It's no secret that
As that loss is far from an isolated incident, it's not surprising Sprint is now offering existing customers a $100 referral fee for bringing new subscribers to the carrier. All you need to do is enter the names and e-mail addresses of up 12 of your friends on a special Web site. Sprint will send the chosen few an e-mail inviting them to switch and you'll get your money after they have service for 30 days.
Though the idea of a $100 prize--or a $1,200 prize if all 12 of your friends switch--sounds attractive, I wonder if it's worth irritating your pals with a nagging e-mail from Sprint. Sure, they'll get a $25 Visa gift certificate if they make the jump, but I'd still check with them first.
