Yes, you read that correctly folks, Sprint are giving away Great Balls, Lucky Eggs, and Incense as part of their brand new giveaway. The only catch is that you must first go in-store to obtain these goodies!
We’re not sure yet how many of each item will be available per person, but hey, free items are free items, so no complaining! As well as the Great Balls, Lucky Eggs, and Incense, you will also earn 200 Trainer Rewards points, which can be used to redeem other prizes.
For those unfamiliar with Trainer Rewards, it’s an initiative set up by Sprint & Boost Mobile that rewards Pokemon GO players with gift cards and other rewards when they complete certain actions and tasks. You can check it out by clicking here.
As for this giveaway, the official post reads: “PRIZE: Pokémon GO Code for Great Balls, Lucky Eggs and Incense. *Requires Android Smartphone to redeem code. Data rates may apply.” Sadly, there is no mention of when this event will begin or end.
It should be noted that since the official post references redeeming a code, that this giveaway will probably be the first to take advantage of the new promo code feature that was recently added to Pokemon GO. If this giveaway is a success, we could see more events using the promo code functionality, which would be fantastic.
Finally, in the small print, it makes it very clear that this giveaway is for Android device users only. This could be due to the fact that, according to many sources, Apple prohibit the use of promo codes in apps distributed through their service. This sucks, but it is what it is.
Hopefully Niantic will come up with a creative way to bypass this Apple ban on promo codes, but until then, it looks like Android users will be enjoying an advantage. This post will be updated as soon as more details emerge about the start and end dates of the event.
But what do you think about this? Sprint are giving away Great Balls, Lucky Eggs, and Incense, but since it’s limited to in-store entries only, will you be able to enter? And what do you think about the Android only aspect of this giveaway? As always, let me know what you think in the comment section below!
