There aren’t too many deals to dig into, but that’s because Mint offers everyday low prices. We’ll take you through some of our favorites, and you can check out the carrier’s best phones, too.
Featured deal: Get six months of free service when you buy a phone
Mint Mobile is all about flexibility, with cheap plans and the ability to bring your own phone to the network. However, if you need to purchase a new device too then there’s an added incentive to switch to Mint. It announced its Devices Program today, which gives you six months of free service when you purchase an eligible phone and a six-month plan.

The deal relates to the 4GB per month plan, which is usually $15 each month. So what you’re really getting is $90 of credit after your initial six-month plan. That translates to another six months on the cheapest plan, but you don’t need to commit to that plan to take advantage of the deal. For instance, if you were paying $20 per month for the 10GB plan, then you’d get $90 off the $240 you’d pay for the second six-month contract.
It’s an Apple-centric deal, with the three phones featured being the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, and iPhone SE. Taking the last phone as an example, you’ll get the iPhone SE and 12 months of the 4GB plan for a total of just $489. Not bad at all.

Lock up a low rate with a 12-month plan
We all love Mint for its incredibly low monthly rates. After all, who can say no to a phone bill for just $15 per month? However, the lowest monthly rates are only valid for the first three months of your plan. At least, unless you sign up for service 12-months at a time.
If you commit to a year-long contract with Mint, you can lock up your low introductory rate with no extra hoops to jump through. That means the basic 4GB plan stays $15 per month, and even the exciting unlimited plan will cost you just $30 per month for the year. Of course, you can opt for a slightly shorter six-month contract, but you won’t save quite as much.
If you grab the half-year plan, you can expect to pay an extra $5 per month on each plan. That makes the 4GB plan $20 per month, and the unlimited option tops out at $35. The good news is that it’s still cheaper than most unlimited plans on the market.
Save $50 on select Android devices

Now, you won’t get to choose from the full menu of phones, but there are some solid budget options. Google’s Pixel 4a 5G and Samsung’s Galaxy A71 5G lead the charge, or you can head for the more affordable route.

Bundle your iPhone with premium wireless coverage

One last Mint Mobile deal that you may want to consider brings a whopping two years of mobile coverage together with a new iPhone. You can choose from the budget-friendly iPhone SE or the pocket-ready iPhone 12 Mini, and link it with whichever Mint plan you please. The SE will set you back just $15 per month while the 64GB iPhone 12 Mini runs at $30 per month.

Once you work in the cost of your plan, you can expect to pay between $30 and $60 per month in total. Of course, this does lock you into two years of Mint’s premium service, so you won’t have to worry about future price increases. With that in mind, the iPhone 12 Mini may be the better buy for its future-proof 5G access. Learn more at the buttons below:
