Finding deals on cell phone plans for couples can be challenging. Most plan deals and discounts are targeted for family plans with three lines or four lines. Two-line plans are typically left without any significant discounts at all.
Often for couples, it's better for each person to get their own plan. Getting single-line plans to meet each person's specific needs is often more affordable than trying to find a plan with a two-line discount.
Our top picks for the best cell phone plans for couples come from Red Pocket, US Mobile, Pure TalkUSA, Tello, Visible, and Mint Mobile:
Tello offers the most affordable plans on the Sprint network. Their $19 4GB plan is a great value for couples because it delivers plenty of data and includes unlimited minutes and texts.
Tello also lets you customize your plan. You can choose the number of minutes and megabytes of data you want. Each person can build a plan to meet their specific needs.
Tello now lets you manage multiple lines under one account. This helps make billing easier and is perfect for couples.
We selected Red Pocket as the best coverage plan because their plan is available on all major networks. You can choose to get Red Pocket's $19 3GB plan on either the Verizon network, AT&T network, or the Sprint network. Sprint is merging with T-Mobile, so it is likely this plan will soon become available on the T-Mobile network too.
Red Pocket not only offers great value but also great coverage. Red Pocket also allows you to bring your own device to their network. If you are a current Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint customer, your current phone will work with Red Pocket.
Multi-month plans are becoming more popular. They allow cell phone carriers to offer excellent prices and value. Mint Mobile's plan is no exception.
Mint Mobile's plans remain some of the best value plans available. Each line will need its own Mint Mobile account. Hopefully Mint Mobile adds support for multi-line accounts soon.
US Moblie offers custom plans at affordable rates. You choose how many minutes, texts, and megabytes of data you want each month. One of our favorite options is their $30 plan with unlimited minutes, unlimited texts, and 5GB of LTE data.
All of US Mobile's custom plans support the mobile hotspot, and you'll also get support for features such as visual voicemail, VoLTE, and MMS. Custom plans also include 250MB of international roaming data, so you can use your plan while traveling abroad.
US Mobile uses either the Verizon or T-Mobile networks for coverage. We recommend you sign up for the Verizon network, which US Mobile refers to as their Super LTE network, for the best coverage.
Pure TalkUSA is one of the few carriers that offers a discount for couples. You save 10% off your total bill with two lines.
Pure TalkUSA supports visual voicemail, Wi-Fi calling, VoLTE, and personal hotspot.
Visible is especially great for couples because of their Party Pay group discount. With a party of four lines, Visible discounts their plan down to just $25 per month. Couples can join a party together and invite two other lines to fill their party for four lines in total. Each bill is handled separately, so this is safe to do, and it's a great way to get an awesome discount.
Visible uses Verizon's network for coverage. All taxes and fees are included, and $25 for unlimited data is a superb deal. Check out our Visible review for more information.
