    we wont know for a while, takes 2 months to know, just started experiments 2 weeks ago---in 6 weeks will know Doh! I think there maybe quite a few of us checking pitflyer was the main one.. (I think I got that right)

    Exactly, that's why Pettyfogger's situation could be very informative. He has a device that was added ~ 6 weeks ago that has never been activated. His points are due to vest in a week or so. If he activates it now and gets his points, then that would tell us a lot.

    I'm not new to tracfone, but new to the rewards points game. If I get a $300 coupon and purchase two phones from tracfone, I then need to add those 30 day cards twice to get them unlocked.

    Can I also add them to my account and get more add a line points from them? Or is that a loophole that's been filled?

    It has been reported that you only need the initial month of service. New iPhones will be automatically unlocked on day 60 after activation. For Android phones, you can use the TFW unlock portal to submit your request. Sometimes you may need to call the unlocking department (esp. some refurbished phones.)
    Yes, the phones you purchased from Tracfone also earn AAL bonus points. You just need to pay $$ to activate them (except the phones with required plan purchase that you already paid.)

    Just a reminder that while iphones auto unlock after 60 days even with only 30 days of service the points don't vest till day 61. So that's why to get the most out of them you gotta get 61 days of service IMHO. I usually take the $15 required with recon and then 2k point redemption for 90 days which ends up making me 8k net and an unlocked phone.

    Is it possible that the system is seeing this line as the 6th phone in the account and ineligible for the bonus? I think you said you deleted some recently, but maybe one line wasn't fully deleted or something.

    IIRC, tomseys may have a data point. He added a 6th line, but I don't remember if the points were pending at first. I only remember that the points didn't vest on day 61.

    Yeah the points were pending on that one but didn't vest. I didn't expect them to really. That was a while ago.

    Someone suggested it was because I used Amex with it. That was for $5 off/statement credit.

    Wasn't gonna order more than 2 (after mentally debating if I should even do that) but I've got 5 so far. Tempted for another 2 to fill two remaining AAL slots. I really should just stop lol.
    hehe yah I just ordered total 4, only 2 have arrived, I am always on pins and needles with the trouble getting packages at the house I have had, but the last 2 came, appears like these will come to appears to be in my state now, yah hehe these very tempting to get 10 or something at these prices lol,

    seems like if you overdo tho they will flag you for something and penalize you, greed vs penalty with tracfone.. In fact I still have some coupons to reedem but I am resisting getting the iphones that I noticed were finally on sale again today, as I want to space them out a little, not buy too many in a month (its difficult to do greed vs penalty lol)

    I need ~400 points to get me over the threshold for a $300 coupon. Using the "earn points" activities will probably take me 3-4 months.

    Anyone sign up for the Auto-Refill bonus of 250 points and then cancel the line before the next refill? Did you get the 250 bonus points right away or were the points removed?

    Okay, I just used chat to add a line. It seemed to go smoothly. I saw my 10,000 pending points appear. While I was on chat I asked the agent to go ahead and activate the phone with a new number. I have made and received a call with the new number. However, when I look at the app this account shows the new number as inactive. Should I worry or check back in a few minutes?

    Duh, answered my own question. I logged into the account via the web and it shows the new line as active.
