MetroPCS brand, T-Mobile has launched a new promotion to attract more customers to make the switch to their prepaid wireless network.
Announced earlier today, T-Mobile's prepaid wireless business is attracting Sprint, Virgin Mobile or Boost Mobile users to port in their numbers to MetroPCS. In doing so, these users will be able to take advantage from 20% up to 50% off on Sprint's Family Share Pack pricing. The discount however, depends on the number of lines you decide to switch and by location since there are local taxes and fees to take into consideration.
In addition to the discount, users who decide to switch may get their hands on a free MetroPCS LTE smartphone worth $50. Or they can opt to go for a $50 rebate on another smartphone offered by the company. Those who add more than two lines can get a mail-in rebate instead of an instant rebate.
This promotion continues from the intense holiday season that led to US carriers be aggressive in pursuing customers from their competitors. During the holiday season, networks such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile all offered different discounts as a way of trying to outbeat each other. T-Mobile, however, has set its eyes on the customers of Sprint and really wants to do its best to win them over. During Black Friday, T-Mo offered $200 to Sprint users who would switch to their service along with a promotion to take care of early termination fees. After the busy holiday season, Verizon launched its own ETF payoff promotion.
Through its new promotion announced today, MetroPCS hopes it could do a better job of attracting and bringing in ex-Sprint users. They particularly address those who have regretted switching to Sprint by offering the discounts.
