H2O Wireless is now offering multi-month recharge discounts. Customers who choose to recharge their plans for either 3, 6, or 12 months at a time will receive either 50% off their 3rd month of service, their 6th month of service for free, or months 11 and 12 for free. A representative from H2O Wireless told BestMVNO that these are not multi-month plans but rather "a limited time discount offer on multi-month recharges." Update 1/17/2020 - An H2O Wireless rep now says that the discount offerings will be made permanent and are not a limited-time promotional offering.

The single month plans do come with an auto-pay discount, and that does narrow the savings a customer will get compared to paying for multiple-months of service at a time. The table below compares the savings customers would get by enabling autopay on their accounts vs the multi-month recharge discounts.
I have listed in parenthesis the total price customers would pay over the given time frame if they just enabled autpay on their accounts and paid for service one month at a time.
|3-Months||$50 ($54)||$75 ($81)||$100 ($108)||$125 ($135)||$150 ($162)|
|6-Months||$100 ($108)||$150 ($162)||$200 ($216)||$250 ($270)||$300 ($324)|
|12-Months||$200 ($216)||$300 ($324)||$400 ($432)||$500 ($540)||$600 ($648)|
Whether you want to call these multi-month plans or just multi-month recharge discounts, the industry trend continues. More and more providers are offering multi-month discount plans in an attempt to retain customers for longer periods of time.
