Cricket Wireless Holiday Promotions

This November, Cricket introduced its holiday promotions for the year. “The merrier carrier” is offering new customers two smartphones for free, and two at a discounted rates when they activate on Cricket’s services. 

This is a limited time offer— while supplies last, so its unclear when it will end, and the offer does not include ports from AT&T. Other than that, you would just need to stay on Cricket’s service for 30 days after paying for the first month up front, otherwise there will be a $25 restocking fee for your device.

Here are the 4 holiday smartphone deals:

  • LG Spree — Free
  • Samsung Galaxy Amp 2 — Free
  • LG Escape 3 — $19.99
  • Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime — $49.99

Cricket has a number of other phones available for purchase, some are basic phones but most are smartphones. In fact, Cricket pretty much always has specials on its phones— a number of phones are listed as free for customers who port in their own number, not as a holiday special, including the Microsoft Lumia 650. You can view Cricket’s full lineup of phones here, or bring your unlocked GSM device in for activation— SIM cards are available for purchase at $9.99.

Cricket has plans starting at $30 a month, taxes and fees included, working up to $70 a month ($65 with autopay). All plans include unlimited talk, text, and data, though the data is tethered to 2G speeds after your allotment is used.

Cricket operates on AT&T’s network, and is ultimately pretty respected among MVNO’s. You can view full coverage here.
