Expired Sprint's Boost Mobile is running a new promotion that gives customers who port their phone number to Boost double the normal amount of high speed data and a free LTE phone.
The offer is available now through
7/5/15 7/21/15 at participating Boost dealers. To qualify the customer must:
- Port a number from an operator or MVNO that doesn't use the Sprint network
- Activate their ported number on the Boost Mobile Data Boost $45 or $50 plan and pay for the first month of service along with any required taxes.
- Do the port in and activation at a participating Boost Mobile dealer, not online or a national retailer like Target or BestBuy.
Customers who meet the requirements and activate on the $45 plan will get 10 GB of high speed data per month instead of the usual 5 GB. $55 plan customers will get $20 GB of high speed data instead of 10 GB.
After the promo ends customers get to keep the increased data as long as they do not switch to an ineligible device, change plans or cancel their service. Both plans also include unlimited voice minutes and unlimited text and picture messaging.
Customers who qualify for double data are also eligible for a $100 credit toward the purchase of certain LTE phones. The credit covers the full price of the LG Tribute, Nokia Lumina 635, Moto E LTE, ZTE Speed or LG Volt or it can be used to take $100 off the price of the ZTE Warp Sync, Boost MAX, Apple iPhone 5c CPO, or Apple iPhone 5s CPO. The $100 credit promotion ends May 31.
Not all dealers are participating in the double data and $100 port in credit offers, so I recommend calling first to see if the promotions are available. You can use the Boost Mobile dealer locater to find nearby dealers. Check the Customer Support button on the locater form to exclude top-up only and national retailer locations and show only Boost dealers.
In other Boost news, the $35 Data Boost Up promotional plan which provided 2.5 GB of data instead of the usual 1 GB for customers enrolling in auto pay has was discontinued May 5 and is no longer available to new customers. The $30 Data Boost Up plan with unlimited talk and messaging and 2 GB of high speed data is still available to auto pay customers, but that promotion is scheduled to end
Update May 30: The $30 Data Boost Up promotion that was scheduled to end May 31 has been extended until June 30.
Update June 30: The Double Data promotion for customers switching from a non-Sprint based carrier has been extended until July 21. The window for activating the $30/month 2 GB Data Boost promotional plan for customers using autopay has been extended until July 31.
