It’s funny to be a college graduate when you’re looking at friends still in school and one of them is asking to suggest a cheap phone they could buy because their iPhone (it’s always an iPhone [and it’s already has a cracked screen]) has bit the dust.
Well, if they plan on being T-Mobile customers (and the planning is key as you’ll see below), they can now save a couple more bucks in their already thin wallets. College students and staff of K-12 and secondary schools can apply for a one-time device discount of $48.
The process involves entering basic information about your name, school and status. For faculty and staff, they’ll need to provide images of their school-issued identification card as well as a letter of employment on school letterhead. For students, they’ll need their date of birth, a current class schedule, ID card, current registration receipt and letter of enrollment on school letterhead.
The end result should be an automatically activated coupon code and $48 off any device priced above $100 in the cart. Oh, and it needs to come with a new subscription — tough luck on the fine print, upgraders.
