How Cricket Wireless is Helping You Save Money Right Now

Now more than ever, people are looking to save money. The last 7 months have been our “new” normal and it’s become clear to me from chatting with so many friends and family online and offline that saving money is front and center for everyone.

It’s been something that my husband and I have been discussing too at home. We’ve looked at our lives and are thinking, “What big and little things can we do to save our family money?” Every dollar counts and when you stop and look at what you’re spending, you’re able to determine ways to easily save.

Cricket Wireless

I’ve appreciated seeing companies and brands that I know and love stepping up to help out, too. One of these companies is Cricket Wireless. The truth is everyone needs a phone. It’s how we connect. It’s how we share and navigate our modern world. It’s simply how many of us do our work and stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues.

Cricket Wireless

We can’t not have phone service in this day and age, but we can find ways to get the best deals and rates possible. That’s where Cricket Wireless comes in. Even in the best of economic times, smart shoppers want high quality products at a great value.

Why pay more when you don’t have to?

Cricket Wireless

Since many of us are budgeting in ways we didn’t foresee a few months ago, Cricket Wireless wants their current and future customers to know that they don’t have to sacrifice on service to get a great deal. I know that for many of my friends and family out there, this is exactly what they want and need right now.

Cricket Wireless has affordable rate plans starting at $30/month before opportunities for added savings. The best part is all service plans include monthly taxes and don’t require an annual contract. So, you don’t have to worry about being locked into anything! Cricket brings value without sacrificing quality. Period. They offer a smart and friendly wireless experience and is working to give you the best 5G network experience possible at an affordable price. Talk, text, and stream on their 5G network. *Disclaimer: *Requires a compatible device and a compatible plan for 5G connection. Limited Cricket 5G availability. May not be available in your area.

As you’re navigating to figure out additional ways to save by switching to Cricket Wireless, I want to share 4 tips with you to help you save even more right now:

1. Auto Pay: Customers that enroll in Auto Pay will get $5* off their service every month, something you won’t find at other prepaid carriers. Auto Pay can save up to $60/year. *Disclaimer: “First month rate plan charge due in full. $5 credit applied upon enrollment in Auto Pay. Credit received at end of billing cycle. Auto Pay not available with Group Save discounts or select promotional offers. Visit”

2. Refer a Friend: Earn up to $25 in bill credits for every person you refer to Cricket, with a maximum of 10 referrals/$250 in bill credits per year**. After 60 days of active service, you get $25 in bill credits and so does your friend. From your Cricket online account or the myCricket app, you can track the status of your friend referrals and your credits. • **Disclaimer: “Exclusions and restrictions apply. See for details.”

3. Ad It Up App: Customers can save money by playing games on their phone. The Ad It Up app by Adfone lets Android users earn points to redeem Cricket bill credits and gift cards. Points are earned by playing games, viewing ads, taking surveys and watching videos. The points are redeemed right through the app, so users don’t have to go anywhere to take advantage.

4. Bridge Pay: If you’re short on cash this month, Bridge Pay allows you to break your monthly payment into 2 or 3 easy payments with a 7-day extension. Customers can pay a portion of their bill when it’s due, and then pay the rest one week later. It’s a great way to maintain service and avoid a reconnection fee. Customers are charged a fee*** for the service ($5 on a single line or $10 on a multi-line account), they maintain service and avoid a $25 reconnection fee. • ***Disclaimer: “Up to $10 activ. fee and restr’s apply.”

As you can see, Cricket Wireless is looking for the best ways to serve their customers. They understand that times are different right now for so many out there. I appreciate that they’re stepping up to do everything they can to help people stay connected for work, pleasure and necessity.

Teachig your child about saving money

If you’re new to Cricket, don’t worry – you can bring your own compatible device or choose from one of theirs. They offer the newest model flagship devices along with more affordable options that are attractive and high quality, but with lower price tags. You’re really getting the best of both worlds.

    Phones went from being large with no features, to small with tons of features, and are now getting bigger again, with even more features. I don’t even use most of the stuf on my phone, and I think I could easily survive with an ordinary dumb phone that only sends and receives calls. I am just paying for features and services that I don’t use. I like when companies offer these types of slimmed down plans.

    Plans starting at $30 sounds great. We are currently paying $100 for 2/lines, but the bill is usually $80 because we get $10 kickback for each line that uses less than 2GB of data every month. No taxes, no annual fees. It’s really nice.

    $35.00 For 2 lines with AutoPay

    There are less expensive and more expensive plans as well.

    We transferred our phones for free from Boost Mobile and received a $200 promotional credit.
