Operation Buy Hubby A New Phone! #RadioShack @RadioShack #MC #Sponsored

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for RadioShack. I received a gift card to facilitate a shopping trip and promotional item as a thank you for participating.

    If you know my husband, you are aware that he is a creature of habit.  Unfortunately that includes the electronic devices and gadgets that he uses.  He literally has had the same cell phone for the past six years and I have been begging him to upgrade for quite a while now.  The problem is that he has been very resistant to change and, as a result, continues to have the same outdated phone with outdated capabilities.

    A few weeks ago, I launched Operation “Buy Hubby a new phone.”  My strategy was to start shopping around for some of the best deals on smartphones with the upcoming holiday season.  I was very excited to find out that RadioShack has a serious plan for saving shoppers money on electronics this Thanksgiving weekend and beyond.

    Starting online Thanksgiving day on RadioShack.com, shoppers will find Black Friday deals of up to 80% off.  Additionally, RadioShack stores will be open at 8 a.m. on November 29th for Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals will begin on December 2nd at 12 a.m.  This means that there will be plenty of opportunities to get some great deals on gifts for your friends and loved ones for this holiday season.

    This past week, shoppers voted online at the RadioShack Holiday Hub.  They had the opportunity to name their own deals using an interactive application that allowed them to select their desired product and pricing and share those hot deals with others.  Make sure you check back on November 27th to see which deals received the most votes and try to be the first to grab a coupon code for a hot deal.

    As for me, I will be heading to RadioShack to buy my husband a new smartphone this Christmas and I already have my eye on the Galaxy S4.  I just got one of my own this past summer and I absolutely love it!  Hopefully I can convince Hubby to step into modern times and let that vice grip go on his old phone.

  1. I honestly haven’t been inside a Radio Shack in forever, so I didn’t even know that they sold phones there. This is good to know, though – you know, for when it’s time for myself and my hubs to upgrade.

  2. This is another one of those cool places that US has and we in Europe don’t *sigh*…I’m so envious!

  3. Hubby just got himself a new phone not too long ago and he thinks my choices aren’t up to par. 🙂

    I love Radio Shack, I am hoping the new mall that will open soon has one so I can shop there again.

    My husband sounds the same. He doesn’t even have smartphone

  9. Lol my hubby has one phone he has used for like 10 years and no matter what you do to it throw it or whatever it never breaks i want it gone lol.

  10. awww! Good Luck on helping him transition! Phones are about the only thing I don’t resist change with! They’re just so fun… however, my husband refuses to download new versions of some apps because he doesn’t want the new ones to be crappy… silly husbands!

  11. My Hubby has been using the exact same cell phone for a very long time. It is time that he get a new one I don’t know if he will every be willing to change over (LOL)!
