    Tracfone promo codes not working lately

    Hi all. I have entered supposedly good Tracfone promo codes for data purchases, etc. several times in the past few weeks on multiple phones and I have not received the bonuses. Tracfone website indicated codes were accepted. Any idea what's going on? I never had an issue with entering codes in prior months.

    Codes 66975 & 78439 for data cards have been reported for a month or so on Turk Forums to not work sometimes. Happened to me last month, and even shorted the purchased 1 GB a small amount.

    Shorted a small amount, as if you bought a GB and they gave you 1000MB instead of 1024?
    That's intentional.


    Are the promo codes still down?
    There's a thread on that.
    I bought texts for a relative, and it was a bit of a disappointment to buy 1000+1000 and later find out she only got 1000.
    Oh, well, she'll get 16k texts if the rewards program follows through on its promises.
    Tracfone rewards referral code XQOQ-9C34 gives 8,000 points to new rewards members.

    I got 82 MB less than the 1 GB (1024 MB) that I bought. Came out to only a 942 MB add. I did not contest it at that point.

    How do they even generate something like that?

    Makes me wonder if the phone used 58MB during the period in question.

    Tracfone would probably say so.

    Today I used promo code 69458 to my 1GB refill, which was accepted ("promo code applied") at checkout but it was never added. I had let that slip last time but not this time. Had a nice and short chat with a CSR who added the missing 500MB manually. They need to fix their system.

    I also used promo code 69458 on my 1GB refill, and just like Jairzinho, it was accepted with "promo code applied" at checkout, but 30 minutes later, only 1GB was added but not the 500MB. I sat on chat with a customer service agent for about 10 minutes, who then manually added the extra 500MB of data. I agree - they need to fix their system.

    Why do they care whether their system is fixed or not? They are being sold to Verizon.

    So Verizon doesn't sue them for selling them crap?
    My TracFone referral code is FZOU-CE7D which will give you 8,000 points.

    Still not working.
    Been on chat for far longer than it's worth, but I'm getting fed up with this and don't want to just give up.

    Still not working.
    Good news is that I just had an all time record chat session of twelve minutes to get my promo bonus.
    Last week it took about an hour.

    Just added two $10 for 1GB data add-ons and got the 500MB bonus for both.

    Working again?
