What up what up frugal gangsters! My new favorite wireless carrier just released their latest (cheap-as-hell) smart phone, and because they think budgets are sexy too they’re shipping me two to give away to y’all today :) Along with 3 months of free service!
(How’s that for frugal?)
I know I’ve been mentioning Republic Wireless a lot over the months, but that really is only because I feel like I’ve stumbled across a gem here and I want to make sure y’all know about them too. If you’re happy with your own carrier and/or are annoyed with these updates, here are two other giveaways I’m running on my other sites you may find more suitable ;)
Or, better yet, try and win one of these for a friend or loved one! So *they* can try and convince you to move over after they rave about it, haha… j/k. (kind of)
Here’s a reminder of why I’m obsessed w/ Republic Wireless
- No contracts
- Cheap as balls rate plans ($5-$40/mo max)
- Decent choices of smartphones
- You can save $100+ if you’re coming from the iPhone like we were.
The only downsides are you’d have to break our contract you’re currently with to switch (possibly costing you money) and you have to buy the phone outright from Republic Wireless. Which makes their latest phone we’re giving away today even better as it’s only $99!
(Fyi, I have noticed a few dropped calls here and there and a little wonky connection at times (it runs mainly over wifi and the Sprint network) but we’re two months in so far and I don’t plan on switching back. It’s not for everyone, but I’m done giving away an extra $100+ to other carriers for nothing.)
Here are some facts on the new Moto E
- It’s only $99
- It’s a smartphone.
- Has 3G
- 4GB Internal Memory
- Up to 32GB of expandable memory with micro SD card
- Android™ KitKat® 4.4.4
- 5MP Fixed Focus Camera
- 4.3″ Edge-to-Edge HD Display
I’m not a techie so can’t add much more than that (and I haven’t personally tested this one out), but here’s a 2 min video on it that shares more if you’re interested. To me most smartphones do the same stuff: call, email, apps, etc ;) Here’s their website with more info too: Moto E

Bonus tip: Find a good "balance transfer" offer to help pay off debt faster!
If you’ve been making payment after payment (on time) and still haven't been able to get your debt under control, snatching up a good balance transfer credit card offer may be the ticket to try. That’s where in order to gain your business - credit card companies will let you transfer your existing debt to a new card and let you pay ZERO PERCENT interest on it. Saving you tons every month!
What's the catch? Usually balance transfer cards charge a fee (around 3% of your debt balance) to let you transfer your balance to their 0% interest offer. But we've found a great credit card that will let you do a balance transfer absolutely free. Click here to learn more and see if you qualify!
PS: If you don't trust yourself with another credit card, ignore this! This strategy is to help you get out of debt quicker, not risk adding more to it.
