Republic Wireless Motorola E Giveaway! (x2)

by J. Money - Last updated October 31, 2014

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 ;)

  1. A brand new 3/4 oz Silver Canadian Grey Wolf coin
  2. A kick-ass Tuft & Needle mattress

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

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

moto e republic wireless

  • 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

 

Like it? Want to own it?

I’ve got two of these bad boys to give out this week, and each comes with 3 months of free service which is an additional $75 value. You have two ways to enter:

  1. Sign up to my newsletter (where you’ll get future blog posts emailed to you)
  2. Tell us who you’d give the phone to, and why (you can choose yourself, of course :))

Drop a comment below with your answer/heads up and you’ll be automatically entered to win. We’ll run the giveaway for a week, and then randomly pick a winner shortly there after. (Open to U.S. only)

Good luck! And thanks for reading my blog :)

***GIVEAWAY NOW OVER*** The two lucky winners of the phone and service are…

  1. Crystal Resendiz
  2. Yvette (commenter #463)

Congrats guys! And thanks for participating everyone :) For those who didn’t win, fortunately the phone and service isn’t that expensive so def. consider giving Republic Wireless a shot.

PS: Don’t forget about the other giveaways too: Silver coin and Mattress – they both end this week.

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.

I’d like to give the smartphone to my nanny to appreciate everything she has done to my kids. She really deserves this for her hard work and dedication to job. This simple thing is much appreciated. :D

2 Chris @ Flipping a Dollar October 22, 2014 at 6:40 am

I don’t need one, but just wanted to chime in. We had at before switching go RW and we had dropped calls on their service too! The times I do have the most issues is when I have poor cell service, but again, this is true for any provider.

3 Dan October 22, 2014 at 6:49 am

I switched to republic and it works great for me. Little issues here and there but i had issues with AT&T. I think we just notice it more with republic because we are still evaluating it.

I’d probably keep the phone just in case i break the one i currently have :)

4 Amanda October 22, 2014 at 6:56 am

I’d like to enter the giveaway! I’d keep the phone for myself. I’ve never had a smartphone, but I’ve read a lot about republic wireless. I’ve been considering trying them out next year. I’m not sure how great the sprint network is near me, but it would be an improvement from what I have now. No cell phone! Mine was stolen in July and I still haven’t replaced it. Just kind of enjoying not having the monthly bill and waiting until I move into a better living situation before I pick up another contract.

Because its a family forum, I will only say that Sprint can bite it. Republic wireless looks to be a good deal and it definitely fits the budget. I use Walmart’s Straight Talk. Same thing; you have to buy the phone, some cheap some expensive and then its $45 a month, no contract, 3g data per month etc. In our area it uses Verizon towers which has not let us down.
That’s my 2 bits.

Republic roams on Verizon for free!

Reply

7 Chris @ Flipping a Dollar October 23, 2014 at 6:02 am

Walmart straight talk doesn’t offer the WiFi functionality that RW does. You’d have to do a lot of VoIP setup to even get close to the same level, but you can’t mimic the seemless call handovers from WiFi to 3g.

I’ld love to give the phone to my son; he’s just starting out in the world, and wants to get on his own service and off of mine– what better way to start him budgeting right with this phone? Right?

Reply

9 Stefanie @ The Broke and Beautiful Life October 22, 2014 at 7:34 am

I know you said it’s been pretty good with the exception of a few glitches here and there. I’m curious how service is around the country since I tour and travel so much for work. I want to say I’m giving it to myself, but I don’t know if I’m ready to take the leap, haha.

Reply

10 David October 22, 2014 at 5:24 pm

I’ve had Republic for a year and have traveled quite a bit and it works great wherever there is sprint service (or where sprint is bad enough that it switches over to verizon). I even used it out of country in resorts where it could connect to free wifi and everything worked just like I was sitting at home. Best part – since it works on wifi, it WORKS in my home, unlike every cell provider I’ve ever had.

Reply

11 Hannah October 22, 2014 at 7:56 am

I would give the phone to my husband because his service is really spotty in our house, and we have super strong Wi-Fi, so the issue might get resolved by voip. Also, he will keep the same phone until 2025 unless I force him to change, so what better way than winning a phone :)

Reply

12 Elizabeth H October 22, 2014 at 7:58 am

I’d give my phone to my mommy. My dad, my brothers, sister-in-law’s all have iphones and cool gadgets but my mommy doesn’t have anything. She just wants a phone to call HER mommy. I want the phone because my family’s phone bill in total is about $400. It’s a big burden to my dad and I want my own so I can cancel the iphone contract and save my dad a few bucks. Republic Wireless honestly sounded like heaven because of their cheap rates — this current phone bill is a pain!

