Helium Mobile subscribers can now pay for service using MOBILE rewards earned from Discovery Mapping.
Helium Mobile subscribers enjoy many benefits, including Dynamic Coverage, next-level privacy, and the opportunity to earn rewards right from your phone for helping to build the Helium Mobile Network. Starting today, you can use those rewards to lower your next phone bill to zero. Yes, $0.
Helium Mobile subscribers have the opportunity to earn MOBILE rewards by helping to build the Helium Mobile Network through the Discovery Mapping feature. You simply opt in to Discovery Mapping from the Helium Mobile App and can earn MOBILE rewards for your efforts just by going about your normal routine. This might not feel like much work, but this effort has an immense impact on building the Helium Mobile Network. You can keep the rewards, transfer them to another wallet that supports MOBILE rewards, and now you can apply these rewards to pay for your plan using the Helium Mobile app.
How it works
Similar to credit card points or a loyalty program at your local cafe or department store, you can use MOBILE rewards to pay for up to three months at a time of Helium Mobile service including taxes and fees. The Helium Mobile app displays how many months of your plan you can pay for with your current MOBILE rewards balance. After your prepaid period ends, your account will automatically switch back to the credit card on file.
Another step towards the future of mobile
While an increasing number of companies are seeing the value of accepting crypto as payment, Helium Mobile is the first that gives you the opportunity to both earn rewards for your efforts in building and improving the network and use those rewards to pay for phone service.
All of this is done in a way that is made simple for the subscriber. Paying with MOBILE enables you to benefit from the direct impact you’re having on the network.
We’ve been transparent that expanding people-built coverage is essential for us to sustain and grow our revolutionary $5/month Unlimited Plan price. That’s why participants in Discovery Mapping are rewarded for their efforts to help identify places where people-built coverage will have the most impact. Through your work we will be able to achieve our goal of a more affordable, connected future.
To start helping build the network and earn MOBILE to cover your next phone bill, subscribe to Helium Mobile today.
