In addition to running a massive fall sale
on decent low and mid-end phones like the Moto G7
Supra (aka G7 Power), LG Stylo 5
, Samsung Galaxy J2 Pure, Nokia 3.1
Plus, and Moto E5
Cruise, all of which can be had free of charge with an eligible port-in, Cricket Wireless is also offering a pretty stellar deal on the high-end LG V35 ThinQ
at the time of this writing.
For some reason, this particular promotion is not advertised quite as aggressively as the other ones, even though you can get a Snapdragon 845 powerhouse at a measly $149.99 until November 21. Cricket previously did the BOGO dance, charging $300 for two V35 units
, but obviously, this new special offer is even better, although you still you have to meet a few important conditions to qualify for it.
First and foremost, you need to bring an existing phone number to the AT&T-owned prepaid carrier. Otherwise, you're looking at paying a "whopping" $299.99. Said number cannot be tied to an AT&T account, while your new Cricket Wireless service line will have to be activated on a monthly plan of at least $55. That essentially means you have two very decent unlimited options, one setting you back precisely 55 bucks a month and another priced at $60 with 15GB mobile hotspot data included on top of basic unlimited amenities.
Your first month service charge, as well as various other taxes and fees, will need to be paid upfront, so technically, you won't be getting this bad boy for just 150 bucks. Still, we're talking about a blazing fast 6-inch handset
with a generous 6 gigs of RAM in tow, a beautiful OLED screen sporting razor-thin bezels, a versatile dual 16MP rear camera system, and a decent 3,300mAh battery, so even $300 felt like a more than reasonable price to pay for all that 2018 ultra-high-end excellence.
In case you're wondering, the same phone has recently gone back up to its $900 list price on Amazon in an unlocked Prime Exclusive variant while fetching $600 and up in an AT&T-specific model at Best Buy.
