Google Chromecast For Sale!

UPDATE: Item has now sold.  Thank you for original interest!

Streaming devices have become all the rage these days as people continue to look to cut the cord.  I have for sale a used 2015 edition of the Google Chromecast up on eBay listed as a Buy It Now for $25.  Certainly open to offers as well.  

Description:

The Google Chromecast (2015) NC2-6A5 Digital HD Media Streamer plays internet radio and video for you. All you need to do is connect to your HDTV’s HDMI interface and a Wi-Fi network to get going. It offers compatibility with your phone, tablet, or laptop to stream your favorite apps like Netflix and Hulu Plus. The Google Chromecast lets you choose from more than 200,000 shows and movies, more than 30,000,000 songs to enhance your entertainment.

We had originally purchased this when we had taken a test drive with Samsung Galaxy phones for streaming, but after already having an Apple TV and a Roku box from our cable company, we just didn’t see the need to keep this as well.  Thanks for taking a look at it, and certainly let me know if you have any questions!

Deal: T-Mobile Customers Get a 3rd Line Free with a 2 Line Unlimited Plan

Currently T-Mobile is running a promotion for customers, both new and current, where you can get a 3rd line for free after signing up for a 2 Line unlimited plan for $100 a month (after bill credits).  To order, you can either call 1-855-741-8940 or visit their promo page for more details.
It is a limited time offer, with some exclusions applying.  Customers who may have cancelled a line after Jan 1, 2017 may not be eligible, and it could take up to two bill cycles to go into effect.  

Here is a summary of the Q&A from their Promotions Page:

  • How do I get the free add a line promotion?

    • Starting March 1st, for a limited time only, anyone activating 2 unlimited lines on T-Mobile ONE, and existing customers with at least 2 voice lines on T-Mobile ONE or Simple Choice can get 1 additional line for FREE after bill credit.
    • All free lines must be activated during the promotional period and you can keep the promotional pricing as long as you maintain qualifying service and line count. Customers may take advantage of this offer in addition to other offers and promotions, including 2/$100 and Carrier Freedom.
  • Who’s eligible for this promotion?

    • New customers, current customers and employees are eligible to receive this offer as long as they are on a qualifying rate plan, have two paid voice lines, and an account in good standing.
    • Customers with one voice line will need to migrate to T-Mobile ONE and add a second paid voice line to qualify for the FREE Line. Qualifying new and existing @Work customers may add one additional qualifying line on us for a max of 12 lines total.
  • How does the offer work?

    • The free line will match your current paid voice line data, i.e. T-Mobile ONE customers will receive a FREE T-Mobile ONE line and similarly, Simple Choice customers will receive a FREE Simple Choice line.
    • If your lines have varying amounts of data, the free line will match the line with the least amount of data. Existing customers with two paid voice lines get a free line whether you’re adding a smartphone line, tablet line or wearable.
    • In most cases, you will see your free line credit on your first bill. If credit is not applied on the first bill, two credits will appear on the second bill.
    • For customer’s not on the new T-Mobile ONE taxes and fees included plan, taxes/fees may be applied to pre-bill credit price. A maximum of 1 free line can be added per account.
    • If you cancel service on one of your lines within 12 months or migrate to another plan, you will lose the monthly bill credit for the free line.
  • Where is this offer available?

    • Anywhere that T-Mobile offers new lines of service, including T-Mobile retail stores nationwide, and authorized postpaid dealers.

Our family recently became T-Mobile customers a year ago, and have thoroughly enjoyed their customer service.  While placing pre-orders for the latest iPhones have always been a bit touch and go (which seems to be the case for all carriers), they always seem to go above and beyond to make sure we’re happy!  We did recently sign up for the Unlimited promotion for the two lines, and are pleased we won’t necessarily have to worry about data overages anymore!  And you can’t beat them having one of the most entertaining CEO’s around in John Legere.

ebook Deals: Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives: An All-American Road Trip and The Girl’s Guide to Starting Your Own Business 

While the activities of fatherhood, which I’m sure most new dads could relate to, have not allowed me to leisurely read as much as I would like, I must say I have enjoyed using Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite for my reading collection, especially for it’s nighttime reading feature so it isn’t as hard on your eyes.  

That said, wanted to highlight a couple of book deals for today.  While his personality might be a bit much for some, we also enjoy The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives hosted by Guy Fieri.  If anything, we love to see some of the off the wall places you might not always know about when traveling beyond the usual big box chains.  Today, you can pick up his companion ebook for $1.99!  It’s available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple iBooks and Google.

Guy Fieri takes his hit Food Network show on a road trip complete with recipes in this New York Times bestseller. With pit stops at holes-in-the-wall across the country, you’ll discover amazing food from some of America’s hidden treasures. 

Next up, we have The Girl’s Guide to Starting Your Own Business by Caitlin Friedman and Kimberly Yorio.  We have started getting into watching ABC’s Shark Tank lately, and really appreciate the ideas that many fellow budding entrepreneurs put forward, and I have always been a big fan of individuals being able to take their hopes and dreams, putting both feet forward to make it a reality.  Hopefully their book can help inspire you to do the same as well, adding your own Script-Note in your life.  Available at Amazon, Apple iBooks, and Google.  

This New York Times bestseller is perfect for any entrepreneur thirsting for success! From assessing finances to managing employees, learn how to build solid foundations for a thriving business. “Their savoir faire and enthusiasm are infectious” (Publishers Weekly). 

$229: Refurbished Apple Watch

In the market for a new (well, sort of new) Apple Watch?  Apple is now offering Apple-Certified Refurbished Apple Watches starting at $229.  While sales tax is charged in most states, the good part is that shipping is free.  All watches have the same 1 year warranty as brand new watches.  

As a Series 2 Watch owner, I have greatly enjoyed mine, enjoying the little reminders of when you may have been sitting too long, taking deep breaths (which I’m sure we could all stand to do more of these days), or quickly responding to emails, it is certain to offer a little something for everyone.

Amazon Deals: Save 38% on a TP-Link Smart Plug

As a tech enthusiast, I am always keeping an eye out for ways I can save on the latest gadgets.  As evidenced by this year’s CES event, the latest tech craze seems to be how consumers can build up their “smart home”.  Amazon’s Echo product has really been the front runner in this department, allowing users to speak to the device to control other devices within the home.

Treasure Trove

With spring seeming like it is just around the corner here in the Midwest, I must say I have gotten bit a little bit by the entrepreneurial bug, and am starting to try my hand at my own e-commerce site, creating T’s Treasure Trove.  I am in the process of trying to link it to this site, but for now, please find it at tilmanns-treasures.myshopify.com.  

My goal is to find items that are trending, as well as those that could be of use before you might even know you need or want it!  It’s certainly a work in progress at the moment, but my hope is that with sales, it will allow me to continue to build, shape and grow.  

That said, since there is still a chill in the air, check out these handy finger-less gloves!  I certainly appreciate the support!
