Hey, let‘s chat about Mint Mobile‘s new family plan options and if they can save that household of yours some serious cash each month…

I wanted to have a quick, friendly chat about the wireless carrier Mint Mobile‘s recent move into offering new family plan options and whether their approach could fit and save your family money over the bigger carriers you normally consider.

I know you‘re a smart shopper, so sticking with Verizon, AT&T or even T-Mobile likely gives you comfort and confidence in coverage. But I think with some insights into Mint‘s pricing, performance and overall value proposition, you‘ll find their modern approach compelling and wallet friendly.

Let me start by giving you the key headlines in plain English…

Mint Mobile‘s Family Plan Summarized

Unlike the traditional family plans you‘re used to from the major carriers where you pay per line, Mint Mobile takes a different approach.

  • With their family plan you simply bundle up multiple individual Mint talk, text and data buckets.
  • Each family member picks the data tier they need – starting as low as 5GB.
  • Everyone gets to tap into fast nationwide 5G and 4G without complex upgrades.
  • And your monthly all-in cost for say 4 lines averages $50-75 less than elsewhere!

Big savings comes from Mint‘s online only, bring-your-own-device model passing those cost cuts to you. Let‘s walk through exactly what you and your family would pay…

Comparing Mint Prices with Major Carrier Family Plans

Here is how those enticing Mint Mobile plan rates shape up for a family of 4 next to what Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile currently offer:

CarrierMonthly Cost (4 Lines)
Mint Mobile* $60-$100 ($15-$25 per line)
Verizon$140 ($35 per line)
AT&T$140 ($35 per line)
T-Mobile$120 ($30 per line)

As you can see, the savings with Mint really add up – putting potentially over $500 annually back in your pocket!

Now, doing a little self promotion here, but as a wireless tech analyst I‘ve run the numbers on detailed scenarios. Here is one example that factors in new device costs as well over 2 years:

  • Family of 4 with two kids who don‘t need huge data buckets
  • Comparing Mint‘s 5GB & 10GB plans against a typical Verizon setup
CarrierMonthly Service FeesNew Phones2 Year Total
Mint Mobile$90/month$1,600$3,760

Even with paying more upfront for devices without carrier discounts, over 2 years you would you save $800+… that‘s serious cash for the family vacation fund!

Hopefully these real world calculations showcase why Mint Mobile makes for an attractive alternative. But what about network coverage and speed?

You‘re Not Sacrificing Coverage or Performance

Now, I can guess what you might be thinking… sure I save a heap load on my bill, but I must be sacrificing when it comes to coverage and download speeds with this upstart Mint, right?

Great question, but rest assured Mint leverages T-Mobile‘s very solid 4G LTE and nationwide 5G networks. While no carrier is perfect in every rural corner of America, the vast majority of households have a nearby T-Mobile tower providing quality connectivity.

Here are a few facts around performance:

  • In OpenSignal‘s recent testing, T-Mobile and Verizon were nearly tied on average 5G download speeds
  • PCMag found in their Fastest Mobile Networks tests that T-Mobile matched or beat Verizon in most major metro markets
  • Unless you routinely road trip off the beaten path, Mint‘s network foundation shouldn‘t let you down

And remember – Mint offers 7 day risk free trial on plans. So put coverage to the test across your normal driving routes. I think you‘ll be happily surprised at the performance you get while keeping more green in your wallet.

Let‘s recap the key questions I‘m sure are bouncing around in your head at this point when weighing if Mint‘s approach could be that refreshing cost saver for your family…

Key Questions to Consider for Your Family‘s Needs

  • Do we stream tons of high resolution video daily on phones? If yes, unlimited data is key
  • Can we purchase unlocked iPhone/Android devices outright vs subsidies? Cuts bill but adds cost
  • Anyone still clinging to 3G or really old phones? Ensure 5G ready devices
  • How rural/offbeat are our common travel routes? Check coverage map for confidence
  • Would saving $500-$800 over 2 years make a difference for us? Could fund that dream trip!

I know that was a whole lot of info I just rattled off! But I wanted to showcase why Mint Mobile‘s new family plan offerings make for such a compelling value alternative to Verizon, AT&T etc.

Hopefully this breakdown gives you ample food for thought before your next wireless bill hits the mailbox. We save money everyday by cutting the cable cord. Why not on your mobile devices that you actually use MORE than your TV!

Let me know if any other questions pop up as you wrap those brains around a new approach to keeping your family connected while also keeping more money in your collective pockets. Happy to chat more or help research plans. Just shout!
