If you have been following the recent rough-and-tumble between T-Mobile and Sprint, you could get the impression that only the big fish fight for new customers. That’s not entirely true, though. Smaller carriers, who typically target a tad different sector of the market, usually keep to themselves and don’t draw too much attention; however, once in a while we get news about a new deal that is intended to lure new customers. This time round it’s Cricket who is interested in increasing the count of its subscribers. The carrier now offers T-Mobile and Metro PCS customers $100 bill credit for switching service provider.
Cricket’s $100 bill credit offer – How it works.
The process of claiming the $100 bill credit is very simple. In fact, all you have to do is part ways with your current carrier and port your number to Cricket. Keep in mind, though, that the deal is available only to T-Mobile and Metro PCS subscribers. Cricket’s offer went live on yesterday and will run through October 19th, so you will have exactly eight weeks to make your move.
In order to receive the credit, you have to sign up to Cricket’s Basic, Smart, or Pro rate plan. The only difference between the plans is monthly data allotment. The Basic plan comes with 500MB of LTE data and costs $40. The Smart plan is priced at $50 and offers 2.5GB of data, while the Pro option includes 5GB of LTE data for $60. However, if you sign up for auto pay you will get $5 discount on each plan and the prices will go down to $35, $45, and $55, respectively. With the $100 credit you would get nearly three months of service for free on the Basic plan.
If you are not fond of contracts, Cricket’s pre-paid offer may be your way out of long-term relationship with your current service provider. Let’s be honest, it’s not a fortune that you will be getting but still it’s free money and who doesn’t like getting stuff for free? If you are interested in Cricket’s deal, head over to the carrier’s website for more details.
