Sprint ups their referral bonus to $125


When you’re bleeding out around a million customers per quarter, what do you do? Give people money.

At least, that’s Sprint’s plan. From now until March 31st (the end of the first quarter of 2009. What a coincidence!), Sprint has increased the chunk of change they give you when you sell out convince your friend to hop on a contract. Previously, they’d give both of you $25 bucks – now your friend still gets $25 bucks, while you walk away with a cool $100.

The setup is kind of complex, but as the late Notorious B.I.G once said, “Mo money, Mo Problems”. First, you send your friends a referral link from this page. Once they’ve signed up, your friend dials #REF from their new Sprint line (by 3/31, or within 15 days of activation), tells the rep your mobile number, and BAM! You’re both a bit richer. Well, you will be when the Visa gift cards arrive 6-8 weeks later.
