TracFone- A Low Cost and Reliable Cell Phone Provider

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you been looking for ways to lower your monthly bills? Why not look at what you are spending monthly on your cell phone service? I did just this last year and after much research I decided to switch from my monthly contract plan to TracFone, which is one of the least expensive ways to own and use a cell phone in America. Along with being a great low cost alternative to what you may have right now, TracFone has no contracts, no credit checks, no activation charges and no cancelation fees. What they do have is great nationwide coverage and excellent reception and connectivity. And if you think because this is a pay as you go cell phone provider that they have old fashioned phones, you are wrong. TracFone offers brand name phones from such companies as Motorola, Kyocera, LG, Nokia and Samsung. Your choice of phone styles range anywhere from simple candy bar style phones (which is what I have) to bluetooth enabled "smart" phones. Myself and other real TracFone customers really enjoy the aspect of not having a monthly bill to worry about while still having great cell phone service. And also like me, real TracFone customers enjoy not receiving any surprise bills in the mail. TracFone is straightforward with no hidden fees and no complicated phone bills to decipher for inaccuracies.

As far as the monthly plans go, there are many options within the realm of the no contract world of TracFone. You can pay as you go online or purchase airtime cards which are available at thousands of retail stores across the country. One year service cards are a great way to go as they give you so much more- you get double minutes for the life of your TracFone and 800 minutes for only $119 (that's only about $10 a month!). Double minutes for the life of your TracFone is also a feature that can be purchased separately for only $19.99 but some phones actually include it (mine did and it is awesome)! TracFone also offers monthly plans from $30 a month for 200 minutes to as low as $9.99 for 50 minutes.

I would have to say though, that something that really sets TracFone apart from the competition is their international calling capabilities. They are the only wireless service where you can call internationally for the same price as any other call meaning you can call over 60 international destinations directly from your TarcFone at no extra cost! And they don't stop there- TracFone also offers the option of the International Neighbors Program. With this program, you can provide family and friends in Mexico or Canada with a local phone number in those countries to reach you at your TracFone. So, not only do you save yourself money on international calls by having a TracFone but your friends and family in Mexico and Canada save money when they place a call to you because their call is considered local!

As I touched on earlier, TarcFone offers a variety of phones to choose from. They have simple phones for simple needs such as calling and texting capabilities for as low as under $10  to phones packed with so many features such as camera/video recorders, web access, app capabilities, mp3 players and full QWERY keyboards for $29.99.

If I haven't been convincing enough, hear what other real TracFone customers have to say about why they chose TracFone as their preferred cell phone provider.

  1. I live in Canada but most of my relatives lives in other countries so i wanted to know how to make cheap international calls from Canada to reduce my call rates.

  2. Tracfone calls and texts you with advertising and subtracts these units/minutes from your plan. You have to be frugal enough and inventive enough to wade through all their customer service prompts to find out how to stop these calls and texts, and to explicitly say DO NOT CONTACT ME IN ANYWAY. Tracfone charges you to listen to your voice mail, plus charging you for receving a phone call and charges you to set up your voice mail. No one offered to reimburse me for these lost minute.
