Sprint wants to encourage folks to switch carriers and sign up for its Sprint Unlimited plan this holiday season, so it’s throwing in a bonus worth $100.
But there’s a catch. We’re not talking about hard cold cash here, but rather virtual currency you’ll have to spend in Pokémon Go. That’s right, Sprint will be basically handing out $14,500 PokéCoins which can be exchanged for up to 3,600 Poké Balls, 480 Max Revives, 145 Premium Raid Passes or 96 Incubators.
Taking advantage of the offer is easy. Just activate a new line of service in a Sprint store, then ask a sales representative for the FREE Pokémon Go gift. You’ll soon receive a text message with instructions on how to redeem your prize.
The deal was announced in order to celebrate the fact that Niantic recently unleashed 50 new Pokémon from the Hoenn region including Treecko, Trochic or Mudkip.
Once again let us remind you, you’ll have to jump on board Sprint’s Unlimited plan in order to be able to take advantage of this offer. Sprint’s unlimited bundle includes four lines of unlimited data, talk and text for $25/month with the fifth one offered for free. Subscribers also get unlimited access to Hulu and a six-month trial for Tidal.
Sprint doesn’t say how long the deal is good for, so if you’re a serious Pokémon Go player you would do well to hurry up if you want to take advantage of the promo.
