Get a cell phone discount

Cell phone providers (Verizon, AT&T, Cricket, Sprint, US Cellular, T-Mobile, Nextel, Alltel, etc.) can use a Foundation Account Number (FAN) to give a discount to people who work, to active military plus Dept of Veterans Affairs employees or those with an AARP membership!

Stay with me on this…. AARP costs about $16 a year–(cheaper if you get it for longer than 1 yr) to can get you a 20% discount on your cell phone bill. On a $50 cell monthly bill that is $120 savings a year. After the cost of the AARP card you save $104 a year!

HERE IS HOW. (Example given is for AT&T. All others contact your cell phone provider for the FAN discount procedure and ask if they give discounts for AARP.) If you are:

  • age 50 and over: $16 AARP membership covers both you and your spouse or partner.
  • under age 50: you will need to be on the AARP membership of someone who is age 50 (parent, spouse, partner, etc) (In other words, you might have to buy a $16 AARP membership for your parent if they don’t have one, in order to get a nice cell phone discount–but that way you can both get a cell phone discount….even if you don’t use the same cell phone provider.)

If you have an AARP membership, simply go to the AT&T Corporate store with your AARP card and get the discount.

If you don’t yet have an AARP membership-AARP membership application call toll-free, 1-888-687-2277, Monday-Friday, 7 a.m. – 12 midnight EST
After you have it go to an AT&T CORPORATE store to show ID and the AARP ID, in order to get your discount applied. Call before going, as the stores may change hours or locations.
