We’ve all been there.

Your phone screen is so cracked that shards of glass get lodged into your thumb. You tote a phone charger with you 24/7 because your battery lasts no more than a few hours. You can’t actually make a phone call because the sound has just, well, disappeared.

But you don’t want to fork over hundreds — even thousands — of dollars for a new phone, so you just settle.

Not anymore. From Feb. 18 to April 2, The Penny Hoarder readers can get a new Android phone from Boost Mobile starting at $79.99. Total.

The discount wireless carrier that operates on the Sprint network has its most popular Android devices on sale.

Replace Your Old Phone With a New Android Starting at $79.99

We love saving money, especially when it comes to buying a new phone.

Right now, through Boost, you can save $60 on the Samsung Galaxy A10e, making your grand total $79.99.

Or you can save $70 on the Samsung Galaxy A20, which will cost you $159.99.

That’s no where close to the price of a pricy new iPhone. Plus, use the code PENNYFREESHIP, and you’ll get free expedited shipping (from Feb. 18 to May 29).

Here’s a recap of what you need to know about this Boost Mobile deal:

  • It runs from Feb. 18 to April 2.
  • You can save $60 on the Samsung Galaxy A10e or $70 on the Samsung Galaxy A20.
  • Use code PENNYFREESHIP to get free expedited shipping from Feb. 18 to May 29.
  • This deal is online only, so you won’t find it in stores.

Oh, and Go Ahead and Pick up a Family Plan For $25/Line

Getting a new phone through Boost Mobile doesn’t require you sign up with one of its phone plans, but, honestly, it’s a smart move.

It offers a family bundle (four lines) for $100 a month. That’s just $25 a line — three times cheaper than the average. (For reference, the average monthly cell phone bill these days is about $80 for a single line.)

And it includes unlimited everything: unlimited data, minutes and texting.

So are you ready to finally stop getting glass stuck in your thumb and save a ton of money on your cell phone bill? Pick out your new Android, and use code PENNYFREESHIP to save even more.
