Veterans Discount

    How long does it take for the discount to be applied?  I got an email that said it was confirmed but my new statement doesn't show the discount yet.  I chatted with an agent and also spoke with someone on the phone but I am still unclear as to when the discount will be applied.  I was told it was confirmed and approved, I guess I am confused as to why it wouldn't already be applied?

        Once a discount is approved it can take up to three bill cycles for it to actually reflect in the bill.

          Hey, magenta2110640! Firstly, as an Army brat, thanks for your service. snn_555 is correct -- it can take a little time for the discount to reflect. A good marker for where you are in that process is when your bill cycle changes. All accounts that receive monthly discounts are grouped and billed together -- so your bill cycle will have the same start, close, and due dates as anyone else receiving a Veteran's discount for your particular service branch. Before the discount starts applying, you'll receive one prorated statement (for a partial month of service) while your billing dates are being shifted to match everyone else on that discount group. Have you had a bill yet for a partial month with a new due date? Or a bill for one month plus a few extra days, but due a little later than usual? Once this happens, the next full statement with the new due date is the one you'll see the discount on.
