Check out Cricket's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals
What's that "cheap, cheap" sound you hear? It actually is the "chirp, chirp" sound of Cricket Wireless as it promotes its Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. The pre-paid carrier is offering a free HTC Dot View case this Friday, with the purchase of the HTC Desire 510. The latter is actually free after the buyer receives a $75 Cricket Visa Promotion Card. The deal is available at Cricket stores, and at Game Stop. The promo is valued at $34.95.
Also on Black Friday, Cricket will have the Nokia Lumia 1320 priced at $99.99. That is a $100 savings. The phablet comes with a 6-inch glass with resolution of 720 x 1280. That works out to a resolution of 245ppi. A dual-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 CPU is under the hood with the Adreno 305 GPU handling graphics. 1GB of RAM is inside with 8GB of native storage. A 64GB capacity microSD slot is available. With the large screen, a 3400mAh battery is necessary to keep the lights on. A 5MP camera is on back while a .3MP one appears on the front of the phone.

For Cyber Monday, Cricket is offering a 50% discount on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. The deal is available from Cricket's online store on December 1st. The Galaxy S4 is currently priced at $429.99. The Galaxy S5 is $589.99 at the moment.

Up through December 31st, move to Cricket from T-Mobile, Metro PCS, Sprint, Boost Mobile, Virgin Mobile and Cincinnati Bell, and receive a $100 Switcher credit.

Good luck finding a cricket store, at least for me!

when I visited Colorado they were literally everywhere, I probably saw close to 10 Cricket stores around the Denver/Pueblo/Colorado Springs area, more than any other carrier stores. Could just be a coincidence though, LOL.

Oh Cricket you're tempting me! I do have a weird bit though, why is the switcher credit not including Verizon? The other carriers make sense since they are AT&T competitors, but I wonder why they exclusive verizon customers.

Strange world indeed. Prepaid carriers are starting subsidizing phones and postpaid once are going for full price.

Since when did a sport become a carrier? How many runs did Nokia score, was it a one day match?

do you know if they are unlocked automatically or if you must request it?

You must request it after 6 on time payments of service through cricket.

I want to give the 1320 Windows phone a try. I primarily use my phone for calling, texting, emails, and web browsing now since I'm getting older. I just can't get over the fact that I won't be able to use Google Drive... It works so damn well... and the limited apps for banking. I hope Windows steps up their game and it's too bad they're not even allowed to use "Some" of the most basic apps like Youtube. Which I find stupid as hell since even the Xbox One has the app.

That's Google being stupid for you. They whore their apps to Apple even though they are a much more significant competitor, WP is barely a blip but they don't want to support them at all.

I would think it's more Microsoft wanting to use their own apps. For example "Bing". Considering all of the trash talk they do for their advertizing.
