Confessions Of A Verizon Sales Rep


A former sales rep for phone compaby, Verizon, got in touch with The Consumerist to help deal shoppers get the edge whilst in the store.

It’s a handy 8 stepper just to make sure you’re on the same playing field as the reps.

  • Never get a 2-year contract.
  • Verizon reps get tons of money from new lines and certain accessories and text packages, take advantage of this.
  • Mention the lost or stolen program to get 25% off a new phone, even if you’re under contract.
  • If you’re on a rate plan of $59.99 or higher, you can get “a new phone (and new contract) for the discounted price after 12 months.”
  • Insurance is a rip-off.
  • Tell them you’ll sign up for the Unlimited Data Plan with your Treo.
  • Reps don’t get as much money if you’re still in a contract.
  • Ask for a loyalty credit on the phone before going to the store.
