Visible offers great deals for Black Friday when switching from your current carrier to its wireless service plan. Sign up for its unlimited data plan by purchasing a qualifying device (or bring your own) and get up to a $ 200 gift card and a free pair of Beats or AirPods Pro headphones as part of the deal. You will have to port your number and other terms apply, but this is one of the better deals we have seen to change operator. (T-Mobile has a similar deal with a “free” iPhone, but you have to sign up for the operator’s expensive Magenta Max plan.)

Here’s how it works: First, make sure you go for a phone that qualifies, such as iPhone 13 Pro Max. You can buy a new one or bring your own. Then download the Visible app. From there, transfer your number from your current mobile carrier and set up an eSIM. Then activate your account. Make sure your provider qualifies – even if big names like Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint are all included, as well as many more.

You will need to maintain your account for at least 90 days, but this is a pretty big reward for switching to an unlimited plan. The fixed fee plans range from $ 25 to $ 40 per month (depending on how many are in your party), and if you buy a phone, it will be an additional monthly fee. Still, we’ve had good experience with Visible (it uses the Verizon network). It’s still cheaper than many other plans out there, so it may be worth switching.
