TruConnect MiFi Mobile Internet Review & Giveaway ($160 Value)


For Easter my parents decided to do something different and rent a condo at the beach for our entire family. I was so excited to get a nice trip away from home and the boys love the beach. When we were searching for condos, my only request was wireless internet, so she found a beautiful place right on the beach for us. Once settled, I sat down in the living room to check my mail and no internet connection could be found. I scratched my head, huffed and finally admitted there really was NO INTERNET. Luckily I had packed my new TruConnect MiFi Intelligent Mobile Hotspot!

My Thoughts
We travel a great deal during the summer months and take many weekend trips throughout the year. I've never really thought about it until recently, but those internet fees at hotels are quite costly and really add up. Just a few weeks ago we stayed at a hotel and the internet fee was $16! That is very pricey, especially if all I wanted to do was check my mail! This is what makes the TruConnect MiFi so awesome! This tiny device easily fits into your pocket. Yes, it really is that small, so you can take it anywhere.
See how small it really is!
How does the MiFi work? First, you need to make sure the service is available in the areas you would use the TruConnect MiFi. I checked my area as well as frequently visited locations and all of them had service, so it is available in many places, especially in the south. Once you purchase the MiFi at $99, you only pay a monthly access fee of $4.99 to connect and, once connected, you only pay 3.9 cents per megabyte! That is really a great deal, especially if using when traveling! You can save some money easily.

The reason I was so excited to receive the MiFi was not only so I could save some money, but because I never want to be in the situation again where I am without an internet connection. You never know when you will need the MiFi and, since it is so compact, there is no reason you can't bring it along. It fits easily in my purse side pocket and, if ever needed, I just need to take it out and turn it on!

So, now that you have heard what an amazing device the MiFi is, would you like a chance to win one for yourself?

Thanks to TruConnect, one Lucky Children Teaching Mama Reader will Win a MiFi along with an entire year without access fees! The total value of this package is $160!!!

I would love it as a mom on the go

brett said...

I would like to have a mifi so that I can be mobile with my blog work- so if the kids are busy with story time or something, then I can still get some work done while they are occupied. AND if our internet goes out (yet again) I can have a backup.

I would love to use it whenever we are out and about. It would be great for a Kindle or laptop.

I live in an area of AR where I am close to NOTHING so it is a long drive to get anywhere. Hotel WiFi is not always reliable for speed and not every restaurant or business has free internet access. This would be perfect to keep with me for so many little occassions away from home.

daner26 said...

I don't have wifi and my family is always complaining when they come over to my house!

latanya said...

Lately, we have been losing wifi for whatever reason and with this, we would never have to worry about it.

We are moving, so this would be great to have!

CRahkonen said...

I would love to have the MiFi because where I live we can only get dial-up service. We do not have DSL or cable service here. This would be great for us.

I'm still reading about this, but I am thinking if I have my very own connection NOT associated with the wifi in our house that gets slowed with gamers, kindle, teenager's ipod, and a teen laptop, I would maybe have not so sluggish of a connection perhaps. Plus, I know it's seldom something that happens but we lost power last week and also have during the winter storms, so would be nice reliable service.

thank you!

Jodi Kershuk said...

This would be great for when I take the laptop to my moms. She doesn't have internet access and doesnt want it. So its hard for me to share a lot of the grandkids pics with her.

Jan Messali said...

I tutor students who are missing school due to long-term illnesses. I go to different homes and we don't always have easy internet access. This would be great.

manthas24 said...

Wow! What a fantastic idea. I would use this to help connect the kids with instant research when we are out doing 'exploration learning'.

Linda Meyers-Gabbard said...

This would be great to us le when I'm at my mothers or out and about where there is no wi-fi

Anonymous said...

I travel a lot for business and always like for WiFi hotspots to connect to. Winning a MiFi would keep me from driving around in circles trying to find a good hotspot to send receive files and emails from. Can also use it on trips with the family so my wife & kids can download books to read for for those long trips.

Elisabeth said...

I would love to have this for traveling! I can't go without my internet!

Joyce said...

As a mom, i have found it hard to keep up with my children's needs for wifi. We travel as much as we can, and we barely even have money for THAT. As a mother of 5 children, with my husband and I, having
3 jobs in all, i could really use this free year giveaway. I don't have the money to buy it myself.

Beth R said...
