Sprint announced today a new rewards program called "My Sprint Rewards." Similar to reward programs from T-Mobile and Verizon, Sprint subscribers will need to download an app to join. The My Sprint Rewards app is now available in the App Store and Google Play Store. Sprint will be offering its customers exclusive deals from companies such as theater chain AMC, wholesale membership retailer Sam's Club, shopping delivery service Shipt, and financial firm H&R Block. Customers can also receive Cash Back Rewards amounting to 3% to 20% of select purchases.
In fact, Sprint says that to celebrate the launch of the program, subscribers can use the My Sprint Rewards app today to order a free one topping pizza from Papa John’s (while supplies last). The app will also allow Sprint subscribers to enter a sweepstakes to win a trip for two at the St. James’s Club, Morgan Bay in St. Lucia.
"Without a doubt, you get the best value by being a Sprint customer with our better-than-ever network, money-saving Unlimited plans and this new rewards program. We are giving customers great perks – including free pizza and discounted movie tickets – on their own schedule. This is our way of saying thanks for being a Sprint customer. At Sprint, we deliver."-Dow Draper, chief commercial officer, Sprint
If you are a Sprint subscriber, simply install the app on your iOS
device. Enter the phone number that is attached to your Sprint account. You will receive a text message with a four-digit PIN. Enter that PIN number along with your name, email address and zip code. And that's it.
T-Mobile's proposed merger with Sprint is still awaiting FCC approval. With the U.S. government currently shutdown, the agency's review of the deal has been temporarily halted.
