I can’t believe it’s back to school time, already. The summer was barely here and now it’s gone already! I’ve mentioned before that we have two nieces returning to college as well as a nephew and our oldest son starting college. I wanted to do something special for each of them but with there being four of them I couldn’t spend a fortune times four! Knowing teens and their addiction to their phones I decided that cheap wireless plans with a new phone would be the perfect gift!
We went to our local Walmart store to get some supplies to make my niece a gift basket. I had a few things at home that I wanted to include that I knew she would love, but there were still several things I needed to pick up.
Our first stop was the Walmart Family Mobile section of our local Walmart for the phone. It was easy to find right by the register! I decided that the Alcatel One Touch Fierce cell phone from Walmart Family Mobile would be perfect for my niece as she was returning to school! It was on rollback for just $99.88! With it being a smartphone, it allows her to keep track of her schedule and check the web quickly for things when she is out and about. She’s gone without a cell phone for a little while as she’s been trying to save as much as possible to put towards college costs so I knew this would be the perfect gift for her! It’s a smartphone with a cheap wireless plan that gives her unlimited talk, text and web for just $34.88 per month! Now that rollback price is one that we can all get used to!
I took the phone out and got it all ready for her to use before I added it to the gift basket. I had to check out the features myself to see how great the Alcatel One Touch Fierce really is! The screen is a generous 4.5″ and has a great quality when viewing websites. I love the phone because it’s a great value, the cheap wireless plans that Walmart has make it even more appealing! If my niece isn’t able to afford her monthly plan, it’s not so much that I can’t help her out on occasion. I love being able to keep in touch with her, have her send photos so the kids can see her (they adore her and miss her when she’s not around!), and give her easy access to all of the family through Facebook posts!
Now that the college kids are heading back to the dorms, it’s time to make up the gift baskets and the care packages! Be sure to get in on the cheap wireless plans and purchase a phone for that student in your life to keep in touch with the family! It’s a great deal and it’s a fabulous gift for any college student!
What will you add to your gift basket?
Thank you to #CollectiveBias and Walmart Family Mobile for inspiring this amazing gift basket for my niece! #Phones4School are the perfect gift!
