Mint is an MVNO (or mobile virtual network operator) that believes cellphone plans — like toilet paper and dog food — can be cheaper when you buy in bulk. Want big data at low prices? Switch to Mint SIM, a prepaid carrier, and you’ll get unlimited talk, text and 10GB of high-speed data for $25 a month.

Compared to other carriers’ 10GB plans, it’s a pretty sweet deal.

How does this work?

In order to get this offer, you’ll need to pay for three months upfront of service on Mint SIM’s “Large” 10GB plan, which would cost $75 (three times the monthly price of $25). Mint will then mail you a SIM card, and you can activate your service. (Not sure how SIM cards work? Don’t worry, we’ve got some easy answers here.) You have the choice of either bringing your phone with you or purchasing one from Mint’s website. And you’ll be able to keep your old number.

The finer print …

  • This plan is compatible with most GSM phones (devices that run on T-Mobile or AT&T networks).
  • Mint SIM will honor returns for SIM cards (unopened and not activated) within 10 days of order purchase for a refund.
  • This promotion price is available only for a limited time and will return to regular pricing once the promotion is over. See carrier’s site for pricing details.
  • The promotion is only available for new customers.
