Several months after T-Mobile and AT&T started offering to pay potential customers when they switched over from a competing carrier, Sprint is getting in on the game with a $650 offer of its own. Like AT&T’s offer this promotion is only available for a limited time, while T-Mobile will still happily pay off your switching fees when you jump ship from a competing carrier.
Sprint’s deal breaks down similarly to what we’ve seen before. You have to use one of its Framily Plans, which means either joining an existing group or starting a new one. In return, Sprint will give you $300 in credit for your current smartphone and a prepaid Visa card worth up to $350 to cover any cancellation fees from your old carrier. The deal kicks off today and runs through May 8.
Sprint’s Framily Plan lets you clump up to 10 phone lines together to save money while still receiving separate bills. A single line from the carrier runs $55 per month, but you can cut that fee by up to $30 by adding people to your plan at a $5 discount per member. By offering to pay off switching fees Sprint may be able to bring more customers onto its network — but will it work?
