This month is chock-full of cellphone deals from both the big carriers and the little guys. We’ve scoured the offerings and come up with our top picks — including money-saving iPhone bargains and family plans.

Up to $450 off a new iPhone from Verizon

If you need a new iPhone, then why not get it on the best network in the U.S.? Follow these steps to get a huge discount on a new iPhone:

  • Switch to Verizon from another carrier.
  • Buy the iPhone X, XR, XS or XS Max on monthly installments.
  • Trade in an eligible phone. (Various iPhones, Samsung Galaxy phones, Pixels and LG phones qualify.)
  • Get a $450 credit to your monthly bill over 24 months.

$200 bonus prepaid Mastercard from Verizon

If you’re into the above Verizon deal, then you’ll be happy to know it gets even better. The carrier is adding a bonus deal that gives you a $200 prepaid Mastercard when you switch to a Verizon unlimited plan. Choose from:

After you’ve made your phone and plan purchase, visit vzw.com/digitalrebatecenter and enter the promo code “SUMMERSWITCH” to claim your $200 prepaid Mastercard. If you claim this deal along with the trade-in deal listed above, you could get $650 in savings.

iPhone XR deal from Sprint

If you want a new iPhone but aren’t trying to spend $1,000 on one, then don’t miss this current offer from Sprint: For a limited time, lease the iPhone XR for just $15/month for 18 months. This deal is even better than the other buy-one-get-one deal the carrier is currently offering.

All you need to do is activate a new line with Sprint and you’ll receive billing credits to your account each month. What’s even better is that you’ll be eligible for an upgrade after one year, so you’ll be able to get your hands on the newest iPhone after a short time.

Sprint family plan deal

If you’re looking for a new phone plan for your family, then here’s one of the best family plan deals available now: Get five lines of unlimited data, talk and text for just $100/month. This deal is only valid to those bringing their own phone or buying one outright from Sprint (not valid for Flex lease plans).

You’ll pay $100/month for all five lines until June 2020. You’ll choose between Sprint’s Unlimited Basic or Unlimited Plus plans. Pro tip: Go with Unlimited Plus to get a huge (50GB) mobile hot spot allowance.

Metro’s family plan deal

This deal from Metro isn’t quite as good as Sprint’s five-line offer above, but it is on a better network — T-Mobile’s. If you’re worried about coverage — especially if your family members live and work in different cities — then you’re better off going with this family plan deal from Metro by T-Mobile.

You get four lines of unlimited data, talk and text for just $100/month on Metro’s Unlimited Family Plan. If you don’t mind spending an extra $10/month, upgrade to Metro’s $60 Unlimited Plan to get the following additional perks:

  • Google One and Amazon Prime subscriptions
  • 15GB LTE mobile hot spot (per line)
