Sprint's Boost Mobile launched some new dealer-only promotions this week. With one exception, a new referal program, these deals are only available at Boost Authorized dealers, not online or at national retailers like Best Buy, Walmart or Target. In addition, not all offers are available in all markets and not all Boost dealers participate in all promotions. To avoid disappointment, call your dealer and ask them if they are honoring the promotion you are interested in and if they are any additional costs involved such as activation fees.
Here are the new offers:
U Pay 1, We Pay 1: The best promotion is also the one that's hardest to take advantage of. Called the "U Pay 1, We Pay 1" promotion it essentially gives you half price service. To qualify you have to supply a Verizon, T-Mobile or AT&T iPhone and activate it on a Boost's $50/month unlimited single line plan. Every other month, for the life of the phone, Boost will give you a $50 credit to cover the next month's service. Only the following iPhones are eligible for this offer: Verizon, AT&T or T-Mobile iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6s or 6s Plus; Verizon only iPhone 5s, 5c, SE, 7 or 7 Plus. The same phones from Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile MVNOs are also eligible. The U Pay 1, We Pay One offer is available until June 1 in all markets.
Free Phones for Port-Ins: Port a number from a non-Sprint based carrier, which hasn't been active on the Sprint network for at least 90 days and activate it on the Boost $50 plan and get a free phone. Eligible phones, subject to availability are: Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge, LG X Power, ZTE Prestige 2, LG Tribute HD, Kyocera Hydro Reach, Alcatel Dawn or LG K3. Customers can receive up to five free phones, if they port five numbers. Available until June 1, 2017 in all markets.
Add A Line Promotion: add a new line of service to an existing Boost account and get the first month of service for free. Limited to a maximum of five total lines per account. Available until June 1 in all markets:
New Referral Program: Boost customers can now defer friends and family at refer.boostmobile.com. Referrer and referee will each receive a $25 account credit within 30 days. Limited to a total of $500 in referrals per year for each customer.
The latest Sprint iPhones are now eligible for BYOSP: The following iPhones have been added to the list of Sprint phones that can be activated on Boost: iPhone SE, 6s, 6s Plus, 7 and 7s Plus.
