Adding free minutes to your Verizon prepaid cell phone will help you stretch your paid minutes even further. If you're on the go and tend to use your prepaid phone regularly, minutes get spent quickly. You can extend your minutes with free offers from Verizon coupled with non-Verizon offers.
Sign up for email newsletters from Verizon Wireless and watch out for occasional promotional offers. Occasionally, Verizon may send a promotional code for extra time when you purchase minutes to add to your prepaid phone.
Watch newspaper ads and sales fliers for your favorite department stores. During special occasions and holidays, they may offer coupons or deals on cell phones and free minutes.
Choose the $3.99 per day Verizon prepaid bundle, which gives you unlimited nights and weekends. Nighttime calling begins at 9:01 p.m. and ends at 5:59 a.m.
Subscribe to the $0.99-per-day Verizon prepaid package, and you can talk to friends and family who also have prepaid or monthly subscription Verizon service absolutely free. There is no limit on how long you can talk when you call other Verizon subscribers.
Register for a Phone Lagoon account and participate in their free surveys and offers. Keep your eye on available offers, as from time to time you may be able to earn free Verizon minutes for your prepaid account.
Browse online auction offers on eBay. Some sellers offer minute bundles that come with extra minutes at no cost.
Research all online offers and beware of scams phishing for your personal information.
