Frugal

Woo hoo!!! I replaced my cell phone last week. It’s my first “smartphone” and, oh my word, I am having SUCH fun with it! I got an iPhone 4, and I absolutely LOVE it!!! I can do anything and everything on this thing. And yes, it’s true, there really is “an app for that.” lol!

So now I need to figure out how to protect this thing. The iPhone 4 is glass on the front and on the back. I’m pretty careful with it, but I need a good case and some accessories. The guys at the wireless store where I got the iPhone weren’t very informed about cases and accessories. I asked them if there was a flip case available for the iPhone, and they said no. :hmph: Well, I looked at Buy.com, and there are LOADS of flip cases for the iPhone! And the cases are a whole lot cheaper than the bland silicone stuff at the retail store! The retail store wanted to sell me a very basic Belkin silicone case, an iPhone car charger, and a protective plastic screen for the whopping amount of SIXTY dollars. And that was their “deal.” $60?!?!! No way, NOOOOO way. I did get a case (the cheapest kind, at the outrageous price of $30!) but after shopping at Buy.com, I’m going to take it back. The best the retail stores could offer me were the basic red, black, gray, and hot pink boring rubber cases. *yawn*

Look at all the stuff at Buy.com for the iPhone! How will I ever choose?

I think they are so beautiful, so creative! I don’t know which to pick. The wood one is real teak wood. It’s currently out of stock, though. But it’s very affordable– less than the cheapo Belkin plastic thing I currently have.

I LOVE the fourth one. It’s the Spring Flowers iPhone 4 Snap-On case and it comes with a car charger! Guess how much the sale price is? NINE DOLLARS. Includes shipping. Yes, $9!!! I can’t believe that the retail store was charging me $60 for a lousy piece of black plastic and a charger! It’s unbelievable.

So now you know what I mean when I say I love Buy.com. Because I REALLY do.

    Thanks for letting us know about buy.com–sounds like a great way to find good deals! I am a bit behind and just wondering how much the iPhone costs monthly. Do you have to pay extra for each app you choose? You can choose only the apps you want, right? I take it you can still make calls on it since is does have phone in the name of it? Do you think I would like one?
