How do people constantly upgrade their iPhones?

I'm on Verizon and have been stuck with an iPhone 4 (yes, the original 4) for what feels like the better part of 2 years. My Verizon account says I'm not eligible for an upgrade until December. What are my options to upgrade now without breaking the bank?

Now with iPhone 6 mania about to hit full force it seems like everyone I know (on Facebook, at least) will be upgrading to a 6 the day of. I'd be quite happy to upgrade to the current 5s, but how is it that people seem to continuously upgrade their phones as soon as a new one comes out? Are they actually paying the list price?
Is there some secret upgrade cycle I'm unaware of? Obviously since I have an iPhone 4 I'm not very hip to these things, but any advice to get me current would be helpful. I'm willing to pay a couple hundred extra to upgrade and obviously extend my new contract, but I don't want to pay $600+ or whatever it is just for the privilege of a marginally better phone.
Thanks for any advice.
