If you are currently spending $100 a month on your rate on the cellular telephone cutting your bill down to $75 a month for the same service sounds appealing, right?
While there are no tricks to get this mega cell phone discount, there are two requirements.
- You must be busy.
- Your employer must be in corporate discount list your his mobile operator (or, as a longer process, you must get operator permission to add your employer).
The easiest way to find out your immediate mobile phone corporate discount is to simply call your carrier and ask for it.
For example, if you work for The New York Times, you can get an 18 percent discount on monthly service in Sprint. If you work for EDS, Sprint can give you a 26 percent discount.
Corporate discounts on mobile phones typically range from 15 percent to 25 percent on each monthly bill. AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless offer similar corporate discounts on mobile phones. You just have to be hired and you just have to ask for it.
Even if the phone you are using is an Android phone (regardless of who made it: Samsung, Google, Huawei, Xiaomi, etc.), you can still take advantage of these discounts.
While getting a corporate discount can be as simple as calling your carrier and asking for it, you may run into some issues.
If your company is too small, you may not be on your carrier’s discount list. This discount is usually offered only by large companies. Even if you work for a reputable company, your carrier may still not have a set discount.
Also, even if you get immediately approved for a discount, you might have to wait for one or two billing cycles for the savings to go into effect. In addition, smaller cell phone carriers and some prepaid wireless carriers may not offer corporate cell phone discounts.
Cell phone carriers are supposed to verify your employment. However, this job verification isn’t always properly conducted. Sometimes you’re just taken for your word.
