Deal had been mentioned/reported on HoFo and prepaidphonenews.
Tried to buy this yesterday and was shot down by cashier. Ask to check price and CC terminal displayed $1.20. Don't know if cashier manually overrode the price or what, but told me my total was $33 something. CC terminal displayed product description with $19.99 but a price of $29.99.
I checked at my local store and asked the clerk about the possibility of additional stock when I didn't find any on the peg. Turns out she had just pulled them all, she had probably 6-7 stacked behind the register, after receiving an email from corporate alerting local stores to the price mistake. If you want this deal, better hurry and hope your local store isn't current on their communications.

Posts on more than one forum that they are ringing up at the non-price mistake price of $29.99 for the Tracfone kit and $49.99 for the Net 10 kit.

Or is this deal over? The ones on eBay are useless, they don't have the 60 min card.
I went to family dollar tonight- the clerk got the manager- the code did not work- he said for me to bring in the flyer. I noticed it wanted to charge me the $1.65 911 fee...PA has one of the highest 911 fees in the country. i wanted the cell to use in case my car breaks down. a cell phone with no service can still call 911 who then can get me a tow truck.
It looks like the ring plus phone has to make do.
on the eBay vendor- i did not post it because i did not think it was allowed... he has sold out of the $2.09 cards. I was the last buyer
Ah, I get it now. Just saw that this was posted at the usual suspect "elsewhere" on the 10th. Just didn't notice it here. Well, that's on me. At this point, it's dead, dead, dead. Anybody that still is able to purchase at $1 should also go buy a scratch off, cause it's their lucky day.

I am glad someone on her warned me. i bought 2 on eBay- once i found out it is just an activation- i emailed to cancel...one did cancel.. the other is anyones guess... so thanks to the guys here instead of losing $4.18, i will lose $2.19 or less. thanks
