This blog post is part of a paid Megan Media and Cricket Wireless blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own.
Cricket Wireless has selected me to be one of their representatives, and I couldn’t be more excited! I love my cell phone; my daughter loves her cell phone. What we do not love is paying an astronomically high cell phone bill. Cricket Wireless has us covered on that front, and now that I’m a representative, I’ll be telling you all about the great ways you can save with this fantastic company!
Cricket Wireless — Excellent Coverage for Those Who Aren’t Made of Money
While my frequent travel might make it appear otherwise, I am certainly not made of money. As most of my regular readers know, I am in the process of getting a divorce, and one of the hardest parts of this transition is adjusting to being a single-income household…with a teenager who has expensive tastes! I’ve recently begun to pare down our living expenses and one of our biggest household expenses, is actually our cell phone bill — it’s second only to our car insurance! I am not happy about paying such a hefty bill each month, especially since my ex-husband’s recent job change means a serious reduction in alimony. I need to save money wherever I can, and ditching a sky-high cell bill is the first place to start!
So let’s get into why I’m excited to be a representative for Cricket Wireless!
The Benefits of Cricket Wireless Smartphones
You won’t be using a dinosaur phone with Cricket Wireless! Right now, they are even offering select 4G LTE smartphones as low as $19.99 when you switch! To get this deal, it does require porting your number to a new qualified plan and the minimum plan requirement is $40 a month. See offer details below.
I know that this is a point of concern for many when switching from a big-name mobile carrier, and it was one of mine, too! As you know, I travel almost weekly, and photography is a huge part of my blog and my lifestyle in general. I love knowing that I can continue to take amazing photographs on a quality smartphone after switching to Cricket Wireless. Whether you have an Android or Apple device, you’ll be sure to find one that fits your lifestyle at a reasonable price!
Cricket Wireless also offers MORE 4G LTE coverage nationwide than T-Mobile or Sprint!* You won’t be using a dinosaur phone, and you won’t be stuck on a dinosaur network, either!
And, unlike other carriers, Cricket’s plan pricing includes monthly taxes and fees, so the plan you select costs exactly what you think it will. I know many of us look at our bills each month and are shocked at all the extras tacked on to our plan fees…costs that often make us go over our monthly budget. I am all about sticking to a budget right now, and I already feel a sense of relief knowing that the plan I choose with Cricket Wireless will be the actual amount I end up paying!
Bring Your Current Phone Over to Cricket Wireless
If you love your phone, ask about bringing it over to Cricket when you switch phone services. You can find out if your current smartphone is compatible with Cricket’s network here.
For those who travel often, whether it’s for work or pleasure, you’ll be happy to know you can use your phone in Canada and Mexico, too! With a $50 or $60 per month plan, you can use your smartphone like a local for calls and texts while traveling in Mexico and Canada, as long as the majority of your monthly calls and texts are in the U.S. See details below.
I also love the Group Save benefits of Cricket Wireless. With Group Save, you can save up to $100 a month on your bill when you add up to 5 additional lines!
When you add it all up, you get another major selling point for Cricket Wireless: overall ease. I don’t know about you, but I’m totally down with saving money AND hassle. I’ve had enough of both with my cell service over the years!
Cricket Wireless — Make the Switch. Save Money and Save Annoyance
With the easy-to-understand plans, huge network coverage and great pricing, Cricket Wireless has positioned itself as a major player in the cellular provider market. If your monthly bill is more like a monthly gut punch, check out Cricket Wireless. You’ll be happy you did!
