None of the phones being offered as part of the promotion are high end, however, they are only $19 so that is a good deal. For a high end phone, Cricket's half off a Galaxy S8 promo is really a steal.

To get a phone for $19 from Cricket Wireless you must activate it on a plan costing $30 or more, and you can't be porting from AT&T.

In addition to the phone discounts, Cricket Wireless continues to run other promotions. For instance, new customers can subscribe to Cricket Wireless's unlimited data 2 plan for just $40/month with auto pay.  That's a savings of $10/month off its regular price.

Unfortunately, current customers get left out in the cold as part of this "celebration."
