Verizon officially kills off New Every Two upgrade discount program
Evidence has shown over the past couple weeks to call this a lock, but let's just go ahead and close the loop on this one: Verizon's official FAQ list has been updated to indicate that its New Every Two upgrade discount program is out. In short, that means that new lines of Verizon service won't be eligible for an equipment discount after your two-year contract is up, and folks that are currently enrolled in an NE2-eligible plan will only be able to redeem the discount one more time before being taken out of it. The move kind of dovetails with Verizon's decision a few months back to bump the smartphone ETF to a introducing $350. However, you will still be eligible for normal subsidized pricing once you pass into the upgrade period on your contract, you just won't get an extra discount on top of that.
One more reason to add to the list of how much I dislike their service.
