Tuesday, December 14, 2010 - 5:26 PMAlliant Credit Union - Details
Can anyone recommend a Credit Union that anyone can qualify for & easily open online to enable a Sprint Discount.

Someone asked me to find out & I thought DepositAccounts.com may have a sound recommendation for this or other easy to acquire Sprint Discounts, -Thanks

Most are far more stringent.

All you have to do is join the local PTA.

 

Pretty simple

If you're not already within a credit union's field of membership, your only other way in is through an association if you are lucky and such an option is available. 

As pdxmale pointed out, the PTA is an easy one to join to qualify for membership with Alliant.  I joined my local PTA for $5 - the other option was a national membership which was $15 or so, if I recall correctly.   The local PTA eventually sent me the card attesting to my membership, but in the meantime I had my cancelled check and a copy of the application as submitted in case I was asked to present proof. 

Only you can decide if a one-time $15 expense measured against the considerable savings that I assume you will reap ongoing from the Sprint discount is worthwhile.
