Sprint offers to pay you $650 if you switch from another carrier


Sprint, the third-largest carrier in the US, has started a limited time offer under which it’ll pay up to $650 in early-termination fees for subscribers who switch from their existing network to Sprint.

The offer is already live and ends on May 8th, which is just a few days from now. Customers who switch to Sprint’s “Framily” plans will be given a prepaid Visa card worth $350, while the other $300 will be paid if the customer offers to trade in their current phone.

Sprint’s Framily plan will cost you $55 per month with unlimited text, talk and 1GB data, and the monthly cost drops $5 for every new connection joining the “framily.”

Sprint’s ETF offer is the same as T-Mobile’s “Uncarrier” promotion, right to the discount amounts, just that Sprint’s offer lasts just for a few days whereas T-Mobile’s offer doesn’t have any termination date.

T-Mobile’s outspoken CEO John Legere took to Twitter to ridicule Sprint’s offer, criticising the carrier for having one of the highest ETFs, while taking a jab at Sprint’s “Framily” plans with the #fruckedup hashtag:

T-Mobile’s CMO chimed in with a few tweets as well, tagged with #fruckedup:

Do you think this offer is enticing enough to lure away subscribers from other carriers? Let us know in the comments.
