This November, Cricket introduced its holiday promotions for the year. “The merrier carrier” is offering new customers two smartphones for free, and two at a discounted rates when they activate on Cricket’s services.
This is a limited time offer— while supplies last,
so its unclear when it will end, and the offer does not include ports from AT&T. Other than that, you would just need to stay on Cricket’s service for 30 days after paying for the first month up front, otherwise there will be a $25 restocking fee for your device.
Here are the 4 holiday smartphone deals:
- LG Spree — Free
- Samsung Galaxy Amp 2 — Free
- LG Escape 3 — $19.99
- Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime — $49.99
Cricket has a number of other phones available for purchase, some are basic phones but most are smartphones. In fact, Cricket pretty much always has specials on its phones— a number of phones are listed as free for customers who port in their own number, not as a holiday special, including the Microsoft Lumia 650.

, or bring your unlocked GSM device in for activation— SIM cards are available for purchase at $9.99.
Cricket has plans
starting at $30 a month, taxes and fees included, working up to $70 a month ($65 with autopay). All plans include unlimited talk, text, and data, though the data is tethered to 2G speeds after your allotment is used.
Cricket operates on AT&T’s network, and is ultimately pretty respected among MVNO’s. You can view full coverage here
