honda dealers (auto, power equipment, motorcycle, marine, etc) are 18% not 15% ....just pulled that info off of the honda dealer site. Also have a question regarding the discounts when purchasing a phone from somewhere other than the sprint store. I'm contemplating switching over to sprint because of the discounts, but I don't want to have to pay $199 (after rebates) for an Evo 4g which is the online price via the honda dealership website. Can I buy a the phone and/or sign up via Amazon or other retailer and still get the corporate discount ?

Yes, You can. Once you get your phone and account set up (from anywhere... Best Buy, Amazon, etc), Just give Sprint a call and they can apply your corporate discount for you.

Edit: I belive you can apply the discount online through your Sprint account, too. You'll need proof of employment. Company E-mail usually works.

awesome...I've been trying to decide what to do as my US cellular contract has been up and I have 3 options at this point and need to make a decision soon. I'm also partial to HTC for my next phone purchase.

Option1: Stay with us cellular and switch to a new plan with data buying an HTC Desire.

Option2: Add a line to my parents verizon family plan, port my number and pay the difference in the bill with buying an HTC Droid Incredible. (with the issue that the due date will be at a bad time of month and i have to decide in the next few days or they won't go along with it)

Option3: Switch to Sprint and use the 18% corporate discount and leaning towards an Evo for this option.

T-Mobile is too pricey for the packages I'm looking at, and I have a smaller discount on AT&T, but due to an unresolved issue going back to the Cingular days that is not an option.

Tough calls there; you have good options, at least. I can say this, Sprint has been pretty damn good to me over the many years I have been with them. I travel extensivly for work and coverage has been great. The prices and plans are probably the best around. With your discount they will be even better. The EVO is a sweet phone.

Also: If you hurry, you can take advantage of Sprint's current promotion. If you port your number from another carrier, you are eligable for a 125 dollar credit on your bill that will show after 61 days of service. That will be over 2 months of FREE service for you. To get this, you must port your number and apply within 72 hours of porting. Its a HUGE incentive.

A few things.....

Sprint now checks for discounts to make sure theyre valid (you must show proof of employment or affiliation)

Credit Union members, AAA Members and AOL Members all get 10% off and waived activation fees.


There are also a number of discounts to get waived activation fees

Default Sprint Discount Number

I got my company discount also. We received some info at work and the number for us to call was 866-444-3131. I didnt have to pay any activation fees, mailed my phones to me, and they gave me free accessories for each phone. Everything was smooth and easy.

1-You can go the the Sprint Employer Discount page and enter your work email to see if you do.

2-You can also go to the Sprint Employee Value Program (EVP) page to enter your work email.

3-You can call Sprint at (888) 457-6294, answer a few questions or provide them with your work info.

4-You can browse through the Sprint Employer Discount lists below and go through one of the above links.
A-M


N-Z

Note: Each list is compiled in Google Docs and has numerous tabs.

Disclaimer #1:
Sprint usually checks to see if you indeed work for the company that you are requesting the discount for. Sometimes its worth looking at the lists because you may have other options rather than applying just with your company's' discount. For example:
You work at company X, which is a hospital. Company X gives you 10%, but since you work in the healthcare field, that gives you 17%. But you also are a NY city worker, that gives you 25%. So choose, but choose wisely.

Disclaimer #2:
The Employer Discount lists have been compiled from numerous sources. They may or may not be accurate or up to date. If you encounter or have a company that is not in the list, feel free to contact me so I can add it.

Not sure if this was covered or not, but you do have to renew your contract for the discount to take effect. I just called and applied the aol discount. It will take a month or two to take effect, and I have to renew my contract, he said. But this does not affect your upgrade. You are still eligible for your upgrade at the same date as you were before.

Well...this is the email I got after hanging up with their rep:



I have reviewed your request to participate in the Sprint discount
program through AOL Sprint Affinity Agreement. I am unable to process
your request because your account is currently set up as a business
account, and only individual accounts are eligible.

If you would like to have your account changed, please visit any Sprint
store or contact Customer Care by calling the number on your bill or *2
from your Sprint phone.

The employer discount should NOT require a contract renewal. They can apply it at any time to an existing account under contract.

The AOL discount was the first NVP discount they required a 2year contract renewal with. They all now require two year contracts.....

There are alot of people who are trying to buy the evo3d and only qualify for the silver upgrade $75 bucks.....for the those people if you lost your upgrade because of the change in premier guidelines and would have qualified on 6/4/11 with the old terms...you need to call sprint and ask for an upgrade override...

Back to the topic...I hope Sprint just announces this thing. I have preordered already but I need to schedule a day off to play with it...lol just like a nerd

We would've gotten 15% if we had used our Law Enforcement discount. We used a corporate one and got better.

Yes,I read it thoroughly. I ended up w/the 15% discount & grateful for it.Was just asking in case someone knew of a better discount that might be applicable.
CRICKET has a pay for 3 month's service & get the 4th free (25%) that is available to all accounts & customers.I took advantage of it the moment I became aware that it existed.

It never hurts to ask,as CRICKET does not actively promote or advertise this 25% discount,but,it does exist,& was hoping SPRINT had a similar program to offer.

Cool

I was told in order to get a new to you discount, you had to commit to a new 2 year contract. Consider where you are on your current contract before going for it. MOST Sprint reps have been good about letting me know when I inquired. (not all)

Only certain types of AOL accounts qualify. Most do.

Yes they do on an irregular schedule.

Many credit unions are part of a national credit union affiliation.
See Credit Union & Sprint

10% discount for Sprint personal account
15% discount for Sprint business account

I may have missed it, but US Postal workers get 25% discount on the monthly bill. There were some other discounts but I'm not sure if the other discounts still apply. I'm not sure if that is thru the union or the postal service.

AAA's discount program includes an activation fee waiver. I know I can't get the recurring 10% AAA discount on an EPRP (new SERO) plan. But can I at least get the activation fee waiver?

I am looking to sign up for an individual account for myself only. My wife's employer discount is larger than mine - does anyone know if I am able to use her discount for my service?

She's currently grandfathered into an old plan on her parents' account, so no one is using her email address for employee discount.

FYI - I'll answer my own question.

I was able to use my wife's email to sign up. no issues.

Only whenever someone posts in this thread of a new discount or change in an existing discount. I will get the notification via email and change the Google doc spreadsheet accordingly.

I think so... Pin off the check, or something... It's been a while.

I'm no expert on this subject,but,your best bet is probably using any organization memberships that you may have, such as AAA,credit union,or an AOL e-mail account,etc......

I just finished re-reading this entire thread.If you check out each post, especially those w/links to other sources,there is quite a bit of information about discounts that may be helpful to those that are self-employed.

Some were successful using a spouse/relative's e-mail to qualify for a discount.

The AAA discount would pretty much pay for the membership itself if you cannot find anything that would apply to your situation.

Although not necessary,(just my opinion as a result of personal experience),I'd visit your local SPRINT store to get whichever discount you choose to apply for activation.

If your employer isn't blessed with a discount you should look into the credit union or other organization member's discounts.

Unfortunately this type of discount is a paultry 10%. I think it's disgusting that employees of certain companies get 25% or 2.5 times the discount I get simply for being employed at certain companies.

But alas, life is unfair, and so is Sprint.

Thanks for the update Ben. I updated the spreadsheet with that entry.

That's funny. Someone from my hospital must have posted here saying how much of a % we get. I don't think I've ever mentioned it before.
