Boost Mobile Allowing All Phones to Be Insured for the Month of May
Typically if you want to insure your smartphone, you must do so within 14-30 days of purchasing it. Usually once that time period has passed, you are no longer able to insure your device. For the month of May, Boost Mobile is giving a break to customers that have let that time pass. Boost Mobile is giving all their customers the opportunity to insure their devices, no matter how long ago they were purchased. The insurance will cost you $5 per month to insure any Boost Mobile device. Boost Mobile is offering this promotion until May 31st.
IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Boost Mobile, a leader in the no-contract wireless industry with award-winning service plans, will provide its Monthly Unlimited customers a unique opportunity to sign up for phone insurance regardless of when they purchased their phone. Boost Mobile’s existing phone insurance is $5 a month and is generally offered during a 15-day enrollment window after a new handset purchase. During the entire month of May, Boost customers now have a second chance to protect their investment and enroll in phone insurance.
“Highest Ranked in Purchase Experience Among Non-Contract Wireless Providers”
“Boost customers don’t need to stress if they forgot to add phone insurance when they purchased their latest device,” said Andre Smith, vice president-Boost Mobile. “As our devices become more sophisticated, we want to present compelling opportunities to encourage our customers to protect their hard-earned investment.”
Although phone insurance is not offered by all wireless carriers, it has become increasingly important for customers with no annual contracts, driven by the surge of more expensive smartphone devices now being offered. According to a recent study conducted by Nielsen, nearly half of the no-contract gross adds in the first quarter of 2012 were on smartphones1. Based on historical trends, nearly one in four of these customers will lose or damage their device in the next year2. With phone insurance, customers can stay connected with friends, family members and co-workers if they ever lose or damage their phone.
Boost offers a selection of quality handsets ranging from entry-level to a growing number of Android™-powered smartphones, including the Samsung Replenish™ priced at $99.99 (excluding taxes) and LG Marquee™ priced at $249.99 (excluding taxes), which launched earlier this year.
This limited-time offer is available now through May 31. To add phone insurance, Monthly Unlimited customers can visit one of Boost Mobile’s nationwide retail locations, go towww.boostmobile.com or call customer care at 888-266-7848. Customers who act quickly will get the benefit of having a predictable solution in case their phone gets lost, damaged or stolen.
