Cricket also has new partnerships with Sam's Club.

iPhone Deals

Cricket's featured iPhone deal continues to be the iPhone SE 2020. The 64GB model is now available for free online to switchers with the stipulation that your first 3-months of service must be paid in advance when the phone gets purchased. Cricket is requiring customers to signup for its flagship $60 unlimited plan to take advantage of the offer. Alternatively, the phone can be purchased for $49.99 in stores with only one month of service due with the purchase. The 128GB model is still available online for just $99.99. Here are the rest of Cricket's iPhone deals.

Non-VoLTE Customer Upgrade Offers

In addition to the offers above, customers who have a Cricket device that is not VoLTE capable should start to receive text messages from Cricket with device upgrade offers. AT&T, which powers Cricket Wireless, is shutting down its 3G network early next year. Customers at that time who don't have a VoLTE capable phone will find that their phones no longer work on Cricket. A few upgrade offers for customers that will eventually be impacted by the shutdown include the following:

  • Samsung Galaxy A02s - $29.99
  • Samsung A12 - $59.99
  • Samsung A32 5G - $99.99

Cricket Has New Partnerships With Sam's Club

Cricket has also launched new partnerships with Sam's Club.

Customers that activate a new line on Cricket's $60 flagship unlimited plan or upgrade a line to that plan will get their first year of a Sam's Club membership for free. Sam's Club memberships regularly cost $45. Subscribers taking advantage of this offer will receive an email with a code to use and a link to redeem their membership. This offer is scheduled to be available at least until 1/6/2022.

Cricket Wireless's new partnerships with 3rd parties are not all that surprising. MVNOs, providers and carriers have been looking to diversify and differentiate themselves from their competition by offering special perks. For instance, Boost Mobile's flagship unlimited plan now includes K health telehealth services, Verizon Wireless plans include a combination of Apple Music, Google Play Pass, Discover Plus, Disney+, Hulu and ESPN+. Then there's US Mobile who offers multi-line subscribers a free subscription to Netflix or HBO Max among other possibilities. T-Mobile offers a free Netflix subscription and "T-Mobile Tuesdays" perks among other offers.
