Sprint is working on getting an upper hand on other US carriers and it launches a plan that will steal lots and lots of customers from others and bring them to Sprint! Instead of continuing its quarrel with T Mobile, it is setting its eyes on AT&T and Verizon Wireless and, starting December 5th, it is offering to cut down customers’ previous wireless bills in half. This means that, if your old carrier was charging your wireless bill $100 a month, print would cut your contract to $50 if you port to them.
Sprint is paying up to $350 to buy your existing contract from another carrier, and it will match your previous data allowance too! In order to get started, all you have to do is head over to sprint.com/halfprice starting this Friday and upload a copy of your current bill. You can also bring a copy of your bill with your existing phone to a Sprint store, where a store representative will select the service plan that corresponds best to your existing data plan. Now comes the bad part of this seemingly perfect deal: you will be getting a new phone that you will have to pay for upfront or through a leasing plan because Sprint is not going EVERYTHING for you.
Below you can see the actual Sprint press release:
Sprint’s Offer: Cut Your Wireless Bill in Half Event
Offer to Verizon and AT&T customers – bring your wireless bill to Sprint and we’ll cut your rate plan in half
Plus – Sprint will buy out your contract up to $350 per line
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), December 02, 2014 – In an unprecedented move, Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced it will cut in half the monthly rate plan for Verizon and AT&T customers who switch to Sprint beginning Friday, Dec. 5. With the Cut Your Bill in Half Event, Sprint will provide unlimited talk and text to anywhere in the U.S. while on the Sprint network – regardless of a customer’s current plan – and match the customer’s data allowance for half the cost they are currently paying for their monthly rate plan.
“The Cut Your Bill in Half Event clearly demonstrates that Sprint delivers the best value in wireless,” said Marcelo Claure, CEO, Sprint. “It’s as simple as this: Bring Sprint your Verizon or AT&T bill along with your phone and we’ll cut your rate plan in half. That’s a 50 percent savings on your rate plan every month. And this great deal is not just a promotion. This will be the customer’s ongoing price.”
Beginning Friday, Dec. 5, Verizon and AT&T customers switching to Sprint need to follow these simple steps to take advantage of this limited-time offer:
- Visit sprint.com/halfprice to upload a copy of your current bill.
- Bring a copy of your latest bill and all of the phones on your Verizon or AT&T account to turn in to your Sprint store.
- A Sprint representative will select the service plan that most closely matches the data allowance in your current monthly rate plan.
- Get your new phone with one of our leasing options, Sprint Easy Pay(SM) installment billing, or pay full retail price for the device.
Customers also may take advantage of the Cut Your Bill in Half Event via Sprint.com. For more information visit www.sprint.com/halfprice.
Additionally through this offer, Verizon and AT&T customers on a contract are eligible to save even more. Sprint will pay up to $350 per line via a Visa® Prepaid Card for their early termination fee or installment bill balance when they switch. Once a customer has received the final bill from the other carrier, he or she may simply register for the Visa Prepaid Card at sprint.com/jointoday.
The half-off rate from Sprint will be based on the monthly voice, text and data rate plan charge for all lines on the customer’s Verizon or AT&T bill. For example, Verizon customers paying $140/month for four lines of service to share can get four lines of service from Sprint for $70/month. Customers are entitled to the half-off rate as long as they remain on the plan.
The Sprint 4G LTE network serves more than 540 cities, making it easy for customers to enjoy data on their devices.
