Say bye, bye to credits!

Verizon Up Rewards now lets rewards members pick one new monthly reward each month without needing to use a credit.

Starting on the 1st of each month, you’ll be able to claim a reward from the monthly rewards carousel in the My Verizon app. Once you claim a Monthly Reward, you won’t be able to claim another until the start of the next month. And with this change, you’ll no longer have to track when you receive credits or when they expire!


Haven’t joined the Verizon Up program yet?

Now would be a great time to do so! To access the rewards program, log in or download the Verizon app via iTunes or Google Play.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, create a free account and then tap the Choose Reward option and you should find your offers there including possible gift card offers. Each month, Verizon offers members a free reward – it must be redeemed by the last day of the month in which it was added to your account.

    It’s only showing it available as one of my May credit chooses. It’s not a bonus reward.

    • GTgrad

      Same for me, maybe because it was a bonus last month. I have been having trouble using it though because when I’m buying online, websites decline the payment since the purchase is over $5. This even happened when I had another payment method added. There’s no barcode for a cashier to scan either, just numbers for them to type in. I haven’t wanted to bother them to do that during this time since I’m only going to the grocery store and they’re so busy anyway.

      • Klp

        I’ve had trouble using it too and came on here to see if anyone has been successful with using the Visa card.

        • lightup

          Same, and tried using it on Amazon after ‘converting’ still doesn’t work.

        • Joe

          I used it to buy a $5 Amazon gift card for myself. That is what I usually do with small gift card amounts.

          • Heather V.

            This is what I did as well! Works like a charm.

          • Charlie Vestal

            How do you do that will you walk me through the steps

      • Megan

        I find the easiest way to redeem these is to use it to buy an amazon gift card online. Find the digital amazon gift cards, add to cart for $5, then add a new payment method. Enter the visa gift card details. Send the egift card to yourself. Add amazon gift card to your own account. It seems like a lot of steps, but I also had trouble using these in store.

        • ReneeAnn

          When I select new payment method it wants me to enter a card number and expiration date. This has a code and a long pin with several numbers and letters. How on earth do you get an amazon credit with that?

          • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

            Hi ReneeAnn! We have just added the steps to do this, to the post above. Hoping that helps!

            • ReneeAnn

              Nope, that doesn’t help me because my $5 visa doesn’t have a card number and exp date. It has a 6 digit code and a 20 digit/letter pin! Anyone else??

              • nancythigpin

                Hi there, you have to use the number and pin to convert it to the Visa gift card first. You can do this by choosing the use now option and it’ll walk you through the steps. After you convert it, it will give you the regular visa numbers.

                • ReneeAnn

                  Oh my gosh thank you, I was so confused! Clicked the link from my email and filled in all that info and got it.

                • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

                  Thanks so much for your helpful comment! 🙌

              • Charlie Vestal

                Same way with me, please help lol

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Thanks so much for the helpful suggestion, Megan! We have added those steps above!

  2. Kelly

    I chose No Hungry Kid instead of a $5 visa.

    No credit needed because they don’t use “credits” anymore, but it is using your once a month gift.

  3. Kathy

    I used it on Amazon to reload my gift card. In other words I have a $5 Amazon credit.

    • jes

      Great idea, thank you

    • ReneeAnn

      How? It wants me to put in a card number with expiration date. No option for code and pin.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SO awesome! Glad you could grab the $5 Amazon credit. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Thia

    I usually select the discount for devices so I’m not sure what the Visa looks like. I wonder if you can add it to paypal.

    • hip2trade

      I added a visa to PayPal. It wasn’t this one but probably still the same. I won one from Lucky Charms sweepstakes which ends May 31. If you choose a big box store you win $100 visa, if you choose Walmart or Target you would win $50. (If you win) I would suggest entering. Over 10,000 winners.

      • Dave

        Thanks for the tip on the Lucky Charms Sweepstakes! I just won a $50 Gift Card on my first try!

        • hip2trade

          Awesome! 😊

  5. Thia

    That’s the other thing I was going to suggest, AMAZON! Great job Kathy!

  6. Amy

    I used mine to buy $5 Target giftcard

    • Jeanette

      Thank you for the suggestion

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Thanks for sharing!

  7. H

    My option is to use my May monthly credit for the $5 visa gift card – my free option is 40% off flowers

  8. mhoundy

    Thank you, worked perfect for me!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Woohoo! SO glad to hear that! You’re most welcome!

