Sprint has announced that it will give subscribers of its 40 gigabyte shared data plan a whole year’s subscription to Amazon Prime absolutely free of charge (a 12 month subscription is normally priced at $99). Some may remember that back in March early this year, the fourth biggest wireless carrier in America had offered its customers access to Amazon Prime for just $10.99. Now, it is handing it for free, provided that users sign up for 40 gigabytes of shared data.
The plan being referred to, of course, is the Better Choice XXL plan, which already includes 40 gigabytes of high speed data, plus unlimited voice calls and text messaging. Sprint is highlighting the fact that its Better Choice XXL plan offers two times as much gigabytes compared to what industry leader Verizon Wireless is providing for the same price. For those not in the know, Sprint provides 40 gigabytes of data for $150.
As explained by Roger Sole, the chief marketing officer at Sprint, the Better Choice XXL plan is an ideal package for those subscribers who are looking to avail of the fastest LTE network in the United States, while at the same time, itching to take full advantage of the wide range of entertainment options served up by Amazon Prime.
Interested parties can enroll for the option via online, through phone, or by way of a Sprint retail outlet. Moreover, they are free to confirm their Amazon Prime subscription through a text message. An Amazon Prime membership offers plenty of perks, including unlimited free two day shipping on over 20 million products, unlimited streaming of tens of thousands of films and TV shows via Prime Video, and access to zero ad streaming of more than a million musical tracks, just to name a few benefits. Although Amazon has kept mum with regards to the size of subscriber base, estimates provided by the Consumer Intelligence Research Partners earlier this year state that there may be as many as 54 million Prime customers in the US alone.
As for Sprint, this latest special offer is clearly an effort to get more people to sign up for its high end plans. Of course, Sprint is far from being the only wireless carrier that tried to lure customers by offering extra options. Some may remember that back in March of this year, another major wireless carrier, T-Mobile, started offering MLB.TV Premium for free (normal price is at $110) for this baseball season. Yet another major US wireless carrier, AT&T, has decided to resurrect its unlimited data plan, and offer it to those who subscribe to its DirecTV service.
