    Could be SPAM or someone "Phishing" you. Until you confirm with either the store or customer service, I suggest you don't click any links. It looks official, but could be a hoax with a hidden Trojan Horse/Worm attached.
    Don't make me turn this car around.....

    The URL is legit - apparently Cricket has been sending out these offers to people on some of the lower-tier plans - on the web page, it doesn't say that you need go in-store, just to upgrade - here's where it forwards to:
    https://www.cricketwireless.com/lega...et-more-credit

    It sounds very similar to this:

    If it is in-store only, I wonder if this promotion is still very very early and some stores haven't heard about it?

    So it is real based on ecs0013's post. After reading the offer, I guess it works like this.....
    I'm spending $35 monthly now for 5gb. The upgrade will cost me $60 per month for 2 months. Then I get a $10 discount bring my
    cost to $50 per month and with autopay, another $5 credit making the $45 my monthly cost for the Unlimited plus hotspot plan?
