Best Verizon New Customer Deals: Galaxy S23, iPhone and More

If you’re thinking of switching cell carriers, take a look at the deals Verizon is offering new customers. You can snag some perks like a new phone, bonus subscription plans, or accessories for the phone you already have. It might be worth your time to switch carriers just for the new customer perks. Below we’ve gathered up some of the best Verizon new customer deals happening right now.

We love the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra, so much so that we gave it a perfect 10 out of 10 rating. The other models have a good chance of making it onto the best Android phones of 2023 list. When you buy one of them on a Verizon plan, you can choose between three different discounts: $230 off the Samsung Galaxy Tab S9, $95 off the Samsung Galaxy Watch 6, or $130 off the Samsung Galaxy Buds2 Pro. The Samsung Galaxy S23 will cost you $860, or just under $24 per month if you use a Verizon financing plan.

Discount on an iPad when you buy an iPhone 14 Pro

The iPhone 14 Pro is the newest and fanciest iPhone on the market. We loved the phone when it first launched. If you’re an Apple fan, it’s still the best phone out there. Unfortunately there is no deal to get a new iPhone 14 Pro, but if you opt for this smartphone you will get a nice bonus. If you buy the 14 Pro you get a $280 discount on an iPad of your choice. You will have to pay for a data plan for the iPad, and your iPhone 14 Pro will need to have the Unlimited plan.

Free iPhone SE (3rd Gen)

The 2022 release of the Apple iPhone SE is yours for free when you sign up for a new 5G data plan on Verizon — no trade-ins required. It’s the best small smartphone in our list of the best smartphones with a 4.7-inch Liquid Retina display, but it doesn’t sacrifice performance as it’s powered by Apple’s A15 Bionic chip that’s also found in the iPhone 13 line and pre-installed with iOS 15. The latest iPhone SE is equipped with a single 12MP rear sensor and 7MP selfie camera, which are boosted by Apple’s software to enable better photographs.

Free NFL Sunday Ticket with a new phone purchase

If you’re a die hard football obsessive, you want NFL Sunday Ticket. It’s the best way to guarantee that you’re watching all the games, not just the nationally televised ones and your local team. NFL Sunday Ticket is expensive though, and if you don’t have cable you might wonder how you can access it. The answer is YouTube TV, and Verizon is willing to give you a free subscription if you buy and new phone and opt for the Unlimited plan. The subscription would cost you $449 for the 2023-2024 season, so this is a great deal.

Does Verizon offer free phones to new customers?

You bet, but temper your expectations — you’re not likely to get a brand new iPhone 12 Pro Max for free just by signing up. However, Verizon new customer deals and sign-up offers are a good way to score a more basic phone for free (like the 2020 iPhone SE or one of the Samsung Galaxy A-series devices, to name just a couple popular examples) which is a good option if you just want a solid handset and don’t care about the latest premium flagships sporting all the bells and whistles.

That’s not the say that there aren’t cheap Verizon deals on those phones, though. In fact, carrier sign-up discounts like these Verizon new customer deals are arguably the best and simplest way to snag one of those new flagships for a low price. These markdowns usually come in the form of bill credits and are only offered with unlimited plans, requiring you to buy the phone first and then get a discount on your bill. That might not sound as enticing as a standalone price cut, but that’s just psychological — you’re still getting the savings. You’ll definitely notice those savings as you rack them up with each (discounted) monthly payment. There are even some deals, like the
trade-in offer for the Samsung Galaxy S23
, that still technically come as monthly discounts, but will completely cover the cost of the phone. That means that as long as you stay with Verizon for a few years, the phone will be completely free.

There’s another way to score a free phone, though, and that’s by springing for one of the “buy one, get one” Verizon new customer deals that are almost always available. Like the bill credit rebates, you typically have to sign up for an unlimited plan and pay upfront for both phones — yes, that means you’ll have to pony up the cash for two — before getting the value of the second phone deducted from your monthly bill moving forward. Don’t turn up your nose at these offers; the discount is real, it’s just spread out over the duration of your contract, and these BOGO offers are pretty much the only way you’re going to get something like an iPhone 12 (basically) free.
