For people who love to stream media (movies, music, tv shows), you want to get as much free data as you can, especially if you’re always on the go. So if you’re a Verizon subscriber or you’re planning to become one, then you’ll be happy to know that they’re bringing back an old promo that will make you happy. When you upgrade your current plan or you’re transferring from another network to bigger plans, you’ll receive 24GB of annual bonus data or 2GB bonus data.

This promo is open to existing subscribers that will be upgrading to the XL plan or larger Verizon plans or activating a new device, you will receive 2GB of monthly bonus data. And the great thing about it is that you can even share this data if you yourself don’t use it much but you have family members who are more data hungry. If you’re a family of four that are all on a Verizon family plan and you decide to upgrade, then this means you’ll receive an extra 8GB every month.

You will be able to share the data with your other devices like tablets and connected devices. But you will not receive the 2GB monthly bonus if you upgrade them. You are also allowed to add as many as 10 lines in your account, and if the line is in the XL plan or higher plan, you will still get that 2GB bonus. Your line or lines must remain active to receive the bonus data.

While your data will be for life, this promo is for a limited time only. Verizon did not specify until when it will be, but if you plan to upgrade or switch to them, now should be a good time if it’s added data you’re after. For switchers, the carrier has another ongoing promo where you can receive up to $650 just for choosing Verizon.
