**UPDATED** Changes in bold from previous offer

From 12/26 until this Sunday, 1/1, GameStop is offering $50 Gift Cards with each line you activate in their stores. This is exclusive to their stores.


They are also honoring Cricket's other offers which include
- Free Activation Fee when you bring your own number
- Discounted phones under $30 (Samsung Amp 2 is free in these stores)

Considering that plans start as low as $30, this means you can make $20 per line you bring over to Cricket from any other carrier.

Offer is called out on Page 5. This stacks with the other sales mentioned above. Verified in store.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Not all GS stores carry Cricket phones: http://www.gamestop.com/cricket
GS Cricket store locator: http://www.gamestop.com/gs/pages/...tWireless/



Get another $25 (50,000 mpoints) by signing up for Cricket rewards with a r e f e r r a l code - valid only for port-in lines

Cricket Wireless uses the AT&T network:

1GB..................$30 (no autopay availble)
2.5 GB..............$40 ($35 w/ Autopay)
8 GB ............... $50 ($45 w/ Autopay)
10 GB.............. $60 ($55 w/ Autopay)
UNLIMITED ..... $70 ($65 w/ Autopay)

They all come with unlimited calls and texting. Each additional person on the plan knocks the total price by $10 increments from the previous discount. For ex, line 2 = $10 discount, line 3 = $20 discount, line 4 = $30 discount, line 5 = $40 discount.

If you have 5 lines, each 2.5gb line is only $20. You can also mix and match these plan types in a multiple line account.

EG.
Cost of each line with 5 lines active
2.5gb.................$20
8gb....................$30
10gb...................$40
unlimited data .... $50

No autopay discount on group plans.

This is because $100 will be subtracted from the total monthly cost. Only drawback is Cricket throttles you to 8mb/s which is fast enough for most people's daily usage.

Wow, Cricket's definitely getting aggressive with their pricing again. I wonder if the LG X Power will be $10 in store, that'd definitely be icing on the cake!

Seems that way. Their offers in the past require it be used on the next ticket... Maybe if you're doing multiple lines they could be used that way in separate tickets?

Looks like GameStop only carries the Samsung Amp Prime ($10), Amp 2 (FREE), Escape 3 ($19.99) and Stylo 2 ($99) ... Looks like all phone prices are listed "with port"

This has been the price for some time now. At least going 2 months back.

you can use the giftcard after your transaction to send a $50 credit to your cricket account. just did this yesterday on a 5th line (so no monthly cost for the basic plan). i actually just wanted to buy a sim card and now i have a phone i don't need and a $50 credit. pretty slick!
