How-To Get Virgin Mobile ‘Off-contract’ iPhone 5C For $299.99

iPhone 5C has created a huge buzz among general people due to its low price. Most of the carriers are selling it ‘on-contract’ along with a price of $550 or more and a monthly fee of $70+. But Virgin Mobile is offering the handset for $299.99 and a monthly fee of $30 without contract.

Virgin Mobile is offering 16 GB iPhone 5C for $299.99 without contract. You will have to pay $30 per month in order to get nearly unlimited service. However, to get the iPhone 5C without any contract, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Click here to “Sign up” for Virgin Mobile. Although it’s a referral link, it will lead you earning a $25 account credit. Just make sure, while you are providing your email, it should be the same email address that you’ll use a few steps later while placing your order.

Step 2: Click here to “Sign up” for a TopCashback account. This cashback service is currently offering a $35 rebate on all iPhone purchased from Virgin Mobile. So after you’ve got your account set up, just go to TopCashback’s Virgin Mobile page. Now, click the orange colored Get Cashback Now button. This will transport you to Virgin’s site. Now enter your email and password to login.

Step 3: Now move your mouse over the Shop menu. A drop-down list will appear. Now click iPhone from that drop-down list. A new list will appear and you will find iPhone 5C in that list. However, now choose one of the five available colors (using the little selector to the left of the iPhone photo), then click Add to Cart. Here you have to pay $359.99 up front including shipping cost.

Step 4: The purchase will get logged automatically by TopCashback, and you will be able to claim that $35 rebate (via check or PayPal) in 90 days.

Step 5: After you receive your iPhone 5C and activate it with Virgin Mobile, head back to, sign in, then provide your mobile number. It is supposed to take about four weeks to get your $25 account credit. But don’t forget to complete this step, otherwise you won’t get that credit!

Note that, Virgin’s service plans start at $35 per month (which includes unlimited texting and data and 300 voice minutes), but you can drop that hassle to pay $30 monthly manually by just by signing up for autopay. That’s really a easy solution.
