Plus, you’ll get unlimited messaging too!
Here’s more about this new perk.
Free Wi-Fi During Your Flights!
Link: Switch to T-Mobile
That’s a good deal, because most large US airlines use Gogo for their in-flight internet!
Usually, 1 hour costs ~$5 and a day pass is ~$16. So you’ll save money with this new perk.
Not only that, folks with T-Mobile service will get unlimited messaging on flights through text, iMessage, Google Hangouts, WhatsApp, and Viber.
So you’ll be able to stay in-touch with friends and family during your entire flight! 🙂
Don’t forget, certain T-Mobile plans also allow free calls and text messages from Mexico and Canada. So if you travel a lot to these destinations, T-Mobile is a good cellular provider to consider.
Cards That Give You Free In-Flight Internet
For folks without T-Mobile, there are a few credit cards that offer perks like credits towards the purchase of in-flight Wi-Fi or in-flight internet vouchers.
With the Discover it Miles card, you’ll get up to $30 per cardmember year for in-flight Wi-Fi purchases.
The Business Platinum Card from American Express OPEN comes with free Boingo internet at places like airports, malls, and attractions. And 10 Gogo in-flight internet passes each year.
