- 1.(1 day ago)Obihai OBi200 Voice-Over-IP Telephone Adapter for $35 when added to the cart with code EMCBBBH29?.
Connects a home telephone (like a cordless phone) to voice-over-IP services. One such option is Google Voice, which is totally free to make and receive calls within the US and Canada. They provide a video guide to set up with free Google Voice.
Note, 911 emergency service does not work with Google Voice numbers. So, our OBi is configured to route 911 calls through Anveo E911 which costs $18/yr. Setup is very easy through their OBiTalk.com site.$35
- 2.(2 weeks ago)Google has been offering their YouTube TV service for a few months in select areas, and is now available in many cities across the US.
With YouTube TV, you can: Watch unlimited live TV channels from a list of local and cable channels, including ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN, MSNBC, USA Network, Telemundo, AMC, CBS Sports Network, E!, FXX, Nat Geo, AMC, and others. Free DVR. Works over the network (no equipment required). Gives the same pause, rewind, and fast forward expected from a DVR, but also gives the YouTube time slider to click, drag, and quickly jump to certain times in the show. Record unlimited shows with unlimited storage. Recordings automatically delete after 6-9 months. Watch TV at home, at work, at a friend's house, coffee shop, or anywhere with an Internet connection. Works on a laptop, tablet, or phone. Watch up to 3 TV streams at once. 5 friends and family can watch TV using your account at the same time. Works when traveling within the US, within a supported geographic area. Can control YouTube TV with your voice, using a Google Home. TV streams at 1080p, and will support 4K when channels upgrade their streams. Quality automatically degrades when Internet bandwidth slows. Works on your living room HDTV with compatible streaming capabilities: Works on TVs with Chromecast. Works on select Smart TVs that have the YouTube TV app. Works on Android systems like Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X. Works with AirPlay for Apple TV. YouTube TV price and free Chromecast: $35/mo No contract. Cancel anytime. 1 week free trial (billing starts after your first week). After your first month's payment, you can order a free Chromecast streaming media player that is compatible with any HDTV. Chromecast normally sells for $35. The downsides: Limited channel list. No CNN, Comedy Central, TBS, or MTV. NBC shows are available, but may be on-demand only (not live) in certain areas. On-demand means TV shows are available 1 day after they broadcast, for example, Saturday Night Live can be watched on Sunday. Requires the YouTube TV app, or a computer. Unlike cable which gives you a TV box and a remote control. Houseguests may not be able to change the channel on their own, unless you have a Google Home speaker. Live local sports may only sometimes be available. YouTube TV has limited live channels, and sports are not available to watch on-demand. So, if your favorite team broadcasts on a channel not included (Yankees play on YES, Red Sox on NESN, New York Rangers on MSG, etc.), you will need to keep cable or sign up for that team's stream (like, MLB.TV for baseball). The "YouTube TV" app is separate to the regular "YouTube" app, so it adds another app to your long list of apps. Does not yet work on Roku, but sounds like they're working on it. Probably will never work on Amazon devices, including the Fire TV, Echo Show, and Fire tablets. Google and Amazon do not play nice with each other. Can not keep recordings forever; they delete after 9 months. Quality is dependent on your Internet connection. At least 4 megabit required for 1080p, and 2 megabit for 720p. Cable providers could successfully lobby to eliminate net neutrality, preventing YouTube TV from working properly while using Internet from Comcast, Spectrum, AT&T, Verizon or other large cable company. It happened when Comcast throttled Netflix to hurt their business after taking their TV customers. Another benefit. Original YouTube Red shows seem to be available on YouTube TV, even without a YouTube Red subscription. YouTube Red is still a separate service that costs $10/mo and gives ad-free YouTube video and music watching/listening.
For more information, check out tv.youtube.com.
Other competing TV streaming services are available, as shown in this Huffington Post article. Some of those services include: Playstation Vue "Core Plan" for $45/mo is better for sports watchers since it includes NFL RedZone, NFL Network, MLB Network, NBA TV, and ESPNU. DirecTV Now for $35/mo includes more channels than YouTube TV. Hulu TV is $40/mo and also includes more live TV channels than YouTube TV. Also has enormous streaming device support, including Apple TV, Fire TV, Roku, Chromecast, and Xbox 360/One. Sling TV is the cheapest option at $20-25/mo, but carries few local channels (no CBS, ABC, etc.).$35
- 3.(2 weeks ago)They run this promotion every couple months, and is only for select Groupon customers. Basically, if you have an active Groupon account and have not already redeemed a similar Starbucks promotion over the last year, chances are your account will be allowed to buy this deal.
