If you’re in the market for a Verizon handset, you might want to look at making your purchase on Amazon. The retailer is offering a free $50 gift card for any Verizon handset purchase made on the site between September 16 and September 26, 2011.

The only qualifier for getting in on the bargain is to purchase a new line of service with your phone. Some phones are already a bargain on Amazon. The HTC Thunderbolt, for instance is going for just $.01, a sizable discount off its retail price at Verizon.

Are any of you thinking about taking advantage of the Amazon deal? What phone are you going to buy?
