Tis the Season, Tax Season that Is…

By Danielle Babbington

The holidays have come and gone; we’ve packed away the decorations, which can only mean one thing…time to start gathering your receipts and organizing all your forms to get ready to file your taxes! According to an online survey from last year, about 85 percent of Americans expect to get a tax refund and 35 percent plan to spend all or part of it. Now comes the big question, if you are part of that 85 percent – what do you do with that refund?

Check out the list below from Money Crashers on 10 Smart Ways to Spend Your Tax Refund Money Wisely:
  1. Start or increase Your Emergency Fund
  2. Pay Off High-Interest Debt
  3. Spend It on Something You Need
  4. Start Itemized Savings Accounts
  5. Refinance Your Mortgage or make Home Improvements
  6. Invest in a Tax-Sheltered Account
  7. Invest in a Taxable Account
  8. Give to Charitable Causes
  9. Get that Business Up and Running
  10. Spend It on Something You Want
If number 10 is where you see your refund best spent, why not consider a new no-contract smartphone from Boost Mobile? Boost Warp 4G is on sale, just in time for Tax Season, Jan. 27 through March 15 for $50 off. With the discount, priced at $149.99, Boost Warp 4G comes loaded with a 4.5-inch HD highly-durable display and an 8-megapixel camera. Boost Warp 4G is affordable for those who want a premium LTE Android™ smartphone experience at a real value. A 1.2GHz dual-core processor and blazing fast 4G LTE access make for fast browsing and multitasking capabilities.

Boost Warp 4G can be paired with Boost Mobile’s no annual contract $55 Android Monthly Unlimited plan with Shrinking Payments. For every six on-time payments, the cost of Boost Mobile’s Monthly Unlimited plan shrinks by $5, eventually getting down to as low as $40 a month for unlimited nationwide talk, text and picture messaging, Web1, email and calls to 411. Payments do not need to be consecutive to qualify for the next savings milestone.

Boost Warp 4G is available at Boost Mobile’s exclusive retail stores, select independent wireless dealer locations nationwide and at www.boostmobile.com/warp4G with free shipping.
