Traditionally, holiday shopping season begins on Black Friday, however, you don’t have to wait until the last Friday of November to grab a phone at a lower price. Some retailers as well as carriers actually kick of holiday promotions a few days or even weeks early. For instance, Cricket Holiday Sale starts now and includes decent discounts on Android smartphones.
Cricket kicks off Holiday Smartphone Sale offering even free phones
Cricket dropped prices on a number of brands so everyone can find something that matches their preferences. Phablet enthusiasts can enjoy the 5.7-inch LG G Stylo with HD display and 8-megapixel laser focused rear camera which is currently available for $49.99 after $50 mail-in Visa rebate and $50 instant discount. The slightly smaller but still fitting in phablet category Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime with a 5-inch screen is priced at $29.99 after $50 mail-in Visa rebate and $20 instant discount.
Cricket also offers a $50 mail-in rebate for the Moto E which brings the phone’s price down to $0. The ZTE Overture 2 and the LG Risio are available for free as well after $40 and $30 mail-in rebates, respectively. These are not exactly flagship devices, but they are still perfectly capable of providing satisfying Android experience at the lowest cost possible, or actually no cost.
Crickets sales begin today and will last through January 7th 2016. Keep in mind, though, that the deals are good only for new customers who bring their number to Cricket. However, great news is that promotional prices apply whether you order your phone online or buy it in brick and mortar store so you are free to choose the option which works best for you.
Cricket may not have the largest selection of smartphones but the carrier is all about affordability. In addition to selling phones at budget-friendly prices, AT&T’s no-contract subsidiary also offers cheap plans that start at $35 per month with auto-pay with taxes and fees included in the price of the plans. Users get 4G LTE nationwide coverage, calls to, from, and between the U.S., Mexico, and Canada at no additional charge as well as unlimited international texting to 38 countries for customers on Smart and Pro plans. Moreover, as a special holiday gift Cricket allows families to save up to $100 per month with Cricket’s Group Save discount simply by adding eligible lines to their account.
