for the past couple of years my oldest has been asking for a cell phone every chance she gets. We tell her that she’s too young (currently 9-years-old) and has no need for a phone. Of course, her argument is that a lot of kids in her class have one and she’s the only one (insert over-dramatic sounds here) that doesn’t have one.
Hubby and I don’t think it’s the right time that she gets a phone but I love the great promotion that Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores (located in select malls across the country) and Sprint are running together. The My Way Student Promotion gives students age 5-years old through college the opportunity to have UNLIMITED talk, text and 1GB of data for a full 12 months!
Students (or parents of a student) who buy a qualifying phone under Sprint’s My Way Plan get 12 months of free unlimited calling and texting, along with 1GB of data. There’s no contract or overages to worry about. The manager Max was very knowledgeable and let me know everything I needed to know like after the 12 months you can continue service by signing up for a Sprint plan or not, it’s your choice!
To take advantage of the plan you need to purchase one of the select phones at a special student price, starting as low as $279 with many phones to choose from even iPhone5 at $599 and the Samsung GS4 mini for a special price $349.99 and then forward student verification form within 14 days.
The only other thing you need to pay is the $36.00 activation fee but then for the next 12 months you don’t have to worry about a bill at all! If you think the 1GB Data may not be enough, you can opt to pay $10.00 a month for totally unlimited data (something I would need!).
