★ Rockstar Giveaway: Republic Wireless Phone + Service!
This week’s giveaway? An equally exciting, yet MUCH more practical item in today’s world! Haha…
A free phone (and service) by Republic Wireless! AKA the best cell phone provider there is!
Why? Well, for one I use them :) I made the switch two and a half years ago and have literally saved over $100/mo every since. Which, for all you math nerds out there, equates to over $3,000! For pretty much the same thing I had previously with my iPhone* and Verizon Wireless service.
And secondly, their plans are crazy cheap because they ride on Wifi where it’s available (so costs the company much less), and then switches to the cell networks when it’s not. They also have super straightforward cell plans too, all of which you’re free to change up whenever needed:
That’s my 5 second review of them :) And if you look around at what the other financial bloggers are using, specifically the Early Retirement crew, you’ll notice even more fans.
You can learn more here: RepublicWireless.com. They’re also doing a 12 Days of Staying Connected promo where each new day brings a new discount. One of the last was a free shipping on any accessories – still going on now!
Now Onto The Giveaway! A Huawei Ascend 5W Smartphone + 3 Months of Free Service
I reached out to my friends there once we launched this series, and they happily set aside one of these phones for us to give away here :) And now it will soon be one of yours!
Here’s more on the phone per Republic’s website:
The Huawei Ascend 5W is an affordable phone with a luxurious look and feel. Enjoy pictures and videos on the crisp 5.5” display. Snap amazing pictures with a 13MP Sony camera with LED flash. The buffed metal body is durable, while also not too heavy to hold.
And here are the quick specs: Fingerprint Sensor, Premium Metal Design, 16GB Internal memory, 13MP Auto-focus camera, 5.5″ HD Display, 4G LTE Data, SIM card included.
The three months of free service is for the same plan I have – $20/mo with unlimited talk, text and Wifi data with 1 GB of cell data. But you can adjust it as needed as the winner will get $60 credited for it.
Want it? Or want to give it to someone for Christmas?
You have two ways to enter today:
- Follow Rockstar Finance on Twitter or Facebook or get our daily newsletters
- Answer this question: Who do you want this for, and why? (You can pick yourself ;))
Double entries for those who do both! But YOU MUST LEAVE THEM EACH IN SEPARATE COMMENTS BELOW for both to be counted. So one comment letting us know which you did for #1, and another comment for your answer to #2. Or you can just do one of them – whatever you want.
Good luck guys! You have until next Sunday night (December 18th) at midnight, and we’ll announce the winner shortly thereafter. U.S. only for this one I’m afraid, due to cell coverage and what not.
See ya back next week :)
UPDATE: Congrats to Josiah Duka for winning this killer phone! Thanks for participating everyone!
*The only thing that would make Republic Wireless 100% the best would be if they DID start carrying the iPhone – which currently doesn’t work w/ their technology. I didn’t mind switching to a comparable smartphone, but if you’re a diehard Apple fan you might as well stop considering switching over :)
