Verizon Double Data For Life SIMs Now Available on eBay

Last month, Verizon Prepaid launched a Double Data Promotion. It's a pretty good deal, new customers on Verizon's $30, $40, $50 and $60 get double the normal amount of data for as long as they keep their service active on the same plan. With the double data, the plans are:

  • $30/month - unlimited talk, text and data with the first 1 GB (normally 0.5 GB) at high speeds 
  • $40/month - unlimited talk, text and data with the first 6 GB (normally 3 GB) at high speeds 
  • $50/month - unlimited talk, text and data with the first 14 GB (normally 7 GB) at high speeds 
  • $60/month - unlimited talk, text and data with the first 20 GB (normally 10 GB) at high speeds plus unlimited talk and text to Mexico and Canada 
That's a pretty good offer but until now it's had a fatal flaw. The offer is only available at Verizon Prepaid stores that use the VidaPay point of sale system. These dealers seem to be very few in number and Verizon doesn't offer any way to search for a nearby dealer.

If you can't find a Verizon dealer offering the double data for life deal you can now buy SIMs that are eligible for the deal on eBay. There are a number of eBay sellers offering these SIMs. The sellers come and go, and I haven't had any experience with them, so I'm not going to link to specific ones. You you can click this link verizon prepaid sim card double data - eBay to do any eBay search for Verizon Prepaid SIMs with double data. 

All the SIMs require activation through the seller and include the first month of service at a discount. At the moment I see SIMs for as low as $4 with the $40 plan included or $24.99 with the $50 plan and $29.95 with the $60 plan. These SIMs are  for new activations only, but some sellers allow you to port in from another carrier as long as it's not a Verizon Prepaid number. Be sure to real the item descriptions carefully to make sure you understand the terms of the deal.  Buying SIMs from eBay is pretty safe. If the SIM doesn't arrive or isn't as advertised plan you have 30 days to file a claim under eBay's Money Back Guarantee. To minimize the possibility of having to file a claim I recommend buying from sellers with at least one hundred transactions and a 98% or more positive feedback rating.

  1. Here is a cherry to put on top of it. $40 Verizon Wireless Prepaid Refill Top up PIN Card (Mail Delivery) FOR $35 https://www.amazon.com/Verizon-Wireless-Prepaid-Refill-Delivery/dp/B016P80C9Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1527894700&sr=8-1&keywords=B016P80C9Y

    1. To be clear to other readers, Anon 4:14's link is only for refills, and is not for the initial activation, which offers the $40 plan for dimes on the dollar.

      In addition, Anon 4:14's $5 discount is okay, but not fantastic. You should look for deals on CallingMart, Target, Walmart, etc, especially through SlickDeals and use various ebates, discovery cashback, etc. deals.

    2. Anon 6:31 PM "You should look for deals", it's all about%; 13% discount with the above link is pretty good for Verizon PREPAID. If i were to have to pay local/state/airtime taxes it would be another 8% so saving 21% is damn good savings. A mind that is into ANY form of saving is good. By the way current Personal saving rate way down again to 2.8%. https://www.statista.com/statistics/246234/personal-savings-rate-in-the-united-states/

  2. Verizon is notorious for having a very strict phone policy and you will have a very limited selection of phones to buy that actually work on their Network so id pass on this offer. also you can get unlimited data for 50. or 60. on most other carriers not just 14gb or 20gb

    1. "Notorious"? I think that's over-stating it. Just buy an Android phone that's been previously sold for Verizon, or an iPhone 6, 6S, 7, 8, or X.

      People who want to be on Verizon Prepaid or Verizon MVNO's usually have a good reason for it (and are willing to pay a little extra over T-Mobile's or even AT&T's MVNOs) -- because Verizon has better signal in their suburbs/rural area/hills than all the other carriers.

    2. Verizon is also famous for its stiff unlocking fees, called a "ransom".

    3. I invite you to come to my state and travel around like I do for work on At&t, T-Mobile, or Sprint MVNO's (or even on the native networks) and tell me how great it is saving money but are unable to make phone calls let alone use the internet without wifi. Verizon is the only network that is reliable outside of the cities and interstate. Also, you can use ANY Verizon phone that is paid off, via Swappa, eBay, etc.. There are even some unlocked phones that can be used (though I admit those are few when compared to the GSM unlocked phones).

    4. "also you can get unlimited data for 50. or 60. on most other carriers not just 14gb or 20gb"

      You forget that on T-Mobile, you can only use your data in 2/3 as many places as Verizon. And on Sprint, about a third as many places as Verizon.

      The Verizon data is worth a LOT more and is a LOT more powerful. What good is data if your carrier won't let you use it???

  3. Still too stingy. $60 for unlimited should be the cap.

  4. Seems like most of vendors require new activation and porting over isn't allowed.

  5. In looking at the offers on ebay, you must get a new number. Is there any way to port a number after activation? I want to get this for my elderly father and he will be coming from Verizon postpaid. A choice between a new number and paying $40/month versus staying with postpaid and paying $90/month and he will choose $90/month.

    An option is to port his postpaid number to google voice and then set up call forwarding but texting pictures wouldn't be an option and he does use that.

    What are your thoughts?

    1. Look again. Several of the eBay dealers will do a port-in for activation.

    2. Thanks! Found one who ports.

  6. re: Unknown 6:37: I think it is possible to text pictures via Google Voice now. I sent 3 pictures via text on my GV line yesterday, and received one a few days before that. (Same application you're considering for your dad, with my GV # forwarded to a carrier phone #.)

    1. That's great to hear! I haven't tried with my google voice number but will now. Thanks!

  7. Verizon is no longer activating the older CDMA phones starting July 1 2018. How does this affect Verizon MVNOs? For example will it be possible to activate a Tracfone older CDMA phone that is branded under the Verizon network?

    1. IF Verizon stops activating 3G and non-VoLTE phones on July 1 the ban will likely apply to MVNOs. But the lack of any public announcement by Verizon or any MVNO about the policy change makes me think it has been delayed. For more about this issue see: Rumor: Verizon to End 3G and non-VoLTE Phone Activations July 1 | Prepaid Phone News

  8. Company name was misspelled in the article. It's VidaPay, not Vidpay.
