There are quite a few options when it comes to carriers for your smartphone, and odds are you're shopping around for the best deal. Postpaid plans are a good option for some, but prepaid plans get you the lowest price, as long as you're willing to put your money down first.

Mint Mobile is an alternative carrier that uses T-Mobile's 4G LTE network to bring you great coverage at an even more affordable price. In the past, going prepaid with an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) often meant that you sacrificed a lot when it came to your plan, but that isn't the case anymore. With Mint Mobile you can pick data allotments of 2GB, 5GB, or even 10GB, depending on your usage habits, and all of the plans come with unlimited talk and text as well.

Mint SIM Coupon Codes

Mint Mobile hasn't offered many coupons recently, but now the company is back with one. Entering coupon coupon ACFREESHIP during checkout will score you free shipping on your SIM card order, which helps save a few extra bucks on the already-affordable purchase.

Current Mint Mobile offers

Mint Mobile has some of the best prices in the MVNO space, and has made a name for itself because of it — read our review for more! With plans starting at just $15 a month for three months, it's becoming much harder to justify spending hundreds of dollars for phone service these days. The carrier has three different introductory offers available to new customers, based on how much data you anticipate using monthly.

The base package is $45 for three months and includes 2GB of data per month. You can step up to 5GB per month for $60 total, or 10GB per month for $75 for the three month period. After the introductory period, the monthly cost does go up by a few bucks, but even at the regular price these deals from Mint Mobile are hard to beat.

It should come as no surprise that Mint Mobile is getting in on the Black Friday action, but one has to wonder just how much lower the company can bring its prices. Beating its already-affordable offers, Mint Mobile is blowing out off doors on the wireless market by offering three months of service with 5GB of data for just $20 total. That's just $6.66 a month. Insane? We think so.

Normally, Minto Mobile offers its 5GB plan for $20 per month, meaning that with this limited time offer you're essentially getting two months of service for free. Other carriers charge upwards of $75 per month for 5GB of data on a single line. In addition to the 5GB of high-speed data, you also get unlimited talk and text each month, for all those times you need to make phone calls.

From time to time Mint Mobile does offer discounts on these prices. We've seen the 2GB plan drop down to just $10 a month for the first three months, and we've also seen the company offer free shipping on its SIM cards. There is a 7-day money back guarantee available, so if you're not satisfied with the service Mint Mobile will give you back the cash you laid out to try it. Mint Mobile also offers a Starter Kit which is just $5 and comes with 7 days of service with 100 minutes, 100 texts, and 100MB of 4G LTE data so you can test the service in your area.
