★ Rockstar Giveaway: Republic Wireless Phone + Service!

rockstar giveaways

Time for another Weekly Giveaway! Big congrats to “k.Jam” who won last week’s 1865 two-cent coin for sharing their best two cents, and to “Investment Hunting” for winning our booby prize ;)

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:

republic wireless plans(I rock the $20/mo plan which comes out to $23 and change after taxes)

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

huawei ascend 5w republic

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:

  1. Follow Rockstar Finance on Twitter or Facebook or get our daily newsletters
  2. 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!

    Phone and plan for me. I started using the iPhone and it has been hard to make to the switch. This would be a great way to try it out.

    I’d love to give it to my mom. She is looking for a new phone and service after losing her last phone. After seeing both me and my wife’s experience with republic she seems to be leaning towards them. Unfortuanetely giving it myself would be over our mutually agree upon dollar gifting limits, so it won’t work to just buy it.

    I’d like to give myself the gift of a great new phone. Treat yoself, right?? :-)

    I’ve been trying to exercise my frugal muscles and squeeze as much life as I can out of my iPhone 4. That’s right, FOUR! I literally don’t know anybody that still has a 4. It’s so slow but I can still talk and text on it so I keep using it.

    Whether or not I win, I still love Rockstar Finance. It is my “go-to” site every morning (along with Personal Capital!)

    I would like to give this to my Brother in Law who is still a financial adolescent. He works 2 physical labor jobs totaling 70+ hours a week to support his wife and son. They just recently found out she is pregnant again. They seem very happy about it but I can’t stop thinking about how they are going to make ends meet. I have done their budget for them, preached to them about dropping high cost Verizon for Republic. I think they are under the impression that there is some shame in having a low cost carrier, they are still somewhat young and branding matters still… I have my doubts he will ever try a low cost carrier if not for something like this give away. I would really like to give him the gift of $100 a month back into his budget, and hopefully finally be able to open his eyes to a new world where he doesn’t have to choose between groceries and diapers.

    Good morning. I’m following you on Facebook now. I don’t know why I didn’t follow you sooner. I’m a big fan of you and your blog. I’ve been contemplating trying Republic Wireless out for a while now but just haven’t wanted to pull the plug on Sprint. I still have a very old iPhone 4S! It’s still working just fine and I probably have more phone than I need even with this old phone. I love the idea of saving more money though. Put me in for the drawing please. I want the phone for myself. Thanks!

    I just signed up to get your daily newsletters because I already follow you on Twitter :p

    Honestly I’d love to use it for myself. Two reasons. #1: I’ve read so many great reviews about Republic, but haven’t been able to pull the trigger and drop a few hundred dollars on a phone to test it out. #2: I’d love to finally be on my own phone plan again. I currently have a line on my Dad’s plan because it’s far cheaper than trying to get my own plan. Even prepaid services like Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile are at least $35/month.

    So not only would I be able to try a great service I’ve been interested in for while, I would get the gift of independence, which is the best gift of all :)

    Thanks for being so awesome!

    Hello, its me again – my 2nd entry. I’d like to win this drawing for myself. I’ve gotten on the Republic Wireless site several times but haven’t been able to pull the plug. I guess I’m so used to having my phone service through the “more expensive” guys. However, if I win this phone with phone service, it would be an easy way to see if I like the service just as well as what I’ve had for many years through Sprint. I vote for saving money! This would be a no brainer.
    I use my cell phone for my small business: Designs by Reni and take pictures of my products with my iPhone. How does this phone do with taking pictures? That’s been one of my main concerns for switching.
    Please put my name in again for winning this phone/plan. Thanks!

      I know – switching carriers is always a pain in the a$$ no matter who you move to :( But fortunately you only have to do it once and then you’re good for a while!

