Re: veteran discounts

@carlos.  Active duty and veterans receive a 15% discount. Need to take your DD Form 2 (retired) or DD Form 214 to a ATT Corp store to sign up.

Re: veteran discounts

If you live in Texas you can you use your Veteran ID card or your Texas Drivers License if you have the veteran status on your license.

Re: veteran discounts

@Obeba7 As far as I know, it applies to Puerto Rico but you can’t do it online. You need to go to a corporate store.

Re: veteran discounts

As an FYI on this, the bill doesn't ever show anything called a "Military Discount."  It will show a "Foundation Account" number or FAN on the upper right of the bill.  On the bill you will see a line item for Discount for Unlimited Plans. Also, despite what the sales person probably told you, it only applies to the base service charge AFTER the Paperless & AutoPay discount.  **It does not include any device charges or line access charges in the discount.**  It has taken me several months and several phone calls to get this information conveyed clearly.  

As an aside-- this is different from the Verizon account that I still have for other family members.  Verizon wireless gives the full discount percentage against all service charges, excluding surcharges &  taxes.  Man Frustrated

@david_reaves

Thats not exactly how Verizon does it.  The plan and line fee structure on current unlimited plans is such that the 15% discount is rather insignificant compared to total cost of plan and fees.  Especially as lines cost $35 on the current plan, as opposed to $20. 

   On older unlimited and regular plans Verizon still offers only 15% off the plan only.  

Taken off their FAQ:

 

 

  • Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited and Above Unlimited:
    • 1 phone – $15 discount
    • 2 phones – $35 discount
    • 3+ phones – $40 discount.  (Maximum discount is $40)

    Note: If you signed up for Go Unlimited or Beyond Unlimited before 6/18/18, you have a $15 account-level discount, no matter how many lines you have. You can mix and match unlimited plans on your account to get the new discount listed above.


  • Most other advertised Verizon standard plans: 15% discount

ATT has always only taken the discount off the core data plan.  Which is still 17.25 a month for my unlimited plus plan.

Re: veteran discounts

We applied a few months ago at our local ATT store for a veterans discount but it hasn’t occurred yet. Why not?

Re: veteran discounts

@MimiBecky  Usually takes 2-3 months for the veterans discount to appear.  Did you go to a ATT corp store or a authorized retailer?  I have used the ATT corp store for getting the FAN discounts.  Links below are to a store locator and the ATT veterans signup page.  Will have to have a veterans advantage ID card to signup online.

 

I am a customer like you, do not work for ATT, just trying to help one veteran to another.
