Re: What's going on with perks for current and loyal customers?
Those are all reward programs that require minimum costs from the company. We all agree that Cricket should do this. Cricket is actually giving away concert tickets and other merch to customers now. They should expand it but it is going on. No company offers deep discounts on phone sales for loyal customers. That's the point of this thread.
My idea is a rewards program which puts 5 percent of your monthly bill into a rewards program. So if you are on the $60./ month plan $3. per month would be your reward. It would take 3-4 years to obtain the necessary money to get a different phone.
