I have partnered Megan Media and Cricket Wireless to bring you this information. Although compensated, the opinions expressed are my own and not influenced in any way.
I have been chosen by Cricket Wireless to share with you reasons why switching to their carrier are sure to make you smile as part of their #SwitchforSmiles campaign.
Let’s face it — cell phones have become a very important part of our everyday lives. Some people (like me) use them to keep in touch with our families, do the occasional Google search or take photos. Other people, like my teenagers, can’t be apart from their phones for a second for fear that they might miss a text message or Snapchat video. Even my husband will wake up in the middle of the night to get a drink or use the bathroom, then check Twitter before going back to sleep.
Since we all rely on our phones, it is essential to find the right carrier, but there are so many carriers and phone plans available these days that it can make your head spin!
Two things I don’t like about most phone companies. When you sign up with most, you’re stuck in a lengthy contract. I also hate those monthly surprises in the phone bill. When you live on a budget, you can’t afford added charges to your phone bill. With Cricket Wireless, there are no annual contracts.
Cricket Wireless has plans for as low as $35 per month (after a $5 auto pay credit)1 with monthly taxes and fees INCLUDED in that price. In other words: no surprises. I like that.
All Cricket Wireless plans also include unlimited talk and text. We tried to do a plan (with our current provider) with a limited number of texts in order to save some money. That lasted for a month because our teens went through our allowed number of texts half way through the month! So we had to switch back to an unlimited plan which cost us a lot more.
Data is another issue. Data is what you use when you surf the Internet, post on Facebook, upload photos on Instagram and follow Twitter. Some plans only give you a certain amount of data you can use each month, and unlimited plans tend to be very pricey. With Cricket Wireless, you can get their new Unlimited Data Plan for only $65 per month (after $5 auto pay credit), which also includes all taxes and fees. Add’l fees & restr’s apply. See offer details.2
Cricket Wireless also offers consumers some of today’s hottest, “must-have” phones, including their new lineup of Samsung Galaxy phones, just in time for summer.
You can pick up a Samsung Galaxy smartphone from Cricket Wireless starting at only $19.99/mo when you switch to their service.
They even carry the Samsung Galaxy Amp Prime, which is only $49.99 when you switch to Cricket Wireless. Hurry! These are limited time offers and do require porting your number and new qualified plan at a minimum of $40 a month. Taxes, fees, charges, & restrictions do apply. See offer details.3
Love your current phone? Don’t worry! Your phone may be eligible to switch to Cricket: you just have to check the compatibility and order the Universal SIM Card Kit ($9.99).
Switching from your current carrier to Cricket Wireless is super easy. And if you switch now, you get a $50 bill credit4 (T-Mobile customers who switch get a $100 bill credit).5 These are currently limited time offers for new service lines only and require porting your number and two qualified plan (for a minimum of $40 a month) service payments within 45 days. You will then receive your credit within 60 days of activation. Charges and restrictions apply. See offer details.
