Promotional sales may be a dime a dozen in the cell phone industry, but for a lot of people, every little bit helps. AT&T-owned Cricket Wireless gets in the spirit of back-to-school with a limited-time promotion that trims back costs on several of its prepaid phones.

Depending on the device in question, Cricket will reduce the cost for new customers, and possibly add a $50 mail-in rebate besides.

Phones include the Nokia Lumia 630 , which winds up being free after the discounts, Lumia 520 , and 1320 ; the ZTE Prelude , Sonata , and Overture ; Samsung Galaxy Express 4G ; and the Motorola Moto G .
