Authorized dealer discount?


WeRtechSupport

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.

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!

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
