If your active duty or a military veteran there are many discounts available to help you save on your monthly phone bill and even unlocked phones. Unlike stores that give you a small discount you can save hundreds a year by taking advantage of military discounts from major wireless carriers such as AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile and more.
Be aware that many of these discounts require you to show up at your local retail locations or send your information. Many times they will want proof that can include anything from a military address to an ID. Take a look at a few of the discounts from major wireless providers and phone brands.
Sprint has a military discount of 15% off your monthly bill. To get the deal you can go to their website, go to your local Sprint store, or call the customer service number to find out exactly how to get this discounted applied to your bill. In all cases you will have to provide your current information as well as some type of identification to show your are active military or a veteran.
If you’re active duty military or a veteran you can get up to 15% off your monthly bill if you are the account holder. For you to get your discount the plan must be $34.99 a month or higher with less than 5 lines total. There are also a few exclusions such as the unlimited plans. You can get this discount at most Verizon Wireless retail locations as well as online as available. They don’t provide a lot of detailed information on their military discounts so calling their store may be your best option for getting the discount.
AT&T has a military discount that can be applied by active duty and veterans to get 14% off the total bill. The discount only applies to the primary line on the account which is held by the person getting the military discount. To get the discount you must go to your local AT&T store and provide some type of identification that shows your military status. I would call ahead before showing up to make sure your local store has someone who can apply this discount to your account.
T-Mobile offers military discounts to both active duty and retired military personal. The discounts they give depend on many different factors but range from 8% to 15% off the total of your monthly bill. To get the discount you can call their customer service line at 1-877-453-8824 or go to the corporate discount page and follow the directions. You will of course need your military ID or other form of identification.
U.S. Cellular has a page dedicated to showing what discounts are available to members of the military. They currently only give discounts to active duty military but their discounts extend to your total bill and not just one line like other carriers. The page linked above has all of the information you need to claim the deals including the phone number you need to call to be able to get the 15% off your monthly bill.
There may be other discounts and coupons out there for military and as we find them we will post them here. Always check out the terms and conditions of these discounts before applying to make sure you are getting the most out of the discount. There may be some instances where you can get a larger discount from your employer than with the military discount. If you’re a veteran, make sure you have some sort of identification as noted on the phone companies website’s to be able to prove you’re status to get the deals above.
