Verizon is teaming up with Amazon Wireless to offer new customers a nice $40 credit to their monthly bill when they purchase a new 4G LTE capable device. When signing up for a new two year agreement and required data package, the $40 will be credited to your account within three months of purchase. Fine print reads as below:
Receive a $40 credit on your monthly bill from Verizon with purchase of a 4G phone. Offer is valid between midnight PDT May 21, 2012, through 11:59 p.m. PDT May 24, 2012. New 4G smartphone activations and upgrades are eligible, including existing customers with 4G smartphones. This offer is sponsored by Verizon and is valid in the United States. The credit will appear on your bill and may take three billing cycles to appear. Standard early-cancellation fee and other up-front and monthly charges and fees may apply.
Feel free to spin this into a way that shows your frustration with Verizon and their decision to end unlimited data for longtime customers. Not that we encourage it, but we know it’s going to happen anyway.
