    i currently have the 15% student discount and i've been reading on the forums that some people got the 27% discount by going into the store and talking to a rep. =/ currently my bill with discount still comes out to 80 a month after taxes and surcharge rate which i think is still to expensive, since when i was on my att line i had 3 people and a iphone with data and text for 102 after taxes and charges. I really want to stay with sprint and my evo, but i don't know if the extended cost over 2 years is worth it.

    I have a 25% discount for joining a credit union. Alliant in chicago. If you google you'll find a lot of threads on it.

    Fyi....i don't believe the $10 fee is included in discounts. There's a reason it's not bundled in to the plan cost.

    I have a 20% off plus a 20$ off every month. I have the 1500 family plan with 4 phones, unlimited data, and unlimited taxes. My bill after taxes is around $150 a month. :)

    I have 27% off through my job(Citi). However like one poster said, it does not apply to the $10 premium data add-on. Funny, you're the first person i've seen say they preferred AT&T over a Sprint plan.

    Yeah the sprint plan would be a super plus if my family used either the text or data, but they don't so i end up paying extra for stuff i don't use. i was paying for 550 minute + 1800 roll over minute + 2 additional line and iphone data and text. Came out to be 89.99 and 102 after tax and charges. Right now on Sprint by myself im paying roughly 80 for 1 line. or about 150 with 3 i think after discount and taxes and surcharges.

    got 20% for working with Blue Cross Blue Shield, and am getting 20% for working with CSC now. it is only off the actual plan cost, not the total cost, and not on any plan addons.

    They closed that loophole a while back. Now it's only 10% (as noted on all the other threads).

    Me too :) ... but I haven't seen it yet. When I picked up my EVO at SAMS (new to Sprint) on the 4th the rep put me in for that and he said it might take 1-2 billing cycles. I've had 1 bill so far but no confirmation email or discount. Does that sound like how it works?

    Rep put me on it (It's the whole reason I cancelled my Best Buy pre-order and got one from the Sprint store instead). Says it takes a couple of billing cycles, so I'll be looking for it soon.

    I get 25% thru work, but if I had AT&T I'd get 27%....a crappy phone and bad service.
