This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am very excited to share with you a phone plan called, Straight Talk.  You know I love saving money and Straight Talk does just that.  There are no contracts, no surprise bills and no credit checks. They offer great nationwide coverage and excellent reception/connectivity.  And get this, Straight Talk only uses trusted phone manufacturers like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung.  I love the idea that I feel richer with Straight Talk because I cut my cell phone bill in half. You have to be crazy to be on a contract these days when you can get everything you need without one.  Get your hook, line and sinker all in one. 

They have a variety of monthly plans, sure to meet your specific needs.  The “All You Need Plan” meets even the needs of heavy phone users with 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and 30 MB of web data. They offer unlimited Monthly service for only $45, and includes calls, text, picture messaging, and web.  Now you don't have to worry when you call a friend you can talk as long as you want. It is great when you know exactly how much you are going to be paying for your phone bill.  Straight Talk even offers a long distance package.  Straight Talk International Long Distance Service is a flexible prepaid calling service that enables you to make international calls from your home, cell or office phone at low rates.

One more thing, don't think you are going to get some cheap phone just because you are getting a great deal on the service.  Straight Talk has amazing smart phones; touch screen phones, and app capable phones with features like voice navigation, camera, video recorder, music player, instant messaging, and Bluetooth.  Or maybe you want to get a phone for your child and since mom knows best you might want to get them a gently used phone.  Reconditioned phones are available from $10.00 with camera, mp3 player, mobile web access, and blue-tooth capability. Great for young users!

Check out the success of these customers.

Imagine the amount of money you could save switching to Straight Talk.  I would love to see some comments of what you would buy with that extra money! :)

Shout Out for Zenni Optical!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zenni Optical for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you are wearing glasses, I sure hope you're not over paying.  You must check out Zenni Optical.  They have some really great deals.  I found a lot of fun styles and professional looking glasses at very affordable prices. 

These super cute glasses are only $12.95.  Buying these, opposed to some other really expensive glasses could save you a lot of money.  Think about how much money you'd save if you were buying your glasses from Zenni Optical instead of someplace else. 

Zenni Optical is getting some serious exposure for their great deals, too.  The very reliable magazine, Time magazine featured a great article about Zenni Optical. The savings you are going to score are well worth the change in who you purchase your eye glasses from.  In a previous issue of Time magazine ["Eyes on the Price", July 4, 2011] it was discussed that a Time editor, Bill Saporito, paid $1,000 for a pair of eyeglasses.

A Time reader wrote in with the following comment -

Hey, Bill, Can You Read This?
Please tell me editor Bill Saporito is receiving mental-health treatment, because he is insane for spending $1,000 on a single pair of glasses. I buy glasses from Zenni Optical, an online site. It's $20 for a complete set at my doorstep, shipping included.

-Peter Minton, Winsted, Conn.

I also love this feature on their website.  You can upload your image and check out the hottest styles on you... so fun!!
