Default Wireless Discounts

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone currently receive a wireless discount from any of the wireless companies? At my last workplace they offered all employees a 15% discount off your monthly wireless bill, and they had reps from Sprint, Cingular,& T-mobile offering the same deal.... I never took advantage of it because I thought it was a scam to get you into a new service contract...

I will like to know if anyone currently receives a student or corporate discount...if so do you see any savings at the end of the month? or do such discounts even exist?

Thanks,

I work for Darden Restaurants and I receive 10% off of my monthly bill with Cingular. I also receive 40% off any equipment. It is definitely worth it.

I work for a large Insurance company and we have discount codes for Verizon (25% off service), Sprint (20% off service) and Cingular (20% service, 30% off hardware). I just activated my new Pearl on Cingular and the 30% hardware discount is a joke since that is in Lieu of any rebates or discounts. I was much better off getting the Pearl for $100 after the instant and mail-in rebate. The 20% service discount is nice though. Sorry, it won't do any good to give you my codes since they verify by employee ID.

My mom works for a rehab company and they get 10% off of the monthly bill (Cingular). What makes it even better is that when you have a que you get transfered to the Corporate CS. There is less wait time and the CS reps are more educated.

Funny, Cingular actually made me walk out to my car and retrieve a business card to prove my identity. If someone wants to give it a try, PM me and I'll give out the magic #.

When my mom asked for the corporate discount, she had to send in a paystub that showed that she was an employee of the company she works for. SHe had to fax a copy of it to the billing department of Cingular. Idk how you got around that, but i dont think that it will work everytime.
