Good news, Sprint customers: you now get a free year of Amazon Prime! Maybe. If you activate a "qualifying" Samsung phone for a new line of service or a renewed line, Sprint will foot the bill for Amazon's premium shipping option for a year. The promotion starts today, and those qualifying phones are limited to the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge+, and the Galaxy Note 5. So basically it's just for Samsung's 2015 flagship quadruplets - you can't just run out and buy an ancient Galaxy S II for ten bucks and get $100 worth of freebies.
The offer runs through November 30th, and it's valid for Sprint customers who buy their phone outright, lease it, pay in installments, or use an old-fashioned two-year contract. As with all Amazon Prime subscriptions, it includes free two-day shipping on a huge variety of items, free same-day delivery in some urban areas, a selection of free streaming movies and TV shows on Amazon Video, exclusive playlists and radio stations on Amazon Music, and unlimited photo storage on Prime Photos.
Buying Prime on its own currently costs $99... so the savings are unlikely to sway anyone who's satisfied with their current service. Still, if you were going to grab a Samsung phone on Sprint anyway, you might want to do it before the end of the month.
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), November 06, 2015 - Beginning Nov. 6, new and existing Sprint (NYSE:S) customers that activate qualifying Samsung devices on Sprint, receive a full year of Amazon Prime on us – that’s a $99 value, exclusively from Sprint.
