I absolutely love my job. Not just because being the owner of ADayinMotherhood.com allows me to stay home with my girls and live a fun life, but because it also allows me to help out my friends when they need it. It can be something as small as helping them to restock their movie collection with DVD’s I get to sending them on a little trip to an event that they would not go to on their own. Another perk, however, is helping them to save money with quality products that they can use when they need them. Case in point. I got a Facebook message a few weeks back that my dear friend had dropped her phone and shattered it, making it useless. To make matters worse, she and her family were preparing for a family vacation and she did not have the extra means to pay the hundreds of dollars to replace it. Her current phone company was no help and she really thought she would leave on this trip with no phone. Because I get to work with Walmart Best Plans Family Mobile and know that they have reliable service and the latest phones, I reached out and told her that I would help her replace the phone and get service for her trip.
Walmart Family Mobile service is $29.88/month (for the first line) Unlimited Talk, Text & Data service plan which includes up to 1G of 4G LTE data.
I called her up, told her to bring her account number and phone number from her other service that was not helpful at all, and took her and her littlest one directly to the Walmart Family Mobile counter. Already knowing that for only $29.88 a month I could get her unlimited data, voice and text – which is a substantial savings over her other plan – I wanted to add a really nice phone to the package as well. Since she was planning her 4th of July trip, she needed to have a phone and service that lasted for the long drive, the vacation, the drive back and year round!
We looked at the vast selection of phones and she fell in love with the sleek LG Leon. For less than $100, we had a phone with a larger screen and a ton of fun features! Adding the starter kit to get the LG Leon up and running, we asked the Walmart employee about moving her old number to the new phone. Within a few minutes, the employee was on the phone making the transaction happen. Something her other carrier said was not possible. We walked out of Walmart with a super nice phone, reliable service that I am confident will be available throughout her 4th of July trip and a smile on our faces for less than it would have cost for her to fix her old phone!
It truly is amazing how little it can cost to get everything you need with a cell phone service. I talk to people who pay hundreds of dollars a month for service that is equal to Walmart Family Mobile. I have my children’s phone through them and we have no issues when we travel. So I know that saving the money on a pay as you go, Walmart bills you AFTER the month of service, is definitely a great way o save on something that can cost so much for a family.
As the week or so since I got my friend the phone has progressed, she has excitedly sent me images of her packing, folding laundry and getting ready for her 4th of July adventure with her family! It is such a relief to me knowing she is in touch and carrying a phone with her that she can rely on as well!
There are so many advantages to my job. Helping my friends is by far the most humbling perk I get!
What are your 4th of July plans? How are you making sure everyone you love can stay in touch for less? I would love to hear about your upcoming weekend!!
