Target Offers Its Own Prepaid Mobile Plans Starting At $35 Per Month
Retail giant Target confirmed Thursday that it will launch Brightspot, it’s own prepaid mobile service.
The service will use T-Mobile networks and will give customers unlimited talk and texting for $35 per month, with plans that include unlimited data for $50 per month. The unlimited plan will be similar to T-Mobile’s own service, which caps high-speed data use at 1GB per month.
Better yet? After six months of paid service, Target will give you a $25 Target gift card for your loyalty.
“Target guests have been asking us for new mobile plan options to meet their changing needs, and Brightspot combines the flexibility of a pre-paid program with 4G data on one of the nation’s premier networks,” said vice-president of electronics John Butcher in a statement.
The Target blog notes that you’ll be able to choose from a variety of both feature and smartphones, or even bring your own compatible device. That should mean that both Android and iPhone devices that can run on T-Mobile should work with Target’s new plan, but there aren’t any specifics on the post as yet.
If customers have a Target credit card, called the Red Card, they’ll save five percent off their monthly bill, as well.
Looks like Walmart’s prepaid service just got some competition.
