Please don't down-vote, I'm just trying to spread awareness of this change. I know it's bad news.
Cricket Wireless has removed their group save discount of $100 off of 5 group-save eligible lines. The savings are now reduced to only $70 off
of 5 group-save eligible lines.
So previously, for 5 lines on the $40 plan, the first line would be $40, second line $30, third line $20, fourth line $10
, and fifth line free
. For a total of $100 per month.
From now on
, for 5 lines on the $40 plan, the first line will be $40, second line $30, third line $20, fourth line $20, and fifth line $20
. For a total of $130 per month
Furthermore, they have removed their 8 GB ($50/$45) plan. The only two options you now have that are higher than their 5 GB ($40/$35) plan, are the Unlimited 2 plan ($55/$50, which maxes at 3 mbps speeds) and the Unlimited plan ($60/55).
See screenshots attached.
This new policy applies to any new customers, as well as to current customers who make any changes to any current plan.
So if you're currently on an existing 5/$100, then to maintain your existing 5/$100 (i.e. keep it grandfathered in), don't make any
changes to any of your current plans.
