Verizon Wireless on Thursday announced a new limited-time promotion which sees the carrier offering up extra data at no additional cost. Specifically, the deal is catered to family plans looking for four lines of service.
Typically, Verizon’s 8GB (Large) plan runs $70 per month, but for the time being, anyone who signs up on the L, XL, and XXL plans will receive 2GB extra data per line. According to the carrier, each line gets the extra data so long as it remains active on its network.
Starting today, subscribers can get 16GB of data to share across four lines for a total of $150 per month. In essence, the deal is a Large plan ($70 per month) plus the $20 access fee for four lines. The extra 2GB plan is a limited time bonus offering; there is no rolling over (Carryover Data) for the unused data.
As an added bonus, those who activate new lines of service on an account can receive a Samsung Galaxy J3 V handset for free ($168 value). There is a limit of five free J3 phones per account; the deal is actually a $7 bill credit applied over the course of 24 months.
