Cell Phone Plans are expensive, Tracfone is not!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

My best friend got a new cell phone the other day. She loves it! I didn't ask what she paid... I'm sure it wasn't pretty.

That got me thinking about our cell phone that is due to be renewed soon. We pay as much for 2 cell phones (shared minutes, unlimited web, 500 text, free text to same company users) as we do for our Phone, internet, and cable combo!

Tracfone has been on my brain for a while. It costs very little to stay in touch. The Tracfone's T301 has so many features and could be a good fit !

My 8 year old will now be escorting his brother to school (after I get over the initial shock of having 2 kids in Elementary School, and I am considering a low cost phone for for him.

Do you need an inexpensive way to keep in touch with everyone? TracFone is here to help!

TracFone offers the least expensive way to own and use a cell phone in America and is one of the few I have seen  with no contracts, no credit checks, no activation charges or cancellation fees.

Check out some real TracFone customers.

• Tracfone has great nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity. You can also choose from brand name phones Motorola, LG, and Samsung. Choose from simple phones, to Bluetooth®-enabled "Smart" phones.

My concern about a phone for my 8 (almost 9 year old) is the monthly plans. Do I get him one or just pay as we go?

Pay as you go online or with cards with Tracfone is available at thousands of retail stores. I could also purchase a 1 year service cards and receive double minutes for the life of your TracFone, and 800 minutes, for only $119.00

The “Double minutes for the life of your phone” is a feature that can be purchased separately for only$19.99, but some phones include it! Not sure Luke needs that! I can also choose monthly plans with 200 minutes for under $30.00, and as low as $9.99 for 50 minutes. That's more my speed!

Though we will never need it for Luke; the International Long Distance plans are great too!
Tracfone is the only wireless service where you can call internationally, for the same price as any other call. You can ever call over 60 international destinations directly from your TracFone at no extra cost!

The phone selection is great! Simple phones for simple needs, calling and texting capabilities for under $10.00. YES, I said $10.00! I found 3 very easy and basic phones for $9.99 on the Tracfone website plus more under $20.00

They offer phones packed with features like camera/video recorder, web access, app capabilities, mp3 player, and full QWERTY keyboard, for $29.99. Luke doesn't need that, but we may!

  1. Our first cell phones were TracFones. I got one for my son when he started college, then got one for my daughter in law when they married. Their schedules were so hectic that a cell was absolutely necessary. As for the service--excellent. It is every bit as good as the contract family plan that we have now and very easy to add minutes, often with double minute deals.

  2. With a Tracfone family value plan only costing $27.96/month for a family of 4 it's hard to ignore that you are going to save a small fortune changing to this plan compared to being on your current phone contract expenses.
    Tracfone service for only $6.66/month is also too cheap to ignore for your teens.
    If you ever want to know what to get granny and grandpa for Christmas or for their birthday try the Tracfone SVC Samsung T155G for seniors which is the cheapest phone on the market for people who want bigger keys and letters on their screens and the phone is hearing aid friendly.($14.99)
    Whatever Tracfone plan or phone you buy you're going to be saving a lot of money. The coverage is great too.