  9. Gina G.

    Was a May reward option for me, not free.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! This offer is part of their new program. Here are the details on that – “Verizon Up Rewards now lets rewards members pick one new monthly reward each month without needing to use a credit.”

      Hoping you can grab it!

  10. L

    Amazon gift card purchase is a great idea!

    • Amanda

      I agree!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      It sure is! We have added the steps to grab that above!

  11. Sla1981

    I had to use a credit to get it. 🙁
    So I got my reward $ instead.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! This option is a part of their new program as noted above – “Verizon Up Rewards now lets rewards members pick one new monthly reward each month without needing to use a credit.”
      Hoping this might help!

      • Sla1981

        It does help but your post makes it seem free….but you have to use your May credit to get it which you only get one of. I would word it different next time. Sometimes they actually have free ones.

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Thanks so much for commenting. We have updated the details on this.

  12. teacakequeen

    In reply to Megan, Thanks so much for the Amazon suggestion! It worked perfectly for me! I had been trying to use my VISA debit card from last moth to no avail. I grabbed this months as well. Now I have $10!! Whoop whoop!!!! 😃❤️🎉 Buying a gift card for the option worked great!

  13. vcraft22

    There is also an option to donate to a fund to feed Hungry Children— the $5 reward goes to feed children in need

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww, LOVE that! Thanks for mentioning this!

  14. Zita

    Thank you SO much. I never knew you could add to your amazon account balance!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Zita! SO glad that tip was helpful!

  15. Kellie

    Whish u was a Verzion up Rewards member could use $5 giftcard(I have Boost Moblie)

  16. kgrubbs

    You do need a credit for it. Its a lie when you say no credit needed and its for the may rewards not the free rewards

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi there! This offer is a part of their new program. Verizon Up Rewards now lets rewards members pick one new monthly reward each month without needing to use a credit. Hope this helps!

  17. Lisa

    You can also use the Visa card to get Amazon credit and then use it toward a donation to your favorite charity by purchasing something for them from their Amazon wishlist.

  18. Pam

    There have been a few posts similar to this, but it does require you to use your monthly credit. I do love seeing the reminders when there is an actual free item with no credit required as I don’t check Verizon daily.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Hi Pam! This offer is a part of their new program. Members can now pick one new monthly reward each month without needing to use a credit. Hoping that helps!

      • Amber F

        No, credit is no longer needed, but you only get 1 pick per month. So by choosing this as your option, you can miss out on other choices that are possibly worth more. Only the bonus offers are truly no strings attached in regards to requiring you to choose. Please clarify this when you post these each month. I personally would have been irritated if I got the Visa GC rather than the $10 device bucks available, and I’m sure there are plenty of people who will gloss over this post and not realize their options.

        • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

          Thanks so much for taking the time to mention this. We have updated the post details.

  19. Jay

    Mine was my May reward, not free 🙁 Also the page when I click “use now” wont load, so I can’t even get a number for the VISA card.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh darn! This offer is part of their new program where not credit is needed. Maybe check once more in a different browser. Hoping it loads up for you soon!

  20. MargieL

    I also can’t get it to load when I hit “use now” so it won’t convert for me. Maybe they are getting blasted right now.

    • Nicole

      Same

    • CINDY ZOLONDEK

      Same for me..

  21. MargieL

    I also can’t get it to load when I hit “use now”. They may be getting bombarded right now??

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yeah, could be. Maybe wait a bit and try again. Hoping it works for you real soon!

  22. ldickens

    Added Bonus- I redeemed mine through Amazon and then ran the Amazon e-receipt option in Fetch and was awarded 25 Fetch points for purchasing the Amazon gift card!

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      SWEET! Thanks for letting us know! Great score!

  23. Rachel

    I can’t get it to go through to even load to my account 🙁

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh darn! Maybe wait a bit and check again. Hoping it works for you soon!

  24. Munoz247

    I got a free 8×10 canvas in the Verizon bonus rewards 😁😁

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Aww, You’re very welcome! We SO appreciate YOU acgold. Thanks a TON for your kind words. They sure brightened my day! 💖

  25. cschmidtoe

    Thank you for the suggestion and steps to turn it in to an Amazon gift card. It worked like a charm! I love this site and all the helpful individuals that comment on the posts!!!!

  26. Kylie

    Thanks! I used mine to get the free 2 month trial of the noggin app. I was annoyed they were giving the free trial but required a credit card. This $5 card worked!
