‘Tis the Season with Cricket Wireless and Save Big #STSA {sponsored}

by Notorious Spinks on 12.07.2015


Disclosure: This blog post is part of a paid SocialMoms and Cricket Wireless #STSA blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own.

I remember when I got my first cell phone in 1996. It was a great complement to my beeper. You remember those, right? As I think back to those days, I can still recall the butterflies that I felt when the bill arrived in the mail. The amount I paid for monthly service was a bit much in those early days of cellular use. However, Cricket Wireless arrived on the scene in Memphis and the game changed. I have always been a fan of their one price billing and I’ve partnered with them to bring you this post, because we’re cool like that.

I became a Cricket Wireless customer in 2002 with the old-school Nokia. Not to mention, everyone in my house had Cricket Wireless. The plan prices were affordable and there were no hidden fees. As I think about it, Cricket Wireless was offering unlimited service before it became the trendy thing to do. They definitely set the trend, but the coverage area and selection of cellular phones was limited. Did you ever try calling someone with Cricket back in the day only to find the person was outside the service area?

That’s all changed now. Cricket Wireless has been in the kitchen and they’re serving up great phone selections and offers, wider coverage areas and affordable plan pricing. What’s not to love? Did I mention that taxes and fees are included in the prices and you never have to guess how much your bill will cost? I find this extremely useful when you have children on a family plan.

Of course, cellular phone plans can be expensive even in 2015. But Cricket Wireless has great prices along with additional discounts. If you Auto-Pay your bill like me, then you’ll save $5 each month. And with Group Save, you can save with each additional line, up to $100/mo. with five eligible lines. This is great for you, the spouse and the children. Maybe they can stop borrowing your phone to play MineCraft while ignoring your precious incoming calls! Even better, if you’re single like me, you can gather up four of your friends and sign up together so you can save big this holiday season.

If you’re anything like me, you keep your smartphone with you at all times and reliable coverage means everything. As I prepare to travel to Charleston, S.C. for a press trip, I can appreciate that Cricket Wireless’ network now covers 98% of Americans. Me without my phone is like Halloween without candy. It’s just not…

So head over to Cricket Wireless today and check out their great deals and plans. You can even keep your current smartphone with their BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) program. They’ll just switch out the SIM card and you’re good to go. I’m in the market for a phone line exclusively for clients, so I’m definitely checking out the new Cricket Wireless.

Looking to switch? Cricket has some amazing holiday offers right now, be sure to check them out!

    This is such a good idea. I know two people who really need good phones. One is an older lady who needs the basics. The other is a young man just starting out who needs everything. I will look more at Cricket.

  • Heard a lot of good things about Cricket so far…

    I need my iPhone with me at all times – the signal where i live is very sporadic which is super frustrating! Kaz 🙂

    • I hate when that happens. I’m blessed to live in a great coverage area.

  • Jeanine @ sixtimemommy.com

    I’m beyond fed up with my current carrier. I wish we had cricket here in Canada. We could sure use a good, reliable company with some good plans.

  • Tatanisha Pitts-Worthey

    Cricket wireless sounds like a great service provider. I am going to check them out!

  • Rebecca Swenor

    I didn’t get my first cell phone til around 2002 so I guess I was behind the times. lol Cricket wireless sounds amazing and I will have to check them out. Thanks for sharing the information.

  • Deals4Dummies

    Oh my gosh – I remember beepers! It is crazy how much has changed since then.

    • Exactly. I’m like these kids are blessed to have encyclopedias in their pockets via Google and Wikipedia. Remember when we had to buy them or go to the library.

  • I’m so fed up with my cell phone company…as soon as my contract is up I’m going to check these guys out!

    • And there is no contract with Cricket so you’ll be winning off top. 🙂

  • PennyPincherJenny

    I have heard of Cricket before, they are coming back in our area as well now. They sound like a great cell phone company.

  • I’ve heard of Cricket. They seem to have very competitive rates.

  • WendyK

    I’m looking to upgrade from Tracphone but don’t want to spend a ton. This looks like it may be a good option.

