Discussion in 'Sprint' started by twospirits, May 19, 2010.
I've got the Home Depot discount on my Sprint account... 25% off.
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.
HD Supply used to be owned by home depot but was sold and now is a separate company owned by a group of investors.
Thanks, I changed it on the list.
Thanks for clarifying that, its been added to the list.
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
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.

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.
This wasn't an employer discount.
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
can anyone confirm the law enforcement discount list says %25..when i call they keep asking me for a code from my employer saying the highest they have is %15, right now i have the state employee discount of %15. An extra ten percent helps.
Has anyone tried this lately? Sprint | Employer Discounts: Submit Email More or less I'm wondering if/what they confirm? I want to try for a Raytheon discount.
We would've gotten 15% if we had used our Law Enforcement discount. We used a corporate one and got better.
I know this is a bit off topic,but,did not want to start another thread.
I'm switching service from CRICKET to SPRINT(MOTOROLA PHOTON 4G,$99.99),& getting my phone & new service via BEST BUY,in store.[Just missed out on wirefly.com $89.00 w/free activation by one day ]
Does anyone have a discount/coupon code for free activation. I know it's only $36,but,every little bit helps.THX!
AAA members get free activation (at least I did).
I have found a 15% discount on the monthly bill as a State of Texas employee.Any one have a better discount as such?
Did you see the list in the first post?
Should be able to find some good ones in there
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.
