Sprint is having the first officially recorded giveaway that uses the new promo codes feature! The giveaway is US and Android only and it marks the first recorded occurrence of promo code usage by Niantic and their partners.
Sprint is giving away Great Balls, Lucky Eggs and Incense items and it is required to visit a Sprint store in order to get your promo code.
These promo codes will be given away at local Sprint stores and will be valid for one time usage, only to Sprint customers.
- Update #1 (17:14 UTC): it seems that Sprint doesn’t have the codes just yet. A redditor went into a Sprint store, showed them this article and their official response was: “call or come back later, we should have them in a few hours”! – source
- Update #2 (17:27 UTC): Sprint confirms that the offer is valid only for Android users at this point. – source (Tweet)
This giveaway is a part of their official My Trainer Rewards partnership program with Niantic.
The event is taking place at 200 Sprint stores in the United States and it’s on while supplies last. In addition, remember that this giveaway is for Android users only.
As we’ve previously reported, Apple doesn’t allow usage of promotional codes through iOS apps. No alternative has been given for Trainers using iPhones.
The official event information can be found here. The summary of the event is as follows:
