Tracfone sent out a "Mothers day" special email. It offers $20 off any phone or phone/airtime bundle purchase from their website costing at least $89. You enter promo code TFMRET20OFF which the email says is good until the end of May.

 

  I ordered a reconditioned LG Optimus Dynamic II  and 200 minute card bundle a few days ago and got it today.  I would have definitely ordered the 450 minute card bundle for another $20 by using the Mother's Day
special.  I was quite happy and surprised to find that a 4GB microSD was also included with the phone.  It looks like it will be a nice upgrade from the Samsung Galaxy Centura I got on Black Friday for free.  
I know paying $9.99 for my Optimus II it is not as nice as getting the LG Fuel for free in an airtime bundle, but that deal is gone for now.  The advantage to buying these bundles is getting free shipping and FWcash-back

  I should have bought more, I did not predict using so many minutes.

Tracfancier, would the battery in the Dynamic fit the Fuel or dynamicII ? That alone would be worth the bother....methinks.

In the past  I have had no luck getting people to contribute to threads started listing battery part numbers for Tracfone models. 
I have had neither the Dynamic or the Dynamic II models.  Hopefully someone else will post these model numbers
Fuel battery is  BL-44JH (1700 mAh)
306G battery is  BL-44JN (1540 mAh)
840G battery is  BL-40MN (1000 mAh)

I will fill in below when confirmed by two people:
Dynamic
Dynamic II battery is BL-44JH (1700mAh)

The main reason I mention keeping a spare Smartphone:
Your smartphone is stolen. You can quickly transfer everything to the spare before the thief uses or transfers it. You cannot transfer from a smartphone to a dumbphone.

  Buy it for battery only but might be a problem later as tracfone doesn't like you buying phone without activating.

I usually buy phones two at a time , mainly to have a spare battery,but also to transfer from one phone to anothr. Idid however take advantage of the "free" lg34 and the lg39 from TF last month.Glad I did as I got to check out two different phones that ,icidently share the same battery type. I have to say the LG34C Optimus Fuel leaves the LG39C Optimus Dynamic (II?) in the dust!IMHO

I liked Tracfone when I used it ( I needed it for my door code), however, their website for adding minutes was a struggle. Customer service is also tough. I let my minutes expire, and the phone, and it was beyond difficult to get to a person. I needed a San Diego phone number instead of a San Francisco one.

Therefore, any deals offered on Tracfone is highly appreciated - anything to make their service easier. I like to post codes for them as well because I want people to have a smoother, better experience than I did.

Thanks for the codes.

HSN deal is still in effect (but no longer as a presale).
SALE ENDS AT MIDNIGHT SATURDAY, 5/23


Someone purchased this bundle a couple of weeks ago at $130 says: "the minutes are definitely tied to the phone".

HSN and QVC change their procedures every so often. Does anyone have current experience on how HSN Promotional airtime is applied? Were you able to successfully put it on a dumbphone (using a promo code) and then transfer/activate the bundled phone?
What problems did you have to overcome.

I bought one of the LG Ultimate II phones with the 400 minute card. My current service is T-Mobile pre-pay.

I am still not clear about the sequence of things RE porting a phone #. AS a pre-paid customer, T-Mobile doesn't know most of the things Tracfone is looking for on their number port webpage. Can I still port the #?

RE adding minutes and porting a phone #, if I add the minutes card AND THEN port my phone # from T-Mobile, do I lose the minutes I added from the card?

  Thats what I get when I try to buy from any of the Tracfone companies.....

I have tried various ways to hide who I am but no go,
this all stems from years ago when
Net10 had a refurb for something like $23 shipped, back then all of their phones came with 300 minutes for 60 days, even the refurbs
also included was the 300 minute refill card
I hit them hard for these several dozen
Sold the refills and netted the $23 so poor me was left with 4 years of free cell serivce

ALso, I know they hit the card and got authorization, but they still say
credit card error
just after I buy so no new orders for me
Same thing if I do a phone in order

rated:
Tracfone seems to prefer indicating "credit card error", rather than giving the real reason for denying you the ability to make a purchase. It defers the blame from Tracfone onto the credit card company. Just another example of how secretive and deceptive Tracfone operates.

  You need to contact T-Mobile to find out what information they require to release a number.  When T-Mobile receives a port out request they want to make sure someone other than you isn`t stealing the number.  Tracfone needs to know what information to give T-Mobile so they will release your number. 

You will need airtime to activate a Tracfone smartphone.  If you activate with a Tracfone provided phone number and later port your number from T-Mobile you will lose the airtime remaining on the U2.  A CSR can prevent this, but there are very few who know how to do it.  I strongly advise you not to trust their CS department with this.  Even testing the service with a throw away phone number will end up complicated because a CSR will be required unless you let the days of service run out to de-activate the phone.  Transferring to an active phone always requires a CSR. 

If you still do not understand ask more questions.  Or state how you understand the procedure, and we can correct you if necessary.

They track cards and shipping addresses. I don't know the exact numbers but when you reach a threshold they will blacklist you and this is well known. You need a lot of "friends" if you will, or some other creative ideas, to get around this.

I don't think it really affects most of us, only the flippers and resalers for the most part
