Mint SIM is running a promotion with CNET [cnet.com]
and offering 20% off all of their 6-month and 12-month prepaid plans. Plans can be purchased from Mint SIM [mintsim.com]
with coupon code SHOPCLEVER.
Some example deals (these prices include tax and shipping to California so they may be slightly different for you):
- 12 months service, unlimited talk/text + 2GB LTE data - $166.67 ($13.89 per month)
- 12 months service, unlimited talk/text + 5GB LTE data - $246.67 ($20.56 per month)
- 12 months service, unlimited talk/text + 10GB LTE data - $326.67 ($27.22 per month)
To answer some questions that will likely come up:
Which network does Mint SIM use?
Which phones work with Mint SIM?
Any unlocked phone that supports T-Mobile's network should be fine.
Can I stock up on SIM cards at this price and just activate them as needed?
No - Mint SIM's website says "All Sims purchased must be activated within 45 days of purchase."
What if I buy 12 months of service and then Mint SIM goes out of business?
Then you lose your remaining months of service. However Mint SIM is a subsidiary of Ultra Mobile (an MVNO that has been around for several years), so they're not some new, unknown company.
Does Mint SIM support conditional call forwarding, for use with Google Voice?
Yes, posts on various forums have confirmed that this works.
