Mint Mobile ran a Super Bowl ad last year. Instead of running an ad this year, they are taking out a NY Times ad instead annoucining they are giving away their 3 Month T&T/3GB plan (Normally $45) for free to new customers to get them to try the service. It says you have 45 days to activate. Runs on T-Mobile Network. You can sign up starting this Sunday at 6:15 p.m. to coincide with the Super Bowl kickoff. It says the offer ends at the final whistle of the game.

SIM card expires on March 19th

Offer expires midnight pst

Quote from BeautifulPlastic691 :
So ANY unlocked GSM phone will work?
Not so much. Voice will work, but like any other GSM service - different carriers have different LTE bands, so if you want data to work well you need to get a phone that has the right LTE bands for that carrier.

Device compatibility
Quick tip! Easily check your phone's compatibility with our network using the IMEI Status Check. No need to compare network frequencies or device lists!
https://www.t-mobile.com/resource...-own-phone

Frequencies that can provide LTE: Band 2 (1900 MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz), Band 5 (850 MHz), Band 12 (700 MHz), Band 66 (Extension of band 4 on 1700/2100 MHz), Band 71 (600 MHz).
https://www.t-mobile.com/support/...le-network

What are the requirements for the free 3-month plan?

One plan per household. Credit card required. You must activate within 45 days of purchase. 3 months of service start at the time of activation. No additional purchase is required. New activations only.

Already a Mint customer? Sorry this promo is for new customers only, however, it's the perfect time to get your family member or roommate to join the movemint.

Is this plan actually FREE or are there hidden fees?

No games here. This 3-month 3GB plan is 100% on us. There is just a $0.01 temporary payment verification to verify the credit card used is valid. And even that will be refunded within 5-7 business days.

When does this free offer start?
When does this offer end?

The offer ends when the final whistle in the big game blows. We're thinking that'll be around 7:15 pm PST.
What happens after my 3 free months?

When your 3 free months are up, you can choose to renew with a 3, 6, or 12-month plan and keep the wireless savings going.

Mint Tip: Get our best monthly price by renewing for 12 months.

Is the 3GB of 4G LTE data per month?

Yes, it's per month. With a 3-month, 3GB Mint plan, you'll get 3GB of 4G LTE data (with unlimited data at lower speeds) each month, for the 3 months.

Any unused data does not roll over, though. It resets at the end of your data cycle.
What if I need more than 3GB of data per month?
Can I use the free plan later?

Sure. You have up to 45 days from your plan's delivery date to activate your SIM card. If you're locked in with your current *expensive* carrier, you can buy today and activate when you're ready to switch. Buying today won't impact your current service.

Can I bring my own phone?
Can I keep my number?

Yes, you can keep your number when you join Mint. To transfer your current phone number, simply select the option 'Transfer My Number' during activation. Unfortunately, once a plan is activated, we can't transfer your number, so make sure you do it at activation.

We suggest prepping before activation as you'll need some information from your old carrier:

Your current account number. This can be found on your billing statement, or just hit them up to get it
The corresponding password, pass code or PIN code number.
The billing address associated with the account.

T&C of 3 Free Months Promo

Eligibility requirements apply. Please see eligibility requirements below prior to purchase. Bonus period comes in the form of stored value. 3mos/3GB and 6mos/3GB plans only. Taxes and fees apply. Payment for entire subscription period required during promotion window. Not combinable with other offers and not eligible for Ultra Starter Kits. Plans must be activated within 45 days of purchase. If data limits are exceeded, speeds are reduced to 128kbps until reset. Pricing, promotions, and terms & conditions are subject to change and may be modified or terminated at any time without notice. Compatible phone required. By activating/using Ultra's service, you acknowledge and agree to be bound by the full Plan Terms & Conditions.

SIM card expires on March 19th

Quote from Bunny99 :
Well, mint found an issue and have advised to wait for 24 hours before H2O retrying. And, on top of that, I was asked to renew for 3 months and then ask for refund. It has been nightmare trying to come out of mint. Hopefully, it will end soon.
I think if you let the mint plan expire automatically, then they will release your phone in 1 or 2 days.

Thx Mint for 3 free months plus unlimited data!

instead of $75 for 3 months service, it's $55 for 3 months.

unfortunately, i already have a replacement mint sim to replace this one.

Did you delete your credit card info from their auto renewal web site as advised?

My first attempt was xfinity (verizon) and then h2o(att). Mint is still trying to cancel the pending porting requests.

So, I am skeptical to go with either of them.

Quote from quantecipher :
Can we still port out the Mint's number to other carrier to take advantage of other carrier's port in promo after the Mint's plan has expired? I heard Mint keeps the number for up to 30 days on your account after the plan expired, but not sure if they will release the number to other carrier during the porting request for expired plan? Thanks https://static.slickdealscdn.com/ima...s/emot-hug.gif
my mint number expired in early June, still showing under Mint upon checking, dont't know if Mint will release the number for porting out purposes at this time.

Give it a try. I was able to port out after the plan expired. I updated it on another post. Stick Out Tongue