Reply

13 Robin October 22, 2014 at 8:04 am

I would give my phone to my mom or my sister….they are still with verizon, the evil company that steals all their money for nothing! They don’t even have smart phones and they are still paying a mint for it, argh!

Reply

14 Mrs. WW October 22, 2014 at 8:15 am

Well isn’t this nifty keen! Both Mr. WW and I have cell phones provided through work (score!) and all of our family members seem to be happy with theirs. Honestly, if I were picked I think I’d use it for a giveaway on my blog. I’m very new yet and I need more people to find me because I think I could share a lot with them (maybe even a phone, te he!)

Reply

15 Brian @ Debt Discipline October 22, 2014 at 8:17 am

You’re just full of good news today! I’d take the phone for myself or give it to my mom, she’s still rockin the old school flip phone!

I would give the phone to myself. I currently have a Sprint phone and would much rather pay anything less than $270 for 3 lines :-(

I would keep it for myself. Am currently looking for a new phone and have decided to go with Republic Wireless. I was waiting to see if they would have a deal with the holidays coming up so that I could get one for less money. Now if I could win one, that would be a real deal.

18 Ajani October 22, 2014 at 8:30 am

I would give this phone to my 71 yr old father who still has a flip phone. We went to a family event and my younger cousins gave him a hard time about his phone. It was hilarious but I know he was a little embarrassed too. ha!

I switched to Republic Wireless for 2 months after reading about it on this blog. The service was so poor that I am switching back to my old carrier – another prepaid company, Boost Mobile. I will have a smart phone and service that works for $35/month, phone for $100.

33 Megan October 22, 2014 at 9:17 am

My boyfriend is still using a 12 year old cell phone and paying a ridiculous amount of money for his plan. If he switched to Republic (like I did a month ago), he could actually use the data he is paying for and pay significantly less.

I’ve been shopping around for a smartphone, I don’t have one yet. This would be perfect for me.

I would give the phone to my son. He just started driving and could use the navigation help of a smartphone.

37 Amber October 22, 2014 at 9:28 am

I have been on the fence about Republic Wireless. I would love to choppy $160 cellphone bill down. I have 3 lines right now because my kids are teens. I have recommended it to family members who have difficulty affording their phones because the plan is more affordable and the upfront payment for the phone is a one time investment. Hope I win! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

Reply

38 Shawna October 22, 2014 at 9:28 am

I would keep the phone for myself. Since reading about your switch I’ve wanted to try something different. We are paying over $180 for two people so it’d be great to save a bunch each month.

Reply

39 J.C. October 22, 2014 at 9:35 am

I will give the phone to my wife. She doesn’t have a smartphone and will be thrilled to have something with a camera. We were waiting for her contract to run out, but this would be great! I’ve been curious about Republic Wireless for a while now.

P.S. I just found this blog recently and am enjoying what I’ve read. Keep it up!

40 Virgil1920 October 22, 2014 at 9:43 am

Been with Republic for over a year now …. awesome company and the one time I emailed for help I got a nice reply within a hour. Can’t beat their plans. Republic is just a brand – the vast majority of the no contract players run on Sprint network – virgin, Straight Talk, Boost, Ting …all Sprint because Sprint makes a load of money leasing network capacity. A few run on T-Mobile. Personally I love WiFi …9 times out of 10 better connection than cellular.

Dude, I need to win this phone! Your original post about Republic Wireless has started my hubby and I on a cellphone research journey, and we have concluded that this is the company for us. How awesome would it be to start out our new relationship with this company with a free phone and 3 months of service! Pick me…pick me..pick me!!! :-)

I would give the phone to my oldest son (who is now 7 years old). He is mature for his age and his mother and I worry about him being able to reach us. That phone would be a great gift for him and a sign to him that it is time to take on more responsibility.

