Verizon Up is a fairly new completely credit based loyalty program, where Verizon customers gain credits each month based on their monthly bills. Basically, you earn 1 credit with every $300 you spend on your Verizon Wireless monthly bill. These credits racked up can add up to some amazing rewards – from once-in-a-lifetime experiences (think front row tickets) to offers on brands like Apple Music, Uber, JetBlue, and more. Credit can be redeemed through the My Verizon App. Plus, let’s not forget it’s holiday season and you’ll find some of the best discounts and credits for holiday gifts.
Here are some Pros and Cons of Verizon Up:
Earn Credits – you can earn credits through the My Verizon App and credits earned can be claimed as rewards.
Sharing the Rewards – once you receive the credits, you can use them yourself or share with a partner to claim the rewords.
Rewards you can actually use– Even if you’re not in the big leagues in terms of reward status, the rewards are actually pretty useful. For example, some rewards include 20 percent off on at least 10 Uber rides within 30 days, 3 months of HBO Now, or $5 Starbucks gift card (perfect for stocking stuffers).
Super Tickets – Now, if you are in the big leagues, you could be looking at some incredible experiences such as front row seats at concerts, tickets for sporting events and more.
Sign Up requires App – I get it. Why do you have to do more work to get these? You do need to download the My Verizon App to receive your credits and rewards.
Credit Expiration – There is also a 60 day expiration for redeeming your credits.
Personal Info – I’ve heard some complaints about the fact that the Verizon App asks you to share your device information, address, location etc. Believe me, the conspiracy theorist in me is definitely not a fan of having to divulge personal information, but when you think about it, it’s not like Verizon doesn’t already have this information about you. Them and the secret service.
