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!

1. Sprint: Samsung Galaxy S9 for $10 per month

It may not be the newest Samsung Galaxy phone, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great phone. Sprint is offering a great deal on a new Samsung Galaxy S9 — lease it for just $10 per month. You’ll pay just $180 total to lease this phone for 18 months. You also have the option to upgrade it after a 12-month lease, so you can enjoy a newer model in no time. The only caveat is you have to activate a new line of service to get this deal.

2. Verizon: $250 Mastercard for switching

Verizon wants your business, and they want it now. The carrier is offering a prepaid Mastercard with $250 credit to customers who switch to one of their unlimited plans. You’ll need to bring your own compatible phone to qualify, but that’s pretty much it. If you also need a new phone, check out the next deal from Verizon that also includes a prepaid Mastercard.

3. Verizon: Up to $650 off with trade-in

If you need a new phone but don’t want to pay full price, then switch over to one of the best networks in the country and don’t pay full price. Verizon is offering two separate deals that will give you up to $850 in value. Here’s how it works: First, you’ll get a $200 prepaid Mastercard by simply activating a new line on one of Verizon’s unlimited plans. Second, you can get up to $650 in credits to help pay off a new phone, just by trading in an eligible phone. You can use this credit to help pay off a new Google Pixel 3, one of the new Samsung Galaxy S10 phones, or even one of the newest iPhones. All you need to do is buy one of these phones on monthly installments.

4. Sprint: Unlimited everything for just $25 per month

This is one of the cheapest unlimited data, talk and text plans on the market today. Unlimited plans usually run you around $40-$50/month, so now’s the time to get your hands on one of the best deals yet. All you need to do to be eligible is switch to Sprint from another carrier and bring your own (BYO) phone or buy one outright. Unfortunately this plan isn’t available for current Sprint customers or those wanting a Flex Lease plan.

Another noteworthy deal from Sprint is the Unlimited Kickstart plan. This one comes and goes every so often, and it’s hard to tell just how long this deal will be offered. For $25 per month, you can get unlimited data, talk and text, making this plan one of the cheapest unlimited plans available today.

5. Mint Mobile: 3-month plans for cheap

This isn’t really a limited-time offer from Mint Mobile, but the pricing is so great it’s worth mentioning. Mint Mobile offers great introductory rates for new customers, making their 3GB, 8GB and 12GB plans just $15, $20 and $25 a month, respectively. If you don’t need unlimited data, then these plans should definitely be on your radar. The great thing about Mint Mobile is that you can lock in this pricing for an entire year (versus just three months) simply by paying for the whole year upfront.

Bonus deal: $25 account credit from Tello

If you’re thinking of switching carriers, then consider Tello. The company is offering a $25 account credit to all new customers who buy a plan worth $5 to $39. Depending on your plan, you could get an entire month for free!