Reply

50 Erin @ Journey to Saving October 22, 2014 at 10:38 am

I’ve been with RW since January, but my fiancé hasn’t switched yet, and we were planning on buying the Moto E for him anyway! He’s paying $40/month for a “dumb phone” so it makes sense to get more out of the phone for a little less a month. RW has been okay for the most part – a few hiccups, but better than paying $92/month with Verizon.

I would give it to my boyfriend who still pays way too much for cell phone service! He keeps saying he is going to try one of the cheaper options but hasn’t pulled the trigger yet. I switched to Tracfone and it works great for me. I use about $20 worth of talk/text/data a month and had to pay $100 upfront for the smartphone. It has already paid for itself and now I don’t have a monthly cell phone bill….pay as you go baby!

Reply

54 Zee @ Work To Not Work October 22, 2014 at 11:05 am

So I normally never enter these give away posts since many times they are for things that I don’t really need or want (I have a pretty solid mattress at the moment). But I would actually use this phone for myself. I’m personally pretty proud that I’ve never had a smart phone ever, and people always comment on my phone whenever I happen to pull it out in public, like it’s some relic of the cold war. I always brag about it’s cool features that their smart phones don’t have like a “full slide out keyboard with buttons that don’t always register”

I think that switching phones might be a good experiment, or possibly a very bad one since I might not be able to go back to a regular one after. But perhaps it’s time to move to the 21st century. I was about 5 years late to the “we all have cell phones” party, so perhaps it’s about time I finally showed up to the “I have a smart phone” party.

Reply

55 Kiya October 22, 2014 at 11:15 am

I would give it to my son for his 16th birthday coming up. I don’t have much use for cell phones (I have a REALLY old flip-phone from TracFone that I use for emergencies, etc.)

My son is a good kid and although he has a better phone than I do, it’s still an old TracFone, and he’d like something a bit cooler. Cell phones are not a priority in my budget, and even though the RW service is affordable, the phone itself isn’t.

So if I won it, I’d give it to him. If I don’t win, he can start saving up to buy one on his own! :)

Reply

56 Laura October 22, 2014 at 11:21 am

I would give the phones to myself and my hubby, since we’re relocating to our RETIREMENT HOME , are sick of paying nearly $200 for cell service, and have to change anyway to something more affordable on our new, fixed income budget!

I would give my phone to the commenter that you felt had the most compelling comment and need for this phone. We just resigned with Verizon at about the same price as switching, so we are good for a while. I would want to help someone else out, because that’s what all the cool kids do. :-)

Hello! What a great idea for a giveaway. I’m a Republic Wireless lover and owner of the MotoX.

I wouldn’t hesitate to give the phone to my neighbor, an elderly woman who takes care of her 10 year old grandson and disabled brother. She doesn’t have a cell phone and I know it would make a positive impact in her life.

I’d give the phone to my little sister because she took care of me when I had my transplant and she is still using the same rinky dink phone with a shattered screen from 2010. She deserves to have something nice because she never asks for anything.

Got my daughter a Moto G from Republic Wireless two weeks ago. Got her the $10 plan. Grounded her from the phone for sneaking it to bed, and took the phone with me to work to check it out. Nice little phone, very capable unit.

Now that my wife’s iPhone is starting to poop out (we both own an anceint iPhone 4) she’s next on the list for an upgrade.

I’d love a free one, but Republic Wireless is so affordable, it doesn’t even break my heart if I have to buy it.

Before RW: Two iPhone4 , AT&T dataplan, ~100 month
After RW (our eventual goal): Three moto G/E, 2x$25 plans, 1x$10 plan = 65 month

One more phone for 25 dollars less per month. What’s not to love about that?

139 April October 22, 2014 at 3:15 pm

I’d keep it for myself and, depending upon how well the service works, buy another one for my daughter later. I had an iPhone with Sprint service but just couldn’t afford the bill anymore so I switched to a pay-as-you-go plan with a cheap slider phone straight out of 2005. Well now that we’ve moved halfway across the country, the service on my cheapo phone sucks. So I’ve been shopping around for something new. I miss having a smartphone and my daughter is reaching that age where she wants her own phone, but being able to afford two smartphones on my budget (a single mom and freelance writer) is practically impossible. Republic seems do-able.

