We've written about Visible wireless before and also how you can get the prepaid unlimited service from Verizon. This time around the deal gets even sweeter, with the first month of Visible costing only $5 when you sign up with an eSIM using promo code eSIM5. This offer ends July 29.
What's an eSIM?
An embedded subscriber identification module, or eSIM, allows you to connect your phone to a cellular network. Unlike removable SIM cards, an eSIM is already built into your newer mobile phone. These allow you to switch cellular carriers more easily without having to swap SIM cards. Check whether your phone is compatible.

The Motorola One 5G Ace is one solid budget 5G phone, according to CNET's Patrick Holland. In his review, he praised the performance of the hardware, the cameras and a battery life that can outlast phones that "cost two or three times as much." At $400 it was a good deal, but you can order one at Visible for only $288. As a bonus, you'll also get a pair of Google Pixel Buds after activation. Don't forget the $50 gift card when you bring your number over, or that free year of Calm.
Visible has recently updated its referral program to give both the referrer and referee a month for $5. Current members can invite up to 12 friends and potentially get an entire year of service for as little as $60. Simply share your unique Bring a Friend code and you'll earn credits each time a buddy signs up. After that promotional month, be sure to check out how to set up or join a Visible Party and keep the savings going.
