The best Mint Mobile deals and coupon codes for May 2022

If you're looking to save some hard-earned cash with a great prepaid carrier, this week's Mint Mobile deals could be exactly what you need. Regardless of whether it's a new plan, new phone, or a combination of both you're looking for, there are some good ways to save right now - especially if you're a new customer. 

Mint Mobile deals: quick links

While you'll find all sorts of Mint Mobile deals covering handsets, this week's best Black Friday special, in our opinion, is the 'three months for free' promo. Since this one applies to any of Mint's plans, it can be effectively used to score six months of service for the price of three - at the lowest possible monthly rate, no less. Since Mint normally 'locks' its lowest rates to a yearly plan purchase, this is a great intro deal for newbies.

Early in the year tends to be pretty quiet for Mint Mobile deals but there are still multiple ways to save all year round. If you're looking for a new device and plan bundle especially you can get a few nice little price cuts here and there and, as always, you can save on your plan by buying in bulk. 

We've also included plenty of information on the Mint Mobile free trial just further down the page in the frequently asked Mint Mobile deals questions section. If you're still on the fence about Mint Mobile then we definitely recommend giving that a go, or alternatively, check out some of the other excellent prepaid carriers we've mentioned at the bottom of the page. As with most things, it really pays to shop around and do the research before you commit to a prepaid plan.

So, read on to see our best Mint Mobile deals this week, or use the jumper links provided to skip to the section that's relevant for you. We'd also recommend our guides to the best Mint Mobile phones and Mint Mobile plans if you're looking to do a little bit more research on this excellent prepaid carrier.

Mint Mobile plan deals

Mint Mobile | unlimited data | 3-months: $30/month

Mint Mobile | unlimited data | 3-months: $30/month
Mint Mobile may be a relative newcomer to the world of unlimited data plans, but this new introductory offer is sure to make waves in the market this month. For just $30 a month you can sign up to Mint's new unlimited plan for a whole three months right now. That's a price normally reserved for those who buy in 12-month chunks, so this is an awesome way to try out the new plan at a relatively low price point. Note - after your three months is up, you'll have to sign-up to a 12-month slot to keep the same monthly price, otherwise you'll be paying $40 a month for three months.

Mint Mobile: bundle and save with a 12-month plan

Mint Mobile: bundle and save with a 12-month plan
As always, the best way to save cash on a Mint Mobile deal is to commit to a longer plan. By going for a 12-month plan, for example, you're looking at at least a $10 a month saving on the cheapest 4GB data plan versus the standard three month period. Those savings get even better across the higher data plans too and all Mint Mobile plans are currently available at a cut-down introductory price for your first three months, just like the unlimited data plan above.

Mint Mobile: family plans starting at $15/mo

Another great way to save with Mint Mobile is by bundling together two or more lines into the new Mint Mobile family plan. Supporting anywhere from two to five lines at any one time, Mint will automatically enrol you on the cheapest monthly rate for three months on each line. That means paying just $15 per month for the entry level 4GB data plan - a fee that's normally reserved for either new customers or those buying a yearly subscription. 

Mint Mobile coupon codes

There are a lot of sites out there right now that claim to have Mint Mobile coupon codes and promo codes but quite frankly we haven't found any that actually work or offer anything you don't already get with the deals above. Free shipping is a commonly advertised Mint Mobile coupon code on these sites for example, but Mint already offers free shipping with all orders anyway. Subsequently, we'd steer of those sites because they're essentially offering false advertising.

Mint Mobile coupon codes are in fact quite rare, although we'll of course always be updating this page with any we find on a regular basis. Please feel free to bookmark this page and check-in in the future if the above Mint Mobile deals aren't what you're looking for.

Frequently asked questions

Does Mint Mobile have a free trial?

Yes! In fact, the Mint Mobile free trial is a brand new addition to the site and a great way to check out this prepaid carrier without incurring any additional cost. Simply visit the free trial page here, check if your phone is compatible, and sign up using your email. 

After signing up you'll receive two SIM cards from Mint Mobile that will allow you to trial the service for 7-days with 250 MB of data, 250 minutes, and 250 free texts. To start your trial, simply input SIM 1 and activate the service via the Mint Mobile app. After your 7-days are up you can choose to either continue on SIM 1 with a new number or insert SIM 2 to port over your old number from another carrier. Note, you'll need to sign up with a credit card but you won't be charged unless you decide to carry on your subscription after your trial is up.

Mint Mobile: 7-day free trial now available

Mint Mobile: 7-day free trial now available
Get yourself 250MB of 5G data, 250 minutes, and 250 texts free of charge with the new Mint Mobile free trial. With cell phone plans as little as $15 a month, plus excellent coverage on the T-Mobile network makes Mint Mobile an extremely competitive choice for those on a budget. Previously you had to pay $5 upfront to get yourself a starter kit so this is a great way to try out this excellent prepaid carrier for less this week.

How can I check coverage in my area?

You can very easily check whether you'll be covered with Mint Mobile's coverage checker over at its site. All you need to do is enter your zip code and Mint Mobile will check to see what your 5G and 4G coverage is like. Mint Mobile operates under the T-Mobile network, so coverage is generally pretty good across the board - especially in the big cities, which are the first areas to receive 5G coverage typically. Outside of the big cities, you may find you're restricted to 4G only right now, but you'll most likely find that's the case with most providers currently.

Does TechRadar recommend Mint Mobile?

If you're on a budget and looking for a no-nonsense and great value cell phone plan then we definitely have no hesitation in recommending Mint Mobile. Even though you have to pay upfront for your plan, Mint Mobile deals offer pretty unbeatable value when it comes to monthly data allowances. Being prepaid too makes it fairly easy to try out since you won't be tied into a lengthy contract.

That said, there are plenty of other great cheap prepaid plans on the market currently so there's no harm in shopping about at rival carriers before you jump on board. A really good alternative to Mint, especially for those who want an unlimited plan, is Visible. Coming in at just $40 a month with plenty of options to reduce that cost down further, this Verizon sub-carrier is a great choice - see this his week's best Visible deals for more. Another great option is Boost Mobile, which has an unlimited prepaid plan for $50 a month currently. For one line, that's pretty pricey, but you can add additional lines for just $30 each, which can make it really economical if you want to have multiple lines.

We've included a couple more of our favorite plans just below for comparison's sake, and we'd also recommend checking out our best cell phone plans and best cheap cell phone plans roundups - which aim to provide a nice overview of the market as a whole if you should be interested.
