Just about every major cell phone provider has discount for large corporations or groups, even when it’s an existing personal line. While most people know about their company’s discount, some do a bad job of advertising them. In addition, many folks can get student/employer discounts using their school e-mails. So grab your work or school e-mails, visit these links, and find out what discounts are available to you. You may be pleasantly surprised.
I just found out that I could even get $10 off an iPhone plan from AT&T Wireless. Tempting!
