Amazon Penny Phones: For AT&T Family Plans

As you may know, Amazon Wireless has many phones available for much cheaper than you would be able to find at a wireless shop, or even at your carrier’s website.

Some of my family wanting to upgrade their phones, I suggested that they look into this option. They were suspicious at first, but they are now rather captivated with the idea, after visiting a local AT&T storefront.

As I looked through the penny phones available, I was pleasantly surprised at the pretty large selection available.

However, I discovered that not all of the phones are $0.01 when you are choosing to extend a plan, especially if you are on a family plan.

So I looked through each phone to check, and compiled a list of all the phones that are only $0.01 when you are already part of a family plan with AT&T.

I didn’t know that AT&T made proprietary phones? Haha.

  • F160 – a pretty standard phone; has 3.5 mm headphone jacks, so that you can use your normal earbuds/headsets/preferred listening devices


  • GU295 – slider phone
  • Neon II, Blue – slide out full QWERTY keyboard; small touchscreen
  • Neon II, Orange – slide out full QWERTY keyboard; small touchscreen
  • Neon II, Red – slide out full QWERTY keyboard; small touchscreen
  • Quantum Windows Phone – slide out full QWERTY keyboard; Windows Phone 7 OS; touchscreen; 5 MP camera

Get the most out of the “commercial holiday”

Valentine’s Day is often looked down upon as a holiday fueled simply by consumerism. Companies are trying to lure you into their stores under the ever-idealistic banner of “love” and “romance”. Bah, you say.

Well, not all vendors are looking to make you spend money. Some are actually giving things away for free! Sure, this is all to get on your soft side, so that you might buy something from them. But… Whatever to that, right? Those of us who are really into freebies know what to do- go in, get the freebie, and go along on our merry way.

  • A free sample of Marble Slab’s new Tiramisu flavored ice cream! It’s a pretty tiny scoop (3 ounces, which is like 6 non-heaping tablespoons), but ice cream is always delicious, and even more so when it’s free. Plus, the times are ideal¬† for everyone, even those in school- this promotion goes on from 3-6 PM. Check out their website for participating locations!
  • Get a free crunchy taco from Taco Bell! Just like them at their Facebook page, and then print out a coupon. If you’re not into online coupons, sorry, this is not for you. Or you could just go get a taco anyway. They are pretty cheap, after all. But free is always better than free.
  • Can’t get enough of free ice cream? Like miniature balls of breakfasty goodness? Send an e-card through Denny’s and get a coupon for a free Pancake Puppies Sundae for not only you, but your friend, as well!

So whether you are into just eating freebies and going, or are already planning on going to the above fine establishments, I hope you enjoy saving some money! Please do enjoy that delicious flavor that only comes from not paying for something! Hopefully the gas used to redeem your freebies doesn’t cost too much!

Vote for my fabulously cute entry!

To you lucky person who happens to read my blog:

I am asking a big favor of you. Sorry if this first sentence seems very sketchy.

You see, I have entered a contest hosted by FastWeb in celebration of its 15th anniversary. FastWeb is a reliable website that compiles and provides many scholarship opportunities.  The prompt, if you want to call it that, was to incorporate its logo into any sort of image of your liking.

I chose to use my drawing abilities to produce my image:

fabulously cute entryWell, the real image is not quite as faded, and it obviously does not have the black text on it.

I would greatly appreciate it if you were to register and vote daily, or as close to daily as possible, for the next two weeks. I know, nobody likes to create accounts, especially ones that ask for personal information, but trust me, this is a safe website. Anyway, all the personal information they need is a full name of sorts, and an affirmation that you are over the age of 13.

Also, if you could please pass on the word to your friends and family, by however many types of media that strike your fancy, that would be amazing.

Thank you so much for your time and support!



This is a revised version of an email that I sent out.
