iPhone SE 2020 $49.99 Offer Details
Boost Mobile has been running a deal on the iPhone SE for months with frequent changes in the phone's price. The latest offer is again for switchers and requires porting into Boost's $60 unlimited plan with 35GB of high-speed data. Those porting from a Sprint-related carrier are not eligible for the promotion.
Boost Mobile is advertising the iPhone SE as a $49.99 deal, but technically that's misleading. Customers must pay $99.99 for the phone, and after 3-months of service and payments, they'll receive a $50 virtual prepaid card. So that's not exactly a $49.99 iPhone SE, it's a $99.99 iPhone SE with a $50 prepaid card.
This offer is scheduled to be available at least until 3/29/21. There is a limit of one device allowed per line. The offer is not valid in RI, CT, or Miami-Dade.
Free Month Of Service For BYOD Customers
The other big in-store only promo is for a free month of service for bring your own device customers. It too is scheduled to be available through at least 3/29/21.
This offer is available to both new customers and those porting into a single line or a primary line on a family plan. The free month will come in the form of a one-time credit after the customer pays for their first month of service. This seems to be a replacement for Boost's double data offer for new customers that ran from September of 2020 up until just a few weeks ago.

"Boost's tax season set of promotions is not much different from what was offered in January, except that the LG Stylo 6 is now free for switchers and the switcher price of the iPhone SE has been cut in half to $49.99. The offer of six months of unlimited with advance payment of $240 has fallen flat, as urban prepaid customers are leery of large payments in advance." --Jeff Moore, Principal of Wave7 Research
