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 work for one of those companies and the list is spot on with the discount percentage. However, no one here even knew the discount existed until just this past week and that list says it was good since 2004...

Great list! Thank you.

Wonder if I called now. Got my treo a week ago. Be nice to even save 5 bucks a month on vision. That sure adds up.

They will eventually verify your employment. They did for me.

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!!!

Yeah, ur mileage may vary -- some they verify some they dont.... Figured I'd mention it so 8000 people from this board dont call up and ask for a discount, then they drop the deal, and we all pay full price again.

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.

They do. That's the discount that I'm on...you are entitled to 23 to 25% (depending on what governmental educational institution) all they do is ask for a phone number of your work and your supervisor and then change you to that particular billing schedule; so call now, operators are standing by...

My wife worked for Sear 4 years ago when we signed up for sprint, she got the discount and they verified her employement. Then a month later she quit but has still been getting the discount.

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)

thanks again!!!!

All teachers call in and check!

Library of Congress (government) gave me a 15% discount. Had to give them my supervisor's name and number. Had my phone since February and called them earlier this month.

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!

California government educational institutions go through "State of California" and get 15% off. Thanks for letting me know!