140 Robert H. October 22, 2014 at 3:15 pm

She owns her own small business and took in her daughters best friend who was abondon by her family. The friend is 17yrs old. Both girls are on honor roll. She now has 3 phones one which I Gog her on republic to help try save her money. She is looking to move both her kids lines over. I could write a book with all that has happened to heidi and her daughter but you probably wouldn’t believe me with as bad as it is. She constantly donating to abused women shelters, taking care of less fortunate out of her own pocket or out of her business so I would love for something good to happen for her. Just I the last year alone she has had roughly $75,000 in medical bills between her and her daughter. Please give it so someone who really could use it. Her total cell bill was around $250 for all 3 phone lines on alltel.

I’d give it to my mom. I’ve been with Republic since June and I love it. She’s currently on a two year old prepaid plan with U.S. Cellular and a very old Samsung Freeform. It’s pretty overpriced, but she’s hesitant to switch (due to the cost of a new phone). This would be a great way to kick her right into a new service!

145 Josh October 22, 2014 at 3:17 pm

I already have the Moto X on Republic and both phone and service are really great. I’d give the E to my buddy who still has a flip phone on a major carrier for some inexplicable reason. If you’re on the fence about Republic, just try it for the 30 days they give you. It only took me about 4 to decide to port my number.

146 Chad October 22, 2014 at 3:18 pm

I switched my wife and oldest son to Republic from Tracfone. They love it; no more rationing minutes and texts. The overall cost isn’t any more than I was paying monthly for a small number of minutes. If I won, I would give the phone to my younger son so that we can keep in contact when he goes to friends’ houses. Or, I might give it to my dad and get him off the Tracfone.

After a few weeks with my new phone all fears were relieved. I can’t express enough how great republic wireless is! It’s great on my broke college student budget, I always have service, I don’t have to worry about overages, my bill is the same price every month, I can finally understand the breakdown of charges and feel confident I am not being ripped off and intimidated by impossible to read bills, the list goes on! Love the phone love the service LOVE the price.

I would give it to my son so I can reach him when he is off playing at friends’ houses after school. This phone would be an affordable way to keep in touch and stay on top of where he is. Plus it would be sooo nice to be able to be able to reach him if he is slow in walking home for dinner (and save me some new gray hair)!

I’d give it to my granddaughter who would love to have a house phone when her Mother is gone with her cell phone. It’s just a little thing (because whoever is caring for her at the moment always has a phone), but I’d love there to be a ‘house phone’ that she knows how to use when she’d like to be able to get in touch with her Mother …or grandparents! And the $5 plan sounds like something her Mother would love!

I have been looking for a way to switch to republic wireless! we live on a tight budget as a family of 6 on one income. As a stay at home mom I try to find the best way to budget and manage for everyone. My husband works very hard to provide for our children but that means as grown ups we go without. We were hoping by Christmas we might have enough money to buy ourselves phone to switch over but this would be amazing to win as a surprise for my husband to show him how much I appreciate him.
Thank you so much for this offer I hope whoever gets it really appreciate your generosity.

I joined RW almost two years ago to the day, 10/24/2012, and I have loved it ever since! I joined while they were in beta when the only phone option was the Motorola Defy. HUGE improvement once they rolled out the Moto X. I am a huge supporter and have converted much of my family to RW :)

If I won I would give one to my dad because he has never had a cell phone and I was recently telling him about RW and the other to my mom because she recently broke up with her fiance and is going through a financially tough time and this could help her out.

I’d like to win a phone for my sweetheart of a boyfriend. Through some unfortunate circumstances he finds himself in not as great a financial state as he’d like to be in. He’s been working hard to change that and has been trying to pinch pennies to get himself out of debt, by doing things like canceling cable tv and not going out to eat. He currently has my old Defy XT from Republic Wireless, a tolerable but buggy old phone. He’s always doing nice things for me and I’d love to give him a better phone and help him save even more money in the process.

Hello!

My wife just got a Moto G with Republic Wireless.
I have had a Moto X from about launch with them.
The service is great. We love the savings.
With the plan of one phone at $25 and two at $10 we will pay less for all three of us than almost any other carrier for one person.
We now need to get my daughter a Moto E.
This would be a great save on our budget.
I hope we are considered.
Thanks.

