Happy Monday V Team on today’s episode of Up To Speed Live, host Jennifer Marin shared a full news rundown.

As you know, the start of the 2022 school year is right around the corner. It’s an exciting time but it can also be stressful with the rising costs of school supplies, tuition, and of course the higher interest rates on student loans.

But the good news is, Verizon has your back. We’re looking to make that transition a little easier with affordable deals on back-to-school accessories and 5G devices, all on the network America relies on.

VIP back-to-school recommendations

Some of the folks who keep our stores running everyday, Verizon Insider Program’s Star Kendrick, Dan Mejer, Amanda Carver and Gabrielle Santiago shared all their recommendations for the best back-to-school items to get your hands on.

More ways to buy

If you can’t physically get to a store, remember that you can get free 2-day shipping on orders of $49 dollars or more.

You can also take advantage of in-store pickup, curbside pickup, or via our Express Lockers at select locations.

Savings for teachers and students

At Verizon teachers and college students can save up to $25 dollars a month on all of our 5G Unlimited plans.

And they can also get Verizon Home Internet starting at just $19.99 a month with auto pay, plus taxes and fees.

And team, be on the lookout for some new savings coming your way: later this week we’ll be sharing some back–to-school news for Fios home internet.

Verizon Innovative Learning HQ

There’s also a free online resource designed to help teachers and students reach their full potential: Verizon Innovative Learning HQ. This resource is part of Citizen Verizon and it provides K-12 teachers with useful resources such as lesson plans, learning apps, teacher training, and more.
