I don’t like my current cell phone carrier as I’ve already told you, so as part of sponsored exercise through Collective Bias, I’m still researching the Walmart Family Mobile Plan to see what others have to say. The service in my area still isn’t really strong (PS In case I haven’t told you, we live on an island so that’s to be expected), but the price plan sure is, so I’m
stalking following along with others to hear what they have to say about it with my fingers crossed that the service will pick up a bit in my area before I make the big switch for the family when our contracts are up.
The things that make me excited about this plan are: 1) There are no contracts, 2) They have a flat monthly rate of $40 for unlimited talk, text, and web, and 3) My family could save a TON of money each year with this service.
I noticed that my buddy Mallery over at the Horrible Housewife was trying out the service and I know that she doesn’t live as remotely as I do so I was curious as to what she had to say (plus she makes me giggle). Seems the service will help her save for her long overdue honeymoon this fall. Here’s what she had to say:
“Cheap Wireless Plans are like unicorns, a very rare and magical concept, something people dream about these days. And you bet the Schuplin household could stand to have some unicorns… err… cheap wireless plans in their life! Our better late than never California honeymoon is happening this fall and that means it’s time to fill the piggy bank with all of the change we can scrounge up! For the record, we are going on our honeymoon around our third anniversary.”
She further details her experience by saying:
“Start working out your nimble fingers because text and picture messages are unlimited with Walmart Family Mobile! Now don’t worry a ton about your data usage because you get 1GB at 3G speeds and you can purchase a ‘boost’ if you need more data usage. Coming from a social media junkie who carries her phone in her sports bra if she doesn’t have pockets, 1GB of data is plenty for an everyday internet-a-holic.”
So I’m very hopeful that the service in my area will pick up really soon, they tell me it will. I’ll be honest, B and I haven’t even had a honeymoon yet and we’ve been married 10 years. If I could switch to this service and ditch my current carrier PLUS go on a honeymoon with my husband like Mallery, I’m totally doing it. You really need to check them out. People across the nation are singing their praises. Of course they are. $40 per month for unlimited wireless service? Yes, that does sound like unicorns now doesn’t it?
Head on over to hear all that Mallery has to say in Are Cheap Wireless Plans Possible? and watch her video to find out more (and because you totally need a giggle). Leave her a comment because she really digs them and follow along with the rest of her antics. You’ll thank me later.
If you already use this service, let me know what you think and how much money you’re saving. If you head to Walmart to check it out, let me know that too. I’d love to hear from you.
