500 Free Alltel Minutes

Ryan Newman, driver of the #12 Alltel Dodge, does a burnout after winning the 50th NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Daytona 500 at Daytona International Speedway on February 17, 2008 in Daytona Beach, Florida

This is one solicited (aka please post this for us) press release I want to share with y’all, because it involves free stuff (which is always good). Plus, I’m a Ryan Newman fan and that was the most smoke-filled I ever remember seeing a car (that wasn’t on fire) and posting the picture (click it) is just too much fun.

Alltel Wireless has a promotion to offer 500 free minutes to new customers that switch to Alltel and existing customers that add a line of service. The offer runs from February 22 – 24 in Alltel stores, online at shopalltel.com or by calling Alltel at 1-800-ALLTEL-1.

On Feb. 24, Alltel will launch the second annual “My Circle 500.” This national text-to-win promotion supports Alltel’s exclusive “My Circle” calling feature and puts race fans in the driver’s seat for a chance to win up to $500,000.

On Feb.19, the Alltel Racing Podcast Series returned for its third season. The weekly podcast, providing an inside look at the No. 12 Alltel Team, is available at www.alltelracing.com.

While checking out the alltelracing.com site I saw they have some cool Ryan Newman swag for free on their downloads page. Cell phone and desktop wallpaper, ringtones, games and chat icons. So if nothing else, or you’re like me and use a different cellular network and don’t plan on switching, getcha some Ryan Newman for free.

Plus, since I have never had Alltel service, if you have…let’s put them on the block. Have you been happy with it or not?”
