    Default Buisness Discount etiquette

    I am a contract designer for lots of companies, and have my own email account with a few of the ones I spend most of my time in. One of my email accounts qualify for a discount through Verizon. Would it be acceptable to receive a discount because I have an email account from a company that does not technically pay me directly?

    I wouldn't have a problem with it, personally. It's a company you do you work with and you have a valid work email. Why not? You can even set up the discount online.

    If they give it to you, have at it.

    Thanks, I went ahead and did it (after asking my mom :P) 20% off my bill and 25% off accessories.

    My feeling is the carriers nickel and dime every customer to death that if you can get a discount, take it.

    Why not get the discount?
    I haven't worked for the company I get a discount through for 7 years.
    I'm not giving my discount up until they kick me off.

    I worked for my company for 32 years. I retired two years ago and still get the discount. Technically I should not, because I no longer "work" for them, nor do I have a company email address anymore. But, I have not told my carrier that I retired, and they have never asked. So, I will take the discount as long as I can.
