Buy 3 months of Mint Mobile service, get 3 months free

This non-binding offer is a great way to test Mint Mobile for less.

Buying a new Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and need service to go with it? Don’t like the price or performance of your current operator? Looking for a super cheap plan for your backup phone? You are at the right Cheapskate.

For a limited time, phone carrier Mint Mobile is offering a BOGO (buy-one-get-one) deal: Buy 3 months of service, get 3 months free. Total cost: only $60. Note that CNET may get a share of the revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

This deal gets you Mint’s 8GB 4G LTE plan, which means you get 8GB of high-speed data per month and unlimited calls and texts. If you decide to continue, it will be at the regular rate.

This rate varies depending on whether you purchase 3, 6 or 12 months of service at a time. (That’s Mint Mobile’s “thing” – prepaid blocks.) The regular 3-month rate is $105, which works out to $35 per month. If you choose the 6 month option, it comes to $25 per month (so $150 in total). And at 12 months, it’s $240 – $20 per month.

There are also cheaper and more expensive tiers, offering 3GB and 12GB of LTE data respectively. I guess most users will be fine with 8GB, but obviously that’s up to you.

To use Mint, you need an unlocked phone that supports GSM carrier bands. Apparently it’s AT&T and T-Mobile, but many newer phones, such as the 2018 iPhone models, should work even if they were originally sold on Sprint and Verizon plans. Mint uses the T-Mobile network, so if it has good coverage in your area, Mint will too. If not, you’ll probably want to look at other options.

Although I haven’t used the service myself, I’ve written about it several times, and most readers have said they’re extremely happy with it. (Your mileage may vary, of course.) Here’s your chance to try it for six months for just $60.

Bonus Offer: Don’t Hate Me For Another Wireless Earbuds Sale

So, yes, yesterday’s Criacr true wireless earbuds deal was a bust. It sold out within minutes, and I am told that, unfortunately, there will be no more of this product at this price. (Not from this seller, anyway.) Obviously, I’ll keep an eye out for equally amazing deals, but for now…

Amazon has the TaoTronics TT-BH053 True Wireless Bluetooth 5.0 Earbuds for $34.99 when you clip the $10 off coupon on the page. They’re normally $10 more, natch — and already a $45 flight.

Physically, these are much closer to the Apple AirPods, but a little less ostentatious thanks to their matte black color. They have a respectable 4.1-star average from over 1,000 customers, and CNET’s David Carnoy found them “better than you’d expect” (given the price) in his TT-BH053 review.

I know $35 isn’t $13, but this is yet another example of how you can get a very decent set of truly wireless earbuds for a very decent price. If it hadn’t been for yesterday’s affair, I would be making a lot more noise about it.
