Ting Mobile: How We Cut Our Phone Bill In Half

Ting Mobile was ranked the second highest overall mobile service provider by Consumer Reports in 2015, but somehow the masses have yet to catch on to the awesome services they are providing their customers.

Seriously people, I cut my average cell phone bill in HALF.

When we lived in England, my phone bill was £17 per month. I remember crying to Adam that cell phone plans in America were INSANELY expensive and that we would never be able to afford them. Then I found Ting Mobile and my first bill was $30, and I cried all the happy tears. If you haven’t heard about Ting Mobile, let me give you a little information on what they are offering that traditional cell phone plans are not.

  1. Ting provides rates, not plans:

In other words, instead of choosing a plan and dealing with the consequences of going over or under your data usage for a month, you simply pay for what you use. So if one month you use 100 texts and the next month you use 1000 texts, you won’t have to pay the same amount. Plus Ting makes it so simple to track how many minutes, texts and megabytes of data you are using and emails you if you go over the limits you have set for yourself! No more contracts to deal with and Ting uses Sprint and T-Mobile coverage so you have the same coverage as you had before switching!

      2.  No More Contracts:

You know what i’m talking about. You sign a 2-year contract and somehow along the way your bill goes up by $30 a month and no one seems to have an answer for you so you spend days on hold with customer service only to find out that that contract you signed means you’re stuck, no matter what. Well with Ting, you don’t have to worry about that. Oh, and did I mention that they are known for their phenomenal no-hold customer service (that’s right, someone will actually pick up the phone and speak to you). Just another perk.

3.   You can BYOD:

Ting is hip and has created their own slang for “Bring Your Own Device.” What does that mean for you? It means you don’t have to pay an absurd monthly fee to buy a new “compatible” phone for their network. Just bring the phone your using now (80% of phones will work with Ting) and insert the Ting sim card. Wham, Bam, Thank you ma’am. BUT if you are in the market for a new phone, no worries, they’ve got you covered.

4.   You set the rules:

You can access your families phones via the Ting app or website and do everything from turning off texting to disabling international phone calls and more. Ting lets you customize your own plan as you go so that you never spend more than you want to. In other words, if your son is only allowed to use his phone to text/call you in case of emergencies, you can make that happen without paying crazy prices to include him in your plan. This plan is PERFECT for families.

5.   Early Termination Fee:

That’s right, Ting understands how annoying traditional phone companies are which is why they pay you back for having to deal with sh**y early termination fees. Ting will pay you 25% of what your old phone company charges you to cancel up to $75. That would pay for the first THREE phone bills of an average Ting customer. Seriously, you’d be crazy not to switch.

I know I sound crazy and maybe a lot obsessed, and I am. I am a total thrifty mom and my family is on a tight budget. If it weren’t for Ting Mobile, I have no idea how we would afford the prices of phone bills in America. To me, Ting just makes sense and I can’t help but wonder why people are allowing themselves to get screwed by phone companies who don’t care when there is a better option. Ting even provides resources like this short ebook to help you lower your phone bill even more.

If you’re not totally sold, I have one more special offer to give you. Use this link right HERE and get $25 credit when you activate your Ting account. That’s one month free. I’m hoarding the hundreds we’re saving on our phone bills to make a down payment on our first house. What could you use that extra money for?! Imagine the fun you could have in Target!

This post was sponsored by Ting Mobile, but as usual, all opinions and words are my own! I only tell you about products I truly love and use myself!

Always,

Alexie

  • Lazy Sundays call for even lazier Sunday evenings. Preparing for the Monday Morning Blues with my book club box from @toomuchmonday 😍 This mom/pregnancy thing is exhausting and I think I deserve a break so If anyone's looking for me, I'll be in bed reading my book with the scent of the beach in the background (compliments of a very delicious candle) munching on champagne gummy nears (YES THESE ARE A THING) and sipping some artisanal pineapple, papaya and honey tea. Jealous? Check the link in my bio to get your hands on next months box!! •

  • Since this book arrived on our doorstep, Hudson has been fascinated with it! The colors, the unicorn and the "scawwy dwagon" are his faves. The coolest part is that it's about him and totally focused around his own story. I love that he will always have this personalized book and the memories of us reading it together... or on his own. Thank you @lostmy.name for helping to create special memories for us!! •

  • I want to stop time. Right now. And hold onto you forever. The absolute best feeling in the whole world is feeling him wrap his little arms around my neck and hold on as tight as he can. I love being his mom. I love loving him. I love that he loves me even though I'm broke and can't buy him all the toys. I love that to him I am perfect. Please please please don't grow up, baby. Time flies, mama's. Happy Monday. 
P.S. how amazing is this dress from @mossandhoney!? It's not even maternity but it COULD be because it's beautiful and totally cute 😍

  • Hudson's newest obsession is watermelon juice so I've spent the morning hacking watermelons in our @vitamix blender. My hubs says it tastes like a vacation. Since we don't have any vacate planned, I guess this will do for now! Doesn't get much more summery than that, eh?! Happy weekend, peeps! •
