    Tracfone (Buy Now) Question

    I was wondering about the cost of minutes purchased through the Buy Now option. I usually buy the air time cards and was wondering if their Buy Now prices for minutes are the same price or not?

    EDIT: Nevermind I found the info finally. Sorry for making the thread for no reason. You can delete if you want.

    It would have been nice if you would have posted the information you have found (or a link to it). This way, your post would not be completely useless (which it right now is, I have to agree with you on that ).

    That's one of the dumbest lies I've ever heard. No, the minutes do double. If they are not doubling, you have a problem. If the regular cs doesn't fix the problem, you can call the Executive Resolutions department.

    Agreed. The minutes in the value plan DO double if you have a DMFL phone. This is also explicitly stated on the Tracfone FAQ for the value plans.

    A prime example of the knowledge of the average TF CSRs. Makes you wonder if these people sleep in a cardboard box in an alley every night.

    Bonus minutes do not double but minutes that you purchase do, indeed, double.

    I'd try another CSR before doing anything else.
