    What's happening with the corporate discounts??
    I have a 20% discount on my main line and a
    20% discount on my data plan... Am I getting
    screwed here? I signed my contract factoring
    the discounts into my bill. Without the discounts
    I wouldn't have signed up.

    BUSINESS DISCOUNTS- Currently our business
    discounts apply to the $29.99 data plan on the
    primary line only. Most discounts are 20%
    despite whatever monthly access discount they
    have
    BUSINESS DISCOUNTS- After 7/7/2011 data
    discounts will only apply to the $50 and higher
    data packages on the primary line.
    Discount break down ex. of customers with a
    20% feature discount on their primary line.
    ($50-20%=$40/month for 5GB and includes
    the business e-mail feature)

    If we are currently enjoying the corporate discounts, will they stay as is and change with a new contract, or will we lose our discounts on the 29.99 plan effective next month?

    Wow this I did NOT know. I hope Verizon has the courtesy to tell me this if it is the case that we won't have our corp discounts grandfathered in.

    With the economy the way it is, it's amazing all these carriers are sticking it to the customers. Something will have to give eventually, less customers = less revenue. Then they will throw some kick @ss deal. Way it goes.

    We have a small business plan with 14 phones/devices and we only get 8% off, maybe we are getting screwed.

    You should find out if your eligible for a GPO (Group Purchasing Organization). I belong to National Purchasing Partners https://www.mynpp.com/myNPP/home.xhtml and get a significant discount on my business account, there are other GPO's but I can't remember them now.

    Otherwise your stuck with 8% if you have less than 100 lines.

    What he said.

    I switched a company I used to run over to Verizon a few years ago and we got the bigger discount by being a member of a construction industry buying group that we joined for this purpose. Just ask your verizon rep what you need to do. At the time, a Verizon rep sent me detailed instructions on how to do it.

    Corp discounts are NOT going away for people on $29.99 unlimited data plans. And to get the data discount as of 7/7/11 you have to be on a $45 or greater plan (being the $30 for 2GB's plus the $15 corp email) So everyone needs to stop worrying.

    Good. I really enjoy the 14% discount I get from my work. Every little bit helps!
