Saving on Cellular Service

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

Once upon a time I was even poorer than I am now if you can believe it but needed a cell phone for my own piece of mind while traveling. As much as I pay now, there would have been no way I could afford having a cell phone on a contract way back then. I have actually used TracFone before, in fact, for years before I finally broke down and bought one on contract. I bought a Motorola phone from one of the supercenters before there were so many features on phones. It just made calls, that is it. Of course, that is all I needed it for too so it did its purpose well and cost effectively I might add. The reason why I chose TracFone was the fact that I was not locked into a contract which alleviates the cancellation fees, no credit checks needed, and no activation fee either.

Being one of the real TracFone customers I can honestly say I never had an issue with the phone service at all. I am glad to see that they are still in business and have expanded because I believe only US phone calls were allowed when I had it before. You can now call internationally and still pay the same rate as if you were calling your neighbor. Some of the specials of the service cards include for the 1 year service card double minutes for the life of the TracFone and 800 minutes for $119.00. My current monthly cell phone bill is about $20 shy of that. It's insane how much we pay for service while in a contract. If that does not appeal to you and you just need the phone for short traveling trips you could buy a monthly plan of 200 minutes for under $30.00 or 50 minutes for $9.99.
