FREE referral codes are on eBay- FREE referral links are in the eBay item description no need to pay $0.99. Just search for "Cricket Referral" and look for the ones which are available.

PLEASE , NO begging or self-advertising of referral links on SD

STEP 1
Create a new account to purchase the phone. You can self refer and both your existing and new accounts will each get $25

If you have a non-AT&T number, you can port into Cricket. If you have an AT&T number, you can purchase a non-AT&T number from eBay

STEP 2
Before purchasing your iPhone 8 Plus with the new email address, generate the $25 referral coupon from your existing cricket amount.

Your referral code expires 30 days from generation- purchase and activate during this time period

STEP 3
IMMEDIATELY after activating your new phone, enter your unique referral code emailed to you in the "Everything's Better with Friends" section of the myCricket app or Cricket online website. After inputting referral code, you will see a 60 day countdown tracker in the "Everything's Better with Friends" on when your $25 credit is credited.

Downgrade immediately your plan to the $30 plan. You will get the full $30 prorated credit if you downgrade within the first day of activation.

STEP 4
After 2 months on cricket plan, both your new and old accounts are credited each with the $25 referral. 2-3 days before your third month is charged on your new account, call cricket customer service to merge your new account with your old account ensuring your $25 credit from the new account is transferred/ merged with your old account and then cancel that additional line that was merged

I did the same thing for $199. Do you know any way to price match? Or return?

What is the cheapest plan to downgrade to? I'm guessing there has to be active service for 6 months.

The guy on chat said I could return and rebuy... They would not give me $50 credit. I will try calling tomorrow if I get time.

No band 71 for T-Mobile, but otherwise it will work. The same phone Apple sells unlocked.

Not a very good deal, in other words, for those who want to use in on TMo in 30 days. That $149 quickly turns into many more $$$$$.
