Amazon waiving Verizon activation fee (until May 5)

Amazon has yet another deal for Verizon customers: the giant retailer is offering an activation-fee credit for up to $35 to anyone who buys a Verizon device and activates a line of service on a new 2-yr individual or family plan.

The activation-fee credit isn’t offered instantly. Instead, it “will appear on your bill and may take up to several billing cycles” until it happens.

The offer is valid until 11:59 p.m. PDT, May 5, 2011, and seems to include both phones and tablets. You can take advantage of it by visiting Amazon Wireless.

As a reminder, you can get quite a few nice Verizon smartphones from Amazon for discounted prices, including the new HTC Thunderbolt ($179 on contract), and the Motorola Droid X ($0.01 on contract).
