If you’ve been in the market for a new smartphone, you might be aware that Sprint recently announced that all of their smartphones activated after January 30 will have an additional $10 per month tacked onto the monthly bill. You can easily sidestep the new fee, however, if you get a referral from a Sprint employee. Don’t know anyone who works for Sprint? Then you might want to have a look at the blog of one Russ McGuire, VP of Strategy for Sprint. On it, he has prominently displayed on the right side all the info you need to get the special Sprint employee referral price.
Just visit www.sprint.com/everythingplus and enter in Mr. McGuire’s email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the last three digits of his employee id (383). The plans on offer give you slightly more minutes and at least a $10 per month discount on the regular plans, but it only works for new customers or existing customers who are adding lines of service.
This tip comes courtesy of a fellow listener of Tech News Today, who details this plan at the end of episode 161 – embedded below (it starts at about the 45 minute mark).
