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

  • Those moments when your toddler comes over and asks you for a cuddle and falls asleep in your arms. They are so few and far between and I swear there is nothing sweeter. In the midst of the terrible twos, his peaceful slumber is always the reminder I need that he's still my baby.

  • She is all that and a bag of chips 👌🏼 I wrapped all the Christmas presents this morning and sat back a bit disappointed because to be honest, there wasn't much there. It's so easy to get caught up in the holidays and the spending and the concept that we always need MORE when in reality we already have what we need. I have a husband who loves me (most of the time) and two happy healthy kids who think I'm the bomb.com. Hudson will be so excited when he opens his few presents that it won't even occur to him that there "should" be more! Christmas isn't about the gifts and the gluttony guys, it's about family and he birth of the most amazing baby ever. Don't get sucked into all the expected sponsored posts of what your kids NEED or SHOULD HAVE to be happy. They have you. They have their health. Just have a Merry Christmas and be happy for what you already have 🎁

  • Dollar Days at the Baltimore Aquarium because ain't nobody got time for $65/person on a normal day! Hudson absolutely LOVED it and Presley seemed in total awe of the bright colors and movement! All around a successful day with only a few meltdowns and lots of cuddles from grandma and pap pap to get us through! I'm enjoying a peaceful and SILENT drive home now! Ahhhhhhhh...😴

  • My little elf girl is four months old today. *cue alllll the tears* I feel like four months is when we're officially out of the teeny baby stage...although she has been in 6-9 month sleepers since she was like two months sooooo...anywho. This morning Hudson didn't wake up until TEN so me and this girl got to hangout in bed and drink HOT coffee and get some work done (which never happens anymore). She's the smiliest, calmest baby I've ever met. Literally I can count the amount of times that she's like scream cried on two hands and most of those were because she hates being in her car seat. She loves cuddles and her big brother the most and still nurses like a champion. She thinks Sonny is like the funniest thing ever and EVERYTHING (seriously everything) goes in her mouth. I always thought I'd be a boy mom but I'll tell you what, I'm loving being this girls mom. And so the four of us will continue to learn together as a family and grow stronger and love harder and now I have to go make a cake because I told Hudson it was Presley's four month birthday and he got a little too excited. HAPPY FOUR MONTHS P GIRL! 😂

  • Advent calendars, Christmas jammies, dance parties to our favorite Christmas songs, and a half decorated tree because I have about the same attention span as my two year old. Yes friends, Christmas is here and there is nothing more fun than when the "magic" becomes real in your house again. Merry Christmas friends! What is one tradition that your family does every year?? We need to start making a few of our own and I'd love your ideas!!

  • In a house filled with so much mess and chaos, it's these few and far between moments of peace that keep me going. Like the real moments of SILENCE where you get to sit back and reflect. As moms we so rarely get any peace and routine becomes a necessity for sanity even though so many of us crave to get away and get out of that routine. I can't tell you that I've found a balance because I certainly have not, but I can tell you that the days when both my kids sleep at the same time or when Hudson sleeps at all, and I get to recharge my batteries...those are my favorite days. We all need those days. Also, I took a shower and washed my hair for the first time in like a week yesterday so I'm on a roll right now. Anybody else know exactly what I'm talking about???

  • My sweet little Peewee, there is definitely not a baby as sweet as you out there. Guys, she is just the epitome of sweet and I cannot get enough of her. Literally everyone who meets her is amazed by her calm demeanor and want for nothing but a cuddle. She is truly the most perfect addition to our family and We are so thankful for her every day 😍What makes your babies special??

  • Hudson's new favorite song is Feliz Navidad and take my word for it, there is nothing cuter than listening to him sing it. Literally. NOTHING. Also we got our Christmas tree today so let the festivities begin.
