On one hand, you could argue that there are too many streaming services available today. On the other, we continue to see carrier promotions that include some of these services along with our monthly bills. Cricket Wireless is the latest to offer a pretty sweet promotion, as those on Cricket’s ‘Unlimited’ plan will now receive the ad-support tier of HBO Max for free.
The promotion begins today and applies to both current and new subscribers to the MVNO. Cricket’s Unlimited plan is priced at $60 per month and includes 15GB of mobile hotspot data usage, 100GB of cloud storage, and access to 5G speeds with a compatible phone.
“We are always looking for ways to bring our customers the best value possible. We know they are hungry for content and HBO Max offers the most cutting-edge and high-quality entertainment available. From cult classics to new HBO Max Originals, we know our customers will be smiling ear to ear when they dive in. We’re so excited to be able to bring this incredible service and library of content to our beloved customers.”
Tony Mokry, vice president and chief marketing officer, Cricket Wireless
But Cricket is also including a one-year membership to Sam’s Club, along with special access to the Acorns saving and investing app. All of this for $60 per month is one heckuva deal, especially if you’re looking to switch over from your current carrier.
In order to redeem this promotion for yourself, you’ll need to select the $60 Unlimited plan when you join Cricket Wireless. Current subscribers can add HBO Max to their plans by downloading the HBO Max app from here, signing in with your credentials, and following the prompts within the app.
And if you are trying to decide which phone you should get with Cricket, the Galaxy S20 FE is on sale for just $399, down from its retail price of $699. While we’re awaiting the arrival of the S21 FE, last year’s model still offers a fantastic value.
