You'll find all of this week's best Mint Mobile deals neatly rounded up into one handy resource right here on this page - including savings on both plans and devices. While prepaid carriers in general aren't known for their deals (just cheap plans), Mint Mobile actually has a surprisingly large variation of promotions to check out - especially if you're a new customer looking to make the switch.
Right now there are some fantastic ways to save, including one of the best promos we've seen yet for new customers at the carrier. For a limited time only, you can sign up for any Mint Mobile plan for just $15 per month for the first three months. Simply put, you can dip your toes into the world of Mint Mobile for just $45 upfront. We'd particularly recommend the unlimited data plan under these terms as it's still eligible for the saving.
While these Mint Mobile deals above are specifically for new customers, there are still some promotions open to existing customers too. 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.

Mint Mobile deals and coupons this month
Mint Mobile phone deals
Google Pixel 8: $120 off with a plan at Mint Mobile
Mint Mobile's deal on the latest Google Pixel 8 is a superb value option for new customers porting their number over from another carrier. Mint is currently offering a full $120 off the upfront cost of the device when paired with a new plan, which is one of the most generous savings out there on this device right now. You'll also get an additional 50% off a 12-month plan, which is handy since the annual plans average out as the cheapest overall at Mint.
Google Pixel 8 Pro: $170 off with a plan at Mint Mobile
Mint Mobile's upping the discount even further on the Pixel 8 Pro, with a massive $170 now available for new customers who pick up the device alongside a new plan. As a side bonus, you'll also get 50% off a 12-month annual plan, which enables you to essentially try out this prepaid carrier for an incredibly low price overall. If you're looking to break away from the usual big carrier contracts, then this deal is a good option.
Android phones: $50 off with 12-month plan
Another good option for Android users, Mint Mobile deals also extend to a whole range of devices from Samsung, OnePlus, and other leading Android brands. Purchase a device directly from Mint alongside a 12-month plan and you'll get $50 off your bundle - not a huge saving, but one that's worth taking advantage of if you're looking to buy your device outright.
Apple & iOS devices: new customers get 50% off first 12 months
A more generic Mint Mobile deal that applies to nearly all devices - including the latest iPhones - is an introductory plan discount for new customers. Port your number over from another carrier and buy a phone outright at Mint and the carrier will give you 50% off your first annual 12-month plan. Overall, this isn't the biggest saving but it's a useful discount if you just want to try out Mint for a year before committing.
Mint Mobile plan deals
Mint Mobile: any three month plan for $15 per month
Attention new Mint customers! For a limited time only you can get any three month plan at Mint for just $15 per month right now - an awesome intro promo that's perfect if you're just starting out. This particular deal applies to all of Mint's plans so it's worth picking up the unlimited data plan specifically to get the best possible value here (you can switch over later). Note, this promotion is available to new customers only.
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 for 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 are up, you'll have to sign-up for 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
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 enroll you on the cheapest monthly rate for three months on each line. That means paying just $15 per month for the entry-level 5GB data plan - a fee that's normally reserved for either new customers or those buying a yearly subscription.
Mint Mobile 55+ plan: exclusive seniors plan for $15 per month
Here's another promotion that's relatively well-hidden on the Mint Mobile site - so much so that you might miss it unless you read the fine print. Seniors can immediately get access to the Mint 55+ plan, which entitles them to special customer service options and the lowest rate possible for the 5GB monthly plan. Unlike most users, Seniors don't have to pay for their plan on a multi-month basis upfront, instead opting for a simply pay-monthly rate of just $15 per month (no contract needed).
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.
Mint Mobile deals: 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
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 $25 a month with the basic plan tier and with options for a more premium plan, 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 $25 a month currently. Boost has also launched a new service called Boost Infinite recently, which offers an all-inclusive unlimited plan and an iPhone 15 Pro for just $60 per month, which is fantastic value.
