Did you know an average U.S. adult spends $99/month on their cell phone plan? However, you don’t have to. There are many ways to reduce your cell phone bill. Read on as we reveal tips and tricks to save money on your monthly bill.
Switch your carrier.
If you’re not happy with your current phone plan, there are tons of carrier options on the market for you to choose from. While you have the big players - AT&T®, T-Mobile®, and Verizon, there are several Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) that offer more affordable plans. Carriers are always looking to gain more customers. And so, they frequently offer incentives like device discounts or feature specials. So, keep an eye out and make the most of such deals.
Pick a plan with bundled features.
Most carriers offer additional features for free. If you’re paying separately for any add-ons, see if you can save money by bundling these features with your phone plan. For example, Verizon’s postpaid unlimited plans include free streaming, Apple Music® subscriptions, and different tiers of hotspot allotments.
Switch to a family plan.
Most carriers offer great discounts for every additional line you add to your phone plan. If you and your family members use different plans, it could help everyone save some money by joining a family plan. Switching to a family plan will depend on your current needs and the requirements of all parties involved. However, it’s worth considering.
Sign up for autopay.
Many carriers offer the autopay option with additional incentives, such as a 5%-10% discount on your phone plans. For instance, T-Mobile®, Verizon, and AT&T® offer a $5 discount on many of their plans, both their postpaid and prepaid. Many smaller MVNOs also offer this option. Opting for autopay not only lets you save money but also helps you to pay your monthly bills on time.
