June 2, 2007 08:41 - TracFone prepaid cell phones good for teenagers br>
Be sure to click here to visit my new and improved TracFone blog for the latest TracFone promo codes! I'm leaving these pages here for historical purposes, but I'll be making all new posts on my new blog. Thanks!!

A recent article in the Bellingham (Washington) Herald considered what teenagers need in a cell phone plan. It outlined steps families should take when considering a provider that offers a two-year contract, like choosing a carrier with good coverage in the area, deciding how many minutes per month are needed, and choosing a phone with the extras you want, without making your monthly bill huge.

The article's main suggestion, however, is to purchase a TracFone for a teen's first cell phone. It says:

"If you decided you had to have a cell phone, the safest and most economical choice for parents and a teenager paying their own bills is a TracFone. TracFones have a known expense, a known number of minutes, and have no monthly bills to pay with hidden taxes and charges. It is a great way to test the need for a cell phone without having to sign a two-year contract."

I might add that giving a teen a phone with a limited number of minutes is a great way to teach him or her self-disclipline. When the minutes are gone, they are gone. It puts a more tangible limit on the amount of gabbing a young person can do on the phone.

June 4, 2007 20:25 - Free Shipping on TracFones for Father's Day

Since TracFone honored mother's with free shipping, it's only fitting that the do the same for fathers. From now through June 14th, TracFone is offering free shipping on all orders placed through the TracFone Online Store.

What's interesting, however, is that this speciall offer is not really publicized on their website. I only knew about it because of an email I received from them, but I placed an order tonight, and it did indeed give me free shipping.

My order was for the "two-fer" offer where you get two 60-minute airtime cards and a reconditioned phone for $19.99. This is an awesome deal just for the airtime, and the free shipping makes it even sweeter!

Last I heard, promo codes 51283 (60 free minutes) and 57676 (30 extra service days) still work with 60-minute cards, so be sure to use them if you go-fer the two-fer!

June 5, 2007 19:32 - Free TracFone Accessory Kit

I forgot to mention yesterday, that TracFone is also offering a free universal accessory kit for any orders that include a phone (or phone-airtime package) that is priced at $29.99 or more. It's not enough that your order is for $29.99 or more, it's that one of the phones in the order has to meet that price level.

The accessory kit includes a car charger apapter, a hands-free headset, and a pouch for the phone. The kit is valued at $19.99, so this is a pretty nice special they are running. Especially when you get free shipping too!

Like the free shipping offer, the free accessory kit offer ends on June 14th, 2007.
