Thanks to Republic Wireless for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.
It’s interesting how advertising for wireless services has changed.
Years back, it seems like cell phone companies ran the show, because I suppose they figured they had a product you wanted and, hey, where else were you going to get it?
Now, times have changed. Because pretty much everyone has a cell phone, wireless services have to compete for customers who already have a cell phone and plan. That’s a little more difficult than just recruiting brand new customers.
Which means things are better than ever for us as consumers.
Because of this shift, cell phone companies are working to make your bills easier to understand, to reduce your expenses, and basically do whatever they can to incentivize you to switch. That also means there are a lot of up-and-coming wireless brands which allow you to save a ton of money – without having to sacrifice reliable service.
The one I just learned about (and have totally fallen in love with) is Republic Wireless.
The Benefits of Republic Wireless
I’m not kidding when I say a lot of people reduce their phone bills by a third over the big companies by switching to Republic Wireless.
Their cheapest plan starts at $15 a month for unlimited talk, text, and WiFi data (great for teens who are just getting their first phone), but their most popular plan is $30 a month for 2 GB cell data and unlimited everything else.
Which means for two lines, you’d be paying around $60 a month (plus taxes – about $3 a line.).
Because if you’re with one of the big cell phone companies, you’re probably paying $160 (or more) for a comparable plan.
That’s $100 a month that could go somewhere else, like your emergency fund, or toward your debt snowball, or toward that vacation you’re dying to take. Whatever!
The point is, any money you can save is going to take away stress and make you a lot happier.
Not only is it a huge money-saver over the “big companies”, but you don’t have to sacrifice quality to get the discount.
The reason for that is their Adaptive Coverage which features Bonded Calling technology. Bonded calling is Republic’s patented technology that uses simultaneous connections over WiFi 3G, and 4G LTE data networks to help improve quality on WiFi calls. That means it’s like a single awesome network, just running off multiple networks.
Isn’t technology great? 😉
No contracts (and a 14-day guarantee).
I love no-contract phones. It means that if you find a better deal elsewhere, you’re free to up and leave – no strings attached.
They also offer a 14-day guarantee, so you can order a phone, try the service for 14 days, and if you wind up hating it, you just send back the undamaged phone and they’ll give your money back.
It’s always nice to know that companies are willing to take a risk to stand behind their products.
Good phone selection.
If you’re an iPhone devotee, stay with me.
I’m not gonna lie – I was a little hesitant to switch to an Android phone. I’ve been a long-time iPhone user, even though I’ve been a little disgruntled with them as of late. But the phone I’ve been using is amazing. It’s a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
There was a learning curve to it after having used an iPhone for so long, but the camera is awesome and takes super clear and detailed photos. Plus, the phone in general works better with the Google services we use.
This is a super cool feature for someone who’s prone to losing their phone but still needs to stay connected.
You know, not that that’s me or anything.
If you’re looking for a better deal on your wireless service, I recommend Republic Wireless 100%.
What would you do with an extra $100 a month?
