Free Mad Avatar is the only FREE plan with:

$0 / Month 775 Minutes (275 Regular and 500 outgoing VoIP), 275 Text 275 MMS and 500 MB LTE Full Speed

For all those wondering between Plum and upcoming Avatar Plans:

PLUM has 200 cellular vs AVATAR 275 cellular (both have 500 VOIP)
PLUM has 500 texts vs AVATAR 275 texts
PUM has 500 MMS vs AVATAR 275 MMS
PLUM has 1gb vs AVATAR has 500mb plus one of the following add ons - an extra 250mb a month or an extra 700mb every 3 months (both have tethering)

So pick plum if you want the extra data and/or texts / MMS and Avatar for the extra cellular.

The reason I asked about WiFi is because it's mentioned on my current plan (Michelangelo) which expires tomorrow. Also, did you notice a new FREE plan called Mad Ski ?
When I clicked on "upgrade plan", this is what I see now.

Note: Mad Ski requires a paid add-on (expensive) although it's not mentioned until you select it. See attached screen capture.

Just switch to Mad Plum if you have >$5 or Mad Pops if you have <$5 in your account balance.
If you have less than $5, I suggest topping up your account balance beforehand and THEN switching to Mad Plum since it is the best available plan to switch to.

I already selected Mad Fiesta Free about a week ago. My current plan (Michelangelo) mentions "WiFi Calling is available". My Moto G4 (on Ring+) uses my home wireless network when updating apps but I don't know if my phone calls are using WiFi also.

They are usually very good at solving these kind of problems quickly.

  You needed to add the additional line(s) during the promotion.  It was never an open ended offer, it was a limited time promotion.

Oh well, Plumb is more then enough for my usage. Most of my calls and text messages use Google Voice. Essentially unlimited over WiFi.

The "Ring+ for dummies" for those who need to switch explanation of this Mad Avatar plan.
1.  You have regular voice and VOIP.  VOIP is only good for outbound
2.  You can either use the dialers within 30 days after they are available, or opt out to get calls routed through a third party and get some latency like the Legacy plans.
3.  If you use the dialers you will thereafter have unlimited allotments of voice
4.  You are being offered free data addons, you must pick them when you sign up.  700mb over 3 months or 250mb per month
5.  If you choose Mad Avatar during the first 24 hours you will change to the plan immediately, after that you will switch next billing cycle.

No this Madness has been going on even before that.

It's more likely the state of mind of the RingPlus CEO

Strangely enough, I was able to switch my kids to the Mad Plum deal tonight and schedule it to start at the end of their next billing cycle (12/17). But switching myself to Mad Ski required it to start immediately. It also required me to spend $120 to become Member+, so yeah, now I'm invested in RingPlus to the tune of $230 for myself and 2 kids. Starting the plan immediately is not a big deal since I was switching from a free plan, but I still had 5000+ of everything to use until 12/15. Now I'm a bit (OK, a lot) more limited, although I still use nowhere near my new limits on most months. And with the Mad Ski overages at only $0.03/unit, when I do go over, it'll be cheap. Even adding in the $120 for Member+ means my bills for the next year will be about the same as if I had gone with one of the $10/mo plans.

If anyone wants to use it, here's a (Google Docs/Drive) link to the spreadsheet I made to figure out which plan I should choose:  PrepaidPhonePlans.ods 
Just edit the blue cells on the "Usage" sheet to put in your own usage. The cheapest plan for you will be highlighted in yellow.  You can get your totals from the billing invoice for each month in the Billing History section of your phone on the RingPlus website. Once you add your usage in, the RingPlus and RedPocket costs will be calculated automatically. Virgin Mobile is a flat rate for the plan I would have chosen, so those are just entered manually. And the Ting pricing is convoluted enough that I didn't want to figure out how to create formulas to calculate it all, so I just manually entered those numbers. There are a couple extra columns of averages, where I removed the two outlier months because my data usage was significantly higher than the other months.

The "Usage" sheet is protected for all the calculated cells, but you can unprotect it if you want to add additional months, plans, etc. There is no password on the protection.

Edited to add: Unfortunately, if you open it in Google Sheets (online), the highlighting of the best plan doesn't always work. Open it in LibreOffice and it should work. I don't know about Excel.

It doesn't say it there, but Mad Ski requires Member+, which means $120 one-time purchase if you're not already M+.

I don't think marcopolomle was referring to any specific plan, just that the Thanksgiving/Black Friday plans were better than these new plans.

I always thought they were going for a "Crazy Eddie" vibe. As in, "Our prices are so low, we're CRAAAAAAZY!"
But the alternatives you two have come up with are just as likely.
