Verizon Lowers Prepaid Rates, Adds Loyalty Discounts
Verizon has improved the value of its prepaid plans across the board, and added additional discounts the longer you keep your account. Customers will now receive a $5/month discount after three months, and an additional $5/month discount after nine months. As before, a further $5/month discount is available when using Auto Pay. The Unlimited prepaid plan is now $65/month instead of $70. That's before any discounts, so after nine months and with Auto Pay, that brings the Unlimited plan to $50/month. The $50/month (before discounts) plan now includes 15 GB of data instead of 8 GB, and the $40/month plan now includes 5 GB instead of 3 GB. With the new discounts, that makes the cheapest plan as low as $25/month. All plans include unlimited talk and text, including texting to/from Canada and Mexico. The 15 GB and Unlimited plans also include unlimited calling to/from Canada and Mexico. Mobile Hotspot is included with the 5 GB and 15 GB plans, and can be added to the Unlimited plan for $5/month.
