Tracfone Deals - October 2017
Looking for a new phone? Or just curious about any good deals? We have collected some great deals and discounts on Tracfone devices here for you!

Tracfone sells their phones through a wide variety of methods, including most retail stores like Walmart and Target, and many online retailers such as HSN, Amazon and eBay. You can also buy directly from Tracfone.

But how can you find the best prices on a new phone with so many different sellers? Right here!

We spend a lot of time checking and monitoring different phones available for Tracfone and the prices, and are sharing some of the best deals on a variety of phones here with our readers.

Often the best deals for a new phone are airtime bundles, where you can get a certain amount of airtime along with a new phone. In some cases, the airtime comes preloaded, so be aware of that.

Tracfone has made some Changes to Triple Minutes for Life. Follow the link to learn more about these changes, and how it may affect you. Some newer phones offered by Tracfone no longer include triple minutes.

We have included some smartphone options that you can bring to Tracfone's BYOP program, which is a great way to choose a smartphone that really fits your needs but continue to use prepaid service from Tracfone.

Let's take a look at the deals.

Great site, which I had seen it sooner. What is the difference between the Galaxy Sky (S320VL) and the Galaxy J3 Luna Pro please? I see both of these choices on Tracfone with the biggest difference appearing to be price.

Thank you!

How does the Moto e4 unlocked work with BYOP? A good fir?

I called TracFone with the same question. The Sky still offers triple minutes on the regular airtime cards, the Luna Pro does not (it may only accept the new SmartPhone cards...which are a bit more expensive and, to the best of my knowledge, ONLY available on the TracFone website).

The main difference I noticed between the Galaxy Sky and the Galaxy Luna Pro is a slight increase in processor speed on the Luna Pro. I think the issue with triple minutes isn't such a big deal. If I buy 1500 minutes/texts/megabytes for a triple minutes phone ($200), I'm paying 200/4500 or 4.44 cents per minute/text/MB. If I buy "smartphone only" minutes for $35 on my non-triple minutes smartphone, I get 750 minutes, 1000 texts, and 1GB of data. That means I pay 35/750 or 4.66 cents per minute, 35/1000 or 3.5 cents per text, and 3.5 cents per MB. So I pay a little more for voice while paint less for texts and data.

Does the iPhone SE have triple minutes for life?

I got the iPhone SE from Tracfone a couple of weeks ago, and it's been a terrific upgrade from my prior phone (LG Power). For a brand new iPhone including touch id, Apple Wallet, 32Gb, and much more, $159 is a great price. It came with iOS 10, which I was able to upgrade to 11.0.2. (I was never able to upgrade Android with my prior Android Tracfone phones.) And when I transferred over my number, the minutes and data were doubled. Very, very happy.

One question - I travel to Canada a couple times a year. Does anyone out there know if this can be used in Canada if the SIM card is replaced by a Canadian provider's SIM card (i.e. Rogers, etc.) while I'm there, or is it locked to Tracfone only? Thank you!
