T-Mobile Corporate Discounts List

T-Mobile

T-Mobile, like many other wireless providers, has a large corporate discount list where many major companies offer big savings. If you work for one of the employers on their discounts list you can receive big discounts on your phones as well as plans. Corporate discounts are one of the best ways to save each month on your plan with some major employers offering up to 20% off the total monthly price. These discounts are easy to set up on your new account or existing account by going to their website or by calling T-Mobile at 877-447-1264.

We’ve compiled a list of corporate discounts from T-Mobile as well as a guide on how to search for your employer and make sure you’re receiving all of the discounts available. We do our best to keep this list updated, but we don’t make any guarantees to the current validity of these discounts so always check with T-Mobile as well as your employer to see what the current rate is.

For corporate discounts at T-Mobile call 877-447-1264 or visit T-Mobile.com

Current List of T-Mobile Corporate and Employee Discounts

Update: T-Mobile has ended their corporate discounts program that was previously called the T-Mobile Advantage Program. Because they have ended their discounts program, we have removed all of the companies that have discounts and information on this program as the only way to receive discounts on your phone or lines is if you were grandfathered into the program.

New Way To Save: You can still call T-Mobile to see what special discounts are available by following this link to their website or by calling 877-447-1264. You can many times get close to the same discount as the corporate discount by having their specialist figure out the right plan for you and check their database of discounts that can’t be found anywhere else. The call will only take a few minutes to complete and you should be able to get a better deal on your plan using the discounts available or find some type of other offers to save. You can find some deals online, but the corporate discounts are much easier to figure out by simply calling the number found at the top of any page on their website.

US Cellular Data Plans

US Cellular Plan Review by WalletHero
When choosing a wireless plan from US Cellular you have many options to compare. Depending on how much data you use and whether you need an individual plan or family plan can completely change the plan you need as well as the pricing. In our guide, we compare and review each of the plan options as well as give you insight on which plans may be the best for you. You can also find a deals section to help you find any current promotions for their plans. Browse through our guide below to find everything you need to know about US Cellular’s data plans.

Comparisons and Reviews of US Cellular Plans

US Cellular has many different options when it comes to finding the right plan for your situation. You can choose between individual plans or shared plans which can be better for multiple people using the same plan. We break down all of the plan options below as well as compare the plans to help you make a decision on which would work best for you and give you the best price.

Individual Plans

US Cellular’s individual plans have just a couple of options. As of right now you can choose between the plan with 1GB of data for $60 per month or a 2GB plan for $75 per month. These plans come with unlimited talk and text along with throttled data after you hit your limit of high-speed data. For most users, you will want to opt for the 2GB plan if having high-speed data on your phone is important as 1GB will go pretty fast for those who regularly use data. If you’re looking for more data than they offer with the individual plans, you will want to opt for one of the data sharing plans we review next which essentially go up to unlimited high-speed data. Find more info >

Shared Data Plans and Family Plans

The shared data plans through US Cellular are built for families or other groups who want to have a plan together and group their data. The shared data plans are becoming the norm for most wireless carriers and US Cellular is no exception. When you use a shared data plan you will be combining all of the data into one group and the total high-speed data is subtracted as it’s used by any device within the shared data plan. You can have cell phones added to this plan as well as tablets and other devices. The smallest current plan is at $20 per month for 300MB’s of data with the largest plan having 75GB’s of shared data for $560 per month.

In our opinion, most families and others using the shared data plan should opt for anywhere from the 6GB to 10GB plan. These plans offer enough high-speed data for sharing between 3-5 people while still keeping you within the affordable price range. The 6GB plan is priced at $60 per month and the 10GB plan is available at $100 per month. All of these plans include unlimited minutes and text messages. Find more info >

Prepaid Plans

If you have your own device and want to save some money then a prepaid plan may be an option. The prepaid plans currently start at $45 per month for 1GB of data along with plans at $55 for 3GB of monthly data and $65 for 3GB’s of monthly data. After you hit your allowed data the plans are slowed (throttled), but you will still be able to access data without a surcharge. Just like other plans from US Cellular, all of your minutes and messages are free. The upside with prepaid plans is that you can bring your own device, the plans are slightly cheaper, and you don’t have a contract. Find more info >

Deals for US Cellular Plans and Phones

  • $10 Off Your Purchase – continue through the link to activate at offer where you can get an instant $10 off your order if you’re a new customer.
  • 2 Lines with 8GB for $100 – for a limited time you can get two lines and 8GB of monthly data for only $100.
  • Guaranteed To Beat Verizon & AT&T – you can bring your bill from AT&T or Verizon Wireless to get a guarantee where they will beat the price or you’ll receive a $50 promotional gift card.

Which Plan Is Right For You?

Giving advice on the exact plan for you is nearly impossible as there are so many different combinations that can change depending on how you use your devices. There is some advice we can give when it comes to US Cellular plans and that’s to go with a shared plan. The best value for your money and the amount of high-speed data most individuals and families use will match up well with one of their shared plans. You have many more options available on a shared plan along with the option to add more devices for a small fee. If you don’t know how much data you need then use their data estimator tool to see an estimate on the amount of data you use each month.

If you have any questions, comments, or your own review of US Cellulars plans then leave it in the comment section below. We will do our best to answer any questions about their plans to help you choose the best plan for you.

Phone Discounts For Military and Veterans

Military Phone Wireless Discount

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 a military ID. Take a look at a few of the discounts from major wireless providers and phone brands below. We will be adding more discounts to this list as we find them. If you’re in the military and know of any other discounts available then leave the information in the comments or send us a message.

Sprint
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.

Verizon Wireless
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
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
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.

US Cellular
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.
