Does Sprint offer a student discount?
If you are paying full price for your cellular phone service, whether with Sprint or with another carrier, you might be able to pay less. If the college or university you are attending has their employees on Sprint, you can take advantage of a discounted rate. (The same goes for several other carriers.) It pays to shop around for wireless service once you get to college to see what discounts are available.
How much is the Sprint educational discount?
It is unclear how much the discount is, because Sprint’s website is rather hush-hush about that figure. A number floating around the website is 50%, but that looks like it is directed toward businesses switching their employees to Sprint from another carrier.
How to qualify for Sprint’s discount pricing?
To find out if your school has an agreement with Sprint, enter your email address in the form at http://sprint.p.delivery.net/m/p/nxt/dev/wdyw.asp. If you are already a Sprint customer, you can enter your information on the right-hand side of the page to see if you qualify, but they add this disclaimer that many of their plans are “already discounted and my not qualify.” You can also take your student ID to a local Sprint distributor to learn more.
