Discounted Cell Phone Plans

Discounted Cell Phone Plans

( – When you’re living on a fixed income, you have to get the most out of every dollar. Cell phone plans are one expense that can add up if you aren’t careful. For example, if you go over your data, the company may charge you extra, and your $60 bill could balloon into $100. The good news is there are senior discounts available.

The first thing you should know is most wireless companies offer discounted plans for seniors. Make sure you ask before you sign a contract. Here are some of the deals offered by providers:

  • Verizon Wireless offers two lines for $80 to Florida residents 55 and older who enroll in autopay.
  • AT&T has a 10% discount on monthly charges and 15% off of certain accessories for AARP members. The company also offers the AT&T Senior Nation plan for those 65 or older. Customers will get 500 nights and weekends minutes, unlimited mobile-to-mobile calling and 200 anytime minutes.
  • Sprint has an Unlimited 55+ plan that offers two lines for $35 per month for each line.

Those are just three of the major companies’ offers. AARP members may qualify for other discounts, as well.

Keep in mind, some of the plans might vary by state. You’ll want to double check with the providers to make sure the discounts are available where you live. And as always, don’t be afraid to shop around for the best deal before you settle on one.
