Cell Phone Discounts: Updated List of Secret Savings

After the great response we've gotten in the comments from all of you, we've updated our lists and made them a little more user-friendly. Thanks again to everyone for all the helpful tips. A lot of you also asked about senior discounts and we recently put together a list of retailers and businesses with discounts specifically for seniors.

Employee wireless discounts can save you money on your bill.

Are you eligible for an employee discount on your cell phone bill?

Chances are, if you follow Brad’s Deals, you have probably looked for a great deal on the last cell phone you purchased. If you're looking for a new phone, we keep track of cell phone deals, too! And remember, you don't have to buy your phone directly from your carrier. Stores like Target and Best Buy sell cell phones too and you can save more using store coupons on cell phone purchases. It is always such a great feeling to know that some people paid more than you did just because you were willing to put a little time and research into your purchase. We are excited to tell you that the savings don’t have to stop after the phone purchase.

You may have thought to yourself, “It would be great if I could get a discount on my at-home bills.” Great news! Some cell phone carriers do just that for employees at certain corporations and even some students! Select companies have negotiated employee discounts with select carriers that give you a monthly discount on your bill.

Because cell phone companies prefer to keep this information private (and some employers remain tight lipped), carriers’ lists can be hard to find. To see if you qualify, simply enter your e-mail address at Cingular/AT&T, U.S. Cellular and T-Mobile. You can also try entering your e-mail at Verizon or Sprint if you don’t see your employer or university listed below.

If your current carrier does not offer discounts to your employer or your school, it might be worth the time to enter your e-mail at competing carriers to see if you can get a discount. It is always a great idea to take advantage of every perk and discount available to you, even if it requires a little extra research and effort.

Please note that these discounts are accurate to the best of our knowledge, but they may vary.

    Anything for kmart/Sears holding for Verizon ?

  2. Julie says:

    Does the “VZ” listed for Sprint discounts stand for Verizon?? Interesting if it does…

  3. Scott Gaffney says:

    I work for the State of Ohio and receive a 15% monthly service discount through AT&T. Didn’t see it listed.

  4. Wilma says:

    I have worked for J&J for 37 years and Verizon has honored my discount on my phone bill until now. I am a good customer of Verizon always paid my bill on time or before time and have got at least 10 or more of my family members and friends to switch to Verizon. I have received good service from Verizon and would like to stay with them but, I have been received the discount for almost seven years with Verizon and they will not extend it due to the fact that J&J doesn’t honor retiree discounts. I am on J&J retiree pension plan, life and health Insurance. I would greatly appreciate it if J&J and Verizon could extend the discount out to the retirees. Retiree live on a fixed income and I feel like Verizon should extend it to the retirees especially if you are already receiving the discount. I understand if you are longer involved with the company but, we retirees are until the day we pass away.

    • Lost Loyal Customer says:

      Same boat; different name. Had Verizon’s HP discount for ~15 years, retired now, but no favor for retirees. Nothing for military service either. Maybe time to change plans – CERTAINLY need to look at the competitors more closely. Lost Loyal Customer

      • At&t lost customer says:

        We have a family of 6 and 4 are on our family plan. The other two will soon be added since they will be going to separate schools. Right now we pay around 320 a month and needed to bump it down. We’ve been with at&t for nearly 20years now with the FedEx discount but still needed to drop the price. We were looking at straight talk who has unlimited nationwide everything for $45 and supports gsm phones (tmoble & at&tt) and cdma (Verizon and sprint) they have coverage just like at&t and now recently support 4g lte from at&t. the only bad thing about it is1) since they don’t do contracts their phones are full price so our fam will be on eBay looking for phones and 2) most phones their phone are outdated. (So says my 13 year old technological genius)

        • Michelle says:

          we have a family of four on metro pcs for $25.00 per phone unlimeted text and dial…we had to buy the phone but ours were under $50 a piece nothing fancy, but with texting pads and we do get internet, but it is not great.

      • Rob C says:

        VZW currently offers 15% discount for vets in No Virginia. All you need to bring to them is your DD214.

        • Bill Taylor says:

          One would have to think to what degree VZW is asking to look at the information contained in the DD214, It is very personal information contained in the DD214 I am also a War Veteran and VZW and some of my information in my DD214 I don’t want VZW to view and/ or see.

