Special Wireless Business Savings for Washington Farm Bureau Members
Your company may be eligible to receive special savings from Verizon Wireless. These benefits are the result of an agreement negotiated by Washington Farm Bureau and Verizon Wireless to help you save some money! Your business will need meet a few qualification to take advantage of the discounts. First, you need to derive a majority your income from your agriculture based business. Second, you need to have (and maintain) an active voting or business membership with the farm Bureau. Third, your Verizon Wireless account will need to be a business account under your farm or business name. You may qualify to extend these benefits to your employee’s personal lines, if your business meets additional requirements and maintains a minimum of five lines. The employees will need to use the company’s member number to obtain the discount.
In order to set up an account and take advantage of these discounts, each Washington Farm Bureau member company must sign its own agreement with Verizon Wireless. Existing members who already have Verizon Wireless must complete the agreement as well. The new contract will supersede any existing contract.

Some restrictions may apply: To be eligible a voting or business member must derive an annual income of $2,500 or more either directly or indirectly from agricultural endeavors.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is it?
The Washington Farm Bureau has negotiated a Verizon deal for Farm/Ag Businesses. Basically, any Farm or Ag Business that generates substantially all of their revenue from agriculture and is a Farm Bureau member will be able to apply for a 20% Farm Bureau discount off Verizon Wireless lines of $34.99 or higher.
How does it work?
You can reach out to Verizon via email WAFarm.Bureau@Verizonwireless.com , a Verizon representative will then contact you with instructions to set up the discount for your Farm/Ag Business. If your Verizon account is in your personal name, you will need to change it over to the farm or ag-business name prior to sending us the application. If you need a consult before taking this initial step, please call Jenni at 360-357-9975.
Does this program affect my existing contract or timeline with Verizon?
You will still have control of your Verizon account like before, but you will be required to switch your account from a personal account to a business account. This may require a bit of paperwork on your part, but once you have completed the process, you won’t have to do it again. When talking to your Verizon contact, please ask them about the pros and cons of a business account before proceeding.
What does the discount apply to?
The 20% discount will apply to components of a plan that are over $34.99. For example, if FB member John Doe has a primary line for $50/month, his wife has a data plan for $39, and he has added a line for his child for $10, the discount would apply to the husband and wife, but not the child’s $10 add on. All members under a Farm Bureau/Verizon program qualify for a 25% discount on most Verizon accessories.
Does the Farm or Ag Business need to sign up before their employees?
Yes. The Verizon agent will need to first speak to the head or authorized individual of the Farm or Ag Business to set the discount in place, then the Verizon agent can assist with helping Farm or Ag Businesses access the discount for their employees.
