Tech Life with XFINITY & a $100 Amex Gift Card Giveaway

This post is sponsored by XFINITY.

Can you imagine your daily life without your smart phone or tablet? Most of us rely on our devices to get tasks done through out the day. I know that I am more productive and can respond to emails much quicker, since I can access my emails on the go. When we travel we bring multiple ipads with us. With XFINITY’s TV GO, you can take your entertainment anywhere. This works well for us when we travel. In the summer we spend time at my family’s lake place. When the kids need some down time, they can access thousands of XFINITY On Demand TV Shows and movies from a tablet, phone or computer. You can also stream your favorite shows, news and kids networks live. You can download your favorite shows from HBO, Starz, Showtime and watch offline. I am going on a trip at the end of April (without kids!) and I plan to download and start watching Girls.



In are house we are always searching for remotes. Why is it when you need the tv remote, you can’t find it? If you can’t find the remote, you can simply download the XFINITY X1 TV remote app and use your smart phone or tablet a remote control. Out for the day and forget to DVR your favorite shows? You can use the X1 TV remote app to schedule recordings.

As a busy mom on the go that is known for multi tasking and getting in some work whenever I can. The XFINITY WiFi app helps you locate and get directions to the millions of XFINITY WiFi hotspots in cities nationwide. Never be without WiFi again! A dream come true! I can even get work done while waiting for my daughter at dance class. You can find all of XFINITY’s free apps and down load them here.


We are giving one lucky winner a $100 gift card to get your shopping on!
