Mint Mobile offers an additional 3 months service at no extra cost during Cyber Week

Mint Mobile is offering an additional 3 months of service when you sign up (new customers only) for a 3 month plan. For example, the 4GB plan which costs $45 for three months now costs $45 for six months, reducing the effective monthly rate from $15 per month to $7.50 per month. Similarly the 10GB plan which normally costs $60 for three months is now good for six months reducing the effective monthly rate to $10 per month, and so on. Finally the Unlimited plan costs only $90 for six months of service with this offer, which works out to $15 per month - not bad for an unlimited data plan.

One thing to note is that the plan prices do go up by quite a bit after the introductory period ends. In this case, after six month introductory period of this offer, the regular cost of the 4GB plan is $75 for three months (or $25 per month).
