Talking Check your Employee Discount Percentage on the Sprint website!

Not sure if this is a repost, but all you have to do is type in your e-mail address and check your discount amount.
http://sprint.p.delivery.net/m/p/nxt...WhereDoYouWork

What is the highest Corp discount you can have? I have 23%.
Also - say i have changed from ABC corp, which was giving 20% corp discount to XYZ Inc. which is giving 10% corp discount and I am still on ABC Corp.'s discount - is there any way for sprint to tell or is it illegal or anything? Am i still following the rules?

"Thank you. We were unable to determine whether you are eligible for an employee discount on your wireless service.

Is what it says for me based on my City of New York e-mail address.

Based on what I've read, you technically do need to change - but most reps won't bother doing it as it's a bit of a PITA.

no, the discounts now go higher than 28%. I've seen 32% on some newer contracts we've signed w/ companies (very very very large companies).

I work for the University of Oregon. We definitely used to get a 15% discount years ago. In modern time, and since I became a Sprint customer I cannot find anyone who knows our discount code (or whatever they call it). It's also unclear if I could combine a discount with the SERO plan I'm on. Anyway, yes I'd try it if I could. In any event, the site you mention doesn't know about my employer.

At this point Sprint is the *only* national provider that doesn't give a discount either specifically to my university or the state of oregon (of which it is apart).

SERO plans technically dont qualify for a discount. State employees generally get a "state / federal employee" discount of 15% Some states or state universities get seperate discounts which may be lower or higher.....


edit........... I punched in my wife's email address at work and for whatever reason the site directed me to the page for my cable company and their plans........... seems odd!

24% With Regal Entertainment Group, this is with a SERO plan, I might add. So it does work. And you don't necessarily need an email address from your work in order to get the discount. I did not need one, maybe it's only necessary to check and see as the OP stated.

I know Citi Group gets 27% and that has to be fairly high since every time I call in almost without fail the reps make comment about it being a good discount. I wonder what company is pulling a 30+% disc. down?

Yes, I'm not displeased with the price I pay-- in fact it's the main reason I'm a Sprint customer.

It would be nice to know the discount code so I could advise other friends who could qualify. I don't believe either the UO or the state of oregon has a discount currently.

Verizon seems to be the provider that all of the state agencies here prefer (and they have a good discount).
