Well i may be behind the times, but why should I pay $30.00 for 100

minutes
of tracfone service when I can buy a new phone for $20.00 and refer myself
so both phones get a free 100 minutes. Light dawns on my marblehead...



JoshIII adds:
You can get a refurbished TracFone free with the purchase of a $20 (60
minute) airtime card on the www.tracfone.com website (+ $5 shipping&tax).

Refer yourself (before activation of the 2nd phone) and get 100 free minutes
on both TracFones.

Activate the refurbished phone on the web and for an additional 20 free
minutes.

Wait a month, deactivate the 2nd TracFone, transfer the minutes to your
first TracFone, and sell the second.

So for $25 you get 20+100+100+60 = 280 minutes and a free refurbished
phone that you can sell on ebay for $10

You must transfer all the minutes from one phone to another. The empty phone
is then deactivated.

You could re-activate it again by buying some more minutes.

When do the minutes expire? 60 days? 90 days?

Minutes never expire on a TracFone, unless you fail
to add airtime (card or PIN) before your "due date".

The "due date" is always shown in the display of
every TracFone. No other prepaid phone that I
know of offers this feature.

Note: You must add more minutes before your due
date whether you are out of minutes or not to
keep your TracFone activated.

Which part of that is not "expiring"?

The minutes never expire, as compared with some other companies where unused
minutes disappear at the end of the month even though you are still a
customer.
With Tracfone, as long as you are a current customer, the minutes do not
evaporate.

Name a SINGLE prepaid cellphone service that does not roll over unused
minutes exactly the same as Tracfone.

I didn't think so.

Yes, the problem exists mostly with the postpaid services.

Yes, when you stop paying for your phone, the service stops.

But you still keep on shilling, don't you?

Exactly. What's the due date? 60 days from the time the minutes are
added to the phone? 90 days? A year?
