Free 100 extra minutes per month from Verizon

Going over your monthly wireless plan quota can be very costly. In August, when we had temporary problems with our home phone line after SunRocket went bust, we were billed $196.98 for my wife’s phone contract that usually costs us $37.78 ($0.45 for each of the 312 minutes she went over the plan limit).

Someone at SlickDeals has uncovered a way to bump that monthly limit up by 100 minutes on renewal by simply mentioning a promotion Verizon has going on. Might sound too good to be true (that was my first thought anyway) however it looks like we got a confirmation from another poster who claims to be a Verizon employee.

Technically speaking this deal does not have an expiration date on it. This is a save plan that we offer to our customers to get them to join up for another 2 years. I work in the store as a sales rep so we deal with this on a daily basis. It’s a pretty good promo actually and cost the company VERY little money. All thee above is true and it works perfectly fine, it works good if you have an overage because those extra mins offset your overage if need be.

I think I am going to give this a try when we renegotiate our next contract with Verizon. 100 extra minutes can’t hurt, it is $45 per months savings in case you go over limit. On the other hand, if you systematically go over limit then the best savings for you will be to change your plan to one with more minutes,… and get the 100 free minutes as well. ;-)
