Yeah, it can take ~25 or so minutes to run through all the instant win sweeps, counting all the XTRA ones. I never “spin”, just hit “skip” to reveal the result (usually “sorry, try again” e.g.). I found it’s a little faster using their WinIt phone app than a computer. It’s a secondary activity during TV commercials etc. Won 5,000 points this evening, whoo-hoo!
@fivetalents I purchased three of the 360 day Red Pocket 100min/100text/500MB data plans. I received activation numbers via email within a couple of hours and SIM kits about a week later. The SIM kits contained GSM cards for AT&T, T-Mobile, and a single CMDA card for use on either Sprint or Verizon networks. Each activation number will activate only one of the three cards provided. (When one card is activated the other two cards become invalid.) By definition, an unlocked GSM-only phone will not accept CDMA SIM cards; And, while unlocked CDMA/GSM phones accept GSM cards they may not provide full LTE coverage. As an example, an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 G930P (Sprint) will only support two of the four channels used by the T-Mobile network. I don’t know if an unlocked Samsung Galaxy S7 G930T (T-Mobile) will accept any CDMA SIM cards, but I had no problem using Red Pocket T-Mobile SIM cards in my carrier-locked T-Mobile phone. As I alluded in another post, there is a difference between carrier-locks and boot-loader locks. Boot-loader locks are installed on some pre-paid phones to prevent discounted, low-cost phones from being used with another plan.
Thanks so much for the detailed and informative reply. I want to activate an old CDMA Sprint phone (Galaxy Note 5) that does not have SIM cards and would never have been boot loader locked as it was released for post-paid plans. Maybe I need to ask Sprint to release the phone/remove their carrier lock before Red Pocket will recognize it as a 4G device but that seems unlikely since I don’t think Sprint would lock a phone for use with 3G but keep it locked for 4G.
@daddypacman Many posters are just in it for the post count. They never come back to update posts.
Updated post With a simple PM to me I would have updated quicker
His /her responsibility to download the rebate form every day to ensure no changes have been made? LOL. It was accurate when posted and it is MY responsibility to look for changes before I make a purchase. (And to not throw a tantrum if something does.)
Got this $15 back on $30 at Sam’sdotcom offer in my primary BCE, OBC and all AU cards. This may be the best time to renew my SC membership with this MM deal where profits will pay for membership. I just wished they bring back the variable $500s in-store. I saw vanilla GCs are sold online and GCs are not excluded under terms; still MM after fees although it may take a while to drain these.
Out of the three options: Windex Distinct, Balance, or Exceptional Performance, which one are you guys getting? Maybe cheapest is just as good? I live in the West and it doesn’t rain all too much here.