      RE: Pictures – it’ll all depend on *which* phone you choose vs the actual carrier, but I feel like these days most of the newer popular phones are all relatively the same. At least for what I use them for (pics for my blog, social media, etc). So you’d have to look at each particular phone to see the specs and if it would have what you need specifically, but there’s lots of top line ones that RW offer ;)

      And actually – the winner here gets a *credit* for the phone, so you can apply it to any phone you’d want! I’m currently rocking the Samsung Edge and its camera is killerrrrrr.

    You see that big white area in the coverage map called Montana? That’d be me. I have hesitated pulling the trigger on any of these cheaper carriers because the coverage maps are all pretty sparse up here in the great white north (clocking in at -5 degrees F today, btw). However, your offer of a free phone and service would let me try this out risk free, for science, and I would gladly report back my findings to help others in a similar situation.

    If I were to win the phone – I would use it for myself/my family. I’ve been wanting to try Republic – but haven’t pulled the trigger because their website says the service in my area is so-so. I’m afraid to get the phone/service then not have it work when I need it to. So this would be perfect for a trial. Plus my family all has different types of phones and it would be great to find one that works for all of us. Thanks so much!

    I would love to give this to my son, who is getting ready to leave the nest and join the armed forces. His phone screen is broken, but he still uses it because he is flexing his frugal muscles in preparation for an adult life of austerity (at least at first). Would love to be able to send him off with something new, not broken, and a reasonable monthly cost to stay in touch with his momma.

I am not sure why cell plans are so much cheaper in the UK….. BUT we are moving back to the states next year and was wanting to pay allot less then $150 a month :-) really hoping I win :-)

She can’t work right now because she can barely see due to cataracts and other problems in both eyes. She can’t afford phone service and it keeps getting shut off. She’s have eye surgery so that she can work but has to put the costs $1500 on a credit card b/C she doesn’t have the money to pay. This phone and free service would go a long way to help her.

    I would like this for myself (currently on Moto e 2nd gen, and it has endless problems). It’s time for an upgrade.

    Problems so far:
    Speaker is blown
    Camera doesn’t focus properly
    Sometimes when playing via aux, right audio signal is staticy, restart fixes
    Crashes quite often
    Randomly changes date and time so I get a boatload of notifications from time-based games

    the reason i would like this Republic Wireless offer is that we recently retired and i am doing everything i can think of to be thrifty and wise with our finances. I have had my eye on Republic for awhile now…

    Myself! It’s been a rough 6 months. I got a divorce and coincidentally broke my phone the same month. I had to find a new job, go back to school, get a car when mine finally kicked the bucket…

    Anyway, I just passed the exams to become a realtor– a job where your phone is central to your business. I’m still sporting the saddest. phone. ever. Shattered screen, have to press extra hard on it…The dingey case can’t even be replaced because it’s holding the phone together. This phone would help me with my new life!

    I missed out on getting one of the Huawei Ascend 5W phones when they went on sale. Winning one would certainly make up for that! I’d definitely keep it for myself (now using an LG306G) and give Republic Wireless a try. Being able to make calls using my home wi-fi would be great since my current cellular service is extremely iffy inside my house.

    I too have been using Republic Wireless for a couple of years. I want the phone and account for myself but will share my win with my son who also uses Republic Wireless. I didn’t even notice a drop off in service quality when I switched from Verizon and saved about $125.00 per month.

    I would love to win the phone for my sister. I have the plan, and convinced my mom to get the plan two years ago. My sister has finally seen the light and wants to get it asap. She is trying to save money so her and her newly married husband can start a family. I helped her with her budget recently and she is doing everything she can to reign in the expenses. It would be a wonderful Christmas gift for her to get it. As saving up to buy the actual phone to start the plan is her biggest road block! Thanks and love your site!!

    Hello J Money.

    There is not much that I can say after reading all the previous comments. What I will say is I have been on the fence about making the switch ever since you mentioned Republic in your news letter a year or so ago. This would be a great way to try it out for free! (Isn’t that kind of your “motto”) LOL!
    Thanks J
