Just a few weeks ago I came up with the idea of having a page set aside to represent companies/services that I love and have already shared my new favorite razors with you.
I am so excited to pass along some more exciting deals that I highly suggest you grab on to!
In a previous post I gave an overview of how we stay in a tight one-income budget, giving some basic over-arching tips. But deals, like the one I’m about to share, are what really make the difference when added up. It takes sitting down, with your budget in front of you and saying, “If I can’t get rid of this expense, how can I make it go down?” and you will usually find a way!
So let’s get started!
Today we are going to be discussing cell phones (as you probably picked up from the title). But before we get to the deal I want to tell you our cell phone story.
Before getting married my cell phone was on my parent’s plan because that allowed us all to get a better deal. They were with Verizon and had a two year contract that had just under a year left by the time I married my husband. So during that time we were paying for my husband’s in a separate plan that cost us over $100 a month!
We knew that would never do! Must find a way to get that price down…
So when I was done with my parents’ plan we switched to “dumb” (basic) phones with minimum data (you had to get a certain amount in order to be in a plan that had enough minutes). But we were still paying $140 a month for two basic phones with basically no data!
That wouldn’t do either! Price must go down further…
So I just started Googling…there MUST be a reasonable plan out there that allows us to simply call people with a price that won’t break the bank! Then I found it…
Try $18 A MONTH! Bingo!!
Introducing: Republic Wireless!
To give you the basics, this is a company that uses Sprint and AT&T’s towers (not quite as good of coverage as Verizon) depending on what phone model you go with. It requires that you bring a smartphone to the table (you can buy one from them if you don’t already have a compatible one).
But once you make the initial investment they have plans starting as low as $15 a month (plus tax)! That’s right, we pay about $35 a month for TWO phone services!!
Another great part is that there is no contract so if there was ever a reason we needed to stop using them we could just be done at the end of the month!
We have been very impressed with our experience with them. As mentioned before, we have found that after being with Verizon the coverage with Republic Wireless isn’t quite as good but it has done everything we needed it to do and the amount we are saving makes it well worth it.
So I gave Republic Wireless a ring and asked them what they could give me in the way of discounts that I could pass on to you.
They actually responded by saying that they have some really good deals already going for the holidays and so they would look into getting me a coupon code after that…but no worries, if you sign up now you can take advantage of the holiday deals AND the coupon code if we can get one later!
So here are the deals they have going on right now for all perspective customers:
- 10k luxury vacation giveaway you can sign up for
- You can purchase a compatible smartphone from them for as low as $49! That is a $130 savings!
There you have it! My favorite phone company EVER! Let me know if you sign up!
