Ting will buy you a cup of coffee just for stopping by and seeing if your AT&T device can work with its service
Ting began offering service for GSM customers. The MVNO offers a unique usage-based rate structure, which can save customers serious money.

The a-la carte shopping of features, like low minutes, a bunch of text messages, and a couple gigs of data can be less than $50 per month. If things are running really lean, you could drive the bill down to under $10. You can also go data only, 2GB for $35.

Now, if you are an active AT&T customer, Ting will give you a $5 Startbucks gift card just for seeing if your device will work on Ting. Of course, the carrier is going to show off how much money it might save you over its rival’s service.

Ting believes that if people realize they can move their device off AT&T, they will. “If you can bring your phone to Ting, the calculation gets very simple. You are going to have a better customer experience and you are likely going to spend less,” according to Ting VP of Sales and Marketing, Michael Goldstein, “But sometimes people need a more immediate incentive to take that first step. Until a better incentive comes along, we’re going to stick with coffee.”

The fine print is simple, you get one $5 Starbucks gift card, per email address, per active AT&T device you check via the source link below. If you are not a power-consumer of data, Ting’s rates may prove to be irresistible, just like coffee.
