You Can Now Purchase Mint SIM Plan at Best Buy

mint-sim-best-buy
For the longest time, Mint SIM had been offering its cell phone plans directly on its website. Ever since they started in 2016, the company never had a retail partner that sold their products. That is... until today.

Earlier today, the T-Mobile MVNO announced that it has signed a partnership with retail giant, Best Buy. According to the announcement, the partnership between both parties is an exclusive one, which means that Best Buy is the only retail store people can buy a Mint SIM plan apart from the official website of the MVNO. By making its plans available through Best Buy, Mint SIM has made it easier and more convenient for people to buy a plan that they offer.

In line with this new partnership, Mint SIM has announced a new offer it will be offering to people who buy an unlocked cell phone from Best Buy. The offer states that if you purchase your next cell phone from Best Buy and you add in a Mint SIM phone plan to your shopping cart, you get $20 off your phone plan.

You can then choose from one of the plans offered by the MVNO:

  • 2 GB high speed data: $45/3 months ($15/month), $108/6 months ($18/month), $180/12 months ($15/month) 
  • 5 GB high speed data: $60/3 months ($20/month), $144/6 months ($24/month), $240/12 months ($20/month) 
  • 10 GB high speed data: $75/3 months ($25/month), $180/6 months ($30/month), $300/12 months ($25/month)

All plans include unlimited talk, text and data that refreshes every month.

Mint SIM updated its cell phone plans a week ago. The 3 month plan prices offered are promotional for the first three months only. Once the duration ends, the renewal prices on the three month plans are:

  • $69: 2GB Plan ($23/month)
  • $90: 5GB Plan ($30/month)
  • $114: 10GB Plan ($38/month)

  1. I tried them recently and found they throttle the hell out of the download speeds. I asked for a refund after less than a week. Others have been posting similar issues.

    1. what was the average download speed and how is the coverage in metros?

    2. With the slow speeds, smaller coverage, and instability. MintSim seems like the perfect answer for those who want the Sprint experience while staying on the T-Mobile network.

    3. I have been using Mint for the past 4 months and the download speed is always between 19-23 mbps. I am in metro Phila. I think the speed largely depends on location.

    4. T-Mobile subscribers get the fastest average speeds, and the best LTE availability. 5 billion measurements made by 173,000 users from March 31-June 29 show that Verizon and AT&T have slowed significantly since they offered unlimited service and their networks became more congested. Sprint speeds are still the slowest, but LTE availability is way up compared to last year.

      Note to Tmo/Sprint coverage bots: NO, this was not designed to be a coverage test, so you can crawl back under the bridge. Smart people only pay for the coverage they need.

    5. Averages can be skewed by drastically disproportionate speeds in a select few urban areas.

      Coverage tests in sparsely populated areas are a much better indicator of network quality.

  2. No, Mint SIM, this is NOT real life. It's a circus of slowly dying circle of MVNOs and their little tit-for-tat shell game moves to lure a user for a month or two in hopes they'll "love" it (SO MUCH!) that they will stay or just be too lazy to move on.

  3. Not as good as my totally secret T-Mobile Plan.

    1. Mind to share what secret T-Mobile plan you have?

      Delete
    2. It's the 30 dollar plan that I don't think you can get anymore. It's hard to beat that 30 5GB plan from Tmo.

  4. Their speeds are very inconsistent especially during high traffic hours. You get much better speeds with T-mobile. If it works for you or if you are a low data user, be my guest.

    1. Except for during odd-numbered hours and even-numbered hours, and other than in states that have two senators, MintSim is great.

    2. If it didn't work anywhere, no one would use it. T-Mobile's coverage map is there for anyone that is interested. If there isn't service available there, your phone will not work there. If there is service, then it should (with the caveat that there are always things that may obstruct signal).

      A less extensive coverage map doesn't mean no coverage anywhere.

  5. Their 45 dollar for 3 months used to be 35 for 3 months which was a great deal. Beware the 3 month is just a promotion not regular price.

    1. @ Derek: Go to your Mint Sim Account ; then go to MANAGE PLAN ; then you can choose how many MONTHS you want to extend your plan.

    2. Thank you, I mean I couldn't find the prepaid plan only card from BestBuy...

      Delete
  7. Wait, what?

    Did Mintsim really just bump the 5GB plan up to $30?

    Metro offers roaming and an extra GB for $2.50 more on their $65/6GB two-line plan, and they even throw in two free LG coasters.

    You'd think prepaying would get you cheaper rates, but I guess not.

      No, they didn't. It's 20-24-20.

  8. Does the MintSIM 7-day guarantee apply to this product? I couldn't find a specific return policy on bestbuy.com

  9. No it doesn't. On The Mint website it states ONLY sims purchased on the website qualify for the 7 day refund.
