Cricket Recruiting T-Mobile, Metro PCS Customers


A day after T-Mobile started it’s referral program, trying to lure Sprint, AT&T and Verizon customers to their Simple Choice plan, AT&T’s Cricket has a counter offer. On Friday, Cricket announced that T-Mobile and Metro PCS customers who switched to Cricket could qualify for a $100 bill credit for each line transferred–or about two month’s service, depending on what plan you choose. The offer is valid until Oct. 19.

Of course, there are a few catches to the promotion. The credit is only available to T-Mobile and Metro PCS customers and new customers must purchase and activate a new line of service on a Basic, Smart or Pro rate plan. The credit will generally be issued to the customer’s account around five days before the end of the initial service period. There is no limit to the number of lines that can qualify for this offer.

Cricket currently has three plans that qualify for the credit. All three have unlimited talk and text, and all taxes and fees are already included. Once the data allotment for high-speed is exceeded, the data is throttled.

  • Basic – $40 – 500 MB high-speed data
  • Smart – $50 – 2.5 GB high-speed data
  • Pro – $60 – 5 GB high-speed data

Customers can save an additional $5 on any of the above plans by enrolling in Autopay, and additional lines added to each account also receive discounts.
