Family of five? Sprint offers unlimited talk, text, and data for $90 a month

Sprint is gaining on its big three competitors and now, it’s looking to make up even more ground with an impressive deal involving unlimited data. On Friday, the mobile service provider announced that new customers can get unlimited data, talk, and text for $50 a month for the first line, and add up to four more lines for just $40 more. That means you could get up to five lines of unlimited data, talk, and text for $90 a month — really, the more the merrier.

“Sprint understands the value of unlimited data to our customers,” said Roger Solé, Sprint chief marketing officer. “Customers do more with their phones every day and they want to use them without limits. With our new offer, you can sign up for a plan that allows you to surf and stream all you want and not worry about overage fees and charges. So why not use your wireless device to its full potential to enjoy things you love like Snapchat, social media, Twitter, watching video, texting and calling — all on our highly reliable network.”

To take advantage of the offer, customers need only to sign up for the plan with Sprint via AutoPay and decide whether it’s just one line they want, or the whole family they need to connect. Given that a couple of Verizon’s competitors don’t offer an unlimited plan, this may be a pretty good ploy to get folks to switch.

Verizon, after all, has no unlimited option and is cutting off some of its grandfathered customers. AT&T only offers unlimited data for customers who sign up for DirectTV or U-verse TV with a minimum of $50 a month, Sprint points out. That means that you could actually end up saving up to $180 a month if you switch from AT&T to Sprint with this new plan.

Even T-Mobile can’t keep up price-wise, as Sprint notes that an unlimited plan for a family of five would be $90 cheaper per month than it would be with the Un-carrier.

Of course, this promotion has an expiration date, so Sprint is urging interested parties to act soon by heading to a local retail location.

Sprint holds another flash sale, offers the iPhone X for $5 per month
iPhone X.

For those who have been eyeing the iPhone X since its release but can't justify the hefty price tag, now might be your chance to make the purchase. With Sprint's latest flash sale, the carrier is offering the iPhone X for $5 per month to new and existing customers -- for one week only.

This isn't the first flash sale Sprint has offered this month, either. Up until August 9, the carrier was offering the iPhone 8 for only $8 per month. But this time around it's a little different -- in addition to being required to sign up for a new line with the Sprint Flex lease plan as well as having to add a new line of service, you're also required to trade in an eligible device (all of which are listed on Sprint's site).

After rumors about the plan hit the mill a few weeks ago, Sprint has announced a new unlimited data plan built specifically for seniors. The 55-plus plan is aimed at offering the older smartphone users among us a way to get as much data as they need at a very affordable price.

And affordable it is. While the standard non-age-restricted unlimited data plan can run well into the $60-$70 range, Sprint's unlimited data plan for seniors comes in at $50 per month for the first line, and as little as $20 per month for a second line. What that means is that with Autopay set up, seniors can get unlimited data for as little as $35 per month per line.
