How the AT&T Military Discount Works

AT&T offers a pretty generous discount to those affiliated with the military: It's a flat 25 percent discount on unlimited plans and includes 5G access for compatible devices.

You do need to sign up for AutoPay and paperless billing to take advantage of this discount.

Who Qualifies for This Discount

Both active-duty members, as well as veterans who have been honorably discharged, are eligible for AT&T's military discount program. Spouses of both living and deceased members can also apply; they need to provide a valid Department of Defense sponsorship card.

To apply as a primary member, you'll need to show one of the following depending on the member's status:

  • Dept. of Defense form DD214
  • Veteran ID Card
  • Veteran-designated driver’s license
  • Valid retired military ID
  • Current AMVETS membership card
  • Veteran Health Insurance card
  • VetRewards card

Active duty members must apply with their .mil email address.

How to Apply

You can apply for the discount at any AT&T store, but you can also submit your information online.

Active duty members can check their eligibility and complete the sign-up process by entering their information on the AT&T savings eligibility page. To get started, enter your military email address and click Submit. Follow the prompts from there to enter your personal information.
