Customers may purchase more airtime TracFone by purchasing airtime cards at a retailer or buying airtime on TracFone.com. Another option is to sign up with TracFone's On Demand service, which enables users to purchase airtime through their phones.
When adding airtime to a TracFone, it is possible to get bonus minutes via promo codes, which are five digit coupon codes that can add anywhere from 20 to 250 additional minutes to an airtime card. These codes are easy to find, either through promotional mailings from TracFone itself or coupon clipping websites that post the codes on a regular basis. There is a limitation to using promo codes, however, as each one is only good when purchasing a specific number of airtime minutes. For example one promo code may only be usable on a 60-minute airtime card, while another code may only work on a 120-minute card.
In addition to promo codes, TracFone users may also be able to get bonus minutes by purchasing phones that automatically double or triple the value of airtime purchased. For example, a 60-minute airtime card added to a "Double Minutes for Life" phone adds 120 minutes for 90 days of service, and a 120-minute card added to a "Triple Minutes for Life" phone adds 360 minutes.
