Buying and Using Tracfone Minutes

Here are my recommendations on how to buy Prepaid Tracfone Minutes.

You may buy Track Phone cards at many stores like Wal-Mart, K-Mart, or Safeway but I recommend buying the cards at the web site for a couple of reasons.

Don’t Purchase TracFone Minutes Cards

At the Tracfone web site you can purchase a phone and receive more minutes than if you purchase a card. Often Tracfone has on special in the “buy phones” section where for the same price as a 450 minute card you get a free phone. This special, when available is only in the Tracfone Purchase Phones section. If you go to the “buy airtime” section of the web site you will pay full price for the unit cards.

Do Not Activate a lot of Minutes on your Tracfone Phone

I do not recommend having too many Tracfone Minutes
on your phone for a couple of reasons. With a broken, lost or stolen phone it is hard to get your minutes back on a new phone from Tracfone. Also I have found when I have lots of minutes on a phone I use a lot more minutes.

The Tracfone One Year Plan

The One Year Plan can be a good deal. Again if your phone is broken, lost or stolen you will have a hassle getting Tracfone customer service to transfer these benefits to your new phone. I recently got a bonus code for 300 minutes on a one year card. This meant I got 1100 minutes on the phone and one year of use.

If you use Tracfone Bonus codes and purchase your minutes on special you can usually get more TracFone Minutes with the money than you get with the one year plan.

Only Buy a Tracfone with DMFL

Only buy The Doubler Card on the phone, if you only use 100-200 minutes per month you are still better off only buying a Tracfone with the DMFL (double minutes for life card included. The DMFL card will usually cost you $50 but you can buy the Motorola W370 with doubler for $50, you will get the doubler for free. If you live in CDMA territory then you will be able to purchase the LG 3280 with DMFL for $50.

If you are absolutely certain you will use no more than 70 minutes per month you might purchase one of the Tracfones without the DMFL. Otherwise you are much better off purchasing a phone with the DMFL (double minutes for life).

Moto W370, LG 225, Lg 3280 with DMFL

The Moto W370 and the Lg cg225 phones now always come with DMFL (double minutes for life). These phones are the nicest phones offered by Tracfone. Usually the price is the same as you will pay to add DMFL to a Tracfone. I recommend you buy the nicer Tracfone with DMFL and a Tracfone Minute Card included.

Tracfone Bonus Code Coupons

When you add a Tracfone Minute Card you can use Bonus Coupon Codes. These are a 5 digit code that when you add them at the same time you are adding a 15 digit code to your Tracfone you will get an extra 40 to 300 minutes. I use this page to Buy Tracfone Minutes and use Bonus Coupons
