There are about a million ways a carrier can woo new customers to join the ranks and convince existing ones that it would be a good idea to stick a little bit longer. Some slash prices of the hottest devices, others offer a bunch of free accessories or throw in more data, etc. Sprint has just come up with an idea to encourage new and existing customers to buy Samsung devices. The carrier is now offering free Amazon Prime services with the purchase of Samsung Galaxy phones.
Sprint Deal on Samsung Galaxy Phones
In case you didn’t know, a year of Amazon Prime subscription costs $99, so it’s a pretty generous offer, especially before the holiday season. What would you have to do to take advantage of the deal? Not much actually. You just need to buy or lease one of Samsung’s latest phones, that is the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6 Edge+ or Galaxy Note 5. You can do so online or in one of Sprint stores. Once you have the phone, the carrier will send you a text message with a link to an Amazon signup page where you will be able to redeem your year of Amazon Prime. The message should arrive within 24 hours of the purchase.
The deal is good for new customers who switch to Sprint from other carriers as well as existing subscribers who are eligible for upgrade or want to add a new line to their account. Another great news is that even if are a current Amazon Prime member, or have other types of Amazon Prime memberships (Amazon Mom, Amazon Student, or Prime Fresh) you can still take advantage of the promotion. In such case you will receive a one year extension of your current level of Amazon Prime membership, which will start on your current membership renewal date. Sprint’s offer lasts through November 30th, however, you will have until January 31st 2016 to redeem the code.
What are the benefits of the Amazon Prime membership?
First of all, you get unlimited free two-day shipping on a countless number of items. Moreover, Amazon Prime includes unlimited access to movies and TV shows with Prime Video, unlimited music streaming with Prime Music, unlimited photo storage with Prime Photos as well as unlimited access to Kindle Owners Lending Library. Prime members also get early access to select Amazon Lightning Deals.
While Amazon Prime may not be of interest for everyone, the deal is certainly worth considering if you are in the market for a new Samsung device on Sprint and want access to free video, music books and other content.
