Verizon offers new senior citizen plan

Wow. First the Coupe, and then this? Is Verizon trying to cash in on the older demographic? We think yes. The carrier has just announced a new wireless rate plan, cleverly entitled America’s Choice 65 Plus. For $30 a month subscribers receive 200 anytime minutes, 500 night and weekend minutes, and unlimited mobile to mobile. Nothing more. The plan requires an age verification process, and is not  available to anyone under the age of 65. It’s $10 cheaper than anything else the carrier offers, but it seems a bit meager in terms of features, and the age verification is very sneaky. An identically priced plan on T-Mobile gets you 300 anytime minutes and unlimited nights and weekends. Sprint offers 200 minutes for the same price, but neither of the aforementioned carriers requires you to be 65. Come on, Verizon!