I’d give it to my wife. She “hates” cell phones, but lately steals mine all the time to have text chats with our son who is now away at college. I think what’s changed her mind about cellphones was my getting a Republic Wireless phone. We had Verizon for a long time, then T-Mobile. When I heard about RW I couldn’t wait to sign up, but had to wait for the “mid-grade” phone (hey, I’m cheap….errr, I mean frugal). She never used any of my old phones, but now borrows my phone when she leaves the house (I work from home) and grabs it a lot at home just to text with our son. So, I think her opinion is changing. All that said, I know there’s no way we can (or that she would) shell out $100 for a new phone for her. But, a free phone? That we could afford!!

Hello! I’d love to give one of these for my mother-in-law. Her current provider is horrible and her phone is also terrible. I’m not going to name any names. Just a year ago she retired and went through a horrible break up with her bf who was trying to stalk her so she got a restraining order on her. Also, she was supposed to move back into her old house that she was renting and the tenant extended their stay without paying for over 3 months. She finally moved into her place after having to evict her tenant and now to top it all off she is having issues with her phone. This woman desperately needs a new phone and a new service. She deserves it!

I’ve been using Republic Wireless service personally for about a year and it’s saved me well over $50 a month. My friends are constantly drooling when I tell them that I pay $28 a month for unlimited everything. I’ve tried to tug the iphone away from my wife and convince her that she doesn’t need to be tied to AT&T any longer.

If I won the Republic Wireless MotoE, I would give it to my son. He has had a phone through Metro for a few years. But, not only does it cost more…once he started high school this year he gets ZERO reception on that side of the campus. If he walks to the Middle School area or the parking lot, his phone starts pushing through his missed texts and calls….Hours! Later! :( Not very convenient for me when I need to get a message to him.
Sprint’s 3G towers might not have the best reception for the area code my son goes to school in, but there is at least 1 Bar at all times, and texts/calls can be received and made.

I’ve never owned a smartphone.
To message friends, I use (clunky) texting applications on my old iPod. Unfortunately, over the past few months, it’s been having problems, and the ‘fix’ is a replacement of a many years old device. I go to a school where 90% of the students use iPhones, with the other 10% using high end Android devices. It’s always a little embarrassing when someone asks for my number and I ask them to send something to my email instead. With a phone, I’ll be able to do so much. I’ve always wanted to develop applications for Android based devices, but I’ve never had one to test with. I think I’ll use this phone to its fullest, as both a consumer device and a tool for education.

I’d give the phone to my daughter as her first phone. With the $10 plan, I wouldnt need to worry about her sending a ton of texts or racking up overages, and the wi-fi plan is a great way for her to utilize our home network to surf the net, play game, etc. I’ve been on Republic for about 4 months (my wife and I each signed up and have the $10 plan with the Moto G) – so far, so awesome and a great way to save some bucks each month.

I have been with RW for nearly 2 years- saw a cnet story about it. Can’t beat the low cost plan and most of our use is in wifi areas so we are way below any data ceiling. I have gotten the other phones for my wife and this year added my 13 year old. She has the $10 plan so she can talk or text to get a hold of us anytime but can only surf or play when she is home on the wifi- great deal for kids. I would keep this one for myself because i have a work phone and can”t get apps for it or surf the net easily.

I want a Republic Wireless phone or our family. I am home part time with our two small kids and the only way we can have me remain home as much as I am is to drastically cut our budget. So far, we have cut our cable and gone to streaming. The next is to cut our current cell phone carrier for a much more affordable plan through Republic. Those two changes alone saves our family over $200/month. Of course, my husband driving a car with almost 400K miles isn’t hurting either! :)

Thanks! Budgets are a way of life. Please also enter me in the contest for free Moto-E phones! I would give one to my husband and one to myself. We still have flip-phones because I can’t justify the budget expenditure for smart-phone purchase and service. We already have to pay for data that we don’t not use to get a cheaper plan with Verizon- makes no sense to save money by paying for a product we do not use, but Verizon does not negotiate or speak common sense. I have been following Republic Wireless for some time (and waiting for the Moto-E) trying to convince myself that they are not “too good to be true”.

