2 Ways to Save on Your Cell Phone Bill

Each month, Verizon sends me a bill for my iPhone 8 Plus. This is not a cheap phone (and oftentimes I wonder why I even got it in the first place!) but I’ve found two ways to decrease my phone bill by $156 a year.


Here’s how I save money on my cell phone bill and how you can save on your cell phone bill, too!


1. See if your current employer offers it’s employees a discount

Believe it or not, many companies have relationships with cell phone providers so that their employees can receive a discount on their cell phone bills. If you’re not sure if you can get a discount through your employer, check out your benefits or ask your HR department.

I personally receive a 20% discount on my cell phone bill each month through my employer which comes out to $8 a month.


That’s a yearly savings of $96. BTW – my cell phone bill isn’t $27.00. This is just a portion of it.

If you’re not sure if you get a discount through your company, it is definitely worth looking in to.

2. Set Up AutoPay / Online Bill Pay

You may be able to receive a discount on your phone bill if you set up auto-pay. Cell phone service providers save money on paper, printing and mailing your bill if you choose to pay your bill online and/or receive your statements via email.


You can see here that I save $5 a month on my cell phone bill by doing this. That’s a yearly savings of $60.

Check with your cell phone provider to see if they offer a similar discount for using auto-pay. There’s nothing to lose!


The Savings Add Up

By doing both of these things, I save $156 a year on my cell phone bill. I highly recommend looking into these two methods of saving if you haven’t already. They are both very simple and can end up saving you a significant amount of money in the long run!
