PSA - Mint SIM New Customer Promo Ending July 25

Mint SIM is an sub-brand of T-Mobile MVNO Ultra Mobile that offers discounts to customers who pay in advance for three, six or twelve months of service. Mint SIM's regular prices are pretty good, but since late year Mint SIM has been running a promotion that gives new customers deep discounts of their first three months of service. However, I just got word from Mint SIM that the promotion will be ending July 25. 

There are three Mint SIM plans, cleverly named Small, Medium and Large. All three include unlimited talk, text and data with varying amounts of high speed data. Here's the deal that new customers can still get in until the 25th of next month.

  • Small plan - unlimited talk, text and data, first 2 GB at high speed  - Regular price $69/3 months ($23/month), Promo price $35/3 months ($11.67/month). 
  • Medium plan - unlimited talk, text and data, first 5 GB at high speed - Regular price $99/ 3 months ($33/month), Promo price $50/3 months ($16.67/month). 
  • Large plan - unlimited talk, text and data, first 10 GB at high speed - Regular price $119/ 3 months ($39.67/month), Promo price $60/3 months ($20/month).
After the promotion ends, customers can renew at Mint SIM's regular prices of:

  • Small - $35/month, $69/3 months ($23/month), $119/6 months ($19.83/month), $199/12 months ($16.58/month)
  • Medium - $50/month, $99/3 months ($33/month), $169/6 months ($28.17/month), $299/12 months ($24.92/month)
  • Large - $60/month, $119/3 months ($39.67/month), $209/6 months ($34.83/month), $399/12 months ($33.25/month)
In addition to unlimited domestic talk, text and data, all Mint SIM plans also include unlimited international text messaging, unlimited Wi-Fi calling and texting (T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling supported phone required) and pay per use international voice and text roaming at 2¢/text, 6¢/minute in Canada and Mexico and 5¢/text, 25¢/minute in other countries.

    2. Dennis will any t mobile wifi calling supported phone work with wifi calling on mintsim? I have a moto g5 plus and it is listed as a wifi calling compatible phone on t mobile but the mintsim support people say it's not compatible and refer mme to a list that is from 2016 and hasn't been updated. Any insights would be appreciated.

  2. I tried mint sim a few months back. I took advantage of the promo but the taxes are really high since I live in California. After the promo it didn't make sense for me with taxes so I moved to Boom! Which includes taxes on their prices.

    1. When you live in states that tax heavily you need to be careful or you'll end up paying thru your ears because of tax. I favor companies that absorb the tax such as metro cricket and boom.

    2. Get a non tax state phone number. Problem solved.

    3. Are you absolutely sure that Mint will charge you the sales tax associated with your phone number's area code?

      I have a phone with Virgin Mobile with a Delaware area code, even though I don't live in Delaware. Delaware has a zero percent sales tax; however, if I pay my monthly fee through the Virgin website, since the billing address on my credit card is in my state, with a high sales tax, they charge me the sales tax of my state, not Delaware.

      Of course, if I go to a store to buy a Virgin top-up card the store also charges me the local sales tax.

    4. The area code doesn't matter. I had an Oregon number but since I live in CA the taxes are out of control. Again area code doesn't matter. What matters is the address where you live.

      Delete
    5. Yes, that's absolutely right. I have seen a number of comments on various articles here saying to get a certain phone number to avoid tax and it won't affect your sales tax.

      Yes companies don't use area codes for determining taxes. They are getting smarter. Since most of them now require credit/debit cards, they use your mailing/billing addresses attached to those cards to calculate taxes. Otherwise, everyone would have Oregon area codes.

    7. SO I just went to renew after my 3 month trial - it has been pretty good for me. I live in NH, have a NH billing and phone number and for some reason they are trying to charge sales tax (NH has none and the amount is 1.35%). Still waiting for a response from their support. Their first answer was pretty useless

  3. Now, every MVNO slowly promoting unlimited talk/text service. I hope very soon this gets a standard feature of every carrier. As they are promoting this innovative feature, customer is faced with some hoops to cross. If past is any indication, this promotion is only a passing phenomenon. Blogs like yours have done their part. Thanks!

    1. Problem is unlimited talk and text standard will make it a fixed cost. A user like that uses 350 mins a month and maybe 300 text a month will be paying for more than what we use. Seems like $20 is the standard right now for unlimited on all carriers.

      Delete
    2. Probably everyone reading this has also read in other articles that people in their 20's hardly ever talk on the phone, refuse to listen to their voicemail, and choose plans with large data buckets instead of looking for large monthly minute allowances.

      Furthermore, even texting is dropping out of vogue. So many people use texting applications or Facebook, each of which uses data and not SMS/MMS allowances, that data is the important factor for customers.

      It's probably why many plans now include unlimited minutes and texting. The cell companies have all the usage data and see that their voice-minutes usage and text usage have gone way down. Thus, it's low risk to just include unlimited minutes and text in all the plans. Most of the users are pushing against their 2GB or 5GB data limits and many barely use 100 voice minutes in a month. Since the voice usage is so far down, even with the few people who do use a lot of voice minutes the voice channels are still being underused.

      Therefore, don't worry about the unlimited minutes. I don't think the carriers have boosted their monthly rates to give the unlimited minutes to you. Since their voice channels are so underused, it's a plentiful resource.

      That's why I am so glad unlimited minutes and text are available. I use about 2700 texts received and sent a month and 4,000 voice minutes per month on one of my phones. I doubt it's ringing any alarm bells at the cell carrier.

  7. So any phone that is wifi compatible with T mobile will work with wifi calling on mintsim even if it's not listed on the mintsim site as a compatible phone?
