I received the Verizon My Rewards+ Visa Prepaid Card recently after redeeming from my Verizon home phone and DSL account. Turns out, this card is part of the MyPrepaidCenter.com network and has it’s own 5% cash back program. While with only $10 in my account, this program isn’t much use to me but I can see that it could be useful if you are willing to wait for your balance to build up or have a large starting balance.

Verizon currently has a rewards program to reward loyal customers who pay their bills on time called My Verizon Rewards. This rewards program works similar to credit card points where every 100 points is redeemable for $1.

You can redeem for gift cards from stores like Amazon.com, Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks or even better, for a Visa prepaid card. Once you open an account, you can get your future reward redemption to get loaded on the card. I just redeemed for $10 on the Visa prepaid card.

If you received the notice this month or have yet to receive it (you should get notified by December), your deadline is June 7, 2013 and deadline to opt out or object the settlement is January 13, 2013. I received my notice via email sometime in June and I’m signed up for automatic bill pay charged directly to my credit card.
