Best Buy and BlogHer16
Earlier in the month, I attended BlogHer16 in Los Angeles (I got to meet Freddie Prince Jr.). I was looking around for gift ideas for the holidays for the tech lovers on my list but ended up with a wish list of my own. 

I love the new Samsung Galaxy Note7 and all of its bells and whistles. I’m a note taker and with the new S Pen feature, I can write, draw, edit and record my thoughts and capture all of my to-dos, right on the phone. No more missing scraps of paper. I think the phone will be an amazing way to stay organized.

Other great features include an iris scanner for privacy protection, water resistance, a fast autofocus and lens to take photos and videos when you’re on the move and in the dark, a long-lasting and fast charging battery, and more.

Wow how cool I never knew that. I so need to go by and let them try and save me $$$ on my bill!


I never realized there are half of the people overpaying the service. That is a lot! I hope I’m not among them, but I’d better doulecheck, haha! Have a great weekend,

This is GREAT! I know that we are overpaying but didn’t know that there was a one stop shop at Best Buy to see where you can save money. We are going to check it out.


This is really great info for those on a cell plan, I use a prepaid plan and I am happy with it. Been using it about a year now, but I know many who would love to use these tips to save on their cell bill they are in 😉


This sounds awesome. We are for sure over paying and every single month they ding us more. Our data gets shut off constantly and we rarely leave our house/wifi. Very annoying. I am going to have to check this out!

We have a plan that really works for us, but I am always looking to save money. I’m going to head over to Best Buy to have my bill analyzed. Thanks for the heads-up.

Thank you for sharing! This is a super helpful tip, and I think a lot of us are overpaying. I’ll be sure to find out soon if I’m one of those people who’s overpaying

I am actually very happy with my service. It’s prepaid but I’m not over paying. I will have to check out Best Buy though and see if they can save me more.

Samsung sure is making waves this year! I’m interested in the Note 7 as well, it’s gorgeous and it’s really functional. It’s like a laptop on the palm of your hands. I think it’s alarming that we overpay our phone service, it’s good to have a deal that works for us!

Rebecca Swenor

This is awesome information about Best Buy’s mobile plan-and-compare tool. I would love to save $40 a month on my phone plan. Samsung Galaxy Note7 sounds like an awesome cell phone I am going to have to look into. I love the S Pen feature along with the phone being water proof too.

I definitely know nothing about this…my husband is always the ones to look for deals! He often goes to Best Buy too!

It is great that places like Best Buy offer several options of cell phone carriers because you can find the one that works for you. We have bought all our phones and service at Best Buy.


What! Freddie Prinze Jr! Sounds like I missed out on a great time. I know quite a few bloggers that swear by the Galaxy Note. I’ll need to swing by Best Buy and see what they have to offer.

This is great for those looking for a bargain and aren’t we all! Nowadays a cell phone is a lifeline.

Terri Beavers

I do think I’m over paying for my cell phone service. Since i buy everything from Best Buy, I’ll check this out,

Chrishelle Ebner

I definitely know we are over paying. I have to wait for our contracts to be completed and we are definitely checking into more affordable alternatives.