  • I used to be a Cricket Wireless customer back in 1996, it was the only one with reasonable rates. When I moved they didn’t have a cricket cell phone tower in the remote location I moved to then, so I had to switch providers. But Cricket was my first ever affordable cell phone service.

  • Cricket Wireless does seem to have a lot of great pricing options! I really like their Bring Your Own Device program. How clever 🙂

  • I have never heard of Cricket when I was still in the States but it sounds like an awesome company and offer.

  • Rachel Akers

    We are locked into a contract but are happy with it. I like this as an option for a first phone to make sure they are responsible with it and understand how bills work.

    Are you in Memphis? I have never met another Memphis blogger.

    • Hey Rachel, I am in Memphis. And Cricket is great for first phones.

    • I’d love to meet up for coffee. Message me if you’re interested.

      • Rachel Akers

        That would be great. Let figure something out after the holiday’s. You can email me at Rachel@YellowTennessee.com

  • My nephew uses Cricket and he likes it a lot. We are stuck in a verizon plan but i am willing to look into changing at some point.

  • The Get Fit Diva

    Thanks for the 411! With so many wireless programs to choose from, it is so hard to pick one for my family. Checking this out NOW!

  • I’d definitely get a cricket wireless plan for my nephew

  • MommyPowers!

    Thanks for all the useful info. Great to know with kids in school asking for phones!

  • Kitty Bradshaw

    My family is looking to get my 12 y/o cousin her first phone for Christmas. I am going to suggest this service to them.

  • Camesha

    My mother in law uses Cricket. She was able to get a great deal. It totally works for what she needs in a phone.

  • blm03

    I’ll have to check out Cricket. I wonder if they are available here in Chicago.

  • themommyfiles

    I’ve heard a lot of good things about Cricket Wireless. I would definitely check them out if I was looking for new phone service.

  • This is new to me! Thanks for sharing, everyone loves discounts and great pricing especially during the festive season.

  • melissa

    I have never heard of Cricket Wireless before sounds like a good place to do business with. We have been T-mobile for years but if we ever switch it’s good to know there are options.

  • Eileen Mendoza Loya

    I have heard good feedback about Cricket Wireless. I have to check if they offer their services in my area. Thanks for the review!

  • This would be a perfect starter phone. I remember my very first cell phone. It was in 2001.

  • I like that they have great prices and additional discounts. It’s worth looking into!

  • Dogvills

    I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about Cricket Wireless. I’m not sure if it’s available here, but I will look for this.

    Cricket Wireless sounds like a great company. I will have to see if it is available in my area.

  • Maggie Branch

    Cricket is a great company. Plus for people who need affordable and reliable coverage, cricket takes the cake!

  • I think Cricket wireless is perfect for someone on a budget or someone who is just trying to save some money. Maybe I need to look into this?? LOL!!

    • It definitely seems to have some affordable plans. The BYOD program is a plus.

  • Jeanine @ sixtimemommy.com

    I’ve never heard of Cricket before, this sounds pretty great. I don’t think we have Cricket here but if we did what a great option!

  • Rebecca Swenor

    Cricket Wireless sounds like an amazing wireless company. I like that their prices are lower and they have great service plans. I will have to check them out.

  • AlannaB

    I had one of the old school Nokias when Cricket first cam to my hometown. It is good to know that you can activate another phone that you already own.

  • Maurene

    This is a good alternative to gain Internet access. I will definitely consider Cricket next time.

  • Emily

    I’ve been trying to convince my dad to look into Cricket. He has bad coverage in his home and needs a contract-free option.

  • Reliable coverage is definitely key when you travel a lot. Having calls cut out and drop when I’m calling home is so annoying.

  • I think Cricket sounds like a great company. I love my phone, but I”m not a fan of the monthly bill.

  • Jeanette

    It would be nice to save some money on that cell phone. Ours is very expensive.

  • Carol Speake

    I am always looking for great rates on wireless. That bill adds up every month!
