    Upsell ?

    Using the Tracfone app on my phone I see a plan called UPSELL but no description of what it is. Does anyone know? Could this be the one year service plan?

    I haven't looked at the app lately. But around January 2017, there was an UPSELL option which TF was selling 400-minute card for $20, probably a goof. I snapped up 3 of them before they pulled that option.

    It appears only on the TMFL phone.
    It's probably a glitch, but will be keeping an eye on it.

    OK, to close this out I bought the UPSELL $49.99 and received one year of service. No date/minutes/texts as expected.

    So you didn't have to use the "trick" of adding a card first for the 1-year offer to show up, like on the web site?

    They probably throw that option out there if the quarterly revs are looking a little light...

    Mine at first only showed Add Ons and Smartphone plans, then re-entering the app it has the whole list including UPSELL.

    I did the same and should have bought more. Lasted about a week.

    I was gonna go back an buy a few more as well, but thought they might claw all that back so I just stuck with purchasing one.
    Unlike many TF Inc. Subs in recent weeks and now months, TF Inc. not showing much love to their TF service customers.

    Yes, there was a fear at that time that having very large amounts of minutes would get you in trouble with the Fraud Dept. Most people back then had TMFL, so the total time from those 400 minute cards really added up.

    Same here. A couple of hrs ago my Smartphone only phone did not show the "Upsell" option or paygo plans, now it shows both. Go figa.

    That late January, early February 2017 glitch was with the 400 minutes by itself, no days. I thought the price was $25, because the total was $29.12. And most phones being TMFL, tripled the 400 into each of the three buckets.

    You're correct on all counts. I just looked at my log. I paid $28.02 for each one ($25 + tax & fees). I added 3 cards, got 3600/3600/3600 and no additional service days. Since my service end date was already out to 2025, that wasn't a big deal.
