If you’re a military veteran or a current member of the armed forces, listen up! Verizon is instituting a new military discount program that will put some money back in your pocket. Starting today, you can get a discount through Verizon, good for [textmarker color=”FF0831″]up to 15% off of your monthly bill and up to 25% off select accessories[/textmarker].
Joining is quick and simple: active duty military members submit military issue email address or paystub. If you’re retired you’ll need DD form 214, Veteran’s ID card, Military Retiree Account Statement, or VetRewards card.
You may want to check your statement before you go through the application process because Big Red says they plan to automatically apply this discount to about 100,000 people they already feel meet the qualifications.
Easier to qualify
This program has existed for a while, but you had to meet certain minimum plan requirements and those restrictions are no longer in place. Verizon says that this plan will now be expanded to more current military members and retired vets; it applies to post-paid accounts with no minimums.
In Verizon’s FAQ for this program they do point out that you cannot receive this discount on data-only lines, so if you have a line with a tablet or MiFi, those will probably still be full price.
You can head over to Verizon’s military discount page to submit your proof, and start saving today.
