Last year we decided to take a good look at our cell phone plans and see where we could trim the fat.  It didn’t take me long to realize, after I ran the numbers, that most of the contract plans were a HUGE rip-off.

We went out on a limb when our contracts were up and decided to give Virgin Mobile a try.  At first, we were leery of spotty coverage, dropped calls and slow data speeds.  I found out that Virgin Mobile uses the Sprint network, so if you or anyone near you uses Sprint, IT’S THE SAME THING, JUST WAY CHEAPER!




I also took a look at the minutes we were using which was less than 300 for myself and less than 700 for my husband (I guess he’s more of a talker)!  I was able to get my plan down to $30 and his is at $45.  That includes unlimited talk, texts, and data!  The data is fast, we have BETTER coverage now than with Verizon and we are paying at least $50 less combined every month.  Not only that, we are NOT locked into a contract.  Once or twice I forgot to re-up our minutes and they gave us free grace minutes and an extra $15 to re-up.  I guess they thought they were losing a customer when I just thought we were on autopay!  You can set up autopay so you can avoid that, but not only were we NOT penalized. we had to pay $15 less that month!

When you sign up for a NEW account with VIRGIN MOBILE you will receive a $25 account credit!

Then you can earn even more $25 credits each time you refer someone.  That’s a lot of cash to rack up, and would couldn’t use an extra $25, right?
