Annual Phone Plans, 3 Month Plans, And 6 Month Plans Compared

Multi-month plans have been growing in popularity and for good reason. Subscribers may be able to save a lot more money on their phone plans if they are willing to pay for more than one month of phone service in advance. But there are trade-offs to consider.

Some things to consider before you subscribe to one of the multi-month plans below include:

Pros

  • Pay more save more. It’s that simple.
  • Pay your phone bill just once and don’t think about having to pay it again until months or even a year later.

Cons

  • Plans change all the time. If you pay too far ahead in advance you may miss out on a better offer later.
  • Paying for your plan up to a year in advance is money that could be spread out and spent elsewhere.

If you understand those pros and cons, go ahead and explore the plan options below. You can choose from either 3, 6, or 12-month annual plan options. Be advised that most providers consider one month to be equal to 30 days of service and therefore an annual plan is equal to 360 days of service.

One of the most popular multi-month plan providers around is Mint Mobile. While others may have offered annual plans first, Mint Mobile is the first to offer those and other multi-month plans exclusively as their business model. They do not offer any pay-by-the-month phone plans. Thanks to the success of Mint Mobile, there are now many Mint Mobile competitors and alternatives on the market that offer similar types of plans. Some have gone as far as to copy their same price points.
