Here's some good news for Verizon Fios and Verizon Wireless customers. If you have a smartphone on Verizon Wireless and you subscribe to the Verizon Fios triple play, you can save $20 on your monthly fees.
Verizon's offer starts today and runs until April 19. The so-called unified customer "thank you" offer allows customers to save $480 over two years just by using qualified services and registering for the savings.
The only "catch" to the deal is the level of service a user is subscribed to. In order to qualify, a Verizon Wireless subscriber must have at least one smartphone on the plan. As for the Fios service, the discount only applies to Quantum triple-play customers with at least 50Mbps level of high-speed Internet service. Other than that, Verizon says nothing else is required of the customer.
Verizon is offering the Quantum Fios service for $89.99 per month. With the wireless discount, a customer would be able to get it for $79.99 a month for as long as they maintain a Verizon Wireless smartphone account. They'll also receive a $10 discount on their Verizon Wireless bill for being subscribed to the Fios service.
This is the first wireless and broadband promotion that Verizon has run since the company bought out Vodafone's 45 percent stake in the Verizon Wireless business. Verizon paid $130 billion to buy out Vodafone last month in what ended up being the third-largest corporate acquisition ever.
