I distinctly remember my first experience with a cell phone. I was 18 and I was about to leave for college. My dad — a technology lover through and through — was insisting that I take my mom’s cell phone with me. It was a big clunky thing that looked more like a portable house phone looks today. And I wanted nothing to do with it.

My dad certainly had good intentions. Calls were free after 9 pm and I could call home for free and not have to worry about a campus phone bill. Yay for saving money! But, I was so nervous that I’d be the only kid in my dorm with a cell phone and since being different was not an option, I didn’t end up taking the phone. Three days after I moved into my dorm, I saw a girl sitting outside her dorm room talking to her parents on her cell phone.

I quickly realized that my dad was right–a cell phone was a great way to not only communicate, but to also save money if you have the right plan. Luckily for us, plans have come a long way since the days of “free after 9pm and free weekends”. If you want to save money on your mobile phone bill, check out Walmart’s NEW Family Mobile Plan. For just $29.98 a month, Walmart Family Mobile’s NEW 4G LTE service provides an Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan which includes up to 500MB of 4G LTE data! For similar service, other providers are charging $80-$90 a month. Walmart is all about the green–and keeping it in your pocket!

4G LTE is designed to provide up to 10x the speeds of 3G networks for mobile devices! So not only are you marching into savings this March, but you’ll also be browsing the web with amazing speed, which will save you time. And, time is money, right?

Yesterday we celebrated all things green on St. Patrick’s day, and we know Walmart is all about the green. Think of all the fun stuff you can do with all the green you’ll be saving when you make the switch to Walmart Family Mobile! Summer is right around the corner and there are plenty of things to save up for: vacations, day trips, new outside toys for the kids, memberships to the town pool…the possibilities are endless!

In our house, we’re using our Alcatel Evolve 2 and Walmart Family Mobile plan to stream the kids’ favorite shows, play games and take goofy pictures and videos of ourselves.   Gia can work pretty much any phone with the greatest of ease, and loves that the Evolve 2 is “her phone” for doing everything from watching the videos we’ve taken to playing educational apps I’ve downloaded for her. Even Nicholas gets in on the action– little mister has a mean swiping technique and can even touch the play button so he can watch his favorite videos (of himself, of course).

Walmart Family Mobile’s affordable plans and great phones fit so well into our life. What mom doesn’t love saving money but not sacrificing service and quality? Walmart truly is all about saving the green!

    I am not a fan of WalMart, but this does look like a good tool. I wonder what the coverage is like and if it is travel friendly.

      Holly–the service is provided by TMobile so we have great coverage. In fact my husband didn’t switch and often I’ll get service with our Walmart Family Mobile phone when he doesn’t get service with his phone. I’m very pleased with the service so far!

    I’ve looked into this and it is a great deal. It’s perfect for when my kids get a bit older and need phones of their own.

    What a great deal! I think this is better than the plan we’re on, but unfortunately we’re on one from my husband’s company. I know a lot of people that can benefit from this! Sharing!
