Great deal for Tracfone customers
If you’re looking for a great prepaid deal, you may wish to consider an unlikely source: home shopping. Yes, HSN is offering a Tracfone package that gives you an LG 500g cell phone, 1200 minutes, and triple minutes for life.
For 109.95 (or $79.95, the sales price in effect when this article was published), you get 1200 minutes (20 hours) up front, and every refill card you redeem will be tripled for as long as you have the phone. What that means is that when you purchase a 60 minute card, you automatically get three hours instead of one.
The value of the deal that Tracfone offers is obvious: imagine you’re on a tight budget, and can only afford one 60-minute card, but you need more time than that. If you purchase a phone such as the one mentioned in this article, that problem is solved for as long as you own the phone.
Tracfone is perhaps one of the only prepaid companies to regularly offer double or triple minutes, an offer that makes it easy for users of prepaid service to get the most value for their money, something that’s bound to be much appreciated while many recover from the numerous economic problems of the past few years.
Of course, the triple minute arrangement is not exclusive to home shopping channels. You can go to retailers such as Walmart, and purchase phones that offer the same deal. You can get your phone and minutes immediately, and you can save yourself a few dollars on shipping, too. On the other hand, $80 for a phone, over a thousand minutes, and triple minutes for life is nothing to sneeze at, either.
Speaking of refills, Tracfone makes it easy: you can purchase refill cards at major retailers and enter the code right into your phone. You can also purchase time online, using your debit card.
