TracFone adds new $10 Global card to its prepaid international offerings
America Movil’s US subsidiary TracFone Wireless has improved its international prepaid offering by adding a new $10 Global card. The new international card can be used only with active service. With it, customers can call mobile and landline numbers anywhere in the world.
New TracFone $10 Global card does not add service days so it can be added as many times as needed. It works with any plan. The balance on this card expires in 180 days from the last day of use or 30 days after inactive service. The new international card includes countries that are not covered by TracFone’s Basic International Long Distance offer. The basic offer allows calling more than 100 international countries including mobile phones at Mexico, Canada and more at the price of a local call. Customers can dial two access numbers depending on where they are calling from: US 1-800-706-3839 or from Alaska, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands 305-938-5673. However, it’s important to know that TracFone will deduct minutes even if call does not go through.
In addition to a new $10 Global card and Basic International offer, TracFone also includes International Neighbors option. This option allows calling family and friends in Mexico also at a local call rate and it’s limited to three phone numbers. Also, the chosen members of family and friends (three of them) should be given these numbers so that they can call back the customer on TracFone phone also at a cost of a local call.
TracFone customers can also use a Frequent Numbers service that provides them with ten U.S. 1-800 phone numbers for calling more than 60 international countries. All these international features are available to TracFone customers at no additional charge.
With New TracFone $10 Global card, customers can call any international destination in the world at certain per minute rate: 0.0126 for Canada, $0.0538 for Mexico mobiles, $0.0142 for United Kingdom and so on. The full list with countries and rates is available at tracfoneild.com.
