So many people dislike tax season, but I think that any amount of work is worth getting your own money back! It is fun deciding how to #MaxYourTax return money. This year it was easy to decide what to spend my money on. I have been in desperate need of a new cell phone! Ever since the cell towers in my are were upgraded, my old phone does not get good service. I am paying way too much every month to not be able to keep in touch with my family and take crummy pictures. I knew that I needed to switch to the Lowest Price Unlimited Plans for cell phone service.
This past Christmas I bought my tween son a Samsung Galaxy Exhibit phone from Walmart #FamilyMobile because they had the Cheapest Wireless Plans. Well, 3 months later my 11 year old has a better phone than I do AND I am paying less than half for his Unlimited Talk Text and Date/Web than I am for mine!! So yes, it was a no-brainer that I would get myself one too.
This year I didn’t get back what I had hoped so I am on a budget as usual but this is no big deal since Walmart has a fab variety of smart phones for less that $100 bucks! This is a huge savings from the prices I have seen in a lot of other stores.
I got the phone for so cheap that I still had money left over for accessories!
My little guy helped me find an sd card for memory to store all my new pics and new music. We got protective, matching cases (in different colors of course) with kickstands. It was so fun!
Then I had to get a hands free device for the car because Chicago has a new law that you can not use cell phones while driving. The one I wanted was out of stock but no big deal because I also use walmart.com from my computer and phone. I checked out with my goodies and went home to open my new TOY!! uh…I mean cell phone. I was happily surprised again to find out that since I already had a line with Walmart Family Mobile, I get a $5 discount every month for my newly added line.
As soon as I got home I jumped on the computer and within 5 minutes I had ordered my hands free speaker at walmart.com. I got a highly recommended speaker that clips to my visor and allows me to use the phone without touching it as it syncs wirelessly with bluetooth. And it was only $61.
Another AMAZING money saver from Walmart. . . they give everyone FREE Shipping from site to store. So two days later I got an e-mail saying that my package was ready to pick up and all I had to do was run inside, show my ordering info and I was done!
I was so excited to get my phone. I was even more excited because my son could teach me how to use it! Right now while he is young, my son and I are each others biggest fans so anything I can do to make memories and stay close to him I will do without hesitation. He was really proud to know that I was getting a phone like his and that he could show me “what’s up”.
I am excited that I got to treat myself using my tax return. Now I don’t drop important calls and I can take amazing pics to post on social media. I can’t believe what technology allows us to do for our families, and for so cheap! I got all of this at Walmart and spent less than $200!! Can you believe it? You CAN afford to have a cool phone at a low price with Walmart Family Mobile Plans.

My sister uses this plan and really likes it. I am all about saving money where I can!
We are seriously considering getting one of these phones for a “house” phone. The husband and I have a contract phone each, but we have nothing at the house if the kids have an emergency and need to call out or call us if they happen to get home and we aren’t there. I love the low cost of this plan.
I love the smart phone offerings at Walmart Family Mobile! I wish I wasn’t under contract right now, I could save so much money by using their plan!
These are such great options to have. Love that they are making it easier for the whole family to enjoy amazing gadgets and SAVE at the same time!

Thats some fast shipping, I wish the plans and the online ordering was similar in Canada, makes me so jealous!
Walmart has a really impressive selection of phones and accessories now. And a no contract plan is a nice thing!
my hubby uses this, and has since last summer. it’s a great option!!
I’m looking into getting smartphones for my parents and bringing them into the 21st century, so thanks for sharing this! My mom is as frugal as I am so I know she’ll appreciate the great deals at Walmart!
That’s a great deal. Our oldest son is 11 and we may need to look at getting him a phone soon. I’m glad there are reasonable offers available now.
This is a really affordable plan for families. Great for kiddos too since it’s actually affordable!
this would be great for my family, my daughter wants a phone and this would be a great plan for us.

I have heard wonderful things about their phone plans – they sound super affordable!
What a great price! They have great phone plans.
I am planning to buy a new phone and I think those are great choices. I am happy to see you and your son having a great time together. 🙂
My Husband and I both have Walmart phones and love them. You just can’t beat the price.

Isn’t this an AWESOME plan? I’ve been on this plan for 9 months now and love it.. the quality is awesome and the price can’t be beat. So glad you guys can stay connected; loved seeing the pic of the two of you… Thanks for sharing
We are looking into cell phones after not having them for a year… I’m going to look into Walmart! Good prices! Thanks!
I’m actually looking into getting new service since my contract plan is so expensive. I want a really good phone though…wonder if I can use one from elsewhere?
I really need to check this out the next time I go to Walmart. Sounds like a really good deal.
Very cool! I love the accessories you can find for phones. My son is really wanting a cell phone but we keep making him wait a little longer; maybe next year?
I love this idea as Amber Edwards mentioned for a home phone! Way cheaper + pay as you go!
My sister and her teenaged sons all use this. They love it. I may need to switch when my contract is up. Thanks for the info!
How cute are you guys with your phones?? Love that they give a discount for each additional line. #client
I’ve been thinking about switching over to Wal Mart for my cell phone. Everywhere else is just too expensive and it always sucks going over my data plan and having to spend even more money. :(. Thank you for the post, I’ll be keeping it in mind!
I’m curious to know what the bottom line monthly bill is going with Walmart. Right now I have Verizon and I just think it is way too much. I’m looking for a cheaper plan at least 25% to 50% cheaper than what I am paying now. I don’t know maybe my expectations are too great but I am ready to just go phoneless.
Hi Trish, I pay $39.99 for my son’s service Unlimited Talk, Text and Data/Web and $34.00 for my unlimited everything. Every new line is $34 per month. I have not figured out the “data” thing yet. I bought a data card but then found out that those are only for Long Distance or Overseas calling? So I would check on that if you use a lot of data since I cant help you with that. I know a lot of people who have switched because of the price. My daughter is switching to our plan this month from $100 per month contract and she is so happy! Good Luck!
