    I am cheap like you. I just ordered one and will be picking it up on my way home. Thanks for the tip.

          My wife is a big fan of this site. Obsessed might be a more correct term.

            I'm fairly cheap in a lot of ways like with monthly bills. I pay my Tmobile bill with my checking account so I can still get the $5/line monthly discount (x7 for the seven lines our family has). But that also means I don't have the benefit of the cell phone coverage from my credit card.

            So I opened a premium checking account with America First that includes cell phone insurance. In order to get the $6 monthly fee waived, I have to come up with 20 monthly transactions on the debit card. I could probably do that by making a bunch of mini payments to Tmobile. That seems like a lot of work. Maybe I should just swallow the $6 fee and call it a win.

            What would you do? (How cheap are you?)

              I am a cheap bastard, but I don't trust using debit cards. They just don't have the protection of credit cards, or at least that is my understanding. If I am incorrect, I would be happy to be corrected.

              I also do the direct pay to t-mobile.

                I've never heard of using cell phone insurance from a checking or credit card account provider, but I don't really understand the appeal. A phone replacement value is less than $1k so why would I worry about insuring it? I guess I'm self-insured in this regard.

                      You may know it as AppleCare+.

                      ​​​​​​My last few phones have been the Samsung flagship phones, so a little spendy. I've made a claim on each of the last two for cracked screens and/or damaged body that have paid out over $1000 combined. I never got them repaired, but simply traded them in as a damaged device which made my dollar go farther. Did I mention I'm cheap?

                      Like BFM, I never pay for insurance on stuff I buy. I self insure. But when the insurance is free, I'll use it. Right now my plan is not to jump through any hoops for the insurance but to simply pay the $6 each month.

                        Wendy's has a deal where you get 50 chicken nuggets for $15. That's quite an inexpensive way to feed multiple children or one person with a large appetite.
