June 7, 2008 20:43 - I'm Back! 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!!

Has it really been a year since I've last posted to my TracFone blog? My how time flies!

I didn't MEAN to take a year off from blogging, honest! It just kind of happened. You take a week off, and the next thing you know the week turns into a month, and the month turns into a year, and there you go...

But I'm back now, with a renewed vision for Fone-Review, and a renewed commitment to make a blog entry every week or so, and I'll make a special effort to keep the blog up-to-date on any new money-saving TracFone or Net10 promo codes that I find.

I do apologize for my prolonged absence from the blogosphere, and I promise to do better this time.

June 7, 2008 21:09 - TracFone Promotional Code 52057

I received an email the other day about TracFone promo code 52057 which you can use on a one year card, and it will give you a total of 600 minutes.

The TracFone one year cards normally come with 400 minutes, so this promo code gives a nice bonus of 200 minutes. The catch is that it expires June 10, 2008, so you'd better hurry!

You can click here to go the TracFone Website to use this promo code.

June 7, 2008 21:23 - TracFone Promo Code 50704

I noticed on the TracFone website that promo code 50704 gives you 200 bonus minutes on the 1 year double minutes card. This card normally gives you 600 minutes, so you'll get a total of 800 minutes using the promo code. This one also expires June 10, 2008, so you'd better hurry!

June 16, 2008 11:45 - Free Shipping on TracFone Phones

The TracFone website is currently offering free 3-day ground shipping on any TracFone phone or phone/airtime bundle valued at $35 or greater. They are not listing an expiration date for this offer, so I don't have any idea how long they are going to run it.

The ground shipping usually costs about $5 or $6 dollars, so this free shipping deal is a nice little discount.

Also note that it typically takes them a couple of days to process your order, so even though the shipping is 3-day ground, you can expect it to take 5 or 6 days for the phone to actually arrive.

June 17, 2008 12:05 - Sale on TracFone Motorola W370 with Double Minutes For Life

The TracFone Website currently has the Motorola W370 on sale for $29.99, and it includes the double minutes for life (DMFL) feature. Basically, DMFL means just what it says. Every time you add minutes to the phone, they are doubled, no promo code needed. It's a nice feature if you're a "talker" and use your phone quite a bit.

The phone in this offer is refurbished, which may or may not be an issue for you. Personally, I have ordered several reconditioned TracFones in the past and never had a problem.

Also, this offer is good "while supplies last," so there's no telling when it might disappear.

June 21, 2008 12:53 - Double Minutes for Life on the TracFone Motorola W376g

The TracFone website is now offering Double Minutes for Life (DMFL) for free on the new TracFone Motorola W376g. The W376g is the first bluetooth-enabled TracFone, so it should be a hit in California, where a new law requires hands-free cell phone use when driving. The W376g is a sleek flip phone with a VGA camera and downloadable ringtones, and would have to be considered the current top of the line for TracFone.

The phone sells for $49.99, which is a nice bargain, especially since the DMFL sells for $49.99 if you want to add it to an existing phone.

June 21, 2008 13:11 - California Hands-Free Wireless Law in Effect July 1, 2008

If you live in California, or plan on visiting, you should be aware of the new California Hands-Free Wireless law that takes effect July 1, 2008.

Basically, if you are under 18, you can't use a cell phone while driving. Period. If you are 18 or older, you must use a hands-free device. The funny thing is that the law allows you to dial your phone or send a text message while driving, but you can't talk. That's government logic for you.

Anyway, currently the only TracFone that will work with a bluetooth headset is the Motorola W376g, but pretty much any TracFone will work with a wired headset.

In preparation for the upcoming law, CellPhoneShop is running a sale on bluetooth accesories. Drive safe!


BlueTooth 80% off.

June 23, 2008 19:41 - Washington Hand-Free Cellular Law

A blog reader alerted me to the fact that Washington state is also implementing a hands-free cellular law effective July 1st, 2008. Unlike California's law, however, Washington also bans text messaging while driving.

