Reader Matt sent this one into me. Since everyone can use cheap phone service and the price is great, I’m passing it along!
Until tomorrow (7/31!) use referral code JEG1769 to pick up a refurbished Ooma Telo for $99.99 (free shipping!). This is a $50 savings!
The Ooma Telo device is a VOIP (that’s voice over internet protocol, which means it uses the internet and not an old school phone line) device and gets you free calling, voicemail, and you can pay to port your existing landline over ($40). Sweet! As with any VOIP device you need high speed internet but you can drop your monthly telephone bill. If you’re like me (and Matt!) you may still need a landline but not want to pay the monthly fee (you still need to pay taxes and other fees like the Universal Service Fund charge that helps pay for government telecom programs and you’ll get billed for it, but it’s an eensy weensy bill).
I do keep a landline for our security system but my FIOS is set up that I pay virtually nothing, so I’ll skip this one. Cord cutters, don’t laugh. When you have kids you find out sometimes you need to go backwards. I’ve seen the Ooma at Costco for nearly twice this much, and if Costco sells it, I’m happy to recommend it! Plus I know Matt and he has great taste.
