Holiday Offers Fine Print
There is a bit of fine print to know that applies to the offers. Switcher and new line pricing is only available to customers once every 180 days. That means if you are with another carrier now, but had Cricket Wireless at any time in the past 180 days, you are not eligible for new-line and switcher promo pricing. Also, the offers are not available to customers wishing to port-in from AT&T.
All phones are sold locked to Cricket Wireless and remain locked until they have been used with the network for a period of 6-months. Some offers, like the iPhone SE deal, may require a valid ID if you are purchasing through a dealer.
If you are purchasing a 5G capable phone like a new iPhone 12 model, one thing to be aware of at this time is that you will only have access to the 5G network if you subscribe to Cricket's $60 unlimited plan. For all other plans, network access will be on the 4G LTE network. I suspect this limitation will change in the coming months, but that is the way it is right now.
Cricket also has some hidden deals running that are only available in-stores. YouTuber Lady Red's Tech Reviews went over those hidden deals and all the rest in a live stream this morning. You can watch a replay below to learn more about them such as an offer for the LG K92 5G for $199.99. The offer is available to both current customers looking to upgrade and switchers. The phone is currently available online for $349.99, so that's a pretty big discount.
Update 11/30/2020: Cricket is now offering the LG K92 for $149.99 online to switchers and the phone is available as a current customer upgrade option for $199.99.
