Update 7/24/15: Overnight TracFone raised the price of the 750 MB card back up to $20. Walmart Still has it for $15.
TracFone data rolls over and never expires as long as the account stays active. That makes TracFone data a great alternative to the "use it or lose it" data buckets that are typical with postpaid and prepaid "Unlimited" plans. Most operators require you to pay for unlimited talk and text, whether you need it or not, to get reasonably priced data. Then they encourage you to buy a plan with a bigger "use it or lose it" data bundle than you need to make sure you don't run out of data.
With pay as you go plans like TracFone's you only pay for the data, minutes or texts you actually use. The problem with pay as you go data has traditionally been high per MB pricing. 10¢/MB ($102.40/GB) is typical. TracFone's new 4 GB data card costs just $12.50/GB (1.22¢/MB) which is by far the best price I've seen yet for rollover data. Of course you do have to factor in the cost of keeping a TracFone account active which is about $6.67 per month using a $19.99 top-up every 90 days. The $19.99 isn't a total loss however as it adds 180 voice minutes, 180 texts and 180 MB of data to the account, all of which rollover.
It looks like TracFone is now by far the best deal for anyone who needs only a modest amount of data, voice minute and texts per month. Plus, TracFone smartphones and BYOP use AT&T or Verizon, the two networks with the best coverage nationwide.
