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.

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?

Evite Helps Bring Families Together

Evite™ helps bring families together for Easter. Every year my family gets together for an Easter dinner and Easter Egg Hunt. I wanted to change things up this year and have the dinner and egg hunt at my house instead of my parents house. With the help of Evite, I was able to reach every family member near and far and invite them to the Smith Family Easter Dinner and Egg Hunt, by sending them an Evite Easter Card.

I was really inspired by the pastel colors (pink, greens, and blues), the cute bunnies and colorful easter eggs on my Evite invitation , that I carried the Easter Egg Hunt theme into the decor of my home. Baskets of decorated eggs filled with prizes are awaiting to be hidden on Sunday morning. The Easter Bunny and Easter Eggs are the decorations that adorn my home for this years easter celebration. I purchased napkins with bunnies and colorful, decorated eggs to add a little flair to my table setting.

We will celebrate Easter with an egg hunt and a nice dinner, along with my family. I hope this is a start of a new tradition of celebrating Easter at my home and the gigantic easter egg hunt that we have planned. Who knows next year I may expand the egg hunt to include my small town community. That would be an easy event to handle using the Evite services.

CurrentC Saves You Time and Money


Using CurrentC saves you time and money this holiday. Christmas Season is definitely a busy time for all of us, as we decorate the house and purchase gifts for our families and friends. Saving time and money this holiday is a big priority for most of us.. For me I want to get in the store, get what I need, and get out, saving as much money as I can in the process. CurrentC can help you do that. You can quickly pay and be on your way.

Sears is a great place to get gifts for everyone on your list. You can pick up some new tools for your dad or husband, a new sweater for  mom, and a few items for the kids. Or maybe you need new appliances or just a centerpiece for the table. I picked up a few new ornaments to add to a basket for a decorative centerpiece on the table. You can use CurrentC at the checkout to quickly pay and be on your way just like I did.

Christmas Centerpiece

Using CurrentC to pay at the register is very simple to do. All you do is:


  • Open the CurrentC app
  • Select Checkout
  • Select Shop
  • Scan the Paycode
  • You are done.

It is so nice to get what you need and quickly be on your way.




Saving money is simple with the CurrentC app. You can add your store loyalty cards and when you check out your savings are automatically deducted from your total. Coupons for various stores are also included. Simply clip the ones you want to use and when your checking out, the savings is automatically deducted as well.

CurrentC LoyaltyCurrentC Offers


One of the best parts of using CurrentC is at the gas station. At an Exxon/Mobile gas station, you open the app and select “Pump”. Verify your location and your pump number to authorize the pump to begin fueling, all before you get out of your vehicle to pump the gas. This is an added benefit of security, as some of the card readers at the gas pump have been corrupted by scammers (we have seen it on the news). You never have to run a card through the reader, it’s all done in the app. Pump your gas and be on your way. This is great to use when you want to stay in your warm car as long as possible on those cold Ohio winter days. Just get out of the car to pump the gas.

CurrentC can be used at many stores, restaurants, and gas stations around the Columbus, Ohio area. The app will soon be available nationwide. So stay tuned for when it becomes available nationwide. Until then enjoy CurrentC at the following stores in Columbus. New Stores are added often.

Use CurrentC at the following stores, restaurants, and gas stations:

Walmart  CurrentC stores




Giant Eagle



Exxon/Mobile Gas Stations

Shell Gas Stations





CurrentC has revolutionized the way consumers are shopping. Using CurrentC saves you time and money by centralizing your loyalty cards and payment accounts, and automatically applying coupons and loyalty rewards at checkout. With a simple scan, your items are purchased and you are on your way. Don’t forget to check back and see if the app has added your neighborhood when it goes nationwide.

You can find CurrentC in iTunes or Google Play. Download the app today and start saving. To learn more about CurrentC check out this post I wrote here.

It is only being beta tested in the Columbus, Ohio area at the moment. Don’t fret though it will soon be available nationwide.


I was  grocery shopping at Giant Eagle the other day. Just picking up a few things for dinner and some cleaning supplies. In a hurry as usual, I gathered the items on my list. I was ready to check out and headed towards the checkout lines. A few registers were open and they had a line 5 carts deep. I scanned the checkout area and spotted a self checkout terminal. I quickly pushed my cart towards it before anyone else spotted the empty line and beat me to it. Yeah I could checkout without waiting in a long line! I scanned my items at the self-checkout terminal and was ready to pay. I grabbed my cell phone and hit the CurrentC app and logged in.



CurrentC Mobile Pay HomescreenCurrentC LoyaltyCurrentC Coupon Offers

The self checkout terminal had options to pay from Cash, Credit, Debit and CurrentC. I tapped the CurrentC button and the screen changed to a QR code. I used my phones camera and scanned the QR code.
