    Yup, our expensive phone just got downright cheap.

    EDIT/UPDATE!!!!!: Just got off phone w/Customer service...

    I'm getting the 20% discount!!!! I'm returning the phone, paying the re-stock fee, and "buying a Pixel" after the return.

    Seeing as we're within the 14 day exchange period since release every one of us is eligible. The confounding factor is whether you can find the phone you want (color and storage) in stock or have a back-phone to use until they can fill what you want via backorder.

    Also, the trade value is $200 for current customers. $300 for new customers.

    So an XL 32 (mine) costs $770 - $200 - $150 = $420.

    FYI for those of you on the fence

    I don't see this on the Verizon's website. Do you have a link to the deal you could post. I'm interested in getting the S7e. If trade in has been set at a price instead of value, then I'm in.

    This is a bill credit spread out over 24 months.

    Hmmm. I have a Droid MAXX I have kept as a backup phone... I'm not worried about the locked bootloader, only if Verizon starts getting in the way of updates. Hmmm....

    Word is that they are going to release updates at the same time that Google releases them. Provided you trust them.........
    Update: Verizon says its Pixels will get updates at the same time as Google’s | Ars Technica

    I was able to get customer service to find the code and apply it to my account. So I got $150 credit for the Pixel 128gb.

    The exact wording of the promo is "INTERNET BARCODE OFFER 20 PERCENT OFF ANY 4G SMARTPHONE ON DPP BIC YES"

    If you run through as a new customer it will work. You have to use the device payment plan. Also some people have not been able to get Verizon to honor it because they have a corporate discount. I have a corporate discount, unlimited data and also a $20 discount on both my unlimited data lines and they still honored the code.

    This just made this phone totally worth it.

    Man I really wish there was a way that I could take advantage of this deal, but I still owe just under 400 on my phone for another year.

    Sounds like they're matching the T-Mobile deal.

    Yeah, I don't see it anywhere either, but if I can get another $150 off I'll return it and rebuy.

    You need to enter the "SAVE20" code at online checkout. Or call to place the order.

    Here's the report on the promo. I didn't get an email like I typically do when these are offered:

    [Deal] Get 20% off a Pixel or Pixel XL from Verizon with a promo code

    In practical terms it's complicated if you have the phone and want to do this. I'm not sure if the promo is only on-line. If you bought on line they can hopefully set it up for you and the return box will arrive after the new one gets to you.

    If you bought in-store, it has to be returned there. Unless they can extend the discount (ie available BOTH in store and online), you better order today so that you can get your phone returned within the exchange period and have the new one in-hand--2 day shipping. The exchange period ends Thursday for those of us that bought on launch day.......

    I bought in store, but customer service put notes in my account to approve the discount on the new one when I return it in-store.

    Sorry about that. The $300 is for specific phones. Recent 1Phones, Galaxy etc.
    $200 on ANY phone. I couldn't edit my title but updated the OP.

    New customers get the extra $100 w/ a trade ie $400/$300 depending on the phone you're giving up.

    Well, I have the Note 7. I went online to Verizon and the coupon code works for me. I get $174.00 off a Google Pixel XL. Now what do I do? It is back ordered until Dec. 9. I just hope I don't order and regret it. Why would I regret it? Because it is not a Note 7.

    The question is can that be applied to those of us who have pre-orders and haven't been shipped yet and not screw up the free daydream
    And not screwing up our ship dates

    Call customer service. You probably would lose the Daydream because you'd be starting a new order. I can tell you that my blue XL/32 was slated for shipping 12/2, but it's getting here tomorrow. Backorder dates might be generally pessimistic.

    well just called they didnt give me the discount told me i would have to cancel my preorder and start all over. he did give me a $20.00 account credit a small consolation prize but not what i was looking for. I guess verizon rewards loyalty with jack squat.....

    k heard it doesnt work if you have employer discounts is that true
    Correct... if you already have an employer discount on your account the promo won't work and does not apply.

    However, I called to nicely complain about the delayed shipping with Verizon and convinced them to give me the $100 off deal they currently have running. It wouldn't normally apply to the pixel phone (just some of the older phones), but with all the trouble with the N7 recalls and pixel delays they gave it to me anyway.

    Verizon customer service has really bent over backwards for customer satisfaction...I can't say the same for the corporate stores, they have been horrible to deal with! It's always worth a call to see if they would give you a credit too.

    Well looks like the promo code might be over already. Just tried to enter it in online and it said "invalid promo code". Might call CS just in case
