Sprint announced the opportunity to lease two Samsung Galaxy S8 phones for the price of one with each new line activation. The promotion starts Friday, April 21 and goes through April 27. And with Sprint's Galaxy Forever program, customers can upgrade to the latest Galaxy any time after 12 lease payments are completed.
Sprint also touted the Galaxy S8 and S8+ as HPUE-enabled (High Performance User Equipment) smartphones. It's a fancy way of saying both phones will be fast on the carrier's 4G network. Sprint claims HPUE can extend existing 2.5GHz coverage by up to 30%, nearly matching its mid-band 1.9GHz spectrum performance.
Additionally, Sprit lets you enter the Sprint Amazing Sweepstakes4 through May 11 for a chance to win a $5,000 Samsung.com shopping spree, or one of 21 daily prizes.
One winner gets to buy pretty much every piece of consumer electronics available at Samsung.com and live the Samsung life in and out. And every day, another winner gets a Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit that includes a SmartThings Hub, two multipurpose sensors, a motion sensor, and an outlet – everything needed to monitor your home using your smartphone.
For more information, head to Sprint's website or go to a carrier store and ask around.
Sprint Launches Samsung Galaxy S8 with Two-for-One Offer; Available April 21
Only Sprint offers best price for Unlimited and Galaxy Forever with easy annual upgrades
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), April 20, 2017 - Only Sprint (NYSE: S) offers new and existing customers the option to lease two Samsung GS8 devices for the price of one – with a new line activation – starting Friday, April 21, through April 27. That is just $31.25/month for both devices.1 And with Galaxy Forever, exclusively from Sprint, customers can upgrade to the latest Galaxy device any time after 12 lease payments.
Sprint customers can pair their GS8 with the best price for Unlimited among national carriers – Verizon and AT&T Unlimited plans cost 50 percent more. With Unlimited Freedom2, new customers get:
Unlimited Data, Talk and Text for $50 per month for the first line. Two lines for $40/month per line. Four lines for $30/month per line. A fully featured unlimited plan that includes HD streaming for video, music and gaming, and 10GB/month per line of mobile hotspot data, providing convenience and extra value. Sprint’s Network Is Even Better
Samsung GS8 and GS8+ are both HPUE-enabled (High Performance User Equipment) smartphones. HPUE makes the Sprint network experience even better with increased coverage, more capacity and faster speeds on capable devices. HPUE-enabled smartphones are designed to give customers a better overall experience for watching streaming videos and enjoying mobile gaming and other online apps and services. HPUE can extend Sprint’s existing 2.5GHz coverage by up to 30 percent to nearly match its mid-band 1.9GHz spectrum performance, including indoors where the majority of wireless traffic is generated.3
“The launch of GS8 is an important milestone for both the Sprint network and the global HPUE ecosystem,” said John Saw, chief technology officer for Sprint. “With HPUE, our customers can expect even better coverage and faster data speeds, particularly indoors where HPUE can extend the reach of our 2.5GHz service. This is a tremendous innovation that makes GS8 an even more compelling choice for customers.”
HPUE is one of many tools Sprint is using to improve its network and take advantage of its deep 2.5GHz spectrum holdings. With an average of 204MHz of spectrum and more than 160MHz of 2.5GHz spectrum in the top 100 U.S. markets, Sprint has more spectrum than any other carrier across the nation, allowing Sprint to keep adding the capacity and speed needed to serve customers’ increasing demand for unlimited data.
Win Big with Sprint and Samsung
Through May 11, enter the Sprint Amazing Sweepstakes4 for your chance to win a $5,000 Samsung.com shopping spree or one of 21 daily prizes:
One winner will create their own Samsung dream package from a variety of products available at Samsung.com, including laptop computers, LED TVs, tablets and Samsung mobile phones and accessories. Each day, one winner will also be selected to win a Samsung SmartThings Home Monitoring Kit containing everything you need to monitor your home using your smartphone, including a SmartThings Hub, two multipurpose sensors, a motion sensor and an outlet (valued at $249).
But they aren't, Sprint takes the hit of giving away the free device but in return both the existing and new customer must remain on the sprint plan for 2 years or be liable for paying off the FRP of the device. It gets them a new line of service which makes them and their share holders happy.
had it been a Samsung promotion, like the Free Gear VR, then the BOGO would be available regardless of your carrier
Just an FYI - I was trying to claim one of my promotions at
www.samsungpromotions.com. However when I did it online, I kept gettign an error when you get to the point where you have to provide your IMEI# and WIFI MAC Address.
So I am suggesting a better and faster route.
If you download Samsung Shop from the Galaxy Apps store, you can sign in with your Samsung ID and claim your promo here.
This will be quicker. Just download a copy of your receipt from the carrier first as a PDF or JPG. If you have T-Mobile, there is one page in your EIP you can use which shows the phones cost and that you agreed to the EIP which also qualifies as a receipt.
Put the file on your phone, and you can just attach it to the promo and you wont have ot deal with the online registration error.
Samsung was over=whelmed with registrations for those who got early deliveries and we kept gettign kicked or the server wasn't excepting the registrations.
I opted for the premium $579 package for $99...you can't beat that deal!
Back on topic...very nice deal Sprint.
ATT is also offering BOGO on the S8 only if you sign up on ATT Next.
