Are you tired of paying so much for your current phone service but nervous about switching to something new? Mint Mobile was created to help you save on service without compromising on what you need from your phone company, and thanks to a current sale at Amazon, you can try out the service (opens in new tab) for only $0.99 today! The Mint Mobile Starter Kit (opens in new tab) is currently 80% off and helps you test out and get started on the network. If you decide to join Mint Mobile after the trial, you'll even receive a $5 discount towards your service to make up for the cost of the starter kit.

Mint Mobile is powered by T-Mobile's 4G LTE network, yet there's no long-term contract to sign or worry about as all of its plans are prepaid. You can use a device you already own and your current number when signing up, too. Learn more about the service at Mint Mobile's website.

Try out Mint Mobile before you buy a regular plan. This starter kit comes with two SIM cards, including one to test for 7 days and another to use if you keep the service. The test includes 100MB of 4G LTE data, 100 texts, and 100 minutes of talk.

This starter kit comes with two SIM cards: one to test your phone on the network for seven days and a second to use if you decide to keep the service after the trial. With the trial, your phone will have access to 100MB of 4G LTE data, 100 text messages to send, and 100 minutes of calling so you can put Mint Mobile through its paces and see how it runs in your area. Once you've decided to keep it, you can choose a plan and use the second SIM card to transfer your current phone number to Mint or keep your new number using the first SIM card.

Mint Mobile offers unlimited talk and text with every plan it has, as well as 4G LTE high speed data and nationwide coverage. It also allows for free international calls to Mexico and Canada, and the ability to turn your mobile device into a hotspot. The SIM Card Kit will help you get your phone on the network so you can start calling and texting your friends and family. Plans start at just $15 per month and are prepaid so there are never any contracts to deal with.

  • I use Mint Mobile for two accounts - very good service and the most reasonable I've been able to find.
