Authorized dealer discount?

Recommended Posts

Hello All, 

 

Staples is becoming an authorized retailer for Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. Our Verizon rep told us we'll get half off our bill now if we have them, but we haven't heard form the Sprint rep just yet. Does anyone know when kind of kickbacks sprint gives for being an authorized retailer?

The 3rd-party employee plan for Sprint is $20/month, +$10 for the Premium Data Addon. You can add TEP for +$8/+11. My bill is $42.00 usually. That gives you unlimited Data, unlimited Text, unlimited Mobile-to-Mobile, and 3000 anytime minutes.

 

With the Sprint employee plan, there's no contract, but you also do not get normal upgrades. You do get access to a special store called Sprint Rewards Me, where you can earn bonus money. After being on it for 6 months, you can buy handsets at national 2-year pricing, once a year, off contract.

Do Best Buy employees get that as well? I wouldn't mind working part-time there for extra cash to fund my smartphone addiction as well as get that awesome discount.

National Retail doesn't get acces to the SRM site AFAIK.

Ah. You know, that would make sense. Cut down on fraud; actual Sprint store employees are much more likely to keep Sprint as their main carrier, after all.

Awesome, thanks for the info! 

cheap phones or not, I'm all about the cheaper plans. Will I be able to do this with an existing contract?

What the sh*t is that? As a corporate employee we have 20 month upgrade cycles just like consumers. And NO option for One Up. Handset pricing also is usually identical to standard consumer pricing, without the holiday and incidental offers. They are off contract however, and our plan is free, unlimited minutes, text, and data, discounted Hotspot plans. TEP is normal price, but all of our add-ons are 25% off, including TEP.

Calm down, calm down :P when I typed "Sprint employee", I meant "Preferred Retailer employee". You know, what I had been talking about the entire time in my post...

 

The really bizarre thing about "Sprint Rewards Me Plus" is that only certain handsets are available at certain times, in limited stocks. So good luck getting the device you want, when you want it. Otherwise, have fun paying MSRP. And no option for One Up, either.

I just contacted my mangers and they told me I have to sell a phone before they'll approve my discount. I'm not sure what they have to do with the approval process, since i thought they were done through our rep..but I guess I'll have to wait to get my discount :(

It's because SRM is sponsored by the manufacturers, and not Sprint.

 

The manufactures (rightly so) assume that if you have the phone you are more likely to sell that model over a competitors model.

My least favorite part. I was/am amazed at the sheer amount of research, planning, and coordination it takes to make PoGs though.

That's why I liked implementing it.

I had mine for a couple months before quitting. Never got much on it thanks to my shitty managers always stealing my sales. I just keep the card now to open doors with. I gotta use it a lot at US Customs

Plan-O was awful! They rarely worked out perfectly and all my store managers had to approve everything...TWICE!

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
