Update: Mint Mobile is currently offering free shipping for all Android Central readers who use the coupon code ACFREESHIP during checkout, saving you a few extra bucks on the already-affordable packages.
Mint Mobile is no stranger around here. We've talked about them a bunch in the past, and even reviewed our experiences with the service, but it's been a bit since we reminded you just how affordable your phone bill can be. The MVNO currently has packages starting at just $45 for three months of service that includes 2GB of high-speed data. That's just $15 a month, which I am pretty sure is a huge savings compared to your current bill.
Not everyone can get away with 2GB of data per month, but that's why Mint Mobile also offers a plan that includes 5GB of data for $60 or 10GB of data for $75 for the three-month period. After the promotional period, each plan does go up by a little, but the prices still remain way under the competition. To put it into perspective, MetroPCS' base plan starts at $30 per month for 2GB of data, and AT&T's base plan offers only 1GB of data for the same monthly cost.
With Mint Mobile being an MVNO that operates on T-Mobile's 4G LTE network, it means that you can likely pop your current SIM card out of your device and simply replace it with one from Mint Mobile. If you're in the market for a new device as well, Amazon's Prime-exclusive devices are a great value, though just about any unlocked phone will do.
From time to time Mint Mobile offers additional discounts, which we keep track of, so be sure to check back on that page every so often to see if you can save a little extra on top of the already-low prices.
