RingPlus has announced some promotional deals that it will be running at various times now through next week.
1: Fathers Day Promo
Promotion Dates: Friday, June 19, 2015, at 11:59PM PDT until Sunday, June 21, 2105, at 11:59PM PDT (or until we run out of phones).
This Father’s Day, buy your Dad a flip phone for just $19.99 from the RingPlus Phone Store at https://store.ringplus.net/, and get a $19.99 Top Up to your RingPlus account! We believe our partners have enough phones, but they may run out before the promotion ends, and we may have to close the promotion sooner. Please be sure to use your same email address in the RingPlus Phone Store that you use for your RingPlus account so we can give you your Top Up. This offer is only valid for current RingPlus Members with active lines. So, if you are not a RingPlus Member now, sign up!
2: Switch and Save Promo
Promotion Dates: Sunday, June 21, 2015, at 11:59PM PDT until Thursday, June 25, 2105, at 11:59PM PDT.
Switch to RingPlus and Save! Port-in any phone number from Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile (or one of their MVNOs) to RingPlus and get a $5 Top Up to your RingPlus account, plus no porting fee!
3: The Big $8 Gig Promo
Promotion Dates: Thursday, June 25, 2015, at 11:59PM PDT until Sunday, June 28, 2105, at 11:59PM PDT.
RingPlus is now offering its Big $8 Gig Promotion! For just $8 you can add 1GB of data to any RingPlus Plan, and it will auto renew on your account at the same rate until you opt out! Subject to the conditions below, this offer is available to any RingPlus Member whose account is active during the Promotion Dates. The 1GB add-on Members buy will be available for their use for the 30-day period beginning on the day they buy their 1GB, and then any unused data will expire.
Conditions: This offer is available only while supplies last, and is not available for hotspots, tablets, data-only devices, or cell phones used as data-primary devices.
These could be good deals overall. However there's a $25.42 charge for "standard UPS shipping" on the $19.99 flip phone which more than wipes out the $19.99 credit.
I'm not too keen about the restrictions on the Big $8 Gig promo which seem designed to make sure that most people don't actually use their Gigabyte of data. I wonder what the criteria is for deciding if a phone is being used as a "data-primary" device? I don't think I'm alone in spending far more time using the browser and data using apps on my phones than I do on calls or texting. Who actually needs a Gig a month if they don't use their phones primarily for data?
In other RingPlus news, the Free Plan is still available. It includes 200 minutes, 50 text messages, and 10 MB of LTE data per month for free. If you need more, it's 2¢ per minute, text or MB of data.
