Thanks to Straight Talk for sponsoring this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own. For the past year I’ve been working with Straight Talk to promote their GENIUS smart phone plans and I’m officially a convert. Straight Talk is all about making things simple and easy when it comes to your cell phone plan. Hooray! Service is outstanding and even better, no contract is required and the price simply cannot be beat.
Keeping in Touch with Kids When they Go Back to School & Sports
School is starting and this means all those after school activities for kids will be ramping up – from the soccer team to science club to band practice to swim team – Parents like me practically need to design a spreadsheet to help them juggle schedules for each individual child and coordinate carpools to make it all happen. Especially when you need to be in 3 places at one time to get your kids where they need to go between 4 and 7 pm every weeknight!
With today’s high tech world, kids love their cell phones to communicate with friends and to call Mom or Dad when they need to get picked up somewhere. Long gone are the days of calling cards and pay phones! So honestly, come the tween and teen years, I think giving kids a cell phone is almost a necessity and a way to make kids and parents feel more secure that everyone can communicate as a family.
And when it comes to needing phones for kids, Straight Talk has everything I think kids – and their parents – need. Especially given that NO CONTRACT or HIDDEN FEE element too!
They’ve got a $45 unlimited* talk, text, and data plan along with a $30 plan that still offers unlimited text with 1500 minutes of talk – perfect for kids.
You can check out the Straight Talk online shop here and in-store at Walmart there’s a huge selection of phones – including my personal favorite the iPhone 6 plus.

5 GB of High Speed Data for all $45 StraightTalk Plans
We all know that kids LOVE texting & surfing the Web to browse for videos and all other kinds of data. Did you know that all Straight Talk users on the $45 30-day plan will now receive more high speed data? With no exceptions, every user on that plan will now have 5GB high speed data* to enjoy – this is up from the 3GB they were offered before. Brilliant! Especially as I know my kids sometimes snap up my phone and before I know it are watching Netflix shows and using up all my data!
