Walmart recently announced it’s new StraightTalk for iPhone plan – meaning that now you can hit up your neighborhood Walmart store and pick up an iPhone 5 or 4 from Walmart’s own in-house carrier, StraightTalk Wireless. So what does this mean for you? Well, StraightTalk Wireless is offering a $45 monthly unlimited plan which includes data, texting, and phone calls. Even better – Walmart will be offering customers who purchase the phone in the store, a no interest fixed-monthly payments special financing offer for only $25 a monthwith a Walmart Credit Card. The Straight Talk wireless no contract plan, exclusive to Walmart, saves consumers on average $950 a year (yes, you read that right!) when they switch from conventional contract plans with similar unlimited plans.
So aside from the fact that it could save you $1,000 each year (for shoes, clothes, or you know – your kids’ education if you’re one of those) the StraightTalk Wireless plan just gets better and better when you consider having multiple children in the family and needing phones for each of them. Our kids are 6 and 7 but that doesn’t mean there aren’t phones in our near future – I’m almost positive they will be asking for them sooner than I care to admit and a plan like this could save us thousands of dollars each year.
