Review & advise
Our goal is to offer high-quality reviews and share advice with you, the consumer. We're always searching for the best value, the fine line where quality meets affordability. Our journalistic integrity is important to us so we will never compromise when writing trustworthy and well-researched articles. We ensure that every source we cite is credible and reputable.
As a business, MoneySavingPro is sustained by our affiliates. A commission may be earned if a visitor uses an affiliate link and ultimately makes a purchase. Our site's editorial and writing staff remain autonomous and independent of influence from any commercial teams with which we interact. We do not allow third parties to pay for promotional content in our writing. If a review promotes a product or service it is because we truly believe it has the quality that deserves your consideration.
Trustworthy ranking system
Our team reviews the providers we've deemed the best value in the industry. This means whether that provider ranks first or third, they're a good choice and should be considered. Our ranking system takes affordability and quality into consideration. Rankings are based on a number of factors that add up to represent the provider's overall value. The provider we find to be best overall gets our Best Value Seal and is ranked number one.

Prices & Rates
When reviewing a company, we look at the prices and how they compare with industry standards and with other top competitors.
Services & Features
Do the providers that have features designed with the customer in mind? Some companies strive to innovate within their industries, offering new programs and features that serve to make them an attractive option.
We like to see live chats, 24/7 availability, and multiple avenues to get in touch via phone and email. BBB ratings, ACSI rankings, and Trustpilot scores also help indicate that a company deals with complaints from its customers.
Catches & Requirements
Sometimes these can seriously detract from the provider's overall value but they may also be commonplace in the industry. As an example, sometimes online lenders advertise low-interest rates that you can only get if you set up a direct deposit.
What is MoneySavingPro?
MoneySavingPro is the free, easy way to compare the best value cell phone plans.
Our tools and tips make it simple to know your options, find recommendations handpicked by experts, and save up to $600 a year on each line.
By empowering every cell phone user to cut through the confusion and find a better deal, we're working hard to drive up standards in US telecoms.
MoneySavingPro helps you save money in other ways, too. Our site makes it easy to find the best smartphone deals. And we help you compare TV, internet, and landline services in your area, so you can choose the service that suits you best.
How is MoneySavingPro free to use?
MoneySavingPro will always be entirely free to use. Why? Because we want to help as many people as possible to make informed decisions and save money. It's what we're passionate about.
Instead of charging customers to use our service or covering our site with spammy banner ads, we earn a commission from the carriers we recommend. When you click on a plan in one of our comparison tables, the carrier pays us a small fee. This cost is never passed on to you, so you don't pay any extra for a plan you find through MoneySavingPro.
This bit's important. We only ever recommend vetted carriers that reach our extremely high standards. They're handpicked by our experts to give you the best value for money, choice, and customer experience. So you can trust that everything you see on our site is driven by what's best for you.
Why don't you have show plans from the big networks?
Nicely spotted! You won't find plans direct from the big networks - AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon - on MoneySavingPro. Why not? Because they aren't good enough value for money for customers.
We're focused on saving you the most money we possibly can. So we only show you the best value plans. These come from a new generation of low-cost carriers, known as MVNOs ('Mobile Virtual Network Operators'). A plan from one of these carriers saves the average cell phone user as much as $600 a year on each line.
And because we don't have plans direct from the big guys on our site, we're not beholden to them. It's important to us to be free to call out problems in the telecoms industry. To speak up directly and impartially, giving you the information you need to make decisions that work for you. We're focused on taking care of consumers, not vested interests.
How do you decide what plans to recommend?
We're very selective about the plans that we recommend on MoneySavingPro. They have to be the best value for money, give you lots of choice and flexibility, and have a great customer experience.
That's why, instead of showing you plans directly from AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon, we've handpicked a selection of the best alternative carriers. They're known as MVNOs, aka 'Mobile Virtual Network Operators' - a new generation of low-cost carriers, powered by the big networks you know and trust.
They've ditched expensive stores and pushy salespeople. Instead, they operate mostly online. This keeps overheads low, so they can pass on the savings to you. They're making it seamless to switch, easy to customize your plan to suit you, and they don't lock you in.
We currently work with a select group of around 15 carefully-vetted MVNOs. We're always reviewing these to make sure that you're seeing the best, most up-to-date range of high quality, low cost carriers.
How is MoneySavingPro different?
Unlike most review sites, we make sure that the information you see on MoneySavingPro is clear, trustworthy, and organized in a way that works for you.
Most review sites show you long, static lists of recommendations. They attach star ratings that they've normally decided on themselves, based on their priorities. Often, carriers pay for a top star rating.
That's not how we work at MoneySavingPro. Instead of endless options, we show you a manageable selection, carefully curated by experts. Instead of static lists, we encourage you to filter based on what's important to you. And instead of star ratings decided by us, all the star ratings on our site all come from real user reviews.
Do I need to shop around to find the best deal?
We know how overwhelming it can be to choose a new phone plan, so we've gathered all the information you need, in one handy place. Our aim is for MoneySavingPro to be the only site you need to find a better deal.
We work with a varied range of vetted carriers, to give you lots of choice. And we've made it easy for you to filter your search based on what matters most to you.
Our impartial guides help you understand what to look out for when you're switching, so you're armed with the facts you need to make the right choice for you.
Is all the information on MoneySavingPro accurate?
MoneySavingPro is free to use, always. We do our absolute best to keep the information on our site up to date.
To be extra safe, when you click through on one of our plans and go to the carrier's website, it's always a good idea to double check that the price you see there matches up with what you saw on MoneySavingPro.
If you do spot anything that doesn't look right, please let us know and we'll update it, pronto.
What's the difference between MoneySavingPro and a service provider?
MoneySavingPro is focused on helping you find the best services, whether its a low cost cell phone plan or better internet.
Our job is to track down the best options, making it easy to compare them and find the one that's right for you.
We do direct you to the right providers for the best deals.
We don't directly provide cell phone plans, TV, internet or landline services.
So if you run into any issues or have questions about a plan or service, your best bet is to contact your provider directly to get it sorted.
Find the right number for your service provider quickly and easily in our handy directory.
Most low-cost cell phone carriers offer excellent customer support online, too.
