Both Black Friday and Cyber Monday may have ended already but that does not mean you can't save money on your next smartphone purchase. If you've been meaning to switch to Cricket Wireless for some time now, you'll be excited to know that the no-contract carrier has just announced an iPhone deal.
Starting today, you can now purchase older iPhone 5c and 5s models at a marked down price. The iPhone 5c is now available for only $179.99 (16GB) and $229.99 (32GB) while the iPhone 5s is priced at $199.99 (16GB) and $249.99 ($32GB).
Apart from these iPhone models, Cricket Wireless also has a number of Android and Windows Phone devices for free. If you decide to switch to Cricket and port a number over, you can take your pick of one of these devices for free: the Motorola Moto E, Nokia Lumia 635, ZTE Overture 2, or the LG Risio.
Once you've decided to make the switch, you will need to pay the sale price of the phone upfront but you'll get a Visa gift card for the amount later on. So if you decide to go with the Moto E, you'll need to pay $50 upfront and a $50 Visa gift card will be sent to you in eight weeks. However, you do have to sign up for at least the $40 monthly plan. In order to receive the gift card, you will have to make your second service payment in 45 days. The new prices for these four smartphones after their discount range from $10 (ZTE Sonta 2), $30 (Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime), and $50 (Moto E and LG G Stylo).
Cricket Wireless offers different monthly plans specific to your preference. First up, there's the Basic plan; which comes with a $40 monthly charge and includes 2.5GB of high-speed data. Another option is the Smart plan, which includes 5GB of high-speed data for a monthly fee of $50. Lastly, the Pro plan includes 10GB of high-speed data for a monthly fee of $60. Each plan comes with unlimited calls and texts.
This new promotion is not available to AT&T customers since Cricket is a wholly owned subsidiary of AT&T. If you're interested in any of these smartphone models, you can make the switch and take advantage of the deals until January 7, 2016 or until supplies last.
