Family Movie Night from Walmart Family Mobile
If you are anything like me dealing with cell phone and wireless providers can seem really overwhelming and daunting. There are so many choices and so many different specials, ads, promotions, and plans; the whole “nine yards” can feel like endless MILES! I feel like even when I’m not “on the prowl” for a new wireless carrier I find myself really paying attention to advertisements, promotions, etc. because I feel like I need to make a change from my current situation! I want something cost effective that is also a good value for the money and I like the idea of not having a contract but have never looked into it very closely. I go through a TON of data in a month’s time because I work on my phone whenever I am on the go (which seems to be ALWAYS) so my data needs play a huge role in what I look for in a carrier.
I jumped at the chance to give Walmart Family Mobile a try because of the value for money, local store options, cheap phones, and the option to bring my own phone number, phone, and more! I have to admit I was also drawn to the idea of getting a free movie from VUDU each month for paying my bill on time! $7 may not seem like a “make or break it” kind of deal but it’s an added value and a great program loyalty option! That new release rental each month would give us awesome family time and a great excuse to unwind and settle down for a bit! We love the chance to do a movie night because we run at full speed all the time. Settling down and taking a break is really important every once in awhile!
Needless to say when I did my research and found out about Walmart Family Mobile I was intrigued by the simple and cost effective claims of the Plus Plan; a $49.88 per line plan that includes unlimited talk, text, and data with up to 10 GB of 4G LTE coverage. On top of the free movie every month which we can stream on our smart TV, our game console, or tablets, this kind of a plan would save us a TON of money (and headaches) over the course of a year! The Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan includes more data than we could ever go through as individuals. We occasionally have really awful wifi at home so it can get frustrating when we have to deal with slow speeds in order to save our data. With the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan we don’t have to worry about saving data. I have plenty of data so I can work while I’m walking on the treadmill at the gym…I’ll be the first to admit that I have skipped workouts because of needing to get work done. This plan allows me to have the data I need to work on the go without a fear of a huge added expense for data overages!
Before I show you our awesome (and a little glam) movie night set up, I want to also say how impressed I am with the cost effective equipment for the Walmart Family Mobile plans. I have always been with companies that were built around products that were expensive so signing contracts was the way to keep you hooked long enough to offer discounts on devices so I was amazed when I realized that we could get phones brand new for less than $150. I purchased the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime which is currently on rollback from $149 to $129! You also have to purchase the starter kit which contains your SIM card for the Walmart Family Mobile Plans and that too is on rollback to just $19.88 from $25, so they’re cheaper than before and set to be on sale through July 7th! I really like the phone it has all the great features I expect from a new piece of technology and for much less than I expected! I really appreciate that there are options out there that don’t make it feel like you are stuck with a phone forever and a day because of the cost. I’m a technology guru and I love new devices so this makes it easy (and less painful for my wallet) when I want to switch it up and try out something new! **Disclaimer: All prices for phones and plans included in this post are accurate as of the date of posting; however, these prices are subject to change.

The icing on the cake with the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan is that you get the free movie each month from VUDU. We love snuggling up on the couch to watch a movie once in a while and this is a really great feature for us! I wanted to share with you a little bit of a family movie night set up in our house! You’ll notice that I went straight for the good stuff: finger foods and snacky items! When it comes to family movie night from Walmart Family Mobile I want easy, tasty, and splurge items! I like that doing easier food options lets ME enjoy family movie night as much as everyone else! It’s not all cleanup and preparation and work! I featured some bubbly drinks for a touch of glam, gold decorations, and our favorite cookies, chips, and pretzels along with a finger food appetizer! We like to pick at all kinds of stuff while we watch our movie on the TV via our gaming console so finger foods are a must!
I might be a little too in love with these popsicle spritzers as well….You know you can take any clear bubbly soda and turn it into a fun and fancy drink buy just flopping a popsicle in there!?!?! I also really loved these appetizers which were a twist on the traditional type of bruschetta! We used a cracker, some fresh mozzarella, tomato, pepperoni, and a little drizzle of greek dressing to whip these tasty treats up in no time so we could head to the couch for some rest and relaxation in front of an awesome movie! Family Movie Night from Walmart Family Mobile is a little ironic is that it allows me to relax even more when I can also be surfing the web, social media, and texting my sister in law about wedding plans without feeling guilty about overusing data or worrying about overage charges!
My challenge for you is this: consider what you could do if you didn’t have to even think about your cell phone plan. Could you spend more time with you family? Could you fight less about who is streaming too many videos on YouTube? Would you be able to afford to do more fun things with your family?
