Save On Monthly Cell Phone Costs

Volume 4, No. 4

 Leveraging a contract between the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities (AICCU) and AT&T Wireless, CLU employees can now receive a 15% discount on service plans and up to 25% off of equipment at an AT&T wireless store. The discounts exclude iPhone equipment, but include service plans for the iPhone. Discounts apply not only to staff, but to all numbers on a family plan as well.

To receive your discount, present the contract number 3156842 along with your CLU ID at an AT&T wireless store (they’ll even accept a pay advice). Existing AT&T customers can also receive the discounts, although account transfer fees may apply. Note that according to AT&T the discount may not appear for a couple of billing cycles.

 While CLU is not advocating one service provider over another, this is yet another benefit of working at CLU.
