    Other discounts

    Military members are also eligible for a discount on select accessories:

    • 25% online when ordered through your My Verizon account
    • 10% when purchased at a Verizon wireless Retail store

  3. How do I get the military or veteran's discount? After I register, how do I check that my discount was applied?

    Learn about discount registration, validation and how to see your discount in your account by visiting our registration how to page.

  4. I’m a veteran or reservist and get a Verizon wireless discount from my current employer. Can I get the military discount on top of my employer's discount?

    No. You can only take advantage of only 1 of these discounts at a time. Visit our Corporate Employee Discounts FAQs for information that can help you choose your best option.

    Keep in mind:

    • Active duty military and veterans get unique discounts on unlimited data plans. Standard employer (non-military) discount agreements don't give discounts on unlimited data plan fees.
    • If you decide you want the other type of discount, you can switch your choice any time by re-registering on our Discounts by Verizon program page.

    Note: Validating your discount doesn't extend your wireless service contract. It just ensures you get the discount currently available under your organization's agreement with us.

  5. I’m a military spouse. Can I apply for the military discount?

    No. To be able to register and validate military service the person applying for the discount must be both*:

    • The military member
    • The Verizon wireless Account Owner or Account Manager

    If the account is in the name of your family member or friend, complete a Transfer of Service before registering for the discount.

    Find out more about changing the account to your name on our Transfer Your Service Support page.

  6. I'm a Gold Star Family member. Can I apply for the military discount?
