Best Buy is currently offering $10/month off for 12 months on a Cricket Wireless unlimited plan with the purchase of an unlocked phone.  Also available, customers can save $10/month in bill credits with the purchase of two new Cricket Wireless Samsung Galaxy A10e's or Alcatel Onyx phones and activation on a plan priced $55 or higher.

Save $120 On Cricket Wireless Over 12 Months With Purchase Of Unlocked Phone - Offer Fine Print

To claim this offer, customers must purchase a Cricket Wireless BYOD SIM kit with a $55 or higher refill card and an unlocked phone.  This offer is available in-store only as it requires customers to activate their device in-store on a new Cricket Wireless account.  The deal is available to new lines of service only and is scheduled to be available until 5/2/2020.

Customers who qualify for the bill credits will receive $10/month off their Cricket Wireless unlimited data plan priced $55 or higher for a period of 12 months.  Bill credits begin to be applied 45 days after activation.  Cricket Wireless offers two unlimited plans that can be used to claim this offer and they are as follows:

$55/Month Unlimited Cricket Core Plan

This plan includes unlimited talk, text, and high-speed data with high-speed data considered to be speeds of 3Mbps.  Unlimited texting to over 35 countries and talk, text, and data usage while traveling in either Canada or Mexico is also included at no extra charge.  Taxes and fees are included in the price.  Mobile hotspot is not included.  Video streaming is limited to a resolution of 480p.  A $5/month autopay discount is available which lowers the price of the plan down to $50/month.  Multi-line discounts are also available with the following discounts:

  • 2 lines - $80
  • 3 lines - $90
  • 4 lines - $100
  • 5 lines - $125

$55/Month Unlimited Cricket More Plan

This plan includes unlimited talk, text, and 4G LTE data.  Data speeds may be temporarily slowed during times of heavy network congestion.  Unlimited texting to over 35 countries and talk, text, and data usage while traveling in either Canada or Mexico is also included at no extra charge.  Taxes and fees are included in the price.  15GB of mobile hotspot is included with the plan but can only be enabled on supported Cricket branded phones.  Video streaming is limited to a resolution of 480p.  A $5/month autopay discount is available which lowers the price of the plan down to $55/month.  Multi-line discounts are priced as follows:

  • 2 lines - $90
  • 3 lines - $110
  • 4 lines - $130
  • 5 lines - $160

According to a post on Reddit, the $10/month discount is stackable.  BestMVNO has not been able to independently verify the Reddit poster's claim.  The poster states that customers with multiple lines are able to save an additional $10/month per line off of the multi-line discounts shown.  As an example, customers with 2 lines will save an additional $20/month of their plans price dropping the plan above from $90/month down to $70/month, and customers with 3 lines will save an additional $30/month.

Save Up To $60 On Cricket Wireless In $10/Month Bill Credits With Purchase Of Select Cricket Phones - Offer Fine Print

This deal was spotted several days ago at a local Best Buy by Wave7 Research.  It may not be advertised at all locations, as reps at my local Best Buy were not aware of it when I visited one.  Reps did tell me though that they would be able to honor it for me if I was interested in it, and the offer is now showing online at Best Buy.  This deal is scheduled to be available until 4/4/2020.

In order to get this deal customers must pick up either two new Cricket Wireless Samsung A10e's ($79.99 ea) or Alcatel Onyx ($59.99 ea) phones with the purchase of a refill card priced $55 or higher and in-store activation of each new line on a plan priced $55 or higher.  Customers who qualify for the offer will then receive up to $60 in bill credits over the course of 8 months.

Typically to pick up a deal like the ones described in this article, customers porting from AT&T or an AT&T MVNO are not eligible for the offers, and I don't believe things will be any different here.
