    The promo codes come and go. The Tracfone cards are:

    Price Nominal Nominal Price with Triple minutes deal.
    $199.99 1500 Minutes 13.33 Cents per Minute 4.444 Cents per Minute
    $159.99 1000 Minutes 15.99 Cents per Minute 5.33
    $119.99 800 Minutes 14.99 Cents per Minute 4.99
    $ 99.99 400 Minutes 24.9975 Cents per Minute 8.332
    $ 79.99 450 Minutes 17.77555 Cents per Minute 5.925
    $ 39.99 200 Minutes 19.995 Cents per Minute 6.665
    ====================================
    $ 29.99 120 Minutes 24.99166 Cents per Minute 8.331
    ====================================
    $ 19.99 60 Minutes 33.31666 Cents per Minute 11.106
    $ 9.99 30 Minutes 33.3 Cents per Minute 11.100

    How about that - the thread software corrupts a table !

    The 60 free minutes in the $29.99 deal (highlighted) reduce the per minute rate
    to 7.16 cents per minute.

    800 minute card? I haven't seen one of those.
    Unless you are talking about the 400min+1yr card that adds DMFL to the phone.
    It's marketed as 800 min, but read the fine print and you'll see that the minutes are already doubled.
    So it's a complete waste for a phone with DMFL or TMFL.

    The 400min card includes 1yr of service which bumps the price up a bit.
    The year of service on the 1000 and 1500min cards doesn't affect them as much.


    How about that - the thread software corrupts a table !

    Saw that the other day. Edit the post and remover the width part of the TABLE tag and it works
    Code:
    [TABLE="width: 500"]
    Becomes
    Code:
    [TABLE]
    and it works correctly

    $199.99 1500 Minutes
    $159.99 1000 Minutes
    $99.99 400 Minutes


    Don't know why the software puts that extra in there. The web master here should be able to fix it, but probably won't.

    Those are the nominal prices, but I never pay retail. Callingmart.com gives a discount and doesn't charge tax. And you can search eBay and Amazon for cheaper prices (often a bundle with a card will be cheaper than the card itself).

    Yes, you could interpret that as 400 minutes and DMFL.

    If you add that to a phone that has DMFL already, you only get 800 minutes.

    Not sure about a TMFL phone. If I sign in and select buy airtime for one of my TMFL phones that card is not listed. They probably won't let you buy/add it to a TMFL phone.
