  2. Where do I get my rebate form?

    If the equipment you purchased is eligible for a rebate and you purchased it from a Verizon Wireless store:

    1. Go to the My Documents and Receipts page in My Verizon.

    • On the receipt (if purchased from a Verizon Wireless store)
    • From the Rebate Center - Enter the required information to create and print a rebate form.

  3. How do I redeem a rebate offer?

    Mail in the following items and any other requested paperwork to the address on the rebate form.

    • For a Verizon Wireless store purchase, submit one of the following:
              • Verizon Wireless Equipment Receipt indicating equipment price paid and model purchased
              • Verizon Wireless Mail-In Rebate Form indicating equipment price paid and model purchased

    • For a Verizon Wireless Authorized Retailer purchase, you’ll need to provide a copy of your Customer Agreement or Verizon Wireless Small Business Receipt.

      Note: If you’re unsure if your purchase was made at a Verizon Wireless store or a Verizon Wireless Authorized Retailer, you can find out by searching the list of Verizon Wireless store locations.

    • A copy of itemized sales receipt clearly indicating:
              • Store Name
              • Date of Sale
              • Device purchased (make and model)

    Notes:
    • Make copies of all documents for your records before mailing them in.

    • If possible, it’s best to wait until you’re sure you won’t need to return the equipment before submitting your rebate form. If equipment is returned with the Proof of Purchase label removed from the box, the amount of the rebate will be deducted from the refund.

  11. What does “original white bar code label” mean? Can I send a copy with my rebate form?

    In order for your rebate request to be processed, we’ll need the original white bar code label. This includes the Proof of Purchase (UPC) bar code and Device ID (MEID / IMEI) label from the outside of the manufacturer’s box that your equipment came in.

    A photocopy of the bar code label won’t be accepted. Please cut the entire bar code label from the manufacturer’s box and send it along with the other necessary documents.

    Back to top
  12. There’s more than one bar code label on the box. Which one do I submit with my rebate request?

    The correct bar code label is normally located on the outside panel of the equipment box. The entire label, including the eligible Device ID (MEID / IMEI) and valid Proof of Purchase (UPC) bar code, must be cut from the equipment box and submitted. Please refer to your rebate form to match the correct Proof of Purchase (UPC) bar code number.

    Back to top
  13. Can I return my equipment if I remove the bar code label?

    The Proof of Purchase (UPC) and Device ID (MEID / IMEI) label is required for a full equipment refund. If you’re considering returning your new equipment, please wait until your return period is over and you've decided to keep your equipment before you send in your rebate request.

    Note: If equipment is returned and the Proof of Purchase (UPC) and Device ID label isn’t on the box, the amount of the refund will be reduced by the amount of the rebate. Return policies may vary at Verizon Wireless Authorized Retailer locations.
