Get The Cheapest Wireless Plans With Walmart Family Mobile

Many people will consider using that refund check to purchase a new cell phone phone and plan. Most of us want a really nice phone but we don’t all rake in a big tax check. I have a solution for you that I have been using myself for quite some time. It’s called the Walmart Family Mobile Plan. With many of the coolest smart phones under $100 and no contract, they really do have the best priced phones and the cheapest wireless plans.

Just The Facts, Please

The Walmart Family Mobile Plan is powered by T-Mobile, one of the best wireless carriers in the country with an outstanding coverage area. There’s no contract to sign, just pay as you go. For as little as $39.88 a month {plus tax} you can get unlimited talk, text and web, plus you can add additional lines to your plan for as little as $35 a month. Or you can get unlimited talk and text for $29.88. Doesn’t that sound great? You can get the smart phone you want from Walmart, then just purchase the starter kit for your Walmart Family Mobile Plan, and you are set. And you can use what you saved out of your tax refund check to take your family out to a nice dinner and maybe even a movie!

Real Experiences. Real People.

I know you’re wondering just how good the Walmart Family Mobile plan is. Well, I have been on the Walmart Family Mobile Plan for almost a year now, and I have to tell you that I absolutely love it. I haven’t had any problems with coverage and absolutely no dropped calls. Not even one. And, perhaps most importantly to me, my bill has been the same every month: $45. I have watched sports videos, played a plethora of games, looked up endless amounts of information while using my data and I have not once gone over any data limits (being honest here, it says unlimited data, but that is up to 2.5 gigabytes really) and I have never had a problem paying my bill. It is, in a word, wonderful.

Compared to our other carrier, which Dawn is under contract with, it averages out to be nearly $75 a month cheaper if we all switched to the Walmart Family Mobile Plan. Plus, if we wanted, we could take our phones from the other carrier with us. That just gives you an idea of how much money you can save with the Walmart Family Mobile Plan. In our experience, it really is one of the cheapest wireless plans around. I can’t think of any other carrier that can beat the price.

  1. I have an AT&T Go Phone (a Nokia Lumia 520), and I have to say prepaid is THE way to go! You’re so right about how much cheaper it is! You still get cool phone, great coverage, and all the perks of a contract, with no contract! Smart shoppers go prepaid!

  2. We spent our tax refund already. We don’t waste any time LOL. We are going to San Diego in April and that was our whole refund ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I am not sure what we will do with our tax refund. Probably stick it in the bank and save it for awhile.

  4. Those friends and family plans seem to save everyone a lot of money. Now if only we could get some friends together and go in on it!

  5. Amy Desrosiers says

    I would love to put some tax money aside for a phone plan! I do not even have a wireless phone!

  6. Nice ideas for your tax refund! I think we’re going to save it this year!

  7. Our federal refund is going to be about $46, compared to the $3k we’ve received in the past. Fairly certain we won’t be taking a weekend trip on that little amount. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. We got new phones with our tax refund too! We have T-Mobile and with their new plans I was able to save some money and get new phones with 0 down and a small monthly fee. We also got new furniture!

  10. That is so reasonable for a wireless bill. Ours is ridiculous.

  11. Thanks to my blogging income, we don’t get a refund this year. I was hoping we would, with adding another family member. This wireless plan still looks good though, refund or not!

  12. I’m such a saver so if I were to get a refund, that’s where it would — in savings. However, I will have to pay. I always do! Love the no contract aspect of this plan!

  15. our tax money usually goes towards a bill or big expense. this year we have a big vacation coming up .

  18. Oh geez, I meant to do our taxes last week and didn’t because hubby was home on vacation and he distracts me. Then I forgot about it… until now. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I’ve heard lots of good things about that Walmart plan!

  19. Alas, our tax refund is not much because i paid taxes late. But better not to owe!

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      That is a very good point. I have never had to pay in, but it might happen one day. I will appreciate not having to until then.

  20. we’re actually getting a “new to us” car once our return comes back. With baby #3 on the way we need something bigger than a sedan. I can’t wait!

  21. We love tax season as it gives a chance to get ahead on bills and keep major purchases off our credit card! This year it went to paying down debt faster.

  22. we’re actually getting a new to us car once our return comes in. Since we’re expecting baby #3 we can’t stay in a sedan.
