Military Discount

Does At&t plan on having a deal similar to T-Mobile for military? I've been an At&t customer for 14 years, but I still pay $280 just for the unlimited plus plan and insurance on 4 lines. I also receive 25% off the price of my plan. My phones are paid off. With T-Mobile I would be saving over $100 and I wouldn't have to pay for Netflix anymore.

Re: Military Discount

ATT already offers a military discount and it is 15%, not 25%. How are you paying $280 for 4 lines? The price for 4 lines on unlimited plus (old plan, not current enhanced) without the military discount should be $185 before taxes and fees. The 15% discount should drop the price another $16.50. Even with insurance, you shouldn’t be paying more than $220.

Line 3 $20 for access

6.65 taxes and fees

 

Line 4 $20 for access

Mobile device protection pack 25.97

Multi device protection pack support $9.02

Taxes and fees 6.65

Re: Military Discount

The unlimited plus does not get any employer discounts, so you are not getting that 25% discount. You can get the 15% military, though. You are paying quite a bit for that insurance. Line 4 is paying $34 alone, that is crazy high. What are you getting for that much? Personally, I think the insurance is a terrible product and have never bought it myself. Most of the experts here agree. Insurance won't be any cheaper with t-mobile because it is the same insurance provider.

Re: Military Discount

The insurance isn't that good in my opinion. Only used it once in the past 2 years. The claim went fine and got my phone replaced with no problem. I had to file another claim a month later and was told I could file it, but my insurance would be cancelled and I wouldn't be eligible to get insurance again for 12 months since I had 2 claims in 1 year. So I just bought a used phone instead.

Yep, that's another $15 or $25 discount you should be getting depending on how long you have had the unlimited plus plan. The Directv discount originally started at $25 but was reduced to $15 sometime last year. That discount is not on your phone bill. It would be on your Directv bill.

Re: Military Discount

I just looked through my bill again. I didn't notice i wasn't getting my discount. When i changed plans they didn't tell me i would lose my discount.

Re: Military Discount

As I noted earlier, there are no corporate discounts on the unlimited plans. Autopay and military discounts are the only ones available and you can get both.

Re: Military Discount

Thanks for your help. I just called them. I was paying too much for insurance. They gave me a promotional discount of $10 per month that I keep as long as I have my plan. I will be stopping by the store to get my military discount started. All together I should save around $50 a month now.

Then why are you paying for it?

Re: Military Discount

I ended up switching to T-Mobile. Now I only pay $100 a month and get free Netflix. Directtv is gone next for Hulu live.

When T-mobile matches AT&T coverage, then the prices will be equal.  And I suspect it will be T-mobile who will go up, which they have been doing steadily for 4 years.
