How to Test More than One TracFone Promo Code

How to Try More Than One TracFone Promo Code When Adding a New Card

Have you ever wanted to use a promo code, but you weren't sure if it would work? Or have you actually used one, but it was expired so you didn't get any bonus minutes?

Avoid missing out on these bonus minutes by using this simple method for adding a new phone card to your TracFone Prepaid Phone.

Enter Your Promo Code at TracFone.com and Test up to 3 Different Promo Codes!

Adding Airtime at TracFone.com
Here is how to try several different promo codes:

  1. Go to Tracfone.com 
  2. Click 'Add Airtime', then click 'Add Card Online' from the drop down menu.
  3. This will bring up a menu where you can add the phone card pin, your phone number, and a promo code. 

If your first code doesn't work, a message will pop up and say that it is expired, etc. You are then able to try a different promo code.

You can try up to three promo codes. On the third try, whatever pin/promo code combination you have used will be processed. If that promo code is expired, then you won't get any bonus minutes. So always make sure the third promo code you enter is working.

You can end the transaction before entering the third promo code, allowing you to restart the process and not miss out on getting some bonus minutes!

Using this method allows you to try one or two codes that might be expired without missing a chance to get bonus minutes.

Be sure to check out our list of TracFone Promo Codes to find a few to try next time you add minutes to your phone!

  1. After the second code fails, you can also cancel the transaction and start over again for another two attempts, and so on for several times from my experience!!!

  2. I purchased airtime today for two phones and was able to put in sveral codes ( 5 ) until finally the 5th one was accepted and was not turned out after 3 tries.

  3. Best off with triple minute phones. Today I added a 200 minute card and received 60 bonus minutes via the code tracfone reviewer. I received a total of 460 minutes for $44. Of course, had it been a triple minutes phone I would have received 660 minutes. I broke it down by cost per unit. The 460 minutes for $44 came to $.096/unit. Had I used a triple minutes phone it would have been $.067/unit. It makes a difference. Thank You tracfonereviewer for the codes and information. The code you suggested offered a better bonus than the one offered by tracfone.

  4. I've never been limited to only 3 tries.

  5. You guys are great! My original coupon book expired last year and I just expected that that was the end of that. Rather than adding by phone (like usual) I Googled "Tracfone" and saw "tracfone promo code" down about 4 options. The 1st code I tried worked.Those minutes would have cost me $20 otherwise. While you haven't quite restored my faith in humanity, I no longer have the urge to hole up in a bunker with assault weapons and cases of Ramen, muttering to myself. Thank You!

  6. The procedure described above asks for an airtime PIN from an airtime card or cash register receipt, which you may not have. Here is the alternate procedure for buying directly online:

    Go to Tracfone homepage -> select Add Airtime, Buy Online -> on the next screen, select "Pay As You Go" -> on the next screen, select the cards you want to buy, then in the area on the right of the screen, enter your phone/serial/IMEI number and promo code -> click "continue to checkout"

    If the code is expired, you will get a warning message in a red banner at the top of the next screen. Try another code. To be safe, I only did this twice, then closed the window and started over. When you finally enter a code that works, it will take you directly to the payment login screen.

  7. I am so grateful to this site for giving me this information, and to the commentors here who have added to it -- thank you all, VERY much!
    I can't believe that I've gone for so long without knowing this vital information.

  8. I just used code 84464 bought 60 minutes and got 90 bonus minutes! What a bargain!

  9. New to Tracfone. So I understand, you can only use 1 good promo code in final transaction. You can't stack (provide), 2 or more good codes, and get both Promos, right? This whole discussion, is how to make sure you get one (1), that is active and will take, right? thanks.

    1. Yes, you are correct. Tracfone puts out a lot of codes, and they don't always say when they expire. So this is about how to test different codes until you find one that works. You can only use one code per minute card refil.

  10. Sure glad I came across this blog.
    My service end date comes in a few days, but I still have several hundred minutes remaining. What the best deal, or combination, that would extend my service date, while adding little or no minutes?
    Thank one and all.

    1. I just used a Monthly Value Plan to add 30 days for 5.99 plus taxes and fees, which for me came out to around $6.50 per month. This will be added to my account automatically when my due date arrives. So the only catch is that I will have to monitor my minutes. When my minutes are getting low, I'll have to purchase more in some way and catch it before I run out, or I'll be charged 6.50 to add time I can't use/don't need and will still have to add time with the purchase of minutes. Does this make sense?
      Anyway, I figure this is cheaper than $99 for a year (6.50 x 12 = 78) and I continue to get the advantage that I don't have to recalculate my best plan every couple of months.

    2. thank you Carol. My mom has several hundred minutes (she never runs out!)but is out of days. My first thought was to try doing the $5.99 plan, but wasn't sure if it would work month after month, just adding 30 days for only $6-ish. Sounds like this will be the best way for her to keep service on.

  11. Hello everyone,
    Can anyone give me instructions how to download all my contacts, texts inbox and texts sent which I stored on my Samsung SFG T105G and I urgently need the info?
    It was just a $10 phone but there is no where to put a memory card (and Im not bill gates when it comes to pc's either)?

    Just to make it a little more difficult I have a macbook pro with MAC OX 10.6.8?
    thanks to anyone who can help me out.
    Christine

  16. This site is great!!!

    I didn't think they had codes if you were just buying a 60 card.

    I just used the 72685 code and got the bonus 30 minutes.

    Thank you

  17. Still working. Many thanks and I'll keep the energy going in some way.

  18. I entered a "possibly expired" code first and Tracfone replied that it HAD expired. Then I entered code 72685 for 30 minutes, which you showed was working. Tracfone seemed to accept that, but after the purchase was completed I didn't receive any bonus minutes. How can I know if your code is going to work for my phone?

    1. That's very strange, I would call Tracfone and tell them their code didn't work, and then give it to them. If they tell you it is expired, just try another! They should give you the bonus minutes, although it might be a hassle.

  19. I have a triple minute phone and received those, but when I put in the promo it accepted it then a few seconds later it deducted it from my total. Does that mean it expired? It was one you have for Nov.2013 for 60 min card and up.

  20. Jan 12 2014 tried code 74316 (200 minutes) Did not work and would not let me try another promo code There has to be a better way to get bonus minutes. I feel that this is a rip off and will look into other cell phones that make it much easier for seniors.

  22. Cool!!! I've got a 'triple-minutes-for-life' phone, and always want to use a promo code for extras. Googling "Tracfone promo" I discovered this site and a whole list of codes -- EXCELLENT! The one I used worked nicely. Thanks!
