Tech My Money is always an advocate for any service, product or gadget that will save our readers some hard-earned cash. These savings advice and tips also applies to us, and I don’t hesitate to tell my friends, family, and strangers who want a plan that gives them great value for their dollar to switch to Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan, it comes with Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data (*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G) plus a free VUDU movie credit every month ($7 value) per line for $49.88. For those of you who use the VUDU movie streaming service, the free monthly movie credit has a $7 value, same as a new release rental, now that’s what I call mega savings.
Before our sons arrived, getting some extra disposable income during Tax Time was quickly spent paying off bills, movie nights and some household shopping we didn’t need. Also, before our switch to Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan, we spent the extra income that trickled in after filing our taxes updating our existing gadgets, smartphones too. They say maturity comes with age, I can say for a fact that, this has been the case for my wife and I. We no longer have the “I must have or upgrade to the latest smartphone” mentality when our old devices are still in perfect working condition. In the John-A’s household, we set a goal for the new year and make plans on what or where we would like to invest or spend the extra income we get from our Tax return. This includes savings we earn from using services like the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan. We have two boys now and we are expecting a new baby sometime this year, so we’ve planned to spend our extra income stocking up on diapers and baby wipes. Yes, I said it, “baby wipes and diapers!” Anyone who has two boys under 2 years old will tell you how many boxes of those get used in a month, now multiply that by 12.
Our Tax return income isn’t all we plan to spend stocking up on diapers and wipes this year. Extra earnings from leaving our old mobile plan that had our bill looking like car notes for a luxury car and savings from cutting down on all the money guzzling extras in our lives last year will be used too. Before we knew Walmart had the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan, I’m so ashamed to put up the amount we’ve had to pay on phone bills for years all in the name of being able to upgrade to the latest smartphones when they launched in stores. Before our switch to Walmart Family Mobile I used to pay close to $600 for myself and 4 other family members, let’s not forget the extra charges for surpassing our data limit. Now we pay a fraction of that for Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data on a 4G LTE network (*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G) and a free movie on VUDU every month ($7 value) (in our case, it’s 5 free movies because we have 5 lines).
With Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan you get Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data (*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G) plus a free VUDU movie credit every month ($7 value) per line for $49.88 with no strings attached. If your smartphone bills scare the crap out of you whenever it’s due, you too can part ways with our old service provider and give the Walmart Family Mobile service a try. Since Walmart Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pick a phone of your choice from the vast collection of affordable smartphones or you can bring your own device, and get your SIM Kit for only $19.88. You can get some really cool Android and Windows Phone devices from the Walmart Family Mobile service at an amazing price without having to break the bank. A smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy On5 will set you back $69 on rollback price(Regular price was: $119.00). My wife just changed to Samsung Galaxy On5, the smartphone has an amazing spec (5″ HD Display, 5MP Camera with flash, and a Quad-Core 1.3 GHz Processor) for its price range and it’s 4g LTE capable.

I think diapers/wipes are a great way to spend some of the remaining tax dollars! Not as exciting as some things, but a very smart thing to stock up on! #client
Great idea Stephanie!
