Tracfone Discontinued $50 One Year Service Days Add On

In January 2019 I heave from a few of my readers that they no longer buy the $50 Tracfone One Year (365 days) Service. I added one to my account last September and so I know it was still available last September. so I checked both the my account of and in Tracfone’s My Account App on my phone and yes indeed the option was no longer there.

For those of you unfamiliar with this service add-on. Tracfone used to offer the option to add an additional 365 service days to your account for $50. This add on did not include any minutes, MBs of data, or texts, just service days. I loved this add-on for two reasons and I wrote about them in the past. First, many people have a huge balance of unused minutes on Tracfone and that balance keeps increasing because people would buy additional plans with minutes to get service days. See Add 1 Year of Service to Your Tracfone Account. Second, it was a great for people who want to use an iPhone or Android phone who only occasionally need phone service.

    Thanks for posting this. That’s a bummer. Too bad I didn’t renew it back in December, but who knew? I appreciate knowing that it’s not just that I couldn’t find that item on the Tracfone site.

      Yea. I miss this option. Apparently some people with basic Tracfone phones still are able to get this add on.

        I also just tried to add it for my son’s smartphone. Although it was not an option, I chose the lowest service card available and then upon check-out, I was allowed to also purchase the $49 card, which added 365 days in addition to the 30 days. So, 395 service days, 1gb data, 1000 texts for $75 with all fees.

          Glad you got it. The option is missing from three different accounts I manage for family. By the way did you know, that once you are in the cart you can add the extra days at the bottom and then delete the plan from the cart so that you only pay for the service days add on…

    Hi – FYI – the $50 1-yr service only option is still available on tracfone online (i just got it for my phone today) but it looks like it’s only for tracfone original phones (not a BYOB) – My android galaxy luna had the offer but my BYOP iphone did not

      Hi KL,
      Cool. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share that. I no longer have any tracfone phone active so I can’t see that from my account.
