Military Discounts

Recommended Posts

T-Mobile has a great cell phone plan for military.  They are offering the T-Mobile One unlimited plan at 20-50% off depending on how many phones you have:

I’m paying $80 for unlimited everything on 2 phones which includes free Netflix (if you already have Netflix, they take over the payments), international roaming, hotspot, etc.

Yep I get this too. Super cheap. Just gotta get used to the finicky coverage if you're switching from Verizon or something.

I tried T-mobile. Lasted less than a month. Their coverage sucks. Completely inop on base it Little Rock and not good in other places.

Be sure to check T-Mobile coverage not just in places you live and work, but also transit frequently.  We looked at a stretch of interstate that we use to travel back and forth to see family and it looked like trying to get coverage in northern Siberia.  Even the customer service rep at the store shrugged her shoulders.  We are keeping our eye on the Sprint merger and how that will change their coverage.  The price plan is as-advertised, though.  No gimmicks.

I can't imagine it's going to get any better with the Sprint merger. I switched from Sprint originally, and if there's one provider with less coverage than T-Mobile it's definitely Sprint. I doubt there's a single square inch of land that Sprint has that T-Mobile doesn't already have covered, haha.

Sprint also operates on CDMA based networks while T-mobile uses GSM. While most phones ship with radios for both, it probably puts a significant drain on your battery to have it constantly searching both for better service.

Anyone seeing this in your Verizon "My Offers"? If it really is $30 off on top of the current military discount, that's a total $45 off. I keep getting an error page when I click continue, so I can't confirm if it works.

Image isn’t working for me but if it’s a military discount on unlimited data it’s definitely a thing. I got a random text and called Verizon because I thought it was a scam. Saving $10 a month now for unlimited (previously had 8 gbs/mo).

The best way is to check out a book from your local library on that subject matter. You can get a general idea on the subject. But to get into the details it's always best to buy a book.

 

https://www.amazon.com/Military-Advantage-2017-Military-com-Veterans/dp/1682472299/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1540249746&sr=1-1&keywords=the+military+advantage

 

Sorry if sombody else already posted this book. There are about 6 pages of replies. It's allot of replies. How can anybody find time to read 6 pages? Anyways, I hope the book helps. I read it, and found stuff like free braces, interest free loans, and free travel.

Confirming that I got the extra Verizon discount to work...total of $45 off per month.

I spent 5 hours on the phone “with” them over the course of 3 days, and only 2 of those hours were with an actual person after getting disconnected several times. Still no answers. Lots of confusion. All I wanted to know is what my bill would be if I signed up with them. Would you mind sharing what your monthly bill is? Would be very much appreciated!

I used their chat function.  Much easier.  My monthly bill for two lines unlimited is $97 after taxes and bullshit.

Was there a certain code or verbiage that you used to get them to give you the discount?  

Also, I'm currently on an 8GB/month plan.  It's usually just barely enough.  Considering switching to unlimited, but I heard the speeds decrease.  Any truth to that?

I did this back in August so not sure if its still legit.  I have the standard mil discount and then the $30 off as well.  No speed decrease whatsoever.

My wife got some weird text back in the summer from Verizon about a extra military discount. I called because it looked like a scam but it ended up being legit. After taxes and the bs charges it’s $100 for 2 lines with unlimited everything. I haven’t noticed any speed decrease in my phone but the wife’s phone which is newer than mine has been really slow, I’m guessing it’s a phone issue since mine is normal.
