Simplify Your Life & Enter to Win $10,000

by Employee ‎08-24-2010 02:34 PM - edited ‎08-24-2010 02:36 PM

In our latest paperless billing campaign, The Great Paper Escape, you can make life easier for yourself and earn a chance to win prizes including a $10,000 grand prize.


Those who make the switch to receive their bills online by Dec. 31 will be automatically entered to win.   If you sign-up for an auto pay plan you earn a second entry in the grand prize drawing. Don’t worry, if you’re already receiving and paying your Verizon bill online (automatic payment or not), you also qualify for the sweepstakes simply by logging onto your My Verizon account.



Customers signing up (and those already enrolled) for paperless billing will also have an opportunity to play a daily Instant-Win game for prizes ranging from reusable tote bags to an energy-efficient washer-dryer combo, $50 Verizon Perks gift cards or a Trek Eco Urban bicycle. 


Another reason to go paperless, that you probably would not have expected, is that banking online, receiving bills and statements online, and paying those bills online makes people happier, at least according to recent research. 


Still not convinced to make the switch? Last year alone, our customers saved more than 68,000 trees by going paperless—almost three times the number of  trees in  New York’s Central Park. More than 168,000 customers made the switch during our last paperless billing drive, and our goal for the Great Paper Escape is 250,000 customers.


One of us going paperless saves a little, but when we all do it saves a forest. Join the Network Effect: If you haven’t done so yet, visit  and sign-up for paperless billing today.
