Verizon promo: Get vaxxed and get 10 percent off accessories




We’ve seen all kinds of incentives to get people vaccinated against Covid-19, including free donuts, free beer, and Six Flags tickets. Now Verizon is getting into the act.


The wireless carrier is offering customers a 10 percent discount off any Verizon accessory, dropping the price, among other items, on Apple’s AirPods Pro down to $180.


The promotion applies to Verizon customers who has gotten at least one Covid-19 vaccine, though first responders, nurses, teachers and members of the military are also eligible.


Starting on June 15 and running through the end of July, you can visit Verizon.com/discounts/vaccination, fill out a questionnaire, and then receive a promo code via text within 24 hours after hitting submit. You can redeem the code in a Verizon store or at Verizon.com to receive your one-time discount on an accessory of your choosing, with the only exception being the few accessories whose price ends with $.97, for reasons that Verizon hasn't explained.


Nor has Verizon spelled out how you actually prove that you’ve been vaccinated.


Codes must be redeemed by August 14, and only one promo code per Verizon mobile number will be eligible.


The vaccination discount applies even on items that are already on sale under a separate Verizon promotion.


Verizon listed some the accessories that are eligible for the discount, including but not limited to:

  • Sony WH-1000XM4 Wireless Noise-Canceling Headphones for $269.99 (reg. $349.99; 6/15-6/20)

  • Eufy RoboVac G30 Verge for $224.99 (reg. $349.99; 6/15-6/20)

  • JBL Quantum ONE Gaming headset for $224.99 (reg. $349.99; 6/15-6/27)

  • Google Nest Hub Max for $180.88 (reg. $229.99; 6/15-6/27)

  • Arlo Video Doorbell for $116.99 (reg. $149.99; 6/15-7/4)

  • Razer Kishi for Android (Xbox) Gaming Controller for $80.99 (reg. $99.99; 6/15-6/19)

  • Fitbit Charge 4 for $89.99 (reg. $129.99; 6/14-6/19)


While receiving any discount is nice, my own view is that people should get vaccinated because it is the smart thing to do for themselves and for others, unless they have medical conditions that dictate otherwise.
