Was just reading the thread on business discounts, and wondered if Sprint might have a discount for disabled people? Would really help out a close friend of mine.

I don't think so to say that they do, in terms of people calling in and saying that they are blind, deaf, etc. BUT, maybe there is something with the government. I don't know, kind of throwing out ideas. There would be a lot of blind people here on the boards if they did that, so I think they would need to have some sort of proof, if they even do anything like that.

Does he get any services thru an agency, such as physical therapy? Some agencies get the discounts for clients as if they are employees, such as the credit union member discount. wouldnt hold my breath on it though!


10% for being a credit union member though it seems and most places require you deposit $5 to become a member. $5 one time for 10% off each month might be something to look into.
