Walmart Family Mobile Plus Allows You to Plus Up Your Family Movie Night and Data!

Walmart is giving you data and a movie with the new Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan!  Get Unlimited Talk, Text, Data; 10GB 4G LTE plus a free movie (rental, new release = $7 value) on VUDU every month, per line for $49.88!

The new Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan gives you more!  More Talk, more Text, more Data and now more TIME with your family.  With one free movie rental included every month, you have no excuse not to have a fun night in with the family!

So how do you get started with Walmart Family Mobile Plus?

walmart-family-mobileFirst you need to visit your local Walmart store and look for the phone center.  Ours is located in the front of the store in it’s own area right next to customer service.  Other stores may have them set up in the middle of the store similar to a photo center or as a kiosk located near the registers.

The phones eligible for the Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan are easy to spot as they are all packaged in blue boxes.  Now, you may be wondering what the catch is.  Extra upfront costs?  Expensive phones?  Hidden charges?

And the answer to all that is no!  Walmart Family Mobile Plus offer eligible phones for any budget!  The Cool Pad Rogue is just$19.88! (Rollback from $39.83).  Other eligible phones include:

  • HTC Desire 626s- $129.00
  • Samsung Galaxy Grand Prime -$129 (Rollback from $149.00)
  • LG G Stylo – $179.00 (Rollback from $199.00)
  • Samsung Galaxy Core Prime – $79.92 (Rollback from $99.92)
  • Alcatel Fierce XL- $99.00 (Rollback from $119.00)
  • and more

All phones require the one-time purchase of a starter kit (if you don’t already have a phone on a Walmart plan).  This starter kit contains your SIM card and activation code.  And for the first time ever the starter kit will be on rollback for $19.88 (from $25).  That’s a lower out-of-pocket start up cost that other prepaid carriers!  Walmart Family Mobile helps you save even more money when it comes to setting up your service.


So you go to Walmart and pick out your phone and get your starter kit.  Now let’s talk about the Walmart Family Mobile Plus plan.

Walmart Family Mobile PLUS Plan includes:

  • Unlimited Talk
  • Unlimited Text
  • Unlimited Data (includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE plus data on a 4G LTE capable phone – not all phones are capable of 4G LTE.  They will get unlimited data on the plan but not at 4G LTE speeds)
  • a free movie on VUDU every month ($7 value)

All for $49.88 per month!

The $49.88 is post-paid – which means you are billed at the END of your month.  When you go to the store to set it up, you will only need to pay for the phone and the starter kit!

Unlimited data means unlimited possibilities!  Streaming on the go (great for car trips), browsing the internet, and looking up movie night ideas on your phone while in the store!

So now you have your phone, your starter kit, and your plan.  Now it’s time to plan your movie night!  It’s easy to have a movie night at home, make if fun for the kids, and not break the bank!  Especially since you’ll be getting the movie rental for FREE each month!

While I was at Walmart getting my phone I also picked up popcorn, M&M’s, cookie mix and frosting.  And it was must cheaper than concessions at the movie theater!



I think it’s easy to see what movie we used our movie credit on!  My little Captain America got to watch Captain America: The First Avenger for the first time!  But not before we made cookies decorated with red and blue sprinkles and M&Ms.   We popped popcorn and added red and blue M&Ms.

As far as decorations, we used Avengers plates and napkins leftover from last year’s birthday party.  I set out an Avengers picture that was already in Bug’s room and some patriotic tinsel I already had.  Simple and no cost to me but it made the movie night so much more fun to be a little festive!

We colored Captain America coloring sheets.  And then it was time to settle in with our snacks and watch our movie!


There is the VUDU app right on my phone.  But of course, that doesn’t mean we had to watch the movie on the phone.  Oh no!  The VUDU app works with Smart TV, ROKU(R), Chromecast(R), VUDU Spark(TM), and other compatible devices.

When I signed up for a VUDU account, it picked up right away that there was already a Chromecast connected to one of our TVs.  Easy Peasy!

Are YOU ready to make the switch to Walmart Family Mobile Plus?
