Tightwad Tuesday: Cell Phone Accessories


We finally caved in two weeks ago and upgraded our cell phones. It had been two and a half years since new phones and I never liked the one I had. My husband found a free one at Best Buy that he liked so we took the plunge. Free phones aren't really free though - there are fees for upgrading and new accessories will need to be purchased. It is still cheaper than paying for a phone though. In order to save some money, we went to Amazon.com and searched for accessories. Instead of paying $24.95 for the travel charger our cell company offered, we paid a penny plus $2.98 shipping for a generic version. We also found similarly priced cases, screen savers, etc. If you are in the market for a new phone, I suggest looking online before buying the expensive accessories from the store.
