Snugg Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard Review & GIVEAWAY!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on August 13, 2013 at 11:10 PM Comments comments (19)

If you're looking for a wireless keyboard for your iPad, check out the Snugg Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard & Case.  It's attractive and well designed.  It has an aluminum/chrome looking finish that nicely compliments your device.  And it's extremely easy to pair and use! 

Plus, it doesn't require any batteries (it has a built-in rechargeable lithium battery).  The keyboard charges via a standard USB cable, which is included, and holds a charge for a remarkable amount of time (55 straight hours of continuous use, or 60 days standby time); and when depleted, can be fully charged again quickly in less than five hours.  And if you're like me, you'll agree that it's nice having the use of arrow keys, and quick short-cut keys, which this keyboard provides.


When I received my Snugg wireless keyboard, it only took about 45 minutes to fully charge out of the box.  And pairing it w/ my device(s) was a breeze, and took less than one minute!  I was amazed how quickly, and easily, the keyboard paired with my devices.  I even made a short video with my 10 year old son demonstrating how quick & easy it is to set-up (click here to view that video), proving it's so easy that even a young child can do it!  I paired it with both my iPad and my iPhone, and have been pleased.  

I found this keyboard to be handy around the house; and I imagine that it's even handier for the traveler on the go.  The three things I like most about it are: 1) It's easy to type on.  The keys are raised, and spaced a comfortable distance apart.  2) In addition to being used with our iPad, it can also be used w/ my iPhone (and iPods), too.  3) The remote distance on it is fantastic (up to 10 meters, or over 32+ feet), and thus can be used while our iPad remains in it's protective case.  


The Snugg Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard & Case features the following

- Lightweight (280gm) & close fitting - not bulky

- Aluminium finish w/ white keys

- Operating distance of 10 meters (over 32 feet)

- iPad slots into the top of the keyboard & connects via bluetooth

- Accepts keyboard shortcuts & includes a home screen button

- Built-in automatic sleep/wake function

- Long lasting rechargeable lithium battery w/ 60 days standby time

- Easy to pair w/ the iPad 2, 3, & 4, iPhone 3G, 4, 4S & 5, & iPod touch

- Can connect to any device w/ an iOS 4 or higher

- Comes w/ USB charging cable

I'm very thankful that I received one of their free full size products coupons because it made me aware of this awesome product with which I've totally fallen in love!  It's my new FAVORITE!  :D

Polar Pillow Review & Giveaway!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on January 8, 2013 at 5:50 PM Comments comments (137)


Alright!  Without further adieu, this is the Polar Pillow review and GIVEAWAY that I know many of you have been looking forward to!  And I'm super excited to tell you all about it!  What is Polar Pillow you ask?  "PolarPillow is an award winning cooling pillow that helps you sleep better so you can live better!" Polar Pillow (info sheet, PDF).

Before trying the Polar Pillow I read a lot about it and thought it was a pretty cool concept (lol no pun intended), and was very interested in trying it out.  What I didn't know then at that time was that the Polar Pillow would be life changing, and I would absolutely fall in love with it!

For YEARS, almost my entire life really, I've always struggled with sleep!  It usually takes me forever to fall asleep, and I usually wake up several times throughout the night.  And most of the time, I hardly ever wake up feeling refreshed. And I kid you not,  Polar Pillow has changed all of that!

With Polar Pillow, I fall asleep much more quickly, I sleep more soundly throughout the night, I wake up much less often, and I wake up feeling more refreshed!  It's awesome!  The hardest part for me has always been falling asleep in the first place, and Polar Pillow is just so cool and comfortable that it soothes me into relaxation and sound sleep quickly!  It's a dream come true!

In addition to all of that, Polar Pillow is saving me $, too!  Let me explain... My family and I need it to be very cold in our home to sleep at night. And seeing as we live in "The SunShine State" of Florida, as you can imagine, keeping a Southern home cold at night can be quite expensive!  And that's what first attracted me to Polar Pillow in the first place!  I was thinking, "hmm, if our body temperature feels cooler, maybe I can save on cooling costs."  And I was right!  It works!  We don't need to set the thermostat down as low to sleep at night anymore thanks to the Polar Pillow!  I'm so excited about that part!  I bet Polar Pillow pays for itself in no time!

Another exciting discovery that we happened upon by accident just though our personal use, is that the Polar Pillow has helped both my young son and I with our frequent headaches!  That alone is a God send!  I can also imagine how helpful Polar Pillow must be to those that suffer with hot flashes, night sweats, fevers, and etc.!  I should write a "thank you" letter to the Polar Pillow founder!  I don't know why no one thought of this product sooner!  Polar Pillow is pure genius!

Polar Pillow is literally life changing!  If you suffer with any sleeping issues, or if you just want a better night's rest, do yourself a huge favor, and purchase a Polar Pillow!  "You spend 30% of your life on a pillow...get the right one!" ~Polar Pillow!

Right now, the kind people at Polar Pillow are offering a 15% OFF discount to my readers when they place their orders & use promo code 1FRUGALMOM at check out! Plus, Polar Pillow is also currently offering FREE SHIPPING on all orders right now until February 2013!  What are you waiting for?!  "Love it or your money back!" ~Polar Pillow

EXCLUSIVE GIVEAWAY for 1FrugalMom Fans!  The extremely generous people at Polar Pillow are kindly giving away an awesome Polar Pillow to one of my lucky readers!  For your chance to win, ENTER HERE on the Rafflecopter Entry Form!  "A great day begins with a cool night!" Polar Pillow

Note: PolarPillow comes with a PolarPack, that can be frozen, and inserted inside the pillow to provide extra ALL-NIGHT cooling.  Polar Pillow states that "if used without the PolarPack, the pillow will still be cool on its own for approximately two hours of use.  After being used, PolarPillow's coolness will re-energize within 30 minutes of exposure to room-temperature conditions."   We personally found that the Polar Pillow remained cool enough for us all night long even without the PolarPack!  Click here http://www.polar-pillow.com/FAQ.cfm for answers to frequently asked questions about the Polar Pillow. View my brief video review HERE (if you can't see it below).
