Verizon, as well as some other companies, like to take care of our military. After all they do put their lives on the line to fight for the United States of America. The discount is for active and retired military members as well as their families. Verizon has had a discount program already in place for military and other people, but today they announced some changes to it. One of those changes is that there is no minimum requirement to get the discount which is 15% off of your monthly Verizon bill. On top of that they are also offering discounts on accessories that they sell in store and online. That accessory discount is 25%, definitely making it worth picking up items from Verizon over other places like Amazon. On top of that, they are also offering a 12% discount on HUM, and select calling features like international travel to Mexico and Canada.
The carrier also noted that they are applying this new discount to more than 100,000 customers that are eligible for this military discount. So if you get a nice 15% discount on your next bill, this will be the reason why, and you can also get used to it. Verizon's executive vice president of wireless operations stated that he wanted "to give military service members and veterans one less thing to think about when doing business with us [Verizon]". And that would be the amount they owe Verizon each month for using their service. Verizon does have the best network around right now, leading many service men and women to choosing Verizon over the other wireless carriers around the US.
Verizon has been feeling the heat from competitors in the past year or two. With prices dropping at their competitors - mainly Sprint and T-Mobile - leading Verizon to change up their plans a bit too. Recently the company dropped contracts and went to 5 data plan sizes. Making things a bit easier for those that are confused by the number of plans that are available at other carriers. Verizon also has some great smartphones available including the Droid Turbo 2 which is only available at Verizon with its shatterproof display, as well as it's long lasting battery.
