sprint Sprint and Best Buy offer students a free year of service

Sprint and Best Buy have announced a partnership that will offer students in the US 12 months of service at no cost. Does the deal sound too good to be true? Well, it should, because there is a small catch.

Students who visit a Best Buy retail store can request the My Way Student Promotion and receive 12 months of free service that includes unlimited talk and text. The plans require that the customer purchase a phone, and it limits the subscriber to only 1 GB of data per month. Switching to an Unlimited plan will require paying $10 per month.

My Way Student subscribers will still be responsible for paying all applicable activation charges, taxes, and monthly service fees, so they aren’t exactly getting a free phone. However, the promotion removes the $70 monthly charge that Sprint typically requires. Once the 12-month period ends, customers will be on the hook for the full $70 per month charges if they don’t terminate the line. More questions can be found at Sprint’s FAQ site.
