The smallest of the Big Four carriers in the U.S., Sprint is hoping for a successful merger with T-Mobile. Until that happens, there are various Sprint deals the company puts out in hopes of getting new subscribers on board and narrowing the gap with Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile. Let’s take a look at the best Sprint deals and see which one might be best for you.
Best Sprint deals:
Editor’s note: We will be updating this list of the best Sprint offers regularly as new deals are announced.
1. Let Sprint cover your switching costs
Stuck with another carrier? Sprint makes switching more cost effective by covering your moving costs through their “Clean Slate” program. The carrier will reimburse up to $650 per line. Only early termination fees and phone balances are eligible for reimbursement, but that is plenty of help.
All you must do is switch your number to Sprint’s network and trade in your previous phone. After your previous carrier’s final bill arrives, just register online within 60 days of joining Sprint. Sprint will then send you a prepaid card with the amount of your switching costs, less the trade-in value of your old phone. The process should take anywhere between six to eight weeks.
2. Get three lines for free with Unlimited Basic
Sign up for Sprint’s Unlimited Basic plan and you’ll get three lines for free. This deal only works if you need five lines, though. Only the third, fourth, and fifth lines will be free, effectively bringing the price down to $20 per line, for five lines.
There is a catch! You will only pay $100 for five lines until June 30, 2020. After this date, subscribers will need to pay an additional $20 per line, for the third, fourth, and fifth lines. Unlimited Basic offers unlimited talk, text, and 4G LTE data, 500MB of LTE mobile hotspot, 480p video streaming, and a Hulu subscription. The plan also includes unlimited talk and text, along with 5GB of LTE data while roaming in Canada and Mexico.
3. Unlimited Kickstart – $25 per month
Another great Sprint deal makes it easier to switch to the carrier by offering one of the most affordable unlimited plans around. The Unlimited Kickstart plan costs only $25 a month, but it comes with its caveats.
For starters, the plan requires bringing your own phone or buying one outright. If you go for the latter, you might be eligible for a $100 prepaid MasterCard. You will also need to sign up for AutoPay.
Unlimited calls, texts, and data are included, but you get less extras. There’s no data sharing and unlimited data streaming is also limited to 480p, for example. There are better plans out there, but it’s hard to complain when you are paying $25 a month and get unlimited services.
4. 50 percent off the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus
The phones are barely out, but the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus are already available for half off if you sign up for Sprint’s 18-month Flex leasing program. That means you can get the Galaxy Note 10 for $19.79 a month and the Galaxy Note 10 Plus for $26.04 a month. The discount will be applied as monthly credit.
Even better, the 512GB version of the Galaxy Note 10 Plus has the same discounted monthly price. The only difference is the $100 you’ll have to pay upfront. Also included in the deal are up to $150 in Samsung rewards when you pre-order and Sprint’s Galaxy Forever upgrade program. With the program, you can return and upgrade to the latest Samsung Galaxy flagship after 12 lease payments.
5. Samsung Galaxy S10 for free
Free phones are always a treat, especially when they are as nice as the Samsung Galaxy S10. If you jump on this deal, you can walk out with a Samsung Galaxy S10 for free on an 18-month lease. Similarly to the other smartphone deals, the discount will come in the form of a monthly bill credit.
6. Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus for $15 a month
We know Samsung is a popular one, so many of you won’t miss the chance to lease a Samsung Galaxy S10 Plus for just $15 a month. That’s $26.67 less per month than the regular lease price. Again, the phone must be activated on a new line and the discount will be in the form of a monthly credit to your account.
7. Get $250-$300 off Pixel 3 lineup
The Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL continue to offer a great experience nearly a year after their release. Timely updates, great specs, and impressive camera capabilities make them good choices, especially when you can save $250-$300 on them with Sprint.
The carrier is currently offering the Google Pixel 3 for $17.32 a month on an 18-month lease. That amounts to a $250 discount. Meanwhile, you can get the Google Pixel 3 XL for $22.04 a month on an 18-month lease. That is a $300 discount.
8. LG V50 ThinQ for $19 a month
The LG V50 ThinQ is Sprint’s first 5G phone, which means it can offer amazing data speeds if you are lucky enough to be in one of the carrier’s 5G markets. It’s an expensive device at $999.99, but you can get it for just $19 a month on an 18-month lease. That is a pretty good discount considering the regular price is $41.67 a month.
These are the best Sprint deals currently on offer, in our opinion. But there are a few others available. Have we missed any major ones? Let us know in the comments.