Starbucks eGift cards can be added to the Starbucks app on your phone. It's not only easier to pay, but you earn rewards points ("stars") which can earn you free stuff (coffee, food, etc).$10
- 4.(2 weeks ago)RavPower 32,000mAh Portable Charger in Black $54 Coupon code RAV32000 1.1 pounds 6A output, 3 ports RavPower 20,100mAh Portable Charger in Black $40 Coupon code RAP20100 13.3 ounces 2.4A output, 2 ports RavPower 12,000mAh Portable Charger in Black or in White $18 Coupon code 12000AMZ 8.5 ounces 2.4A output, 2 ports RavPower 16,750mAh Portable Charger $16.80 Coupon code 3FM4FNRZ 10.7 ounces 4.5A output, 2 ports RavPower 6,700mAh Portable Charger $11 Coupon code A6700MAH 4 ounces 2.4A output RavPower 3,350mAh Mini Portable Charger in Black, Gold, or Pink $9.35 Coupon code 8PZ3RXT8 2.6 ounces 1A output Don't forget to enter the promotional code during checkout.
Fully charge the RavPower before you head to a concert, show, sporting event, or travel. Each of these can fully charge a phone's battery when it's low or dead. Each include a USB cable to charge the battery pack, and use your own USB cables to charge your devices from the battery pack.
The total battery output rating is in "amps", represented as a number followed by "A", and means: 1A output can charge a mobile phone. 2.4A output can charge 2 mobile phones simultaneously, or 1 tablet. 4.5A output can charge 2 mobile phones simultaneously, or 1 tablet and 1 phone. 6A output can charge 2 tablets simultaneously, or 3 phones. Each of the above battery packs store different amounts of charge, represented in "mAh". A typical iPhone 8 has a 1,821mAh battery, so the 3,350mAh pack can fully charge a dead iPhone 8's battery about 1.5 times.
Our recommendations: If you are always on the go (or planning a trip soon), consider at least a 12,000mAh pack that can keep all your devices charged for a full day. If you want to carry a battery pack around with you, we feel anything above 10 ounces is considered "heavy". To put that weight in perspective, an iPad Mini weighs 11.7 ounces and an iPhone 8 Plus weighs 7.2 ounces. If you want something lightweight to boost your phone's battery when on-the-go, the 3,350mAh charger is a great value and weighs just 2.6 ounces. According to RavPower, their products include a 30 month warranty (2.5 years) when you register it through their website. They also cover shipping costs if the product needs replacement in the first 6 months.$9
- 5.(3 weeks ago)(expired)
Kindle 6" eReader in Black or White for $50. Available at Amazon for delivery, and Target or Best Buy with in-store pickup.
The Kindle serves one function- reading eBooks on a lightweight, thin screen with super long battery life (1+ week per charge).
Unlike a phone or tablet, the Kindle does not emit light. This means staring at the screen will cause less eyestrain than a phone or tablet, especially in dark rooms. Also, the Kindle's plastic screen does not reflect light, making the Kindle easier to see outside in the sunshine.$50
- 6.(4 weeks ago)T-Mobile took an Asus TM-AC1900 802.11ac Dual-Band Wireless Router, slapped their logo on the front, used it, and now selling it. Price is $50 when you select "no credit check." Press "Add to Cart." The "My Cart" page immediately appears. Below the "Add phone" button is a Promo Code entry. Enter code ROUTER and press "Apply" Price is $40. Includes a 1-year warranty. Claims to provide both 2.4GHz and 5GHz wifi frequencies, capable of the faster speeds provided by 5GHz.
Normally $60 for this refurbished/used model, or about $80 new.
We purchased a similar "refurbished" Asus router a few years ago that died two weeks after its 30-day warranty expired. T-Mobile's deal does offer a 1-year warranty which is makes this a deal worth considering, plus the $40 price is about half what a new Dual-Band 802.11ac router would cost, but remember to factor your time and possible frustration if a used router were to die on you.$40
