You know that thing you have called a budget? Good. Do me a favor and find your “Cell Phone” category. You probably won’t have to look very hard to locate it since it’s likely marked with devil horns and what looks like “HATE! KILL!” scrawled next to it. Now, if you’re budgeting more than $25/month for unlimited talk, text, and data, you should keep reading. If you’re interested in cutting that cost even more, to say, $10/phone for unlimited talk and text (with data over WiFi), you should gently fist bump your screen and also keep reading. And finally, if you’re interested in getting a free rad phone with 3-months of said magical service included OR a free Google Chromecast for your entertainment pleasures… I can’t help you, sorry… PSYCH!

OFB readers, meet Republic Wireless. We’ve heard about these guys through the grapevine for the last year or so, but we never actually chased the leprechaun to the end of the rainbow to find out more. It all seemed too good to be true. No contracts, unlimited plans as low as $5/month, smart tech that runs off WiFi + cell seamlessly, good Android devices. Thems some pretty serious claims.
So, here’s the deal. Republic Wireless has been awesomely generous enough to hook us up with a phone to try for the next few months so that we can report back to all y’all about our experience. And in the meantime, they also want to hook up OFB readers with some goodies, too. They’re
currently running [offer is now expired, sorry!] an awesome promotion where they’re giving away a free Google Chromecast with the purchase of a Moto X. So now you can kick your cell provider AND your cable company in the face! (Unless you neeeeed live sports, like me, in which case you curse the sports gods that prevent you from getting rid of cable… for now.)
In honor of all that awesomeness, we’re giving away one Moto X phone with three months of Republic Wireless service AND three Google Chromecasts. That means four of you will win. That’s a lot of winning. The giveaway ends Tuesday at 11:59pm EDT. There are two entries available per person, so snag them now and enter below.
Good luck! And stay tuned for our review of Republic Wireless in the coming month! We’re excited to report back.
