NEW YORK, June 22, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On June 26, Verizon will bring customers more of our best, from unique rewards to monthly discounts on your wireless bill, with the introduction of the Verizon Visa Card – the first credit card designed with the savvy, mobile customer in mind.
Verizon’s new credit card, issued by Synchrony, gives consumer wireless customers the ability to save on their monthly Verizon bill through rewards earned on everyday purchases and freedom to use those rewards toward Verizon purchases, including bill payment and the latest 5G phones and accessories.
Introducing Verizon Dollars.
With a new way to save comes a new form of currency called Verizon Dollars. Redeemable for all things Verizon, including new 5G devices, accessories and even your monthly Verizon Wireless bill, Verizon Dollars give customers incredible rewards earnings just for making everyday purchases. Spend 1 Verizon Dollar on Verizon purchases just like you’d spend $1 US Dollar. No limits on how much you can earn, no expiration date.
Here’s how it works.
Customers can save more, earn more and do more with the Verizon Visa Card. Once approved, the card can instantly be used on that day’s Verizon purchase. It’s the only credit card that is eligible for the Auto Pay discount of up to $10/mo per line on select plans. New Auto Pay customers who enroll with the card can get the best pricing on Unlimited Verizon plans and new cardholders can get up to $100 in wireless bill credits over 24 consecutive months when they use their new Verizon Visa Card to pay their monthly Verizon bill.
In addition to the best pricing available, cardholders will also earn Verizon Dollars on every purchase using their Verizon Visa Card everywhere Visa credit cards are accepted – including 4% on gas and grocery store/delivery purchases; 3% on dining/delivery and curbside pick-up purchases; 2% on Verizon purchases and 1% on all other purchases. Customers also have the ability to claim Verizon Dollars through the Verizon Up program and combine them with those earned by spending on their card.
“Providing more of our best when connecting with your friends, your family, and your digital world is at the forefront of everything we do,” said Frank Boulben, Senior Vice President of Consumer Marketing and Products at Verizon. “We created the Verizon Visa Card with our customers in mind, making it the only credit card in the world designed specifically to put Verizon customers first and give them more value, more ways to save and some of the best rewards in the industry for the things they purchase every day.”
“This card represents what consumers are demanding right now – a contactless, frictionless and digital-first experience,” said Tom Quindlen, executive vice president, CEO, Retail Card at Synchrony. “We worked in partnership with Verizon to create a unique, robust rewards program for their customers that uses simple and easy tools to apply, buy and service the card account.”
“Visa is proud to partner with Verizon on the introduction of the new Verizon Visa Card,” said Kirk Stuart, senior vice president, head of North America Merchant, Visa. “As consumers increasingly seek more ways to stay connected digitally, the Verizon Visa Card provides real savings on Verizon’s products and services, along with benefits for every day and essential purchases. We look forward to collaborating with Verizon on this exciting new program to deliver value for cardholders and enhance their daily payment experiences.”

There are no caps on rewards, no confusing expiration dates, no annual fee and no foreign transaction fees.
