Straight Talk Increases Costs Of Extended Plans And Discounts Them Again For A Limited Time
TracFone’s subsidiary Straight Talk has discounted costs of its 3, 6 and 12 months plans again during this holiday season. Just like few weeks ago, for a limited time, the 3-month unlimited plan costs $120, the 6-month unlimited plan is $230 and a year plan can be purchased for $440. However, this time discounts on these plans are greater than last time since their costs are now higher. Straight Talk increases costs of 3, 6 and 12 months plans to $135, $270 and $540, respectively.
The $135/3-month plan was previously available for $130, which is a $5 increase. The $270/6-month plan was available for $255, which is a $15 increase and the $540/1 year plan was available for $495, which is a $45 increase.
Due to a new higher cost of Straight Talk’s extended plans, savings are bigger too. With a purchase of a 3-month plan for promotional $120 price, customers will save $15 (was $10 off); purchasing a 6-month unlimited plan for $230 will save them $40 (was $25 off) while saving on buying a $540/one year plan would be $100 per year (was $55 off).
Promotional $5 discount on monthly $45 unlimited and $60 unlimited international plans when customers enroll in auto pay is still available.

Also, customers on the $30 All You Need plan who enroll in auto pay will get 50% more data every month.
