August 07, 2019

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Aug. 7, 2019 – Sprint (NYSE: S) is showing some serious back-to-school spirit, giving away more than $100,000 to lucky, eligible K-12 school PTAs. And the local community can help determine the winners! By visiting select Sprint stores Friday, Aug. 9, through Sunday, Aug. 11, parents, students and others can cast a vote for a local K-12 school they want to win $5,000. No purchase is necessary to participate.

 

A total of 21 schools in cities such as Kansas City, Las Vegas, New Orleans and Phoenix will be awarded $5,000 each based on voting. After voting, and while supplies last, participants can spin a prize wheel and win their own back-to-school necessities.

 

Here’s how it works:

  • Voting is open to everyone over 18 – no need to be a Sprint customer
  • The list of participating cities and stores can be found here: bit.ly/SprintLocations-BTS.
  • Voting hours at select stores are: 4-8 p.m. on Aug. 9; 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Aug. 10; Noon to 6 p.m. on Aug. 11. (All times are local.)
  • See full promotion rules here bit.ly/SprintRules-BTS.

 

“This is a fun way to celebrate the back-to-school season and give back to schools across the country,” said Steve Gaffney, vice president-Marketing. “We designed this first-time program to make it easy for the community to visit, vote and get involved in how the $100,000 is distributed. And…they also get a chance to win some great prizes for themselves from Sprint while supplies last.”

 

This weekend Sprint also has some sizzling-hot specials at Sprint stores. For example:

  • Friday thru Sunday get $100 for every line activated with a phone purchase or lease when someone switches to Sprint from another wireless carrier. The more lines activated, the more savings.1
  • For a limited time, get a free Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 when you add Unlimited Data for just $25 per month. That’s a savings of $249.99!2
  • And, Sprint will give customers a $130 Prepaid MasterCard virtual account when they purchase or lease select LG phones and purchase an LG Tone wireless headset.3
