When You Need A Lot of Data

I have been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions are mine alone. #DataAndAMovie #CollectiveBias

Normally I’m not excited about the month of April but this year I am. Winter is over. Spring is finally here and it’s time for a tax refund! A tax refund can make it a great time to upgrade your mobile plan at a value you aren’t going to believe! That’s right, the Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan has Unlimited Talk (and believe me this family can talk!) Text (even the youngest grandchildren can text emojis) and Data which (get this) includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE data AND a FREE (that’s right, totally free) movie on VUDU every month. Who doesn’t like FREE and who doesn’t like movies?

If you are like me there is nothing more important than the happiness of your family. So get outside and go for a walk. Stop and pick some daffodils, like my granddaughter and I did. And then investigate the Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan because it can make your whole family happy, happy, happy!


Even E.T. Would Love to Phone Home on this Phone!

The first thing you need is a phone and mine is the Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime from Walmart. It was only $99 (Rollback from $149.00) and I also purchased the Starter Kit for $25.00.

Here’s the path I took to find the phone and the Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan. Just follow the yellow brick road, or the pictures!

And after I got the phone there was a wonderful and wise Walmart employee who made the set up with the Starter Kit quick and easy. I didn’t have to do a thing except get a great deal!

The phone itself is easy to use and Abby, my almost 11 year old granddaughter, THINKS it’s hers. She definitely knows as much if not more than I do about all the things the phone is capable of doing! I know one thing for sure, we both love taking pictures and this phone is great for that. The extra data will ensure that we can keep and share as many photos as we want! This is my Cockapoo, Bella, she thinks she’s a professional model, can you tell?


What My Granddaughter and I have planned

Abby and I have been planning what we are going to do with all our extra data. Both of us love country music so we decided to stream our favorite country singers while we are outdoors walking.  There’s nothing better to motivate you to walk faster and climb some hills than some fast paced country tunes!

Another plan Abby and I came up with is to have a Nana/Granddaughter movie night with our Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan and our free VUDU movie each month ($7 value). What nana doesn’t love to snuggle with their granddaughter and watch a movie! We could watch it on our computer but we have ROKU(R) so Abby gets to pick the movie (only the G rated ones of course) and I’m bringing the popcorn! We haven’t decided which movie we are watching first but we both like love stories so I’m guessing we will start with one of those. She’s a zombie fan but I’m not so… “No Zombies Allowed.” 


One more activity my granddaughter and I have planned is watching lots of basketball and using social media via our phones and data plan to cheer on our team. It’s a long standing tradition at our house to cheer for our favorite college basketball team and our whole family loves to get in on the action. We pack the den, sit on couches and the floor, and yell at the tops of our lungs!

So how about you? Does your family use a lot of data? Would you enjoy a free movie every month? Do you love doing things with your children and your grandchildren, including going for walks and making pictures of family pets and flowers? If so, then visit your friendly Walmart store. They want to help you set up your Family Plus Plan so check it out now!
