+16 Deal Score
54,462 Views
The SWAC Premium Plan is now $45 ($40 with autopay discount). $10 cheaper than before. It doesn't include the UBER credit anymore but it does have Tidal Hi-Fi now. Look at attachment for the difference.

Advantage Unlimited Plus: $35
Advantage Unlimited Premium: $45

Regular Unlimited Plus: $70
Regular Unlimited Premium: $80

On SWAC, to change plan, go to change plan and select the Unlimited Plan. After that, click "Continue to Review". At the point, click on "Manage Services" and select the Premium add-on for $10 more. You have the option to have it go in effect right away or next billing cycle.

no one knows for sure yet. there might be a catch and all these swacs may get decimated after the merger completes. there are pluses to swac that may be worth it for some.

The same can be said about SERO. Also, they are automatically converting SERO people over to SWAC... so SERO is not necessarily sticking around as a grandfathered plan.

i agree with you, especially since from what i know the forced conversions from SERO to swac started in november last year and are progressing in batches. swacs seem to offer more flexibility but also data deprioritization and may turn out to be an inevitable honeypot with the decreased cost of the premium plan -- no one knows. maybe someone can reach out to Michael to learn what the strategy and plan is for the future and the merger in relation to SERO/swacs.

People forget old sero also included huge phone discounts for the earlier years and it was $30 a month originally. We were forced to move to the $40 a month plan and then $10 for smart phones with no phone discounts later on. These swac plans seem to rival the original sero plans minus the huge phone discounts. Comparing to my sero 500 I say this is a deal, just my thoughts. You also have to remember the cost of normal plans currently are really cheap. They have to make it a benefit for employees. My neighbor pays $25 a month for a normal unlimited data plan with a catch that speeds are limited after a certain amount of data. I was ready to jump off of my sero500 to one of those to reduce my monthly cost. This is what made me start looking into better plans than my sero which I've had since 2005, best slickdeal ever. Cross my fingers the SWAC conversion goes through. I don't have any connections these days.

People saying data limit after certain amount use with SWAC, anyone tested yet?

I might try to see if it's true, my house and my work place are about 200 yards straight lines from their cell towers so I can easily use 50 GBs per day.

How can I get Premium $45 from my just converted $55?
Just did it. If you follow the OPS instructions in the initial post, it works just as described. The only difference is the plan you are choosing will just say Advantage Unlimited, not Advantage Unlimited Plus. But, it did work.

Ok, so looking these over, can someone point out if I am missing something.

The Advantage Unlimited Premium for $55 included "premium quality streaming for Prime," the Uber credit, Tidal Premium and a $5 discount for Autopay.

The plan suggested here for $45 in comparison, loses the premium quality streaming, reverts to Tidal Hifi and you do not get a $5 autopay credit.

So, does premium quality mean 4k? Is Tidal Hifi and step up or down from Tidal Premium?

And since you lose the $5 autopay discount, you're really only saving $5 if you use autopay. If this is correct, you get 4K streaming the Tidal difference and the Uber credit for $5 more. If that's right, then the 4K streaming alone would be worth $5.

Am I missing something?

I contacted "Employee Phone Programs" yesterday and they clarified features of the $45 plan:

"The $45 Advantage Unlimited Premium Plan includes the following:

• $5/mo/line discount with active AutoPay enrollment
• Unlimited Canada/Mexico data roaming
• Streaming Full HD Video
• 100 GB LTE Mobile Hotspot
• Amazon prime with Twitch Prime,
• Lookout Premium Plus
• Hulu ( one per acct. )
• Tidal HiFI plus existing features from Advantage Plus."


When my SERO plan was converted in February 2019, this is the feature list that was provided for the $55 plan, at the time:

"Advantage Unlimited Premium Plan includes the following:

• $55 Advantage Unlimited Premium Plan
• Available for new SWAC/EWD family lines and migrations for existing SWAC/EWD family lines
• $5/mo/line discount with active AutoPay enrollment
• Unlimited Canada/Mexico data roaming
• Streaming Full HD Video
•Includes 100 GB MHS along with Amazon prime,
•Outlook / Lookout Premium Plus
•12 month limited time Uber promotional credit plus existing features from Advantage Plus."

Jesus. I can't quite put my finger on what exactly is wrong with you. Was reading comments thru the various swac threads and your constant questions, advice, conspiracy theories, etc, are just beyond bizarre. Can't believe no one has pointed that out yet. You've got to be one of the most annoying posters I've come across. I usually don't comment on anything but this merited an appearance. May God have mercy on your soul...
Not sure what your issue is but his post here made a lot of sense and I had the same concern. It seems overly generous after such a long period of SERO users being treated like trash.

with the cost of normal unlimited plans decreasing like this, i hope sprint starts adding better phone discounts to swacs as a perk in place of lookout premium and tidal hifi before the merger.

I still can't get it to work for me. Every time I try, I keep getting $54.99?

I am going from the $35 one, up to the $45 one.

Reread my post. I already got Premium but want a cheaper Premium.
