Sprint has partnered with Best Buy to give students one year’s worth of service for free as part of a new Sprint Student Program. Available in select Best Buy stores today and expanding nationally later this week, the Unlimited, My Way Student Promotion provides up to $70 worth of monthly coverage at no cost.
The promo allows for unlimited voice, texting, and 1GB of data just so long as the student purchases a smartphone (through Best Buy) and signs the requisite two-year service agreement. As to what students qualify, Sprint says college, high school, and even middle school students are eligible. Should 1GB of data not be sufficient, Sprint will let students bump up to unlimited for a mere $10 per month.
Those who refer friends or other family members to the program will score another 12 months of free service to share. The catch, of course, is that you must purchase another smartphone through Best Buy and sign a contract, Indeed, each line will still have the standard $36 activation and cancellation fees. According to Sprint, the Unlimited, My Way Student Promotion window closes on January 4, 2014; act fast if you plan to take advantage!
