Back to school time is rapidly approaching, and shopping time is upon us. Those enrolled in classes are well aware of the drill: laptops, books notebooks, pens, exorbitant tuition fees - and thanks to Boost Mobile, cell phones have been added to the list. The Sprint subsidiary has teamed up with Barnes & Noble stores on various college campuses to offer Boost Mobile products and services. The Motorola Clutch and the Motorola i776 are available at the various locations for $129.99 and $99.99, respectively. Combined with the $50 unlimited plan, the package isn't a bad deal at all.
In March, Adriana wrote a fantastic article about users migrating from postpaid to prepaid services due to the recessionary economy (in fact, 26 percent of cell phone users said that they would consider switching to prepaid). With tuition and textbook costs rising, I'd be willing to say that it's a smart move on Boost Mobile's part. Anyone considering a migration?
