To celebrate the introduction of more Pokémon from the Hoenn region
in Pokémon GO, Sprint delivers a holiday bonus to Trainers when they
sign up for Sprint Unlimited
OVERLAND PARK, Kan.–To ring in the holidays and toast the release of 50 more Pokémon from the Hoenn region, Sprint (NYSE:S) is giving the gift of $100 in
PokéCoins to anyone who signs up for Sprint Unlimited.
’Tis the season to switch, Trainers! This offer
kicks off today, and the math makes sense – $100 equals 14,500
PokéCoins, which gets a Trainer everything they need to maximize their
game play and fill up their Pokédex. The $100 in PokéCoins can be
exchanged for up to 3,600 Poké Balls, 480 Max Revives, 145 Premium Raid
Passes or 96 Incubators.
And it gets even better: When a Trainer (or anyone who appreciates a
reliable network and the best value in wireless) switches to Sprint,
they can get four lines of unlimited data, talk and text for $25 per
month per line and a fifth line free.1 That means Trainers
can play Pokémon GO as much as they like, enjoy HD streaming for video,
music and games and get 10GB of mobile hotspot data all for an
unbeatable value.2 Sprint’s unlimited data plan also includes
the premier video streaming service, Hulu, and a six-month trial of
streaming music with Tidal.3
“This is an amazing and valuable gift for all the U.S. Trainers out
there,” said Roger Solé, Sprint chief marketing officer. “When you
switch to Sprint, you can enjoy all the benefits of Unlimited –
including $100 in PokéCoins plus you can watch your favorite TV shows on
Hulu and listen to streaming music with Tidal. This holiday season,
Sprint is delivering the services you want most from your wireless
