Cell Phone Discounts: Updated List of Secret Savings

Cell Phone Discounts: Updated List of Secret Savings
R

Could you be missing out on a discount for your phone plan? Check out our list of employer discounts from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint.

If you follow Brad’s Deals, you're likely always on the lookout for a way to save on you monthly cell phone bill. Of course we have lots of deals on the hottest smartphones around, but your savings don't have to stop after you buy a new phone--you may be eligible for a service discount just for having a job! Many cell phone carriers have deals with certain companies, government agencies and universities that offer discounts to employees and students.

Of course, the phone companies like to keep this stuff quiet, so official lists of these carrier discounts are hard to find. We did our best to put together a comprehensive list of all employee discounts on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, but if you don't see your company or university listed below, enter your work or school email address at AT&T, Verizon or Sprint's discount pages to see if you qualify. T-Mobile does have an Advantage Program, but there is no official list of eligible companies. To check if your company provides a discount contact your Human Resources department.

If your current carrier does not offer discounts to your employer or your school, it might be worth the time to enter your email address 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.
