Had a hard time tracking this down, and had it poted in a different thread, but thought it deserved it's own thread. I called and was expecting to get an 18% discount (i have been with Sprint for 8 years and didn't know that this list existed) and she ended up giving me a 24% discount!!!!!!!! so here it is:

Please update list when you know for sure...and share your experiences; Sprint will try and keep this a secret, because they don't want to shell out any more discounts then they have to...I suggest you get locked in in case they do away with it or your employer in the near future. (just a note there was no verification of employment, they just took my word for it and credited my acount with the discount!)

I didn't see the need to post a new thread for this, & I thought it would be nice to share the wealth.
Apparantly, if you are a member or belong to a Credit Union (any) I'm assuming, you automatically get a 10% discount off all Monthly Recurring Charges.
If anyone is interested, the special website is www.sprintsave4cu.com , & mention discount node 0130554791. You can also call 877-728-3428.
The # for existing subscribers is 888-788-4727.
This is directly off a glossy sheet I picked up at my local Sprint Store. YMMV. I hope this is of assistance. Good luck!!!
I'm not weird... I'm gifted!!!

But way to go on promoting the scamming of this great deal.

This list has been posted, and regularly update, on SprintUsers.com for a very long time, and Sprint hasn't cancelled the plans yet. Most of these are, I think, negotiated with the corporations involved, so Sprint probably can't cancel them without really pissing off their customers. I supposed they could start verifying more closely, but when I signed up for my discount (legitimate, btw), they never verifed it. I suspect they verify only a small percentage.
I'm out of my mind. But feel free to leave a message.

I believe any company that uses any mobile carrier can get a discount for their employees' personal phones with the same carrier. My company uses Sprint and Nextel (the merge is moot ) but is not on the list, yet I get a volume discount on all my personal accounts with Sprint.

I just called in and got 15% off. I'm contracted with the Plano School District and she said they would just list me as a state of Texas employee which is 15% off (of my $165)
All teachers call in and check!

I called about the Credit Union 10% - the rep said yes it is available, that I'd have to go into a Sprint Store or a Radio Shack and present proof of membership (eg my credit union ATM card). They would then switch my account to a Business Account and change the dates of my billing cycle, but that my plan would otherwise stay the same.
Oh - they also offered me unlimited minutes (yes, minutes) for $200...not something I was interested in but others might benefit.
Thanks for the tip!
