    I'm not seeing the $100 trade in credit on the Verizon website anymore. This is not to say it's still available, it's just not front and center like it used to be.
    Is there some place where you have to go to find the form? As I posted there was nothing on the order conformation form or subsequent email.

    I just got my Droid Turbo 64 on 12/03. When I was having issues with my Rarz HD, I was allowed to upgrade 5 weeks early. Nothing was said about trading it in for $100. This morning I get an email with that offer. The value came up as $30 but they would give some promotional value of $70 to add up to $100. My old phone still turns on and off, looks like new, etc. Just had trouble with some programs running the battery down. SO, I might go for it! (CS didn't want to hassle with a factory reset to see if that would be a fix, so they sold me a new phone)

    There should be an ad banner for the trade in above the list of phones click on it and you'll get the full details

    Edit, my bad the reply was meant for the poster who said he could not find the ad.
    As for form, no they do not give you a form, sometime after making the purchase(could be days could be a month) they will email you a special code with a link to their trade in page. If you do not want to wait, you can bring your phone into the corporate store and tell them you bought a Turbo and is there to do the trade in for $100.

    I got my turbo about two weeks ago and figured I wasn't eligible for the trade in because I paid full retail price to keep my unlimited data. But today I got an email with a code and instructions on how to trade in an old smart phone. so I'll be sending back an old Casio Commando for 100 bucks!

    My renewal is December 17th and I have my wife's old as Incredible to trade in. I'm hoping they will take the $100 right off the cost of the phone in store too.

    Probably not. When I was looking at phones, I went to the store, decided on the Turbo, and asked for the trade-in, but they wouldn't give it to me in the store. The store said that it was an online-only deal. So I went online, and it would not let me pick up the phone in a store; they would only mail it to me. Kind of a bummer.

    I filled out the form on the VZW site and am still waiting for the mailed packet to return the phone, a week later. I hope they're actually sending it.

    This is confusing. I got a text this morning saying "Thank you for your recent Motorola purchase. Now you can trade in your old smartphone in good, working condition and receive a minimum $100 Verizon Wireless Gift Card. Limited time offer. Visit www.trade-in.vzw.com and enter the promo code ... REPLY X TO OPT OUT."

    When I go to the site enter the phone and promo code it gives me $10 for the phone and $13 for the promo. I tried several phones and the most it gave me was $20 for the phone and $15 for the promo. Is this what others are seeing?

    ==================================

    Update. I tried one more time and it gave me a larger promo amount that brought the total to $100. Now I am waiting for the shipping envelop to arrive. So it looks like the program is still alive and works!

    I just got my Turbo at the store on Wednesday night. They will give you the credit in the store, no codes or anything. They will try to talk you into "spending" it on accessories. I opted not to get any accessories and told them to apply the credit on my bill. I got a receipt showing my trade-in value of $100. I should see the $100 credit on my next bill.

    Edited to add: Must be a corporate store, not an "authorized affiliate".

    In typical Verizon fashion, they might tell you differently. Frustrating because people hear different stories from different Verizon reps. Stick to your guns. You want the credit given to you in-store. They can do it. Don't let them tell you to wait for a code in an email.

    It's really amazing how mis-informed Verizon store employees are. You would think that they have a web portal where they list out the promo that's running, at minimum list the promotions that are nationwide. Instead of putting the onus on the customer to provide proof to their employees of such promotion.

    They are probably on commission and wanted to close the potential buyer. Just like buying a used car.

    Ordered the Turbo Saturday night, got the text with trade in code yesterday (Thursday) morning, about an hour before the phone was delivered. Went to the Verizon store today and traded in my G'Nex, no questions, no hassle. Didn't even ask for the code, I'm assuming it was listed in account notes somewhere.

    This was the same store, but different rep, that told me Saturday it had to be the phone that was active on the line when I ordered the Turbo. I told him I'm not edging up, and he tried claiming it didn't matter.

    went yesterday to a corporate store, picked up the phone, traded in an old htc incredible, got 100$ off the phone right there, waved the $30 activation fee, no hassle, no questions asked, everything went as smooth as can be, altho in my area, the first store i went to had none in stock, told me the only store that did was quite a while away, after calling around, one store told me they had alot, but i happen to get the last one when i was there

    Just posted on another thread that we did this... Then saw this thread. Yes, this promo is still alive and well. My husband and I just got Turbos this week and we're getting the $100 for our old phones. Since we billed the 2 Turbos to the account (they were $99 ea. Employee editions) this will pay for our new phones. I know Verizon is really pushing the Turbo... It's a big 'ole phone, but a spec beast. Think we'll enjoy them.

    Not to derail this thread but have you noticed that big red is doing this same deal for the S5 & Note 4 now??

    How to Claim Your $100 Verizon Gift Card
    1. Buy a new Samsung Galaxy S® 5 or Samsung Galaxy Note® 4 with a
    2 year activation or Verizon Edge agreement.
    2. Activate your new Samsung smartphone. Within 5 days, you’ll receive a promotion code with trade-in redemption details via email or text message.
    3. Click on the link in your message and follow the on-screen steps. Enter your promotion code to claim your extra trade-in value. Once Verizon receives your old smartphone (must be in good, working condition), you will receive a Verizon gift card by email.

    When did this start? I went to the company store last Saturday for the note 4 and that said it was only on the Turbo and they had to check with the manager to get those details, I ended up getting now $100 code only the note 4

    Has anybody picked up a new DT with this deal in the last couple of days? I will be eligible on Wednesday the 17th. I know the deal is through the end of the year but I also know how clueless some CSR's can be. I plan on going to my local corporate store. Hopefully I won't have to hold their hand through the entire process, but I'm prepared for that! lol

    You're good, it's writ in stone on their website. Having said that, yes you may have to walk a rep through it, but they should know. Have the website pulled up, or a print out, just in case.

    Is that available only to those who pay the full price for the phone? I was eligible to upgrade a week before my contract end date, so I purchased the phone on the 9th. However, I went with the Edge Plan.
