Smartphone prices are continuing to rise as their features and benefits are becoming more elaborate. The average cost of a cell phone with the latest technology is approximately $300 to $500. You may want to obtain a modern smartphone to stay up to date on the latest trends. However, your lifestyle or your current pay rate may prevent you from paying full retail cost. The following are some tips that can help you to obtain a new smartphone for less:
Consider Signing a Contract
The biggest benefit of signing up for a two-year agreement with a cell phone company is that you can obtain a brand new smartphone for a fraction of the cost. You can usually gain approval for service if you have a fair credit rating. The provider may ask for a security deposit if your credit is less than “good.” Furthermore, you will have to stick with the provider for the duration of your contract, or you will have to pay an early termination fee. Before you sign a contract, you must be sure that you will appreciate your phone and your provider for two years. Additionally, you should live in the same area for two years.
Search for Promo Codes
Promotion codes and coupons can help you to save money on an expensive smartphone. You can find such codes online by entering the provider’s name or the cell phone name in the Google search engine followed by “promo codes” or “discount codes.” Discount codes and coupon codes are extremely easy to use online. During the checkout process, you will have an opportunity to enter such codes. The system will calculate your discounts, and then you can proceed to purchasing your new devices.
Enroll in a Payment Plan
You can apply for a payment plan if you have good credit. Major cell phone providers offer 24-month payment plans on smartphones. You could quite possibly obtain a smartphone with no money down and a monthly payment of only $10 to $30.
Shop for Used Devices
Finally, you can choose to shop for a used device to save yourself money. Online auction sites and classified ads are the best places to find used phones. Be sure to check the seller’s return policy and call in the phone’s electronic serial number before you make a purchase. You want to make sure that your device is not on the stolen list.
As a consumer, you can save hundreds of dollars by using the aforementioned methods to obtain a smartphone.
Cooking meals at home for the family is enjoyable, but it is not as enjoyable as visiting a public establishment and having someone serve a delicious entrée. The following are some good ideas for frugal dining with the family:
Free Kids Night
A multitude of restaurant establishments offers free meals to children under a certain age. Parents can choose from a least 50 establishments. Examples of some dining establishments that have the free kids night feature are Denny’s, Cici’s Pizza, Fuddruckers, Bennigan’s and Lonestar Steakhouse. The ages of children who can eat free range from three-years-old and under to 12-years-old and under.
Coupons and Discount Codes
The Internet is a wonderful device for finding discounts on meals. A person who is looking to provide his or her family with a frugal meal can conduct an online search for “restaurant coupons.” Printable coupons are available online from a wide variety of reputable institutions such as Applebee’s, Chili’s and IHOP. Frugal diners can enjoy benefits such as one free meal with the purchase of another entrée or item. Some coupons provide free appetizers, and other coupons supply the diners with a monetary deduction or discount on anything they order.
Free Birthday Meals
Another way to get a free meal for at least one member of the family is by waiting for his or her birthday. Several restaurants will give a birthday person a free entrée to enjoy on his or her special day. Examples of restaurants that offer this treat are Black Angus Steakhouse, Jack in the Box, and Moe’s Southwest Grill. A few desert establishments such as Dairy Queen and Krispy Krème will treat their customers to a delicious donut or ice cream item on their birthdays.
Credit Cards and Special Memberships
Credit cards and special memberships such as Triple A memberships can lead a family into a discounted breakfast, lunch or dinner. Triple A membership provides members with the ability to use their cards at certain restaurant establishments. Denny’s and Kingfish Grill are two establishments that accept AAA membership for discounts.
Credit cards sometimes have rewards programs from which cardholders can earn points. They can convert their points into a convenient discount at an eating establishment. Additionally, search engines such as the Bing search engine reward people who use their search engines with discount cards and other special rewards.
A family can enjoy a nice frugal meal by using one of the aforementioned strategies.
