Boost Mobile has begun offering the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c today, the first time the prepaid subsidiary of Sprint has offered any model of the iPhone to its customers.
While Boost’s standard pricing available online already includes a $100 discount on every model compared to Apple’s standard pricing for unsubsidized models, the carrier is offering an additional $100 off through November 24 to customers who are switching from another carrier and who make their purchases at one of the brand’s retail stores.
The in-store promotion brings the cost of the entry-level 16 GB model of the iPhone 5s down to $449.99, and the 16 GB iPhone 5c down to $349.99. Boost Mobile offers a contract free $55 a month unlimited talk/text/data plan, however data is throttled once a user hits 2.5 GB of usage in any given month.
One unique facet of Boost Mobile’s service is that customers can reduce their monthly payments by making sure to pay their bill on time, as Boost Mobile will reduce a customer’s monthly charge by $5 for every six payments made on time. This can drop their payment down to as low as $40 after 18 months.
