If you’ve ever made calls or used data across international borders without checking on your service plan specifics first, that’s likely a mistake you won’t make again. It’s called international roaming — and when your U.S. SIM card connects with a mobile network in a foreign nation, you usually start accruing new charges. Those fees typically start at just a couple bucks, but they can go through the roof quickly if you aren’t careful.

Flexiroam is a simple workaround to avoid international roaming — and right now, you can simplify traveling abroad with one 2GB Flexiroam chip for just $42 with promo code MERRY15. That’s a $27 savings off the regular price.

Flexiroam sticks easily to your smartphone’s SIM card. With it, you can avoid all the mystery and hidden charges that make international roaming such a killer. No matter where you are in more than 140 countries, you can use up to 2GB of data at up to 4G speeds with no fear.

Meanwhile, the Flexiroam app lets you manage your use, see your current coverage, add additional minutes and more, all in a few finger taps.

This chip is the perfect end-run around getting local SIM cards or even buying regional burner phones to avoid those roaming fees. It’s also a heck of a lot more convenient.

The Flexiroam chip usually costs $69. But for a limited time, you can take $20 off that price and get your travel talk lined up for only $42 with promo code MERRY15.
