Switch to Cricket and take $200 off the Galaxy S9, iPhone X, iPhone 8/8 Plus and others
Things started to change, and soon pre-paid operators started to carry phones that even the most phone naive person in the world had heard of. The latest iteration of the Apple iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy S handsets were soon offered by these companies. Sprint bought Virgin Mobile in 2009, T-Mobile bought MetroPCS in 2013, and AT&T picked up Cricket the very next year. Each deal brought a little more respectability for pre-paid wireless service providers.
Now, it is AT&T owned Cricket that is offering you a deal on its best handsets. To receive the discount, you have to port over your current number, and subscribe to a qualified plan ($30 a month and up). That allows you to take $200 off top-shelf models from Apple and Samsung. One month's service and sales tax are due at the time of sale. This deal is available online only. The phones available include:
- Samsung Galaxy S9-$499.99 with number transfer.
- Apple iPhone 7 32GB-$349.99 with number transfer.
- Apple iPhone 7 Plus 32GB-$469.99 with number transfer.
- Apple iPhone 8 64GB-$499.99 with number transfer.
- Apple iPhone 8 256GB-$649.99 with number transfer.
- Apple iPhone 8 Plus 64GB-$599.99 with number transfer.
- Apple iPhone 8 Plus 256GB-$749.99 with number transfer.
- Apple iPhone X 64GB-$799.99 with number transfer.
- Apple iPhone X 256GB-$949.99 with number transfer.
Cricket also has some handsets that are free if you port over your existing number. Keep in mind that your phone is shipped for free, and will arrive the next business day. You must stay on Cricket for 6 months after activating the new line. For more information, click on the sourcelink below.
