Mint Mobile is celebrating two years in business. The Ultra Mobile powered T-Mobile MVNO launched in the summer of 2016. To mark the two year anniversary, Mint Mobile has announced that their $5 starter kit now comes risk free with a 100% money back guarantee.
Mint Mobile's starter kit allows customers to test drive the service for 7 days. During that time span, subscribers are alloted 100 minutes, 100 text messages and 100 MB of data. Customers who find that the service isn't for them can now request a refund at the end of their trial. Those who want to continue with their subscription can still apply the cost of the starter kit to the plan of their choice.
As always, a Mint Mobile starter kit comes with two different SIM cards. Prospective customers can use one SIM card to test the service out without porting their number over. If the customer is happy with their service, they can then use the second SIM card to port their number over.
"Consumers continue to get smarter and smarter about their wireless use,” commented Tyler Leshney, President of Mint Mobile. "Our customers are bathed in Wifi and understand the balance between fixed and mobile data needs. Furthermore, just as they now buy their razors, contact lenses and mattresses online, they understand that standing in lines at carrier stores really doesn’t make sense. At Mint, we’re giving consumers an easier way to get great wireless at a great price - and now it’s risk free.”
Added Aron North, Mint Mobile's Senior Vice President Of Marketing And Creative - "A huge part of Mint’s success is our transparency. Our customers know exactly what they’re paying for—unlimited talk and text and a right-sized data package—and they appreciate that. We want to share that love with as many people as possible, which is where the risk free trial program comes in."
