10 ways I use unlimited data


We’re a very high-tech family and love the way technology has enhanced our lives.  I’ve been working from home for the last 8 years thanks to technology!  Technology opened the doors to so many opportunities for me!  Using the latest technology can help us do the things we do well even better!  I’ve always been a savvy shopper, but the data/web service on my smartphone lets me save like a superstar! One of my favorite apps is a price matching app that lets me scan a barcode on any item, then it shows me prices at other stores.  Most stores today will price match competitors, all you have to do is show them at the register. I have saved hundreds of dollars using this app.

The Price Matching App not only saves me money, it saves me time.  I don’t have to worry that something will be less expensive in another store, I know right away and can get the same price. No more driving around, wasting gas going from store to store. Now, I just load the item in my cart and get the lowest price at the checkout!

Another thing I use my data plan for is inspiration.  I’ll look up a recipe while I’m at the store, check the ingredients and know if I need to pick up anything. Last weekend I was on a road trip and checked the weather before heading home because it was snowing where I was. Data/Web service is perfect when traveling and unfamiliar with the area, we can pull up the local restaurants and attractions, get GPS directions to guide us and even pull up the latest episode of a podcast to listen to while driving.

Having all of this at my fingertips is great, but don’t learn about data overage charges the hard way.  If you don’t have a sufficient data plan, you’ll be charged when you go over and those overage charges can be brutal.

I was in Walmart the other day and saw their Family Mobile has the Lowest Priced Unlimited Plans. It’s just $29.88* a month (on the first line) for Unlimited Talk, Text & Data/Web service which includes up to 500 MB of 4G LTE data. I was impressed!  Could not pass up a deal like that so I checked out their phones and really liked the Alcatel Fierce 2.

The Android smartphone is packed with features like 4G connection speeds, 5 inch touchscreen display and best of all no contract!  This plan saves our family big money! Given the winter we had that’s still here even though it’s spring, we just may take our savings for a quick getaway somewhere warmer!  Off to research some destinations on my new phone!  Let me know how you use your data/web service and what you think of the lowest priced unlimited plans from Walmart Family Mobile.

    Wonder if there is a catch like ads or if they throttle it

  2. I save money on data using our home wireless network. I never meet or exceed our T-Mobile plan.