According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, The Virgin Islands, and The District of Columbia also have hands-free cellular laws. The tricky part is that these laws apply to anyone who drives, not just residents. So even if your state doesn't have such a law, you can be ticketed in one of these states if you drive with your cell phone to your ear.

The moral of the story is that you should either pay very close attention to the cell phone laws of any states you visit, or just get in the habit of going hands-free whenever you drive and talk.

CellPhoneShop.net has a wide selection of cellular accessories, includindg hands-free devices, and the coupon code below gets you a 12% discount on any order of $12 or more.

12% coupon code: CPS812. Mini Purchase: $12.00 Exp: July 15, 08

June 26, 2008 19:29 - TracFone LG225 + Double Minutes Sale Ends June 30th

TracFone has been running a sale since Mother's Day where you can get the LG225 camera flip phone, plus the Double Minutes For Life (DMFL) feature, plus a free accessory kit, plus free shipping all for $49.99. It's been one of their best sellers since they've been running this special deal, but I received an email today that they are ending this offer on June 30th.

You can click on the graphic below for more details.

They are also offering what they are calling the Ultimate Bundle on the TracFone LG225 where you get the phone, plus a one-year airtime card, plus the DMFL on the phone plus free shipping, all for $99.99. The airtime card has 400 minutes, so after doubling you will get 800 minutes of airtime plus one year of service. This bundle saves you around $100 over purchasing everything separately, and it's good "while supplies last."

June 27, 2008 20:58 - 450 Minute TracFone Airtime Card Limited Time Offer

I received a TracFone Insider email today about a 450 minute TracFone airtime card that sells for $79.99, but the offer expires June 29th. TacFone runs specials like this from time to time, and I think these offers are just marketing tests to see what kind of response they get.

If you talk on your TracFone a lot, this card is a good deal, but it becomes a great deal if you have the Double Minutes For Life (DMFL) on your phone. Doubling this card will give you 900 minutes for the same $79.99, and by my math that comes out to less than 9 cents per minute. That's some cheap talk time!

How about this: make your own combo deal with the $79.99 450 minute card + the $29.99 Motorolo W370 flip phone with DMFL. For $110 you'd get a nice flip phone with 900 minutes. Actually, you'd get 920 minutes becuase you get 20 free minutes with any new or refurb TracFone if you activate online.

But wait there's more! TracFone Promo Code 54912 gives 50 bonus minutes when adding a 200 minutes card or greater in the month of June. Last time I checked 450 is greather than 200 and it's still June, so our custom combo deal has now become 970 minutes plus a nice flip phone all for $110. Not a bad deal!

June 28, 2008 20:00 - TracFone Promo Code 57887 For 20 Free Minutes on 120 Minute Card

I came across this one on the internet yesterday. TracFone Promo Code 57887 gives 20 free airtime minutes on a 120 minute card. Expiration date is unknown.

As I talk about on my TracFone Promotional codes page, this one is a good example of why you always want to add airtime on the TracFone website, not directly on your phone, when using a promo code. This code could stop working at any time, and if you add the airtime directly on your phone using the Rapid Refill feature, you don't get a second chance to try a different promo code if the one you used was invalid.

June 28, 2008 20:21 - TracFone Promo Code 50722 For 60 Free Minutes on a 60 Minute Card

This one was reported to be still working as of 6/25/08, but there's no reported expiration date. It's a nice deal if it works for you. Get 60 free minutes on a 60 minute airtime card with TracFone Promo Code 50722.

Sometimes you'll see one like this reported to be working for someone else, but it won't work for you. I think that sometimes TracFone releases airtime codes for certain geographical areas as marketing tests. Also, if you've used a promo code on your phone in the past, it typically won't work again.

As always, be sure to check out my TracFone Promotional codes page for important tips you need to know before using promo codes.
