Many or all of the products featured here are from our partners who compensate us. This may influence which products we write about and where and how the product appears on a page. However, this does not influence our evaluations. Our opinions are our own. Here is a list of our partners and here's how we make money.

You can save money — and skip the contract and credit check — by going with a Verizon prepaid cell phone plan over a traditional plan. Verizon prepaid customers get a loyalty discount after three months on a qualifying monthly plan, making the carrier an appealing option for those shopping for a prepaid plan.

At a glance

  • Prepaid plans start at $35 for talk and text only

Monthly Plans

Verizon prepaid customers get a $5 per month loyalty discount after three months of service on eligible monthly plans. The discount grows to $10 per month after nine months of service. The prices below do not reflect the loyalty discount.

  • Talk and text: $35 per month; $30 with autopay discount

  • 5GB: $40 per month; $35 with autopay discount

  • 15GB: $50 per month; $45 with autopay discount

  • Unlimited: $65 per month; $60 with autopay discount

Family plan: Verizon offers its loyalty discount in place of a multi-line discount on most new prepaid plans. Each additional line, up to 10 lines total, gets its own data allotment, so there is no shared data.
