AARP membership comes with many great discounts, including insurance, car rentals, hotels, vacation packages, and of course, cell phone plans, phones, and accessories.

Verizon doesn’t offer an AARP discount, but there are other ways to save on your cell phone bill with AARP. We explain these below.

Is There an AARP Verizon Discount?

Verizon does not offer an AARP discount.

Verizon Fios — which offers internet, TV, and digital voice phone bundles — also does not offer an AARP or senior discount.

Verizon instead offers discounts to employees of or people affiliated with other organizations.

To check if your organization has an agreement with Verizon Wireless, contact your HR department or visit Verizon’s discount program page and enter your work email address in the section labeled ‘Not Yet a Verizon Customer.’

For example, many teachers can receive an 18% discount, and veterans and active duty military service members are offered a 15% discount off their monthly Verizon Wireless service and a 25% discount off select accessories.
