51 Tips To Save Tons of Money
1. Don’t Upgrade Your Cell Phone
When a new phone model comes out, you may be tempted to run out and buy it. This is not a wise move. First off, if you are in the middle of a contract, many times you will not be able to get the phone at the lower advertised price. You will have to pay the full price. And this price can be shocking.
For a new model that costs $199 with a new two year contract, you will pay the full price of $599 for the phone!! If you simply wait until your contract is up, then renew, you can get the phone for the lower price.
In addition, if it is a brand new model, it might have some glitches. There is an old saying that says when a new model comes out, wait until the next generation comes out to buy the current version. For as much testing the company does on the phone, it never is the same in the real world. Wait for the next version and avoid all the headaches.
Also by waiting, another model might come out that you like even more than the one you currently want. Simply wait and save some money.
Lastly, don’t just buy a new phone when you crack your phone screen. It’s much cheaper to get it fixed!
2. Use Discount Cell Phone Service
Instead of sticking with the big boys (Verizon, AT&T, etc.) and their large monthly bills for service, switch over to a discount provider. These days the smaller carriers have networks that rival the big players but don’t come with the price.
For example, I’ve been with Cricket now for over a year. They use AT&T cell towers so the coverage I get with them is exactly the same that I was getting when I was with AT&T. The catch: I am paying just $35 a month for service. That includes unlimited calls and texts and 2.5 GB of data. If you switch, you can earn a $25 account credit.
