Students Can Save With a Switch to Boost Mobile

By Elana Goodwin on October 23, 2017

As a college student, you’re always looking for ways to save money, especially since tuition and associated college costs are getting higher. That’s why Boost Mobile is introducing several new initiatives designed to help keep the cost of its wireless plans affordable to college students, according to a recent press release.

Last month, Boost Mobile announced that taxes and fees were now included in the total plan price of service for new and existing customers. That change means customers will now save more and Boost Mobile offers several great value and flexible data plan options.

Their $50 Unlimited Gigs plan includes unlimited talk, text, and optimized streaming videos, gaming, and music with unlimited 4G LTE data for almost everything else. (The total sales price includes the charge for (1) services and (2) taxes and fees. Video streams at up to 480p+ resolution, music at up to 500kbps, streaming cloud gaming at up to 2Mbps. Data de-prioritization applies during congestion.)

This initiative is just one way that Boost Mobile is showing their commitment to providing customers with the best service at the most affordable cost, getting rid of additional fees on wireless plans.

Plus, Boost Mobile is now offering free phones to students who switch to them. The free phone offer ends 10/31/17 so you’ll want to hurry in before then to make the switch. (See participating dealers for more details.)

To switch, head to a local Boost Mobile store, switch to the $50 Unlimited Gigs plan, and pick from a diverse selection of free phones, including the Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge, LG Tribute HD, and Motorola moto e4. For students who are not ready to give up their iPhone or Android, no worries. Bring your phone in and get a free month of Unlimited Gigs on Boost Mobile.

But hurry — this offer is only valid 10/13/17–1/29/18 and available for new customers activating the $50 plan in select markets. For more information, head to to find out if your phone is eligible and what else is required at the time of activation.

Boost Mobile is also offering a referral program intended to reward its loyal brand ambassadors. Customers can earn a $25 account credit for each friend they refer, up to $500 per year and you can start today by referring or registering as a referral!

Additionally, through December 2017, Boost Mobile will choose one customer to receive a new device every month just for bringing a Boost Buddy to the Boost Community. Participants must be active Boost customers, with the potential winner already being a Community Member in good standing.
