Our family is always looking for ways to cut bills, and I know it won’t be that far off before our son will be asking for a cell phone! I recently learned about Zact mobile service which lets you pay only for what you use, and if you don’t use it all during the month you will get the money applied toward your next month’s bill! In fact the average bill is $22 per month.
You can pick voice, texting, and even data plans a la carte which is perfect for those families who don’t want their kids to have data plans! It works off of the Sprint cellular and data network which means it provides you with nationwide coverage which is really great for us because we are a serious road trip family! (saving money, remember?!) We love traveling and exploring the country but don’t want to have to worry about not having cell phone reception wherever we go.
Zact has partnered exclusively with Best Buy Mobile specialty stores to offer their products which is REALLY helpful (it used to be sold online only) because that means you can actually go into a Best Buy Mobile Specialty store, talk to someone who knows how to use it, and see it for yourself in person rather than just randomly ordering it online. There is no contract with Zact AND it’s shareable! Which means siblings and families can share the same pool of talk, text and data that you pay for without having to pay for those “extra line” fees.
Worried your kids will talk too much?
Parents can set allowances on the amount of talk, text, data, CURFEWS, block contacts, and even control the apps your kids have access to. Now THAT is my kind of customization! Whenever my kids do get cell phones I definitely want parental controls on it! Plus then you don’t have that extremely overpriced phone bill because your kids decided to talk all night or stream movies too long on their data plans!
A little info on the Best Buy Mobile™ specialty store experience:
Best Buy Mobile specialty stores – these shops are found locally in malls or in your neighborhood shopping centers, and are focused on mobile devices and accessories. They carry the latest smartphones and tablets from Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and Zact from all the top brands, as well as all sorts of stylish accessories to suit your preferences. The staff is highly trained, and non-commissioned, which means they can help determine the right phone for you, as well as compare plans across the carriers without being a “vulture” for sales. They can set up and activate your new phone, transfer your contacts and data and set you up with the complimentary Walk Out Working™ program.
