Sprint: Families That Switch Get $400 Credit
Sprint has launched a new campaign that will reward families for abandoning their existing carrier. The program, which can be taken advantage of until the end of February, is only available in Sprint stores and will provide a credit of up to $400 for the purchase of new phones and/or equipment and initiation of service. At least three lines must be ported from a non-Sprint owned competing carrier in order to receive the full $400 credit. The offer requires all new lines to sign a two-year agreement with one of its Simply Everything plans. Sprint has offered similar programs in the past. Consumer Cellular recently launched its own $300 credit program for new customers who break their contract to switch over.
