Verizon Prepaid Introducing $5 Auto Pay Discount

Last week Verizon Wireless announced that it was increasing the amount of data included with its monthly prepaid smartphone plans. Effective immediately for current customers, and starting June 6 for new customers, $60 plan users will get 2GB of data per month instead of 500MB. $70 plan users will get 4GB rather than 2GB.

It looks like Verizon has another little goodie in store for monthly smartphone plan users. According to a point of sale display that a reader spotted at Walmart, Big Red is will be offering a $5/month discount to customers who sign up for auto pay using a credit or debit card.

Auto pay is convenient and the $5 discount is a good thing, but it may not be the least expensive way to pay for service. Online airtime PIN sellers like CallingMart routinely offer discounts of up to 7% on Verizon airtime and, at least until Congress changes it, there's no tax when buying PINs online. Verizon is required to collect sales and e911 taxes in all states where it has a physical presence, which is just about everywhere.

    1. 4g lte is overrated, 3g on Vzw ids fast enough to do what you need, negatives of lte is battery resource hog and uses up data at a faster pace.

  2. That's very interesting! I'm waiting to see what happens with AIO Wireless. They have a rather ground-breaking game. Dennis, have you heard anything further about AIO expansion nationwide? Their 70.00 plan for 7GB of high speed data and unlimited throttled data thereafter looks really hard to beat. I could see this forcing Verizon to come up with more compelling offerings.

    1. Can't you reduce your auto pay amount so that the balance covers part of your next month of service?
