All month long, earlyfrom have been hitting shelves, and the latest is from Mint Mobile. The prepaid carrier is now offering new customers three free months of service when they buy any three-month plan -- so you can score six months of service for the price of three.
The three-month plans available range from 4GB for $15 per month to an unlimited data plan for $30 per month. All of Mint Mobile's plans include unlimited talk and text, nationwide coverage and 5G speeds when available. The company uses T-Mobile's GSM network, so any unlocked phone should work with it. The deal runs from now through Jan. 7.
