PSA: Verizon Military Discount Grandfathering - $40/month vs $25/month

I heard about the plan changes coming up and then I was reading some posts in this thread where a couple users were talking about the military discount and one mentioned grandfathering (thanks wspfan).

So I got on the chat myself to confirm. The chat rep told me the same thing wspfan heard, that if you get on the military discount with $40 off for 4 unlimited lines now you are grandfathered and will get $40 dollars off with the new plans when they go live on the 5th. If you add your discount on the 5th or after, the max military discount will be $25 dollars with 4 or 5 lines (the rep said $25 but our account does have 5 lines and those multiples work out).

We'll see if it works out for us but the rep seemed confident. I share an account with my brother and for a long time his employer discount was better than my military discount so we never added it. I just uploaded my DD-214 tonight and the rep thinks that was good enough to secure the grandfathered discount. If not, I have the chat transcript so hopefully they will honor it either way.

I figured this bit of info is important enough for it's own thread. Military Verizon users can probably save an extra $15 bucks a month indefinitely if they jump on this.

Thanks!

Because it's not a deal and super niche.

I'm going to switch to one of the new plans because I will save $5 per line or $20 per month. I assume I wait until after I switch to apply for the military discount? So I can save another $20-$25/month? Also I can't find my DD-214. I do have a veterans card issued by my county and another document from the military. Hope that is good enough.
