up to 62% cash back on Tracfone, Straight Talk and Simple Mobile

I just noticed that Ebates is offering "up to" 62% cash back on Straight talk.     And I checked and their related companies Tracfone and Simple Mobile also have "up to" 62% back today.

The terms on the 62% cash back vary and are limited.    See the Ebates page for each vendor for the specifics.     But generally the 62% cash back is not available on the more expensive phones.   

EDIT to add :   cash back does NOT apply to purchases of just airtime.

Even so if you pick a good phone and plan combo you can find a  good deal right now after cash back.

The examples below are theoretical and I have not tried them.   

An example with Tracfone would be :  a reconditioned Samsung Galaxy J3 Luna Pro for $24.99 and the 1 year plan for $125 totaling $149.99.   After the 62% cash back net cost would be $57 
Note that the Tracfone terms are not totally clear to me.    It says 62% cash back on phones under $100, accessors and airtime.   If you buy a $25 phone and $125 airtime plan then I'm not sure if that falls under the "less than $100" entirely or not.   So this example deal MIGHT not work, depending on the exact terms of the cashback. 

Another alternative with Tracfone would be : reconditioned ZTE Zfive 2 for $9.99 plus the $35 two month 1GB plan.   This has a $4 discount as well so cost at check out is $40.99.   After 62% cash back the net cost is $15.58.

An example for Simple Mobile  :   Samsung Galaxy On5 phone for $19.99 plus a 3GB one month plan for $25 would be $44.99.   After 62% cash back the net cost would be $17.07
