As a family, we’ve found it increasingly hard to find an affordable mobile phone plan, and there’s just two of us with phones now! I can only imagine when all 3 of the boys have their own phones too!
Working in social media, I use my phone all of the time and that means I use a good deal of data throughout the month for work. We’ve also been using more data since we recently traded in our old minivan that had a DVD player– the boys have been using mobile phones to stream movies and shows in the back seat to keep them entertained on road trips!
Frustrated with the increasing costs of cell phones and data, we decided to shop around. I stopped into Walmart to take a look at their Family Mobile PLUS plan (it includes unlimited talk, text, and data (up to 10 GB of 4G LTE) and a free VUDU movie each month!) to see if it might fit our budget better than what we currently have.
With the free VUDU movie rental each month, the boys can watch a new release in the back seat on their tablet (to keep from beating each other up!).
There were a number of different options for cell phones, and I chose the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime (rollback price of $79.92). I really like how it seamlessly syncs with your Google account to make it easy to keep track of e-mails, contacts, and your calendar!

After choosing the phone, I picked up a starter kit ($25.00) which you will need to activate the phone (you will need one for each phone you purchase). When I got home, I opened up the phone, popped in the micro SIM card from my starter kit and set up the phone.
I was unsure of how easy it would be to do on my own, but I was pleasantly surprised! It took me about 10 minutes to get everything set up and my account established. For $49.88 per month you get unlimited talk, text, and data (up to 10GB of 4G LTE), AND a free new release rental on VUDU each month.
It’s tax season, so why not take your refund and use it to get more data for a better price? You can find a phone for each member of the family and start saving!
