Affinity Cellular has an ongoing promotion where new customers can get up to three months of service for free. The deal is for both customers who bring their own phones and customers who purchase one directly from Affinity Cellular. Customers who need a phone may also be able to get a free flip phone or smartphone. Full details of each promo are a bit sketchy, however, the code $50ADPROMO is needed at checkout to claim the free service offer.
Affinity Cellular models itself after Consumer Cellular by targeting the senior demographic and offering similar plans at similar price points. However, Affinity Cellular operates on the Verizon network whereas Consumer Cellular uses AT&T and T-Mobile for coverage. Affinity Cellular offers the following plans:
- $12.99/month/line ($10/month for first three months) - 350 minutes, 350 texts
- $15/month/line - unlimited talk and text
- $20/month - 1GB
- $25/month - 3GB
- $35/month - 7GB
- $40/month - 15GB
- $55/month - 35GB
All data containing plans include unlimited talk and text with shared data for multiple lines. Only the $55 plan includes throttled data. However, Affinity Cellular's terms state "Usage that exceeds the monthly usage (35GB) will be considered a violation of this Fair Use Policy and subject to overage charges." Overages are billed at a rate of $0.03 per MB.
Affinity Cellular makes no mention anywhere on its website or on its Facebook page which plans get three months of free service. However, the promo code itself may give a pretty indication since it has a monetary value in it of $50 (full promo code $50ADPROMO). So it's likely the promo code gets you a $50 account credit and the plans without data would be available for free for three months. The other plans are likely free or discounted for the first month with possible discounts in the second and third months depending on the plan you sign up for.
The free phone offers are long-running. They are the same offers previously discussed on BestMVNO in March of 2022. Customers can get a certified pre-owned iPhone 7 that comes with 5 months of service on the $25 plan with 3GB of monthly high-speed data for $114.99. That's $10 less than it would normally be to pay for 5 months of service alone.
The flip phone offer is for a certified pre-owned ZTE 233 Cymbal. It also comes with 5 months of service but only 500 minutes and 500 text messages per month for a total price of $34.99. That's a total of $22 cheaper than it would be to buy Affinity Mobile's cheapest phone plan without a phone. Affinity Mobile doesn't even offer the plan included with the flip phone as a stand-alone plan as it contains more talk and text than Affinity's base phone plan.
No end dates have been specified for the promos, but the three months free offer did launch over the holiday shopping season and could come to an end soon.
