Silly question maybe, but in NYC, anything that helps save money is welcome:

    Do teachers in NYC get any kind of discount with any cellphone plan? I ask because I plan to move soon, and some people have said to me that the teacher's union there has some kind of discount plan that helps teachers save money on certain cellphone companies. What's your experience been like?
    Thanks for any help!

    I teach in Orange County NY and I get a discount with Verizon. It is not through my union. Verizon has various discounts for certain groups of public employees. Check out their website.

    Some teachers in a variety of districts qualify for a discount with all of the major carriers. I agree with Janlee - type in discounts for teachers and see what comes up. Mine is currently about 20% and I am with Verizon. I believe the state teacher association may be able to provide guidance, as well.

    If you work for the city of New York, you will have discounts at your deposal. I have a discount with T-mobile.

    Most teacher unions or associations have access to many discounts on everything from cell phones to auto insurance. Are they always the absolute cheapest price? Well, do your homework on that, but they are out there. Good luck.
