March into Savings with Walmart Family Mobile
Spring Break is so close we can feel it! This year, we decided to take the time to travel back to one of our favorite destinations – Myrtle Beach, SC. We really hemmed and hawed over going though. The last few months we’ve spent a lot of energy trying to save money. Our children have grown and that means we now have truly outgrown the condo we live in. Life can’t be all work though right? We need some fun in the sun! The major issue for us the cost of travel. Flying was out of the question for four people, being close to $1,000! According to the Triple AAA Fuel Estimator, it seems that our trip will cost around $130 round trip from New Jersey to South Carolina. Now that’s a number that is not only doable, but very easy to save for!
In our quest to save our pennies, we looked for things to cut out here and there. Morning coffees at Starbuck’s, unsubscribing to Netflix, and changing out cell phone plan. If you’re like me, you may have become a customer of a cell phone company a decade ago and never once looked back, even though you were unhappy with the service and cost. I finally said enough. Our phones are a necessity. Long ago, we opted out of a land line phone and use our cell phones as our main number. With two little kids and a husband who works odd and long hours, I need reliable service. I decided it was time to think outside of the box and get out mainstream phone carriers. I asked friends and family and the prices people were paying per month were outrageous!
In one of our trips to our local WalMart, my husband noticed the sign for their NEW Walmart Family Mobile’s 4G LTE Service. I came home and did a little research and before I knew it we were back in the store ready to make the big switch!
Look at these savings!
Currently I pay $124.83 for 2 phone lines with a traditional carrier. With the Walmart Family Mobile’s NEW 4G LTE Service I am able to get Unlimited Talk, Text AND a Data service plan which includes up to 500MB of 4G LTE data for just $29.88 (for the first line) a month! From my research these are the lowest priced unlimited plans.

My husband had been using his original Nokia phone from about a decade ago and hears about it every time he makes a phone call. He was ready to upgrade and he chose the Alcatel Evolve 2 which is currently on markdown from $59.88 to $39.83. It has everything he needs and wants:
- 4″ touchscreen,
- 5MP Camera,
- 1.3 GHz Dual-Core Processor
- Android OS (now he can use apps I love like Instagram)
- Built in WiFi
By switching to Walmart Family Mobile’s NEW 4G LTE
Service, I am saving $65 in just ONE month!
Look how easy it was to save our gas money for our trip! Spring Break here we come! With rising costs everywhere, it is refreshing to know that Walmart Family Mobile offers a 4G LTE service that is affordable and reliable.
