Cricket Wireless has a very sweet deal going on, offering $200 off high-end Android smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S4, Galaxy S3 and HTC One SV.
The price cut is via mail-in rebate and comes in the form of a Visa prepaid card. With this new offer, the immensely popular Samsung Galaxy S4 now costs just $329.99 after the rebate and it's contract-free.
The deals seem to be available only for online orders from Cricket's website. High-end smartphones never come cheap and interested buyers typically resort to agreeing to lengthy two-year contracts with major carriers to get the desired device for a subsidized price. That means sticking to a contract for two-years, paying monthly for said device.
Getting a smartphone off contract is preferable for many, but the high upfront cost is usually the greatest impediment. Cricket Wireless aims to make it easier to get a contract-free high-end phone for a reasonable price and this offer stands proof.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 is the company's new flagship smartphone and at $329.99 off-contract it definitely sounds appealing. Those who still find that price a bit high or who simply feel the new flagship is not worth an upgrade can opt for the Samsung Galaxy S3. The previous Samsung flagship is still a very powerful handset and enjoys plenty of popularity despite its age.
With Cricket's new offer, the Samsung Galaxy S3 costs just $179.99 after rebate, also contract-free. The HTC One SV, meanwhile, goes for $79.99. Check out the rebate page here, but note that customers cannot combine this rebate offer with the older $55 off rebate for the Samsung Galaxy S4 - it's either one or the other.
This special deal will be in place until July 20, which means customers have plenty of time to decide whether to take advantage of it or wait for something else. Those who do want to benefit from its promotion must mail in the rebate within 30 days after their date of purchase and keep their Cricket account active for at least 45 days after purchase. Interested buyers will also have to sign up for automatic bill payment and make at least two payments using this method.
