New Verizon rebate form reveals policy change, little else

We have to say, Verizon, we’ve seen more impressive rebate sheets from you. What happened to the spark? The flair? The discovery of sexy new handsets your clientele can’t wait to get their hands on? Sorry folks, this time around we bring nothing but bad news. Sure there are a few new discounts available on some nice pieces of Verizon kit in the new February 1 – 14 rebate form, but the star of today’s show is most definitely a downer. It looks like the boys in red finally decided to get wise to the full retail scam as they’ve finally implemented a rebate process that will prevent all you rascals out there from sending in rebates for ineligible handset purchases. If you’re not familiar with Verizon’s rebate setup, only handset purchases tied to one or two-year agreements were eligible to receive a rebate. In the past, less-than-scrupulous customers were able to send in rebates even if they purchased a handset at full retail price and still collect a check. For shame. To remedy the situation, Verizon will now require that all rebate forms be submitted alongside a copy of the relevant customer agreement. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted. Hit the jump to soak in the full rebate form and the sheet detailing the new submission requirements.