          So each to his own, but to me any veteran worth his salt will not just hand over his DD214 together a 15% discount for them to see your DD214, I don’t want VZW to view the content of this document . I am not going sell my information for a fee dollars of silver! Plus these people don’t have a top secret clearance to be viewing my information , it see’s to me my military ID card should serve this purplish, it’s good enought for the US government it should be good enought for VZW.

      • Raj Patel says:

        Verizon DOES offer discounts for Veteran’s. Bring your discharge papers to the COMPANY stores only.

    • Chris says:

      Wilma, if you’re actually receiving a pension that also has life and health insurance you’re doing a lot better than most people. I have no idea what you have to pay out of pocket of course but just on the information given the 15-20% discount on your cell phone doesn’t seem like such a big deal when you have a retirement that no one that is still working now will ever see.

      • Eric says:

        That is the most idiotic lack of reasoning I have ever heard. Please think before you speak.

      • Chris says:

        I have worked a long time for me pension plus, I paid in for my pension and I also pay for my health and life insurance. I hope you know I also have to pay for medicare insurance. I feel like you don’t know what you are talking about and when you grown up you will see what I am talking about. Their is nothing about getting old. I look for coupons and senior discounts. One day I hope these words flash in front of your face. If you don’t look for ways to save money you better get started.

      • T Monroe says:

        No one prevented you from joining the military my friend. I hope you enjoy your freedoms, cause that’s what those folks do for you.

  5. Claire says:

    I am also a retiree losing my discount with Verizon. Worked for Rorer/Rhone Poulenc Rorer/Aventis/Sanofi Aventis. Always with Verizon.

  6. Darrell says:

    does sprint give discounts to ford retirees

  7. Andrew says:

    If you loose your discount, where might you look to get a discount when your self employed?

  8. Silverback says:

    Verizon sucks! Been with them forever and being a recent retiree no long eligible for the discount. Worst was the hoops I had to go thru to get a straight answer. Gone when my contract is up.

  9. ingkie says:

    How about Mary Kay do they get discount to any phone services and also do you recommend getting an insurance for the cell phone? I heard there is a deductible before you can really claim.

  10. cellphonerick says:

    Same boat with Verizon and have been a customer since 1985. I was turned down when I submitted a pay stub and they won’t accept a letter on company letter head saying I am on the payroll for the rest of my life.

    The good news is I work for an employer that gets 15%. Part of my job is to manage our company cellphones and air cards. Over all we have more than 600 lines of service and the deals we get make the discounts you and I get look tiny. Unlimited Data for $36 Smartphones $35 with unlimited data. I am going to pursue a different approach. I signed all of my contracts with the discount in effect . The discounts were part of the agreement so if they pull the discount then they terminate the contract. I think on an individual basis they may want to just continue the discount but what may get their attention is a large action against them.

    • Matt says:

      cellphonerick:

      Do you have any information about how these employer-carrier deals work? I recently found out that I qualify for an 18% discount because of where I work. I’m wondering if I’m entitled to credit for back payments. I asked Verizon, they of course said no, but I want to figure out how these contracts work — what the actual terms are between verizon and the employer, to see if that’s true or not. Do these contracts tend to be private? How would I go about obtaining a copy to read? I tried calling my employer but wasn’t sure who to even talk to that would have any idea.

      Matt

  11. Jamie says:

    The Alstom number is not correct. I entered my address on their site and it said this:

    Based on your email address, you could save on Verizon Wireless products and services through the ALSTOM GRID EMP employee program, which offers the following discounts:
    • Your monthly access discount has two parts:

    Access Discount 7%
    Bonus Access Discount 3%
    ________________________________________
    Total maximum discount up to 10%

    You will receive the access discount simply by registering your eligible lines* with Verizon Wireless, but to qualify for the bonus discount, you must be registered in My Verizon and sign up for Paperless Billing.

    Note: Discount applies to all eligible lines* on your account.

    Visit My Verizon to review your billing and payment options.

    * To be eligible for a discount, a wireless number must be on a Plan $34.99 or higher (data packages $24.99 or higher, other than the 2 GB data package, are also eligible for discounts when added to Plans $34.99 or higher). Some lines, such as lines on Unlimited Anytime Minute Plans and Family Share Plan secondary lines, are not eligible for discounts.

