    Okay so I called sprint today and talked to a rep.
    And here's what i found out:
    -Discounts can not be activated at a Radio Shack/ best buy.

    -If your credit union is not on their list you can call your credit union and get their corporate id and they will add the discount for you

    -Some credit unions offer 10% or 15% discounts, its up to the employer at the credit union

    -Discounts take two bill cycles to be activated :( (guess i'll be stuck with that $90.22 for two months)

    -Student discounts are 15% with a $50 credit and you can call in to sprint (or go to sprint) and get that applied to your bill, you just need to give them your student email address to your university

    -Hospital employee discounts only work with hospitals that have a "deal" with sprint and that discount varies on the hospital (but mostly it is a 23% discount!)

    So basically the discounts arent as simple as i thought, it would probably be more worth it to go into the store and bargain with them. (I've heard of 27% discounts by talking to reps at a sprint store, but that is a rumor).

    So I will be getting my Evo tomorrow at RS and promptly going to the sprint store afterwards to work out a good discount for my plan.

    If anyone finds out any more info, post it to this thread. Thanks :D

    Do you (or anyone else) happen to know if they offer law enforcement discounts?

    Yes, but you have to show them your service revolver. And, oh yea... look angry.

    Sorry - couldn't resist. ;)

    Discounts "may" take up to one to two billing cycles. Mine went in place in a few days.

    Go search over at slickdeals in the hot deals forum. There is a 25% discount that anyone can get. Not sure if passing this info along is against forum rules.

    I got the discount to apply to my account. Be warned though it will renew your contract.

    just got the AAA one for 11%. Was asking for supervisor name and stuff, and kept saying employee discount, even for the credit union one. Chose AAA for the 1% more, and just said i don't have a supervisor, i am a member and gave my local branch and member id and he added it to the account. Had to renew contract for 2 years, but not a big deal since i just got the evo anyway. Basically amounts to free phone insurance which is nice.