Hi, I just signed up for you Blog in hopes of winning a Republic Wireless Moto E to give to my Niece. She will graduate from College this spring and also needs to graduate from her Mom paying for her Cel phone! I’d really like to see her start off on the right foot with RW.
Thanks,

I need another phone for my youngest daughter. Am planning on getting her the Moto E now that it’s on sale, but I’ll take a free one for sure. Been a RW customer for some time now, have 3 phones (Moto X and two Moto G), could not be happier. Was soo glad when I gave Sprint and Verizon the boot. Absolutely cannot beat the rates, all of my 3 phones now costing me 50$ per month (crazy wife insists on 3G, although she spends most of her time at home anyhow). I have been trying to get this setup for many years (smart phone with no data plan, don’t need it) glad RW got my back. Hope these guys make it big and really shake up the industry.

Appears that Republic is just about the best value overall that can be found in wireless service. You can get cheaper phones but they will all have their issues. You may find a cheaper plan but again there will be limitations. The service allows me to select a plan that fits my budget and meets my needs! I can’t be happier.

I would give one to my wife. She embodies the essence of the sexy budget. She is a great budget planner. So far, we have budgeted enough to get a new house and still be able to save money each month to do the requisite improvements and maintenance. She has a Republic phone but it is the original Defy XT. No offense but that thing is a hunk of shit! Somehow or another we budgeted enough for me to get the Moto X. I love it and I love Republics service. I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan and coverage has never been an issue. She needs a new phone and she would never do it for herself. She is the quintessential selfless mom. Literally, it would be the last phone she would ever need. Thank you for your time.

My 11 year old son has been DYING for a phone, but I refused to since it seems like it is so unnecessary at his age. However, his 10 year old ipod (yes, I believe it is that old since it was a hand me down from his 21 year old sister) has seen better times and I was planning on getting him a new one for Christmas anyway. Now with the phones and plans from Republic being so reasonable, it seems like this is a better replacement as a Christmas gift, as well as making his mother get a little better up with the modern times. :) Love, love, love your blog, and the hip “common sense” you promote!

Having a phonenis important if you ever want tp get a job now because calling back after an interview is key. My brother needs a phone but we don’t have enough money to pay up front only monthly. So if i were to win this phone it would go in good hands and a protective case he’s not going to break that phone.

I’d love to win those phones so I could give them to my daughter whom had been attending her after school programs so she could contact me and letting me know she’s ready for me to pick her up. And also for my wife whose her phone service nearly broke up our family budget! Her phone bill racked up to almost 85 dollars a month when I only paid mine for 10 dollars!

I am currently a Republic Wireless customer and absolutely love the service. It’s just what I needed at a cost that I feel comfortable paying for phone service. If I won the phone I would give it to a teenager that I know that was kicked out of his house by his parents. He doesn’t have much of anything and a phone would be a help.

I would give the phone to my Sister-in-law who would like a new phone. They are looking to spend as little as possible, but want to pay less than 10 cents per minute they currently do on T-Mobile prepaid. While I believe the Moto-G is a better phone for most people this would certainly be better than the flip phone we gave them a few years ago (which stopped working a while ago).

I would love to be able to give this phone to my wife. She has been using an older iphone for the last year or two but it is beginning to show it’s age. Also, as she has gotten older, her eyes aren’t what they used to be and the small screen of the iphone 4 is beginning to make it difficult for her to view at all times. The bigger screen and newest Android software would be a big boost for her cell phone experience. As a mother of 6 children, she spends a lot of time on her phone keeping up with all that is going on in our family. The Moto e and Republic Wireless service would greatly increase her cell phone capabilities while lower the family budget expenditures. Thanks for the chance to win!

My husband has yet to be enlightened by the awesomeness of Republic Wireless, because his 8+yr non-smart cell phone still works, even thoug the numbers are no longer visible on the keypad. He won’t buy anything new until his clunker dies. That said, if we won a free one…

I’ve been waiting for 2 months to switch to Republic Wireless with my wife ever since we read about it. My dad actually bought the moto x, decided he’s too much of an I phone junkie, and gave me his.

Plus, we’ll give you two referrals for 40 bucks off. How’s THAT for frugal? ;)

526 Bradley October 23, 2014 at 11:29 am

Were I to win this fantastic give-away, I would personally use the phone. I am a college student who has not had any sort of phone. When I go to, say, the doctor’s office, or when a friend asks for my number, I respond that I do not have a phone. First of all, it is funny how people just take it for granted that everyone has a phone and they just ask for your number and not if you have one. Secondly, they do not believe me when I tell them that I don’t have one! I just get incredulous stares and “Oh, really?” ‘s as responses usually followed by “Well, how am I supposed to contact you?” like them needing to contact me will magically make me have a phone.
Also, What If I run into a bigfoot or see something awesome and once-in-a-lifetime? Imagine the publicity for our good friends at republic wireless when I capture it on their phone!
Beyond that, I live in a pretty rough neighborhood. I try not to go out so much at night, but sometimes I have to. It would just be great to have the added protection factor of being able to contact someone if I needed to, because right now, I am on my own when walking alone.
In short, it would really be a huge convenience factor for me to get my first phone, and I would certainly appreciate the opportunity to start of my phone journey with this deal!

