    Both me and my mom (I'm a secondary line she's primary) are full time college students and I read on here that some of you are receiving a student discount.
    Well I just called Verizon and the lady I talked to both didn't think there was and couldn't find one.
    So to anyone being credited with. A student discount HOW did you do it?! Lol thanks for any help

    Not that this is the answer you want ... but you could always get a part time job at a company that offers a discount to be with Verizon ...

    Schools often provide student discounts for technology equipment -- like computers, etc. Maybe they also offer discounts on service?

    You may want to investigate with your school. Probably the same office you'd get a computer from.

    When you called Verizon, did you mention that you're employed by your college?

    There isn't a supervisor at your office that may be able to answer your question?

    No I didn't tell them yet just cuz I JUST started I won't even have a pay stub for almost 2 weeks. And no the only discounts they knew about were little ones local places around town are. Not ones provided BY the school

    Well verizon said that they basically dont care if i work for anywhere eligible for a discount because the account isnt in my name. so our only discount hope would be that my moms university has a discount

    First ... find out if she gets a discount.

    Second ... find out if there even IS a discount for you. Because, if there is, and your mom doesn't get one (or you get a better one), you can "assume the liability" of the account and put it in your name.

    I get 15% off AT&T through my school, but I get 21% off through my work for Verizon, so I would suppose it's possible.

    When I entered my student email address it told me I was eligible for an 18% plan discount and a 25% accessory discount

    @rnaiyc I have no clue I never took the offer because I used my 21% from work for Verizon. If it works like my Verizon deal you simply verify what school you go to and they apply the credit to your account.

    Basically for the Verizon discount through work I had to show a Valid drivers license and some form of work id IE check stub, Id card etc. So I'm not sure what you would have to do, I don't think all schools have a discount, I would suggest calling your student adviser or financial aid, they would know for sure and what you have to do.

    Just plugged my old student email in, and qualified for a discount. Unfortunately, I graduated 5 years ago and my account is long gone from the schools system, so I can't access the email VZW sent with details.

    It all has to do with whether or not your school or employer has a contract with verizon to offer discounts for there employees or students. If your work email or school email does not work then you are most likely out of luck... All i had to do was use my work email address and I received the monthly discount.
