How Can I Lower My Boost Mobile Bill?
There are many ways you can achieve this, and you need to be cautious and monitor your usage to know if you are getting the best deal.
1. Remove or change your phone insurance
Cell phone carriers have a different protection plan that includes extended warranties, full-blown 24/7 technical support for Bluetooth devices in the home, and insurance. Standard insurance offers you enough coverage and also protects your phone if you lose it or it's stolen or damaged. It's the least expensive option to consider offered by the wireless career.
Switch from the premium protection plan and choose a basic insurance coverage to slash some dollars off your bill each month. Alternatively, you can remove insurance and save approximately $180 annually, depending on your current protection. Dropping your insurance is a risk if you just bought a brand new phone but makes great sense if you have an old phone.
2. Skip your phone upgrade
Your smartphone is built to serve you for at least 2-years. However, most people go for trade up after only 24 months, which locks you into additional payments for the next 24 months for the new phone and adds about $40 to your monthly bill. Retaining your smartphone for an extra year or more pays off eventually as you save more dollars. It's better to wait until the phone needs replacing, then upgrade it and consider choosing a used phone instead of a new one to save more money.
3. Go for discounts
Former and current service members, government employees, students, and employees of certain companies qualify for phone service discounts. The best way of finding that out is by calling Boost Mobile or stopping at one of their stores. You can email them to check your status and enjoy the discount. The discount slashes your Boost Mobile bill significantly.
4. Update your new service address
Relocation can be a blessing to you. For instance, someone moving from Washington to Oregon state saves an average of $170 annually in phone charges and wireless taxes. The figures are based on individual phone bills. Better still, your savings are more if you are on a family plan. Update your service address by logging in to your account then change the address under user profile the same way you do for your billing address.
5. Choose autopay
Boost Mobile operates like most wireless careers, as subscribers can slash at least $10 off their bill if they choose automatic payment. It means linking your checking account or debit card to the Boost Mobile account.
6. Go for prepaid
Making a switch to prepaid can slash your dollars off your bill besides the automatic payment discounts you get. You save an average of $15 per month, which is good news!
