Deal Details

HSN has the Tracfone LG 840G bundle (phone, home & car chargers, earbuds & choice of case) with 1400 minutes, one year of service and triple minutes for life for $99.95 (Reg. $129.95). Shipping is free.
Additionally, the Tracfone LG 505C with 1450 minutes, one year of service and triple minutes for life is available for $89.95 here [hsn.com]. (Thanks chazjr) According to eibgrad, once the minutes and service are added to the 840G, a bonus 70 minutes and 60 days of service will be added, for a total of 1,470 minutes and 14 months of service. This had been out of stock for awhile at HSN. There is an ebay seller that has a bundle with 1,350 minutes, but only 90 days of service and Amazon has a 1,200 minute bundle, but it's currently out of stock. None of the HSN codes I tried worked, including the new customer ones. They call it a smartphone, but I wouldn't. Which isn't to say it's bad, in fact, from what I've read this is one of the better Tracfones available. It just doesn't have all the bells and whistles.

It says black battery cover but it isn't any of the color choices while ordering. I want a black battery cover, none of those other ones.. Is black available? I got it anyway. Hoping the cover will be black, not blue..

Does this include unlimited 3G!?

Or does it subtract the amount of time you use the 3G from your minutes?

Rats, just got a new Tracfone now I see this! I've been using Tracfone for 10 years - an average of about 30-40 minutes per month (some of that is texting). I'm totally happy with it for a low-use mobile phone service.

Anyway, having just shopped for Tracfones, I'd say this is a sweet deal, especially since it has wi-fi capabilities. Just be careful not to use the web while away from wi-fi or it drains minutes like crazy. Texting is pretty cheap too, btw.

good post!

Yeah, that's what I wanted too, I settled on a red one. I figured if it doesn't come with the black one too it's no big deal for me to pick one up for $3 or $4. However, based on the description, I think black comes standard and the color option is just for an extra cover.

That would be cool. If I could make a couple bucks on the blue one, I would be a happy camper..

'Triple Minutes for Life'

Just remember that ONLY applies to the ORIGINAL phone you purchase. if it conks out on you and you get a replacement you don't get the 3x minutes anymore Frown

****The double or triple minutes feature applies to the life of a single TRACFONE phone. The double or triple minutes feature is not transferable to another TRACFONE even if Your phone is damaged, lost or stolen.

In for 1. Thanks OP. I needed to buy minutes, so it is like I got the phone for free.

This same combo was about $58 six months ago, i know b/c I bought one. Be advised the phone is dumb as a doorjamb. Yes it has virtual buttons, but they are no better than real buttons. The best thing about this is the triple minutes.

Is it possible to activate this phone using a different zip code and then use it in an area they won't allow it to be activated?

you can buy a double minutes for life card if, for some reason, the replacement phone does not already come with double or triple minutes for life
