Step-by-step directions for taking off $25 from your current bill. So if you are paying $39.99 for 50Mbps (more than sufficient to stream Netflix, Kodi and HULU Live TV simultaneously) your bill will be 14.99 for the next 12 months.

1: Call Verizon at 1-877-295-2592. Tell the rep that you are moving out and would like to cancel the service after 5 days. Give a random date. This way you are making sure they won't disconnect your service immediately and leave you without internet.

2: Wait for an hour or so. You will get an email from Verizon Advertising Branch offering you a $25 off to stay with Verizon. Do not click on the link that they provide in the email. I did that the last time and submitted my order but what it did was took away my existing discounts and added a $25 credit which in turn raised my bill by $10.

3: Instead call 1.866.614.8680 and mention it to the CSR that you cancelled the service because Spectrum or Optimum was offering you a better price but then you got this email from Verizon offering you a $25 credit. Note that the email comes from an Advertising branch of Verizon so the rep would have no way to verify if you really got an email.

4: Now the rep will ask for your account info and apply the $25 credit to your current plan. This creates a new order. You will get an email from Verizon about this new order which will ask you to "Review Order". As soon as you click on "Review Order" your screen is shared with the Verizon Rep.

5: Make sure you got the credit. Most importantly take screenshots of this order coz even if they say that you will get an email about the breakup, you never get it. Also if possible record the call using a call recorder app. I never trust these corporate mafias.

6: See if you are eligible for additional discount through your employer by visiting Verizon Connections page. For 50-50 Speed you will get a $5 discount bring your monthly bill to $9.99

7: Enjoy your cheap internet!!!!

So, why did you post your scam in Hot Deals? If I did this, I would not even want anyone else to know. I would be too ashamed. Plus, I am still trying to figure out your title.

Sorry, first time posting a deal. If you think it is in the wrong section, feel free to move it or delete it. And I am not at all ashamed in saving money. If you feel so bad for Verizon, you can keep paying them hundreds of dollars a month. Good luck.

I agree but then my post was all the way in the back. A lot of folks don't read every thread. Even I jumped on this original deal and cancelled my wife's account and signed up for a new account in my name. They did do a hard credit check. Rather I was happy with my 50mbps connection. But I would be happier to pay just 14.99 for 50mbps than paying 39.99 for a 100mbps one. Hope you get my point.

i don't understand... what's the scam here in what OP posted?

verizon offered him $25 credit to stay. he called in and made sure he's getting that $25 credit in his bill. he's playing by the rules. what is he doing that's so wrong?

p.s. you're posting at 9:30pm ET. not really morning anywhere in the US Stick Out Tongue

1) telling a lie to get a deal.... 'say you are moving'.... where truth would be something like 'look for and find a better deal with competitor (does not have to be available in your area)' and tell V 'I found a better deal and would like to schedule my service be canceled on X day/date'.

2) calling in and saying something that is not true.... which would be true if "1)" was made true with a small revision.

you do not have to say anything, just make sure what you say is technically true and you should steer clear of all fraud by deceit. OP just seemed too go about achieving something by lying.

i agree that there is no reason to lie during the whole process. but the method used here is perfectly acceptable by all standards in my opinion... "i think price is too high, i'd like to cancel. the verizon system automatically emails $25 off. you use ingenuity and call to get the $ off applied instead of clicking the link. nothing about that sounds deceitful. we'd be completely playing by verizon's rules throughout.

Exactly... and full disclosure, I do not have, nor does my area have V fios/cable.

I liked the OPs post, just did not like the lying as I do not like lies and they were un necessary in this situation... though it does sound like OP was deceived by V because of OP's knowledge of clicking the link taking away other credits. Lol, V really knows how to get people's money.
