Are you planning to do a little  phone shopping for a good student in your home?  Well, we just found out about a deal that you and your child will love!  Best Buy and Sprint announced a game-changing Sprint offer this week – just in time for the holidays – giving students 12 months of free talk, text and data from Sprint when they

  • Buy a Sprint phone at the Student Activated Price at Best Buy, and
  • Activate a new line of service on an Unlimited, My Way plan.

If you have a student in your home or you are a student, you may already know that high schools and colleges are incorporating technology into their lesson plans and allowing students to use their smartphones in class. In fact, among teen smartphone owners, 50 percent say they use the Internet mostly via their cell phone.  In an effort to enable students to use their wireless device where and how they need it, Sprint and Best Buy are offering students an exciting new and affordable plan for the holiday season.

It really is a student’s Christmas wish come true.  The Sprint plan includes unlimited talk, text and 1GB data for smartphones or unlimited talk and text for basic phones and does not require a two-year agreement on the students’ lines. The promotion, offering a savings of up to $70 per month, is available exclusively at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores nationwide starting November 18, 2013 through Jan. 4, 2014.
