Does Exede offer military, AARP, or senior discounts?

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
Since state taxes just went up in my area & sales tax keeps going up (11% now), we are trying to find out if we can cut back on some costs.
I'm a caregiver for my disabled mother who is a military widow and senior citizen with an AARP membership.
Are there any discounts available for either military or AARP or seniors?

We have been customers since 2012 and are still paying the lease fee for the modem and have the Freedom plan.

Hi Zanne

Unfortunately we do not have discounts at this time.

Just out of curiosity, what state are you in?  We've been hit with a lot of tax increases in Louisiana and our governor is still talking about raising taxes.  I'm pretty sure he is going to be a one term governor.

I'm in Louisiana as well. And my air conditioner just broke and will take a week for the part to come in to fix it-- it's 88 degrees in here. It wouldn't be so bad if it was dry, but it's humid as hell. I was loading youtube videos of snowstorms to imagine myself in a cooler place.

Zanne, don't feel bad, been around since 2004 and, I'm still paying the lease fee. The good thing is, by adding Easy Care, when the modem needs replaced (failure or plan change requires it) it won't cost you any extra to get it done.

I'm on my third modem, all due to changing plans. (WildBlue to Exede 12mbps to Viasat 25Mbps and, I may be going to Visast 2, and another modem, depending on what pops for me in the next few days.)
