If you find yourself constantly running up against your monthly data cap, you can get an extra 2GB per month for free for the rest of your life thanks to a new offer from Verizon. All you have to do is upgrade or activate a new phone with device payment on XL or larger Verizon Plans, and you’ll get an extra 24GB of data every year to use for as long as you’re a Verizon subscriber.

Now, this also means you’ll have to pay for one of Verizon’s pricier data plans — its XL plan gives you 12GB of data for $80 per month and its XXL plan gives you 18GB of data for $100 per month. So the only way that this free extra 2GB of data is really worth it is if you’re already a heavy data user who doesn’t mind paying more each month.

The good news is that this new offer applies to family plans and Verizon says that “a family upgrading or activating new phones on four lines with XL or larger sizes can receive an extra 8 GB of data per month for the account.” Verizon also says you can share your 2GB of extra data across all devices registered to your account.
