I just got an email directly from Samsung about this. Looks like it's for new purchases though.

and I hate how Verizon always keeps their employees in the dark allowing for them to constantly shoot things down as rumors and nonsense.
(i.e. all my calls about the unlimited hotspot offer last year, techs on the phone telling my fiance there was no problem with her phone when it was blatantly obvious to in-store employees, or telling me they didn't think they were getting the G-Nex the day before release, etc...)
just chatted with both verizon and samsung, both say its not real....
Whoever you spoke to is sadly mistaken. I got an email from Samsung 2 days ago with the very same offer. And a quick trip to the Galaxy Nexus page on the Samsung website confirmed it. When you click buy it takes you to this fulfillment page https://samsungdirect.bbymsolutions....wireless-/1124
