Small List compiled for Flip phone service. Regular service with unlimited data and all to come.

1.Tracfone-All Carriers $20 Talk/Text 1GB ($30 for first 6 months)
1b. Unlimited talk and text, no data $15/month ($10 with auto pay)

2.Mobi-Verizon $10 (Additional $5 off the 1st three months)

3.Tello-Tmobile $8 , US Mobile.

4.HelloMobile-Tmobile $5 (first 2 months for $5)

                 -EXPLAINED A BIT MORE IN DETAIL-
Tracfone Wireless- (CDMA/GSM Verizon/T-Mobile/AT&T)
First 6 months at $30 plus taxes.
Pay for the first 2 months $15 each month with autopay, then use reward points for the next 4 months. Use Referral code OOAB-E354 to get you 8,000 points. You must activate and set up the rewards within 14 days of activating Phone service.
  They limit 5 uses per month, so feel free to PM before using if you want to confirm they work for this month, as well they seem to be changing the referral code after every use. So feel free to post in the thread or message me for a new code.
       The points will only kick in after 60 days of service(hence the reason for keeping paid service for 60 days) the points will kick in getting you 8,000 Points, which is enough for 4 months free. You can redeem 2,000($20) increments for a free month of service and do that for a total of 4 months free.
  Now you must turn off auto pay after the first 2 months in order for the free 4 months that you added to kick in.  If you don't turn off auto pay it will continue billing your credit card and you will not get those free months until you turn off auto pay.
 Works on CDMA or GSM.

 Mobi Wireless- (Verizon/CDMA)
 $10 a month. With a referral code you can get another $5 off the 1st three months which I can give you. You need to sign up in the first week for the referral bonus to kick in.

Stolen credit cards maybe? I have been in the telecom carrier business for a long time, never seen any official discounts any where close to this.
Maybe they buy prepaid phones that have activation pins attached to them and they sell them separately?

You have someone I can buy direct from? How do they get them?
No. I just messaged the guy on eBay. I don't know the source. Although they all seem to get it from the same source since all the sellers go up and down in price together.

Definitely fishy. The two reasons why I defend myself is because number one the guy that I buy it from is Jewish so I sort of rely on him that it's from a somewhat legitimate source.

Second, if it is from stolen credit cards why do I only see discounts on Verizon cards. Why not Att or any other company? Also it seems to be mainly the $40 cards.

I think they sell those in eBay too. I also think those are bound to new IMEI activations though.

Looking for a plan for my son with a couple GB of data and a low-mid range android phone (maybe pixel 3a?). Cheapest option.

Alternatively I can add him to my verizon plan, upgrade my phone with a galaxy s10 (which I have to do anyway) and get a 2nd one with $750 off.

You might be able to add him on to a cheaper line of service, but still on your family plan, and get a family plan discount. I know prepaid Verizon you can.
