New Mint Mobile customers who switch over from either AT&T or Verizon will score $25 of account credit for free as part of a new promotion from the well-known prepaid carrier.

Available until the end of August, the new promotion gives those looking to escape the shackles of pricey big carrier unlimited plans a nice little further incentive to try one of the best-prepaid plans on the market. Of course, you could still opt for an unlimited data plan at Mint Mobile, which will only set you back $30 per month at its cheapest rate.

Mint Mobile operates a rather unique pricing system where you buy your data upfront in multi-month installments. Simply put, if you buy more months upfront, it'll essentially average out at a cheaper rate per month on average - with a year being the best value overall. 

It's worth noting that this isn't technically a 'first-month free' offer, it's essentially some renewal credit that you can use after your initial three months is up. Think of it as a 'buy three months, get one-month free' promotion instead - not a huge deal, but a nice little freebie nonetheless if you were thinking about making the switch.
