AT&T’s Union Discounts

Hey, there!

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 downloading this PDF:

http://www.sagaftra.org/files/sag/documents/ATTFaxVerificationForm.pdf

It’s not an interactive PDF, meaning you can’t fill it in online. You’ll need to download it, print it out and use one of those things called “pens.”

You’ll also need to scan and print out a copy of your SAG-AFTRA card, and have it handy when you fax everything to AT&T.

Fill out page 2 of the form. You probably won’t have your Customer BAN handy (although it is on your bill), so call AT&T at 877-290-5451 and ask them what it is. Then fill that in.

Now, grab the copy of your SAG-AFTRA card and page 2 of the form (you don’t need the explanatory first page), and EITHER fax both of the sheets to 877-667-0534 (the number’s also at the top of the form) OR scan the form and the copy of your union card, and send the PDF in an email to DiscountVerification@IRU.AmCustomerCare.ATT-Mail.com.

You’ll get a text on your cell phone within two business days confirming the receipt of the fax or email, and you’ll see the discount appear on your bill within a couple of months.

Is it worth the hassle? I think so.

On a $200 cell bill, that’s a $360 per year savings.

Hope this helps.

    I feel really good about my demo. It is a quick and fun process, even for someone like me who gets very self concious. :)

    The demos are great. Superb quality. Why go anywhere else?

    Having a well-produced demo is one of the most important things in the VO business. I had a number of demos made from other producers in the past and they all had one thing in common — that manufactured, cookie cutter sound!
    What sets David apart from the rest, besides his affordable price and tremendously fast turn around time, is that all of the clips you record with him sound unique. Each spot sounds like an actual commercial you recorded for a job.
    My agent loved the quality and even asked who produced it to refer his other talent there!

    Thanks again, David for producing such a great, high quality demo for me. You made the process relaxing and enjoyable. I urge anyone reading this unsolicited reply to listen to David’s student demos to hear the difference for yourself. Anyone would be lucky to work with him

    I can not thank you enough. I worked so hard on 15 page IVR project, one day I cryed, look for answers, pull my hear (not really) but I was about until another VO send me this great tool. Thanks!

    When v123 indicates the audition is for a student/ nonprofit are we to assume it is for $0. If so, why does the audition ask for an amount to be entered?

    David,
    I did get this scam through Voice 123. In our discourse, they offered me the gig and they gave me the name of a legit local place to record and the same runaround with the money. I didn’t send anything, but instead, I called the studio to make sure the booking was for the day we set up, and lo and behold, the people there had no idea what I was talking about. I then tried to call back my “contact person” who was setting this up and there was a fax machine beep on the other end. I immediately contacted Voice 123 and told them what had happened. You know what they say…if it sounds togaed to be true, it probably is. Thanks for the reminder!
