Verizon's offer is to waive the $30 activation and give three months free, so a total of $60.

Nike is offering 14% cash back through coupon cabin, so also about $60 back.

Any other deals out there that I should look at?

AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint also offer a similar deal that Verizon is offering. AT&T and Sprint are offering credits like Verizon for activation and 3 months of service. T-Mobile's offer is just free activation and 3 months of free servcie.

Coupon cabin? Wish I’d known.

I did get 10% via topcashback purchasing mine from Nike online.

T-mobile did not charge an activation fee, and my plan says 90 days free.

So at least with T-Mobile, the plan pricing is not contingent on buying from them. I suspect the same is true with AT&T and Verizon.

I haven't seen any deals with Apple Watch series 3. But you can get some discounts through credit card. For example, if you have a Chase credit card and use chase pay, you can get 10% off at Walmart and Bestbuy. Depending on your local sales tax, it might save you a little bit.
