It’s almost as if mobile carriers are throwing money at people to switch carriers these days. The latest overtures are from Sprint
, which is offering up to $650 in incentives
for those who switch their numbers from a competitor with the Framily
“For a limited time, new customers who bring their number to Sprint can receive up to $300 in credit for their current phone through Sprint Buyback and a Visa Prepaid Card worth up to $350 to cover switching fees”, reads the announcement.
Customers will get a chunk of cash for trading in their current phone right away (and Sprint hopes you’ll maybe snap up a Samsung Galaxy S5
while you’re at it), and after 10-12 weeks, you’ll get that prepaid Visa card to cover up to $350 in early termination fees or equipment installment balances.
The deal counts for both new and current customers who switch a number to Sprint. The Framily Switching Bonus is no doubt a good deal for some, but act fast--the promotion ends on May 8th.
