    Only Works When Activated

    We've kept a TracFone for a few years, mostly for emergencies. It's great that it can be charged up for a year and minutes roll over from one year to the next. My only mistake was ordering this card from Best Buy on-line. Apparently, it was just tossed in the box without activating first so the card was useless. I gave Best Buy a call and was eventually able to get it resolved. If you are reading this, and you want to buy one, get the one with electronic delivery, do not get the physical card unless you are buying it in one of the stores where it will be properly activated.

    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.

    there's so many to choose from at Best Buy when it come to selection of prepaid non-contract phones. I personally like Tracfone for its basic service and purpose. I know all major retailers and supermarkets sell Tracfone prepaid cards but I like getting mine at Best Buy. Easy in, easy out- relaxing to browse other things and find good deals too.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Solid format, good service all around . Cards are divided equally over three formats of communication. Tracfone tends to have a lot of separation of services with their system. More suited for individuals who use cell phones, and especially texting / data infrequently.

    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.

    This card was a gift for my elderly mom. I bought it so she could use her prepay tracfone when she needs to. It's something she totally needs. I wish there were more minutes, but I will watch her time to see if she is running out.

    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've had Trac phone for many years and like the convenience of the 60 minute card because many times I just need more days and not many more minutes. If you need more than that just get a higher amount of minutes card.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
