More Budgeting

After switching our cell phone service from Verizon to one of T-Mobile’s plans, we save $1,080 each year which now we use on family trips instead!

Do you find yourself wondering if you are overspending on your cell phone bill? 🙋‍♀️

With prices out of control in pretty much every area, everyone is looking where they can save. It turns out, that overpaying a cell phone bill is surprisingly avoidable. 🙅‍♀️ I can say from personal experience switching to a T-Mobile cell phone plan has saved my family HUNDREDS year after year. So while watching price tags rising all around me, it’s such a relief that T-Mobile continues to offer steady wireless at an amazing rate.

In addition, my family loves to travel, so trying to find ways to cut costs in order to save money for trips has always been important to us. Making the switch to T-Mobile was the most convenient and easiest way to spend every hard-earned dollar on what truly matters most to us.

Plus, we got a TON of travel benefits! Right now, you can score One Full Year of AAA Roadside Assistance, High-Speed Data Abroad, and Full-Flight Wi-Fi! These perks are perfect for making traveling a breeze while trying to stay in touch with friends and family or completing that last-minute project for work!

You may be wondering exactly how much we saved, so let’s run some numbers!

Originally, we had Verizon which was way too expensive. We then switched to Sprint (before they merged with T-Mobile). If we stayed with Verizon, it would be over $3,000 annually at around $65/month per line for a family of four! With Sprint, we paid $249/month for the same 4-line plan. This amounted to almost $2,988 a year, which was still way too much!

Once we switched to T-Mobile, our bill went down to $170/month with our Magenta MAX plan, which totals $2,040 annually for 4 people. I don’t know about you, but roughly $43 per line each month is a steal. 👏 That’s almost $1000 a year we get to keep!

I’d say we made the right choice considering we have unlimited data, talk, and text, plus a 5G network. And we get a bunch of additional value included in our plan, which means more savings! With T-Mobile, we get our Netflix subscription included, a year of Apple+ TV, a year of Paramount+, free scam protection, and of course the travel benefits – all included!

In short, T-Mobile has saved my family $1,080 each year instead of staying with Verizon, which means I personally save $270. That’s the cost of round-trip JetBlue flight to go visit my sister in Austin or to my favorite place on earth, Disney World!

T-Mobile Military

If it’s not clear by now, there’s so much saving potential with T-Mobile plans!

My Hip sidekick Bryn pays $268/month for a family of 5 with Verizon, but with T-Mobile, she could be paying $200/month with the Magenta MAX plan. And this would have ALL the same features her current plan has. If you don’t feel like running the numbers yourself, that’s a savings of $816 each year!

Another Hip teammate Lina currently pays $203 a month for 5 people on Verizon, and it includes a $25 payment on her daughter’s phone. You might be thinking, “Hey, that’s actually not that bad of a rate,” and you’d be right, but it’s important to note her rate is lower because of a military discount.

But T-Mobile also offers a military discount, too! Active-duty military, veterans, and their families can save 50% with a Magenta Military plan! This means if Lina and her family switched to Magenta MAX Military, their plan for 5 lines would be just $160, and only $32 per line. That’s a savings of $216 each year with all the same extra benefits included — even more money back in their pockets!

Switching to T-Mobile is the easiest way my family has saved money on our cell phone bill with no compromises on quality.

T-Mobile’s low monthly costs are at no expense to their service, either. My network connection is speedy and reliable. Believe me, I’ve experienced firsthand certain areas that had spotty service with my old cell provider, so I no longer take a working network for granted.

With my unlimited network, I’m able to keep in contact with loved ones who live across the country (like my sister in Austin), and I don’t have to worry about using up my data. Better yet, with all the money we’re saving, we can ditch Facetime and get in some real-life face time instead! 😄 Planning trips together as a family is less stressful knowing we’ve covered a bulk of the cost with our cell phone plan savings and it wouldn’t be possible if we didn’t make the switch to T-Mobile years ago.

Plus, you can’t beat all the freebies with T-Mobile Tuesdays! 🎉

    Agree with you 💯% about leaving Verizon and going to T-Mobile!!! We were with Verizon over 30 years and never had the guts to leave until we knew cell service was comparable with another carrier. Well….I’m here to say that T-Mobile has excellent customer service and great cell tower coverage. No issues at all after a year!! The smartest move we ever made!
    Verizon doesn’t take care of their loyal customers at all. They only offer deals to NEW customers. Then your bill will continue to rise year after year, guaranteed!! Trust me….
    T-Mobile is AWESOME!!👍🤩🥳👏❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
