On today’s Up To Speed, host Raquel Wilson introduced two stories that can help improve your and your family’s health, both physically and financially.

A stackable accessory deal

Our resident tech expert George Koroneos shared big news: Now getting vaccinated isn’t just good for your health, it’s good for your wallet. That’s because Verizon is now offering 10% off an accessory to Verizon customers who have received a COVID-19 vaccination.

What makes this deal extra special is that it is stackable, meaning that you can add this extra 10% off to most existing accessory offers, like Dads & Grads, for huge savings on the best tech.

Perhaps you’ve been eyeing the Arlo video doorbell? Looking at the Fitbit Charge 4? Or are in the market for an Anker Eufy RoboVac 35C? You can get a great deal on every one, plus many more.

The best part is that those who serve ‒ our teachers, nurses, first responders and military personnel ‒ are also eligible for this offer. Verizon employees, this is for you, too. So what are you waiting for? Get stacking!

Family Money

Most parents have a number of frustrations when it comes to raising kids, but two that often appear at the top of the list are chores not being done and money being poorly spent.

Now there’s a tool to help with both. Verizon Family Money helps empower my kids to become financially savvy, thanks to an easy-to-use app and a prepaid debit card.

Each child gets access to an app geared toward their age group along with the sense of independence when spending their money that is usually reserved for adults. Up to five kids in each family can get their own prepaid debit card and virtual savings Vault. As they complete chores or other tasks, money is automatically added to their accounts.

Parents can have peace of mind knowing they can set up allowances, monitor their kids’ spending and lock their cards, if needed.

“It’s amazing watching them grow in their knowledge, not to mention actually volunteering to do the dishes,” said Kate. “By using the app and the card, they experience first-hand what it means to earn, spend and save.”

If you think your kids could use some financial education, check out Family Money. You can try it for 30 days on Verizon.

Not a Verizon customer? Not a problem. Verizon and non-Verizon customers can download the Verizon Family Money app from the Google Play and Apple App Store. Create a Verizon Family Money account and link a verified bank account.

At the end of the 30-day trial period, the service auto-renews for $5.99 per month. Family Money customers will not be charged on their Verizon bill. The $5.99 fee, which includes up to 5 kids, will be debited from the parent’s Wallet in the app.
