walmart-best-plans-make-perfect-giftsMy family is not very close…by that I mean we don’t stay close to each other. I have family all over the United States. I also have an aunt that stays in Casper, Wyoming and my Aunt Veronica stays a few hours away in Wichita, KS. With Walmart best plans I’m able to keep in touch with all of them.

As you know I’m a Walmart Family Mobile Ambassador, and I’m loving the title. The service has been amazing, and me and my Samsung Galaxy S4 are still going strong. I mention that because Thanksgiving my Aunt Veronica came to visit . I had my phone out taking photos of everyone and she asked what type of phone I had. I told her it was a Samsung Galaxy S4 and that I had Walmart Family Mobile with unlimited talk, text, and data.

She proceeded to take out this small, grainy photo, phone and told me she uses that phone because it’s affordable and cheaper than WFM (I’ll post a picture below of that grainy photo she took, you can barely decipher our faces). I asked her how much her plan is, and she told me $49.99 a month. I gasped and responded Walmart Family Mobile  is only $34.88 a month, everything is unlimited, plus you get a smartphone.

Let me rewind….

My Aunt Veronica is a funny character, she’s free spirited, witty, all about saving money, skeptical, and she doesn’t take ‘ish from anyone. When we were kids everyone (me, my brother, and my cousins that weren’t her children) always wanted to go over her house, partially because she was the youngest aunt and we could get away with all types of things, plus, she was just fun.

She let us turn her shed into a club called “Dude” and the password to get in was “Dude.” It’s contents included a glass table frame (with no glass), a log (for seating) and a raggedy toilet stool we found on the street corner.

She’d host “no particular special occasion” parties for us. One time she got us a cake with the word “COOL” written on it. We gathered around put on our black clothes, and whatever sunglasses we could find and jammed to Babyface “For The Cool In You”……This is for the Cool, Cooooocoooocoool (we’d dance just like the guys in the video).

When we got older if we wanted to run away we knew we had a safe spot to go. That is until she moved to Wichita.

Fast Forward…

After telling my aunt about Walmart Family Mobile, she looked at me sideways and said, “Niece, that sounds good, but I don’t know.”  Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you, she calls me “Niece” lol. I was her only niece for the longest time until my other aunt became the stepmother of two girls.

Well, the #HolidaysAreCalling and I thought, “Hey, I’ll get Aunt Veronica a Walmart Family Mobile plan and phone!” Heck, she did so much for us growing up, might as well surprise her with something cool  😎 .

Celebrate Your Graduate and Save Money With Walmart Family Mobile

So off to Walmart I went to find the perfect phone and plan for my aunt. Walmart has a variety of phones on rollback including:

  • Alcatel One Touch Evolve 2 – $49.88 (was $59.88)
  • ZTE ZMAX – $179.00 (was $199.88)
  • LG L90 – $119.00 (was $179.88)
  • Nokia Lumia 635 – $99.88 (was $129.88)
  • Samsung Galaxy Exhibit – $79.88 (was $99.88)
  • Nokia Lumia 530 – $49.88 (was $69.88)

But I chose the LG Optimus L90 Smartphone which was also on rollback for $119.00 (from $149.88). I know she is going to love her phone and the service. Plus, if she wanted to add another line it would only be $29.88 and it comes with 5GB of 3G Data. This higher speed bucket allows her to do even more with the plan.
