You already know about locking in the $30/month unlimited plan by paying for a year of service, but let’s take a look at alternative pricing and deals for Mint Mobile. Check out the normal prices for Mint Mobile plans for comparison:
Without accounting for any promotions or deals, here’s what Mint Mobile’s pricing looks like for the unlimited plan.
The more months of service you pay for in advance, the cheaper monthly rate you get. You should definitely take advantage of the three-month, introductory discount before committing to anything long term. Take the time to see for yourself if you get decent coverage and data speeds with Mint.
If you’re a new customer to Mint Mobile, you can get 50% off 12 months of service when you bundle with an eligible phone. Don’t worry, you don’t need to buy some obscure Mint Mobile phone to get the deal. Popular devices like the Apple iPhone 13 and Samsung Galaxy models will work.
To get the deal, you’ll just need to pick the 12-month plan and add a new phone to your cart. Six months of service should automatically deduct from your total on check out.
Mint Mobile runs a referral program that gets you a free year of service for every five referrals you bring in. What’s nice is that you don’t need to refer five people to get anything back, just one referral will give you a $25 credit. Sadly the referral credit only slightly increases from there:
In total, five referrals would add up to $240 in renewal credit, which covers a year of service. You max out at 10 referrals in a year, and if you can keep that pace up, you won’t need to pay for your cell service at all. But let’s be honest, who actually convinces that many people to sign up for a cell phone plan? Maybe just shoot for five friends for now, and you can make five friends again next year.
