Saving Money for England with Walmart Family Mobile #MarchIntoSavings #Ad #cbias

In September 2013, I took a most amazing trip to England. I toured lots of Austenish sites and visited the beautiful cities of Bath, Winchester, and London. This fall, I'm going back and taking Lynzie with me. As you can imagine, this is going to be one spendy vacation. One of the ways I'm saving for it is by cutting costs in our family budget. Lucky for me, Walmart is all about the green this St. Patrick's Day with a great solution to a problem I inadvertently created with all my cost-cutting!

I cancelled our cell phone plans a few months ago, saving us over $200 each month. However, we were then faced with a dilemma. Jamie commutes to work each day and also works on-call shifts periodically. Communication during these times is very difficult without a mobile phone. He also used his phone for keeping track of important meetings and contacts and has been struggling to find a new organizational system that feels comfortable to him.

When I found out about the Walmart Family Mobile plan, I knew it was the perfect solution for us. 
Disclaimer: All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change. Please refer to http://cbi.as/aafid or your local Walmart for current pricing.

I chose the Alcatel Evolve 2, on rollback for $39.83 (was $59.88). In addition to the phone, I needed this $25.00 starter kit---located right next to the phones.

It's easy to get started using your phone. Once you've chosen your phone, make sure to grab a starter kit for each line of service. Then, either take the phone and starter kit to the counter to activate in-store, or purchase and bring home to activate on-line or by phone.

The Walmart Family Mobile service plan costs $29.88 per month for the first line with discounts for additional lines on the same plan. You get unlimited talk, text & data, including up to 500MB of 4G LTE data.

Jamie is thrilled with our new phone and I'm glad we can solve our problem at a price that is manageable. Now, back to planning for England. I wonder if he's got anything great in the garage I can sell...?


  1. Wow - $200 per month?! WFM is definitely a great savings. Enjoy your trip. Got any room in your luggage for me?!

  2. Dwayne and I may see you there! We are planning on going on one of Jennie's tours this year but aren't sure which one it will be yet. Can't wait! :) Love seeing this pictures of you in England! Miss you!

  3. I'm very interested in your posts about planning a trip to England. Thanks for this tip - and I look forward to your future posts. My husband and I want to go within the next couple of years. I recently read the book Falling in love with the English countryside by Susan Branch, and it lit my fire to make that trip. So please share more - especially hot to find the cheapest fares, hotels, etc.

  4. What a great compromise! Still saving money but being able to check in if needed. #client
