Phone Tip #1: Change Carriers, Get Money
Did you know that by switching carriers, you may be eligible for a credit?
Since I am in the process of looking for a new phone and carrier (buh-bye T-mobile), I called Sprint to see what kind of magic they can work for me if I were to cancel my contract with T-mobile and port my number over to them. If I signed up for a non-smart phone two year contract, Sprint would give me a $50 dollar credit. That is impossible though, because I will never sign a two year deal with a "dumbphone". And neither should you. Sprint was also offering a $125 credit for a two year contract with a smarthphone. Now we are talking...
Keep in mind, there were two caveats with the Sprint offer:
- I would still have to pay my cancellation fee with T-mobile, which is $50 dollars at the moment.
- The credit would not show up in my account until 60 days after my contract started.
So if you are looking to switch carriers, call up another carrier and see if you can get a credit for switching. It is worth a shot. Unless you do not like saving money.
