Cricket announces an early Black Friday deal that will reward customers with $100 for switching carriers


Cricket Wireless has already announced some deep price cuts on select phones through the first week of January, but today they’ve unwrapped a few more deals for anyone looking at making the jump to Cricket over the holidays.

This new deal works as an early Black Friday special and will give a $100 Cricket Shopping Card to anyone that switches to the carrier before December 6th. The card is good for monthly service, or new phones and accessories, which could either get you a nice new phone or a few free months of service. This deal does stack with Cricket’s currently discount holiday phone selection, some of which are also giving out the same shopping cards, so you can easily end up with a large amount of credit by the end of the year.

Not a bad deal, especially for a prepaid carrier. Anybody taking the plunge to Cricket?
