Sprint & Best Buy Offers One Year of Free Cellular Service to Students via Parents

Students live on very small budgets so Best Buy and Sprint are doing their best to help young learners stay connected – by offering free service through their parent’s plan and a purchase of a smartphone.

Sprint’s student promo, My Way, is not completely free. Parents must be enrolled in Sprint, and students must purchase a phone and pay for taxes and surcharges. To qualify, students will have to prove they are enrolled in order to get unlimited talk and text along with 1GB of monthly data. Students can add additional data at a cheap $10/GB.

Additionally, parents cannot cancel their phone plan, or the student will lose the remaining months of free service. However, if you have a lot of school-aged kids, you can add up to 10 student lines. That’s a lot of talk & text.