  12. Karen says:

    Same thing with me…retired Aetna employee. Discount no longer allowed. Once the contract is over, I’m gone….

  13. CoolStuffOnSale says:

    Same here. Verizon was still giving me my Circuit City discount, and they went out of business in 2009. Prices for cell phone plans are too high for what I use. Time to find another option.

  14. Sue says:

    Too bad AAA or AARP don’t offer discount plans to seniors. I guess I have to check retailers like Staples and Sam’s to see if they offer discounted VZN plans. Verizon the only carrier that works in rural NH.

  15. jordan says:

    I work For Nike and i get a 17% discount at at&t and i think a 19% discount at verizon, but the verizon discount is just for the voice part of the plan, whereas the AT&T discount is off my entire bill

  16. Chance Alvarado says:

    What about Metro State University, Red Rocks Community College, US Bank, Firstbank,or Discount Tire co.? For sprint i mean

  17. Mike says:

    Does Sprint has discount for Key bank employee?

  18. Tammy says:

    I’ve been a customer of Verizon for 10 years, have 3 phone lines, for me my son and daughter, and pay a few dollars short of 200 per month. Because of Leukemia and a bone marrow transplant, I now am on disability retirement from the State of CT. I’ve just been informed I will no longer receive the discount although I get a monthly pay stub from my employer. When the contracts are up on these lines, I’m gone. Straight talk is a better deal anyway!

  19. Jennifer says:

    It’s a shame to see military offered such a low discount…. and it looks as if attending certain Universities, you get more than a military one…

  20. Paula says:

    Retired in Dec 2013 from long-time U.S. Gov’t service and am also losing my discount. If anyone needs discounts for exhorbitant wireless costs, it’s retirees on fixed incomes with skyrocketing medical costs. Verizon, please reconsider your discount policies for retirees! AARP, we need your help, too!

  21. Nanci says:

    I’m in the same boat with other retirees. Just lost my discount with Verizon. Damn them! Getting the run around with the reason why they don’t extend it to retirees.

  22. Jon says:

    Count me in as a long time customer of Verizon that recently retired and will lose my discount. I’ll be looking elsewhere. I hope this move by Verizon backfires on them and they lose a lot of customers and money. If I change carriers, I will not come back to Verizon. Any suggestions on other carriers would be appreciated.

  23. Jim says:

    I hope it backfires on Verizon too. Just as I send a lot of business their way over the years because I was satisfied I’m now a dissatisfied customer and word spreads fast.

  24. Linda says:

    Just got my letter also. Been with verizon for 30 years. Seems like they are very greedy, reneging on their puny discount for retireees. My husband has already cancelled his verizon account and I will too just as soon as my contract is up.

  25. Unemployed says:

    My mom and I have shared a Verizon plan for the last two years. She was getting a 20% discount through Macy’s, but she has since retired. I am currently unemployed, and in Ohio, so my efforts to secure employment are grim. Verizon is revoking her discount, and we don’t know what to do. We can’t afford the 20% increase. Any recommendations for the most affordable two-person shared plan?

    Long time verizon customers. Got the letter yesterday confirming we have lost our verizon discount because wife is now retired from 35 years of teaching. Contacted verizon consumer relations to register disappointment that verizon doesn’t care about customer loyalty and people in retirement. Verizon reply was to lower our minutes to reduce monthly rate. Will continue attempts to get Verizon give consideration to honoring retirement discounts. If nothing changes will probably go to Straight Talk when verizon contract is up.

      Just had the same experience – No discount for NYSUT members – ATT offers a 25% discount to NYSUT members – No discount for AARP members – I am a member of a car club that has a 16% discount – not as good as the 19% we got – but better in my pocket than in theirs.

      Just stupid!

  27. Penny says:

    My discount just went from 19% to 15% – not sure why since I haven’t changed employers. Anyway, we pay about $250 a month for 4 lines.

    I think revoking all these folks discounts may have a positive affect overall. People will search for new plans and that will give a boost to some of the smaller companies who will then be able to share in more of the lines. Competition is good! There are so many possible plans out there.

    Good luck to everyone. We’re stuck on our contract for at least another year.

    Verizon revoked my discount. I’ve been with them for over a decade… how dare they. They are so expensive hahhaahah WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?!? time to invest in Sprint and AT&T, their stock price is about to soar as Verizon starts losing their customer base. First it was the Unlimited Data, now this…? Eff that, I am OUT!

