Tracfone Promo Codes Updated – Feb 2013

by Author on

For the current TracFone Promotional Code database, click here.

I updated the list of codes on Feb 11th. It has been nearly 5 (yes, FIVE!) years since I first started publishing the bonus codes, and this is without a doubt the saddest time for TracFone Promo codes during that time. The codes that I’ve been collecting and curating seem to be dying off slowly in recent months, and there haven’t been many new ones popping up to take their place. For the last month, I’ve found just one lonely new addition to the list:

  • 52822 for 40 bonus minutes on a One Year – 400 -minute card

Meanwhile, I’ve officially moved a bunch more to “expired” status. If you have to add minutes any time soon, it might be worth taking a chance on some of the codes that are marked as expired – sometimes they spring back to life, and it’s also possible that I’ve made a mistake. But in all likelihood, you’ll have to settle for an amount of “bonus minutes” that is lower than what you are used to.

Perhaps this is TracFone’s way of pushing us toward a new phone with Triple Minutes for Life (my Samsung s425g is growing on me, and the LG 840g looks like a winner as well), but for those of us that have spent the last decade or more chasing after the ultimate bonus code, this is a sad day.

We have purchased two(triple minute)phones,mainly because of the lack of promo codes,but also because they were in a 20 bundle.Got the 404 sammy for my wife, and a 390 sammy for myself. I like the 390 so much that I ordered a second (refurb,like NEW).I’m seriously considering buying a 3rd from ebay(shopcell)for a spare battery, and he is offering a 200 minute one year card.Keep up the good work,PhoneGuy…you are appreciated!

Gene,
How is the battery life on your S390? Mine seems to run down pretty quick.
I picked up the 390, with the year card for 48.00. I think it is a hell of a deal.

I was trying to find your promo codes page 2 days ago and the old site didn’t work. I kept getting forwarded to a new site and it was giving me an error. 504, I think.
ANYway, I found this page which lists some codes… but a few of the commenters at the bottom of the page listed a code which gives 80 bonus minutes on a 60 minute card. I used it and did indeed get 80 bonus minutes. This was 2 days ago. The code is: 55698.
Well, I’d give the link to where I found the code but this message doesn’t seem to want to post when I put the link in. =(

i think it’s time for me to replace my 5-year old tracfone. it’s a motoralo W376g. i’m looking for one that will have easier texting (is that a qwerty keyboard?) and has bluetooth so it will sinc with my car. the W376g does that. Any suggestions?

If I may chime in. I really like my S390G also. The hardest thing to get used to is the little track ball like device. But what I wanted to add and answer to Ken’s question is that the battery life is great. It is one of the best Tracfones I have had and one of the best for battery life.
However, my wife’s Motorola EX431G needs to be charged all the time. Not good at all.

I’m just glad that I wasn’t imagining this. I have recently as promo codes were trying up. Maybe it is their way of herding us to Triple minutes.

HI I just added a 1 year 400 min card and got 270 minutes from adding on ay tracfone site where they advertised buying the card and gave a promo number 75769. Something is wrong as I think they took 5 minutes away but still not bad. Didn’t try any of the other numbers from list dated the 11th as this went through. so 2-15-13 75769 worked.

ADDITION:

OH Sorry for the typo and I wanted to add that I DID NOT buy the card from tracfone. I had it from a purchase at walmart $99. earlier and was waiting for due date to be up which is next week.

I just bought airtime for my Tacfone today ( 2/16/2013). None of the 2/11/2013 promo codes for 60min. worked.

Concur with Katherine; neither 54496 for 30 minutes or 28805 for 20 minutes worked. Also, it seems that every time I add minutes, my phone updates to the new totals but I get a message that says “Call Customer Care to complete this transaction.” I have called them in the past and they didn’t know why I got that message. I ignore it now and all seems OK. Any ideas for the message?

for 60 min card 54496 came up as expired. 55698 did give an added 20 min bonus on top of the normal double minutes for 140 total min. Thanks for providing this service for us.

I really don’t mind about less bonus codes since TMFL phones are out, it’s still a better deal than a dmfl with bonus code. I have 390g and like others, don’t like the pocket dial problem and even when I lock the screen, it still sometimes unlocks and pocket dials. Absolutely hate the trackball, but love the wifi/3g of it.
I’m thinking of getting the 380c and can live w/out the wifi/3g, but want to know what games/apps ppl are using/available on it. It’s been out over 2 mnths now and not 1 review or youtube video can be found for it, only ?’s and complaints on forums. I’m tired of carrying 2 tracfones(gsm&cdma) just so I can get features from gsm and coverage from cdma. When are you going to review the 380c?

Hi Brian,
I don’t have any experience with the 380c and I’m not sure if/when I might get to it. Like you, I haven’t heard much about it. It must not be very popular for some reason. In the past, I know that the “c” model phones didn’t have Java. The 380c phone description on the TracFone site doesn’t specifically mention java, so I’m not sure this one has it either.
