I still tell any who cares to listen or save some money on their cell phone bills, “why pay more for what you can get for less?” I left contract plans a few years ago and I’ve never looked back since then. One can never go wrong with the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan, it comes with Unlimited Talk, Text, & Data (*Includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE† data then 2G) plus a free VUDU movie credit every month ($7 value) per line for $49.88. Since Walmart Family Mobile bills you later, you only have to pick a phone of your choice from the vast collection of affordable smartphones (A smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy On5 will set you back $69 on rollback price(Regular price was: $119.00)) or you can bring your own device, and get your SIM Kit for only $19.88.
We have two boys, a 2-year-old and a 1-year-old, my wife and I have our regular 9 to 5 jobs and somehow squeeze in the time to manage our website and the YouTube channel. With the kids in the equation, going on dates with my wife alone will need weeks of planning and keeping our fingers crossed hoping that our plans fall in place. Us having our family movie nights powered by our Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan saves us a lot since we already budgeted on what to spend our extra tax income, any other savings we can get is welcome in our household. To be totally frank with you, we’ve not been to the movies in while, since we get free movies every month from plan, we just wait for the new movies to be available on Vudu’s new rental section. Thanks to the Walmart Family Mobile Plus Plan for the free VUDU movie credit every month ($7 value) per line, with 4 lines in our household, the free movie comes in pretty handy for our in-house movie night dates. Interestingly enough, you are not mandated to watch your free Vudu movie on your mobile devices, you can enjoy your free VUDU movie on a Roku, computer, a smart TV, your gaming console and host of other compatible streaming devices.
Step One: Set Up the Location
As a tech guy, I try my best to make the house comfortable for our movie date nights. A few smart lights, a smart tv, smart thermostat, Amazon Echo Voice assistant and the Google Home Voice assistant on my Samsung Galaxy On5 I bought at Walmart for $69 on rollback price (Regular price was: $119.00) can help cast movies to your smart TV, automate your home and sets the mood for our movie nights with a couple of voice commands without interrupting any fun time. My wife set up the snack area with some DIY items from our storage room and lit up the place with LED strips.
The next step is shopping for snacks, my wife is always in charge of this, unlike the restrictions at movie theaters, we get to enjoy any snack, drink, wine or meal of our choice. With all the food and snack in the world to choose from, we always have our regular pretzels, popcorn, and sodas, what’s a movie without something crunchy and salty to munch on and a bubbly drink to wash it all down?
Before we settle in for the in-house movie date, my wife and I work as a team to put the boys to sleep. When we’re sure they are both fast asleep, we get the drinks, snack or food ready. I then ask the Amazon Echo voice assistant to set the temperature in the living room and ask it to dim and set the living room light to our movie theme.
Step Four: Pick a Movie and Enjoy
Walmart Family Mobile keeps pushing the boundaries when it comes to the affordability of their devices, pricing, and services. Being affordable is not the only cool part, the fun part of using the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan in our household is, getting to enjoy free movies on VUDU every month. The best part is spending quality time with the family and watching the free VUDU movies on the new UHD 4K TV. Interestingly enough, you are not mandated to watch your free Vudu movie on your mobile devices, you can enjoy your free VUDU movie on a Roku, computer, a smart TV, your gaming console and host of other compatible streaming devices.
