I jumped the gun and I went and I canceled my other phones and got a Tracfone.
I SO wish I would have done this years ago. I am just not a big phone talker, the most I do is a few calls here and there and then I text often, but just with a few people. My girls hardly use a phone as well.
I went and got a phone with triple the minutes on it for the life of the phone. So every time I either buy a card to add minutes or use the website, it triples the number I buy. So 30 minutes becomes 90 minutes.
And a text costs 1/3 of a minute to send.
The phone cost me $60 up front and came with 20 minutes. So far, in TWO MONTHS, I have only had to add minutes twice. The first time I spent $19.99 and got 180 minutes which lasted me three weeks. And now, with a special they offered, I got 390 minutes for $29.99. That should last me at least another month and a half!
The girls started with their free 20 minutes and still have 12 left! I imagine I’ll get them another 60 or so in a week or so.
My past phone bill was $160 a MONTH!!!!!!! This is such a huge savings for me and it’s such a relief as well, not having that huge bill and knowing that I control my own budget with the darn thing. And so far, I haven’t felt restricted or anything on it. I’ve chatted some but mostly just my normal quick calls and then texting. It’s been perfect.
I highly recommend this as a great option for folks that might want a cell but not the huge bill. Or if you have a huge bill with contract phones and want another option. Make sure you get a phone that has either double or triple the minutes added. That really makes it cheap. I found that out by surfing around a bit before I made my jump.
I’m not a paid sponsor or anything, I just adore this way to be connected, yet in control and saving cash all the way! Two months would have cost me $320 with the old phones… this way? $110 (and that included buying the phone!) $200 bucks saved is a huge thing for us! And here after, it will be even cheaper, since the phones are paid for.
Pretty darn cool!!!Pin It
