Hey everyone I wanted to bring this up because I haven't seen this being discussed anywhere else. Feel free to merge this with another topic if needed.

 

So basically I noticed when I logged onto my sprint.com account today that clicking on my "contract details" I was offered to extend for 1 year and receive an $80 credit for each line on my ED1500 plan. It looks to be a loyalty perk of some sort, and I haven't seen this mentioned anywhere.

 

I haven't signed up for the credit yet because I'm afraid it might affect my upgrade eligibility, since we are all almost due for new phones. If it doesn't impact it, this seems like a hell of a deal they are offering current customers!

So is the deal they give you $80 to not get a new phone? or is it just open ended?

I'm not sure honestly. I skimmed through the terms and conditions and I don't believe it mentioned anything about upgrade eligibility. I hope it is open ended, that would be fantastic. If it is, we would be able to get a $400 dollar credit and 5 discounted phones when all is said and done.

That's outstanding! Hopefully this is the loyalty program for sticking it out during the rip & replace headaches.

I cant speak to this specific situation but contract date and upgrade date can be completely separate. Up to recently when you renewed your employer discount it extended the contract on all your lines 2 years and did not change upgrade dates.

I have a single, ED450 line on my account and my contract ends almost exactly two months after yours, and I'm not seeing that offer in my account. I wonder what the requirements are.

You generally have to take this offer before you upgrade. I had took it a few times when I didn't upgrade immediately when it becomes available.

 

For example, I had force my way out of a contract a few months ago, as soon as the Sprint rep ended my contact, the 80 offer appear on my account asking me to sign up for a contract. I guess the system didn't know I was fully intent on leaving on that particular number.

Service credits for renewing your contract has been around for years. They're even available in store (they were when I worked for Sprint in 2009). Certain customers are available for multiple options when it comes to credits once they're out of contract.

 

Options were:

  • One month free
  • $75 Credit (Sometimes per line)
  • $35 Credit

There were more options but I don't remember everything from 5+ years ago.

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
