    I'm sure many of you already know this, but I drug my friend in the other day to a VZW store because he used to have an Iphone (the screen cracked, go figure) and I finally convinced him to give up the far inferior AT&T service for the far superior Verizon/Vodafone service.

    Anyways I told him to get a Tour (He wanted a storm at first, I already had a Storm and told him he would be dissapointed coming from an Iphone to a Storm so I told him to either wait for Storm 2 or get a Tour) and we go to sign up for his plan. We were there on our lunch breaks, dressed up in our waiter uniforms, which by the way if you ever been to a Carrabbas, unless we have the apron on, we look like business people, so we told him we worked for Carrabbas, and he said its worth a shot to look at the computer for discounts, and bada-bing bada-boom 20% off everything! It was under the computer as "OS Restaurant Partners" (Its a corporation, Outback, Carrabbas, Bonefish Grill, Flemmings, ect) So I was like "Hey man I work for them too, what about me?" He told me to just bring in a paycheck stub and the discount would be applied immediately. Great Success!

    Who knew being a waiter in college would get me a 20% corporate discount on my VZW bill?? Haha anyways, I am happy, go check to see if where you work gets you a discount.

    I work for Prudential and get a discount. I actually found it just clicking around on the main Prudential real estate page and told everyone in my office, even those on other networks. (This goes for anyone employed by Prudential). So it definately is worth a shot!

    I work for UPS as a truck unloader, and get 25% off my plan, 20% off data, and 25% off accessories since I work there. Plus, I got my Curve for $50 cheaper than the 2-year pricing, with no mail-in rebates.

    I agree, working during college and getting great discounts is freaking awesome!

    Here's another question for some of you. I have a corporate discount which gets me 20% of voice and data with 25% off accessories. Would I get a % off the purchase of a new phone either at full retail or upgrade price?

    Does Verizon have a list of company employees who receive discounts on their website?

    if you have a company email you can check at the site i posted earlier

    If no company email you can check with your local HR to see, and then i would recommend VZW. Reason i say check with HR first is that the discount may possibly be under a different company name or a group discount.

    If no discount and you have a company of more than 5 people with VZW you can have somoene contact VZW business sales to get the process started. Remember the more lines offered the bigger the discount, but anything is better than nothing in this economy.

    Thanks for the replies. I was looking to change jobs when I get my nursing license. Whether the employer is included in the discount through Verizon will be one of the deciding factors. I just thought it would be helpful with a list to decide where to apply. Crazy huh!?
