SprintSprint is making a big play for college students. The carrier is partnering with Best Buy to offer 12 months of free cellular service to students that purchase a new smartphone from the retailer. The Unlimited, My Way student promotion includes unlimited voice minutes, unlimited texting, and 1GB of data. (Basic feature phones are also eligible, though it’s not nearly as good of a deal.) To qualify for the promotion, students must purchase a phone at full retail cost from Best Buy and verify their enrollment at college, high school, or even middle school within 14 days. If that 1GB of data proves too small for your needs, you can bump it up to unlimited for $10 each month. Sprint says the deal saves students up to $70 monthly, and it’s certainly worth looking into if you’re trying to cut back on costs.
