#DataAndAMovie HeroPic If you are a parent you know all too well that kids love technology and smartphones are no exception. I’ve always considered myself a bit tech savvy, but sometimes even my 2-year-old niece leaves me in awe at how quick she searches for her favorite cartoons on her daddy’s smartphone. Last month was Francisco, my stepson’s 11th birthday, and even though he has been asking for a cell phone for over a year now, my husband and I hadn’t purchased one for him because we weren’t sure the amount of data plans offered would be enough for him. Like most boys he’s a gamer, he loves Minecraft, Monster Legends and knows all about the latest apps.

So where’s the best affordable phones and cell plans? If you’re looking to make the most out of your tax refund like us, then follow along, I’ve got a jaw-dropping deal you won’t believe from Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan.

WFM #dataandamovie store Sometimes it’s hard to realize how quick they are growing up and in need of certain items like a smartphone. Now that he is on a soccer team I figure he might need his own phone to communicate with his teammates, coach, and family. So we went ahead and checked out Walmart since they always have great phones at great low prices for us looking to stay on a budget. I was amazed when I found most of Walmart Family Mobile phones on Rollback, and even though the phone I planned on getting was out of stock, there were other great options like the Alcatel Fierce XL for only $119.00 plus the Starter Kit for $25.00.

I am absolutely sure the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan is the best option for a tween’s first phone – at only $49.88 you will get unlimited talk, text, and data with 10 GB of 4G LTE data PLUS a  free movie on VUDU every month per line (new release rental, $7 value)! This is the plan where unlimited truly means UNLIMITED! No surprise bills, just a surprised kid who will now be able to share pictures and video, play games on his favorite apps and enjoy a free movie every month which he can watch on a tablet or Smart TV.

#DataAndAMovie We’ve had tons of rain this past week, so practice and games were canceled due to flooding, but the kids don’t like being indoors too long, so we decided to go check out our neighborhood park. This was the perfect moment to surprise Francisco with his new phone. His favorite feature from the Alcatel Fierce XL was the 8 MP camera and the 2 MP front camera, which will both come in very handy for those soccer shots and video chats with friends and family. With 10 GB of LTE data, he will have no problem sharing away to his social media sites.

Now I’m left wondering, at what age did you get your first cell phone?

I was 15 🙂
