On May 1st of this year, T-Mobile closed on its acquisition of Mint Mobile. It appears that the nation's second-largest wireless provider likes to close its deals at the start of a new month. After all, the $26 billion purchase of Sprint closed on April 1st, 2020. T-Mobile is now looking to obtain regulatory approval for its proposed $4.4 billion purchase of US Cellular so we could see another first-of-the-month closing in T-Mobile's future.

Speaking of Mint Mobile, the MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) has an interesting deal on the Pixel 8, Instead of shelling out $699 for the 128GB variant of the phone, you can save $180 or 26% and pay $519 for the device. And there's more. Buy the Pixel 8 on sale along with six months of wireless service and you'll get an additional six months of wireless service for free. You also have to port your phone number over to Mint. We should point out that Mint says this deal is available for a limited time only. There also is a limit of two Pixel 8 units per order.
