When I got my first cell phone 9 years ago, I was afraid of getting a phone with a contract because they were just so darned expensive. I went with a prepaid phone with maybe only 250 minutes per month for $25. That was perfect for me because I don’t really use it that much. I only use it when I’m traveling or on the bike trail. That old phone is long dead and I’ve been looking for a new one.
Straight talk has phones with everything you need such as the “All You Need Plan” with 1000 minutes, 1000 texts and 30mb of data for only $30/mo. They also have unlimited plans for only $45 a month with calls, pictures, text, web and messaging.. That is a huge savings if you are currently paying $75 to $100 per month. I love that I would feel richer with those savings. What would you buy with the money you are saving? I think I would be buying more groceries, then again I might buy some music or books, who knows.
Straight Talk has an international option for only $5 more so you can call a friend in Mexico, Germany, England or anywhere you need to call. I see people buying these phone cards from the store on the corner for Mexico and I just think they are wasting their money. They can just get one of these prepaid cell phones and call their family for only an additional $5 with their international plan.
Scott Canterbury talks about Straight Talk in this YouTube video hook, line and sinker. He talks about how much money he is saving each month and as a family he’d be saving much more. Watch and see. It’s just such a good plan to go with, I don’t know why anyone wouldn’t want to. They even have refurbished cell phones for as low as $10 with a camera, mp3 player, web and blue tooth. They even have smart phones with touch screen, apps, maps etc. There are no activation fees, contracts or credit checks. You can’t beat that in a cell phone. So watch the videos (links) and save some money for crying out loud.
