How I Used Walmart Family Mobile to Make My Tax Return Go Farther

A few years ago, my wife and I realized that our mobile phone bill had gotten WAYYYY out of hand.  We were paying not only for our 2 phones but for my son’s phone, my mother in law’s phone, and for 3 separate tablets.  It had gotten absolutely out of hand so we knew we had to make a change to get those costs under control.

We decided to switch over to the Walmart Family Mobile Plan because the benefits were amazing and it saved us a significant amount of money each month.  We are on the $49.88/mo unlimited plan which is unlimited Talk, Text, & Data that includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE then 2G plus a free VUDU movie credit every month ($7 value).

Our income tax return came in so we knew we needed to spend part of it on updating our phones.  I decided on the Samsung Galaxy On5 because I read great reviews of it online and I had always had great luck with Samsung products in the past.  But probably most importantly for us, Walmart had it on rollback for $69.00, where normally it is $119.99.  It was a great way to make our tax return go even farther than we planned.

Keep in mind that if this is the first Walmart Family Mobile phone you are buying, you will also need to purchase an activation SIM kit for $19.88 but even with that, it’s a fantastic deal.  And since Walmart Family Mobile bills you later, that’s all you need upfront!

The unlimited plan (Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G) also includes a FREE movie rental every month through Vudu. ($7 movie value is the same as a new release rental) Since Dian and I never seem to find the time to go out to the movies anymore, the movie rental makes a great date night.  Once a month we cuddle up with our phone and Chromecast the movie to our TV and settle in for a stay at home date night.  It’s really a nice bonus every month!

The unlimited data (Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G) is nice also because it means I can watch YouTube videos while I’m out and check in on my Clash of Clans game.  No lie, I am absolutely addicted to that game.  It’s insane.
