The iPhone SE deals are flowing already, and in typical fashion Mint Mobile is here to knock the socks off all the other options out there. For a limited time, new customers can get the iPhone SE with service (opens in new tab) for just $30 per month. That's right, it's the phone, financed over 24 months, plus Mint Mobile's 3GB data plan. You can move to the 8GB plan for $5 more per month, or up to the 12GB one for $10 more per month, making the prices $35 or $40 per month total respectively.

We've seen Mint Mobile offer some pretty great deals in the past, and this one is definitely in line with those. It does only apply to new customers, but existing customers can purchase the device and finance it from Mint Mobile instead if they wish.

Mint Mobile

iPhone SE + Mint Mobile service

This limited-time promotion scores you Apple's newest (and most affordable) iPhone paired with Mint Mobile's great service for one low monthly cost.

For those who prefer to prepay for everything, Mint has another promotion for you. The carrier is letting you prepay the full amount for the phone plus service (opens in new tab) for as little as $720. The details for that are:

What's better than 1 year of Mint service? Two years of Mint service. When you purchase your iPhone SE plus two years of service, you'll receive your phone along with a SIM card for 12 months. Within 72 hours after you activate Mint service, we'll add a credit to your account for the second year of service. Your plan will renew automatically at the start of your second year.

If you aren't familiar with the new iPhone SE, you'll want to check out our review. The TL;DR of it is that it's a familiar iPhone 8 design that's been repacked with some new internals, including an A13 Bionic chip, upgraded single lens camera system, and more.

Be sure to grab one using this deal now!

Jared started off writing about mobile phones back when BlackBerry ruled the market, and Windows Mobile was kinda cool. Now, with a family, mortgage and other responsibilities he has no choice but to look for the best deals, and he's here to share them with you.
  • When you do the math, it's only a $39 discount on the phone, not exactly the crazy deal you are describing.
  • Yup, great deal on the surface but MintSIM (their original name) will heavily de-prioritize you in favor of regular T-Mobile traffic throughout the day. If you don't mind missing calls/texts, then having your phone explode with notifications an hour later, go for it. It took me only 3 weeks to decide their dirt cheap rates just aren't worth it.
  • I have none of those problems with Mint Mobile, download speeds are a little slower, but otherwise the service is great calls, text, MMS are all indistinguishable from postpaid.
  • Guess his experience differs from yours then, huh... how crazy is that...
