The rules for getting the credit are unchanged. The customer must port into a Cricket plan priced at $40 or higher. There's no limit to the number lines a customer can port and the credit can be combined with Cricket's Group Save program, a family-style plan that offers discounts of $10 for 2nd line, $30 for 3 lines, $60 for 4 lines and $100 for five lines. With Group Save five lines on the Cricket $40 "Basic" plan cost $100/month or $20 per line. Individual users can get a $5/month discount for signing up for autopay. The auto pay discount is not available with Group Save.
There's no form to fill out to get the credit which is automatically applied to the users account approximately 5 days before the end of their first month of service. The account must be active to recieve the credit which can only be used to pay for Cricket service.
The Cricket plans that are available with the $100 Credit are:
|Plan Name||Monthly Price||Hi-Speed Data Before Throttling 1||Allowed devices|
|Basic||$40 ($35 with autopay)||1 GB||Any|
|Smart||$50 ($45 with autopay)||3 GB||Any|
|Pro||$60 ($55 with autopay)||10 GB||Any|
Plan prices include all taxes and fees, even sales taxes. However there's a $25 per line fee to activate in store, which includes a SIM. Online activation is free but SIMs are $10 online.
