My oldest is now of an age where having a phone can help for safety and playdates or get togethers. And then, there are her friends texting and Instagraming and I want to be able to monitor it and not make her feel out of the loop. Spending more money of cell phone service is not something I want to be doing right about now so I started to explore different options that are available out there. I wanted the best wireless that was also a cheap wireless plan or should I say one that wouldn’t break the bank.
My current cell phone service is through AT & T and we are currently in a contract. I didn’t want to start a contract for my daughter but I wanted to see what an affordable new cell phone service would be able to offer. I didn’t want to put her on my plan until I had gone to Walmart and became savvy on the savings and what exactly it had to offer.
To tell you the truth, I am paying a lot right now. When I went on the Walmart website and saw that a Family of 3 would be $110. Wow! That would be a great deal of savings from what I pay now for only two phones! That is truly a #FamilyMobileSaves moment!
So, my youngest and I headed to Walmart to find out all about the Family Mobile Plan. With our busy schedules just getting busier, I wanted to make it easier to stay connected. My oldest is involved in many sports and now my other two are needing to be driven places too. How can I feel safe and figure out who needs to be picked up and when? By getting my oldest a phone, she is able to stay in touch if practice ends early or if there is a change in plans.
Our schedules are just getting hectic. The busier my girls get, the more it seems that the activities get more expensive too. This is one of the reasons I wanted to try the Walmart Family Mobile Plan; I am always looking for savings to help cut costs everywhere. And, when I found out that it is only $40 for Unlimited Talk, Text and Web, I was all smiles.
We haven’t told her yet so stay tuned for her reaction.
To start setting the plan in motion, I headed to Walmart to purchase the Walmart Family Mobile Starter Kit. It was found in the Electronics Department. While in Walmart, my youngest and I shopped for some fun snacks and things we needed for home. The associate told me that after purchasing the Starter Kit, I could take it home and activate the plan in the comfort of my home.
To keep track of my plan, I just need to go to Online account management: https://www.myfamilymobile.com/.
Activating the service was easy and now I have a phone for my oldest.
Keeping connected as a family is important to me and as my girls grow up, I am glad I am able to find affordable options to keep us all connected and safe.
