Hi everyone! So today I am focusing on the kids, and I wanted to share with you a kid’s company that I love. Toys “R” Us! They are a huge kids retailer that sells toys, games, clothes, movies, furniture, baby items, video games, and much more! But in my opinion, it is all about the toys! And everyone loves their furry mascot, Geoffrey Giraffe! Today I am going to tell you a little bit about this company, and give you a chance to win a free gift card from them! So let’s get started!
Toys “R” Us is a great kid’s company that has been around a long time. They started in 1948 as “Children’s Supermart”, and now they have stores in America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. They ship to at least 68 countries around the world, and have great customer service! And if you are having a baby, you can create an online registry, so that others can see your wish list!
I have many memories as a child of going to the local Toys “R” Us and being amazed at how many toys they had! They were the place to go for all the popular, unique, and cool toys! So check out their website now, and decide what you would like to spend your gift card on if you win our giveaway! Enter the giveaway through the link below! Thank you so much for reading, and good luck!
Toys “R” Us did not compensate me in any way, shape, or form for this post. This is how I really feel about it!
Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you another great product that I just got in from Orico. It’s the 6619 Series USB 3.0 SATA Hard Drive Dock! It can be purchased from Amazon or Newegg for around $20. Orico is a great company, that I personally like a lot. They provide a competitive product that works like it should, at a low price, and have great customer service. I am going to tell you about this product, my experiences with it, and give you a chance to win one for free! So let’s get started!
This device is used to dock an internal hard drive, so that it can be accessed from any computer like an external hard drive. If you have a computer that crashed, then you can use this to save your photos, videos, files, etc. If you pay a computer repair shop to retrieve your old data from a crashed computer, this is similar to what they use. And they charge you way too much for doing it! So next time, consider saving yourself a ton of money and purchase this unit.
This is also great to use in non-emergency situations, like for extra storage space. Instead of buying a small capacity USB drive or expensive external hard drive, you can use your old computer’s hard drive or buy a cheap one. The advantages to this are saving money and faster data transfer speed. You can even back up everything on your current computer and store it on another drive, just in case. If you want to dock 2 hard drives at the same time, then consider purchasing the other model they make, because it has 2 docks. So make use of that old hard drive today!
I received this item quickly, and it was well protected in the packaging. It has a nice durable feel to it, and a weighted base. That is nice because it keeps it from tipping over from the weight of the hard drive. It will dock either a 2.5 or 3.5 inch hard drive. The 3.5 inch hard drives are common in desktop computers and the 2.5 inch ones are common in laptops. There is an LED light that lights up when the unit is powered on. It comes with all the cords you need, and a manual. There is no download or anything needed, you just unbox it, plug up to your computer, and it is ready to go!
Getting to your internal hard drive should be very easy. My PC required the removal of 6 screws total, and my laptop only 5. It only took me about 3 minutes in total each time. Look at your computer’s manual to find the location if you are unsure. You can easily find manuals in PDF form online by searching for your computer’s model number as well. And YouTube is a great resource to find a visual reference.
There are a few things worth mentioning at the end here that go for any brand. I recommend using a computer that has Windows 7 at minimum. Windows XP can give you trouble “seeing” the device. If you are a Linux user, and trying to access Linux files from a Windows computer, then you may have a bit of trouble at first. If you manually created your partitions at Linux install time, then you may have to use the command line to carry out functions. If you do not have USB3.0 then you can still use the product, but you will not have as fast as transfer as if you did. Whoever you are and whatever you do though, avoid unplugging this device or turning it off when you are transferring data or you may lose it all! If you would like to purchase one now, then you can click HERE to go to Amazon, or click HERE to go to Newegg.

Hi everyone! Today I want to share with you another great product I just got in from Qicent. It’s the SC-6ASU Surge Protector With USB Super Charger. It can be purchased from Newegg for around $20. This item has 6 outlets and 5 USB super charging ports! Each USB port is 2.4Amps. In the case of a power surge, which happens often during power outages, it will cut off the electrical connection to the devices plugged in to it therefore protecting them from harm. I am going to share the details of my experience using this product, and give you a chance to win a free one! So let’s get started!
