Target Giftcard. Free $30 GC w/ TracFone Activation (spend $16 on $1 SIM + $15 TracFone plan, get $30 Target GC back)

$30.00
-20 Deal Score

Target currently has a promotion where they give you a $30 Gift Card if you activate a prepaid Tracfone service with them.

The cheapest option is the $1 Tracfone simcard with the $15 smartphone plan w/ 200m for 30 days.

Total comes out to $16+tax. And you receive a $30 Target Giftcard (free $12~)

NOTES.
-Target tech has to do the activation on their laptops.
-They will need an imei for the phone you're going to use. (They don't check that. They just have to put that to pass the activation screen.
-they may ask for address. Tell them to use store address and Will ask for name on the account. (Not I forced either since it's only prepaid service)
-at no point will you be asked for a credit card.
-there's no limit on purchase. As long as you're paying for the $15 plan each time, and you're activating the service you will get the $30 GC each time.
-each $1 sim kit comes with 3 Tracfone sims (att, verizon and tmobile). You can activate each sim individually on the $15 plan and you'll receive the $30 GC each time.
-Promotion "ends" on Saturday March 16. But will probably continue onto next week.
-you can use the same imei on each one of the 3 Sims in the kit (since they are different carriers under working with Tracfone). But cannot use the same imei for more than that.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Yes, once you buy the first sim, pay the $16 and you get the $30 GC, you CAN use that to pay the next $16.

I found out about this when I went to target and purchased 2 Tracfone phones. ($19.99 Alcatel myflip) . The rep told me that they could help me activate the phones in store. So I said sure.. 5 minutes later he hands me a Giftcard of $30. Along with my confirmation slip.

So I paid ($20 for the phone + the $15 plan) and I got the $30 GC. (Instant rebate basically). So I asked the rep about the promotion and he wasn't sure. So we decided to try a simcard instead of a phone. so I bought the sim and the plan. And I got the $30 GC again. I asked him if there was a limit on how many I could buy and he said not as long as I activate them. What I couldn't do was buy the phones and not activate them with them since they lose inventory and don't get credit for the activations.


I'm hoping some of you test this out and come back to this thread to share your experience.

I just went to a different target store and they only had 1 pack. But since 3 come in that pack I walked out with $90 in GCS 🤣.

You just have to make sure the Rep activated it on their laptop. Gift card shows up on the second pague of your confirmation sheet.
