Sprint cut bill in half

You know holidays are around the corner when greedy carriers start putting out promotions offering substantial savings and other perks if you jump ship. Announced on Tuesday, Sprint’s new promotion promises to cut your wireless bill in half if you switch to Sprint from AT&T or Verizon Wireless beginning Friday, December 5, for as long as you remain on the Sprint plan.

Plus, Sprint will buy out your contract up to $350 per line. “You’ll get unlimited talk and text to anywhere in the U.S. and we’ll match your data,” the carrier teased. As an example, a Verizon customer paying $140 per month for four lines and ten gigs of data can get four lines and the same ten gigs of data on Sprint for $70 per month, or half the Verizon’s price.

Jump past the fold for the full reveal and fine print.

Here’s how it works:

  • 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.3
  • Get your new phone with one of our leasing options, Sprint Easy Pay(SM) installment billing, or pay full retail price for the device.

As stated above, you can visit a Sprint store and give them your current bill, too.

Either way, you’ll need to turn in your old phone and then buy a new device from Sprint, either unsubsidized or through Sprint’s new leasing plans.

For those on a contract with AT&T or Verizon, Sprint will generously pay your early termination fee up to $350 per line in the form of a Visa Prepaid Card or installment bill balance when you switch.

Once you’ve received the final bill from your non-Sprint carrier, register for the Visa Prepaid Card at sprint.com/jointoday.

Note that discount applies to base monthly service plan only and not to charges such as taxes, surcharges, add-ons, apps, premium content, international services, devices, partial charges or additional lines.

The fine print cautions that other plans may receive prioritized bandwidth availability. “To improve data experience for the majority of users, throughput may be limited, varied or reduced on the network,” warns the carrier.

    Tempting AF until you remember which Carrier you’d have to go to.

    • Lol I was just gonna say that. Its really not worth the switch even for half the price. I wouldn’t even switch if they gave free service for 3 months. The worst part is you can’t even unlock most of their phones once your done with them for use in the U.S.

  • Dani Hayes

    I wish this was one hundred percent accurate. My bill on AT&T is roughly $90 with my unlimited data. I would not switch back to Sprint though.

    • Lurker22

      And remember, you’re not “unlimited high speed” data, you’re just high speed for 3gb/month, thereafter ATT slows you to below edge speeds.

      I ditched my unlimited data as it’s not worth keeping anymore compared to other benefits (much lower monthly price and tethering included). I even negotiated to get 4gb data a month for same price as the 3gb/month plan.

      • Dani Hayes

        I still use five gb’s after I get throttled. The cap plans are not worth it for me.

      • Rodney Coleman

        I have 30GB of data. Pretty worth it..

      • Dani Hayes

        If I switched to that tier it would cost me roughly $145 a month and that it’s not worth it for more.

      • Nathan

        Even when throttled, AT&T is still loads faster than Sprint.

  • Vatsal Manot

    The trap is set (cue evil background music).

  • Rodney Coleman

    UM NO!!! Lol shitty service

  • Wind mobile is even worse here in Canada. Unlimited everything for $25/month, but 99% of the time, you’re out of their service area and would be roaming…

    • Ryan Bartsch

      used to be on wind, im in toronto and could rarely load a webpage so i bit the bullet and went to koodo, they r at least better than rogers or bell.

  • Rick Hart

    I’m on Verizon unlimited data. I don’t ever get throttled. Not going anywhere else!

    • Mitchell Flores

      Mine is the bottom one lol

  • Guest

    And this is last month

  • The Afroman

    But.. then you are with Sprint.. which also cuts your data speeds in half.

  • Victor Molina

    I’m one of the 0.01% that’s on boost and I’m not really complaining since I get great to good service where I need to go

  • Haha! They’re scared to include T-Mobile…or even try to come at their service. T-Mobile FTW!

  • Eikast

    Not only will they cut your bill in half but they’ll also cut your data speeds in half :p
