NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ:FTR) and Veterans Advantage today announced an annual savings program on qualifying new Frontier bundles for U.S. active duty, retirees, veterans, current and former guardsmen, reservists and their families enrolled with Veterans Advantage.
This savings program is newly created for Veterans Advantage members with a VetRewards Card, providing these special military savings when purchasing new Frontier Bundles for TV, Internet and/or home phone services.
Veterans Advantage members are eligible for the new Frontier Holiday Offer in FiOS and Vantage markets or an additional exclusive savings of $10 a month ($120 a year) for new triple-play bundles (Internet, TV and phone) or $5 a month ($60 a year) for new double-play bundles (Internet + TV or phone) in all other markets.
