Spring has finally sprung! There really is something motivating about this time of year. This is when I enjoy spring-cleaning, organizing and decluttering, not only our home, but also our budget. Every year, I take a hard look at just where our money is going and search for ways to simplify and save. This year I am starting by focusing on tech.
When was the last time you looked at your budget and analyzed how much your family is spending on cable, internet and mobile? I was shocked when I calculated ours. Turns out that making payments to individual companies each month is not working well for our budget. I was surprised to recently learn that Xfinity now offers a mobile service – Xfinity Mobile. This could definitely simplify things, but does it offer a savings? I’m excited to share with my readers what I’ve learned.
You can get up to five lines of unlimited nationwide talk and text included with your Xfinity Internet at no extra cost, so all you pay for is data. Plus, it combines America’s largest, most reliable 4G LTE with the most WiFi hotspots. Remember with Xfinity you have access to 18 million Xfinity WiFi hotspots. Together, that is not only convenient but can be a huge savings.
Some of my first thoughts were, but I paid off my iPhone, it’s brand new, and I love my iPhone, so why would I want to start over? GUESS WHAT!? You can bring your own iPhone to Xfinity Mobile. It’s about time! This could be a game changer for me. Xfinity can accommodate my current device as well as the device upgrades the rest of my family prefer to get.
In addition to Xfinity Mobile, my spring-cleaning routine encompasses the following list of great money-saving tech tips.
Spring- clean – by ditching your old devices and get the latest devices with Xfinity Mobile. It’s all about options.
Organize – Mobile and internet work as one with Xfinity Mobile. I love this. Simplifying is key for me.
Declutter – by getting your data By the Gig or Unlimited. Because not every family has the same needs when it comes to data.
A couple more things to consider:
You also want to be sure to comparison shop, look for bundling opportunities. It sounds simple but think about what you might need from your cell service. Do you have a family? Does adding more lines make sense? Figure out what your needs are and then find a service that fits.
When deciding on a plan, check with your internet provider to see if they offer access to free WiFi when you’re on the go. Also, know your way around your phone. If your carrier gives you free network access, make sure you are using it by familiarizing yourself with the wireless settings on your phone.
