Simple Mobile Truly Unlimited Exclusive Plan on Amazon - $50 ALL IN ($50 Gift Card upon Activation) $0.01

It seems that Simple Mobile launched, or is launching a unique plan with Amazon for Prime Members which is very similar to their regular $50 Plan but with extra incentives.

https://amazonawprewards.com/

Simple Mobile is running the following promotion below which seems to be a $5MM ($50GC + $5 GC/10% Credit Back upon Activation). You get a full first month of Unlimited Service for Free after Gift Card is received so for anyone who is about to have a Mint Mobile Plan expire, this is a good plan to switch over to.

Promo
-PROMOTION: Get a $50 eGift Card when you purchase a Simple Mobile Stored Value Card + Sim Kit and activate a new line of service by 4/30/2020 on the Simple Mobile website. $50 Simple Mobile Stored Value card plan required.
-Step 1: Purchase a Simple Mobile Stored Value Card + SIM Kit anytime between 3/30/2020 through 4/30/2020. Item only sold & shipped by Simple Mobile.
-Step 2: Activate your service by 5/15/2020. You will automatically receive a text message within 10 business days of activation. The text message will include a unique redemption code and instructions on how to redeem your eGift Card.
-Step 3: Redeem your unique code with the instructions from the text message you receive. Please note that the unique code sent via text message can only be redeemed once and cannot be replaced. Limit of 1 Gift Card per qualifying phone number permitted.

On a high level, this plan is $50 All-In including Taxes & Fees ($4 savings in my state) and I get 10% cash back every month (another $5 savings). I tried to buy 2 but it seems to be limited to 1 per Prime Account.

$50 ALL IN PRICE
-Tax Savings
-$5 10% Cash Back every month
-$2.50 5% provided by Amazon Credit Card
= $42.50 Final Price (if you add up all the savings)

Benefits
- Unlimited Talk, Text, Data
- International Roaming
- 5GB of Hotspot
- Truly Unlimited Data (no throttle to watch Prime Videos, Netflix, Music, etc)
- plus international roaming in 16 Latin American countries
- Works on T-Mobile Network (5G if you have a 5G Device, if not then 4G LTE)
- 4G LTE or 5G (if you have a 5G device - check SM.com for details)
- Amazon Customer service and billing vs having to deal with Simple Mobile (Tracfone)

5GB hotspot, Latin America roaming, money-maker if value Amazon as cash... This is sweet!

Hope the rebate process is not as painful as previous ones from America Movil brands—this year and last two-three—requiring manual follow-up and pestering. Although customer service and billing may be Amazon, rebate processing is still the same infamous TPGNY used by America Movil brands.

You left out an important part: "plus international roaming in 16 Latin American countries". That's very different from your "International Roaming" statement!

No throttle yeah sure. I don't believe all the carrier throttle when you to reach somekind of GB per month.

Help me understand how this is a good deal. It's more expensive than almost every other MVNO. If you need more than a single line, you'll be paying more than the big 4 service providers.

If you consider Amazon GC as equivalent to cash, as many do, and you just need service for a month, this is unlimited service + great hotspot for free.

However, it is definitely a ho-hum offer for anyone that wants service beyond two months.

True. It would be a decent offer if there was no limit on how many you could buy per prime account. I could use google voice and keep using this service for a while and make money in the process. This is more like a 1 month free trial and nothing more

In a capsule, that's exactly right.
