If one was short on cash and had a lot of older relatives who look to you for gadget advice, a lesser man might take Sprint up on their $100 new customer referral reward.

If you refer someone to a (two-year?) Sprint contract of some sort, your buddy gets $25 and you get $100. Sprint even offers one of those obnoxious "fill in everyone's email address you know" pages to get you started.


Up to 12 people can be referred for a total of $1,200 (in Visa gift cards). That score may or may not be enough to fund your own two-year cellphone plan. [Sprint via BGR]
