Verizon softens its unlimited prepaid deals with a (limited) Disney+ freebie

Written by admin

It’s safe to say that Verizon’s prepaid plans aren’t the cheapest (or most affordable) options US wireless consumers can get these days, but while the leading provider has no known intentions to cut its pay-as-you-go prices anytime soon, at least you can look forward to a new one , warm extra.

Starting today, July 27, new and upgrading Verizon Prepaid customers will get six free months of Disney+ access included with their Unlimited and Unlimited Plus plans. That’s exactly what Big Red’s postpaid subscribers get with a $70 5G Start or $80 5G Do More service tier, although it’s clearly not quite as valuable a freebie as what’s included in an $90 5G Get option. More or $80 5G Play More.
Mind you, Verizon’s prepaid Unlimited and Unlimited Plus plans start at $65 and $75 per month respectively, and drop by $5 with Auto Pay after your first 30 days of service and score you additional loyalty discounts of $5 and $10 per month after four and 10 months of continuous service, respectively.
Unfortunately, existing Prepaid Unlimited and Unlimited Plus users are not eligible for the six-month Disney+ freebie, with a new activation between today and January 31, 2023 being the main requirement and limitation of this otherwise simple, straight forward and cool deal.
There’s also a pretty tricky special condition at the end of Disney to consider, as only new subscribers to the wildly popular streaming platform released in 2019 can get this Verizon offer. If you manage to take advantage of the extended free trial, please note that you will be automatically charged $7.99 per month after the end of your promotional period if you do not cancel your subscription.

All in all timid, this move could pressure T-Mobile to distribute some of its postpaid free Netflix love to prepaid customers, who are currently charged $50 a month for “unlimited” services without any kind of streaming benefits. (Prepaid) game on!
