Save Up to $80 a Month With Verizon Prepaid's New Family Plans

Verizon Logo
Verizon Prepaid is now offering a multi-line discount. Called the Prepaid Family Account, the discount applies to the second through fifth line on an account. The amount of discount depends on the price of the plan. The second through fifth lines on the $40 plan each get a $10 discount, The discount is $15 per line of the $50 plan and $20 per line on the $60 and $80 plans. Here are the details of each plan:
  • $40/month ($30 for lines 2-5) - unlimited voice, messaging and data with the first 3 GB at high speeds.
  • $50/month ($35 for lines 2-5) - unlimited voice, messaging and data with the first 7 GB at high speeds.
  • $60/month ($40 for lines 2-5) - unlimited voice, messaging and data with the first 10 GB high speeds.
  • $80/month ($60 for lines 2-5) - unlimited voice, messaging and high speed data.
While any savings is always welcome, Verizon's multi-line  discounts are smaller than those currently offered by its primary competitors, especially AT&T's Cricket.  For example: 
  • Cricket's least expensive five line plan costs $100 for 4 GB/line
  • Boost Mobile's least expensive five line plan costs $130 for unlimited data/line
  • MetroPCS' least expensive five line plan costs $150 for 2 GB/line
  • Verizon's least expensive five line plan costs $160 for 3 GB/line
Verizon does have the largest network and for some customers it's the only practical choice. If you're a Verizon customer managing multiple lines, be sure to take advantage of the new Prepaid Family Account discounts. You will probably have to call Verizon to get the discount, I doubt that Verizon will apply the discounts automatically to existing accounts.

  1. Cricket increased the amount of data you get on their $40 tier. You get 4GB now, not 3GB. So you can get 5 lines of 4GB for $100.

  2. Wouldn't it be fair to compare Verizon prepaid to at&t prepaid, T-mobile prepaid instead of their childish Cricket brand?

  3. Looks like VZW needs to find a prepaid brand that it can purchase. T-Mobile and AT&T each have one.

    1. they do not have to do that. practically all tracfone and all total wireless phones are on verizon's towers.
      income without customer costs equals major food brands selling thier items under your local supermarket's labels/brands. profit without some of the costs.

    2. Because obviously Verizon is concerned about poaching post-paid customers. By buying/creating a prepaid arm that doesn't directly market under VZW, the risk of losing post-paid customers lessens.

    3. "Because obviously Verizon is concerned about poaching post-paid customers"

      I'd hope they'd wait until the customers are in-season like AT&T does.

  5. "The second through fourth lines on the $40 plan each get a $10 discount, The discount is $15 per line of the $50 plan and $20 per line on the $80 plan."

    What about the fifth line?

    And there's no mention of the discount on the $60 plan.

  6. I'd rather have free phones and a $10 across the board price cut.

    That'd put them more in line with the competition.

  7. Purchasing a prrpaid brand means that you purchased a brand that is purchasing airtime from yourself.

    They just need to lower the rates.

  8. THe only other Verizon network prepaid with family plans is Total Wireless. At least there now an alternative (yes more $) for those of us who are apprehensive (with good reason)about going with a TF/AM company .

  9. Still pricey. I would like to see tiered volume discount like Cricket Wirless group plan.
