T-Mobile discontinues its Advantage Monthly Discount program for businesses

T-Mobile discontinues its Advantage Monthly Discount program for businessesAccording to a Tmo News report, T-Mobile will axe its Advantage Monthly Discount program towards the end of this month. From March 31, the carrier has started sending notifications - via mail - about the discontinuation of the program to customers who have been using this discount.

The T-Mobile Advantage Program, under which monthly plans are offered at discount rates to business owners and their employees, is being discontinued for new customers starting April 1. However, the current users of the program will see their discount phased out on April 25.

The Advantage Monthly Discount program offers monthly discounts to groups like employees of small and big businesses, government and the military. But, as a result of the discontinuation of the program by T-Mobile, businesses will no longer receive the discounts after April 25, though government employees and members of the military will still be able to avail the discount.

With Advantage Program monthly corporate discounts being axed by T-Mobile, the carrier plans to replace the employee rate plan discounts for any existing enrollees with $25 reward cards each time they purchase a new device.

About the move to discontinue monthly corporate discounts, T-Mobile CEO John Legere said that "the old programs were designed to help big carriers close big corporate contracts, with employees as bargaining chips;" and added: "We aren't playing that game anymore. This change is about simplifying wireless for everyone . including employees of small and large companies alike."
