With tax returns coming in splurging on a new designer bag or beauty haul is tempting, but I'm maxing my refund by cutting my phone bill and making the switch to Walmart Family Mobile. With no contact and many phones under $100, Family Mobile offers one of the lowest priced unlimited plans at $29.88/month(for the first line) Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan which includes up to 500MB of 4G LTE data. Treat yourself and save money at the same time? I call that a total win-win!
To make the switch I made way to my local Walmart Store just a quick drive outside of Seattle. I was already headed there to pick up supplies for the big game so getting a new phone was as convenient as ever. We won't talk about the game. Heartbreak!
Walmart Family Mobile Display I purchased the ZTE ZMAX ($179 on rollback from $199.88) and the Standard & Micro SIM Starter Kit ($25). The phone was located near the bottom of the display case with the Starter Kit in the circular consoles next to the display phones.
The ZTE ZMAX is a really awesome phone or "phablet". Its a nice alternative to my smaller phone for doing things like watching Netflix. I love the huge 5.7 inch HD touchscreen display, 8 MP camera, and built in GPS features. The Zmax runs off Android 4.4 with a 1.2GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor so its super fast too! It meets all of my needs for calls, text, accessing email, and browsing my favorite apps. I am so impressed by the performance of this phone for being a brand unfamiliar to me and also so affordable.
Having saved some cash on the phone itself, it's on rollback for $20 less, I had to get some phone accessories to go with it. There are a lot of cute cases for the ZMAX! I bought a black diamond case with a leopard wallet to style it up a bit.
Thanks to #cbias for getting me hooked up with Walmart Family Mobile and checking "save money" off of my New Years Resolution list! How do you plan to spend your tax refund?
