An Ode to Excellent Wireless

You’re not gonna believe what showed up in the mail today…


Yes, yes that is correct. You are gazing on a swag box of free goodies from none other than MintMobile! I was surprised a few weeks ago when I got a direct message from them asking for my street address. You won’t be surprised to know that this is the closest thing I will ever get to being sponsored by a company. Pretty funny stuff!

I guess I had made just enough noise about our excellent experience with MintMobile that they decided to give a little shout out. Up to this point, I’ve referred four new people to MintMobile. What’s awesome (and even more valuable than this bag of awesome goodies) is that they offer $15 off your next phone plan recharge when someone signs up using your referral code. With just the savings from these referrals, my next year of service will cost more than 30% less than the regular cost. And we are already talking low costs for mobile service from this awesome carrier.

The MintMobile movement is pretty awesome because it gets rid of things that you don’t need from a phone carrier. Some of these things I’ve already gone over, but they are worth repeating.

You don’t need a brand new phone. I am still rocking an iPhone 6S Plus from a few years ago. I bought it used for $180 and have had zero issues with it. The only thing it doesn’t have? A notch ; )

You don’t need a store to walk into. Walking into a wireless store is just a trap to get upsold on things you don’t need and services you’ll make little use of. Also, let’s be real. Even if you aren’t that great with tech, surely you know someone that knows how to swap out a SIM card on a phone. That is honestly the “trickiest” part about the whole thing, and it’s not even remotely difficult.

You don’t need to pay extra. Unlike cars where someone may notice if have a really nice ride or if you drive a beater, nobody cares what cell phone provider is delivering texts to your phone and routing your calls. Anymore, it doesn’t matter that much. My biggest fear of moving to MintMobile was getting back into Montana with it when we visited home. Those fears were quickly dashed as we traveled in and around Missoula and Bozeman, always having blazing fast 4G service wherever we found ourselves. This has proved to be a non-issue.

I’ve asked it before and I will certainly ask again. What has you so in love with your current phone provider that makes you not want to switch? Loyalty? To a company that takes more than their fair share of your paycheck each month? C’mon. There’s a better way to do this wireless thing. Give MintMobile a spin, and use this link to tell them I sent you:

Saving money is a big part of this blog, and saving on wireless is a simple and easy first step. Let me know if you have questions or concerns, I’m happy to ease the anxiety where I am able!

  1. Stores aren’t always about upselling. They offer customized business solutions and direction for those who are less than savy with tech. 😉


    1. I would definitely have to agree with you on the business solutions, however I am speaking to individuals and less to business situations. I would also agree that stores can be a good resource for those with little tech knowledge, but let’s be honest, there’s a reason why Apple has sold as many iPhones as they have. They are a breeze to set up, use, and transfer to a new one when the time comes. All differences aside, there is a reason why your company does as well as they do and why you have done so well with them. Both are excellent!
