Tracfone is a prepaid wireless cell phone company that provides both phones and service. Many of their phones come with a special bonus of Double or Triple Minutes. In this post we will share many of the phones that have Triple Minutes, and help provide details on how Triple Minutes work.

Let's start with our first question:

How Does Triple Minutes Work with Tracfone?

The way Tracfone prepaid service works is you buy airtime cards that come with certain amounts of minutes, like 60, 120 200 etc.

When you add the airtime card to your phone with Double Minutes, you will get twice the number of minutes. If you have Triple Minutes, you get three times the number of minutes.

So, for example. if you add a 200 minute card to your Triple Minute phone, you will get 600 minutes total (200 minutes plus 400 bonus minutes). And that's before you add a Promo Code!

If you have a smartphone, however, things are a little different. Smartphones split up the Talk/Text/Data into three different pools. But, all Tracfone smartphones come with Triple Minutes, so you end up getting 3x Talk minutes, 3x Data and 3x Texts.

We have several full posts providing further details on this including, How Do Minutes Work on Android Tracfones.

You can also learn about How Data Works on Tracfone Smartphones, and How to Buy More Texts for your Tracfone.

Now, here is the list of cell phones form Tracfone with Triple Minutes for life.

  1. I was reading up on phones on Amazon and someone posted that on the triple minute phones they are now operating in a way that you triple minutes, texts, and mb's. For example, a 60 minute card would now be worth 180 minutes, 180 texts and 180 mb. I am looking to upgrade from an older slider double minute phone to an LG 840G. Do you know if this is an accurate report for the newer phones?

    1. This is true for the new Android smartphones from amazon for tracfone.

    2. I'm considering buying a smartphone from Tracfone. The advertisement uses this same language "a 60 minute card would now be worth 180 minutes, 180 texts and 180 mb" which sounds like your minutes are tripling twice. I currently have an LG 800 G, which has the triple minute feature, but the total minutes, from the above example, look like "buy a 60 minute card...180 minutes OR 180* texts OR 180 MB data".
      * My phone normally charges 1/3 minute per text received and 1/3 minute per text sent. MMS messages cost 1.5 minutes each, which is lame.

    3. Tracfone does give triple minutes on most of their pricier phones $39 and up BUT IF YOU have to use it to go on the WEB it the speed kind of SUCKS they buy all the 3G space on the market from VERIZON, AT&T and T Mobile - and 3 G is slow - but if you are using it as a CELL PHONE the quality is there and the price per minute is still around 6 3/4 cents. For phone and text it can't be beat unless you could get a $30 deal with rollover minutes somewhere and 4 G on the Internet. For Internet use 3 G is just too slow.

    4. YEP that's correct. not sure on the 180 mb though. They do provide 3 G NOT 4 G LTE which is slow.

  2. Hi there! Glad for the site! I was trying to use a promo code online, and I was wondering, since I have a phone that doubles the minutes automatically, if it takes the base minutes, plus the promo minutes and doubles them, or just doubles the base minutes and adds on the promo mins.

    Thanks for a reply in advance :)

    1. The promo codes won't double, so you just get the amount listed. But some codes have higher bonus minutes than others, so you can get a few more minutes.

  3. the top promo code for jan 2015 worked 4 me thanks,jps johnnie paul,that was opies fishin buddy on mayberry rfd

  4. I have a triple minutes for life tracfone and up to now I've been buying cards & also adding the minutes from a promo code. Just now I got a message on the phone that I can get $15.00 off of a year's supply of minutes. If I do this ON my phone (rather than buying a card) will these minutes triple also?

  5. 85973 worked for 200 minutes, March 5 2015

  6. LG 305C is Triple Minutes for Life.

    1. I just got this phone for my daughter but it is not showing triple minutes, did you have this experience when using your phone?

  7. I use the 30 day unlimited plan cards, and a triple minutes phone. Is triple minutes comparable with 30 day unlimited plans?

  8. code 43054 gave me an extra 200 minutes on the purchase of 1500 minutes through Tracfone web buy. Used this code on June 27, 2015.

  9. I have a few questions if anyone can help. Im looking @ an Lg 2 ultimate. Comes with 1200 min./data/text- tripple for life. When i renew min. do i have to buy 1200 min cards? Does min./ data etc. roll over, if not do they last till you use them all? Also how much does a 1 yr. Service contract cost, and lastly if you have two exact phones do they do any type of shared min. Plan? A lot to answer I know, but would really appreciate it! :-)

  10. Is all LG ultimate 2 phone triple minute for life? I am thinking about buying from E-bay, but seller said it is not triple minute. Who is right?
