Shopping for a cellphone is downright intimidating and scary. I get anxiety just thinking about contracts, activation fees, credit checks, monthly fees, the cost of the phone and that’s not even all of it! You have to actually decide on a phone that works for you! I happened to be shopping around for two cellphones this month – one for my 14 year old D who broke his screen and the other for my college student husband who needs a step up from his Samsung Galaxy II. It worked out perfect when Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores and Sprint announced their AMAZING Unlimited, My Way promotion for students which gives students up to 12 months of free talk, text and 1 GB data with the purchase of a smartphone! If you are heavy on the data use, it’s just $10 a month. YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT. One whole year of FREE mobile service for students! College students need to get on this, it will free up $70 per month from your budget!
There is no catch and there is no small print – all you have to do is pony up the money for the phone and a onetime $36 activation fee. So back to downright intimidating and scary, the Best Buy Mobile Specialty Store (not the traditional Best Buy store) is the opposite. I walked in and was greeted by a sales associate that went over the promotion with me, she was gentle and was patient with all of my questions – I made a note of how many smartphones were available under the plan (Yay for Samsung Galaxy!) and appreciated that the student offer prices were clearly labeled. The Unlimited, My Way promotion is exclusively available at Best Buy Mobile Speciality Stores, not Sprint stores!