Republic Wireless seems like a wonderful service! I’ve been looking at it for awhile now, but putting down a big chunk of cash up front for the X or G was a bit difficult for me financially. The news of the new Moto E actually gives me a chance to fit it within my upcoming budget. Reducing my cell phone bill to $10 dollars a month would be a Godsend for me; Winning a Motorola Moto E with three months free full service would give me a chance to catch my breath with my bills and would make a huge difference in my life.
Thank you for considering me, J. Money and the Budgets Are Sexy staff.

557 Victor October 23, 2014 at 3:48 pm

Republic Wireless’s Moto X was my first smartphone, and I absolutely love it. The biggest reason I stuck with dumbphones up until 2 months ago is because I didn’t want to pay (out the nose) for services like cellular data that I wasn’t going to use. Republic lets me have all the advantages of a smartphone with none of the added baggage.

I have a friend who has a old Blackberry knockoff from Tracphone. She’s constantly forgetting to re-up her prepaid minutes, and letting airtime expire. Unlimited minutes from Republic Wireless’s Moto E would make her cellular life a whole lot simpler, not to mention save her money every month.

I would give the phone to my oldest daughter. I have been contemplating using Republic Wireless for all of my kids as well as myself. But have just heard of them and been doing a little research. We currently have Sprint but for four phones (non-of which has internet capabilities) we are paying a fortune. I do need to upgrade all four phones soon and ad yet another. If we were to get this phone my daughter could try it out and we could see if it is worth the switch for us all.

I have been looking into Republic for about 6 months now but it’s been more reasonable for me to continue my service with Verizon at $70/month that I am no longer under contract for then to spend $300 on a phone all at once. I’ve been trying to save but the budget is tight (thanks in very large part to reading your blog for about a year now) and I would REALLY like to put the extra funds I’d save towards getting rid of some of my last bit of debt that’s been lingering for too long.

I have been following Republic Wireless since they were in Beta with a horrible moto defy phone. Due to the area I lived in not having good coverage by Republic Wireless I decided to not join. Last year when the MOTO X and MOTO G were release I got excited and decided I wanted to join Republic Wireless as soon as I could afford the phone. Instead my wife who never had heard of Republic Wireless got a MOTO G and loves it.

If I received this phone I would keep it for myself to use and would be VERY happy. I can’t afford a normal phone bill due to the cost and I now live in an area where Republic Wireless picks up perfectly! Thanks for offering the chance to allow people to win an awesome phone!

I all reality, if I were to receive one of these phones, I would keep it, not in a sense of being greedy but that the value of it and how much it’ll save me strikes the reason for my answer. With college coming up soon, and knowing that my parents won’t help me pay for college, I’m gonna have to tackle student bills, my car insurance, and also a phone bill. Like all students, I don’t want to struggle in college, so a nice phone with cheap phone plans would be ideal. Whoever wins these phones, I know they will benefit from your generosity. Thank you for your time.

I would love a Moto E to give to my wife for Christmas… she has their Defy XT plan. The problem is phone calls can be problematic (but data and texting are fine) and she likes to call her mom (who has pancreatic cancer) and update her on our newborn son. But dropped calls are an annoyance to her and her mom and I heard the Republic Wireless has fixed the problems with their new phones!

I’d like to give one to myself because the one I have gets sooo hot that you can fry an egg on it, toast some toast and percolate some coffee… (the defy XT) it’s time for an upgrade/ heads up!

Couldn’t agree more about Republic. Just tried them out and will be switching from Verizon. I would gladly help out a couple of guys I work with the Moto E phones if we got them. Thank you.

