2017 Prepaid Plan Promotions Currently Available With More Data for Less Money – Updated
With prepaid mobile phone service, saving money is easy. Customers can switch from carrier to carrier whenever a good deal comes out, since there are no expensive consequences like termination fees. Therefore, we have gathered the best 2017 prepaid plan promotions that can save you significant amount of money or give you more data for what you are already paying.
Some of the included promotions are better than others given that customers get to keep promotional goodies when promo ends. But even when that’s not the case, you can always take advantage of a good deal and switch after it ends if not happy with the service. Carriers, of course, count on customers staying with them after that period. However, that depends on many factors like coverage, quality of service, getting proper help when needed and not just the cost.

In addition, Verizon is giving additional 1GB of data to customers who sign in to autopay so that means potential 8GB for $50 and 13GB for $70 per month.
