Military discount can save you up to $40 a month on Verizon unlimited data plans
Back in April, T-Mobile introduced T-Mobile One Military phone plans. These plans offered discounts of 20% to 50% monthly off of the usual T-Mobile One price based on the number of lines activated. Today, Verizon introduced its new military discount that takes the price of Go Unlimited plan to $30 a month per line for four lines. That is a 33% savings on the usual $160 cost. To participate, active-duty military, reservists, Gold Star families and veterans with an ID can select from Verizon's Go Unlimited plan, Beyond Unlimited plan and Above Unlimited plan.

The military discount amounts to $15/month for one line, $35/month for two lines, $40/month off three or more lines. In addition, for a limited time, military families will receive a $200 prepaid Mastercard when activating a new 4G LTE handset on a new line. So a military family of four not only saves up to $40 per month, they could get $800 back. Check the regular everyday pricing of Verizon's unlimited plans by viewing the image at the top of this article. Verizon allows subscribers in the same family to mix and match their plans.

To receive the military discount, you can log-in to your Verizon account and select the unlimited plans you want. There are some requirements. Auto Pay and paperless billing are required. And during times when the network is congested, data speeds can be throttled (after 22GB and 75GB of data is consumed in a month on Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited, respectively).

I don't like this. I mean it's OK for people to get discounts but why military, why not doctors, red cross employees, policemen, even hard working construction people. The dhl person is more useful to the society than a military man; how come he doesn't get a discount? Dumb company!

Because military goes places the others don't. We spend 6 months to a year in places like Afghanistan and Iraq. You can always join and figure out how useful you would be. Let me know when a 6-figure doctor who drives a Mercedes needs a discount. Let me know the next time a teacher has to leave their family for half a year, and only maintain contact through Skype or Facetime. Let me know when a policeman has to worry about bombs or being shot at. Sure, it happens to them from time to time, but it's not expected like being in the desert. Anyway, stop being such a victim.

Unless you have been forced to become a military (I wrote "man", sorry, you might be a woman) person and you are forced to stay in the army, you don't HAVE to leave your family, you CHOOSE to leave it, you CHOOSE to go where there are bombs and you get shot at. Nobody is stopping you from quitting the army and becoming a geologist - they get to worry about zero bombs. What the f are you doing in Afghanistan or Iraq? I don't remember them declaring war on any western country... US had bombed the s**t out of them and some of their people decided to fly some planes into some skyscrapers; it sure was a s**tty move, but hey!, US kind of started all this so what did you expect? Just like a doctor is well payed, the same is true for military people; you earn more than pizza delivery people, taxi drivers, people that clean your s**t when you get injured; why should you get the discounts and not them?

Leo_MC, I agree other groups of people should be eligible however your uneducated attacks on the military are uncalled for. Yes we choose to serve our country because if we didn’t no one else would. Only 2% of Americans serve their country and I can tell from your comments you are part of the 98% that don’t fully understand what that means. The lower enlisted ranks do not make very much money and once you sign a military contract you can’t just quit when you want to. The other professions you mentioned can quit whenever they like. To say a DHL driver does more for the country than a military person shows your ignorance and biases. I’m sorry you have this much hate for a group that defends you and the other 98%.
