U.S. Cellular is offering a limited time "Family Switcher Bonus" for new customers who activate at least two lines on a Family Plan. The deal, which runs through April 1, provides consumers with a $300 MasterCard debit card.

The catch? At least one of the new lines must be a smartphone.

To sweeten the deal, U.S. Cellular has discounted a number of smartphones, including the Samsung Galaxy S 3 for $150 and the Huawei Ascend Y , which now sells for just a penny.

What's more, the carrier is tossing in a free 4G LTE Samsung Mobile Hotspot with any smartphone or tablet purchase. Family Plans start as low as $99 for two lines, but vary depending on the amount of allotted monthly data.

Rounding things out, new and existing customers with U.S. Cellular's 4G LTE coverage can sign up for unlimited data plans for $40 per month.
