    Nice card.

    Loved the card, and the program. My mobile is not my main phone; it's just for travel and emergencies. Usually, I have extra minutes, so the carry over feature is great. My complaints start with: there isn't a stop watch on my phone, and Tracfone didn't warn me how much time I had remaining. I left Verizon, but they let me know how many minutes I had left. And then there isn't an automatic refill feature with the card. Tracfone has programs that have auto refill, but NOT WHAT I WANT. I could have stayed with Verizon.

    Enough for an emergency phone

    I bought a basic phone and card because my smart phone locked up just before a trip. I thought this would just be a solution to handle making a call in an emergency. When I activated the phone, it gave me 180 minutes (3x) with the 60 minute card. That has me using it as a regular phone. Had it been only 60 minutes I would be using the phone quite differently. Paying $20 for 60 minutes seems expensive. Apparently some TracFone phones are 3x and others are not. So your mileage may vary.

    In my opinion this is the cheapest way to have a cell phone for young kids. You just add the mins. as you need. I buy 4 of these airtime cards a year, (total cost $80.00) for an entire year of cell phone use. Like I said, good for kids or even for people who just want to have a cell phone in case of emergencies.

    Bought phone card along with pre-paid phone. It wasn't activated before shipped to me so couldn't use. Called Best Buy customer service, they were no help at all. Had to call Trac fone and create a ticket and now have to wait 48 hours before I can use phone. Great work, Best Buy. Won't be purchasing anything from you again.

    Like TracFone; have had one since the 90's. If you want a phone service, this card is good for the phone being on for 3 months and 60 minutes. There are always codes online to give you extra minutes. Only down side, they ship card; NOT DIGITAL. So you have to wait to reup your time.

    I use this for 3 months and if I don't need to use the phone, the minutes and texts last for another month and you don't lose them. they roll over to the next card. so if you don't use your much much, you can spend $20 x 3 (4 months) and it costs $60 per year or $80 continuous for phone service.

    Needed this for my son's TracFone. I couldn't find them in the store but the app said they were in stock. I had to find an employee and even they couldn't find it. They finally went in the back and found one. Not sure why they weren't stocked with the other gift cards.

    It's a Pre-Paid Phone Card!

    Not much can be said about a pre-paid phone card (to be given as a gift) unless the PIN does not work. However, it was good to see Best Buy offering these again after a 1 or 2 year absence. For that, 5 stars.

    I know how much time I spend on my cellphone. This serves my need and the price is right. I can purchase it anywhere but I prefer to get it at BB since I'm always in the mood to browse and check out what the store carries. It's a win-win!

    I like the prepaid phone card because it's easy to add to your phone and perfect for people who don't want to be locked into a contract. I use my cell phone for mostly calls and tests and this is works well for me.

    I use a TracFone as it is the best option for me as I don't use my cell phone as often as most people and I get my phone cards at Best Buy as I know they will be available there. The purchase also adds to my points.

    My family insisted that I get a cell phone for when I am traveling on the road for safety reasons. I have finally given in to their demands and these 90-day cards make this the least expensive cell phone that I can own.

    It seems that I run out of service days before anything else, so this one suits me best. BestBuy's payment options suit me better than Tracfone itself, if I heed my service warnings and allow for delivery time.

    I use Tracfone for my little one when i take a trip to a amusement park or any family activity. I like the fact you can pay for minutes rather pay monthly which makes ideal for an extra emergency phone.

    As I do not use a lot of data, the Tracfone Subscription meets my personal needs at a very ressonable price. The service is pretty good so I don't believe I am losing out on coverage.

    Tracfone is great for adding minutes, text, and web for cell phone usage. No contracts. Set price. Can buy online or in store. Great at BEST so can use purchase points to buy items.
