As most of you already know, Verizon is running a BOGO (Buy One, Get One FREE) offer on the new HTC One M8 – quite a deal for a new flagship device. Two HTC One M8s will cost you $199.99 as long as you sign a two-year contract, as well as a $100 Bill Credit through 3/31 if you activate a new line of service as well.
Our friends over at Droid-Life have also discovered something very interest that could save you a bunch more money – the longstanding ‘VERIZON30’ coupon will also work with the BOGO deal. This will bring the purchase of TWO new HTC One M8s down to a paltry $139.99! Take a look at the screenshot below and you can see how it worked on their run through the online checkout ‘Cart Summary.’
That is really quite a bargain on this beautiful new device and especially if you have more than one user in the family…and who doesn’t anymore. If for some reason that code will not work, you can always try ‘VZWDEAL’ which should at least drop the price to $149.99. All codes are applied during checkout. For good reasons Verizon does not advertise these discount codes, but generally they will work, so give them a try and please let us know on our Google+ Page if you were able to save some money on your new HTC One M8 purchase and if you are going for the BOGO offer.
It is very interesting as to why Verizon took this route – was it in the agreement so Verizon could have the device in-store first or something the HTC pushed to try to get more people to purchase their new HTC One M8. It is no secret that HTC has been struggling the past two years, trying to gain ground on both Samsung and LG in the smartphone market. The HTC One M7, put out last year was a highly regarded device cloaked in 70-percent aluminum, with dual stereo front-facing speakers, and high-end specifications, yet it never sold near the number of devices that HTC was looking to sell. The new HTC One M8 is now clad in 90-percent aluminum, with improved everything. Normally you would not see this type of deal on Verizon (or any carrier) with a new flagship device so it will be interesting to see how many they sell.
