Tracfone brands exclaim that they have a "sweet tax savings" sale going on right now. Customers can pick up a Samsung Galaxy A10e in stores for $49.99. QVC meanwhile, has a Tracfone airtime and A10e phone bundle available for $99.96 or $89.96 for new customers with use of the promo code WELCOME at checkout.
Total Wireless Stores $49.99 Samsung Galaxy A10e Offer Fine Print
This deal is for a limited time only, and is scheduled to be available until 3/31/2020 or while supplies last. It is for new customers only who port into either a Total Wireless or Simple Mobile plan priced $50 or higher. It is also available to new customers who port to Tracfone's $25 or $30 smartphone plan. Those already subscribed to a Tracfone brand cannot get this promo.
This offer is available in stores only. Currently, there are only 205 Total Wireless stores open in 23 states nationwide. Wave7 Research notes that the number of open stores has been steadily declining with each passing month. You can see if there is one available in your location by using Total Wireless's store locator.
QVC Tracfone $99.96 Samsung Galaxy A10e With Phone Plan Bundle Details
This offer is being marketed as a QVC2 BIG Deal. According to QVC:
"The QVC2 Big Deal® is the hottest value of the day on QVC2℠. It could be anything… something for you or your home. Something you’ve never seen before or something you just can’t do without. Catch it on QVC2 at 9pm ET nightly, but only for a limited time or while supplies last, so get it before it’s gone. That’s the QVC2 Big Deal."
Given the language used there, it's possible that this will be a one day only sale. The fine print for the offer does suggest it may be available until 2/13/2020 at 11:59PM EST.
Besides the phone, this bundle deal comes with a Tracfone annual plan that includes a total of 1,500 minutes, 1,500 text messages, and 1,500 MB of data. Service is provided on the Verizon network.
Also included with the offer is a car charger and a phone case. QVC says that if sold separately, the total cost of each item individually would come to $347.60. QVC's estimate of the savings being offered is probably a bit inflated, but the savings is definitely legitimate. The phone plan alone regularly sells directly from Tracfone for $118.75 with auto-refill enabled. The Samsung Galaxy A10e is sold unlocked directly from Samsung for $179.99 or $129.99 with eligible trade-in. Adding the total price up of each item there ($118.75 + $179.99) gives a total cost of $298.74. The phone case and car charger would likely at most add about $10-$15 dollars more onto that total. So Tracfone customers that are new QVC shoppers interested in this phone and plan bundle by my estimates would save up to $223.78 when they purchase the bundle and use code WELCOME at checkout.
QVS's sister brand, HSN currently has the same bundle offer available but at a price of $119.99.
