Cyber Monday is here and Cricket Wireless has some new deals out. The AT&T owned prepaid brand wants you to "save big on the Samsung Galaxy S10 and A10e." The firm Wave7 Research recently reported to its subscribers that Cricket's lead offers are for the Samsung Galaxy S10 priced at $399.99 and the Samsung A10e priced at $9.99 for new subscribers.

Cricket Wireless Samsung Galaxy S10 For $399.99 Offer Fine Print
The Samsung Galaxy S10 is regularly priced at $699.99.
This offer will be available until 1/9/20 and is an online-only deal for new customers. Current customers looking to upgrade their device, and customers wishing to port from AT&T or an AT&T MVNO are not eligible for the promotional pricing ( I tried to port from AT&T MVNO Good2Go Mobile for the offer and the discount was declined). Customers who were previously with Cricket Wireless within the past 90 days are also ineligible.
