Celebrate the 4th of July with VTech (HUGE giveaway ends 6/23/13)


Fourth of July

Have you made plans for the 4th of July yet? Are you planning on going to someone else’s house to celebrate or are you planning to host the festivities at your home?

If you plan on decorating for the holiday there is no doubt you’ll be looking for items that are red, white and/or blue – the colors of the American Flag.

Here is a non-traditional holiday décor idea – how about a red, white or blue phone. Specifically the VTech CS6529 which happens to come in red, white and blue (as well as green and pink).

Ok… you probably think I’m nuts. How can a phone be considered part of the 4th of July celebration? Of course the color options help with the theme. Also, you’ll need a phone to call family and friends and invite them over to your place for the big celebration.

VTech CS6529-16

Believe it or not, not every one texts. Some people prefer to actually speak to someone on the phone. I know plenty of people who prefer to do things the “old fashion way” (calling vs. texting). Not everyone uses cellphones either. There are plenty of people who like to have a landline available to them. Cellphones are not always reliable. Not everyone likes to have long conversations on cellphones either. I prefer a regular phone over a cellphone for long conversations. I find regular phones more comfortable.

The VTech CS6529 gives consumers more “bang for their buck”. This budget friendly phone (available at Target for around $29.99)  packs a lot of great features in a sleek décor-friendly design. Check out all the features this phone offers.

Caller ID/Call Waiting*—stores 50 calls Know who’s calling with Caller ID/Call Waiting. Handset displays the name, number, time and date of incoming calls.

    • Handset speakerphone. With the touch of a button, the handset speakerphones makes hands-free conversations easy.
