Cricket Wireless has just launched another promotion. Those who switch to the ATT owned MVNO can now get a brand new Samsung Galaxy S8 for 50% off, or $349.99. Current customers get left out in the cold, as the same phone will cost them $699.99 to upgrade to plus an additional $25 upgrade fee. Ouch! New customers may want to get this phone to pair with Cricket's switcher unlimited 2 data plan which includes unlimited talk, text and data for $40/month.
Samsung Galaxy S8 Promotional Pricing And Fine Print
This special offer will be available until 3/29/18. It requires a port in and activation of a qualifying service plan. Those porting in from AT&T are excluded from the promotional pricing. Qualifying plans include the following:
- $30/month - unlimited everything, with the first 2GB of data at high speeds
- $40/month ($35 with auto pay billing) - unlimited everything, with the first 5GB of data at high speeds
- $40/month for 12 months (regular price $55)- unlimited 2 data plan for new customers only - includes unlimited talk, text and data. Data speeds limited to 3 Mbps and video streaming 1.5 Mbps or about a resolution of 480p. Once more than 22GB of data has been consumed in a month, speeds may be temporarily slowed down during times of heavy network traffic. Talk text and data usage available while traveling in Mexico and Canada. Includes global texting.
- $60/month ($55 with autopay) - includes unlimited talk, text and data. Once more than 22GB of data has been consumed in a month, speeds may be temporarily slowed down during times of heavy network traffic. Talk text and data usage available while traveling in Mexico and Canada. Includes global texting.
Except where noted, all of Cricket Wireless's plans include data that is limited to a maximum download speed of 8 Mbps with a 4G LTE device, or 4 Mbps using HSPA+. Upload speeds are not throttled.
If you purchase the phone, it must be used with Cricket Wireless for at least 6 months before it can be unlocked. Purchasing the device in store and activating it will cost an additional $25. Purchasing and activating online will save you that fee. Online purchases come with free next day business shipping.
This is the cheapest price that I'm currently aware of where you can outright buy a Samsung Galaxy S8. Cricket Wireless is competitively priced compared to other ATT MVNO's. So if you want to take advantage of this limited time offer, head on over to Cricket Wireless while you still can.
