I need one of these in my house to find all the things I keep misplacing
The guy that made this over two hundred years ago and did it with hand tools alone was extremely inventive and a fantastic craftsman.
I am always looking for a deal – found one. Well someone told us about it so I checked it out.
A phone company called ‘Ting‘. Best thing since sliced bread I believe. Only available for those in the States though (Sorry Aussie’s you are stuck with those uncompetitive, unco-operative phone companies and paying through the nose). We anticipate that we will save $50 a month at least, and we were already on a discounted program. The nice thing about it, you pay for what you use and you can go on the website and check up on your usage at anytime. (I know some companies offer this as well)
This is not one of those money making sales pitches. The only benefit is it does offer the usual ‘refer a friend’ and if someone joins you do get $50 off your phone bill. It is only a ‘one off’ thing.
We had a small problem in changing over and received instant help from someone who spoke the English we are used to (like from our own country – being USA).
If you are interested in saving on your phone bills it is worth checking out and compare with the company you are dealing with at the present moment. Better in your pocket than theirs.
