"Marshawn Lynch Is Paying Your Service For A Year" is the headline over at a Beast Mobile landing page right now. The Sprint and AT&T powered MVNO is offering one year of free service to the first 500 customers who buy an unlocked LG K40 from the company for $199.99. Those that do, will have their phone bill paid for a year by the NFL's now unretired RB.
Beast Mobile launched a couple of years ago and is the brainchild of wireless industry vet Leigh Hunt and in collaboration with Marshawn Lynch.
Beast Mobile's Free Year Of Service Offer Fine Print
Beast Mobile only offers two phone plans. One plan for $24/month on the AT&T network, and one plan for $50/month that uses the customer's choice of either AT&T's network or Sprint's. Both plans include unlimited talk and text with taxes and fees included in the prices shown. The $24 plan includes 1GB of hard capped data, and the $50 plan includes unlimited data with the first 10GB each month at 4G LTE data speeds.
Beast Mobile normally charges a $10 activation fee and a $5 number porting fee to new subscribers. Those fees are being waived for this promo.
The plan being paid for by Lynch is the $24 plan on the AT&T network. The amount of data included with the plan is a small amount, but customers can add more to their plans at any time if needed at the following rates:
100MB LTE Data - $1.00
500MB LTE Data - $5.00
1GB LTE Data - $10.00
5GB LTE Data - $50.00
Customers can also use the Beast Mobile app to accumulate more data. Beast Mobile subscribers can use the app to earn credits for taking surveys, watching ads, or engaging with personalized offers. The credits earned for doing so are immediately applied to the subscriber's account and can be redeemed for more data.
