Sprint gets aggressive in targeting AT&T, Verizon customers with half price deal

sprint_half_price_event

Perhaps feeling the pressure to step up their efforts to maintain their customer base, Sprint has announced a new deal to lure┬ácustomers switching to Sprint from Verizon or AT&T. Sprint’s latest effort offers to cut user bills in half compared to the other carriers. For example, if a user has a monthly bill for $140 per month with 10 GB of data shared between 4 lines, Sprint will setup a plan on their network for $70 per month for the same 4 lines and 10 GB of data. Talk and text will be unlimited on the new plans.

Sprint is opening the new deal starting this Friday when users can either upload a copy of their current monthly bill from Verizon or AT&T or take one by their local Sprint store to find out how much they can save. Users will have to buy new devices on Sprint and turn in their old devices as well as port over their existing numbers to qualify. As part of the special, Sprint is also offering to buy out existing contracts up to $350 per line via issuance of a Visa Prepaid Card that buyers can use to pay off their early termination fees. For a limited time, Sprint is also waiving the $36 per line activation fee.
