Samsung Galaxy Note 7

at Best Buy

I recently had the opportunity to visit BlogHer 2016 and stopped in the Best Buy booth for the Best Buy Experience. It was an enjoyable experience. I got to check out all the new gadgets and appliances that Best Buy has to offer. I was in technology heaven with all of the new innovations. My favorite was getting to check out the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy before it lands in stores.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy is one of the best phones to hit the market. I love the features of this phone. With the Note 7, you no longer have to worry if your phone gets wet. The Note 7 is Waterproof. It can get wet up to 5 feet of water for 30 minutes. You no longer have to use the rice in a bag method to hopefully dry out your phone, because it is waterproof.

As a busy mom and a blogger, I can use the S Pen to jot down an idea, to-do lists, appointments, draw, edit, create a GIF and so much more. It can sync with your calendar and other apps, to keep you organized.

I really liked that I know my phone is secure, and my documents, banking information and contacts are protected with the new Iris Scanner. How cool is that? Using your eye to unlock your phone instead of fingerprints, passwords or draw patterns, which you can still use to unlock your phone if you choose to. Since it is protected with the Iris Scanner, I feel more secure turning my phone into a mobile wallet. Store your credit, debit, membership and loyalty cards on your phone and pay almost anywhere you’d swipe or tap your card. Which really comes in handy when you’re in a rush.

Take great pictures and videos like a pro with a fast auto focus and a lens that lets in more light than ever before. The camera takes sharp photos and videos while on the move and in the dark. The battery is the longest-lasting battery to date and will keep you powered when your schedule is hectic and packed. The fast wireless charger will have you ready to go in no time at all.

Free Gear Fit2 or 256GB Memory Card with Purchase and Activation

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy

When you purchase a Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy, you can get a Free Gear Fit2 or 256GB memory card with purchase and activation. That is a great value.The bundle is worth $249.99, which is an awesome deal. You can take as many pictures and videos and never have to delete a memory again with a 256GB memory card.

 Best Buy Mobile Plan & Compare Tool

Did you know that about 50% of people overpay on their cell phone bill? That number is just way too high. Best Buy wants to help you find the lowest price with the Mobile Plan & Compare tool. The mobile plan and compare tool is a very simple process. Have a Best Buy employee use the tool to compare your mobile plan to others to see if you are overpaying. Give them a bit of information about your account and they will tell you which plan is right for you and how much you are overpaying. This service is available at all Best Buy stores. Stop in today to see how Best Buy can help.

I am so glad that my plan is ready for an upgrade within the month, and I will definitely be purchasing the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 at Best Buy. The Note 7 will help keep me organized while on the go and so much more. I have always been a Samsung Galaxy fan. I will pass on my Galaxy S5 to my son when I purchase the Note 7.

What are your favorite features of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?

When to Replace your Windows

Are you wondering when to replace your windows? You need to inspect your windows to see if they have any of the following problems;

  • Drafts– If your windows are drafty, they are allowing heat to come in from the outside. You are pretty much throwing money out the window.
  • Single pane windows– Some older homes have single pane windows. Double pane windows have an insulating layer of gas between the panes; single pane windows do not have this benefit. Therefore they are less energy-efficient.
  • Frame condition– Older windows, especially wood windows, take a beating over time. Frames can become warped and cracked due to temperature fluctuations over time.
  • Inoperable windows– Often go hand-in-hand with poor frame condition, older windows can become inoperable. Your windows may not open due to sash wear, being painted shut under many layers of paint, or not remain open due to sash or balance problems.
  • Glass condition– Over time, seals between the two panes of glass can weaken and become broken. When seal failure occurs, the gas between the panes escapes and you lose the beneficial insulating properties. A sure sign of seal failure is fog or condensation on the inner glass.
  • Increased utility bills– Compare your energy bills from the last few years. Don’t look at the dollars spent- compare the kilowatt hours used in the same month over years. If you see an increase, that is an indication your home isn’t as energy-efficient as it once was. Some utility providers offer online usage analysis tools to help determine if your usage has increased.

If your windows have any of the above problems, then it is time to replace your windows.
