    NEW 200 minute Promo Code (GLITCH ?)

    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!!

    A Safelink phone is a Tracfone with a "special Safelink" monthly Value Plan attached. It should have no effect on your bonus minutes.

    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.

    Actually it does, according to the terms and conditions Safelink customers receive an extra 40 minutes when buying a 60 min card making our total minutes 100, or 160 with dmfl since the extra minutes don't double. With this code, that I have used numerously, even if you minus the 160 I still am getting an extra 40 minutes on top of what everyone else gets, 400-160=240. At first I thought it was a glitch that I got more but after doing it 3 times I can confirm it is not.

    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?

    You have better memory recall than I. Because now that you mention it, I do remember reading about the bonuses. I will mention again for anyone reading this that it is SUSPRISENLY EASY TO QUALIFY FOR SAFELINK and you are able to quickly up grade your phone while on this program. For those interested here are the SL T&C:
    https://www.safelinkwireless.com/Saf...rms_conditions

    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.

    I did it 3 times, four altogether, and the last 3 were exactly the same, 400 minutes. Take a look:

    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.
