Yesterday, Verizon prepaid launched a new $55 unlimited plan through select dealerships. Today, Verizon has a new prepaid offer on its website. Customers who enroll in Verizon's $50 prepaid plan and enable auto pay on their account will get bonus data. The plan normally includes 8GB of LTE data but through this limited time promotion, customers will get 15GB of high-speed data. Enabling auto pay also reduces the price of the plan by $5, lowering it to $45/month.
Plan Details And Offer Fine Print
The 7GB of promotional bonus data offer is scheduled to be available until 4/30/19 (Update 5/12 - this offer has been extended until at least 5/20/19). New customers and existing customers who reactivate or upgrade to the $50 plan are eligible to get the bonus data. The bonus data will renew each month for life as long as the customer remains on the same plan with auto pay enabled.
Besides the 15GB of data, the plan also comes with unlimited talk and text and international texting to over 200 countries. It also includes unlimited talk to Mexico and Canada and mobile hotspot with the first 15GB at LTE data speeds. Taxes and fees are not included in the price and do cost extra. Additional lines can be added to the plan billed at $30/month with auto pay enabled.
Customers interested in this offer would still be better served to find their local VIDAPAY platform enabled dealer. Dealers using that platform are offering double data for life on all plans. The $45 plan with 15GB of data described in this article, is available with 16GB of data for life if purchased through one of those dealers.
Verizon has been making a hard push over the past year to be more competitive in the prepaid marketplace. Double data for life has been offered several times on their prepaid plans. Even without double data, the costs of the plans have come down overall, and include more data. Verizon has even backed the wireless brand Visible, which offers an unlimited everything plan for just $40/month. All of this competition is good news for the consumer. Hopefully it sustains moving forward.
