Sprint’s newest discount plan is available on eBay. Its customers put it there.
The Sprint Framily Plan gives bigger discounts to customers for adding more customers to their plans. Go it alone and pay $55 a month for the basic plan. Bring at least six others aboard and each member pays only $25 a month.
Some customers are hunting for additional Framily members by offering their plan ID numbers on eBay.
Sprint spokeswoman Melinda Tiemeyer said the company doesn’t endorse the eBay practice, or recruiting on Twitter or Facebook (in case you hadn’t thought of those ideas).
But she said in an email, “It can work. Since everyone gets their own bill, Framily members do not need to know each other.”
