Why did I get a request to verify my eligibility to continue receiving the discounts I already receive as part of the Sprint Discount Program?

Because discounts are based on a contractual relationship between Sprint and the company, individuals requesting a discount must periodically validate their affiliation with the company tied to the discount. We ask all customers that currently receive monthly service discounts to re-validate their eligibility when a:

  • Phone is upgraded and no revalidation has occurred recently.
  • Request is submitted to change from one discount to another.

How will I know when it's time to validate my eligibility to continue receiving my program benefits?

We will send you text message reminders.
