This post is not sponsored in any way, it’s just what we have discovered for ourselves.
Recently we have been looking at ways to save money on our monthly bills. One thing we noticed was our cell phone bill. We had a family plan with a big company, but that plan was costing us $130 per month. That might not sound like a lot each month, but over the course of a year it adds up, $1560 to be exact. Ouch!
There were two services we found that could lower our costs. One is called Ting, the other is Republic Wireless. Both have plans, and no contracts, that start as low as $5-$6 dollars a month. Yes, you read that right, depending on your usage your bill could be that low. Ours will be higher than that, in the $30 a month range.
We went with Ting because they had more phone choices and better rates for our usage. Also, they are soon going to be able to use iPhone phones, which meant I wouldn’t have to buy a new phone to get on the plan (in Feb). Even with my husband purchasing a new phone, and me staying with our current plan for a month or so, we will still be saving during this first year, with even bigger savings during our following years.
We will be saving about $100 a month this way! Happy dance time!
I wanted to share this in case anyone else had been looking for ways to save on cell phones. It’s worth checking into. Both services have great reviews from users too.
Update: My tech wizard of a husband just explained to me that the type of phone you use will determine which network it is on. So with Ting he is on the Sprint network because he got a Samsung phone, but when iPhones come available on Ting they will be on the same network as AT&T (GSM). Republic Wireless uses the Sprint network, they have one type of phone available. Coverage so far has been great.
