Curious about the new Verizon Up program?

Verizon Up is transitioning to make it easier for members to upgrade and claim rewards! Best of all, Bonus Rewards are here to stay, so you’ll still have access to presale event tickets, Super Tickets, special anniversary offers, and more.

Note that while Verizon Up used to offer Monthly Rewards (like free gift cards!) these are no longer offered. However, we are hopeful that more awesome rewards like the free screen protector will be available on a more regular basis – who can say no to freebies?!

Head here to find out more about this program revamp.

    I claimed this reward but there are no screen protectors for mine or my daughter’s phones (iPhone 11 & 11 Pro Max), so this reward is useless. I miss their old rewards program!

    • Veronica

      I have the same issue.. and my phone isnt even old. Im going to try in store.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Bummer! Thanks for letting us know, Brandy.

    • EL

      Why dont you just get it for a friend or relative….since its free….

    • Sue

      I miss the old one too. I know whenever companies say they are updating their rewards program to make it better, it usually means it’s better for them & worse for the customers.

  2. stephanietaylor

    Yes, pretty disappointing that I claimed this reward and there ain’t even one available for iPhone 11

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Hoping you might be able to claim your reward in-stores for a screen protector that fits your model! 🤞❤️

  3. **Lisa**

    I too miss the old rewards. I don’t even bother looking them up anymore. Mine are always useless. Sad. Verizon certainly dropped the ball with this new rewards program.

  4. acgold

    I don’t even have the special rewards tab!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Darn! Maybe check to see if there is an app update to grab. Then click on the Verizon Up tab and head over to the Special Offers section. Hoping that does the trick! 🤞💞

      • acgold

        Thanks! Everything is updated, as I have a new iPhone. They are just getting cheap with the rewards.

  5. Kat

    Even if this reward doesn’t work for you, go back into Verizon Up and select the reward that donates to Wounded Warrior Project. The only thing required from you is to claim the offer and push a button or two.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the suggestion, Kat! ❤️❤️

    • JJ

      Was literally *that* easy. So wish we could donate the cost of these screen protectors instead (my phone isn’t included either), but I fully believe that every dollar adds up. Go clickety, click too! Easy peezy.

  6. Kari H

    I have an iPhone11 Pro and the screen protector isn’t even available. My phone isn’t even two years old. Maybe it’s a ploy so they can get you to upgrade? Ugh, very disappointing!

    • SMB2005

      No because I have a 13 pro and there aren’t any for that either 😳

  7. lbmomma

    It seems to be gone now. I tried to order and it wouldn’t go through. Just went back and it’s not even in the offers. Ugh.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      DARN! We’re still finding it available now. Maybe wait a bit and check back. Hoping it pops up for you soon! 🙌🤞💞

      • lbmomma

        Haha. It was in my orders. It went through with no notification. Thanks!

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Yay! Happy you found it had already went through for you! You’re SO very welcome! Thanks a bunch for the update! 🥰

  8. Julie

    I also have an iphone 11 and went to my local store to see if they had any. They only had 12/12 Pro but said it would fit. I haven’t installed it yet but it looks like the right size. It’s worth a shot for $0!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thank you for sharing, Julie! Good to know! 🙌

  9. Babymair

    Hi, it keeps asking me for a credit card, even tho its 0.00$.and it won’t let me enter the information, or it keeps saying the name is incorrect..uuuuggg .and my husband needs a new screen protector badly. Do you think they are gone already? Thx for any help .. and thx Collin and team for at least letting me know about this. God Bless.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re SO welcome! Sorry to hear about the issues. 💖We did just check for this and it is available. Maybe close out your app and then open it back up again. Hoping you can grab it soon! 🥰🤗

  10. ashley-21

    Darn! I know that I should always look at the comments before jumping on these deals! I claimed it and of course there are no protectors for the iPhone 11 😬 I doubt they have them in store either because they seem to only carry accessories for the newest editions. Very disappointing.

  11. Kim

    None for Galaxy S10 or S21 or S22…fyi!

    • Nicole (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for that info, Kim!

  12. Lisa

    I didn’t receive a B&N gift card offer but so glad this post prompted me to check as I had a $5 Verizon card reward available, which can be used toward bill payments!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Happy you culd grab that one!

    • Sara

      Only if $5 is at least 20% of your bill. I tried that last month on a $93.04 bill. The app wanted me to pay $18.61 from that $5 gift card. The app had already recognized that there was only $5 on the gift card.

      You can also only use one gift card per payment, and you can only use two payment methods total.

      I have two useless $5 Verizon gift cards. They are useless because I don’t buy anything directly from Verizon other than service. I buy my Samsung phones from Samsung and accessories from Amazon. I sacrifice wifi calling doing that, even though my phone is capable of wifi calling. Verizon blocks that feature unless you buy the phone from them.

  13. SLA

    $5 Barnes & Noble was nice. My daughter can go pick out a new book. Wish they’d have these rewards monthly like before.

  14. ldickens

    I got the $3 Barnes and Noble gift card if anyone wants to trade something for it. lisadickens08@yahoo.com

  15. M

    Verizon $5 card for me. Now to figure out how to use it lol

  16. Tricia

    Omg I’m so glad I looked because I had an offer for a $10 amazon gift card!!! Woohoo!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Nice score, Tricia! 🎉💖
