How Do I Buy Data with Tracfone?

If you're planning to buy data with Tracfone, there are plenty of options out there, so be vigilant and patient to get what you need at a price that works for your needs and the amount of usage you're looking for. Get help from the customer support team on the plans available and ways of buying data.

If you're looking for a way to get more data on your Tracfone, there are many ways to do so. You can purchase a certain amount outright, or you can buy refills in increments of either 100 MB or 250 MB that last 30 days each. If you want even more data per month, opt for the Unlimited Monthly plan that gives you up to 10 GB per month with no overages. Here are the primary routes you can take when buying data.

Purchase Data Overage Free Plans

These plans come in increments of 100 MB or 250 MB and last for 30 days each. They are one of the most used deals by Tracfone users because they give you extra data per month without having to pay too much more. This is the cheapest and most economical option you have, but it may not suit everyone, depending on your needs and usage habits. Call Tracfone's customer support team for guidance on what plan is right for you.

Monthly Unlimited

There's also the monthly "Unlimited" plan that gives you 1 GB of data per month for $50. It's not technically unlimited, but it is the equivalent of 92 hours of streaming HD video or 600 minutes of streaming music.

The plan lasts 30 days each month, and you need to buy it every month if you want to keep your data. Most of the time, it makes sense for people who will be on Wi-Fi but need some buffer room when they're out and about. It's also great for people who don't use their phone that much but just need it as a backup device in case of an emergency.

Data Only

For the genuinely data-intensive users out there, you can purchase data only to use on your own devices such as your laptop, tablet or USB dongle. It is great if you have a tablet or hotspot and don't want to pay for an additional line on your plan.

Depending on the amount purchased, you can buy data in increments of 1 GB, 5 GB, and 10 GB, all either good for 30 or 90 days. Be careful using up too much, though, because overages still apply. Reach out to customer support for further guidance.

Refill Plans for Short Term Needs

Tracfone also offers different refills when you need a lot of data in a short amount of time. The best bang for your buck is the 500 MB, 30-day card that gives you six times more data than its regular counterparts.

You can find the 500 MB card at various retailers in the Tracfone section, including Walmart, CVS Pharmacies, Best Buy and Target. You can also find them online on the official Tracfone website and other retailers such as Amazon and eBay.
