Sprint has announced two new options for Boost Mobile customers to save $5 on their monthly bills as part of what Sprint describes as Boost Mobile’s “best value in its history.”

Boost Mobile is a Sprint brand that offers prepaid plans. Boost Mobile customers who download a free app called “Boost Dealz” can earn a $5 credit for each month the app is active on their phone, according to Sprint. The app displays ads on the “unlock” page of customers’ phones.

Boost Mobile’s site explains:

It will display special offers each time you swipe the lock screen. To earn your $5 credit, just keep the app running in the background for 30 days. Easy as that. Plus, you can choose which type of deals you want to see.

A Sprint spokesperson tells Money Talks News that the $5 credit “can be used to reduce (the customer’s) monthly payment or spent on add-ons such as games, music, additional data, etc. It’s the customer’s choice.”

The Boost Dealz app is currently available for phones that run on the Android operating system.

Boost Mobile customers who enroll in a second promotion can get a $5 monthly discount on their bill each month. To qualify, a customer must enroll in an automatic payment method called “Auto Re-Boost.” This involves registering a credit card, debit card or bank account with Boost Mobile that will be used for automatic monthly payments.

The Sprint spokesperson confirmed to Money Talks News that customers can take advantage of both promotions at the same time, and thus cut their monthly Boost Mobile costs by $10.

Other Boost Mobile offers announced this week include:

  • The launch of family plan options: These include two lines — each with unlimited talk, text and data and 5 gigabytes of high-speed data — for $70 per month. Adding lines — with unlimited talk, text and data and 1.5 GB of high-speed data — costs $90 per month for three lines, or $100 for four lines. This offer is available only until April 5.
  • Up to two free smartphones for new customers who activate a family plan in participating Boost Mobile retail stores. This offer is also available only until April 5.

Sprint’s offer comes as competition is heating up among wireless carriers, with consumers — and their wallets — poised to gain.

Two weeks ago, AT&T announced a new unlimited data plan, calling it the company’s best offer yet. Last week, Verizon announced its new “FreeBee Data” plans, which give customers a new way to save on data costs.
