Putting Holiday Cash to Good Use With AT&T GoPhone

DISCLOSURE: This post is sponsored. All products mentioned and reviewed on this page are compliments of AT&T. All opinions of the products are my own.

It’s a few weeks after Christmas and if you have middle schoolers in the house like me, then they more than likely received cash and gift cards for Christmas. My 8th grader, especially, leaned toward asking for gift cards this Christmas.

If you are looking for a great way to put your kids’ Christmas gift cards or monetary gifts to good use, consider getting a AT&T GoPhone. Not quite ready to commit to a full-time plan, just yet, but your tween or teen is convinced they are the last kid in their school without a phone? AT&T GoPhone offers great flexible first phone plans.

For years wireless plans have traditionally been very strict but what family wants to feel tied down to a strict plan, especially with changing needs? Maybe you’re not quite ready for your tween to have a full-time phone. Maybe they just “need” a phone for the summer away at camp. AT&T offers Americans the ability to break free from annual contracts and take a more flexible approach to wireless plans. AT&T GoPhone prepaid plans give you the ability to choose from a variety of plans that fit your needs and monthly budget. We tested out an AT&T GoPhone last year and it was the perfect first plan for my younger daughter, who was 9 at the time.
