Getting A Great Deal On Prepaid Cell Phones

By: Shelly Walther

If you are looking to purchase a prepaid cell phone, make sure that you consider all of the options that will make you a happy consumer. Of course you are going to want the most updated technology that is available, and affordable, for you. These will include some of the special features that other prepaid handsets may not offer. Everyone wants a really nice cell phone that will offer them the best service and all the added amenities. Remember, not only can you save money on your plan you can save money on the handset. Here are some tips to help you purchase the cell phone you really want, and spend less.

o Make sure to check out your options for purchasing your prepaid cell phone handset. You can oftentimes find cheaper phones than are offered by carriers at department stores, and especially on the web. This is a great way to find some great deals!

o Minute cost matters! Not every carrier provides that same service and price per minute so it is important to shop around. Make sure that their service is worth their price. Make sure you know the per-minute charge because that is the easiest way to compare options.

o Bulk is better. Carriers often offer deals so that if you buy more minutes you end up saving more money. So, if you buy 350 minutes instead of 50 minute increments you can save some extra dough!

o Nights and weekend minutes are available with some providers, and if you purchase minutes to use during this time then you may end up paying an even lower rater per minute.

o By signing up for auto-pay you can usually save money, but it depends on the carrier. If you allow the carrier to charge you a certain amount of minutes each month, usually $20-$30 worth, then you will get a discounted rate.

Finding ways to save money using prepaid cell phones is getting easier and easier. Always remember to search around, and compare prices on both handsets and minutes. By doing this you will more than likely save a vast amount of money.
