Right now at Verizon you can get a $200 prepaid MasterCard when you buy a new smartphone and add it to a new Unlimited plan. Once you've checked out with your new phone, go to Verizon's Promotion Center website and enter the code APRILSWITCH. You'll have some other info you need to fill out, but in about eight weeks you'll get your MasterCard.

You can also get the $200 MasterCard if you switch to Verizon with the iPhone 7, 8, or 8 Plus. This deal requires a device payment purchase up to $1,599.99 and a port in of an existing phone number. The line also has to remain active for 45 days and will get a $200 charge back if it's cancelled within six months.
You can also apply this deal to the iPhone X lineup. Similar to the other deal, this one requires a device payment purchase up to $1,599.99 with a phone number port-in. Keep the line active for 45 days.
Check out our review of the iPhone XR where we gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and said "It has almost everything you'd want in a flagship phone for 2018, minus the price tag that's typically coming with them these days." Our reviewer even used the phone for a month and wrote a followup afterward where he said "iPhone XR is legit a great product and it's going to be a great phone choice for a lot of people."
We also took a look at the iPhone XS seven months after its release. Renee Ritchie said "...if you need it or would benefit from getting it now, absolutely get an iPhone XS — or XR if you don't care about the OLED display or dual camera system and want to save some cash — now and have zero regrets." The review adds the "iPhone X was all new. iPhone XS is just all better. Better camera, better battery, better Face ID, better performance, and a new gold option. More than just being a great user experience, 7-months later something else is clear as well: It's a phone you can rely on."
