NEW YORK, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Verizon's FiOS and High Speed Internet service bundles now come with an additional reward: a Verizon Visa® prepaid card worth up to $200 toward the purchase of a new DROID smartphone of the customer's choice.
"We're enhancing the value for our TV and broadband customers by adding another screen to their viewing options with this DROID smartphone offer," said Mike Ritter, Verizon's chief marketing officer for consumer wireline and business services. "FiOS customers can now enjoy their favorite movies and photos, plus more, on their TV, laptop, home computer and DROID screen, with the crystal-clear programming of Verizon's fiber-to-the-home network and the largest, most reliable wireless 3G network.
"HSI-bundle subscribers can also use their new DROID to tune in to outstanding mobile viewing opportunities offered by DIRECTV® as well as other video services like YouTube," Ritter added. "The mobile video experiences we are creating through Verizon's advanced fiber and wireless networks are on a steady path of continual enhancement and will only become more versatile in the months ahead."
A Verizon Visa prepaid card issued by Meta Bank™ is available for customers choosing either FiOS or HSI copper-line-based bundles, including all quad-, triple- and double-play bundles.
In addition, Verizon announced that quad-play bundles of Internet, TV, home phone and wireless service are now available in all Verizon landline service areas, with the expansion of the bundles to the company's markets in California, Florida and Texas.

New Verizon customers who sign up for FiOS TV and Internet service will receive a $200 reward card that can be used for the DROID phone of their choice when they add FiOS home phone service to two-year triple-play bundles starting at $90 a month and add a qualifying Verizon Wireless calling plan. That represents an additional $9.99-a-month discount off the same FiOS bundle. Verizon Wireless voice plans start at $39.99 a month with the FiOS bundles, and unlimited wireless data plans are available for $29.99 a month, with a two-year commitment.
New FiOS customers get an additional discount of $5 a month for 24 months off the price of a triple-play bundle when they sign up online.
FiOS customers adding either new TV or new Internet service to a double-, triple- or quad-play bundle are eligible for a $100 reward card.
The $200 reward card, which can be redeemed anywhere Visa debit cards are accepted, also is available with new triple-play bundles of Verizon HSI, Freedom Essentials calling plan and DIRECTV® CHOICE XTRA™, starting at $99.99 a month for a year. Customers who add new HSI to their Verizon voice service, or add voice service to their existing HSI service to create a new double-play bundle will be eligible for a $100 reward card. They can also get a $100 reward card if they add a new wireless plan to their existing double bundle of HSI and voice service.
All FiOS bundles come with Verizon's 30-day Worry-Free Guarantee allowing customers to cancel their service within 30 days of the date of activation, with no termination fee, if they are not completely satisfied.
All bundles that include Verizon Wireless require ONE-BILL®, which combines charges for all Verizon services onto one monthly statement. There are numerous options for these bundles, based on the Verizon Wireless calling plan chosen, by state and by broadband eligibility.
Further details on the Verizon bundle plans are available by calling 1-800-VERIZON (1-800-837-4966).
