    No 1/2 Price Gift Card this month?

    Oh well...

    Also, I just noticed they have Google Play gift cards. Is this new? Hope they discount these sometimes.

    Bet they ended the 1/2 price cards. They even reduced the check-in points. The whole reward system is a gimmicky retention model. Its like $0.0005 per point.

    yeah I noticed too that there was no 1/2 price card. I think I will save my points and hope that there is a special every once and awhile where I can unload for Cricket $ credits at 1/2 off

    The squeeze continues... Pretty obvious that there's some belt tightening going on at Cricket. ($25 Phone Fee, etc). If it has to be done, I'm glad it's around the edges instead of a rate increase.

    I suspect there was also some "you're making us look bad" from ATT. Of course the approach is to lower Cricket rather than elevate ATT's game.

    Yep. Got about $800 in just 8 or 9 months(2 accounts).

    Looks like they nipped that in the bud real quick though.

    Still a good deal on Cricket refills. Just harder/longer to accumulate points though.

    Hopefully they increase points for check ins over the holidays.

    The problem with that is most 1/2 price GC's are limited to one. No point in stockpiling 10's of thousands of points. I'm just going to use mine on refills from here on out.

    As stated above, the chances of getting more than 1(one) $5 refill at half price are slim to none.

    That is if they do any more half price deals.

    The way things are going, I'm worried about even the presently discounted refills disappearing!

    I used all my points on refills and ported out of Cricket, for a short period, to get in on a deal at Metro.

    Will probably port back in next month. Hopefully by then Cricket may have some hot port in deals.

    T-Mobile/Metro network works much better here for me in Atl, Ga. Cricket headquarters, ironically.

    Agree, that's why I immediately use up most of my points on refills. Given they've reduced check in points, reduced number of game plays per day, and some bonus points, I wouldn't be surprised if they start jacking up the points to get a gift card.
