While some parts of the country are trying to slowly reopen their businesses, the economic impact of the pandemic has been brutal and the economic uncertainty is likely to be with us for a long time to come. Deals to save money on just about anything are very welcome. Here are our three picks for the best deals on cellphones and plans for May.

Visible: Rock-bottom price on unlimited talk, text and data

One of the best ways to get on Verizon’s superior network at a great price is by signing up with Visible, a pre-paid wireless brand owned by Verizon. Visible’s one and only cellphone plan is already a steal at just $40 per month, giving you unlimited talk, text and data on the Verizon network. With their current deal, you can save even more by paying just $25 for your first month of service.

Red Pocket: 6 months of free service

The brand-new second-generation iPhone SE is here. Starting at just $400, this is the closest Apple comes to releasing a budget smartphone. While that price may be (relatively) low, it doesn’t mean you’ll have to compromise on performance. The iPhone SE is powered by the same industry-best A13 Bionic processor you can find in the iPhone 11.

Get your iPhone SE with Red Pocket and get six months of free service on their GSMA data plan which includes unlimited talk and text and 3GB of mobile data.

AT&T: Awesome trade-in deal for an iPhone 11

Itching to upgrade to the latest high-end iPhone? You don’t have to pay full price. Trade in your current device when switching to AT&T and get up to $700 in credit towards a new iPhone 11, 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max. To get maximum savings, you’ll need to sign on to one of AT&T’s unlimited plans plus trade in an eligible device including — but not limited to — an iPhone 7 or newer or Samsung Galaxy S9 or newer. If that’s not enticing enough for you, AT&T is also giving out $150 Visa Reward Cards to new customers switching from another carrier.
