When you enter the code on the phone, it shows you that your minutes were tripled. I bought the 60 minute card, entered the code, it added the 60 minutes, and then an additional 120 minutes. It's automatic, the phone somehow knows you're on the triple minutes for life plan.

Well, they send you a pin number via email within an hour more or less, sometimes more sometimes less.
You then go to their website at http://www.tracfone.com.
You should have account there, then you go to the area marked "add airtime."
A screen will open and it will ask for the pin number. Copy, and paste this pin into this area. It will confirm the telephone number you wish to upload the time to.
After confirmation of the acceptance of the pin, you will hear a small musical note from your telephone that should be switched on. You will see an update of the minutes you have, as well as your new availability date.
I have double minutes, and when I complete this process, I receive double minutes. I am sure yours will do as your tripple minutes indicate, but if not, I am sure customer service will gladly assist you.
The Triple Minute feature is based with your phone. Not sure why you're skeptical about the feature though. I've been using a Triple Minute phone since last November and triple minutes apply instantly when I add minutes. Some airtime cards don't triple though. For example the " 1 year card with 800 minutes" says in small print that it's already a 'double minute' value so it's not going to triple on your phone. Read the features of the airtime card before you buy it.
