They were giving it for free when it launched. $199 buy one get one free and $100 per line bill credit equals free for 2 new lines.
Add in the ISIS activation credit and they were actually paying you to take 2 new HTC One M8 phones out the door at Verizon. I took them up on it and promptly sold one of the new phones for $700 to cover my ETFs.
