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

  • This is what fat and happy looks like, folks! She is probably the chattiest baby EVER, and also the smiliest. At two months, she's already brightening every room she enters and I am so proud to be her mama. Her little half smile and chunky rolls make me a better person and she's a constant reminder of the blessings I've been given. •

  • Flowers. Because it's Tuesday but It feels like it should be Friday. Ear infections suck! Anybody have any tips for pesky ear infections? So far we've got bubble guppies, saltines and the occasional popsicle! •

  • Both of my babies are SLEEPING! What a glorious moment in #momlife. 
Hudson has a double ear infection and I cried last night while I cuddled him back to sleep for the second time. As moms we just want to take our babies pain away. We would literally do ANYTHING to save them from pain but unfortunately we can only do what we can do and loving them unconditionally (even when they are screaming, kicking, and in pain) is often the only answer we have! 
Anywho, look how big my baby is. I think I blinked and he turned into a little man. Luckily, he is still a total mama's boy and craves all the cuddles, snuggles, and being carried around he can get. Literally. I had him in a sling the other day and didn't even hate it. That's all I've got today. I'm gonna go take a bath or sit in silence for the first time in two months. •

  • My two month old may look like a six month old, but she is the cutest chunk I've ever seen. And yes, she does have red hair. ✌🏻#theresnoredheademoji #dontdiscriminate •

  • This sweet little girl is TWO MONTHS OLD TODAY! Unlike her rambunctious brother, she has a much quieter spirit. She loves to nurse (can you tell) and wants to be cuddled all day long. Literally, she doesn't like to be put down. Her favorite song is 1,2,3,4,5 once I caught a fish alive and she giggles every time daddy blows on her head. She's so strong and can already hold her head up and put weight on her little feet! I'm hoping she waits a little longer than her brother to start walking (he started at nine months)! I still stare at her little face as much as I can and I love when she smiles at me first thing every morning. We cosleep and she has to be laying right against me at all times. I never knew I could love ANOTHER human the way I love Hudson and even though it's different, it's such a powerful never ending love that I can't put into words. Happy two months to you my sweet baby girl. You are more than I ever could have dreamed of. •

  • Erm serious question...WHEN DID MY NEWBORN GET SO BIG?! She's in the 95th percentile and growing like a weed. Literally she's like almost as big as Hudson and she's not even two months old yet! Ok...tomorrow she's officially two months old but today she's not so I'm gonna relish in my last few moments of a one month old. HAPPY SATURDAY! •

  • I almost forgot what it was like to shower with a baby staring at me the whole time! Thanks for reminding me, P. 😂 P.s. For those of you who aren't counting down, it's Friday tomorrow!
