$80 service credit per line offer for one year contract extension

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.

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
