5 Great Deals and Discounts on Tracfone

Beginning with some minutes to get you through the year!

Save $15 on a 1 Year/400 Minute Card - Tracfone Website

1 Year/400 Minute Tracfone Card Discount
To start this off, Tracfone is offering $15 off their 1 Year/ 400 Minute Card. This brings the price down to $85 (although you may have to pay some significant taxes). This is a pretty good price, as minutes are rarely discounted very much. Plus, if you are using a non-Android device, you can get 250 bonus minutes from our Tracfone Promo Codes.

The code for $15 off is 99138 and you enter this at checkout on the Tracfone website.

However, you can also find similar prices for the 1 Year card on eBay from a variety of sources. Many of these sellers will mail you the PIN, but some will actually email you the PIN so you can input it faster.

We haven't tried all of these sellers, so we can't verify every one, but many users have found that buying through online retailers like Amazon and eBay is a good way to save some money. Do a little of your own research, and hopefully save some money on minutes!

Moto X 32GB Developers Edition
With Tracfone adding 4G LTE service to their BYOP program, it opens the door to some really impressive phones, but also some fantastic deals like this Moto X 32GB Android.

This phone comes with a nice 4.7" display, 2 GB of RAM, a 10 MP camera, and 32 GB of storage space. There is also a newer version of this phone, but it is a bit more expensive. At a little under $250, this is a great value, especially if you're in need of a lot of internal memory.

Several refurbished versions can be found on eBay for about $150, with a new LG G2 phone at closer to $300 (still not a bad deal for the specs).

Two comments - I just tried to use the promo code to buy minutes only to find out that you cannot use promo codes to buy minutes for android phones. Also, the text card you mentioned disappeared from the Tracfone sight last week. I saw it one evening and when I went on the next day to purchase, it had disappeared. Do you know any more about that or if it will be available in the future?

I'm looking at buying a moto e with the current deal, it looks like a very nice phone that I can afford. Two questions, I read that you get 60 service days and 10/20 minutes when you activate a phone, do I get this on top the the year that the moto e deal comes with?

Also, is the device useless without minutes/service time? I mean, if I buy the device and the service days end, will it be possible to continue using the device for apps and music until I can buy a new card, or will the device have no usage without tracfone service?

No word on when or if the text card will come back. It should come back, since a lot of people wanted it.

I'm not sure about how many minutes you get with a new phone, could be 10 minutes and 30 service days? It should be added to whatever you already have or the airtime deal that comes with the phone. And yes, if you run out of minutes/airtime, you can still use the phone on WiFi at your home or office and use apps.

Amazing reviews, thank you! I remember when tracfone first came out and it was impossible to find any support for it.. This is very appreciated! So tempted to upgrade from a flip phone to the ultimate 2!
I was looking around for an answer to this question but haven't found one so far.. on non-android phones, the texting fee is .30 to send and .30 to read one. so for Android phones, knowing it's 1.0 unit to send a text, is it also 1.0 unit to read one, or did they take that charge out? I know they all have triple minutes to balance it out, but I wanted to check... It seems like a bummer, but maybe it really doesn't feel different comparatively with the extra minutes?
