It’s about that time of year again – tax time – and that also means (for many) that it’s almost time for your tax return. I don’t know about you, but tax returns can usually result in some interesting purchases. Everything from extravagant dinners to cinnamon pretzel fueled shopping sprees can result from a return. But this year I decided that the best thing for me to do with my bit of extra money was to upgrade my phone – luckily I’m already a dedicated Walmart Family Mobile user, so I knew going in that their plans – including Walmart Family Mobile’s NEW 4G LTE service & Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web plan – and phones were going to be the best way for me to get the most out of my money!

I decided, after much deliberation, that the best phone for me would be the ZTE ZMAX phablet. So I headed to my local Walmart, and after spending an appropriate amount of time in the candy aisle and ogling new DVD’s, picked up the ZTE ZMAX as well as the SIM card. As a blogger and a student I really need a phone that can do more than keep up with me, I need a phone that can make my life a little easier – and so far the ZTE ZMAX has been that phone.

I would like to think that the ghosts of tax returns past played a convincing roll in my decision to upgrade my phone this year. You see, last years tax return may have ended with the purchase of a old fashioned hot dog roller – an item that has collected dust and seen use only once. The ZTE ZMAX is definitely one of the items I own that will never have a chance to collect dust – it’s with me everywhere I go! I take it to school, when I travel, when I’m out during the weekends, when I’m at home, and because it boasts an 8 megapixel camera I also use this instead of my DSLR to take product photos! It’s easily the most impressive tool in my electronic arsenal right now because it full of great features and does so much.

On top of it all, Walmart Family Mobile’s NEW 4G LTE service – which clocks in at $29.88/month (for the first line) for Unlimited Talk, Text & Data which includes up to 500MB of 4G LTE data – is so good that I’m constantly able to fully enjoy all the functions of my new phone!

Want to make the most out of your money? Well, my ZTE ZMAX and Walmart Family Mobile 4G LTE service is easily one of my smartest investments. The service powers my phone and is kind to my wallet, and the phone is something that I carry with me everywhere, so it’s a small investment that positively impacts my life on a daily basis. I love them and I can’t recommend them enough!

There’s nothing like starting off the school year with new supplies – this year I’m not only headed to a new school, but I’ve also picked up a new phone that I just adore! I’ve been with Walmart Family Mobile for over a year now, and in my experience it has been the best cheap(est) wireless plan. So when I decided I was in need of a new phone for school, Walmart was the first place I looked. Luckily for me, I spotted the Nokia Lumia 521 on rollback for only $69.88 (down from $99.99)! With the price of textbooks already adding up, I was super excited to find an amazing looking smartphone at such a great price!

The Nokia 521 has already become a crucial part of my routine. I desperately needed a phone that I could rely on to keep me organized and on point, and the Nokia is doing just that. It uses the same Windows Live Tiles that I have on my laptop and I’ve been able to sync much of the information that I need – which is essential for any student, I think. Speaking of needs, I do have to tell you the sound quality is quite good – I need something sharp and clear to wake me up on schooldays and this manages to do the job. I’m telling you I’ve slept through hurricanes (Sandy, Irene, I’m looking at you) – but I haven’t been able to sleep through the alarm on this!

I love having the Lumia 521 near me at all times, it’s great for doing a quick search on the traffic conditions or looking up everything from definitions to concepts of chemistry. I even look up youtube videos of how to do a quick hairstyles in the morning when my hair looks awful and I’m running out of time. I think being back in school nowadays really demands a phone that can keep up with students – something fast and effective. And there’s definitely a need for an affordable wireless plan.

That’s where Walmart Family Mobile comes in, with an Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web service plan for only $34.88 – you really can’t go wrong. I paid a crazy amount of money for textbooks this semester, I’m glad that I can go back to school in style with a sharp looking phone without having to break the bank!
