GalaxyS5-Thumb

Verizon's Galaxy S5 pre-order is now available, and the Big Red really wants you to buy one. It's willing to sell you Samsung's latest flagship for $249.99 with a two-year activation and throw in a $50 mail-in rebate debit card. What makes this offer worthwhile is a complementary buy-one-get-one free deal that will not only include a free Galaxy S5 on the house, but an HTC One M8, HTC One M7, or Galaxy S4 instead if you would rather mix and match (or a Samsung ATIV SE if, for whatever reason, you'd rather walk out with a free Windows phone instead).

BOGO

If you want a second Galaxy S5, it isn't actually free. The carrier will still charge you $50, then send out the mail-in rebate debit card as compensation.

Checkout

As a consolation, though, it looks like the VERIZON30 promo code that applied for the HTC One M8 will still apply here, saving you an additional 30% on top of the free phone.

Update: Despite showing me the "valid promotional code" message, it appears the 30% savings isn't actually going through.

The two two-year contracts will still cost quite a bit of money, but this is nevertheless a good deal for people who plan on sticking with Verizon regardless.

    Does the VERIZON30 code work for anyone? I tried and nothing it doesn't work.

    • fillyo75

      Didn't work for me, but I ordered anyways, not waiting.

  • dsignori

    I want the 32GB version. Any word on if/when VZ will get it?

    • ThomasMoneyhon

      likely $350 at this rate with a 2yr.

  • Arthur Dent

    $249 for a 16GB device (with about 8GB usable) on a freaking 2-year contract. I LOL'd.

    • PoisonApple31

      10.7GB usable.

      • Arthur Dent

        Ok, 10.7GB. I still LOL.

        • PoisonApple31

          Me 2!

    • Casin

      Verizon does this with a lot of devices. $250 with a $50 rebate, cause they know a lot of people won't use the whole rebate card so they essentially got away with charging more. It's really a dirty business practice.

      • Arthur Dent

        That's why Verizon blows goats.

        • ThomasMoneyhon

          Yep. You pay more for less, get screwed with CDMA, locked bootloaders, and just wait for that migration to VoLTE that you will be forced over to, your batter life will be 3-5 hrs when you have a couple of conversations during the day.

            If by less you me coverage that doesn't completely suck; then yes, less.

    Just ordered my two S5's today. Had one upgrade and Verizon let me early upgrade on other line 5 months early to take advantage on BOGO deal. Say what you want but I love VERIZON. Best coverage hands down and customer service has always taken care of me.
