Sprint has been working hard to attract new subscribers and has recently offered two new great promotions: a $50 iPhone discount and a $100 American Express Reward card offer. However, a new promotion is coming that we think blows the other two out of the water.
According to a new report, the Now Network will soon offer $400 of in-store credit to new customers if they switch to Sprint and sign a 2-year contract.
