Taxes and Fees are Now Included in Boost Mobile's Plans!

A little over a week ago, we wrote about Boost Mobile teasing us about "something big" coming our way. While it didn't turn out to be the Samsung Note 8, the guess made by one of our readers turned out to be accurate.

Earlier today, the Sprint prepaid brand finally unveiled the "big news" that they posted along with a countdown timer on their website. With today's announcement, we finally get to see what Boost Mobile meant with "flipping the switch on something big."

As it turns out, it's not really the Samsung Note 8 announcement that we've been anticipating. Instead, Boost Mobile is now offering its plans with taxes and fees included for both new and existing customers.

Explained by Boost Mobile chief marketing officer Angela Ritters, this move helps its customers avoid overpaying hidden fees on their wireless plans. If you've been interested in becoming a Boost customer but turned off by these fees, now is the time to make the switch.

Not to mention, there is still time to get four lines for $100 with unlimited data, talk, and text on all lines. Originally, the 4 lines of unlimited gigs for $100 promotion was slated to end yesterday. Boost has, however, extended this to November 2.

Meanwhile, existing customers do not need to do any further action. Taxes and fees will start being included in their next monthly payment after September 8.

Today's announcement means a big deal for Boost Mobile subscribers. Depending on the location of their residence, taxes may reach as high as 19.6% or 10%. By including taxes and fees into the cost of the service plans, subscribers can save a lot of money every month.

In line with this big news, Boost Mobile will be hosting a series of contests in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. The contest is called "Flip Off Taxes Scavenger Hunt", where they will be giving away a grand prize of $5,000. The prepaid brand will be hiding a Golden Switch in each of the three cities. Customers who switch to Boost Mobile will be able to take part in the contest. The first person who locates the Golden Switch in each market will be the lucky winner.

More details about the contest will be announced through the brand's Facebook and Twitter page on Sept. 22.

  1. This is excellent. Basically a price reduction to customers

    1. ...to better match its reduction in coverage and quality of service. Although I would not use it for free, I'd rather pay for quality.

  2. Cricket already includes taxes and fees as well as offering an autopay discount, not to mention the better coverage. Boost had to cancel their autopay discount in order to drop the taxes.

    1. "Boost had to cancel their autopay discount in order to drop the taxes."

      They didn't have to at all. It was entirely their choice.

    2. Boost also doesn't limit your data speeds, charge for or not offer hotspot at all, or charge activation fees. Cricket may have better coverage, but I'll take the worse coverage from Boost because I think they offer good perks.

    3. .... Because there's nothing like the joy of using a hotspot where the network offers no data at all.

  3. @anonymous Sept 9, 2:30.. Hate to break your downer button, but why would I be using Boost and its hot spot if it didn't work? It works 100% fine for me.

    1. Aha. we've met one of those rare people who lives in the small part of the US with Sprint coverage, and even more rare, never travels beyond it. Good for you! That's a situation that most Americans can't relate to.

  4. I'm rare too. I live in the sticks in KY. Get a great Boost signal. I can't get 4G with TMobile. I can't understand all the haters.

    1. Don't drive to Big Stone Gap, Virginia - Sprint service disappears just south of Pikeville. Forget the west outside metro areas.

  5. The $5 autopay credit was removed for new customers on 8/22/17 and no taxes and fees apply only to customers that use their debit or credit card to make payments on the boost mobile website, refill cards at retailers charge sales taxes and boost retail stores charge a $3 fee for payments. Boost is advertising new changes on 9/22/17

  6. Boost customers that were receiving $5 boost dealz credits each month by using the boost dealz app and were told their $5 credit would not change have been notified by text messages that the $5 credit will be lowered to $3 as of 11/22/2017. The boost dealz app ads have also been playing video ads that use more data. Probably not worth the ads for the $3 savings due to data usage and having an ad appear on every screen start swipe and camera start launch
