Are you an old Sprint customer that has the free Amazon Prime On Us benefit with your unlimited premium plan? Starting in April, you are going to need to pay up if you want Amazon Prime.
T-Mobile this week started to inform customers that on April 1st, the unlimited plans from Sprint that offered Amazon Prime free will lose that benefit. Affected customers will receive a text message informing them of the change before it happens, according to a help page first spotted by T-Mo Report.
Affected customers will still be able to get Hulu on-demand along with the music service Tidal for free with the plan.
New customers starting earlier this week can no longer get Amazon Prime for free from these old Sprint plans. They can still get all other free offerings like Hulu, Tidal, or pick a plan with free Netflix to name a few.
T-Mobile says on April 3rd, 2023, they will start to notify customers of new benefits that they will be able to take advantage of. It is very likely this is the free Netflix that T-Mobile already offers but it could be something new.
We do not know why Amazon Prime is being cut, but April will mark 3 years since T-Mobile purchased Sprint. T-Mobile had promised not to make any changes to Sprint customers’ plans for 3 years, and it seems that T-Mobile did honor that promise.
