T-Mobile on Wednesday confirmed changes to its Advantage Program which offers employer discounts on rate plans. After hearing from its user base and existing clients, the Uncarrier has decided to grandfather customers into the program. Instead of dumping everyone outright, those who already enjoy discounts because of their employer will get to keep them.
Everyone enrolled in the Advantage Program or who applied to enroll before April 1st will be able to keep a rate plan discount as long as they work at a participating employer and remain on a qualifying plan. All of our Simple Choice plans currently qualify. We will be asking that customers participate in a simple annual online employer verification. That’s it.
Going forward, anyone who works for an employer that qualifies for the Advantage Program will earn $25 credit toward an upgrade or purchase.
