3 Ways to Use Your Tax Refund

As you know, we are right in the middle of tax season.  Each year everyone seems to have a plan for their tax refund.  Will you save it? Go on vacation?  Make some home improvements?  Pay off debts?  If you are a Walmart Family Mobile customer, one thing you will not have to spend your refund on is an over-priced phone bill.  Today I’m going to explain why Walmart Family Mobile is a lifesaver for my family when it comes to saving money, and I’m discussing 3 ways to use your tax refund.

Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan

The Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan is just $49.88 per line and includes unlimited* talk, text, and data,  and it also includes a free VUDU movie credit every month per line. (The VUDU movie credit is a $7 value.)

*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G.

The great thing about the VUDU movie credit is that you can use it on all your devices, including you computer, smart tv, or other streaming device.  This allows my husband and I to have a nice quiet movie night at home.

The extra data also comes in handy, because my husband and I both use our cell phones for work, and this allows us to use the internet or social media from our phones any time!

A variety of phones are available for Walmart Family Mobile.  You can find them in the electronics department at Walmart.  While picking up your phone, you can also pick up a SIM Kit for $19.88, or if you already have a cell phone, just pick up the SIM Kit.  No further activation fees are required.  And since Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pay $19.88 when you sign up.

Being a Walmart Family Mobile customer is great for a our household budget.  Our cellphone bill is lower, and we never have to worry about hidden charges and new fees.  And this gives us extra money to spend elsewhere.

Now that tax season is here, Walmart Family Mobile is helping us to maximize our refund.  Here are a few things I’m looking forward to spending that extra money on.

Phone Upgrade – We have 3 cell phone users in our home, so as you can imagine, we generally upgrade one or more of our phones once a year.  Walmart has a lot of great cell phones at low every day prices.  Recently we purchased the Samsung On5.  This phone regularly retails for $119, but it is currently on roll back for $69.

Flower Bed

Create a Little Curb Appeal – Last year we built this flower bed for our yard. (I used a picture from last year, because the flowers aren’t in bloom yet.)  As spring arrives, I’m looking forward to working in our garden, and one thing I have in mind is to buy some new decorations for the flower beds and the yard.  My husband also wants to purchase a new porch swing, and I’d love to get some more decorations for our porch as well.

Decor Upgrade

Decor Upgrades and DIY.  We are continuously working to improve the look of our home.  We recently purchased some new furniture for the living room, I’ve finally got it looking great.  We also started working in our kitchen last year, and I have just a few minor things left on my list, and we will have that room complete.  And as I discussed a few days ago, we are in the process of going some upgrades to our bathroom, which are going to be dramatic!

Samsung Galaxy On5

The great thing about purchasing a phone or making home improvements is that you aren’t just throwing money away on a whim or for a short term reward; you are actually investing in your home and yourself for the long term benefit, and that is something I always feel good about.
