    Ok what's this all about? I called last night for some techy support, and he told me that he could add 300 bonus minutes to my plan free of charge, and when the special is over, there is STILL no charge for the additional 300 bonus minutes per month. I have 450 everything, now that gives me 750 anytime minutes/month.

    Anyone heard of this? I just logged into my Sprint account and sure enough, it shows 300 bonus minues - included... Just want to make sure some charge doesn't show up two three months or more down the road...

    Looks like it is true. Here is my online chat dialogue with the lovely Jessica

    Jessica: Thank you for visiting Sprint. What questions can I answer for you today?

    You: A question about a free bonus you're offering

    Jessica: Please wait while a secure chat connection is established.

    You: hello

    Jessica: I would be happy to help you with your question.

    Jessica: Let's move this chat and make it a window of its own. That way, you'll still see this web page while we chat. Please click 'Yes' to move it now.

    Jessica: Thank you for moving the chat. Just to check, are you currently a Sprint customer?

    You: yes I am

    Jessica: How may I help you?

    You: Well I heard it through the grapevine that Sprint is offering 300 bonus minutes to those who already have a everything data plan

    You: Is that true?

    Jessica: Yes, you can call Customer Care and let them know you want to get the 300 bonus minutes if you already have the Everything Data individual plan. Please call (888) 211-4727 or *2 on your Sprint device. They are open Monday-Friday 6am-12am, Saturday 7am-7pm and Sunday 9am-9pm Central Standard time.

    Wow. I just called them and I asked the rep about it and he said sure hold on let me add them on for you.

    The call took 2 minutes.

    When are "bonus points" used? I noticed the other day I had used 282 out of 450 minutes and 22 of the 300 bonus points. I thought the bonus points were only used if I ran short of my normal minutes (450) but apparently I was wrong.

    Do you track your total minutes used?

    Either way, though, you still appear to have plenty :)

    Yes have plenty but was just curious. Use of wireless cuts back on the minutes I use a lot.

    It's a compulsion. Just not as destructive as my last one. :)

    Mine does show that I used some of the bonus minutes before I used my anytime minutes. Don't know why that is. Maybe you use the bonus minutes first then start the anytime??

  24. Is this a one-time bonus, or does it increase my plan by 300 minutes every month?

    From what I gathered from the article, you get the extra minutes every month.
