Verizon discounts for military and veterans

5G Unlimited mobile plans

The amount you save on a Verizon 5G Unlimited mobile plan with a military or veteran discount depends on the number of phones you have:

  • 1 phone: $10/month discount per account
  • 2-3 phones: $25/month discount per account
  • 4+ phones: $20/month discount per account (reflecting the discounts already applied to accounts with four or more Unlimited plans)

But our 5G plans don’t just connect you to the world’s most reliable and responsive mobile network. With 5G Do More, 5G Get More, or 5G Play More, you can also get music, streaming, and gaming subscriptions absolutely free. So as well as saving money, you can provide fun and entertainment for the whole family – perfect for when you’re away from home.

Account-level discounts for standards plans

5G plans offer exceptional connectivity, allowing you to keep in touch with your loved ones from almost anywhere in the world. But if you’d prefer not to upgrade to 5G, your military or veteran discount still earns you 15% off most Verizon standard plans worth $34.99 or more.

Discounts on selected accessories

From phone cases and headphones to gaming and home security, Verizon offers a huge range of accessories to improve your experience. You can also use your military or veteran discount on selected accessories, letting you save:

  • 25% online when you order through your My Verizon Account
  • 10% when bought at a Verizon store

Other services for military and veterans

It’s not just the discounts that make Verizon an excellent choice for military personnel and veterans. When you call Verizon from your personal wireless number as an account holder, our call prioritization service moves you straight to the front of the line. And if you’re deployed, you can suspend your Verizon wireless service until you come home.

How to get your military or veteran discount

This discount is available for both existing Verizon customers and those who are yet to join. All you need to do is:

  • Confirm that you’re eligible for the discount using Verizon’s partner verification tool. (Gold Star Family members who apply for the discount must use the DD Form 214 when checking their eligibility.)
  • Add the discount to your account once you’re sent back to the Verizon website.

Your discount will be applied automatically if you already have a 5G Unlimited mobile plan. If you don’t, just switch to a qualifying account. With $25/month off your bills, a 5G Unlimited plan will almost certainly save money over your current contract, as well as dramatically improve your connectivity.

If you haven’t become a Verizon member yet, simply sign up to access your military or veteran discount.

Your discount won’t be applied to your shopping cart, but you’ll get an email that confirms you’ve qualified. It’ll be applied to your bill within 1-2 billing cycles, and you’ll keep saving money throughout your Verizon contract.
