The modern wifi family and a $100 Amex Gift Card Giveaway!

This post is sponsored by Comcast.

As a blogger,  internet access is very important to me. It is my lifeline! I remember back to the days when we used dial up. That seems like we were living in the stone ages. Am I right? These days modern families rely on internet to get day to day tasks completed. It seems these days we have a million different devices in our home and that is turning out to be the norm in most families. Both of my kids have apps and websites that they use for school assignments on a daily basis. The truth is that in our house it isn't unusual if all four of us are using our wifi at the same time.  Mia might be completing assignments on her ipad using a school approved app and Dylan might being playing a game, you can find me doing research, looking for recipes or writing a post! If my husband is home, that is just one more person using our internet. Thankfully with XFINITY they know that busy families need SPEED! XFINITY Internet delivers the fastest in-home WiFi for all rooms and all devices. With XFINITY, you can get the quick speeds you need, even during peak hours and with multiple people logged on. They offer a variety of plans to meet everyone’s needs. Whether occasionally surfing or spending hours streaming movies on 5+ devices, they have a plan for you. Social network and download HD movies and tons of music in minutes, then stream at the highest quality.

One of my personal favorites is that as a XFINITY customer I have access to millions of hotspots nationwide. Let's face it nothing is worse than needing to get some work done when you are on the go and not having access to wifi!  Have you ever seen the “xfinitywifi” network pop up while you’re running around? That’s it! Covering tons of places around the country, these hotspots let you stay connected and experience your favorite content on the go. With data plans on cell phones adding up, this allows you to conserve data and use XFINITY’s free WiFi network wherever available. Find hotspots near you by searching your address here or downloading the XFINITY WiFi app. They make it so easy that once you sign in with your comcast username and password, you are automatically connected whenever a network is available.

Have you seen all of the amazing winter sales going on right now? I have done some shopping with gift cards I received at Christmas. We want you to hit the sales too!

XFINITY X1 & $100 Amex Gift Card #Giveaway!

This is a sponsored post.

Last month I shared with you that I am a member of the XFINITY SO FAST team. I think my kids are the most excited about having XFINITY in our house. We had an old TV in the playroom that was only used for movies. We upgraded the TV and hooked it up with XFINITY and have been using the X1 platform for about a month. It has turned our playroom (that is traditionally a living room) into more of a family space. The kids love having movie night in the playroom, sitting in their comfy bean bag chairs and picking a movie from On Demand. The personalization is taken to the next level with the X1 platform. The platform allows you to discover new favorite shows or movies based on what you have been watching. You can select a program and scroll down to "More Like This". You will see a list of similar movies and shows you might enjoy  or other programs with specific cast or crew members, simplifying the "what should I watch tonight". The kids LOVE finding out what X1 suggests they might want to watch. If you are a twitter junkie, you see what is currently trending by looking through the guide, The "trending Now" icon will show you what everyone's talking about so you don't miss out! How cool is that? We love when social media and television collide.

My husband is a huge football fan and of course that means that the kids are sometimes forced to watch Monday night football. (the horror) We realized how great the benefits to having a TV in the playroom the other night. The  X1 platform made football watching a football fans dream come true! The kids were able to watch Disney XD's Pants On Fire a movie they had been wanting to watch for while! They were quiet, happy and let daddy watch football in silence. XFINITY X1 for the win!

I know what you are thinking, a TV in the playroom could be dangerous. You are right but parental controls are easily accessible and easy to figure out. You can be in control of your television with a four digit PIN that lets you lock programs by rating, channels or titles, and that prevents unwanted purchases of XFINITY ON Demand or Pay Per View. You can also set up text and email alerts that notify you when an On Demand program is ordered. It is nice to know that once you set these controls, you can rest easy that your kids won't watch anything inappropriate.

We want to make sure you are ready for holiday shopping and are giving one lucky winner a $100 Amex Gift Card!

If you haven’t checked out what Ty of @tysofast is up to yet, you’re missing out! He’s sharing tons of great life hacks and tips for residents of Chicago. My favorite one last month was "Got a stuck zipper? Try rubbing shampoo (or anything sudsy) on the area with a cotton swab. Should loosen it right up!" I love his every second counts message!
