Finding a wireless plan that’s right for you can be a challenge – with different networks, competing benefits, and confusing offers, it’s hard to know if you’re getting the best deal.
But something we do know: T-Mobile is the only wireless provider that offers discounts to seniors living anywhere in the country.
A recent Carrier Callout from T-Mobile highlighted that unless residing in Florida, no AT&T or Verizon customer is elible for a senior discount. These wireless providers overlook 92% of seniors around the country, automatically disqualifying them from a discount they deserve simply because they don’t live in the Sunshine State.
To arm seniors with the resources they need to address the problem, T-Mobile launched a fun new website, BannedSeniors.com. Seniors everywhere can learn how to navigate the loopholes to qualify for wireless discounts only available in the Sunshine State, or get information about T-Mobile’s Unlimited 55+ plans with discounts available for 100% of the country’s senior population.
In addition to the website, the Un-carrier opened a pop up Wireless Discount Information Center at the Arrowhead Towne Center mall, located outside Sun City, Arizona – one of the largest retirement communities in the country. In order to provide resources to the 1.5 million seniors residing in the Grand Canyon State, T-Mobile deployed a mobile billboard and the pop up center open Sunday, August 28 through Tuesday, August 30.
How to get a senior wireless discount
BannedSeniors.com details two ways for age-eligible AT&T and Verizon customers to get a senior discount from one of the three nationwide wireless providers: have a Florida address or switch to a T Mobile Unlimited 55+ plan.
If you’re currently a T-Mobile customer, you’ve already been taking advantage of the only nationally discounted wireless network. But for AT&T and Version customers residing outside of Florida, BannedSeniors.com can help you:
- Get a virtual mailbox – A virtual mailbox is a relatively easy way to get a Florida address. BannedSeniors.com walks users through the process to get a real, physical, discount qualifying Florida address. One caveat: AT&T makes its customers physically go to a store in Florida to verify eligibility.
- Buy Florida real estate – T-Mobile enlisted the help of legendary Florida real estate agent, Bobby Auerbach, to help Verizon and AT&T customers move to the one and only state they can get a wireless discount without switching providers.
- Switch to T-Mobile – T-Mobile has 55+ plans available no matter what state you live in. The basic unlimited plan for people 55 years or older – Essentials 55+ – saves people 50% compared to AT&T and Verizon. T-Mobile also has other discounted 55+ plans that include Netflix On Us plus AAA free for a year. Combined with the largest, fastest and most reliable nationwide 5G network, T-Mobile provides incredible value to anyone 55 or older.
T-Mobile Unlimited 55+ Plans
By switching to a T-Mobile 55+ plan, seniors can take advantage of major savings while enjoying 5G access plus other great benefits and discount.
- Save 50% with an Unlimited Essentials 55+ plan
- Get two unlimited lines on Essentials 55+ plan for $27.50/line with 5G access include.
- With Price Lock, the price of your rate plan will always stay the same.
The Un-carrier’s Extended Range 5G covers nearly everyone in the country – 315 million people across 1.8 million square miles. 225 million people nationwide are covered with super-fast Ultra Capacity 5G, and T-Mobile expects to cover 260 million in 2022 and 300 million next year. Not to mention qualifying plans get free high-speed data abroad in 210+ locations and free in-flight connectivity, Netflix on Us, a free year of Paramount+, discounts on YouTubeTV and Philo for a year, free stuff every Tuesday with T Mobile Tuesday, and more.
This isn’t T-Mobile’s first Carrier Callout, and the Un-carrier shows no signs of slowing down to help unleash wireless discounts for all senior, not just those who reside in Florida. Seniors deserve better, so T-Mobile will continue to fight on behalf of all wireless customers, calling out The Carrier’s poor customer treatment and challenging them to step up for seniors until change happens.
