This month carriers are offering some great discounts on the newest iPhones and Android phones. Check out our favorite deals of this month and get in quick before these offers disappear!

This month Verizon dominate the deals, with great offers on all of the latest phones. Verizon’s deals are better than AT&T’s because AT&T requires a DirecTV subscription in order to be eligible for most of their deals.

Sprint: Unlimited everything for just $25 a month

If you want an unlimited cellphone plan but don’t want to pay upwards of $50 per month, Sprint has a deal for you. For just $25 a month, you can get unlimited data, talk and text for as long as your line is active with Sprint. The Unlimited Kickstart plan doesn’t come with extras like mobile hot spot and a Hulu subscription, but for $25 a month, it’s still one of the best deals out there today.

Verizon: Free 5G plan + up to $650 off a 5G phone

Not everyone has access to Verizon’s blazing-fast 5G speeds yet, but you can still be one of the first to get your hands on Samsung’s first 5G-ready phone. Simply switch to Verizon on any of the carrier’s unlimited plans and get a $200 prepaid Mastercard. If you trade in an eligible phone, you could get an additional $450 credit to your account — that’s a total savings of $650! If you happen to be one of the lucky ones living in Verizon’s 5G areas, the carrier is also offering free 5G access if you preorder the Samsung Galaxy S10 5G on either the Above Unlimited or Beyond Unlimited plans.

Verizon: Samsung Galaxy S10e BOGO

If both you and your partner are in need of new phones, don’t miss out on this deal from Verizon. For a limited time only, buy a new Samsung Galaxy S10e on monthly installments and get a second one for free! (To qualify, you do have to maintain both on your Verizon account until the installments have been paid.) What’s great about this deal is that you have the option to switch the S10e out for one of the more expensive S10 models — Galaxy S10 or S10+. If you choose one of these phones, your second one will be discounted by $750, but it won’t be free.

Cricket: 50% off a Samsung Galaxy S9

It may not be the newest phone on the market, but if you’re sick of paying close to $1,000 for a new smartphone, then check out Cricket’s offer on the Samsung Galaxy S9. Right now, you can get this phone at 50% off from Cricket. All you need to do is switch to Cricket Wireless and port in your current number. The Samsung Galaxy S9 will cost you just $274.99 upfront, which is an awesome price for a phone that was unveiled just a year ago.

Verizon: Up to $650 off the newest iPhones

If you’re an iPhone fan, then Verizon has the best offer on the newest models right now. Switch to one of Verizon’s unlimited plans — Go Unlimited, Beyond Unlimited, or Above Unlimited — and get a prepaid Mastercard with $200 of credit. Plus, trade in an eligible phone, and you could get up to an additional $450 credited to your Verizon account. That’s a total of $650 in savings just for switching to one of America’s top networks and buying one of the best iPhones available.
