My husband and I recently done out taxes and as stressful as doing taxes might be, it’s totally worth it when the refund comes through, we treat the kids, treat ourselves and usually upgrade a few of our devices.

I have been struggling with my current data plan, my son always wants to use my phone to talk to our relatives, play games on it and watch his favorite movies, he pretty much uses up all my data when it renews and it’s not really convenient on my end since I need my all the data I can get, especially for tweeting about events and staying on top of things!

I recently learned about the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan and just at the right time! It has unlimited talk, text and data which is perfect for myself and the kiddos, that means they can talk to their grandparents on video for as long as they want (or until their grandparents fall asleep).  Not only does the plan have unlimited everything, you can also download a free movie on VUDU each month.  My son has already watched Alvin and the Chipmunks, it’s one of his favorites.


My neighbors have the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan and they have been raving about it for a while so as soon as our tax return came through, the first thing I did was head over to Walmart to check out the phones and learn a little more about the service.  My neighbors also travel for work on a weekly basis and have excellent coverage wherever they go.  We need another phone desperately and with us getting out tax return through, this was the perfect time to check out the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan.

When I arrived at my local Walmart, I headed over to the entertainment section which is where the Walmart Family Mobile Plus section is and I took a look at all the phones.  There were lots of options, different sizes and different prices.  It’s important to think about what you need in a phone before choosing one.

I wanted one with a large screen so my kids can watch movies on it and see their grandparents clearly on video.  I also wanted a larger screen so I can blog and post to social media clearly whilst on the go, that’s a pretty important factor for me when choosing a phone.

Fortunately all of the phones had clear, big bright screens so it was easy to work out which one I wanted, I ended up going with the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime, it’s the perfect size for us to watch movies on and has a clear bright screen for me to blog on the go and post to my social media accounts. It was also just the right price at $79.92 on a rollback from $99.92 and a pretty good deal if I must say!


I also picked up a starter kit for $25, it includes the sim card needed to set up the phone and you just pop it in when you are setting up your phone and battery, it’s simple and easy!

Once I got home, I called and set up the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan, it’s $49.88 month and includes 10GB of 4G LTE, it has unlimited talk, text and data, plus a free movie on VUDU every month, a $7 Value!  VUDU can be watched on many different types of devices so this is pretty convenient for us too since we just added a ROKU to my sons television in his room!

I have to say, I am super happy that with my new phone, the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan is a great deal, it is helping us all stay connected, I can update my social media on a clear bright screen and I don’t have to worry about running out of data!

If you want to maximize your tax refund this year then head over to Walmart and take advantage of the great prices of the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan!
