StevenA6: Unfortunately your response does not answer my question, so I don't know why it was marked as a "solution." My $40 discount comes directly from my veteran status only and indicates so on my monthly billing statement; I receive no discount for AutoPay enrollment. I would like a Verizon employee/moderator to tell me for sure, yes or no, whether I can qualify for a discount if I apply for the Verizon Visa Card. This is the make it or break it question for whether I will apply for this card. Gracias.
