Today Sprint announced a slew of perks and other benefits it will extend to its best customers. In order to be eligible for Sprint Premiere, you need to have been a customer for 10 years, or be on an individual wireless plan of at least $70 per month or spend at least $100 per month on a plan that shares minutes for three consecutive months. For this, Premiere will provide early upgrades, special offers such as trips, anniversary rewards, exclusive sneak peaks at upcoming products, accessory discounts, and tools to make sure they are on the best plan for their needs. Sprint says the program is meant to reward its most loyal customers.

Doesn't Every Other Carrier Already Do This? (nt)

Sprint may be just announcing this, but it's been around for over a year. Sprint's a little behind on the advertising game.

Premier For Everyone


For people on old plans, they have to be with Sprint for 10 years... or...

Sign up for the Individual Simply Everything or Simply Data plans starting at $69.99 (which is eligible) or any of the Simply Family plans that start at like what, $120 and your in after 3 months?

3 Months Vs 10 Years! OMG

By the way, I was eligible for an upgrade IMMEDIATELY after I bought my phone from them, even after I already upgraded to another phone I was STILL eligible - so something is wrong with Sprint billing, and its in my favor this time!

As for the monthly perks - its the ALREADY FREE FOR EVERYONE content on Digital Lounge (dont let them fool you into thinking the crap is free only for you), and the "trips" are discounts for trips ...
I had to change my number a few months ago. Before I changed it, I was listed as a "premier" customer. When I changed my number, the "premier" label was gone from my online Sprint account. I'm on a 2-line basic family plan,$69.95 a month, I believe...
I've been a sprint customer since 1999!!! I've always been in good standing BUT I'm not a premier customer WTH...I've been waiting to upgrade, but still have another year to get full benefit. They say since my plan is not high enough, I do not qualify...
You must meet 1 of 3 qualifications:
1. Individual Rate Plan: $69.99 MRC or higher
2. Shared Rate Plan: $129.99 MRC or higher

You must have 6 months of service with Sprint.
A 3 month avg. meeting the Ind...
All i know is all hell is about to break lose now that word of this has gotten out...welcome back to ridiculously long hold times everyone. Confused
BTW this program is not even close to being new. It's actually been in place for the last year and a half at least. Sprint's had a great customer service plan for the last 2 years. Problem is none of the customers knew about it. I say what I've ...

Interesting they just released a press statement

I have been receiving "Sprint Premier" literature for a few months now. They sent me a very intricate and expensive looking pamphlet about three months ago explaining the benefits. It also had coupons for big discounts on accessories.

I've been a Sprint customer since 1999.

im really excited about sprint really stepping up to be one of the top carriers againg. not to be a fan boy. currently alltel. plus the palm pre coming.

just really happy they are going to make the switch easy. but unhappy of the loss of mycircle Sad
You wont loose My Circle.

Verizon is more then likely going to keep it for Verizon customers as well, but Alltel customer will still have My Circle.
