When was the last time you really looked at your wireless bill? There’s a good chance you’re paying more than you need to, especially if you’re 55 and up.

Switching providers might sound like a hassle, but our sponsor T-Mobile makes it easy. “What if my phone isn’t paid off?” you ask? Good news. Our sponsor T-Mobile will save you from paying too much on wireless by paying off your phone (up to $1,000) and providing a discounted unlimited plan just for those 55+.

Right now, T-Mobile is offering its biggest phone payoff EVER. If you’re ready to save on your monthly phone bill and get up to $1,000 to pay off your phone, keep reading.

Keep the phone you love

Here at the Komando HQ, we’re all about helping you save money. Your wireless bill is one of those recurring costs you can’t skip, but you can save.

Now when you switch to T-Mobile, they’ll pay off your eligible phone up to $1,000 via a virtual prepaid Mastercard. So bring the phone you love, keep your phone number and let T-Mobile pay off your phone for you, up to $1000.

The savings don’t end there. If you’re 55 or older, save more than 50% off AT&T and Verizon’s basic unlimited plans when you get 2 lines. Take advantage of this deal – it’s a no-brainer.

T-Mobile has unlimited rate plans just for people 55 and over chock full of benefits: Get two lines of unlimited data, talk and text for just $27.50 a line per month with AutoPay —with no hidden fees or surprise price hikes.

Here’s what else you get with the Essentials 55+ unlimited plan:

  • Scam Shield: T-Mobile’s network-level protection identifies and helps stop scam calls before you ever get the call.
  • 5G access included at no extra cost.
  • Unlimited texting in 210+ countries and destinations and 2G data in Mexico and Canada
  • 3G mobile hotspot data
  • Free stuff with T-Mobile Tuesdays: Each week, T-Mobile compiles great discounts, exclusive offers and gifts to thank their customers.

One more thing to keep in mind. Only one person on the account needs to be 55 or older, so this is a great plan to share with anyone in your family.

Making the right choice is easy

T-Mobile makes it easy to get the plan that’s right for your needs while saving you cash every single month.

AT&T and Verizon also offer plans for seniors — but only if you live in Florida and with a higher price tag than Essentials 55+. T-Mobile’s plans include all the features you need at a price that won’t break your budget.

If you aren’t yet 55 but still want to save money, check out T-Mobile’s discounts for veterans, service members and their families. It also offers discounts for state and local first responders and their families.

Stop wasting money and start getting the most out of your wireless plan.  Visit a T-Mobile store near you, click or call 1-800-T-MOBILE now.
