Sprint is fixing Samsung Galaxy phone screens for $49 regardless of carrier

The one thing that everyone with a smartphone fears is the dreaded cracked screen. If you’ve used smartphones for a while, there’s a very good chance it has happened to you. While it is technically possible to repair a cracked screen on your own or have someone else do it, most people don’t. One of the big reasons for that is cost, but Sprint is fixing that for several recent Samsung Galaxy models.

Sprint is offering $50 screen repairs for a number of recent Samsung Galaxy phones. That alone is pretty awesome, but it gets better: it doesn’t matter if you’re on another carrier. The deal is running now through February 9th, 2020. Here is the list of eligible Galaxy devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy S7
  • Samsung Galaxy S8
  • Samsung Galaxy S8+
  • Samsung Galaxy S9
  • Samsung Galaxy S9+
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 8

You’re out of luck if you have the Galaxy S10, Note 9, or Note 10, unfortunately. Still, Sprint’s list includes some of the most popular phones of the last few years. $50 is a crazy affordable price to have your screen repaired. For comparison, uBreakiFix, a popular repair shop, would charge $200 to repair the Galaxy S9. The only catch is customers are limited to one screen repair and you may not get same-day service.

Why is Sprint doing this? Of course, it’s not purely out of goodwill. The company will give you $150 toward a new phone if your broken device is not on the list. If you do happen to have a broken Galaxy device from the list, be sure to take advantage of this great offer.