The unit seems to be built very well. It feels solid, and when you shake it there is no loose noises coming from inside like other brands I have used before. This item does have a gap between outlets, but if you are planning on using a lot of box-style plugs, then you may end up with one or two that are inaccessible. That is common from what I have seen though from other brands as well. It does charge my smart phone and tablet faster than the stock chargers, which is nice! Additionally, I noticed that when I had everything plugged in that there was no high-pitched feedback sound which I have experienced with another brand before.
I hope that this review helped you to decide that this is the right product for you! I have not experienced a power outage yet since I have owned this product, but based on the specifications and how well this unit is made, I have no doubt that it will do it’s job when the power goes out next time. If you do not already have a surge protector for every computer and television area in your house, then I definitely recommend that you protect those areas, and for the low price you can’t go wrong with this one! If you would like to purchase one, you can click on the link HERE to go to Newegg. Thanks for reading, and for your chance to win a free one, enter the giveaway in the link provided below!

Hi Everyone! I wanted to share with you my secret to cheap cell phone bills, without a contract! Ting! You heard me right! It’s an amazing company named ting! No matter what phone you have, they make it easy to switch over to their service. And it is cheap! But that does not mean you have to sacrifice coverage. Chances are, they use the same cell phone towers that your current carrier uses. If you have a SIM card in your device, most likely you will have the same coverage as T-mobile. And if you do not have a SIM card in your device, chances are you will have the same coverage as Sprint. I have used their service on both GSM (SIM card/T-mobile towers), and CDMA (no SIM/Sprint towers). Today I am going to share with you the positive experiences I have had with ting, how to find out if your phone will work with them, how to figure out how much you can save with them, and how to get $25 in free credit! That’s right, you can start saving today, and get $25 in free credit towards your first bill! So here’s the scoop!
My husband and I use our phones a lot! With the carriers we have used in the past, our bill averaged around $180 a month. That’s well over $2,000 a year! And to top it off, the customer service was horrible. But like many people, I felt like there was nothing I could do about it. One day, I was looking for a way to break free from the chains, and I found out about ting! The first thing I noticed was how low their prices were. I had never heard of them before, so I was unsure of the signal I would receive based on the low prices. Then I found out they used the same towers I was currently using. To find out if my device was compatible to bring over to their network, I simply had to look in my phone settings for a number that is specific to my phone. Easy enough so far!
So I decided to make the switch. I called them up and was absolutely shocked to have my call answered immediately by a real person! I thought that maybe I dialed the wrong number. No, this is actually a company with hardly any wait time, if any. And after 5 minutes on the phone and a restart on my phone, I was switched over to their service. It was super quick, very few questions, I was able to keep my old number, and there was no charge up front! Several months later, I switched to a new device. I called them before purchasing it to be sure that it was compatible. They explained that since my new phone used a SIM card, I would need to purchase one for $9 to have service. That seemed reasonable, considering there is no fee to switch my service from one device to another. I received the SIM card, inserted it into my phone, and called them. After less than 2 minutes I was up and running again!
After almost a year, I can easily say that I am amazed at the strong signal, amazing customer service, and incredible savings! Currently, my bill for both my husband and I averages $56 a month from ting! Sometimes it is actually less than $40! We use WIFI whenever it is possible to cut down on mobile data usage, but we never have to worry about running out of minutes, messages, or data with ting! There is even a free ting app to easily keep track of your usage anytime! Here is how you can do it quickly and easily…
2. If you have not already figured out what your savings would be, look at your recent phone bills to get an idea of your monthly usage is. Select the “What would you save” button, and plug in your usage details to calculate your savings.
3. If you already have a phone that you want to check for compatibility, select the “Bring yours” button. Otherwise, use your $25 free credit to shop for a new phone by selecting the “Shop devices” button.
4. Locate your MEID or IMEI number. If you are using an android device, simply go to your phone settings-aboutphone-status area to find this. If you are using an iPhone, it will either be in the phone settings-about area to find this. Or it may be engraved on the back of the device or on the SIM card tray. Write it down.
5. Enter your MEID or IMEI number and select the “Check” button. You should get a confirmation that your device is ready to be activated!
6. Select the “Activate” button, complete a few questions, restart your device, and you are saving so much money!
7. If you have any trouble or have any questions, feel free to comment below!
