I'm very disappointed by the "offer" - $100 off a Droid Turbo 2 or $500 off a Droid Maxx 2. I am pretty sure that you can get a better deal from Verizon anyway, so it's really an empty gesture, and, quite frankly, I just won't buy a carrier-brand, non-unlocked phone again anyway. It's quite possible that 2 years from now we'll be finding out that one or both of these phones won't be getting a promised upgrade to Android 'N'.

A coupon for a BT headset or a Moto 360? I might be tempted, but not by this.

I got $200 credit on my Verizon account when I traded in a Bionic for a Turbo 2. This is the new no contract program where there is an interest free monthly charge to buy the phone in two years. I can pay off the balance at any time.

Con ... 64GB Turbo 2 not available through Verizon.
Pro ... you don't have to deal with the "interesting" new Mototola.
