PSA: Verizon Auto Pay discount no longer works with PayPal debit cards

Verizon is one of the largest wireless network operators in the United States. The company allows users to do more than traditional calling and texting.

Verizon has an Auto Pay feature that allows customers to set up and automatically pay their cell phone bill. One can also get a monthly Auto Pay and paper-free billing discount of $10 if they are on an eligible plan.

Also, one needs to make sure that the auto payments are set up with a Verizon Visa Card, a debit card, or a bank account. If any other mode of payment is used then you will not receive the discount.

However, according to recent reports (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9), it appears that Verizon no longer considers PayPal debit cards as an eligible mode of payment for discounts.

Customers also allege that the company made no official communication or announcement in this regard, and silently discontinued the support.


This, of course, is bad news for those who have been using their PayPal debit cards to make payments. And understandably, those who make use of PayPal as their primary financial service are disappointed as well.

Apparently, some had to find out about these changes in their most recent statement, which is disappointing from Verizon.

A PayPal Business Debit card no longer qualifies as a qualified “debit” card to receive the autopay discount.

Worked since April of 2022, until this billing cycle.

Now, some customers are even reluctant to continue using Verizon’s service any more and are looking for carrier recommendations over the web.
