Enjoying Straight Talk

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
 Maggie, a friend of mine who works as company financial analyst is a budget freak.  My nickname to her is just that, "Budget Freak."  She cuts coupons out of newspapers, only shops in stores with sale or goes to garage sales on weekends.  We get along very well and shop/save together a lot.  I learned a lot of money saving tips from her. In these times, anything we can save goes a long way.
One morning Maggie surprised me with a question, "What would you do and where would you like to go if  you have an extra $1,000?" I sensed a bit of excitement from the sound of her voice.  I wondered how she found an extra $1,000. I instantly said I wanted to go to Vegas and spend the money on slot machines. She laughed at me and said that we are not going to Vegas but instead she would love to do something other than gamble her money away. I wondered why she even bothered asking me if it has to be her way. Oh well, she is my best friend “the budget freak”.
She was all excited about a new found cell phone deal. She told me about "Straight Talk"  everything you need which allowed her to cut her cell phone bill in half which means a savings of over $1,000 a year. We both spend a lot of time on our cell phones.  I have an unlimited plan, but Maggie only purchased a time sensitive plan.  Sometimes she would cut our conversations for fear of exceeding her minutes. She rarely uses text messages because this is limited too. It becomes very annoying but she is my best friend the "budget freak."
There is no contract with "Straight Talk." Finally, a company who doesn't hog tie their customers with an iron clad contract. Monthly plans are available for heavy phone users like me and  Maggie. There are unlimited service plans for only $45 a month or $499 a year.  This plan offers unlimited calls, text, picture messaging and internet features. Other service providers charge  activation, reactivation and terminations, these are all free with "Straight Talk."  They have international long distance services, so I can now call a friend or family in the Philippines and Maggie can talk to her family in Russia.  This is a good deal. Now, we are both looking forward to the vacation Maggie is planning for both of us in the spring.
Maggie indeed is a very good example of a mom knows best person. You can learn more about the benefits of Straight Talk through this Hook, line and sinker video.
