Way back last summer, we were at a Fire Chiefs show, and were given a flyer about Sprint offering a discount for firefighters. We had just switched to Sprint shortly before then, and hadn't heard anything about it.
I went to the local Sprint store to ask, and they said I needed some sort of official ID. At the time, my dept didn't provide any such thing. But now they do.
Went to the Sprint store again today, and the guy there gave me some paperwork to fill out, including some sort of code number he wrote on it. He said to fill it out and fax it in to them, and I'll get a 22% discount on my phone bill. It's only on the primary line on my account, but 22% off that is better than nothing!
So I thought I'd share.
I went looking for an easy link to provide, but didn't come up with one.
I did find some information that looks like AT&T offers a similar discount, and Verizon offers a smaller one.
So if you didn't know about this, and if you're in a fire dept, check with your service provider.
I haven't heard anything specifically about an EMS discount, but there should be one, I think. Ask.
It does require a new 2 yr service contract, unless you are a new customer, in which case, that service contract is already required. Kind of a drag, that, in principle, but we've been pretty happy with our phone service since we switched, and aren't looking to upgrade, so it works for us. I just wish we had known about it at the beginning.
