $1,000 off a new iPhone 13 series device with select trade-ins, even if your trade-in device is broken. You just need one of their premium plans to get top dollar.

Verizon’s “Get More”, “Do More”, “Play More”, “Above”, and “Beyond” plans are considered “premium” plans. Their other unlimited plans get the lower values for their trade-ins.

Plans and promos are getting pretty complicated these days, so here’s a breakdown of devices and their values. When buying a new iPhone 13, 13 Pro, or 13 Pro Max, trading in a Tier 1 device will net you $800 off if you’re on a premium plan or $400 off if you’re on another unlimited plan; Tier 2 devices are worth $400 for premium plans and $200 for non-premium plans. For purchases of an iPhone 13 Mini, Tier 1 devices are worth $700 and Tier 2 devices are worth $350 on premium plans.
