Best Buy is currently running a promotion on Cricket Wireless SIM cards and airtime cards.
Best Buy has put Cricket Wireless SIM cards on sale at a cost of 99¢ each. Those that purchase a SIM card are eligible to also purchase an airtime card for 20% off, making this a great deal for those looking for service on Cricket Wireless or even those who want to refill their Cricket Wireless account on the cheap. Savvy buyers will find it worthy to buy a SIM card whether they need one or not to save a few dollars on their phone bill.
Cricket Wireless regularly charges $9.99 for a SIM card and their cell phone plans are priced as follows:
All plans include unlimited talk and text
- $30 Starter - 1 GB of high speed data
- $40 Basic ($35 with autopay) - 4 GB of high speed data
- $50 Smart ($45 with autopay) - 8 GB of high speed data + international texting and free roaming while in Mexico and Canada
- $60 Unlimited ($55 with autopay) - unlimited high speed data + international texting and free roaming while in Mexico and Canada
Pricing Of Airtime Cards With 20% Off
- $24 for $30 airtime card
- $32 for $40 airtime card
- $40 for $50 airtime card
- $48 for $60 airtime card
So, depending on which plan you have, and what your sales tax rate is, you could be inline for some nice savings on your Cricket Wireless bill next month. Just note that Cricket says your airtime refill cards must be used in full, so you cannot buy a $60 airtime card to use with the $40 plan this month and have money leftover to use on your bill the following month.

After researching how to cut costs on his phone bill, he came across the terms 'MVNO' and 'prepaid wireless', and learned there was a way he could keep using his favorite network without having to pay a premium price for it. Since then, through BestMVNO.com, Joe has been sharing his research about MVNOs and prepaid wireless so that others can learn how to save money on their own phone bills.
