Sprint to offer upgrade discount to select customers that are at risk of jumping to another carrierAlex Wagner - Senior News Editor
Are you a Sprint customer that's eligible for an upgrade but has been flirting with the idea of jumping ship to another carrier? If so, Sprint may have just the thing to keep you on the Now Network. A document leaked to the folks at SprintFeed has revealed that, beginning February 5th, Sprint will begin getting in contact with customers that are eligible for an upgrade but are "at a high risk of leaving Sprint" via email or snail mail. The carrier says it'll be offering those subscribers a discount of either $25, $50 or $100 for upgrading to a new device as a way to entice them to stick around. This discount is on top of the standard upgrade savings and, of course, also requires a two-year agreement. The promotion is slated to run through March 18th.
Good deal, no? Obviously not everyone is eligible to get a piece of this discount, but for those of you that fit the above criteria, it's definitely worth a shot to give Sprint a call to on the 5th if you'd rather not wait around for a message from the carrier to pop up in your mailbox (electronic or otherwise). Any of you out there think that you might be able to take part in this promo? If so, do you think a discount of up to $100 off of a new phone would be enough to get you to stay with Sprint?
