Upgrade fee- promo/discount code?

I get that the system will charge an upgrade fee of $20 and taxes need to be paid on the 'purchase' as it is seen.

Can VZW issue a "discount code" to note7 owners to waive the upgrade fee?

As far as taxes, couldn't this be applied to the bill, then immediately credited?

Or is this more of a 'keep the money flowing in-house' tactic?

Jonfive, I apologize for the inconvenience and our goal is for you to have a working device.

This approach is to avoid up-front costs to customers with a defective device.

I'm not asking for a huge credit for the inconvenience of taking a lesser device in 'upgrade' form. I'm just asking that VZ handles the exchange without incurring up-front costs regardless if it will be 'credited later'.

I don't want to pay more for safety or pay more to stress out that my device will catch fire.

This is like saying a Volkswagen dealer wants it's customers to pay for their environmental fix recall first, then they'll pay their customers back later.

VZ doesn't need a 'loan' from me.
