Tracfone users add minutes to their phones with the On Demand option on each phone. Users who do not want to use this option can purchase minutes at retail locations or at Tracfone's official website.
Purchasing minutes with the On Demand feature requires the Tracfone owner to sign up for the service. Users can then purchase minutes directly from the phone.
Owners who do not wish to store credit card information can opt to buy minutes for their phone at more than 80,000 stores around the United States. A list of locations is available on the Tracfone website.
Owners have the option of registering at Tracfone.com and purchasing directly from the site. They can also activate their phones and check available minutes using the site.
