Cricket Wireless is the no-contract subsidiary of AT&T, offering customers a way to get affordable smartphones with cheap prepaid plans. While many of Cricket’s smartphones are already priced pretty reasonably, some special Cricket deals stand out right now. We’ve compiled the best Cricket deals in this post, but be aware that various terms and conditions apply.
Cricket mainly offers phone savings when you join the carrier, although they have occasional price drops on plans. To learn more about what Cricket offers in terms of plans, check out our Cricket Wireless buyer’s guide.
Featured deal: Get a free Moto G Stylus 5G (2022)
Cricket always offers the chance to score a free phone when you join the network, but the stakes have been raised in the latest round of offers. If you meet a few requirements, you can pick up the Moto G Stylus 5G (2022) for free, saving you $250.
You don’t need to fork out for the most expensive Samsung device to get a stylus phone, and you certainly don’t need to go that far for 5G connectivity. The Moto G Stylus 5G offers both, and the rest of the package isn’t bad either. Excellent battery life and solid performance make this a fine daily driver, especially when it’s free of charge.
To qualify for the deal, you must bring your number to the Cricket Wireless network and sign up for the $60 monthly plan. No long service contracts or trade-ins required.

1. Get a new smartphone for free

Right now, Cricket Wireless is offering several smartphone deals for free. You have to switch your old number over to Cricket (excluding any AT&T numbers), then sign up for a plan that’s at least $30 or $60 per month, depending on the device you want. As with all phones sold by Cricket, these handsets must be used on the carrier for six months before they can be truly unlocked.
There are plenty of free options right now, which you can check out below. The list changes regularly, so it’s worth checking for yourself.
2. Save big on other great phones

While not completely free, signing up for a Cricket plan can secure you some solid savings on higher-end phones, as with the deals mentioned above.
Here’s a selection of the phones you can save on:
3. Get HBO Max for free
Another perk of signing up for a $60 per month plan is that you’ll get the ad-supported version of HBO Max thrown in for free. Once you’re signed up to Cricket, all you need to do is open the HBO Max app and select the option to sign in with a provider.
HBO Max is your home for Warner Bros-made movies and TV shows like The Lord of the Rings, the DC Comics superheroes, and more. It’s also the home for new and original movies and shows available nowhere else.
These are the best Cricket Wireless deals currently available. We’ll be sure to update this post with new deals once they are announced. In the meantime, you may be interested in how Cricket compares with other MVNOs such as Mint Mobile, Visible, or Metro by T-Mobile.
