    Default Comcast is offering a $200 Visa Prepaid card when buying a Verizon phone or tablet

    Saw this on SD, and called in to order another Note 3 for $200. The csr confirmed that you do not have to be a Comcast subscriber to qualify. The $200 Visa prepaid card will be sent within 4-6 weeks. It is applicable for any phone or tablet You can either call 888-972-6131 or buy online. Note if you buy online, by default, it shows "Showcase devices" make sure to select "All Devices" in the upper left if you are ordering non-Showcase devices like the Note 3, S4, etc. Deal is good until Dec 6.


    Verizon Wireless with XFINITY® Triple Play from Comcast


    From SD:

    What about the secondary EFT at Comcast?

    It is processed and fulfilled by Verizon. No secondary etf. I confirmed this with the csr. My receipt came directly from Verizon

    You would have to order through either the link or phone number in the op to get the $200 visa prepaid card.

    PLEASE NOTE: A very sweet Comcast lady cautioned that in order to receive a $200 VISA card, the upgrade has to be processed with them by phone and NOT online through the Verizon website.

    The Comcast link forwards to the Verizon website for processing, and I went through about 3/4 of the process. Before I finished, the Comcast csr came on the phone line and told me not to complete the order through VZW. She did confirm twice that there's no secondary ETF.

    Certain third party retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Newegg, dell, Staples, Sam's Club, Radio Shack, etc charge an $400 fee in addition to the Verizon $350 etf if you cancel or make certain changes to your account within 181 days

    Correct. AFAIK, best buy and Costco are the only two third party retailers who do not have the secondary etf.

    I couldn't find a way to do so online through Comcast. I didn't ask when I called in, doesn't hurt to ask but most likely they won't do it.

    Will do. Did you upgrade using a tiered data line's upgrade?

    And is the price $199 for the GNote 3 as it is on Verizon's site right now?

    online it let me do the upgrade transfer. The site I logged into is verizon, but it looks very different from my usual verizon site. And I could tell from the URL that it was logged as me having clicked thru from comcast.

    Called Comcast, phone rep (Erica) was insistent that you cannot get the $200 prepaid gc without ordering thru the phone. She refused to transfer the upgrade from my unlimited line even though she could do it. She tried to talk me out of unlimited. I explained to her why I wasn't going to do that.

    Anyhow, I think she is bluffing about the $200 gc not being available unless you order by phone since the website clearly says order by phone or online. I read the SD thread, you get a confirmation of a $200 gc after you order online. They would open themselves to lawsuits if they don't honor that.

    The link in the first post was clearly from Comcast, and said that you can order online or over the phone. I would think that they would have to honor online orders so long as you used the Comcast link.

    I used my $20 data plan line to upgrade. Best Buy didn't let me keep the plan when I upgraded last time, so glad that I could use the upgrade here

    I just pulled the trigger and documented each step with a print screen. I transferred my upgrade from my unlimited line to my dummy line and each step of the way it showed me that it was my dummy line being upgraded.

    After I hit submit order, I was presented with a Verizon screen with my order number and a finish button on it. When I hit the finish button, a comcast screen popped up thanking me for my purchase and letting me know that I should receive my $200 VISA prepaid card within 30 days.

    Yipee!!!!

    BTW, what is this $20 data plan? That's what I thought, too, but today I double-checked my bill, and it said $29.99 for "Email and Web unlimited." And when I upgraded my dumb line later today, it said $29.99 for 2GB.

    It was the legacy $20/300mb plan, which was offered for a short time. You can't get it now if you don't already have it.

    Glad it worked for you. I didn't see the button to transfer but honestly I wasn't really looking as my unlimited line is still on contract
