Many postpaid carriers have rewards programs that’ll get you points for doing things like paying your bill, and those points can then get you discounts or gift cards for other retailers. For example, AT&T has Plenty and Verizon has Smart Rewards. Now prepaid carriers are getting into the rewards program trend, too.
Cricket Rewards is the new rewards program from AT&T prepaid operator Cricket Wireless. With Cricket Rewards, you get points by doing things like opening and registering a Cricket account, enrolling in AutoPay, and making on-time payments. You can also earn points by downloading specific apps like My Cricket, The Weather Channel, and TMZ, and also by completing surveys and watching videos.
So what do you do with these points? There are a few different options at your disposal. You can cash them in for gift cards to Amazon, GameStop, Sephora, AMC, and more, or you can use them to enter contests. The points can also be donated to charities like the American Heart Association and the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

Cricket has also announced it Black Friday deals. Anyone that switches to the prepaid carrier between November 20 and December 6 will get a $100 Cricket Shopping Card that can be used to pay your bill or buy phones and accessories. Cricket is also offering Cricket Visa Promotion Cards of varying values when you buy select phones between November 13 and January 7:
