It’s that time of year, the most wonderful time. No I’m not talking about Christmas, and while I adore Christmas time, I adore tax time even more. No, not because I like doing taxes, because who does? But that magical tax refund check that comes each year? Now I like that!
I’m naturally pretty frugal, so I prefer saving over spending and if I am going to spend, I want to stretch that almighty dollar to lengths it might not otherwise know. You know, get the most bang for my buck type thing. I shop deals, sales and will wait to buy something until I find it the absolutely lowest I can.
I have five teenagers and one thing that is extremely hard to save money on, is cell phones and cell phone plans. We are a large family of 7 and all of us have our smartphones and use them regularly. You can’t even imagine what our cell phone bill once looked like. And don’t even get me started on the phones themselves. This year, my oldest son was in desperate need of a new cell phone. He’s been using the same one for years, since he first got his smart phone. The thing is a mess and it was definitely time to replace it. However, I was not interested in buying him a phone that cost an astronomical amount; yet I wanted something that would be sturdy, long lasting and good for him.
As is typical, we were at Walmart one day grabbing some new headphones for kid #2, when we happened to pay attention to the Walmart Family Mobile service. Did you know it has the lowest priced unlimited plans? It’s just $29.88 a month for the first line. Forget the phone, I found our new plan! Of course, he also chose the ZTE ZMAX Phablet, which is perfect for him. It’s the perfect smartphone. He even let mama play which I’ll tell you about below.
The $29.88 a month plan includes unlimited talk, text/data service which includes up to 500MB of 4G LTE data What a deal! This is perfect for him and it definitely lets me maximize my tax refund!
Walmart Family Mobile makes it easy and cost effective to outfit the whole family in cell phones and a good plan.
And if you don’t want to spend a lot on an actual phone, there are plenty of other options. In fact, my youngest daughter was able to pick up the ZTE Zinger for only $19.84 which used to be $39.88. She saw a deal and went right for it. She’s thrilled with her new phone and we didn’t pay a lot. Setting up the phone was super easy and we got it all set up in store, however it’s just as easy to do it at home. Just make sure you pick up the starter kit too.
I wanted to check out my son’s new phone and play, so he allowed me to use it before he did. Nice!
I was able to check Instagram, set an appointment, and check out some inspiration via pinterest. I love how large the screen is, everything was so sharp and clear and I can see why he loves his phone so much.
With the Walmart Family Mobile plan, I feel like we definitely maximized our tax this year. All members of our household have great phones and we save a lot of money over our previous family plan with all the same benefits!
