How I'm Using My Tax Refund Cash

It's that time of year again - tax time! I always enjoy this time of year because I'm proud of how smart I am when it comes to how I use my tax refund. As someone who is careful with their spending, I like to make sure I make the most of every last dollar from my return.

So this year, I spent my tax refund cash to purchase the Samsung Galaxy On5 (just $69 on rollback!) and the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan.  Before I explain how I utilize this, let me explain what it all is.  The Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan = Unlimited* Talk, Text, & Data which includes up to 10 GB of 4G LTE then 2G plus a free VUDU movie credit every month (which is a $7 value- same cost as a new release rental) per line for just $49.88.   I mean how great is that? (*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G)

So here's how I'm using my tax refund in my blog life, personal life, and work life.

Social Media
As a blogger, I'm always on social media whether it's sharing and promoting blog posts or interacting with my readers.  So because of that, I need a lot of data at my fingertips and that's just what I'm getting with the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan.  The fact that I have 10GB of 4G LTE data means I can stay connected without having to worry if I'm using too much data.  I mean 10GB is a lot for me!  That means no stress and that feeling of pressure that I normally get when I am worried about going over my limits. 

Movie Night
Who DOESN'T love a movie night, right?  If you like family movie nights like I do, then the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan and the free VUDU movie credit each month really makes sense!  The free movie is like a treat so it makes me enjoy movie night even more than usual.  Since I'm always on the go it's hard for me to force myself to sit around and relax, but getting that free VUDU movie credit each month makes me think of it as something I have to do.  And it's always worth it in the end.

Jamming Out During A Workout
So exercise is a huge part of my life these days and in order to maintain that, I need good tunes at my disposal or else I get bored and decide not to bother working out.  So when I head out for a run, I'm so excited because I can play my music while I jog to the beat. Once again, the 10GB of 4G LTE data help me stream the songs I NEED.

Good Ol' GPS
I usually run a lot of errands on a weekly basis and sometimes I go to new stores and of course I need GPS to figure out where the heck I'm going.  I used to stress out about using up my data on GPS but now with 10GB of 4G LTE Data that's not a concern.  It's stressful enough when I don't know where I'm driving, so why make it worse by stressing about low data limits?

I don't just mean online shopping, I mean I use my phone in the store when I'm checking out and want to use coupons.  I am a sucker for coupon apps so it's great to know I can once again whip out my phone, not having to worry about my data usage (10GB is plenty for me) and scroll through all the offers and deals to show the cashier. Plus I have more money to spend on shopping trips since I get such a great deal on my Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan.

For someone like me, that uses my phone in so many aspects of my life, this makes the most sense.  You can find this phone and this plan at Walmart in the electronics and cell phone aisle. 

And since Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pay $19.88 for the SIM Kit when you sign up.  Even if you just bring your own phone, you can still get the SIM Kit for just $19.88. The benefit of the SIM Kit is that you don't have to pay an activation fee!

Making the most of your tax refund can stretch the benefits out so that you get the most bang for your buck and make the right investment. 

So how will you use YOUR tax refund cash and how could you benefit from the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan?
