For a limited time, you can get a nice discount on a phone that’s already priced low – the $79.99 Motorola Moto G from Boost Mobile. Through July 14, get $20 off the Moto G plus free ground shipping using Boost Mobile coupon code MOTOG7CJ20.
Boost Mobile’s plans start at $35 a month for unlimited talk and text plus 1 GB of full-speed data. You can also choose 5 GB for $45 or 10 GB for $55 a month. If you exceed your data allotment in a month, speeds slow down to 2G for the remainder of the billing period.
The Moto G uses Sprint’s 3G network rather than the much faster 4G LTE, but for those who want a smartphone mostly for email, texting and phone calls, this phone is the perfect economical choice. It offers a gorgeous 4.5″ 720p HD display, 5 MP rear-facing camera with HD camcorder, 1.3 MP front-facing camera with HD camcorder and 8 GB of onboard memory. The 8 GB of memory should work well for most people, particularly those who use cloud storage services like Dropbox for their pictures and videos.
The Moto G weighs 4.59 ounces and measures 5.11″ by 2.59″ by .45″ and offers fantastic battery life.
The best thing about Boost Mobile is that there’s no contract, no commitment and no credit check. Anyone can enjoy a great phone from Boost Mobile without signing a two-year contract (or any contract, for that matter). Prepaid carriers like Boost Mobile make especially great choices for kids and teenagers, since they can’t rack up additional charges with large numbers or text messages or by going over a set data amount.
Teenagers also tend to lose or damage their phones more often than grown-ups, and Boost Mobile has a wide variety of fairly inexpensive phones, too. Remember that even if you buy cell phone insurance, you’ll likely pay a hefty copayment to replace a lost or damaged smartphone, sometimes as high as $150 with standard mobile phone carriers.
You can use the Boost Mobile coupon code MOTOG7CJ20 for $20 off a Moto G, or choose one of Boost Mobile’s other nice smartphones.
