I’m a SAG-AFTRA member. My AT&T iPhone is my lifeline, but my cell bill is insane. And I’m constantly reminded by my fellow SAG-AFTRA members that I can get a 15% discount on my insane cell bill.
I finally got around to taking care of that.
You can too. Here’s how.
To be clear, this is just for SAG-AFTRA members.
(It’s one more reason to work hard to get into the union. This is in addition to how young you’ll look, how much slimmer and sexier you’ll be, and that you might get to observe Ed Asner wolf down dinner during a board meeting. Fascinating stuff.)
And this is only for your AT&T wireless service – it doesn’t work for home phone service, U-verse or anything else that AT&T might be selling you. That means the discount is only for cell phone service, wireless mobile modem service and the like.
(Seriously. Don’t call AT&T and ask if you can apply the discount to your other stuff. I tried. I was rejected.)
So, start by logging in to your SAG.org account, and viewing the deal:
…select Any category and Any local (it’s very important that you do this as it won’t show up if your local is preselected, as it’s a national deal), then scroll down to the AT&T entry (the displayed list of deals is in alphabetical order), then follow the instructions shown.
You’ll be whisked off to the UnionPlus site, where you’ll fill out an online form, and then given a coupon and instructions on how to redeem it.
Is it worth the hassle? I think so.
On a $100 monthly cell bill, that’s a $180 per year savings.
Hope this helps.
