TracFone Promo Code Update – September, 2011

by pbushx2 on

First I need to apologize for the “About Us” email that went out yesterday. I was setting up some new pages on the site and didn’t mean for it to go out as a new post, but realized the problem to late. I hope I didn’t confuse anyone with that!

Anyway, I did some updating of the Tracfone Promo code list earlier this week, and I’ve added those codes to the list.¬†For the current TracFone Promotional Code database, click here.
Here is a list of the (few) codes I added:

  • 70826 for 60 bonus minutes on a 120-minute card
  • 23683 for 40 bonus minutes on a 200-minute card
  • 24332 for 200 bonus minutes on a 400-minute, one year card

I’ve also received a lot of requests lately for codes that will give a discount when buying a phone from TracFone, Net10, or Straight Talk. Unfortunately, all the older codes that I’ve used earlier this year are apparently expired, and I haven’t found any new ones lately. But if I do find new ones, I will added them to the list.

Finally, I need to apologize for allowing the promo code list to become so cluttered with expired codes. I will clean it up before next month’s update, if not sooner. Thanks for your patience!

Any thoughts on the Samsung Galaxy Precedent and it’s use of the Sprint Towers? I live in the Orlando, Fl. Area and all the Sprint customers I talk to aren’t happy. I’ve read some reviews that say that the Sprint Towers are their weakness. Do you agree?

I definitely agree. The Sprint network’s lack of coverage is definitely its Achilles’ heel. They cover densely-populated areas and major highways really well. But in most rural areas and even some suburban areas where I’ve traveled, it gets to be a big problem. For me personally, I make a bulk of my calls when I’m away from home, and this sometimes includes those rural areas. Verizon is the clear winner for comprehensive coverage in my area, with AT&T in second place. T-Mobile is behind, but at least with them you can roam onto AT&T when necessary. Sprint is last. And you won’t be able to roam onto Verizon, either. So it’s a pretty big deal.
Of course, this can vary depending on your location. But as a general rule, the order I listed is how it works in most areas. And the best determinant is the experience reported by cell users in your area. If local Sprint users aren’t happy, that’s a pretty good indication that Sprint’s coverage leaves something to be desired.

Hi Doris, I guess I don’t quite understand your question. Couldn’t you each use one of the codes from the list?

Hi Patrick,
As you work on your review of the Motorola EX124g, see if there is any way to move the “web connection” icon on the first screen. Also, is there a way to STOP it before it deducts .5 minutes. I just got the phone and have given Tracfone way too many minutes hitting this button. It is usually by clicking the “back” button too many times and too fast when returning from another menu, with the final click activating the web connection and taking my minutes. Thanks for all your reviews!

Just noticed Tracfone now has triple minutes on the LG800g on their site, and the price is still the same ($49.99).

Also, Pbush, titles for Name and Email don’t show up when you try to leave a comment – you have to guess where to put them.

YES, WE COULD BOTH USE THE SAME CODE…EXCEPT, BOTH OF US DOES NOT ADD MINUTES AT THE SAME TIME, THEREFORE,…BOTH COULD NOT USE THE SAME CODE, IF ONE’S EXPIRATION DATE WAS SIX MONTHS DOWN THE ROAD..THE CODE WOULD HAVE EXPIRED BY THEN.. MAYBE I’M NOT MAKING MYSELF CLEAR..ANYHOW THANKS FOR ALL THE INFO. I DID USE CODE 21480 ON OCT. 1, AND IT WORKED.
YOU ALSO OFFERED A BOOKLET FOR $3.00 WITH INFO ON HOW TO SAVE MONEY WITH TRACFONE..SINCE I DON’T HAVE A CREDIT CARD, I WONDERED IF YOU WOULD ACCEPT A MO VIA SNAIL MAIL FOR THIS BOOKLET. IF SO, PLEASE SEND AN ADDRESS TO SEND TO..
AGAIN THANKS FOR THE UPDATES
DORIS

Hi Doris, sorry for the delay. I made a mistake in how I was handling comments and missed your response. The booklet is outdated now and I need to get an updated copy written. when I do, I will offer it for free to subscribers of this blog. So if you watch the blog posts, you’ll get a free copy once it’s updated.

On the subject of triple minute for life cards you can add to your phone possibly being available in the future, I just found this in the Terms of Service fine print on Tracfone’s website:

“Double and Triple Minutes for Life of Phone: Some TRACFONE phones and Airtime Cards include a Double or Triple Minutes for Life feature. The double or triple minutes feature applies to the life of a single TRACFONE phone.”

I haven’t seen any cards yet that do this, but this makes it sound like they may actually happen!

Now, here is some more to add some confusion:

“You may not add a Double or Triple Minute card to a TRACFONE that already has a Double or Triple minute feature or card. Doing so will not result in any additional doubling or tripling of purchased airtime.”

This could mean that you won’t be able to upgrade a double minute phone to triple minutes at all. But with all their new phone coming with double minutes, what would be the purpose of having the triple minute cards if you couldn’t add them to a double minute phone? OR, it could just mean that you won’t get any additional benefit by adding a double minute card to a double minute phone, or a triple minute card to a triple minute phone, leaving open the possibilty that adding a triple minute card to a double minute phone might do something. Should be interesting, to say the least…
