12-13% off monthly bill AT&T and Verizon YMMV As most of you are aware, Facebook has recently launched a new messaging service. This service assigns you a @facebook.com email address which can be used on your respective carrier's website to make you eligible for a 12% AT&T discount and/or 13% Verizon discount.
1. Sign up for Facebook's messaging service . Note that they are slowly rolling this service out so if you do not have a @facebook email you can opt in for the service, in which after some time your request will be processed (some are receiving immediately while others have to wait a week or more). Eventually this service is supposed to roll out to all Facebook users. YMMV
2. Go into your privacy settings, then click View Settings for Connecting on Facebook. From there set "Send you messages" to everyone. You can change it back afterwards.
3. Once you obtain your @facebook email address, enter it at your respective service provider's website in which you want the discount for.
Enter Email Here for AT&T
Enter Email Here for Verizon
4. Check your message inbox on facebook (Make sure to check the Other section and Junk Section which is at the bottom of the page when looking at Other).
For those trying to get AT&T discount, You may get a message stating the wireless number you entered is not associated with this organization's account, but there should be a link you can follow through to complete it under "Individual Responsibility" basically saying you are a member or employee of Facebook.
I understand many of you get better discounts through your employer, but for this is for those of you who may not be eligible through other means. Also this is only confirmed to work for wireless service, not sure if it works for anything else.
"How do I set up a free @facebook.com email address?
To set up a free @facebook.com address, go to your Messages view and click the "Claim your Facebook email" link.
Your email address will match your public username, for example:
Once you set up your email address, people can email you using any traditional email system (e.g., Hotmail, Yahoo or Gmail), and the emails will be delivered to your Facebook Messages. When you send messages to external email addresses, the emails will be formatted to look like Facebook messages, including your name, your profile picture and your message."
