Straight Talking: Feel Richer By The Minute!

This post brought to you by Straight Talk. All opinions are 100% mine.

Since the advent of the cell phone, I have always found it an amazing way to communicate and reach out. Especially on emergencies. When I was a teenager and cellphones were the size of a shoe, we used our friend’s bulky cell phone to call our parents when we were stranded somewhere. Calling from the middle of nowhere was more acceptable versus the consequences of not letting them know we needed rescuing. Of course, there were still consequences but being chewed out was better than hiking the dark highways in the middle of the night.

When I started working and I needed a cellphone to keep in touch with the outside world, I decided on a plan. Little did I know that all that “keeping in touch” via text and voice call minutes would kill my paycheck and bury me in debt! It coincided with my boyfriend going out of the country, so you can imagine how we racked up the bills. We tried to be meticulous about the minutes and the promo rates but somehow, little “surprises” cropped up in the billing. So after paying that off, it was go pre-paid for me (which still ate up a lot)! I ended up using my cell for texts and emergencies only.

Now, for all my readers State-side, here’s a plan I’ve just heard about called Straight Talk. It actually makes you feel richer by cutting your bill in half without sacrificing calls, texts or even surfing the net from your phone! What’s more, you don’t need a contract, there are no surprise bills and no credit checks!

Hook, line and sinker I could actually spend the money I’m saving on something else for the kids! Or me! Better yet, maybe put it into the vacation fund! Yay!

Everything you need With great nationwide coverage and incredible reception/connectivity, their monthly plans cover great deals even for the heavy phone users. The “All You Need Plan” has 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and 30 MB of web data. The Unlimited Monthly service is only $45 that includes calls, text, picture messaging, and web. Then for a whole year, you can have unlimited calls, text, picture messaging and web for only $499.00! 411 calls are included at no extra charge and it’s absolutely free from activation, reactivation, or termination fees!

Call a friend Straight Talk also has an International Long Distance Service that features an incredibly flexible prepaid calling service. It allows you to make international calls from your home, cell or office phone at low rates. This would have been really useful when the boyfriend was out of the country! Imagine what I could have saved up for with all that we spent calling each other back and forth!

Hook, line and sinker Finally, Straight Talk only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung. You can even choose from a wide array of smart phones; touch screen phones, and app capable phones with features like voice navigation, camera, video recorder, music player, instant messaging, and Bluetooth®. And for the kids, there are great reconditioned phones available from $10.00 with a camera, mp3 player, mobile web access, and blue-tooth capability.

Todo lo que necesitas Gosh! Where was this when I was stuck in the middle of nowhere?! I wish this was already available back then! If this had existed before, my cell wouldn't be for emergencies only! (Attention, ex-boyfriend-who-is-now-my-hubby! Take the hint! :D)
