Deal: Switching to Sprint gets you free unlimited for a year!
We often tease Sprint for its desperate attempts at getting customers on other networks to switch over, but this latest deal is a doozy, and well worth investigating.
Until June 30, 2017, customers on T-Mobile, AT&T, or (especially) Verizon get up to five lines of free unlimited service by switching over to Sprint. There are a few caveats, which we'll get to in a moment, but as long as you're a new Sprint customer, the deal is very enticing. The service is not some limited version of Sprint's regular unlimited plan, either: up to five lines get Sprint's full unlimited package, which includes calls, texts and up to 23GB of high-speed 4G LTE (and unlimited data at slower speeds after that) just by switching over.
Sprint claims that customers bringing five lines over can save over $2000 in the first year if switching from Verizon.
Now here are the caveats:
- The offer is open to new customers only.
- After the first year, which technically ends July 31, 2018, service will cost $60 for the first line, $40 for the second, and $30 for each subsequent one.
- The offer is only open to customers bringing their own unlocked, eligible phones.
- These include devices like the Google Pixel, Nexus 6P, Moto G5 Plus, iPhone 7, and Galaxy S8. Check out the full list.
- You will have to buy SIM cards through Sprint for $2.99 each and activate them on the company's online portal.
Along with the unlimited calls, text and data, users get 10GB of hotspot data per line and HD video streaming at 1080p.
So while there are a few hoops to jump through, it's definitely worth pursuing for the insane level of savings. If Sprint has even decent LTE service in your area, you can't beat this kind of deal.
