MD - $79.99 triple play bundle (Prime, 15/5, FiOS Digital Voice), $5/month off, $50 AMEX Reward Card (with code), $300 VISA; other combinations available

For those with existing FIOS Services, you may want to first call Verizon for the best offers available or sign in to MyVerizon and see what's the best bundle they are offering online. If you're out of contract, I suggest signing up as a new customer, perhaps under a family/roomate's name to get the full new offer.


Its $500 via Verizon Visa® Prepaid Card issued by MetaBank™ pursuant to a license from Visa U.S.A. Inc. Use where Visa debit cards are accepted. Must have service for 60 days with no past-due balance. Card mailed within 90 days of install date. Other card terms and conditions apply.

BEST DEAL:
About a week ago I logged onto Verizon and went most of the way through the 5-step package selection process, but I canceled out at the end and didn't actually purchase it. Today I got an email from them with a promotional code saying: "Thanks for contacting us. Here's a discount coupon for you. Take $5 off your bundle for 24 months."
So I went ahead and signed up today (install date 12/7 – I can’t wait!) and used the Promo Code from the email and it knocked the price down to $74.99/month, thus saving me $120 over the 2 year contract. Plus I have another code that will also get you an additional $50 Amex gift card.

My bottom line:
$74.99/month for 2 years
+ $300 Visa Gift Card
+ $50 Amex Gift Card
--------------------------------------
$60.40/month (after GC)


I finally got my $300 card from Verizon. Please note there is a $3.00 maintenance fee starting the 13th month so use the card before 1 year is up. Also, there is a $6.95 fee to replace the card so don't lose it and there is a 1% foreign transaction fee if the transaction is made outside the US. I recommend just applying your card to your Verizon account and have it give you a $300 credit. It will be used up in about 3-4 months that way depending on your monthly bill. This way you don't have to worry about it.

As for the person who received a card for more than $300, the paperwork says:


Please note that the total card value may be higher than your Verizon Visa Prepaid Card offer to off-set taxes and fees included with your original order.

Tried to sign up with a different name for same address. Verizon wants a $250 refundable deposit via credit card --- doesn't mention when this will be refunded. Also the internet sign up page states I will not be able to transfer my existing Verizon telephone number.
Has anyone paid the $250 before and actually got it back? Should I take the risk of signing up for new service with new telephone number and hope I will be able to transfer old number once old service is canceled. Plan is to order new service under different name - once that is activated immediately cancel existing current service and transfer current telephone number to new service order.
I've never heard this before. Maybe they are starting to crack down on people who start service in a different name at the same address... but I would find it hard to believe that they won't port a verizon number... that's probably against the law. You could fill out a complaint with the fcc at this page [fcc.gov], (click wired phone), but that would likely be too late.

But I doubt they are trying to catch people doing this... their own customer service reps have recommended the process as the only way to get the cheaper pricing.

I'm in Virginia. Out of contract and can't get a good deal. Considering going back to Comcast but really happy with the FIOS package. Just hate the new price.

Anybody have any ammo for me to use when I call?
Since you are out of contract, you could ask them if you can get the contract pricing if you commit to a 2 year deal.. that might be enough. Otherwise... see above.

Do you happen to have bad credit or did you refuse a credit check? I think I remember hearing something about this a few years ago that they ask for deposits in certain situations where they feel someone will flake out and steal the equipment. However, some people with perfect credit get hit with it and can't figure out why. There are also many horror stories about trying to get the deposit back. Honestly, the service is so good that I wouldn't even worry about the deposit (unless you are really hard pressed for cash). I couldn't imagine going back to Cablevision.

Any relatively new subscribers have luck sweet talking the sales, billing or retention department to send a $300 prepaid Visa card their way?

They only require a deposit if there is an outstanding unpaid bill, or credit is really poor.

If you have a bill that has not been paid, pay it off, if your have no reasons to believe that your credit is questionable, run a credit report, you could have been "cloned"

Not true.... do a web search on Fios deposit. There are people who have never had a missed payment in their life being required to pay deposits however I do agree with you that he should absolutely check his credit report.

I currently have a residential service under my wife's name for 12 months now (no agreement), can I use the verizon online system to order a new service (exact services with special offer) under my name?

I wonder what happens to the existing service, does my wife need to call and cancel after I place the order. Will there be any interruptions in the service?

Any help? I am just trying to ensure the correct order and timing for this process.TIA.

You can place the order first to get your service available date. Then, ask your wife to call in to cancel the service for the same date.

Well, if you are porting your existing number, I wouldn't cancel the same day you start service. I think the most prudent thing is to start up service in your name, then on the install day, call in to have them port your old number over. The porting process will begin your cancellation of your phone service under your wife's name. Then after the number is successfully ported (up to 48 hours), THEN call and cancel the remaining services.

It's a bit of a hassle, because they won't let you keep your old equipment. You will have to get new stuff from the installer, then mail back the current equipment after you cancel. I believe they will send you a cardboard box and give you a prepaid mailer.

But as you might have read from a few posts above yours, there might be some new hiccups to doing this.

You might also want to look into committing to a 2 year deal. They will often give you the new pricing promo, as well as the Gift Card if you agree to commit to a 2 year deal. That way, you will only have to switch to your name two years from now...

Good luck

Not necessarily. When I did this, the installer simply had me use my existing DVR and Set-top boxes (i.e. easier for him than installing new ones). I assume he just had to link the box serial #s to my account, which removed them from the previous account.

If I didn't already have the latest boxes, I would've requested that the installer swap them out though. Part of the reason I did this (besides the price promo) was to get the latest FiOS router which is significantly better than the one I had before. I could not find a way to get it for free otherwise (requesting an exchange always resulted in an old/used replacement router).

I refused the credit check but agreed to give my SSN - I have really good credit, though. Main concern is getting the deposit back years down the line when I have to cancel service, relocate, etc. - I don't trust that they will have accurate records and timely refunds. Oh well... $250 is $$$$. thanks very much for response

$250 is cheap. I have seen people have to give down like $1500 before.

What's the point of having good credit if you are not going to use it. It is your choice, use the good credit you have, or put money down.


Quote from msweezer View Post :

On the grand scheme of things, $100/month ($80/month base, + 1 or 2 DVR/Cable Boxes+ taxes) x 24 months = $2400, so them asking for a 10% deposit for someone who has no/bad credit (someone who refused a credit check is no different from someone who has bad credit) is not unreasonable.

Keep records of everything you sign, and you should be fine. If they don't give it back, take them to small claims and you will get $250 + interest, or stay with Cable.

Edit: How much of a hit does the credit score take from Verizon Inquiry, if it is indeed a hard pull. Let's say it is a 20-50 point hit, which is temporary. For someone who has good credit, as stated earlier, a 50 point drop should make no difference. However, 50 point drop will make a substantial difference in a marginal credit score.

So, if you do indeed have good credit score, (760 and up) go ahead, and use it. It will come back up in 2-4 months. Otherwise, it is just sitting there, as a conversation piece and does you no good. Even if you were planning to buy a car or a house in the next 6 months, the drop from the Verizon pull won't make a difference. You will still have good credit to qualify for the best rates.

Just my $0.02, it is your credit, and you are free to do whatever you wish with it.
