It seems that Amazon is expanding it's Amazon Wireless Plans Subscription platform and has now launched it's third brand under Tracfone (previously launched Simple Mobile & Cricket). Amazon Wireless Plans for Prime Members are very similar to brands own plans but with extra incentives/savings for Prime Members.

Amazon Wireless Plans [amazon.com]

On a high level, this plan is $20 All-In including Taxes & Fees ($2 savings in my state) and I get 10% cash back every month (another $2 savings). I tried to buy 2 but it seems to be limited to 1 per Prime Account.

$20 ALL IN PRICE ($15 for Month 1)
-$5 OFF First Month
-$2 Tax Savings
-$2 10% Cash Back every month
-$1 5% provided by Amazon Credit Card
= $17-$18 Final Price (if you add up all the savings)

In comparison, on Tracfone.com you pay $20 + Taxes & Fees.

Benefits
- Unlimited Talk, Text, 1GB Data
- Carrier Choice (ATT/VERIZON/TMO Compatible SIMs)
- Limited to one per accounts
- No Contract, Credit Checks, Keep your Phone, Keep your Phone Number
- Amazon Customer service and billing vs having to deal with Tracfone

Q&A
- Can I switch if I already have Tracfone? A: Yes, as a Tracfone customer you may switch to this Amazon Wireless Plan, Keep Your Number, and enjoy these great benefits. Just purchase this new Plan (SIM included), activate the new SIM, then swap the SIM in your current phone.
- What SIM do I need if I already have a Tracfone device? A: Most Tracfone devices are CDMA based so you must purchase a CDMA Compatible SIM.
- What happens if I run out of data, is it throttled or capped? A: 1GB of Data is capped however you can always buy additional data for $10 for every additional 1GB. You may purchase this item for additional data http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HKAO6C0
- Can I switch to a $25 or $30 plan? A: At this time no, only the $20 1GB is available.
- Can I add more than one line? A: At this time no, only 1 plan per Prime Account is available.

Did this really go front page for a $5 discount on an overpriced wireless service?

I dont think people should be comparing plans from T-Mobile and Sprint here or other similar threads because Verizon is usually a little more expensive. This would also aid those who are using tracfone locked phones from deals here. And you get better CS with Amazon. Just my two cents.

Im a mint 8gb plan user but i get that verizon plans cost more. That said, requiring prime is unnecessary imo and i dont like that trend of locking deals behind prime from a consumer standpoint. I have prime but i don't think things should head that way. they do that with woot sellout too

Some people on SD currently have the regular $20 plan, so to save money for the same plan - why not? Not saying it's the best plan out in the market, but to save and switch for being on the same plan savings is a savings and a SD IMO.

Savings is fine...but it's a ONE TIME savings. Doesn't deserve front page.

It's not just a one time. It's on going 10% Credit back + Taxes per month benefit..

The first month is just an additional savings on top of that but on average you are saving $4 per month by switching over for the same plan.

Many of these other plans you throw at us here proving there better plans are CDMA plans. This plan is GSM compatible. Not everybody want to get a new non-GSM phone to get on a cheap plan.

Also Boost has a $10 plan with 1gb data. The only advantage to the Amazon plan is that the data rolls over if you don't use it all. Otherwise why pay double what you would pay at Tello or Boost?
Looking for a cell for my senior mom. Just to have in case.
Would Boost or Telo be good for her?
TIA

Looks like you can't keep your number if it is just swapping out the old SIM for a new one.

I no longer buy the Tracfone unlimited cards. The unused data is supposed to carry over to the next month, but that didn't happend for me two out of three time. And TF customer service would not actually listen to my complaints or help. Its like in one ear, out the other. So, YMMV. BTW, I was buying the $30 3GB unlimited cards. I stopped last month. Fooled me twice, shame on me.

How is this a deal? Tello 1gb plan is way cheaper than this, $10-11 a month with taxes and fees. I think ultra or mint also has a 1gb plan for similar too
Some people need Verizon's network.

Buy this and pray that it just works and you never have to contact support. They went from bad to completely dysfunctional. I recently spent around 6 hours total time on the phone and chat, being passed around from one idiot to the next to no resolution of something super trivial. At the end, I just ported out to get my phone working again. Beware.

Here's some alternative under $20 not requiring prime or other cashback gimmick.

1. On Verizon : US Mobile. $15 pm + taxes and fees should be under $20 with 2.5gb pm on Verizon.
2. On Tmobile: Tmobile connect at $15 for 2gb hard capped+ tax. Buy refills from ebay at 60% value. Saves tax as well.
3. On ATT: H2O wireless (capped at 4 and 8 mbps) for $18 with autopay for 2gb.Good2Go wireless for $15 - 1gb and $20 with 3gb with autopay (+ double data till dec 2020). if willing to pay in advance then Freeup mobile for 3 months or 12 months at $15 + some taxes for 3gb pm.

If you want to pay annual in advance then Boom mobile is also an option. $240 for 5gb pm on Veizon/Tmobile/ATT. There have been talk that Boom blue (ATT) is biz line but I guess they will not acknowledge it maybe due to some clause in contract. People get ATT branded sim.

Monthly plan US mobile, annual plan Red Pocket or Net10 (sister company of Tracfone). Both via ebay.
