    Yes... but in the case of the State of Illinois 18% discount, the state
    doesn't bother to tell its employees about it (well, maybe it tells its own
    employees, but the discount also applies to local government and education
    in the state and they don't tell us) and VZW doesn't either. I only know
    about it because one particular store (20 miles away) sends fliers directly
    to the school that mention it.

    Yes... but in the case of the State of Illinois 18% discount, the state
    doesn't bother to tell its employees about it (well, maybe it tells its own
    employees, but the discount also applies to local government and education
    in the state and they don't tell us) and VZW doesn't either. I only know
    about it because one particular store (20 miles away) sends fliers directly
    to the school that mention it.