  29. Zoey says:

    I worked at Progressive and received a 20% off my voice plan and 15% off my data plan. From Verizon and AT&T. This listing in rather inaccurate.

  30. cmthom says:

    I was told by a carrier that the reason why people lose their discounts is because the employee no longer pays for the employees discounted portion after they leave the company. Cell carriers are not the ones that pay for the discount, it is the employer or organization that does.

    • LinkC says:

      I really doubt that the Federal Government has been paying Verizon to give me a discount.

      But I DO believe a carrier told you that…

  31. cmthom says:

    correction to above:. the employer no longer pays for the employees discounted portion

  35. Kevin Wallace says:

    You should realize when you are listing these discounts that for many of the corporations these discounts only apply to the “data” portion of the plan. While the discounts, example IBM for Verizon is 21% and Sprint is 25%, it is only meaningful if you have old plans that no longer exist. On the new plans both vendors have split out the “voice/text” portion of the plan from the “data” portion. The discounts stated ONLY applies to the data portion basically becoming something like a 4-5% discount. Hardly worth notice.

  36. Stephen Barry says:

    I taught for 34 yrs at Union Springs CSD in upstate NY. I received a 19% discount, though my school is not listed on your site. I have retired. How do I maintain my discount?

  37. Lou Rainer says:

    After having Verizon for about 15 years, I lost my discount months after retirement. This was done half way through my contract. How can they get away with this. They should be required to honor a contract the same way we are. I asked what it would cost me to drop all 3 lines after they broke the contract, they told me$250 for each line. If a contract is not binding for one party it should not be binding for the other party. We should contact our congress, senator, and/or council representatives for their help returning these discounts to retires. We deserve it, we worked for it, and are now living on a fixed income. Verizon is charging an enormous amount of money for their service. After our contract is up, we will definitely search elsewhere.

  38. Merilee says:

    A couple of people have said that the discount only applies to the data portion or the phone portion, however, as somebody else above stated, The discount for my company (small business, and not listed above) is 25%, and it’s off of my entire bill. My heart goes out to the retirees that have lost their discounts. Not only are the discounts much needed now as they’re on a fixed income, they have been loyal customers. If as someone had mentioned is true about the employer contributing to the discount in some way (which I find hard to believe), then the wireless company should step in and offer a loyalty discount, especially for some of these ppl who have been customers for 10+ years. Lord knows we’re paying exorbant amounts for cellular service – which has risen dramatically over the last 15 years.

  39. Cindy says:

    Is There any discounts for a Realtor?

  40. Jerry W says:

    Is there a way to view the agreement my company has with Verizon Wireless?

  41. LEN says:

    You didn’t hear it from me and I will deny if asked (lol) but…

    I STILL GET THE DISCOUNT FOR A COMPANY I LEFT MORE THAN 5 YRS AGO.
    I am even able to use the customer service number dedicated to my prev employer. I was very surprised when I discovered this.
    I don’t know why and I don’t know how long it will last, but I will enjoy it until then.
    ***so I suggest folks just go on like nothing has changed until the cell company says you’re no longer eligible.****

  42. Bill Ward says:

    Fill out a complaint with the FCC on their web site. The FCC contacts the carriers with the complaints filed. If the FCC receives enough complaints carriers will take notice.

  43. Dana says:

    If your a light data user (<500 MB/month) and 3G only doesn't bother you PagePlus has some very reasonable plans. Best part they use Verizon infrastructure so you won't loose any coverage. I was able to switch over my Verizon Droid X2 with no issues. Phone is ancient by today's standards but for the money I'm saving I'm willing to deal with it.

  44. Vira says:

    Every cell phone company is a JOKE. They have realized that they can legally scam the customer out of hundreds of dollars per year in so called discounts. We are fighting for a measly 10-17 % discount which comes out to $8-$12/ per month. This doesn’t even pay for the HIDDEN FEES or the phone insurance. Cell phone companies are in it for the BIG BUCKS and do NOT CARE about their customers. They are sinking us deeper in the hole just like the government. They figured it out too…why can’t we? Drop them… and get a beeper. I am sick of paying so much money for cell phone bills every month and it keeps rising and more hidden fees. JERKS! I HATE YOU VERIZON!!!
