Strategies for using discounts for Straight Talk

If you haven’t heard of Straight Talk Wireless, you probably have been living in a cave for the past 15 years. They are the biggest pre-paid wireless cell phone providers out there. Their innovative business practices make them a viable alternative to the mainstream cell phone carries such as Tmobile, Verizon and AT&T. They are also famous for their exclusive deals with Zip2Save that result in unique Straight Talk coupons. The only catch is that there is no catch. By bringing millions of subscribers to the table, they are able to negotiate bulk rates and those deals are passed onto the customer.

It used to be that only people with income issues or bad credit would purchase a pre-paid wireless account. Over the years, more and more post-paid cell phone subscribers have been switching to companies like Straight Talk. Like many of the post paid cell phone companies, they are known as a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO). This means that they piggyback on the networks of bigger sites like Sprint, AT&T and Verizon. Depending on your geographical location as well as the make and model of the cell phone that you use, the network the cell phone uses switches to the most optimal one so that the connection is always working.

Why Straight Talk?

    1. MVNO technology ensures the best possible network no matter where you are. In certain cities in America, Verizon cell phone service is much stronger than Sprint. But in other cities (such as Boise, Idaho) AT&T and Sprint have the best network coverage.

    2. Cost. Most smart phones in this day and age cost an arm and a leg. The data plans are usually responsible for monthly charges that can reach upwards of $120. The large cell phone companies such as Verizon and AT&T charge a mandatory minimum for their plans, which ensures an expensive cell phone bill at the end of the month. The MVNO companies offer their unlimited plans for a $50 a month, no hidden fees.

Top reasons to switch to Straight Talk

The MVNO’s have really made strides in not only customer service, but value and quality offered over the past 5 years. Prior to 2013, the only reason recommended for switching to a pre-paid carrier was either your credit sucked or you couldn’t afford to give Verizon $100 a month. With the recent changes in the industry, it’s a no-brainer that everyone should switch to Straight Talk. There are other carriers such as Cricket Wireles, Tracfone and Boost Mobile, but they pale in size and service compared to Straight Talk. The recent 5gig increase in monthly bandwidth puts them in direct competition with the big wireless carriers. Without a doubt, the best reason to switch is the cost. Most monthly cell phone bills will be cut in half. Prior to switching, I was giving Tmobile $120 a month. My Straight Talk bill for January 2016 was $45. I was given unlimited data and 5gigs of bandwidth. With prices and service like this, why give the big 3 wireless carriers an extra $60 a month?
