And speaking of performance, the Pixel 8a utilizes the same processor found in the Google Pixel 8 Pro, which makes the Pixel 8a speedy, secure, and more efficient than many phones at its price point.

Does Verizon offer free phones to new customers?

You bet, but temper your expectations. While Verizon’s new customer deals and sign-up offers are a good way to score a more basic phone for free (like the 2020 iPhone SE or one of the Samsung Galaxy A-series devices, to name just a couple of popular examples), you’ll still have to pay for newer, more expensive phones like the iPhone 15 Pro.

That’s not to say there aren’t cheap Verizon deals on those phones, though. Carrier sign-up discounts like these Verizon new customer deals are arguably the best and most straightforward way to snag one of those new flagships for a low price. These markdowns usually come in the form of bill credits and are only offered with unlimited plans, requiring you to buy the phone first and then get a discount on your bill. That might not sound as enticing as a standalone price cut, but that’s just psychological — you’re still getting the savings. You’ll notice those savings as you rack them up with each (discounted) monthly payment. There are even some deals, like the

trade-in offer for the Samsung Galaxy S23

, that still technically come as monthly discounts, but will completely cover the cost of the phone. That means the phone will be completely free as long as you stay with Verizon for a few years.