I’d give the phone to my mom. I’ve been following RW since they were in alpha, and I was lucky enough to get an invite to their beta. Unfortunately at the time I was to broke to buy the phone. Finally took the plunge about 6 months ago and never plan on going back. I’m on the 3g plan which after taxes and whatnot come to a few cents short of $30 a month. I’ve been trying to convert my parents to the Republic for awhile now since it would cut their phone bill in half, but they are worried about coverage, so a free phone and free 3 months to try it would be just what they need. By the way posting this from my RW Moto G!

I love my Moto X with Republic Wireless! I made the leap without any friends or family having even heard of them yet alone being able to vouch. It took me almost a year to decide to take a leap and pay more for a phone than I ever have because I knew that if the service was good, I’d save money in a year easily, and after a year, incredibly. It paid off! I’m happier than I have been with any other carrier and I’ve had 5 others before Republic. I like pointing out to people that I can make calls inside of office buildings and stores where other people can’t just by getting on the wifi. I think my reception at home is better than any cell towers could provide (I’ve always had terrible reception where I live but it’s not an issue now.)
Anyway, I’m a low income individual and my parents are on social security now. They need the most affordable cell phones and plans they can possibly get. They just don’t think they can justify the cost of the phones. I know winning one of these would really help their budget and have them both make the move. Getting a phone for free would really help my family out so I hope we win!

603 Bradi Baumann October 24, 2014 at 4:08 pm

I give the phone to myself because my phone isn’t working well and I want to save money on my phone bill. Currently, my mom still pays for my phone but she recently changed over to republic wireless and likes it. I would like to take over my own phone plan to save my mom the $50 that she has been paying a month for my straighttalk plan.

Hey J. Money!

As always, thanks for the great and informative articles. Because of your previous article about Republic Wireless, I have since swapped over the the Republic nation! I am loving every minute of it – the savings are great, and the service is nothing short of my experience with other carriers.

If I were to win this giveaway, I would give the phone to my lovely wife. My hope was to switch my plan to Republic, and prove to her that the service was worth the savings in my monthly bill (I mentioned previously how me switching to Republic cut our bill from ~$160 to ~$80/month.) This phone would be a great gift to her, and would allow her to begin trying out the Republic service herself in order to help her switch over and save us more $$.

Keep the great articles (and giveaways) coming!

While I would like to keep one for myself, I most likely would give them to my 2 kids that do not have cell phones at this time so we can all be in touch. They won’t need 4G so the $10 or $25 plans would work great.

I’m a HUGE fan of Republic Wireless, which I stumbled across based on reviews like yours around the ‘Net. I’ve had a Defy XT for a year that’s been a great phone, and totally worth it’s price, but still in the dark ages compared to a Moto E I’ve had the opportunity to play around with a few days ago. It’s gorgeous, handles everything I need it to, and has the expandable storage in a lower-end phone (I judge based on megapixel count!) to handle everything I need. My friends would hope I don’t win this so I stay quiet about Republic Wireless for at least a week, and let them pay their high cell phone bills in peace for a bit :)

I was already subscribed to your newsletter when I saw this post in my email, but clicked through to the mattress giveaway you mentioned on Rockstar Finance to read about Tuft & Needle before subscribing to your updates there because the content is just what I want– few blogs out there are as consistently valuable as yours, and it’s too much work to dig through some relative dirt to find the gems in other places.

Here’s hoping for a new Moto E!

I would give it to myself. Right now I have a phone that is going on five years old. It is one of those ones that slide out to reveal the keyboard (so cool!!!). But I have been meaning to get on the smart phone bandwagon as there have definitely been times when I kicked myself for not having one.

In all honesty, I would keep it for myself.
My wife and I are already on republic wireless. I used the $25 plan and my wife uses the $10 plan for a total of $35 before taxes. We used to pay about $100 more than that on Verizon for one smart phone with 500mb of data and a flip phone.
I use google maps a lot for work, and we really can’t afford most of the phone services out there. We both got the MotoX for christmas.
Unfortunately, I dropped my MotoX a couple of months ago and the screen shattered. I can still use the voice activation and get audible turn-by-turn directions, but I could really use a phone with a functional screen again.
We’ve been saving up to replace it, but it takes time. Tight budget, and mouths to feed trump a replacement phone.
Winning one … that would be awesome.

Unfortunately, my phone is in contract with them but my daughter’s phone is not. I want to switch her over to Republic Wireless but can’t afford the $99 for a phone, especially this time of year.
