Hey everyone-

I am looking for sign up for verizon fios and verizon wireless? Any tips on discounts or anything else? The quality is great but the fees and taxes add up.

I dont need an unlimited data plan but thats what they always push. I am good with the 6GB prepaid plan but it doesnt come with any discounts. Any ideas?

I currently have sprint and optimum at home and they are both complete trash.

Location: NY
TC or GTFO: 100K

    For wireless service you get significant discounts if you or anyone you know is military, veteran, firefighter, first responder or police. Just have them send you a photo of their work id and ask a rep at the corporate store to set it up. The more lines you have on unlimited the cheaper it is to add one. I don't know if this works for the fios but it's worth it to check.

      I thought I had to be in the military for that to work, are you sure a friends ID would work?

      I know it works at my store. Also the new unlimited plans don't work with employee discounts except those mentioned above.

    I could help you get T-Mobile, they have Unlimited plans and service is so much better than 3-4 years ago. You'll save so much more and no taxes or added fees. 😁

      You can get 1 line cheaper, just have to do it online, taxes and fees are usually included with T-Mobile. If you dont need unlimited then it's around $40 also

      Lol- Stay with Verizon if you’re only paying $40.

    My wife works for a small company and for a while she had a better discount at Verizon wireless than I did since I wasn’t on the wireless side. She found out about it on their intranet site listing all their employee discounts.

      It was 22% but they had to sign up with her valid company email and then verify she was an employee with the company contact. .

    The unlimited is actually not that bad. Is your SO a VZ employee? You may get discounts as well.

    As for FiOS, do you need TV services? If so, the internet combo option may be good, but if not, just take a lower tier internet (dependent on your needs).

      Another tip is, if you want to do the highest unlimited, you can also do hotspot for your internet services! That way you pay 1 bill instead of many.

    Go for verizon, it's worth. Sign up online with 2 year agreement for fios, this will help you save some money... For wireless, the discounts are mostly on device plans...
