    So, what did you do? Pay with your credit card before the autopay time?

    This isn't new. Already been talked about on reddit for weeks and if you're not gong to follow the rules then you shouldn't get the discount. Verizon pays less in transaction fees with debit/checking account. That's why you get the discount. The savings are passed on to you. If you're not saving Verizon money on fees you shouldn't get the discount. Checking accounts are not hard to open

    Or maybe their card expired and they had to use another payment(could still be a debit card) for that month. You don’t need to come in and defend your precious Verizon, we get it, they can do no wrong in your eyes.

    An explanation of exactly what happened would be helpful. Posting a message from VZW doesn't tell us the situation.

    The answer is quite clear to me in the second sentence. Last month the $5 discount was not applied and it will be doubled on the next invoice.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....

    My first reading was the loss of the credit due to not letting it go out of the checking account/debit card. Second reading, it looks like they will be applying a missing credit.
    iPhone X is my current primary phone. I have older model iPhones and Moto phones available on other lines. Currently prepaid, though would consider postpaid on right plan.

    It's a debit adjustment, not a credit. They're charging him back $10 for non-compliance with the agreement. We just don't know exactly how he didn't comply.

    Interesting. I hadn't noticed that the post-paid plans auto-pay discount requires bank account payment or debit card only.

    I just added a prepaid account and it offers a $5/month auto-pay discount if you pay by credit card for auto-pay (or debit card).

    It is odd that postpaid requires checking or debit, but prepaid doesn't. I just switched 3 lines over to prepaid last week and set up auto pay on my capital one card. It worked fine and gave me the discount (but technically I'm using the discounted refill cards). My lines still on postpaid for the next few months still requires the debit or checking.

    Yeah, a month or so ago they told me I needed to switch to a checking account debit from my credit card I had been using for many years or I’d lose my discount. No biggie.

    banks will send you a new card well in advance before it expires. If not get a less crappy bank. Also if you card expires you can still choose to use your actual checking account.

    You don’t need to come in and defend your precious Verizon, we get it, they can do no wrong in your eyes.
    I'm not defending them and they are not doing wrong in this case. It's people with "Give me free stuff or you are F-ing me over" attitude that ruin things. Grow up. The rules say checking account/debit they have a good reason for such rules. Follow the rules or don't get the discount or get a different carrier.

    Maybe Verizon should just take the discount away for everyone then you wouldn't be getting screwed over and it won't be an issue anymore. or maybe they should allow credit cards but raise prices to compensate for that. That sounds fair right?

    I see plenty of stores that do not allow CC purchases below a certain amount. Are they being "unfair"? Or do they not want to lose money because someone decides to pay for a pack of gum with a credit card where the fees are more than the gum?

    Because people can change prepaid carriers like thy change their under wear. The assumption is prepaid people are poorer and/or have bad credit. Maybe less likely to have checking accounts. Also prepaid is a MUCH smaller part of Verizon. Postpaid accounts outnumber repaid at least a dozen to one probably more.

    They are most likely not following the terms of the merchant credit card agreement. I know with AMEX they are not allowed to require a minimum. Any time I see a merchant with that sign, I use my AMEX and they take it. Even if it's below the minimum they posted. Since they know they aren't allowed to require a minimum. And on the rare time a merchant tells me I can't use my card without purchasing a minimum amount, then they get reported to AMEX.
