    Yeah, pretty sure I get a 20% ish or so for working for the government, which is why I'm actually considering this.

    I figure I can't live off my $16.99 employee plan + 20 data plan that I've had since I was 16 working at Staples forever

    Same here. I average about 30 talk minutes a month. And that's on a talkative month! lol.

    I'm still going to try & stack the discounts. =P

    A credit union works like a bank, but is "community owned" and not for profit. They are separate things though, so if your organization says "bank" or at least doesn't explicitly say "credit union", it's probably not one. A quick Google shows National City is not. If you want to be sure, find the place on the web site where it says your account is insured. If it's insured by the FDIC, it's a bank. If it's insured by the NCUA, it's a credit union.

    I actually am a member of a credit union so the 10% discount is a nice find. I'm not about to lie to try to get a bigger discount though. Honesty people.

    You can stack a 10% loyalty discount on top of an employee discount, but there is only room for one employee discount on an account.

    I'm a credit union member too but 10 % off the cheapest ED plan is $63.
    Since I'm on SERO, I can get the ERP for $60 and get 50 more monthly minutes. Of course we all know you can't get discounts on the ERP, so unless you can get 25 % off the ED to get it down to $53, it may make sense to get the $60 ERP for the extra 50 minutes.

    Also if you're a student, you can check your university to see if they offer a discount. You don't have to be employed by the school, just being a student normally qualifies you for a discount. Mine, NJIT, offers 15%.

    Can someone clarify? How does one go about getting that discount?
    Aren't those just the basic plans that Sprint offers, not necessarily "pre-specific?" The image of the chart is embedded inside a table that has "Palm Pre Data Plans" in a "caption" that's not part of the image (which is presumably a scan from some kind of Sprint document?)

    I'm still waiting for something "official" from Sprint that outlines which plans will be available with the Pre. Methinks the blogger is just trying to generate traffic on his/her blog.

    As for the discounts, Sprint has offered them for several years for employees/members of different companies/organizations they do business with (or otherwise have discount agreements with - I think employees of the company I work for get a 18% discount).

    How can you see if your school qualifies?

    Click on this link...

    NationLink Wireless / Home

    1. Where the drop down box in the upper right says "login", choose "VIP Member."
    2. Press "GO"
    3. In the field that says "login" put in a company name and hit the "GO" button.
    4. If it finds a company, click on "I have an existing account" and there you will see how much the discount is for.

    If it doesn't find the company it will take you to a form that you put in your company email address and it will try to find it that way.

    I work for a company that allows for employees to get a 25% personal discount at Sprint. For the 1st time I was considering a Simply Everything Plan ($99) & dumping my land line.

    However, as I look at this chart, it says N/A for all the discounts in this plan. Does anyone know if that means no discount is offered w/the Simply Everything Plans?

    Cheers

    Correct. The $99 simply everything plan can't be used with the employee discount. The 450 and 900 everything data plans can be used, though.

    You will need to use a school-based email address I believe.

    I thought that was pretty much implied when I said school email address and the @yourcompany.com part of the example at the link.

    Sorry. Missed that. I just kind of glanced over the post without really paying attention.

    Thanks. Too bad, though, as Sprint just lost some revenue from me. I rarely exceed 450 minutes anyway (my current limit), but didn't want to have to worry about it. Now I will keep the lower, discounted plan, vs paying more--w/similar usage for the Simply Everything plan.

    Cheers

    It doesn't cost anything to join Alliant Credit Union except a $5 deposit. You can then get 25% off Sprint plans and have your morality intact

    I called customer service and gave them a code for an employer on the business partner list. The representative asked for my email address to complete the form (I gave her my Yahoo email address) and she told me that she will put the request in for processing, and if approved, I should see the discount on my bill within 3 billing cylces.

    We'll see.

    UPDATE:

    Congratulations! This email confirms that the discount of 27% has been
    successfully added on your account against the monthly recurring
    charges.

    It will take up to 1 - 2 billing cycle for the discount to appear on
    your invoice. You can view this discount on your invoice under the
    heading "Service Discounts/ Charges" with the description "Employee
    Discount Sprint/Nextel."

    Thank you for choosing Sprint!

    Sincerely,
    Baker S
