Since 5/17 a few people at Fat Wallet are reporting using promo code 58906 with a 60 minute TRACFONE airtime purchase and receiving a bonus of 200 minutes. REPORTS INDICATE IT ONLY SEEMS TO WORK WHEN YOU PURCHASE DIRECTLY FROM TRACFONE - ON THEIR WEB SITE. This code should give only 30 minutes, so 200 would seem to be a glitch. Reports are that the code may only be good 5/15 - 31.
Reports are sparce, so at this time - TRY IT AT YOUR OWN RISK.
It worked for me! I used that code via their website. Maybe they have noticed the glitch and are shutting it off...
Hi guys! I used it 3 times just to test it out. It works better without getting supersized. I have also noticed through reviews that older phones may or may not work for this promo. Just a trend I have been seeing.
For me it gave a total of 400 minutes. It is probably because I am a Safelink customer but YMMV. Can't beat 5 cents per minute!!
CODE WORKS!!! as of May 19, 2011 @ 12:00~ish AM -8 GMT/Pacific Time Zone
Here's a lil' snapshot of the receipt.
Decided to bite the bullet and see if it works, and it works for me. So it comes down to 7 cents per minute and 3 cents per text message, can't get any cheaper than that from tracfone I think. I used it on an LG500G phone.
A day has passed and still everyone who received the 200 bonus PURCHASED ONLINE DIRECTLY FROM TRACFONE SITE. There are NO reports of receiving the 200 bonus any other way.
I'm not trying to rub it in, I just want to inform people, especially Safelink customers, on what might happen but of course YMMV. I also wanna see if this has happened to other Safelink customers?
Cherry33778; Are you positive you actually received a total of 400 or was it 360? The 40 bonus minutes should not have doubled since they were not paid for minutes [60 + (40+60+200) = 360]. Look at the confirmation message in your inbox for the breakdown of total minutes shown in the text.

Gee, how come Cherry got 400 minutes, I only got 320.
How long will it take Trac to figure this out. They probably read the forums
trying to come up with better signature.......
I got 320. May 19, 2011.
I've never done this on website before. Why the taxes?
In my state there is no sales tax. I just go to K/Walymart and pay $19.99.
Works great. I never buy from Trac directly but 6.87 cents per minute is tough to beat. Thanks for the tip!
Several people have confirmed that you can use the code many times. You may have to clear your browser or change browsers or use another PC. It is not limiting by Phone number or IMEI.
It APPEARS (not confirmed yet) there are only two results, the code is refused or you get the 200 minutes, so you don`t have to worry about receiving some low amount of bonus rather than the 200.
MUST PURCHASE DIRECTLY OFF TRACFONE WEBSITE.
