People who don’t use much data and penny hoarders just caught a break.

Starting Feb. 20, Verizon will roll out a new $30 prepaid smartphone plan featuring unlimited U.S. talk, text and 500MB of data.

You can still check email and stream, albeit lightly. If you find you’re getting close to the limit, you can add data or switch your plan at any time.

The new plan joins Verizon’s current prepaid lineup of 3GB for $40, 7GB for $50 and 10GB for $60. All prepaid plans include carryover data for one month, a new mobile hot spot feature and unlimited texting to over 200 international destinations.

In addition to the new prepaid plan, Verizon added a travel pass option that lets you use talk, text and data on eligible devices for $5 per day. You’re only billed for the days you actually use it.

All of this is with no annual contract or credit check.

The new Verizon prepaid plan seems like a great choice if you’re a minimal data users or you’re on a budget, although 2.5GB for $10 more isn’t a bad deal, either. At least you have options.

And if you’re wondering: No, this is not an ad — it’s just a really good deal!
