(Update 2/27 6:36pm): Our apologies, this promo is only for new activations, not upgrades. The original draft of this post was incorrect.

Best Buy will give you a free $150 or $200 gift card when you activate a line with any new smartphone on Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint. You’ll need to do so using carrier installment plans: Verizon Edge, AT&T Next, or Sprint Easy Pay/Leasing — upgrades of any kind and of course, full-priced no-commitment smartphone purchases are not eligible for the gift card bonus.

AT&T and Verizon new line activations will yield a free $150 gift card, while Sprint will get you $200 (in-store only).

The promo covers a range of smartphones including iPhone 6/Plus (in-store pickup only), iPhone 5s/c, LG G2, HTC One M8, Nokia Lumia 1520, and several others. best-buy-smartphone-gift-card-promo
