There are so many different cell phone providers offering so many different plans to choose from. There are way too many choices, honestly. It’s all too much to take in.
It’s all so overwhelming that most of us tend to stay paralyzed and just stick with our same old provider. No sense rocking the boat.
Here’s a reality check, though: You’re probably paying too much for cell phone service. The average cell phone bill has climbed to nearly $160 a month, according to a recent study by J.D. Power. Holy cow, that’s about $1,900 per year!
It doesn’t have to be that way. We’ve found a reliable discount wireless provider where you’ll pay a lot less by buying service at bulk rates. With Mint Mobile, new phone and service plans start at only $15 per month, and you get the best deals if you sign up for 12 months.
A New Way to Save on Your Cell Phone Bill
Mint Mobile operates on T-Mobile’s nationwide network. It typically uses 5G or 4G LTE data, whichever signal is strongest. All of Mint’s plans include unlimited texting, mobile hotspot and tethering for no additional charge.
Signing up is simple, and transferring your current phone number isn’t a problem, either. You can either bring your own phone or buy one of more than 70 phones from Mint Mobile ranging in price from $50 to $1,899, with monthly payment plans available.
Oh, and even if you’re buying cell service in bulk, there’s a seven-day money back guarantee. You can try Mint Mobile and see if you like it.
How to Get Cheaper Cell Service
Mint offers deeply discounted rates — as long as you’re willing to pay several months in advance. As a new subscriber, you can purchase a three-month plan and choose either 4GB of data for $15 per month; 10GB for $20 per month; 15GB for $25 per month or unlimited for $30 per month.
After three months, you can renew for another 12 months to keep the same monthly rate or opt for a three or six-month renewal plan with slightly higher rates. Mint will even recommend the data plan that’s right for you, based on your usage.
Here’s a chart of their other data plans:
Keep in mind that you can change your plan at any time.
Parents, if you’ve got kids who are asking for phones, Mint Mobile is an astonishingly affordable way to get them cellular service.
If you’re paying $15 to $40 per phone line per month with Mint, that’s probably way less money than you’re paying right now.
Through Jan. 7, new users who buy a three-month plan get an additional three months free. That would be six months of service for $45 — or just $7.50 per month.
