It’s that time of year again—but for kids going to college, back-to-school may mean a lot more than just stocking up on school supplies and new threads. It’s also about leaving the nest, and all the new responsibilities and homesickness that come along with it. In fact, about 69 percent of college kids report being homesick, according to the UCLA Higher Education Institute.

Striking out on their own with confidence is a lot easier knowing that friends and family are just a call or a text away. And if you consider all the Snapchatting, Tik Tok-ing, and Instagramming that’s going on, a cell phone plan with unlimited data is the best way to avoid unexpected overage fees.

Unlimited plans can cost an arm and a leg, though, and with all that tuition you just plunked down, it’s a smart idea to cut corners any way you can. But you don’t have to sacrifice quality. There happens to be a top-notch plan that offers not only unlimited data but unlimited talk and text*, too. It’s Yahoo Mobile—and it’s only $39.99 a month for all that bandwidth on Verizon’s 4G LTE network.

Right now, you can take advantage of a special offer.

Yahoo Mobile is actually paying you to subscribe—up to $200!

Yahoo Mobile is putting money in your pocket. When you sign-up for Yahoo Mobile, bring your own device and transfer your existing number, you’ll receive a $100 Prepaid Mastercard® Virtual Account to spend at any of your favorite online stores.

But if you choose to snap up a new, eligible phone and port over your existing number to your new Yahoo Mobile account, that prepaid Mastercard® Virtual Account gift card jumps to up to $200! You’d be hard-pressed to find a better back-to-school deal, even if you pulled an all-nighter.

To receive either of these offers, you’ll need to port in your current phone number from another carrier. You’ll receive a code to redeem your gift card after two service payments. These and other terms apply for both of these offers, which you can find more info by following the links below. Be sure to check them out before signing up.

Yahoo Mobile scores A+ across the board when it comes to cost and quality

With Yahoo Mobile, kids and parents can rest easy knowing they’re paying for the best service possible. It runs on Verizon’s award-winning 4G LTE network, which happens to be the largest and most reliable 4G LTE network in the whole country. For those taking notes, about 98 percent of Americans are already covered by this powerhouse network. You get all that bandwidth and more with Yahoo Mobile’s unlimited data, text and talk* for $39.99 a month. Suffice to say it’s customer-approved.

New customers get a few bonuses, too. For starters, you get a hotspot with a speed up to 5 Mbps (limited to one tethered device at a time). And the account owner gets an ad-free Yahoo email address and 24/7 digital account support — which should take some of the problem-solving burden off parents with those impossible tech questions.

Yahoo Mobile puts students in good hands with a constant, high-quality connection at all times. That means they can free up their mental and emotional energy for more important things like studying, making friends, and learning how to cook something beyond instant ramen noodles. And parents can have less grey hairs knowing their children are safe and their cell phone bill won’t break the bank.
