It’s awards season. We are honoring the best movies, TV shows and music, so why not mobile plans, too? In this guide, you’ll find out who took home top honors in the mobile provider industry, and we’ll even connect you to the winners! You can easily find any types of plans we don’t cover below on our winners’ page.

If you’re happy with your cellphone plan, but you’re looking for a new iPhone, we’ve got those deals, too! It isn’t hard to find a budget phone these days, but “budget iPhones” are nearly unheard-of — until now. Check out Boost Mobile and Verizon’s deals below!

Deal No. 1: Best budget plan provider

If you’re looking for the best budget mobile plan, then Mint Mobile has the perfect deal for you. We can’t say enough about the carrier because it offers generous data plans at incredibly affordable prices. After trying it out for three months and taking advantage of its ultra-low introductory offer, you have the option to keep the deal going by purchasing its 12-month plan at the same introductory discount. That means you can pay your mobile bill annually for one, incredibly low, price.

Mint Mobile is an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator), which is a smaller mobile company that uses another major carrier’s network to offer customers quality data. Specifically, Mint Mobile operates off of T-Mobile’s network. Switching to Mint is easy, and if you’re not happy with their service in your area, you can get a full refund within seven days of purchasing a plan. You literally have nothing to lose by giving them a try.

Deal No. 2: Best family plan provider

If you get reliable coverage from Sprint in your area, then you cannot go wrong with its family plans. The carrier offers unlimited talk and text throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. It also gives you generous amounts of premium data for each line, plus perks like streaming services Hulu and Tidal.

The reason we’ve chosen Sprint as the best family plan provider is that it offers substantial discounts for adding more lines to your account. By “substantial discounts” we mean Sprint will give you free lines of service. Right now, you can get your third, fourth and even your fifth lines free if you switch to Sprint from another carrier and sign up for a qualifying unlimited plan. You only need to open three lines to benefit from this deal, but if you get five lines then you’re going to walk away with a truly massive discount.

Deal No. 3: Best unlimited prepaid provider

If you’re looking to skip the credit check, but still want the benefits of an unlimited data plan, then Visible might be the carrier for you. Like Mint Mobile, the provider is an MVNO. However, Visible operates on Verizon’s network, which offers more 4G coverage than any other provider in the nation.

With Visible’s prepaid unlimited plan, you will also get unlimited nationwide talk and text, and you’ll never pay roaming charges in the U.S. Visible also includes all taxes and fees in its ultra-low $40 per month price, and it even has a promotion going right now that lets you try out your first month for just $25!

Deal No. 4: Best budget iPhone

If you’re looking for an iPhone that doesn’t cost a fortune, then check out Boost Mobile’s iPhone 7 deal. For a limited time, you can get an iPhone 7 for just $29.99!

This promotion is available to those who switch to Boost Mobile from another carrier and open a new line of service that is a minimum of $50 per month. That means you’re also getting an unlimited data plan and perks at a great price. Even though the iPhone 7 isn’t iPhone’s latest device, it’s still a quality smartphone at an unbelievable price. Note that this is an in-store only offer, but it’s well worth the trip.

Deal No. 5: Best trade-in deal

If you have an old phone lying around the house, then you might as well turn it into a huge discount on your next premium device! Right now, you can get up to $700 off an iPhone 11 from Verizon Wireless. Since the purchase price of the phone is $700, that means you might be able to get it for free!

To qualify for this promotion, you will need to open a new line of service on an unlimited plan and trade-in an eligible device. You will also need to buy your iPhone 11 on a 24-month installment plan, as your discount will be given to you in the form of monthly billing credits.

That’s up to $500 in trade-in credits, plus a $200 prepaid Mastercard for signing up for a qualifying unlimited plan. To get your prepaid Mastercard, you will need to enter the promo code NEWYEAR200 at checkout. Enjoy your new iPhone 11!
