So what would you do in my position?

I called Sprint to see if my job qualified for a employer discount. I told them the company I worked for and they said they found no matches for it. After we got off the phone she called me back and said she found one for a 27% discount.

once I got the Email I noticed she had just approved a discount for me due to a typo.

another words i'm getting a discount for a company I don't work for.

Should I speak up or just act like I don't know and get my discount, they arn't going to like check up on where I work are they?

Re: So what would you do in my position?

Personally, I wouldn't do it, but that's me. Though if you search in the VIP forum for threads started by me, I started one a few years ago for 17% off, which recently went to 19% off all services. It is for family and friends, so it will work for you and is legit. The difference in the 8% is up to you.

Yeah, you picked up on that? It's kind of the point, you know?

Apple users should go where other Apple users are, to get information on their products without being questioned, bashed, dogged or belittled by a user of another device. As of recently, PPCG has not been that place, though they are trying to right that wrong.

You'll likely see more of what I am talking about on that front coming soon.

Re: So what would you do in my position?

rainfreak it's a good idea to shift people towards sites that have better support for their phones. i think you guys should do this for the webos/palm, iphone and blackberry sections here. make this site strictly android and wp7.... i guess have a limited section for winmo too but it appears there is not much demand for that anymore. you guys have got to look to the future of this site.

to the OP, i would just not say anything and keep the discount. there was a thread here years back that showed people how to get a discount and i used it and said i worked for citibank and i had the full 27% discount for over 3 years and they never even questioned it. again it all depends on your morals.
