Don't Miss Out. Three of the Best Prepaid Deals Are Ending New Year's Eve

Fireworks
This post is a heads up that three popular deals are ending along with the New Year's Eve fireworks.

MintSIM's Buy 3 Months 3 Months Free Offer ends December 31

This is probably the best of the offers ending soon. NewMintSIM customers who buy a 3 month plan on the MintSIM site get six months for the price of three. That's quite a deal because the three month plans are already heavily discounted for new customers. The deal is:

  • $45 for six months of  unlimited talk and text and 2 GB/month of LTE data ($7.50/month)
  • $60 for six months of  unlimited talk and text and 5 GB/month of LTE data ($10/month)
  • $75 for six months of  unlimited talk and text and 10 GB/month of LTE data ($12.50/month)

Keep in mind that these deals are only good for the first six months. Renewals are much more expensive.

  • 2 GB: $69/3 months ($23/month), $108/6 months ($18/month), $180/12 months ($15/month) 
  • 5 GB: $90/3 months ($30/month), $144/6 months ($24/month), $240/12 months ($20/month) 
  • 10 GB: $114/3 months ($38/month), $180/6 months ($30/month), $300/12 months ($25/month)

At least you have six months to think about what you will do when the promotion ends.

ROK Mobile's Three Months of Unlimited Everything For $99 Offer Ends December 31

ROK's deal gives new customers three months of unlimited talk, text and data on your choice of Sprint or "Other CDMA" (Verizon) for $99. Customers choosing Sprint also get a free ZTE Prestige Android LTE phone. As will all unlimited plans, ROKs isn't really unlimited. Video streaming is at 480p and after 20 GB of data use, data speeds nay be temporarily reduced. After the first three months, ROK's unlimited plan costs $45/month on Sprint and $50/month on Verizon. The ROK deal is online only.

MetroPCS' Four Lines of Unlimited for $100 Promotion Rumoured to End December 31

MetroPCS dealers have reportedly told customers that the T-Mobile sub-brand's Four Lines of Unlimited for $100 promotion will also end 12/31. The end of the deal has not been officially confirmed by MetroPCS, but a carrier not announcing a promo's end  is not unusual.  The promotion gives customers four lines of Metro's $50/month unlimited talk, text and data pan for $100.  Three lines are $90, two lines are $80. Both new and existing customers are eligible for this promotion, but at least one of four lines must be a new activation. As always, there are limits on the "unlimited data", video is throttled to 480p quality, hotspot is not allowed and data is subject to deprioritization after 35 GB. An added bonus is that plan prices ase "all-in", MetroPCS pays all the taxes in all states and localities.

If you want any if these deals, don't delay, you have less than a week left to get the savings.

  1. I've also been seeing on message boards that the Walmart bonus data for Verizon Prepaid will end on December 31st. Can somebody confirm this?

  2. Metro PC's one of the 4 lines had to be a new activation, I thought for the 4 free phones they all had to be ported?

  3. sorry that I really don't have much to say about the article, but I do want to commend both you and Christine on a great website, and all of the information you give to us :-) I hope you and yours have a safe and happy new years..

  4. No. I got one port and one new #. Must be in same transaction. I only deal with corporate stores though. 3rd party stores make their own rules..

  5. Dennis, do you know if there's a time limit for activating the MintSIM accounts? My plan is not up for renewal for a few months yet & another family member's is a few months after that. In previous promos they've had a 45 day limit, but I can find no mention of it now.

    1. somewhere I saw last week.. .need to activate by 12/31 to get 6 months offer..

      But not sure what will happen if I order now - SIM might arrive by 1st week of Jan only.

      Delete
    2. That's to buy, they'll give you at least 45 days after that to activate (actually wound up activating the one family member on the 46th day, but no problems). I'm just wondering if the lack of such verbiage now means I can buy SIMs for back-to-back usage.

    3. 45 DAYS. got an email today from the mint sim folks reminding me to activate my mint sim. one specific paragraph in the email says:

      "This is just a gentle reminder to get moving! Your Mint SIM card must be activated within 45 days of purchase or it will become non-refundable and inactive. And no one wants that!"

      bought my mint sim on 11/24/2017. so for me, the 45 day mark is 1/8/2018 when my six month mint sim becomes a pumpkin if not activated. was originally planning to activate my mint sim tomorrow or no later than 1/2/2018. because have a lycamobile sim expiring on 1/7/2018. and just like that, while preparing to port to mint sim, the mint sim folks sent me the email telling me to get on the ball and activate my sim asap.

      yes will do so asap.

      so happy holidays & happy new years everyone!

  8. we are very happy with our MetroPCS plans

  9. let's all hope that the end of net neutrality does not lead to continuous price increases for home internet as well as wireless data in 2018

    ReplyDelete
  10. 2018 will bring more price increases by Sprint and T-Mobile as they switch gears from attracting maximum number of new subscribers to earning more money for spectrum deployment.
    Funny, it's just the opposite of what PP PN pundits claimed would happen. Two weaker competitors can't sustain low pricing the way a single, strong competitor could have done.

    We'll hear lots of howling and name-calling when Sprint and T-Mobile raise wholesale prices to MVNOs.

    1. Even if rates go up without a merger, it's still possible that rates would have gone up more with a merger.

      Delete
    2. Rate hikes from T-Mobile make sense as they are actively and rapidly making the network much better.

      There's no reason or basis in a prediction that a Sprint/T-Mobile merger would have caused rate hikes... Other than fear mongering.

      One has to look at telecomm history to disprove the price hike idea. For the last 20 years there is a very strong trend of consolidations and mergers (Nextel?? Alltel??)... and at the same time prices slide down while value (coverage, minutes, texts, amount of data, speed of data) rapidly improves.

      So, go ahead, look at how much Alltel and Verizon charged for data before they merged, and now. It's eye opening.

  12. re MintSim - will an iphone from att prepaid work or does it need to be unlocked?

    1. MintSim coverage map looks like T-Mobile, so no, an AT&T Prepaid phone will not work with a T-Mobile SIM unless it is unlocked. It will work on Cricket, H2O, and other AT&T carriers without being unlocked.
