Add 1 Year of Service to Your Tracfone Account

Did you know you can add 365 service days to your tracfone account? Well you can. Any time you minutes online, Tracfone offers you the option to add 1 year of service days for $49.99. As far as I can tell from looking on is that the only offer this option when you add a refill card. But this does make for some interesting options.

Using Up Your Roll Over Minutes
Many long time Tracfone customers are carrying over 1000s roll over minutes, texts, and MBs of data. You can keep your minutes as long as your account is active so many people keep buying more minutes each year. But if you buy the least expensive service plan, say a $15 30 smartphone plan you can keep you service active for another year for $65. Not a bad deal as this could lower your overall yearly cost.

Low Cost Yearly Phone Service, Add Data as Needed
Buying a $15 smartphone plan and adding the $50 year of service is a an inexpensive way to keep your phone active. For $65, you have an active phone number with 200 minutes of talk, 500 text messages, and 200MB of data. While that is not a lot of service, you’ll be able to add 1GB of data for $10 and 1000 text messages for $5. That data and those text messages will rollover indefinitely as long as your account is activ. If you don’t spend much time on the phone, this could be a nice plan especially since you can add data as needed.

    If you dont need minutes/data/texts because you have so many already, add a refill option to your cart. Then go to your cart, select the 365-day airtime only plan for $49.99. Then, if you scroll up to your order, click the trashcan next to the refill plan. And, wala… only have the 365-day service days only option in your cart 🙂

        Does this work for smart phone plans? It is exactly what I need, but I do not see any options for “add service days only” at check out. 🙁 Please advise!

          Yes. it works. when I add a $15 plan to my cart the 365 Extra Service Days $49.99 option is under MORE FOR YOUR PHONE. If you don’t need the service plan, you can then remove it from the cart after adding the service days.

    As you say, I only found this offer as an option at checkout when I went to add a refill card. I also found that I could cancel the purchase of the refill card during checkout and still buy the 365 day service plan for $50; a good deal for me since I have rolled over more air time than I ever purchased on a single card and over 1.2 GB of data.
