Does T-Mobile offer a student discount?
Did your smartphone just die? Or maybe it’s been annoying you and you need something new. For a while anyway, you can get a discount on a new phone from T-Mobile if you’re a student or work in education.
How much is the T-Mobile educational discount?
The current offer for students, faculty, and staff (college and K-12) is $60 off select smartphones with a value up to $240. The caveat is that you have to sign up for a new service plan with T-Mobile, so if you are happy with your current carrier, this may not be the best plan for you.
Maybe T-Mobile’s prepaid plan is exactly what you are looking for. Unfortunately, prepaid devices don’t qualify for the discount. However, if you are an international student, their international calling plan might be perfect.
How to qualify for T-Mobile’s academic device discount?
You have to pick up the phone to get a new phone. In order to find out if you qualify, you must call 1-877-624-9704 and talk with a representative. So in order to get a smartphone to text people to avoid calling them, you have to call someone. Ironic, huh?
