PlatinumTel offers free minutes through Facebook

Virgin Mobile. In exchange for viewing advertisements and completing surveys, users could earn a certain number of free minutes per month. That program ended last year, though, much to the chagrin of Virgin users everywhere. That might be gone for good, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other programs out there. PlatinumTel has recently started one, in conjunction with Embee Mobile. It integrates with Facebook, adding another level of interactivity. Dubbed PlatinumTel Mobile Wallet, users can obtain Embee Mobile Minutes by completing surveys and other offers. Those minutes can then be exchanged for minutes on PlatinumTel mobile plans. In other words, it works much like SugarMama, with the added aspect of the Facebook integration. PlatinumTel subscribers can check out the Embee Mobile Facebook app here.]]>

    “There is no such thing as a free lunch”, at least thats what they tell me in business school lol. The minutes with these plans aren’t free, you have to use your valuable time working to later attain the coverage. Personally I would rather spend 10 pennies a minute with net10 then spend hours doing surveys.

    Gregory, now you can spend only 5 cents a minute to talk, 2 cents a message to text and only 10 cents per MB for mobile web with PlatinumTel. Net10 has great coverage, but so does PlatinumTel. PlatinumTel’s rate totally beats any other prepaid pay as you go rates.
