Sprint Will Pay Your Early Termination Fees to Switch, Too

One of the most eye-catching cell carrier deals of recent times is spreading. Sprint announced Friday that it will pay the early termination fees (ETFs) of anyone who switches to a new Framily plan on its network, up to $650 – matching T-Mobile’s identical offer from a couple months back.

Under the terms of the new deal, Sprint will offer up to $300 to buy your current device. Then, after you’ve obtained proof of paying another carrier’s ETF, Sprint will reimburse you with a Visa gift card up to $350.

Short for “friends and family,” Sprint’s no-contract Framily plan offers separate billing and escalating discounts for each additional line added. Prices start at $55 for unlimited talk, text and 1GB of data, decreasing by $5 with each additional line added. At maximum savings – 7 lines – everyone in your Framily will pay $25 per line.

Sprint’s promotion is a limited time deal that runs from April 4 to May 8. But before you jump out of your current contract to switch, do your research – there are better carriers and better deals out there.
