Get $50 for switching to Ting Wireless thru Wednesday!

So, I’m cleaning out my email today (Oof.   Pardon me for yelling, but good gracious heavens, I AM ALWAYS BEHIND ON EMAIL!).

Anyway, I came across a Ting email from September 1st, letting me know that my Ting affiliate link gives you guys a $50 credit instead of the normal $25 credit through the end of September.

Which is GREAT, but it’s September 26th as I’m typing this.


This is why I could never manage to be a deal blogger, even if that kind of thing blew my hair back.

I’d just never keep up with the influx of deals.


Since this is a deal way better than, say, a $1 coupon for cereal, I thought I’d throw out a quick post to let you all know about it before it’s too late!

$21/month smartphone plan through Ting Wireless

Quick review: Ting is the wireless company Mr. FG and I use.   It runs on the Sprint network, you can bring your own phone or buy one from them, there’s no contract, and it’s basically a pay-as-you-go kind of plan that flexes with you every month.

Sooo, you don’t have to pay for a bunch of minutes or data or texts that you don’t need, which is awesome.

I love, love, love Ting because it allows me to have all the advantages of a smartphone, but because it’s basically pay-as-you-go, I’m not tempted to be glued to it 24/7.

It’s sort of the best of both worlds.

And Mr. FG and I generally manage to keep our bill around $20-$30 for TWO iPhones (our usage varies, depending on if we’ve been traveling or not.)

Here’s a post I wrote with oodles more details about Ting’s service.


If you’re not sure that Ting will save you money, use the savings calculator to compare Ting’s prices with your last several wireless bills.

If you decide Ting’s gonna save you all the dollars, click here to open an account with them and you’ll get a $50 credit.

(But only through the end of September, so if you’re gonna sign up, do it pronto!)

As always, holler if you’ve got questions.


Disclosure: Ting links are affiliate links, which means Ting pays me for each person that signs up through my links.   There’s no extra cost to you-actually, you get $50 for using my link!

Basically, it’s a win-win-win situation.   And my enthusiasm for Ting is 100% authentic…we had Ting service before I ever became an affiliate, and we pay for our Ting service every month just like you all do.

Hi Kristen,

Just stumbled upon your website a few days ago and managed to get the $50 added to a new Ting account as we ordered two SIMs. It seems to have worked even though we didn't activate them until they arrived today.

So thanks a lot!

Yay! So very glad you got your $50.

Hello, I want to take advantage of your Ting offer but when I click on the link I get all sorts of warning messages from Firefox saying the link is untrusted and they cannot connect securely. I'm sure this is not the case, but it kind of scares me nonetheless. Is there a way I can just go directly to the Ting website and type in some sort of code for the discount? or is your link the only way?

Thanks and sorry to trouble you about this.

I don't know why browsers aren't trusting that link. I get that same message too on some browsers. It is a totally legitimate link...

As of this moment, I don't think I have another way to get you the discount, but I can check with my Ting rep and see what they have to say!

What is the best way to buy an Iphone to go with a Ting plan . Any ideas?

Mr. FG and I bought our refurbished iphones from Amazon Warehouse Deals. Here's where to find those:

I felt better buying my refurb through them than through some other third-party seller that I didn't really know and trust. Our refurbs have been great!

I just signed up with Ting about a month ago based on your recommendation. Didn't realize the thing about the affiliate links, or I would have done it through your link. Sorry about that!

But I just wanted to thank you for lettings us all know about it because it's absolutely perfect for someone like me. I basically use the phone for emergencies, but wanted the convenience of a phone and point & shoot camera all in one (fewer things to carry on my bike.) I LOVE that I can use WiFi data at home for free - it's perfect for testing the mobile websites that I'm developing, but I have the option to use network data if I'm out and about and need to for some reason.

My first month's bill is $12, and that included a lot of messing around figuring things out that I wouldn't normally do, so I think next month I'll probably only pay $6-$9... which actually makes it cheaper than my old flip phone pre-paid plan was!

So thanks again!

Yay! I'm so delighted that Ting is working out well for you.
