Verizon has has a discount program in place for current and former military members for a while now. However, there was a minimum plan requirement that prohibited many veterans and soldiers from taking advantage of the discount. Today the nation’s largest wireless carrier announced that they would be extending the terms of the military discount to cover all of their plans. This means that, according to their calculations, over 100,000 eligible accounts will now be extended this benefit.
The military discount includes 15% off monthly Verizon service as well as a 25% discount off select accessories in Verizon’s online and brick-and-mortar stores. All you need to get verified for the benefit is a military issued email or paystub if you’re an active service member or, if you’re a former service member, your DD Form 214 Veteran’s ID Card. Veterans can also use their Military Retiree Account Statement or their VetRewards card from Veterans Advantage to apply.
If you qualify for this discount program, head over to Verizon’s official landing page for military members. There are also options for employment and a handful of other benefits that you may be able to take advantage of. If you know a Verizon subscriber who is former or current military, be sure to share this program with with them!
