I recently changed plans on my regular phone to be under the company’s plan, but it feels funny mixing personal business with my Full-Time job. I’m trying to save more, but since it is tax season, I have some extra cash coming in. During one of our recent family road trips, I went to Walmart to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Core Prime. Since I wasn’t an existing customer, I also had to buy the “Starter Kit” with Sim card for $25. When choosing a plan, decided to get the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan; it includes unlimited talk, text, and data (with up 10GB of 4G LTE data) for only $49.88. It also came with a $7 value free movie every month for Walmart’s video movie service VUDU, that I can use to stream movies through my Chromecast for movie nights.

A benefit of my profession and being a lifestyle blogger is the ability to work anywhere as long as there is a reliable internet connection. The Samsung Galaxy Core Prime has apps I can use for blog productivity like memos, email, messaging and Google drive. I also can download free or pay for apps through their store. With this new phone and 10GB of data, I can:

  • Stay connected with friends and family while I’m on vacation or working remotely
  • Keep my blog and work business separate
  • Use it for social media management on Instagram, FacebookTwitter and emails

Walmart Family Mobile is also on T-Mobile’s Nationwide Network. Since I travel so much, I know I will get good coverage when traveling in the US. If you want a good quality phone for yourself with no credit check or hidden fees, see if the Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan works for you. You can also speak with a representative in your local Walmart’s electronics section for more information.

    This sounds like a great plan to have if you want to keep your personal phone separate from your personal one – which is such a great idea in itself! #client

    This sounds like a great deal for families with older kids that need to stay connected. Cell phone plans for families can get expensive, I’m glad to hear that there are other options

      I have Verizon, so the quality is better, but AT&T and Verizon was my job’s only options. TMobile’s service isn’t bad and like most services, after a certain amount of data is used, it does slow down.

    Love how more mobile companies are offering better flexibility. This sounds like a great option that won’t break the bank.

    This sounds cool. Sounds good for an extra phone or those in school. I am not sure what I am going to do with the extra money.

    Wow! I didn’t realize Walmart had an actual set of phone plans. This IS a really great way to manage data and phone calls in an inexpensive manner. I will be going into full-time entrepreneurship soon, so will definitely look into this.

      I used it for getting my dad a phone too, but it’s definitely a good option for a tween or teen

    I haven’t thought about Walmart for my mobile plan. This sounds like a good option to explore in the future.
