I am a bit of a talker – between my job, my blog, my kids and my friends (both offline and on!) I go through a lot of minutes on my cell phone. Though we have a house phone through our cable provider, it’s really just there for emergencies, or for those rare occasions that I get to go out on a date night with my husband and we have a sitter. I honestly don’t even know that number off the top of my head, I have to look it up! Either way I easily hit 1,200 minutes a month and over 3,000 text a month (I told you, I’m a busy lady!) My husband hits even more then that since he is over-the-road, and neither of us can just stop our jobs because we are getting too close to comfort on our limits with a phone plan. We really need the lowest priced unlimited plan!
Which is why we made the switch to the Walmart Family Mobile Plan.
I’ve mentioned before about how much my family loves Walmart Family Mobile. We’ve saved TONS of money by switching the entire family to the WFM plan, with unlimited talk, text and data, not to mention upgraded the kids to hip touch screen phones (God forbid that a 12 year old have a basic phone!) Our love of WFM does not stop there – we’ve converted my Mom as well.
One of the worst things I hated to hear from my Mom was “Well I gotta’ go, I’m really close to running out of minutes”, or “well I can’t text anymore I’m not sure how many text I have left for the month.”
With cell phones being a lot of peoples only means of communication, having to worry about how many texts or minutes you have left until the next month really just stinks. That is why I think that a Walmart Family Mobile phone is a perfect gift for Mother’s Day!
My Mom, much like my children, were stuck with basic phones that pretty much didn’t do anything more then let you talk, or text. You could take pictures, but it was like taking them with a camera in a toy, and you sure can’t do much of anything else like check the weather, get directions, or just scroll through Facebook while you were waiting in the Doctor’s office.
Being able to have a smartphone with great features for a low price just makes sense – It’s less then $40 a month for unlimited talk, text and data on the first line. You can add additional lines on your family plan for only $35 each. (That right there is a $$ saver, since it was an additional $100 to add my second line with my previous carrier) and..wait for it..
(Mom enjoying her new phone! We even got her on Instagram!!)
You pay for your service on a per month basis, and you can cancel your service at any time without fees or penalties. This was definitely something that my Mom found to be quite impressive, since she was scared of making the jump with her prior carrier and being stuck in a contract for years with a phone, or service, that she didn’t like.
I am excited to gift her the phone, and see how she likes it – watch for my follow-up post in the next couple of weeks as she shares her experience switching to Walmart #FamilyMobile!
