If you shop at Target and need a new phone, download cartwheel, and get 20% off on any sprint phone, plus get a minimum $100 gift card towards the phone if you do a trade in. Pretty good deal!

Do you have any other information on this? I have a friend looking to move to Sprint.

Here's a screenshot of the deal from Cartwheel app. Good through 12/20. Didn't see anything about the trade in part.

Updated the post with a picture of the ad showing the trade in special.

I have an upgrade on my account but am content with my Nexus 5, can I use the upgrade and sell the phone after they activate it?

 

Would my math be right for the iPhone 6: $190 - 20% discount from Cartwheel - $100 for trade in - $50 Target gift card - $400 resale value of iPhone 6 = $398 profit?

 

Sounds too good to be true.

Basically you trade in a smsrtphone in the trade in catalog, if it works, no broken parts, you get minimum $100 target giftcard. But has to be done at time of buying the contract upgrade.

 

So basically you get Iphone 6$ 199

For 20% off on carthweel, is now $159. You can trade in your Nexus 5, get for example $100 Giftcard, and on top of that all iphones get a $50 giftcard. So in turn you get away with target paying you

You're paying about $20 a month for your subsidy.  So you'll pay $480 plus a phone to get $398.  That actually sounds like a pretty bad deal unless you consider the time value of money (you make the money now and pay it back over the next 2 years) and trade in a worthless qualifying phone.  You'll also be locked into your contract for 2 more years.

I have postpaid accounts with Sprint, Verizon and AT&T. With no contracts. So liberating! I don't plan to ever go back. If I can't afford the phone's cash price, then I can't afford the phone. That's my philosophy.

Discussing a subsidy model versus a contract free cellphone model would take too long, so I will not speak generally.

 

Personally though, I pay $55 a month for unlimited everything on Family Everything Data 1500.  The breakdown would be $50 a month for unlimited data plan and $5 for the subsidy or $398-120=278.

 

I did forget to add the activation fee though.

If you are on framily it was $15. Alao noting on a maxed frmily you save another $5 extra so it isnt as high as you think. For those that wish to get a phone from target like the iphone, dont wish to do easy pay, you can buy said phone (if you ha e a smartphone like an Iphone 4 or something ) trade in your phone, and you can get the iphone for $350( contract cancelation ) plus $59. But you also get a $59 giftcard. Getting an Iphone 6 outright for $350 is a good deal given you cancel the new line after the 14 days.

    • Went to Rolling Loud NYC at Citi Field this weekend. Over 60,000 people in attendance. Verizon is a sponsor of the festival this year so naturally they had a ton of COWs set up at the festival. I counted at least 4. As a result, they were virtually the only carrier consistently able to provide a data connection. I didn't see any Verizon 5G, only LTE. T-Mobile on the other hand was a very interesting experience. I was seeing an eNB 331804 which I'm 99% sure is a COW. They also seems to be doing some sort of traffic management because I noticed that if I left my phone idle in my pocket, it would drop down to No Service/SOS or sometimes it would sit on EDGE. But the second that I needed to send a text, make a call, or even use Twitter my phone would switch over to LTE or 5G to complete the task. In an active data session, my phone would constantly flip between Band 2, Band 66, and Band 41. Sometimes, I'd catch myself on the COW and other times I'd get pushed over to eNB 875868, the relatively new Sprint conversion nearby. The network moved at a snails pace though. Where Verizon took about 15 seconds to load Twitter or send a pic, T-Mobile could take up to a minute to complete the same task. Here's some photos of the COWs I spotted. I think that the first two are Verizon and the one in the distance in the third pic is T-Mobile's single COW, not nearly enough for an event that size.
