Ting announced a new promotion today that will help mobile contract users go contract free. If you switch from a contract carrier to Ting and owe your old carrier an early termination fee (ETF), Ting will give you a credit equal to 25% of your ETF up to a maximum of $75 per line.
This isn't the first time Ting has done an ETF reimbursement promotion. For a short time in January, Ting was reimbursing 100% of ETFs for customers who switched to the service. That promotion was limited to a total of $100,000 in reimbursements. Unfortunately the deal was so popular that the whole $100K was gone in minutes. This time around, although the promotion is only 25% of the ETF, and capped at $75 per line, Ting says this is a permanent deal, not a limited promotion.
Here's what you have to do to get the ETF reimbursement:
- Activate a new device with Ting. It can be a new phone purchased from Ting, or from another source like Ebay or a Sprint phone that you already own.
- Port your old phone number to Ting.
- When you get your final bill from your old carrier showing your ETF amount, use a web form on the Ting site to upload a scanned copy or a readable photo or PDF of the final bill.
- Within two business days after you submit your documents, Ting will credit your account 25% of your ETF up to a maximum of $75 for each line that you move to Ting
