I’ve talked before about my family that lives far away and how we look for the best opportunities to stay in touch. In the winter months, my parents migrate from Canada to Florida to escape the cold winters, and my sister stays behind over there while I live in Dallas. For the better part of a year, we are all scattered from each other which is why I’m always looking for rates on the lowest priced unlimited plans out there.
Walmart Family Mobile fits the bill pretty well and as a current customer, I couldn’t be more pleased with my service. This is what propelled my gift buying decision towards an LG L90 mobile for my parents Christmas present this year. Since they are temporary residents in Florida each year, they do not wish to get involved in any lengthy contracts, so they rely on old-school pay-as-you-go phones. While these phones are great and do the job, they lack all the current smartphone features that everyone loves to have access to.
When I noticed that the LG L90 was on rollback from $179 to $119, so I definitely had to jump on that before I lost my opportunity to cash in on a great value. I also picked up a starter kit because I wanted to make sure the service was already signed up before I gave it to them, and of course have the battery with a good charge on it. Plus that kinda takes the hassle part out, leaving you to ‘gift’ the fun part!
So after charging the phone battery, I used the card within the starter kit to begin the process of activation. It’s so simple, and all the instructions are on the inside of the starter kit which you purchase for 25$ in addition to the phone.
Then, you slip it in the slot on the phone behind the battery…
Now the last thing I need to do is make sure this gift looks awesome! I decided to minimize the packaging as much as possible, and gift the important parts – The phone! I put the user guide inside a red envelope which will be used to help the whole ‘wrapped’ look anyway.
Finally, after tying some raffia around it, and making a pretty bow, it was ready to give! I love small gifts – good things always come in small packages!!
The cost of the monthly plan for Walmart Family Mobile is lower than any other out there at $34.88 per month – and that includes unlimited talk, text and web! You can add a second line to the account for $29.88 and comes with an additional 5GB of 3G data.
If you decide this gift might be great for a loved one this Christmas, be sure to look at some of the other rollbacks on other great phones too!
- Alcatel One Touch Evolve 2 – $49.88 (was $59.88)
- ZTE ZMAX – $179.00 (was $199.88)
- Nokia Lumia 635 – $99.88 (was $129.88)
- Samsung Galaxy Exhibit – $79.88 (was $99.88)
- Nokia Lumia 530 – $49.88 (was $69.88)
Did you know that you can claim a $40 Walmart Gift Card with the purchase of the Samsung Galaxy Avant until 12/27/14? With that kind of rebate, it makes the $199 cost of the phone much more attractive!
