Editor’s note: We’ll regularly update this list of the best Cricket deals as new promotions launch.
1. Great deals on the iPhone XR and the Galaxy A32
Although it’s not the newest device from Apple, the iPhone XR is an extremely capable device that is sure to cover all your essentials. Additionally, you’re getting a new iPhone on a plan that gives you unlimited data at the fastest network speeds, a 15GB mobile hotspot, and many other perks.
With 64Gb of storage, a 6.5-inch HD+ 90Hz display, and a 48MP camera, this smartphone has all the features you’d expect in 2021. And for under $100 with a $30/month unlimited data plan, you’ll rarely find a better bargain.
2. Get a new smartphone for free
Right now, Cricket Wireless is offering several smartphone deals for free. You have to switch your old number over to Cricket (excluding any AT&T numbers), then sign up for a plan that’s at least $30 or $60 per month, depending on the device you want. As with all phones sold by Cricket, these handsets will have to be used on the carrier for six months before they can be truly unlocked.
There are quite a few for free right now outside of the two we’ve already mentioned, which you can check out below. However, the list changes very regularly, so it’s worth checking for yourself.
3. Save big on other great phones
