@maren273 Thank you for visiting and posting on the Cricket Community Forum! Below we have provide the link on how to successfully set up refer a friend. We apologize for any inconvenience you have experienced.
I followed the instructions months ago, however, the text messages I sent to other friends never registered, And now that I walked 2 new customers personally into a Cricket store and helped them signing up for brand new service, Cricket still refuses to give my friend and me the 'refer a friend" sign-up bonus. I feel mocked.
Unfortunately, once your friend received the referral code they needed to click the link and enter their email address. A unique referral code is emailed to them,without this code the system will not generate the credits for the program.
That is actually incorrect. I was right next to both of them when they received the code. Since they already were Cricket Customers at that time (and again, I had sent the codes before they switched from Verizon or Virgin Mobile), the code did not work and asked them instead to refer their friends. When will we be seeing those refer-a-friend credits? Or is this just a big scam?
Cell Phones, Plans and Service from Cricket
Top Reasons to Choose Cricket
How to Pick a Cell Phone Service
1. Review your most recent cell phone bill
Look for opportunities to save. In particular, take note of:
How much you're paying per line - Do you have a multi-line cell phone plan? What kind of discount are you getting? Could you save more by switching? Cricket's family and group plan offers a discount for each extra line up to the fifth line - so you could get 5 lines with 2 GB of high-speed data each for as little as $130/mo - as long as all 5 lines are on the $40/mo plan. Discounts apply to lines 2-5.
How much data you use - Do you burn through all of your high-speed data too soon? Do you always have lots of data to spare? Ideally, you don't want to get too little or too much. Cricket has a variety of cell phone plans to fit any lifestyle, so you can choose a cell phone plan that's just right.
Any surprise taxes or fees (which can really add up) - With Cricket, taxes are included in your bill, so you know exactly what to expect. For a list of our current fees, view our Charges & Fees page.
2. Decide how satisfied you are with your current cell phone
"Bring Your Own Phone" BYOP - If you want to keep your phone, bring it to Cricket - just make sure it's unlocked and compatible with our network.
