Starting Friday, current Sprint customers who buy an iPhone 6S or 6S Plus can get one free. Current customers do need one line that’s eligible for an upgrade and will also need to add one new line of service. New customers will obviously need to add two lines of service.
This deal works whether you purchase or lease the phones. You can even purchase one of them and lease the other if you wish. For even more flexibility, both phones can be either the iPhone 6S or the 6S Plus, or you can select one of each.
You can purchase the iPhone 6S 16GB for $0 down and 24 monthly installments of $27.09. The second iPhone 6S will be free after Sprint gives you a $27.09 monthly credit. Or you can purchase the iPhone 6S Plus 16GB for $0 down and 24 monthly installments of $31.25. Again, Sprint will give you a credit of $31.25 per month to make the second phone free. If you choose two different models, the one with the lower monthly cost will get the monthly credit.
If you opt for a lease instead, it’ll cost $26.39 a month for 18 months for the iPhone 6S 16GB and $31 per month for 18 months for the 6S Plus 16GB. The advantage to leasing is that the cost is much lower since it’s only for 18 months and you can upgrade anytime after 12 months. However, once you make all 18 payments, you have to turn in your phone since you don’t own it — or you can opt to purchase it.
Sprint does offer you the ability to return your phones after 30 days if you’re not happy. Plus, if you’re a new customer, you can save up to 50 percent off your current bill. That deal was supposed to end in February, but it keeps chugging along.
In addition to the BOGO for the iPhone, Sprint will also knock off $200 on the latest iPads when you purchase or lease the iPhone 6S or 6S Plus. You can choose from the iPad Mini 4, iPad Air 2, iPad Pro 9.7, or iPad Pro 12.9 in any memory configuration. The credit is spread out over 24 months, so the cost of the iPad Air 2 16GB or iPad Mini 4 16GB would be only $13.75 per month instead of $22.09 per month. The iPad Pro 9.7 32GB would be only $22.08 per month instead of $30.42, and the iPad Pro 12.9 would be only $28.33 per month as opposed to $36.67.
Sprint didn’t specify when either of these deals will end, but it did say that they are limited time offers.
