Corporate Discount

I signed up for ATT and placed my order on Friday.  Today I find out that my mother's company has corporate discount for ATT members.  I read that the discounts include credit for new service and activation, but it has to be done by ordering through the Premier Portal.  Also, there are discounts on the monthly bill.  How do I apply the credit and the monthly discount?

 

I tried registering on the ATT site, but my number is not in the system yet.  I had placed in my order to move my current number from another carrier.  I think that since the number is not moved over yet until I activate my phone, the system will not let me register on the site.

 

Any advice will be helpful.

 

Thanks.

Hi HYEE - You may be able to ask for the credit to be applied post order, however I cannot guarantee it would be. If you'd like to speak with someone to see if your employee discount can be retroactive, please send me a private message with your name, account number, phone number and the best time to contact you.

Re: Corporate Discount

Thank you all for your assistance.  The order is placed under my mom's name, and it is a family plan.

 

I have contacted ATT by phone, and the rep told me that the credit is not retroactive.  If I call and get another rep, would that rep apply the credit?

Sorry, it was worth an ask to see if this type of credit could be applied retroactively, but it sounds like it's not. I suggest you do a close review of your employee discount plan to make sure you're getting everything that it offers.

BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE! BEWARE!         they tell you there is a corporate discount, they encourage you to apply! Then they give you the run-a-round! Your numbers are wrong, your identification isn't the right kind.  you will send in your papers dozens of times and never get acknowledgment that they were received, and when you call they tell you the numbers were wrong. AGAIN!.  We, at my job, were told by a A T & T salesperson that we were eligible, and all who carried A T & T all applied. NOT ONE PERSON has received a discount of any kind. not one! We started the process in April of 2011 and here it is December!   don't fall into a paperwork trap! Just know that A T & T says they will, but they are being so dishonest when they say that. ITS ALL A LIE!

Re: Corporate Discount

So I'm under a family plan under my dad. Is it better to get out of his plan and start my own with the corporate discount which is activation fee waived and discounts on wireless? Or is it better to stay on family plan?

1.   You already have service, why would there be activation?  

2.    You would be charged $18 to accept billing responsibility 

3.    Group plans are always cheaper.  Minimum plan for 1 gig is $25 and the portion subject to discount.  Add $20 line fee, $5 +/- taxes and possibly phone installments.   So the least you pay for your own account is $45 just for service.  https://www.att.com/plans/wireless/mobile-share-flex.html

4.   Unlimited plans don’t allow discounts (if that’s what you were thinking.

How often are you paying activation fees? (so that seems negligible)

How much are you paying to split his plan vs. a plan of your own? (likely splitting is cheaper unless you are getting a HUGE discount).
