Question Sprint Discounts - Thinking of coming to Sprint

A few questions on discounts.

Sprint does give a credit union member discount right?

What about retired military discount?

And senior citizen discount?

Are they stackable?

How do I apply for them - when I sign up?

Some credit union members have gotten a discount from Sprint in the past. This may have changed since then.

As far as the rest, I don't think that you can get discounts for being a senior citizen or retired military member.

In some cases, business discounts and loyalty discounts may be stackable. For the loyalty discount you need to sign up with Sprint and finish a contract in good standing (on-time payments, etc) to really have a good chance of getting the discount. The loyalty discount is an additional discount offered to some customers after contract expiration to keep them from switching to another provider. In most cases, the loyalty discount will be given in return for another contract commitment.

I'm sure you probably could get the 15% military discount. Just tell them you're "military..." That's all they have to know. After all, you served your time, you deserve the discount!

if memory serves me correctly, the only military division that offers a discount for retirees is the air force. remember that your employment is verified before the discount is applied. if your one of the lucky ones who gets a discount before the employment is verified, if the company/entity comes back and says you are not an employee, the discount is removed.

Great! - my husband was apart of the airforce he'll love to hear this - now does the discount get applied to the primary line/plan, or just his line. Does he have to be the primary line to get the discount.
