Get a Windows Phone 8.1 handset for free during Cricket's "Back to School" sale
AT&T owned Cricket Wireless, is starting its Back to School sale starting Friday. Imagine scoring a free Windows Phone 8.1 powered handset, featuring personal assistant Cortana. After a $50 mail-in rebate, you can get a free Nokia Lumia 630. This entry-level model comes right out of the box with the latest build of Microsoft's mobile OS.

The Motorola Moto G, usually $149.99, is just $49.99 following a $50 mail-in rebate and a $50 new-activation discount. Also $49.99 is the Nokia Lumia 520. This is the most popular Windows Phone model of all time, and will receive Windows Phone 8.1 via an update. The $49.99 price includes a $30 new activation discount.

Other highlights include the Samsung Galaxy Express, which offers 4G LTE connectivity, for $149.99. Normally priced at $249.99, Cricket will give you a $50 activation discount and a $50 mail-in rebate. And for those who need more real estate, there is the Nokia Lumia 1320. This 6 incher offers 4G LTE connectivity. Not as well-spec'd as the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet, the Lumia 1320 costs $179.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a $50 new activation discount.

Check out the rest of the phones on sale below. Cricket has over 3000 locations from coast to coast, and unlimited service is priced as low as $35 a month, after a $5 credit for using the Auto Pay feature. With the Cricket Rewards program, customers can receive a new smartphone every year.

I am surprised the aging Samsung Galaxy Express is still hugely overpriced! The Moto G outperforms it all around. The G has better sound, takes better photos, newer version of android, Runs faster with quad core, better screen, and no bloatware!. Now I am using the Moto G LTE on Cricket & it is fantastic. I would consider snagging a 630 had they at least included a flash for the camera. That was a big fail on Nokia's part. As that should be standard.

When you say it like that, it almost sounds bad. Perhaps, Excellent deal, or something.

I just read my comment again, and I think you're right. No more using the word "ridiculous".
