ATLANTA, May 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third straight year, Cricket returns as presenting sponsor of the 2016 BET Awards Afterparty Live Post Show. We're again giving music fans a chance to win an all-expense paid trip for two to experience one of America's biggest celebrations of music, acting and sports.
From May 4-31, consumers can enter the 2016 VIP BET Awards Weekend Sweepstakes by visiting any Cricket Wireless store, participating GameStop stores or online at www.cricketsweepstakes.com/BET16.
Cricket will award the VIP grand prize winner with airfare and a four-day, three-night stay in Los Angeles for two. The winner will also receive $500 in spending money, two tickets to two BET Experience concerts at the Staples Center, two tickets to the 2016 BET Awards and two passes to the Afterparty Live Post-Show Green Room Lounge. But that's not all. The winner also gets to take home a new Samsung Galaxy S7 with one year of Cricket Wireless service. In addition, the winner will enjoy a one-year free subscription of Deezer music service. All of this on Cricket's reliable network, which provides more 4G LTE coverage than T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Sprint or Boost.*
