In addition to what Scott said, note that you do not need to wait until that 30, 60, or 90 card runs out to add more days or minutes. You can add them any time, and the totals and service date will automatically adjust. My current Tracfone service end date is in June of 2019. When I see a good deal on minutes cards, I grab them. When it's an online deal, sometimes all you get is an emailed code, so I add them right away so the code won't get misplaced and I can be sure it's valid.

Good point Dutch, thanks for mentioning.  Where do you find the best prices on Tracfone cards?  So far Ebay seems to have some mass sellers that knock a few dollars off (a $100 card for $99, that might otherwise cost $105 from Tracfone with taxes and fees) but I'm interested in any other tips you might have from the way you buy refills.

Yep, I usually find the best deals on eBay, Scott, although sometimes HSN, Best Buy, etc., have phone/minutes deals at a price where you can sell or give away the phone and just keep the minutes. Those deals are getting harder to find though, since Tracfone started clamping down on third-party package deals. The key for me though, is to grab the deals when I see them, instead of waiting until I need them.

Next time you find one too good to pass up, share it here!  :)

Will do! Unless it's tagged as only one left... ;)
