Discounts?

Member
I was just wondering if Verizon offered student as well as employer discounts?  I was a former AT&T customer but switched because more of my friends etc were Verizon customers.  When I was on AT&T I was getting a 15% discount on my service because I am a student at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (IUP).  I see that they have employer discounts but is there a special website I have to go to or don't they offer student discounts? Any insight is appreciated.

Hello and welcome!   Yes, verizon does have student discounts but I don't think they are as comprehensive as some of the other carriers.   You have to go to their employee discount site first (see below).   I have provided a few additional articles below that refer to the student discount programs.   They may or may not have something that covers you but it might :smileyhappy:

I'm really sorry.   But at least you got an opportunity to look in the right place and see.   I think this is another area where Verizon with their largest network and all really should do a better job in matching what the other carriers are doing as far as providing more student discounts.   It's funny . . . we try to appeal to young people with texting, tweeter, music and all that stuff which is fine.    However, we forget that students are on limited incomes and really need a little break as well.   Sometimes a student just NEEDS a communication device just for communication and not all the extra stuff either!

 

I would encourage the Verizon executives reading this (and I know you are) to improve this area and do so quickly.   Gb755c . . . please check back perodically as you never know :smileyhappy:
