A few days removed from the holidays and only weeks away from the beginning of Tax Season, Walmart has started to slash prices on several devices on Tracfone Inc's subsidiaries Straight Talk, Total Wireless, Family Mobile, and Simple Mobile. The price changes took effect on 1/5/2020. Some more device changes are expected soon.
- Galaxy A20 lowered to $179 from $229 (Only on StraightTalk.com)
- LG Journey lowered to $49 from $99
- LG Solo lowered to $69 from $99
- LG Stylo 5 lowered to $129 from $199
- Moto E6 lowered to $49 from $69
Walmart Family Mobile
- LG Journey $49 from $79
- Galaxy A10E $99 from $139
- Galaxy A20 $179 from $229 (Only on Totalwireless.com)
- Galaxy A10e $99 from $139
- LG Solo $69 from $99
- A10E $99 from $139
The Galaxy A20 dropped in price from $229 to $179. This offer is only at the Straight Talk and Total Wireless websites. I expect these prices to reflect at WalMart's, as well as in-store in the very very near future.

The A10e is still $99 on Straight Talk. TracFone usually prices phones on Straight Talk & Total Wireless wireless equally. For some reason, recently, this has not been the case in particular for the Galaxy A10e until now. Family Mobile pricing is separate & Simple Mobile pricing is usually separate on most devices, but the A10e matches across-the-board this time around.
You can still pick up a Space Grey iPhone 6S for $99, and Space Grey 6S+ for $149 on Straight Talk & Total Wireless. Family Mobile only has the Rose Gold 6S for $99 in-store. These were prices on Black Friday, which returned a few days after the holiday. Other excellent options are the Moto G7 Optimo ($99) & Moto G7 Optimo Maxx ($129). Both Optimo phones came out not long before the Moto E6. However, these devices are far superior to the Moto E6 in every...single...aspect!

I love what TracFone inc has been doing the last 6 months with its brands, specifically with their flurry of new devices, their prices, dozens of plan changes, and new features.
With Virgin Mobile ceasing operations, TracFone may be something to consider, should you choose not to stick around for the Boost Mobile migration.
