If you are wanting to cut your budget this year one of the biggest monthly bills you can cut is your cell phone bill. Now that most carriers have dropped monthly contracts, you shouldn’t feel tied or loyal to the big guy anymore and should look into providers that give great service (many times exactly the same) for a fraction of the price.
One company that I found recently was Pure Talk USA. They operate on one of the largest GSM Networks in the US, giving you the same 4G LTE service you already love, at a much lower cost! See their coverage map. Another perk… they have all US based customer service.
PureTalk USA has no monthly contract and no hidden fees. Plans start at $20 if you don’t need much data, or their more popular plan with 3GB data is only $30 a month. Plus if you add more lines to your account you save up to 20% off your monthly bill.
A Special Deal
I recently spoke with PureTalk USA about offering y’all a deal and they loved the idea! Right now Southern Savers readers can get up to a $100 bill credit after your 3rd month with them. That basically means 3 free months if you go with the $30 plan!!! Use code SOUTHERNSAVERS at checkout.
You can keep your current phone and your phone number too!
$20 – Unlimited Talk & Text, 500 MB high speed data
$25 – Unlimited Talk & Text, 1 GB high speed data
$30 – Unlimited Talk & Text, 3 GB high speed data
$35 – Unlimited Talk & Text, 5 GB high speed data
$45 – Unlimited Talk & Text, 10 GB high speed data
**Note: When you have used your plan’s high speed data they will throttle down to 2G speed, but you will still have data service and will never be charged overage fees.**
Savings wise this can be $45-$75 a month cheaper per line depending on the current plan you have!! That may not seem like much until you add it up.
Here’s a comparison for my family, going with the 10 GB plan:
We got 2 lines, the first line is $45 and the second is $40.50 ($85.50 total). We also will get a $50 credit after the 3rd month with code SOUTHERNSAVERS. Our bill with Verizon last month was $150 after taxes…
After 12 months for us:
PureTalk Southern Savers Deal – $976
Verizon – $1800 (including taxes/fees)
What would an extra $824 in your pocket mean towards meeting your budget this year… It’s definitely worth considering!
